if there are only 5 players I am not unhappy to not have to play the first round.

Nice. Which version are you going to play? Daily Master?

Since kaputtnik retreats the new opponent for WorldSaviour is hektor WorldSaviour - hektor

That's okay for me. You want to say that I should keep blue and Ektor switches to red I suppose.

Ah, that one face-wink.png

the-x - king of nowhere

Are you going to stream this?

I cannot stream this, i only can make a summary of the game if king wants face-smile.png

Okay, that's also nice. Dev versions are really awesome these days, but their downside will be that you cannot view the replay easily for years.

How are the colors distributed? Left player = color with the lower number?

Always left player is blue and right player is red

Okay

  1. Winter Challenge: - 24.1.2020 - 27 to 3 Islands -

I've uploaded the improved version of map yesterday: https://www.widelands.org/maps/27-islands-becoming-3/

As you asked me to do that, I'm guessing that this will be the map then. Which colors will be played?

A nice seafearing game where the participant will win who will settle first islands, this is the only long round.

What exactly means "settle"? Bring the whole island under safe control? What exactly is the win condition there?

It is autocrat, but it is obvious, that one player will conquer 2 of 3 since there are 3 it will in any case be a winner. (no Autocrat fully -> Landmass will decide, the player with higher landmass)

Well, okay

Further questions:

Will draw agreements be forbidden before the 2h-mark? I hope so face-wink.png

Will the matches be rated?

Draw Agreements are forbidden

If both players agree before game, matches will be rated

Okay

how are you going to make the pairings? it certainly cannot be with the swiss system, as that can malfunction when the number of participants is lower than number of rounds * 2

How could it malfunction? For me it looks like you could even play the swiss system when the number of participants is exactly 1 bigger than the number of rounds, you would get a round robin tournament then.

i'm not sure, but i was told that it may happen that there is no way to make the last round without violating the "you can't have the same opponent twice" condition.

since this comes from chess, perhaps it is a specific problem created by some specific constraint. Perhaps it is even just a specific weakness of old software doing the pairing. Frankly, I don't know.

Okay, I see, maybe this is possible. But one could easily avoid this with 5 participants: If the second pairing leeds to the fact that someone doesn't get an opponent for the second time, one has to chose another pairing.

By the way, "newest developer build" usually means main/master branch. It doesn't contain amazons yet as far as I know.
