A few of the proposed tournament formats:

- Keeping it as it was originally, with the highest-seeded players set to meet in the first round of a single elimination;

- A seeded single elimination, but with the more traditional format of having the highest-seeded players meet as late in the tournament as possible;

- (The current state) A single elimination tournament with completely randomized brackets;

- (Jadli's proposal) Having a set amount of first rounds (2/3 most likely) in which players are matched up against a random opponent. Here there is no elimination yet, but it is a point based system. After that, the highest scoring players meet in one or more knock-out rounds;

- Using an RNG to designate a winner and then be done with this mess.

I am fine with either version, so I abstain for now.

We will be using the bidding system. What does this mean? This means that every player will have to bid with in game money for their preffered faction. Say you want Portugal and the other player wants it too. You will both bid for it, the one who pays the highest amount wins. You have 2 days to send me your bids.

We will be playing an Stainless Steel Iberian Peninsula scenario with Portugal and Castille as factions, made by Mergor and Arbo. A test save will be posted soon.

It would be more balansed if there would be Aragon instead of Portugal I guess but ok.

Aragon has a mass recruitable, faction specific javelinmen which stats are insane in AR. Nothing would be less balanced then putting Aragon in. Both spain's and portugal's unique unit is an elite which can be recruited every 9-10 turns, so it doesn't make that much of a difference. I also couldn't make this a mirrored match, thus if a faction has a natural disadvantage somewhere, I made an artifical advantage somewhere else. In it's current state, it hardly can be any more balanced, but you are free to tell me your concerns and I'll gladly answer them.

To play your faction, you don't need any other files. Pluck the save into vanilla SS and you can play it without problems.

To preview the factions, you can use the starting saves posted in the different games. If you want the descr_strat for other reasons (such as viewing the map toggle_fow'd), ask and I'll send it to you.

A reminder to everyone that the saves were updated due to the discovery of a bug. Thus I ask the players who already downloaded the saves, to re-download the ones edited at this very moment. The ones who didn't download the saves until this moment are fine.

It basically means you've gotten unlucky, and the Pope gave you a mission to stop fighting Christians or else. There's not much you can do about it I'm afraid, it'll cost you some public order but that's about it.

On the plus side, if you kill either your FL or the Pope, you're back in Wink

Well... admin could destroy Papal state or kill the Pope and then my excommunicat would be abolished. On map this size every small advantage can become decisive so I prefer this to be fix, but Hannibal told be to go on with the turn so I guess I have to live with it.

PS Yeah I was unlucky to get that mission but if I am not wrong then in every 1vs1 match player from one side will get that mission sooner or later.
