The match-ups of the first round (Game 1) will be random – no grudges allowed as I am too lazy to keep track of them.

In the following rounds (Game 2 onwards)  players  will be paired using the Swiss pairing system. Once players have completed their game in a given round they should send the results to me at the above email address.

Tournament Points
After a game the points will be assigned using the Blackjack scoring system.
Rounds will be randomly picked at the start each round and notified on the above website. Scoring sheet will also be loaded.

Conceding a game results in a 20-0 to your opponent with your opponent receiving 2250 attrition points for the purposes of a tie breaking.

Winning the Tournament
The winner is determined at the end of the last game (Game 5) according to the following criteria:
·         The player with the most TPs will be the winner
·         In the case of players have the same TPs, the winner will be that with the highest attrition score
·         If both TP and attrition are matched, then games where these players played each other during the tournament will be analysed. The winner will reflect the winner of that match up
·         If the players cannot be split then there will be a joint winner

Crowd at the UB interface
If one player feels discomfort with people being present you can request that the battle is played in private (ie password protected).

We have created a UB Discord Server that people can use to play their games. Alternatively you can use whatever method to play and communicate your games. It is called UB2 AUS. Please request an invite if you want to you join.

In the interest of consistency the terrain will be standardized as per below:
·         Hills – height 2
·         Swamp, rivers, marshes, ponds – Flat and Difficult – Height 0
·         Obstacles – Height 0
·         Buildings/Impassable – Height 4
·         Forests – Height 6 Difficult

Tables will be laid out using map packs courtesy of Epic Dwarf, they can be previewed here

The map applicable for that round will be randomly determined and notified on the above website. Copy of the map will be included.
