Dear AOEO players,

As you may know, the ZutaZuta Classic tournament has been launched. Regardless of your skill in 1 vs 1, you’ll be able to bet during the whole event and try to win as much points as you can through bets. The system will work exactly as it worked for AOE3 tournaments.

Prizes

First place: $50
Second place: $30
Third place: $20

How to sign up

By replying on this thread or sending me a PM (Hydjo_ on ESCO and Hydjo on discord). You will receive a PM with further info. If you're reading this after the tournament started, you can still sign up.

How the system works
After you sign up, you'll receive a message from me with a link to your own personal betting sheet where you can enter your bets and a link to the viewing sheet which contains the standings as well as everyone else's bets. The system is hosted in the cloud (Google docs) and updates automatically as you place your bets. Where to enter your bets:

But it will be on your own personal sheet of course.

You start with 1500 points.
Which matches to bet on will be decided by me. There will be at least 5 matches to bet on in every round up to the round of 16, and after that you will be able to bet on every match. I will send a message to all participants if there is a new match to bet on. This information can be found in your player sheet too, of course.
Note that if a match is played early in the round and there is still some time, I may select another match in that same round to bet on so keep an eye out for that.
The system rewards participation, as there is a bit of inflation each match which only benefits people who participate (and win). Typically, the point total at the end of the event will be around 150% of the point total at the start of the event.

How the odds work

If the odds against player A winning are 5.00 (also read as 5 to 1) that means you get 5 times the amount of points you bet in payout if player A wins. So if you had bet 1000 on player A winning, you would get 5000 points in payout which is a 4000 point profit.
The odds update real time based on your and other players' bets. The odds are frozen right before the match starts and payouts will be based on those final odds, not based on the odds at the time you placed your bet.

If many people bet on a result, you will get less points in payout if it happens. This means you are not betting against a bookmaker, you are betting against the other betters and if a lot of them think player A will win but you think player B is underrated, it could be a worthwhile strategy to bet a bunch of points on player B.
In short, if you bet on a result which the community thinks is unlikely and it happens, you are rich! If you bet on a likely result and it happens, you also win but you are less rich. The more risk you take the higher your potential reward, but of course many well-placed safe bets can also add up to big profit. Develop your own betting strategy accordingly.

Rules

1. There is a maximum of 1000 points per specific result (like Player A winning 3-0) and 10000 on the results "Player X winning". The system will complain if you try to put more points on results than allowed.
2. At the bottom of your player sheet is your balance (points available to bet with). If this number reaches less than zero because of you placing bets, none of your bets will be counted so make sure it stays above or equal to zero.
3. You can't bet on your own matches except on you winning and/or you winning x-0.
4. You can donate points to other players, but only if they have zero points left.

NOTE: I would like to thank @mart for the help :)

its similar to otto, but you will use 3 control groups for army and attack move them rather than 2 control groups."

What do you mean, @eliot? Where do you see 10 premades? Furthermore, intentionally throwing games is against the spirit of any game and surely won't be tolerated.
