The Christmas Short Tonnage Tournament will start on Monday 18th December 2017 and end on Saturday 30th December
This is a Top Tonnage Tournament and I want to make it challenging, covering the time from Dec-40 to Nov-42, so two years in game.
Here are the details:
1. Each player will start with a IXA (2 month patrols), with the first patrol starting in Dec-40. Starting rank will be "KptLt" with a trained crew. Play will continue until Nov-42 or until sunk, scuttled, captured or removed from the tournament by other events. First patrol will be SPANISH COAST. All further patrols will be based out of Wilhelmshaven and rolled on the table below, no re-basing allowed. Should your boat require a 5+ month refit you get another IXA. You keep the same crew and upgrades. If your captain is out 5+ months recovering from injury, at the end of recovery you get assigned a new IXA with a new trained crew (no upgrades/skills retained). No upgrading or switching to a different class of boat, everyone will use an IXA throughout.
2. The Tournament will run until Nov-42 (Last patrol can start in Nov-42, but none after) or till there´s no more Boats available to send on patrols. If you´re sunk, scuttled, or captured you´re out of the tournament.
3. The Tournament is a Top Tonnage tournament - the player with the highest number of sunk tonnage will be declared the winner, even if sunk, scuttled, or captured.
4. The game is to be played with standard rules.
The Tournament is played with the following rules from the Optional Rules section:
- Increased Historical Targeting [14.3]
- Convoy Penetration [14.11]
5. Each player can only participate with 1 Boat. Use a festive name when registering your boat. e.g. U-Elf, U-Weihnachten ...etc. To register add an item to this list and copy the information block from the first item (My examples below) to the top part of your description. This part must be kept updated and is reference for the tournament director. Feel free to post your patrol logs, AAR´s below this basic information. AAR´s are not mandatory.
6. The tournament will start Monday 18th December, 2017.
