DEFCON Tournament underway

Postby Chris » Sun Sep 17, 2006 12:44 pm

Our Beta Testers are currently running through the first ever Defcon Tournament, and Round 1 has now come to a close. 18 Players were selected from the Beta volunteers, and they've played in 3 games so far with 6 players per game. The top 3 players from each of those games goes through to Round 2.

We plan to run a number of Tournaments after the games launch.
You can see the status of the current Tournament here:

We've seen some astonishing acts of violence and betrayal so far. Playing games that are part of a larger Tournament increases the tension level for everyone, and also makes the Alliances even more trecherous - Players are free to plot and scheme in advance of the game.

Here are some screenshots from Round 1 of the Tournament:

Yeah, I don't want be US with all that comming at me. :D

Agh, it's a torment seeing all these people from the forums playing the game! :(

I really hope I'll get into the next IV game's beta.

EDIT: by the way, is there any prize for the winner(s) (including the post-release tournaments)?

There are one or two videos but it may be only limited to betas for viewing. Plus, I'm still currently encoding my version :P

You were unlucky with your territory/alliance as you were pretty much surrounded

Notice that SuVir was the only green. The other two teams were his enemies, to his west; The American force of Aaargh and LLamaBoy, and to his east and north; the EuroAsia force of Nutter, fireship4 and danielkarling. If SuVir was part of the EuroAsia alliance he could have worried less about his east and north coasts.

this... this is evil.

Showing us all this while making us wait...

cruel, I tell ya.




Now, commence with the after-action reports. We want to hear the depths of depravity and backstabbery involved.
