CnC Boss Generals replay competition Rules
----------------------------------------------------


1 - Entries will be taken from August 26 until September 11. All entries should be submitted in the specific 'Boss Generals replay competition' forum that are now live and public on www.gamereplays.org, Boss Generals replays section.

2 - To participate, you must be a registered member of GameReplays (free registration). Any amount of entries will be accepted by any member and any kind of game will be acceptable as long as it doesn't have more than four players, even 3v1 or free for alls of any kind are accepted, in standard or CTF game modes. AI opponents aren't allowed and will automatically invalidate the replay.

3 - The 1st place prizes are two 'Battlefield 2' game from EA games (or any other catalog game of the EA's catalog). The 2nd place prizes are exclusive Command and Conquer Generals posters, which the winning players will be able to choose from a list of 3 - "box art", USA and GLA themes. If for some reason one of the first place winners want a poster instead, he'll have the right to offer a trade to a second place winner.

4 - The prize winners will be both player's of the match if it's a 1v1, and one for each member of the winning team if it's a team game. If it's a free for all, the last two man standing win the prizes.

5 - The competition will be judged by the CnC Boss Generals staff from Gamereplays, which can not participate with any replay, and the following criteria will be used to internally rate each replay:

* (20%) Innovation / execution - either a new strategy was used to great effect or an existing strategy was executed in a flawless or extremely effective way (ie. little to no loss vs massive damage caused)
* (25%) Balance - a very easy game for one player or team isn't a very entertaining replay to watch. Since this is a replay competition the match must generally be comprised of similarly leveled players or of teams that balance each other out in the match. Strong comebacks and continuous battles are a good show of balance in a replay.
* (25%) Pace - Games with long and pointless stalemates have slow pace and are a pain to watch. Long games can be fun to watch when battles are continuous and the tide of war shifts to one or the other side constantly, but sitting in the back and only defending doesn't make up for a good replay to watch.
* (30%) Strategy - battles continuously fought over at the same place, without exploiting flanks or hitting the opponent hard with units he's not prepared to face, are linear, boring and overall lack strategy. Strategical action where multiple different tactics are used to good effect, luring and surprising the opponent, are highly valued.

6 - The winners will be contacted and asked for his personal info to receive his prize a couple days after the result is announced.

Either the other guy in the 1v1, the other guy on the winning team in the 2v2, or the 2nd to last guy in a FFA.

How do "new" and "old" strategies relate to CtF? Clearly, MDVees would be old, but the choice of what to go after first, what to do with the builder unit. Is it possible for those sorts of things to be old/new since CtF is in itself relatively new?
