This report is compiled as of midnight server, Jan 30.
2,987,140 casualties
About 57K new casualties.  This is notable decrease.
 
Peace has locked down the north and west flags.
 
Of note to me was the appearance of Grieves at the west flag, causing 6,999 casualties for the XP.Cool
 
GOON has reclaimed the east flag.  I may have overlooked GOON losing possession of this flag yesterday.
 
As always, Good Hunting and Good Gaming to all!Clap

For the sake of Illy history, I figured it would be a good idea to post a copy of the Leaderboard in this thread.  I took the liberty of doing some minor changes to the layout, but no changes to the substance.

Jan 31, 2011.
 
The King's First Tournament has concluded.  PartyBeerClap
 
StarCongratulations to all the participants.
 
StarCongratulations to H? for winning the #1 Overall and 3 flags (NE, S, SW).
 
StarCongratulations to Peace for winning the #2 Overall and 2 flags (N, W).
 
StarCongratulations to Curse for winning the #3 Overall and 1 flag (NW).
 
StarCongratulations to GOON (E) and VIC (SE) for each winning 1 flag.
 
On the final day of the tournament, there were no possession changes at any flag.  Nor were there any serious challenges.  Several of the flags saw attackers seeking Cmdr XP (me included).  Peace continued to reinforce the West and North flags.  I was impressed as the end approached and passed by the huge numbers of Peace armies leaving the West flag.  That was nice work with setting your occupation hold times, Peace.  Impressive.  Thumbs Up
 
3,025,758 total casualties.
38K new casualties today, 7,013 suffered/caused by my armies at the west flag..
(Sorry, Peace Smile  I was just picking up the Cmdr XP)
 
The West flag had the highest casualties at 1,221,165 being 40% of the total casualties.
 
The Northeast flag had the fewest casualties at 73,255 being only 2.4% of the total.
 
H? held 2 flags (S, SW) for the entire tournament.  H? did not control the NE flag for only 1 day, 9 hrs.  The 3 H? flags are also the bottom 3 for total flag casualties.
 
In the earliest days of the tournament, H? moved quickly.  As did Curse and GOON, Good, and Dlord.  VIC and Peace joined a little later.
 
VIC initially moved against H? at the S flag and Dlord at the SE flag.  Progress was slow with VIC dividing her resources between the flags.  But after a few days, VIC realized she needed to concentrate on a single flag and VIC picked the SE flag to the chagrin of DLord, who had captured the SE flag early.  VIC sent army after army. Dlord reinforced and reinforced.  Finally, VIC broke through and captured the flag.  VIC reinforced and days passed.  After several days, Dlord made a push to retake the flag.  But Dlord was unable to field as many troops as VIC.  VIC retained the flag to the end.
 
Peace was little slow in moving in force in the tournament.  But when Peace did move as an alliance, she was very impressive.  Peace assaults were very well timed.  Many, many members involved.  Very good teamwork, Peace.  Peace captured the N flag and held it for 27 days, 6 hours.  Curse made a late push in her quest for the #2 Overall which did knock Peace off the flag for a couple of hours.  But Cuzdeath’s capital is very near the N flag and he was able to retake the flag with 1 unit Cav army! 
 
At the W flag, Peace showed the depth of her economy.  This flag was wild.  So many possession changes.   I am grateful that only 1 flag was this active as I spent most of my report writing time just figuring out the possession changes at this flag.  Curse made a strong challenge at this flag.  Everyone else saw this flag as easy pickings for Commander XP and getting a listing on the Leaderboard (I confess this sin of vanityLOL.)  Peace took a lot of abuse to win this flag and hold this flag to win the #2 Overall.  Very admirable.
 
The NW flag, there were some early possession changes.  But soon, Curse had the flag in her paws and never let go.  Curse amassed 30 days, 6 hrs on this flag.
 
Thank you all, Illy Staff and Participants, for the entertainment.
 
As always, Good Hunting and Good Gaming! Clap

Hi all,

We'll be officially announcing the named (alliance and player) winners, distributing prizes, and providing some sort of stat-fest for everyone over the next few days.  Bear with us as the UI v2 launch gets in the way of things!

However, the Tournament has been a great success by any standards and we want to thank all the alliances and individuals who have participated in it.

Thanks, and congratulations, to you all Clap

We also want to give vast amounts of thanks to The_Dude for his exceptional commentary, which was both fair and balanced as well as regular and entertaining; a difficult combination to pull off successfully but The_Dude managed it effortlessly.  Star

Best Regards,

SC, and the whole Illyriad Team
