Win a copy of Sid Meier's Civilization IV

Anyone with interest in history and strategy shouldn't miss Civilization . Now fully patched, the fourth installment in the series looks incredible.  For me it was either to make Battle Ball, or to make a Civ 4 mod--I didn't make the Civ 4 mod :). If you win this I'd appreciate a review.

A Rule Change

The Civ A tournament has been changed to take place in the Large Box court. This is based on feedback regarding the advanced difficulty of competition rules has been set to std box, beginner's drag.

In addition the second place experience award has been rebalanced to 2500 points. The award formula can be described in this way: it is proportional to your victories, with 4th place player and below receiving half as much per victory as 2nd and 3rd.

n00b is worth less

Even for our most honest players, there exists too much incentive to hunt for the easy 10 victories a newbie will give you.

The absolute newbie is now worth only 2 victories until reaching level 2, at which point he will be worth 8 points. It should no longer be possible to win tournaments by hunting for their points. Now we can all relax and think about how to win this game of skill.

Tournament games which have already been played are not affected by this change.

RasmusEmil takes away the prize!

Indeed, it was a closely fought battle between the top two players of this game, d000hg and RasmusEmil. The only direct match between them, pitting d000hg's powerful strike against Rasmus's nimble defense, was in fact won by the former. However Rasmus was able to score 4 high value win's against hasph and Der_Wuerger, compared to d000hg's 2 win's. During the final day, it came down to an 11 point spread with one battle remaining for the trailing player. d000hg needed to match against a level 3 player, who finally appeared--after he had given up searching! Who was this mystery appearance? None other than BudderN, the game maker's apprentice!
