2 7/20/2022 10:31:00 PM August 1914 Moderator Message Gentlemen:

Welcome to Round 2 of the ninth BPA-Sponsored Paths of Glory Tournament! As most of you participated in Round 1, the following might be repetitive but bear in mind we do have some folks who are just starting this event.

I will be the game moderator for your match, feel free to direct any issues or questions that arise directly to me at gregorit@yahoo.com. (I am in the US EST time zone, set your response expectations accordingly.) While I may sometimes directly intervene when perusing the various logs, I generally wait for players to reach out to me unless I see something that merits immediate intervention. My response time is generally 24 hours or less; any longer, please reach out to either of the other two GMs, Paul Hubbard or Michael Dauer. Should you not be pleased or satisfied by any response I give, don't hesitate to escalate to BOTH of the other GMs and I'll defer to their united wisdom. 😃

Getting started:
- Introduce yourself to your opponent, comments setting expectations regarding gaming experience, responsiveness, time zones, anticipated extended absences are also welcomed at this time.
- If you want to modify the default scenario conditions, agree BEFORE bidding for sides. (Example: Many folks like Mandatory Offensive reminders.) As a reminder, supply warnings are mandatory.
- One of you roll a six-sided die, 1-3 = CP bid first, 4-6 = AP bids first. Then conduct bidding for sides.
- If the sides need to be switched, and you can't figure it out via the "Edit Game" function, don't hesitate to reach out to me. (Important: If you use "Edit Game" to reset players, make sure you log out of ACTS and come back in before drawing cards!)

Match Information:
- The Official round 1 kickoff is Thursday, July 21st, 2022, but you may start immediately. You'll have 120 days to get to an outcome, we're looking for a finish by November 18, 2022.
- As a reminder, those of you with a loss face elimination from the event if you lose again. (And if you didn't play in Round 1, you're in the same boat.)
- It is STRONGLY recommended that a consistent notation be applied when listing out your moves and that you detail all Reserve Box transactions.

Game Etiquette:
- Not everyone is a native English speaker so do not assume any tone or intent to any particular communication. Be polite and seek clarification easily and often if you don't understand something.
- The ACTS log is the official record of the game, the GMs do not want to review e-mails or Vassal Logs.
- Life happens: If you are going to be absent for an extended time, let your opponent know.

Tournament Site: https://www.bitterwoods.net/paths-of-glory-2022-bpa-tourney/

Good luck to both of you!
