      The draw has been done and now what?

      This section will help you to get your head around...

      Firstly have a look which group your team is and who are your opponents in the group phase of the tournament - it's worth to make a note points of contact of these (leaders / officers)

      Groups a published in #group-phase section on Discord, on the tournament website (challonge.com/awc_group_phase) and also on CoW Forum: forum.callofwar.com/index.php?…c-fixtures-and-standings/


      Then look at fixtures - who you are scheduled to play in September... you can check it on CoW Forum (link above) or directly on the tournament website (link also above). On tournament's website you have a Standings view by default, but you can change it to Matches view:




      By default the start of the first round is set up for 1st of September 2018 @ 16:00 UTC
      What time is that in your area? Here you go:





      However start of each match can be re-arranged by leaders / officers of interested parties. There is a flexible window between 1st and 10th of each month.


      All you need to do is to talk to each others and agree the start date / timeand then to notify Tournament Admin Team about agreed start date, so we can publish revised schedules.

      This is an example of agreement I made with a leader of WPU for our game:


      Monday 3rd of Sept 23:30 Warsaw/16:30 Chicago


      NB: If you have cross time zones matches - please ensure that both sides understand their start times
      .......................................................................................................................................................................
    • Please ensure that you have a correct option in alliance settings selected:




      YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO ACCEPT CHALLENGES

      The leader / officer of the first team in the scheduled pair sends a challenge to the second alliance (obviously after agreeing the start date / time or if that was not agreed on the 1st of Sept 16:00 UTC)


      Example:



      Untited Assault Force challenges WARHEAD

      PAT challenges PSF

      This is a default setting but it's also flexible - teams can change the way who challenges who. TALK TO EACH OTHER !!!
      .......................................................................................................................................................................
    • How to challenge the team?

      Go to the ranking, click on the alliances tab and use search function:




      Once you see the team you want to chalenge - click on its name - in the left bottom part you will see:




      Click on "challenge"

      It will give you an option to create a map

      Give a map a title (whatever you want) and short description and leave the next 3 sections as they are:






      scroll the screen

      then ensure that country selection is RANDOM and select EUROPE - ROAD TO WAR (10 players) map





      scroll the screen again
      and click on ADVANCED OPTIONS






      you can leave password blank so you won't need to send details to the opponent - but it's up to you

      then select peace period for humans 3 days, for NPC 2 days
      leave Anti-Cheat as YESand START GAME as NOW (please do not use when full) !!!





      Once you are happy with your choice click "Create Game"


      ...Within 24 hours from starting the game, the leader of the challenging side needs to publish in the CoW Forum or here on Discord the following info:


      Name of Alliance1 vs Name of Alliance2
      Date the match started
      Map number
      Line ups of both teams (in game name of each player on the map - both teams)

      There will be specific sections dedicated to record this info
      .......................................................................................................................................................................
    • In some cases opening the alliance from the ranking page does not work correctly after the search. This is a known bug and is on the list to be worked on by the Dev team.

      In the mean time there are a couple of things you can do to make it work corectly, or a work around that works every time.

      Typically if you try to open an alliance above or below the "stuck" one it will open normally, so you can close it and open the correct one. In some cases you have to try this a couple times.



      The other option that always works is to get to the alliance page from the page of a player in the alliance.




      Then click on their Alliance name




      And the alliance page will always open.

    • With todays update this bug is fixed, and opening alliance profiles from the ranking page should work properly for all again.
