Wop Cup

A 1 vs 1 PvP tournament, based on an event idea from players for players. Put into operation with kind
support of

GM Hindenburg
Lumpis Nachbar

The WoP Cup is a 1 vs 1 PvP tournament with a group stage and a final round. Of cours the event will be
rounded over with a battle royal, on the final day after the finals, as bloody and dirty, as usual!

Bay below Punto Fijo

The execution – General:
The WoP Cup is divided into a group stage and a final round, all registerd players will be put together
in groups of 4, by a lottery.

No Storeships allowed within the tournament!
No teams allowed during the matches!
Ship class for the matches is exclusively FG!
Number of Ships is 4!
The ships will be put by the referee!

The players take their Ships and and Ammo on a raft from the referee and sail towards the bay afterwards.

The matches are held without wood and clothes
Entering the port during the match is not allowed, this means no reload of ammo during a match!

Every violation of the rules above immediately leads to disqualification from the whole tournament!

The  execution – group stage:
Within the groups everyone fights a match against each other with a max. duration of 15 min.!

The players fight without wood and clothes,without reloading of ammo and without repairing ships during
the match.Every violation of any of these rulesimmediately leads to disqualification from the whole
tournament! In this case, the discontinued match will be valued as a victory by difference of damage
(see below) with 3 % difference of damage.

If a ship gets sunk before the official match time is over, the match ends immediately, winner ist the
one, who sunk the opponents ship.

If at least one player is running out of ammo, before the offical match time is over, the match as well
ends immediately. Winner is the player, who caused more damage to his opponents ship until this
time! The difference of remaining percentage of hull must be at least 3%, otherwise the match will be
valued as a tie! The same rules will be applied, if there is no ship sunken as well as no player is running
out of ammo during the regular match time!

The following scoring system will be used for the matches:

Victory by sinking an opponents ship:        3:0 points
Victory by difference of damage:        2:0 points
Tie:                     1:1 points

In addition the difference of caused damage will be valued in the score table as well (i.e. 68 % by 63 %
gives + 5% for the winner and minus 5% for the loser of a match).

The first and second placed players of each group qualify themselfes directly for the final round. Depending
on the number of groups only the first placed players of each group and the best second placed players and/or
the best third placed players qualify for the final round to reach the required amount of players (16) for the
final round.

In case of a tie of points within a group, the direct comparision of the players is used to calculate the position
within the score table. If the direct comparisin is a tie as well, the overall caused difference of damage is used
for the calculation and if this is a tie as well, finally the positioning is based on a lottery!

The same rules re used for the eventually best second and/or third placed players except the direct comparision,
which is not available!

The  execution – final round:
The qualified players will be put together into pairings, by a defined key for the round of the last 16, 8 and the
semi finals. The winners of the semi finals will play the final, the losers the match for third place.

The max. match time is 25 min. In case of a tie (difference of damage below 3%), ther will be an extra time
of 5 min. If it is still a tie after the extra time, the winner will be evaluated by lottery! Further more the same
rules are applied as into the group stage!
