Rival f. Catan Marathon starts on March 1st
Monday, 25 February 2013 16:49

The third 'The Rivals for Catan' Marathon in the Catan Online World will take place from March 1 (10 a.m. CET) to March 4 (10 a.m. CET). Each day, three different Theme Sets will be available:

Friday: The Era of Gold / The Era of Barbarians / The Era of Prosperity- Saturday: The Era of Progress and / The Era of Intrigue / The Era of Explorers - Sunday: The Era of Merchant Princes / The Era of Turmoil / The Era of Sages

Just to remind you: At the suggestion of our community, a special scoring system was introduced for the 'Rivals' Marathon. The points for the single score and the city score are equal to the victory points obtained in the game (only the points necessary for winning the game are counted). In addition, the winner receives a bonus of 5 points.

Example: In a game of 'The Era of Gold,' player A (12 points) wins over player B (8 points). Player A receives 17 points for his total score, while player B receives 8 points. (By the way, in 'The Era of Barbarians' you must reach 13 victory points to win the game!)

Each game completed by a player counts towards the city score of this player's COW city. The sum of all points scored by all players of a city are divided by the city's 'Active Citizens factor,' thus providing the city's final score. The Active Citizens factor at the beginning of the tournament counts for the entire tournament. All players with Plus account may participate.
