29 Apr 05.    It has not proven possible to re-fight game 3, so after consulting with the team captains have decided (for better or for worse) to let the original result between Schutzstaffel(FGM) and HOLMES stand.

28 Apr 05.    Adjudiacted the outstanding game 23 between Brosio and Fridericus and base on the position as I could see it, awarded a Tactical Victory (3pts) to Brosio.
 

13 Apr 05.    Well, here's the current position.  As at today's date we have 2 games outstanding:
Game 3 is being refought between Schutzstaffel(FGM) and Amerilias.  (Reasons explained in the 5 Apr update)
Game 23 between Brosio and Fridericus is stalled as at File 58 with Fridericus AWOL.  We have tried to bring Fox in to resume the game on Fridericus's behalf, but we are unable to access the file.  I shall wait until game 3 is complete.  If Frideriucs has not returned by then, I shall adjudicate the game based on what I can see of the game from Brosio's perspective.

5 Apr 05.    Game 3 needs to be refought.  The original CMHQ PL T3 player HOLMES has been ejected from the CMHQ PL club for a confirmed case of cheating, so I am informed.  We cannot be sure that his game in this competition was played fairly, therefore, a replacement is being sought for a rematch with Schutzstaffel(FGM).

4 Apr 05.    I know the Joust should have finished ages ago, but we have 1 game outstanding and 1 game that needs to be replayed.  I'm working on sorting these out.

17 Mar 05.    One of the games may have to be re-fought.  More details shortly.

14 Mar 05.    Game 37 between Dadsturf (Blitz A 4) and Clown (CMHQ PL T2 9) ended in a Minor Victory (2pts) to Clown.

13 Mar 05.    Game 20 between Kyzarkit BoB T2 1 and Kutuzow (CMHQ PL T1 8) ended in a Totak Victory for Kutuzow.

12 Mar 05.    Game 25 between Drackula (CMHQ PL T2 2) and Muso57 (BoB T2 9) ended in a Minor Victory (2pts) to Muso57.

2 Mar 05.    Well, the deadline date of the 28th Feb has come and gone, and we still have 4 games remaining to finish.  The point position is incredibly close with no one team at this stage having a commanding lead.  I have opted to extend the deadline (again) until 14 Mar in the hope the games will be finished for then.  Failing that, I shall request ceasefires, or alternative players to finish the games.

1 Mar 05.    Game 28 between Fionn (WHQ 4) and Geordie (Blitz B 8) ended in a Minor Victory (2pts) to Geordie.  In addition game 43 between OpFor (Blitz B 4) and TufenHuden (BoB T1 11) ended in a Major Victory for TufenHuden.

Posted the following E-Mail out to all players:
"Gentlemen (and lady)
I am pleased to announce the start of the 2004 CMAK Armoured (Team) Joust.  Can I remind you to:
1.    Re-read the tournament rules which are at Version 1.1
2.    Look on the Game Progress Page to see which battle your fighting in.
3.     Agree with your opponent what size battle you are going to fight  (I would urge you all to fight using the 5,000 point option, as I am sure this provides for a better game).
4.    The Axis player sets the game up.
5.    Use the password set by your team captain.  (Important)
6.    Advise me when you send your first file to your opponent, using the reporting format as explained in Para 20 of the rules.    (This is important as well)
7.    If you do send me any correspond please always include your Nickname and use my vulture.cm@dsl.pipex.com address.
This is the largest tournament I have ever run and to help keep admin to manageable levels I need to involved the team captains to a greater extent than I have done in the previous Jousts.  If you are having difficulties with your game  i.e. your opponent has gone missing for example, contact his team Captain in the first instance cc to your own.
That all for now, start your engines and get those tanks movingggggggggggggggggg   !!!!!!!!!!!!!
May the best team win !!!
Remember................. What we do in life, echoes in eternity...........
STRENGTH AND HONOUR  !!!
Vulture"

6 Dec 04.    Completed the Game Progress page which now becomes the page to watch really for the remained of the tournament.  The game settings have been changed and the rules upgraded to Version 1.1.  Please note that Fog Of War is EXTREME.

5 Dec 04.    Its my birthday !  LOL.  Uploaded the E-Mail addresses for the Band of Bothers teams.

1 Dec 04.    Did the draw and uploaded the details.  Planning to start the tournament on the 7th December.

31 Nov 04.    Recieved confirmation that both the Blitz and Band of Brothers can field extra teams.  This takes the tournament to 10 teams (120 players).

26 Nov 04.    The map has been replaced by one more in keeping with North Africa.  My thanks to the Pursit for designing it.  The original map designed by Lighthorse(FGM) will be used in the CMAK (Inf) Tournament instead.

24 Nov 04.    The Blitz has 2 full teams now.  Band of Brothers will definately field 1, maybe 2 even ?  I'll do the draw on the 27th when teams are confirmed.

21 Nov 04.    An update guys.  Recruitment has been underway for a couple of weeks now, however some teams have still to be sorted.  Proposed time scales are now:
        27 Nov 04    Teams are confirmed, as are the map and game parameters, and the draw is made.
        4 Dec 04.    Tournament starts.

8 Nov 04.    Put the following message out on the Blitz and FGM Message Boards.  (Message)
"Gentlemen, the CMBO Armoured (Team) Joust is coming to an end.  It is now time to start recruiting for the third and final tournament in the series, the CMAK Armoured (Team) Joust.  Full details have still to worked out, but the set-up will probably be a Quick Battle on a Large Map supplied for the game with an optional set-up of either 3,000 or 5,000 points of Armour.  Period and Armour selection to be advised shortly.  (1942 favoured at the moment)
My thoughts are to retain the same teams in so far as possible.  New players to the tournament in the first instance taking the places of those original players who can't or don't want to participate this time, but after that perhaps forming a new team. (let's wait and see on that one)
As normal guys, let me know by a posting on this thread if you are interested.  Team captains (assuming your interested), perhaps you could contact your current team members directly on this topic and let them know about it.  I'm thinking of a start date towards the end of this month.
Strength and honour
Vulture"

4 Nov 04.    I am pleased to confirm that Warfare HQ have confirmed that they will be joining in this Joust and fielding at least one team.  Glad to have you along guys. :-)
