Games are paired, so each matchup will be played both ways. Each player will be able to choose his forces using the normal force selection system. In each round, all players will be playing on the same randomly generated map for both games.


Any, volunteers for the first battle? (When it released that is!)
 
I'm still a bit of a nooB in this game and am too intimidated to sign up for this.
I shall have to be satisfied to live vicariously through the FGM exploits ...for now.

I ask that you reconsider. You're absolutely correct to realize that as a Noob you will likely get creamed in your first game. Then you will be matched with another "loser" more at your level. If you beat him, you will face a tougher opponent in Round 3. If not you will face another Round 3 "loser" more matched to your skills. In other words, matches 2-5 will not be as uneven as you think. You will learn a lot from opponents you would otherwise never face. And . . . you get to play the game more! What's the downside? ;)
