Legends Cup VII – Seeding Information & First Round Battle Times

KLONDIKE, CPA Central Headquarters – It is the time of the year in which the biggest tournament on the CPA Central calendar is unveiled. Sixteen armies will have hopes of winning the most historic and prestigious competition in CP Armies, but only one army will lift a trophy previously won by only the Ice Warriors, Nachos and Rebel Penguin Federation.

UPDATE #3: Due to the death of the Night Warriors & Fire Warriors – the Hairy Bears will take the Night Warriors’ spot and the Ice Warriors will take the Fire Warriors’ spot.

UPDATE #2: Due to confusion over the state of the Lime Green Army, they will be granted a three-way battle with the Army Republic and Tacos.

UPDATE: The Pretzels have dropped out and are replaced with the Fire Warriors, while the death of the Lime Green Army means that they are replaced by the Tacos Army.

The Legends Cup enters a remarkable seventh year, as it continues to be an essential part of the summer plans of our website ever since the tournament was launched in 2010 by Iasage. In every year of the Legends Cup, we have seen upsets galore, with armies that previously were small and unknown growing into a major force in CP Armies. The Legends Cup has caused wars and shaped our community as it becomes a key tournament that the majority of armies target victory in. With a huge xat fund award (6000 xats) and the prestige of winning such a tournament, the Legends Cup continues to be the best tournament hosted by CPA Central.

The format is similar to previous years, but it has been decided that the Qualifier Round seen in a few of the more recent tournaments would not take place this year. This is simply due to the fact that we do not have 24 armies to invite to the tournament and there are, at the best of times, barely ten armies on the SMAC top ten. Should any of the armies invited decline an offer to take part in the tournament, or die before their battle takes place, armies will be offered a position based on the continued ranking on the SMA Central Top Ten. To start with, only the top six armies on the SMAC top ten have been invited to take part in this years tournament. Below is the bracket for the Legends Cup VII, with their seeding in brackets next to the army abbreviation/name, followed by the times and dates for the first round battles. Note that seeding is organized by the Top Ten Armies of July 17th on both CPA Central and SM Army Central.

  1. “head judge”

    is that where you judge how other people give head? bc where do I sign up?

  2. Kingfunks, I’d like to make sure you are on the same page with the community in that you are very much a person of interest not only with CPAC in general but also in regards to this tournament. Are you going to be judging any battles in this tournament? It would be very troubling if the active leader of the Water Vikings were to judge battles, and could possibly make a decision that would unfairly assist your army. As a WV legend, Zak refrained from judging certain battles he could impact unjustly, and I did the same as a DCP advisor.

  3. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  4. ^^^^^^^

  5. ^^^^^^^^^^

  6. I will not be judging, purely posting all the reviews, previews and battle information.

    The judging will be given to my other high ranking members of staff (Lorenzo, Atticus, Jodie) – I may only help in a few round one battles that are really irrelevant to me (eg. SR vs WN) if they are short of judges.

  7. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  8. False. Zak judged 2015 LC finals WV VS RPF and gave RPF the winning vote.

  9. ^^^^^^

  10. LGA shut down AR automatically wins right?

  11. Where do I apply for judging

  12. If you turn up on the day at http://xat.com/thecpacentral the head judge at the time will decide if you are needed or not.

  13. What kind of match ups are these lol

  14. Can’t wait to do this!

  15. Sorry babe, that’s my job
