First Round Matchups (completed on September 30, 1999)

Battle of the Atlantic Banner


Bruce Monnin is the Gamemaster for the BPA War at Sea PBeM Tournament.

The field is set for the first BPA War At Sea PbeM Championship. There are 11 first round matchups. Those 11 winners will advance to the second round. To fill the field out to 16 spots, we will then advance the five players who were defeated by the least amount of POC. Ties be be resolved in favor of the highest seeded player. These 16 players will then be reseeded and brackets will be made for the tournament to follow from there on out.

In the future, if a player drops out, the open slot will be filled in the same method (except that no player can advance after losing more than once). Given the 3 month time limit and adding a little slack for the WBC and summer vacations, the deadline for this round will be September 30th. All games not yet completed will be adjudicated on October 1st. The winner of each game advances to the next round. In the event of a draw, the Allied player will advance (remember this when choosing and bidding for sides). However, tie games will still be reported to AREA as a tie.

At the beginning of these matches, both players will secretly indicate their preference of side to play by sending an email to myself (Bruce Monnin at Paul Selzer and myself will email our preferences to assistant GM Vince Meconi.. If both players choose the same side, the GM will order a die roll, the winner of which will have the option of starting the bidding for that side by offering a POC handicap to his opponent. The handicap must be in increments of 0.5 POC. The second player can either accept the non preferred side and the offered POC handicap (if any), or offer a greater POC handicap to play the preferred side. Bidding will continue until one player accepts the other player's POC handicap offer.
