Once the code is written (which really won't take long to do), it could run hourly for all the server cares!

My only slight concern is that I'm mindful of those players who wish to create a temporary base around a tournament square.  I've always slightly thought that people who are willing to forego all the potential benefits of picking the perfect city location (for sov etc) and/or (with moving tournament squares) exodus a city in favour of a temporary advantage over tournament location should be commended for their dedication.

If that's not particularly an issue between choosing either 6 months or 3 months, then I'd personally pick 3.

Best,

I think 3 months better then 6 month. either way works for me. as far as people who like moving near Tournament sqs i would like them to post there idea here if they truly care about it.  Thank you for looking into this for us. I do have a large question. for my last Tournament you guys made it where you cant leave your alliance if you have troops on the Tournament sqs will you guys do that again when i run my next one even though the sqs have changed?

Hey Koda,

3 month rotation, random within each region, is going to happen.

As to the first rotation start date; rather up-to-you tbh.  If you're not far away from running another player  tournament, then let me know whether eg 01JAN or 01FEB suits best as the start date for the rotation.

Best,

SC

Yes, the ban on leaving/kicking alliances will carry through with the square rotation.

I suggest that squares change when the seasons change:  Dec 1, March 1, June 1, September 1.  That will make it easy for people to remember as it will track with an existing game mechanic.

This would mess up my plans for the next Tournament

I planned to start my Tournament the 2nd of May or April. (i need one day to change the sqs in the database) and I will also be doing the Tournament during the second time the sq change which by doing it by the season will mean June which will run into my holiday plans and many others so I won't start it then. which will push the Tournament to next march as I can't run it in Dec too. for the same reason i cant run it in June.
