29 Jul 04.    Put a further message out on the Blitz CM MB.
"We now met the minimum number I felt was need to make the tournament viable, namely 8 players, and therefore I can confirm that the Blitz 2004 CM TCP-IP TOURNAMENT will definitely proceed. I am sure that more will join this select band over the coming weeks.
Assuming all the tournament details are can be finalised quickly I intend to start the first round within the next 5 days.
My initial thoughts with regard to the game sequence are as follows:
1.    CMBO Encounter
2.    CMBB Attack / Defense
3.    CMAK Encounter
4.    CMBO Encounter
5.    CMBB Attack / Defense
6.    CMAK Encounter
Points Scoring:
5    Total Victory
4    Major Victory
3    Tactical Victory
2    Minor Victory
1    Draw
Points Per Game Approx: 2,000.
Duration of each game: 25 turns.
Force Mix: Combined Arms
Force Restrictions: Yes (Details to be advised)"

28 Jul 04.    Advertised this tournament on the Blitz Message Board with the following message:
"I've decided to start recruiting for my next tournament, and as normal I've tried to make it slightly different from what has been seen before.
This will be a CM TCP-IP Tournament, and is not for the faint hearted !!!
There will be 6 games to play in total. 2 x CMBO, 2 x CMBB and 2 x CMAK.
Players will play 3 games as Axis and 3 games as allied (1 from each type of CM)
To keep the impetus in the tournament, each round of games is to be completed within a 3 week period. (or quicker if possible)
Points will be awarded for various level of victory.
The eventual winner will be crowned the Blitzkrieg 2004 Combat Mission TCP-IP Champion.
Scenarios and periods to be confirmed in due course, along with the web site.
Please add to this thread if your interested in participating."
