Attention ladies and gentlemen, at the request of several players, I am proud to announce the Sleuthville AVH Tournament 2011! *trumpets blare and streamers fly*

The format will be 16 detectives, randomly paired off into teams of two by a third party, to face one other team. For this competition, players going through Cairo will have a day taken off their totals. The winning team will be the one with the lowest combined number of days for hunt completion. Failed hunts will not count against you. You will not be disqualified. If you fail your hunt and would like to start another, you may, but the day count will start from the official start date of the round. Irene will be tracking progress using her new program, so this can be considered as further testing.

The rules:

You may:
-travel to Shangri La the night before, but NOT start the hunt
-use a travel kit
-use head of faction privileges
-use agencies and apartments to swap gear

You may not (enforced only by the honor code):
-use sidekick cases (for either clues or travel)
-enter second/third detectives, etc.

The winning team(s) from each round will go on to the next round until a winning team is determined. In the case of a tie, both teams will move on to compete in a triple threat pair matchup. The last team standing wins. Anyone who would like to join, please POST here. Participants will be gathered on a first-come, first-served basis. The first matches will start on Monday, April 25, 2011.

Each following round of the competition will start on the next Monday at 0:00 sleuth server time, unless one of the matches takes longer than expected. In that case things will be adjusted accordingly and you will be updated as soon as possible.

O wow, I thought in the last round that only the Captured hunts count. That's unfortunate;(

You are right. Only the Captured hunts will count. - so your failed hunt gone does not make any difference to the score you get, since you have a non-failed hunt.

If you had started your hunt two days late, without failing a hunt first, the count of the days would still be counted from the official start date.

If you go back and have a look at the test tournament that was run. Riza had one hunt which she started one day early. Even though she captured, the hunt was seen as failed, as it started too early. - the other hunt she finished started on day 2 if I remember correctly, and was a 2 days hunt until capture. Still, the daycount in the tournament was higher, as the count was from the official start date.

Ah, so does that mean the points that I currently have on the scoreboard is actually a day lower than what it is showing? I started the failed hunt on the same day as everyone else, followed by starting the captured hunt the day after (Wednesday) making my total for the captured hunt 5 total days (with the Cairo day -1) and a total of 4 points. I'm only asking because I'm not sure whether we tied for a final round or not:D I certainly don't want to let my teammate down:)
Thank you for bearing with me! This is my first tournament and I'm having a blast!

Hm... I understand it is a bit tricky. Let me try to clarify:

It's easiest to see from the first round.
In The Pen is Mightier team, both Vulkie3 and Heimlich Von Victor started out at April-25. Heimlich failed his hunt, and started a new one on April-26. Vulkie3 captured on April-28, and Heimlich captured on April-30. Vulkie3's daycount is 4 days, and Heimlich Von Victor's daycount is seen as 6 days (even though he captured on the 5.day of his hunt). Since they both went through Cairo, they ended up with 8 points.

The Twin Godesses team both started out on April-25, but Magdalene failed her hunt, and started a new one on April-27. Night Queen captured on April-28, and Magdalene captured on May-1. The daycount for Night Queen was 4 days, and for Magdalene it was 7 days, even though she captured on the 5.day of her AVH. Since Night Queen went through Cairo, their number of points were 10.

Essentially everyone will have the same day count no matter what. The count is days in the tournament, not days in your individual hunt. The only exception being if you went through Cairo on your successful hunt. If you finish on Day 4 of the tournament having gone through Cairo, your total points will be 3. If you finish on Day 5 of the tournament having not gone through Cairo, your total points will be 5.

Last round I failed my hunt on Day 2. I traveled back to Shangri-La and started a new one, four days later I finished on Day 6 of the tournament. Because I had gone through Cairo, I got a deduction of one day, but the days from my failed hunt still counted against me. So I had a total of 5 points since it had been 6 days since this round started, minus one because I went through Cairo.

Arch Villain Caught!
The notorious criminal Mordred "Monkey Face" Musgrave was brought to justice by Magdalene after a painstaking hunt in which the heroic detective successfully tracked the villain around the world.

Finally! I have had the worst luck with this tournament! Lots of pirates during traveling, tons of repeated clues and people clamming up!

I have now added the next round to the hunt. For those of you reading the bracket layout, please bear over with the fact that this round is also called 2...

If I am correct, I believe that this last round is a final match between 4 teams. - and we might have a winning team in the end of this week?

Good luck to everyone. Seems like in this tournament everything can happen. (To be honest, I am very surprised to have come this far myself)

The match-up for Round 3 of the tournament is as follows:

Two Flatfoots and a Cat vs. The Pen is Mightier vs. TIA Operatives vs. Peachikkas (?)

This may or may not be the last round of the competition depending on if there are any ties. Fight for the win. Good luck to all! :)
