SC any reason those pages were taken away?  They actually are very helpful to have during a tourney and taking them away rather than improving them and making sure they work seems like a step backwards rather than forwards.  

During tourneys it's not only important but just fun to see that data live as it occur.   Are they going to be available at the start of the tourney Koda is planning?

Hi Koda,

These pages have been retired; they were erroneously left up when the last tournament was taken down.

Regards,

SC

Edit:  To clarify, they were removed from the user interface more than a couple of weeks ago when the BL tournament square list was published.  They've now been tidied away.

It happens, glad it's cleared up now... hat's off to giving it a solution.

MY site will likely be 15 to 30 mins behind live data.  There isnt anything I can do about this. Also depending on how much data i will have to go though this time could increase. you are able to check on is on the sqs in game by going here http://elgea.illyriad.co.uk/#/World/TournamentSquares and clicking Details...

I appreciate everyone's input here. I am willing to take the blame for a misunderstanding between myself and the Roman leadership. It was never their intention to prevent us from participating in the tournaments as confirmed in this copied and pasted private message
17:05]<jtk310> would you mind to make a post on the forums confirming this was a misunderstanding? I'd like it if you mentioned that I was clear that anyone is free to make an attempt on our squares, and that we welcome their use in smaller future player run tournaments
 
 Sorry, rill, I didn't mean to take the subject off course. When I said 'tournament rules' I meant 'tournament square rules'

This was a simple misunderstanding. I invited some of the smaller alliances around me to join Rome if they wanted a better chance at getting prizes. We plan to fight for our squares, and certainly don't mind competition. I just figured local smaller folk with whom we have good relations might stand a better chance if they were on our side. I've talked this out with FattyAcid, and it was just a misunderstanding. He thought I was saying join or you can't participate. Now, I can't guarantee they will be able to take the square from us, but it was not my intention to imply anyone was not free to try.

Maybe this discussion about conventions for the current tournament should be its own thread.

I think it's at least possible that RE meant that mail as a friendly invitation. Perhaps it could have been phrased better, but maybe what they meant was "probably as a small alliance, you won't have much chance in this tourney. If you want to have a better chance of holding the square, would you consider joining RE?"  I think it's at least possible they didn't mean "stay off this tourney square unless you join us."

Maybe ask for clarification?

Don't assume the worst, I bet they were 1) trying to improve their own chances and 2) trying to improve your chances by suggesting that you join forces.  Diplomacy is part of tournaments too, and I did not see in that mail any threat or even an implied threat.

so, it's down to claiming a TOURNEY SQUARE? .. if it's not in use, doesn't conflict with another in house alliance tourney.. I'd say a Tourney Sq without API keys is just fine. the combat reports speak for themselves. Its a "marked spot" .

I'd say create a calendar type thread. There will be months and months after an ILLYWIDE tourney that there won't be another KotH type tourney worldwide. Lots of troops used up in ILLYWIDE tournies.

And if smaller alliances feel the competition is too great on a "marked spot" during ILLYWIDE tournies.. I PERSONALLY don't have a problem with them using ANY marked spot for an in-house tourney when the square is not in use. 

It sounds quite absurd to think the Dev's put it there for RE's use only. For WoT to say that we own a Western Realm Marker (with all the other alliances in the region) and don't even USE it 24/7/365. it's about a marked ILLY spot for tournies... WORLDWIDE and in-house IMO.
SMDH at the thought claiming a tourney marker.

I suppose it's normal to say which squares in ILLYWIDE tournaments to go for, but that doesn't mean you won't have competition for it.
