Title: Eifel-X-MAS-Cup 2018
Post by: AndYpsilon on 16 September 2018, 11:09:13
Hi mates,

once again it is time for our traditional PC SWOS tournament!

The 13th edition of the Eifel-X-Mas-Cup will be played on saturday, 01.12.2018.

Schedule: We'd like to start a few hours earlier this year at 11:00 to finish on time around 20:00. Reason: The traditional x-mas market in Sistig will take place on that day and most of us would like to take part to drink some mulled wine and other hot stuff ;) Of course everybody is invited to that event so it would be great if you join us!

System: PC SWOS 96/97

Rules: Same procedure as every year! Free choice of teams, random pitch, equal off, 3-minute-matches.

Tactics: ONE custom tactic per player. Everybody who doesn’t have an own tactic may choose any custom tactic of the save disc. Exception: If someone plays against the creator of a tactic, the tactics’ creator has to decide if his opponent may choose his tactic.

Teams: Based on 96/97 version only!

Group stage: DIY league (2 matches against every player)

K.O. rounds: 2 matches, ET if replay, PENS if replay

Number of participants: 16-24 players

Sleeping places: Unfortunately, the small pension we booked in the last year is sold out this time. We can offer to sleep in a hotel in Sistig. This would cost approx. 30,- Euro per night including breakfast. If you are interested to book a room, please contact us as early as possible so we can check exact costs and availability.

Starting fee: 5-10 Euros (depends on the number of participants).

Food and drinks: Beer, coke and water will be available at the location. We still have to calculate the prices. Food will be ordered at a delivery service.

Traditional friday evening schedule: One or two beer in our local pub  :P

Looking forward to meet you again at our oldschool tournament!

Greetz Eifel-Crew

I doubt that the Danes will join this time. I can't get time off from work on friday (the travel day), Klaris seems to have lost interest in SWOS completely, and Andib will probably not go by himself.

Sorry to disappoint you guys because you always have a great tournament and would really like to support it.

Yeah I forgot to wrote after tournament last week. I spoke to Klaris the day after and we wont join this year. Sorry mates.

Would have been great to go with you guys out and get some beer after the tournament.

I can't join either, sorry.

Anyway, would you be interested in playing the tournament with SWOS port? Or at least setup 1 computer with it to get some offline testing? That would be very helpful beta testing.

@Danish SWOS Crew: Sad to hear, but I can understand, see some of you in 3 weeks in London!

@Playa: Depending on the count of groups we can maybe have a side table build up with a modern PC and SWOS port installed.
I have two adapters from USB to Amiga-Port to test it with my Laptop (Win10) for example.

That's very cool. Could you somehow play it on a CRT to get a proper feeling in?

Hi AndYpsilon, Paider and all people for Eifel X-Mas Cup. As you know I am starwindz and currrently developing new total pack for SWOS Win32 port.

New total pack will have new feature named 'Custom Pitch Generator'. In custom pitch generator, all components of SWOS pitch will be defined and assembled together individually in order to generate complete pitches by user or random selection.

My idea to provide Eifel X-Mas Cup with generated pitches based on components by beta version of custom pitch generator. Components are mainly created by Carling. Since pitch generator is still in development phase, not all features are supported yet but applicable components will be stadium shadow, pitch pattern and some adboard.

Would you be interested in in playing with new pitches and SWOS Win32 Port? New pitches can be included in SWOS Win32 Port used for this tournament.

Hi mate. Thx for your request and congratz to these efforts. Always great to see dedicated people develop new SWOS features!

Naturally, we will play our tournament with the oldschool origin version 96/97. No chance for innovation here ;)
However, if we are able to set up a testing PC for the new SWOS port we might be able to test your new developments as well. So thanks again for the offer  :)

Congratz to Andy for taking the title after 4 times (I believe) being Second! Also congratz to runner-up ELmichaJ!
It was a great tournament, super organized by the Eiffel Crew. The plan was to finish the tournament at 8 pm - and we did it!

The "highlight" for me was the friday evening event on the Kegelbahn where I performed pretty good - unfortunately I could not reach that level at the SWOS tournament and I finished on the 7. place. The Eiffel Crew predicted that ("after a good performance on the Kegelbahn the tournament performance will be the opposite"), and they were right.

At saturday evening we have been on the local x-mas market in Sistig which was also very nice. Thx to Paiders family once again to give me a sleeping place and great breakfast meals! :D

The way home was a true odysee and took 11 hours. I ended up in the same train like Schulle who left 2 or 3 hours after me. ^^ Next time no more Deutsche Bahn - I should rather take a flight.

See all of you guys next year! greetz

Congratz Andy!! Nice win! :-)  And another great Xmas Cup. Love those pictures, and lovely Sensi drawings too.

On a side note: I was checking old Xmas cups and found this:
http://sensiblesoccer.de/community/tournaments/view/132

2005, first edition ever, is completely missing results and table of Group B. Where is it? Any clue? I cannot remember if we lost those sheets or whatever?! ???
Tournament id number 132... LOL, incrediblly low!  ;D

Thx everyone for attending once again - especially our guests from Hannover and Berlin. It was Schulle's 10th participation (WTF!?), ElMichaJ was there for the 7th time and Bomb for the 3rd time. Great, friends!
Sorry when I heard about problems travelling home - but you are right Max: No glory for the Deutsche Bahn :D

Thx to Paider for these great drawings, so it didn't matter that much that the cups arrived a bit late this time - Deutsche Post sucks as well :D

It was great to see that it's possible to end a tournament a bit earlier than usual, so we could go for some Glühwein and Kakao later on ;)

@Playaveli: There is not missing a whole group. We were only 7 players at that tournament. But Craizinho is somehow not on the standings - but his results are there and he is also on the cross table. Very strange bug!
The tournament that is missing most of the results is this one: http://sensiblesoccer.de/community/tournaments/view/4231
There is only semi final, 3rd place and final. We entered everything back in the days but when ss.de went down the results have been lost somehow :(

Es war natürlich wie immer ein super turnier. Bei mir drückte nur der zeitliche Schuh und die Familie im Hintergrund. Aber ich muss meiner Firma (codecentric.de) dankbar sein, dass ich das machen konnte. Spiele waren wie immer klasse und super spannend. Habe sogar den Bomb zweimal in einem Turnier besiegt, was ich glaube ich noch nie hatte. Nur der Pino ist und bleibt mein Angstgegner.

Pai war im Halbfinale eigentlich auch besser als ich, aber manchmal reichen 30 gute Minuten von 180 eben doch ;) Gegen Andy das Finale war auch spannend und diesmal war er mal wieder der bessere.

Das Turnier habe ich komplett nüchtern gespielt, war ne seltsame Erfahrung. Hoffentlich muss ich das nicht zu häufig machen, aber ab und zu kann das vielleicht helfen ;)

Schulle hatte auch endlich wieder mal gute Skills gezeigt, ich musste zum Glück nicht im KO gegen ihn ran, hatte er doch den Andy am Rande der Niederlage.
Pino ist nun auch in der Top Spieler Klasse angekommen, weiter so :)

Kegeln war auch wieder super :) das ist einfach ein muss :)

Rückweg war auch ok, keine LKWs und wenig Verkehr. Um 3 Uhr nachts zuhause und ab 8 wieder Familiendienst ;)

Danke an die Eifel Crew und alle weiteren Teilnehmer für das tolle Turnier
