Seriously, some of the team are stuck in a hurricane zone and need to get settled before they can pass the prizes out. We are aware of the delay and are sorry for it.

If it helps, the person who would be handing the prizes out is now living in a land of munchkins and red slippers.

It shouldn't matter.They can easily tell what alliance you were in during the Tourney.And I wouldn't think thiere would be any troubles with giving you your prizes,and medal(s)

For those who have asked (and there have been many) we are still waiting for many of you to switch alliances before we finalize a master list of winners. Remember, we have quite a few awards to give out! We want to get them out ASAP, but we also want to avoid players who write us soon after and say "Can you move this here instead?" Within the time I wrote this I received 2 more IGMs, asking me about a person leaving an alliance. 

We will let you know ASAP. Please pass on!

Hi everyone,

It's been a bit windy down here on the Florida Atlantic coastline, but all is good and we're now getting back on track.  I'll be sorting out the medals, award and prizes in the next couple of days.

Just to make clear, it's absolutely fine if players leave alliances after the tournament has finished.  After the last one we ran (where GM Rikoo absolutely correctly said that players should stay in their old alliance - at that point in time)... since that tournament, we now record the alliance that the player was in at the time the combat occurred.

So please feel free to leave the alliance that you are in, you'll still get credit for any winning participation in the tournament.

Best,

SC

Does this mean that players who change alliances in middle of the Tournament could get prizes for every sq that alliance they were in during the Tournament  as long they took part in combat when they were in the alliance that won the sq? (like how the storm player moved to nCrow could they et prizes for the sqs that nCrow and storm won.)

Yes, that player will get prizes for both alliances (so long as they participated in the combats on the squares), and is not prohibited in the ruleset for this tournament (even if such behaviour is not necessarily entirely in the spirit of a tournament!)l

We may look - if/when we run a tournament in the future - at taking an alliance membership snapshot at the start, and applying 'original' alliance memberships to participants.  But not this time, because we didn't say that in advance.

Best,

SC

well that's disappointing but not shocking. One issue I do see with taking a snapshot at the start is that you guys even less then a day notice and people do need time to find out if there alliance is taking part and to find new alliances if they aren't taking part. Maybe a snapshot  48 hours in will be better. In Tournament I based the prizes on what alliance people were in at the end of the Tournament.

Why not just whoever ends in the alliance?
