Here's the rules:

OK folks, I'm willing to be the organiser for a FCOL tournament since there seems to be some interest. Here's a draft of the rules, please read them and comment on them. My own explanation/comments in parts are green.

Federation Commander Online Tournament Rules

1.General Tournament Rules
Ships shall be selected and games shall be played according to the latest revision of the Origins Federation Commander tournament rules as posted on the federationcommander.com website forums, except as modified here.
A. Ship Selection: The Organiser of the tournament shall set a date for ship selections and only ships available in the Federation Commander Online Client at that date shall be eligible for selection.Other restrictions shall be the same as the Origins ship selection rules. (Paul Franz and others are working hard to add more ships to the client and the selection is increasing rapidly, but I don't want to advantage later selectors over earlier ones. If FCOL gets more use, it will encourage them to put more in the client. Later tournaments will have more ships available than earlier ones, but that's no different to Origins really.)
B. Time Limit: Games shall last for eight turns or until one player concedes. You don't have to play all eight turns at once, you'll have three weeks to get the game in, and it should be possible to save the game in mid-game. Wins matter, points will only be used as tie-breakers.

2. Online Specific Tournament Rules
Communication between the Organiser and the Players: The Organiser shall post deadline and match-up information on the federationcommander.com site. The Organiser shall also email players with this information. Announcements may also be posted on the starfleetgames Discus forums and/or the ADB, Inc. Facebook page. While the Organiser shall make every effort to ensure that players are adequately informed, it is the responsibility of the players to make sure they know the deadlines and matchups, and understand the rules.
Emails to the Organiser: All emails to the Organiser must have the name of the tournament in the subject line (e.g. "FCOL Tournament #1") or else the email wasn't sent. (This is to make it easy for the Organiser to find the email(s) later.)
Signup: Players sign up by sending an email to the Organiser. Once all the players are signed up, the Organiser will set a date for the ship selections (to determine which ships are available for selection) and players have one week after that date to select their squadron and email their squadron to the Organiser.
Play Deadlines: Once the Players are informed of their match-ups, they must arrange between each other a mutually agreeable time to play the game on FCOL. The Players shall have a certain amount of time to make these arrangements and complete the game. (These deadlines may vary from tournament to tournament.) It's up to both players to actively pursue the match; if one player makes a reasonable effort to arrange a game and another does not, the first player is awarded a win. If neither does, both are awarded a loss. "Reasonable effort" is in the judgement of the Organiser. All emails between players attempting to arrange a game should be carbon-copied (cc'ed) to the Organiser so that the Organiser has evidence that players are actively pursuing the match-up. If both players are actively pursuing the match but circumstances beyond the players' control prevent it from happening, the Organiser may extend the deadline or adjudicate a result at his option.
Number of rounds: This will be a four-round tournament, that way, with three weeks per game, it should be over in three months.

OK I'm taking signups now. To give everyone plenty of time to pick squadrons and sign up, you have two weeks from next Monday 16th August 2010, to sign up and get your entries in. Entries will close Monday 30th August 2010. After that, I'll post random match-ups and you'll have three weeks to get your games in.

To sign up, please email me your name, FCOL callsign, Federationcommander.com username, and your selected squadron. My email address will be in my profile.

I don't know how many people will sign up, but I'll run the tourney for four rounds. That will take three months (4 x 3 weeks).

I think I'm in. Will have to time some bills and such correctly so I can resub to Fedcom, but I am contemplating my ship picks.

So, Krellex and SavedFromWhat will make seven. It would be great to make it 8!

It is eight as Terry forgot to list my name (he had earlier sent me a confirmation). Based on earlier posts, I expect ScoutDad (Tony T.) will be signing up as well. So, I expect we will have at least nine. If someone among us is willing to step up to Assistant GM, I expect Terry could play as well if he wants and that would get us up to at least ten.

I'd really love to join, but may not make up my mind till later... my father has just come out of hospital after a major operation and I need to be sure that I'm not going to have other priorities in a couple of weeks time.

Also I need to decide whether I want to try where voice isn't mandatory, I really disliked playing without voice, far to much concentration on tracking phases etc spoilt my attempt at FCOL. I'm assuming though that most others would accept using some voice software, so I think I'd join if other factors don't get in the way.
