Unfortunately this tournament had to be discontinued after 2.5 rounds. All entry fees have been refunded. Sorry it didn't work out the way I planned.
I apologize for the delay. Had some real life stuff come up and just didn't have the time to get the round going. Working on it presently, all games should be ready by noon tomorrow (7/7).
Sorry for the delay everyone - I've had a very busy couple of weeks.

Hopefully this makes in game communication easier
Start date: May 2, 2017
Match-up: Titans vs Titans
Map: Solomon Pro
Note: Starting this round, all tournament games will be played on a 3 player map with the tournament director as Player 1. This will allow me to name the games in a way that will lead to more usable archives later. I have constructed the 3 player version of the map in a way that the amount of credits on each turn is exactly the same as the 2 player version.

Still just one match finished. Unfortunately as third player I can't see War Report once I surrender so no idea how the in progress matches are proceeding.
-2 to Speeder Amphibian attack is a very good step at helping Khrals survive open maps against Titans.
The tank-class problem... I'm not sure what the solution is, but I'm confident it's not +1 defense. Making tank-busters the only viable way to take down tank-class units is not a good idea in my opinion. Perhaps a 5% reduction in Borfly and Guardian armor-piercing against ground heavy? Perhaps the 50c cost drop? +1 GL and Amphib attack for tank and plasma? 7 mobility for plasma tank? Perhaps some combination of these ideas would do the trick.
Admittedly, it ended up favoring Khrals more than I expected. Swarmer buff after I made the map didn't help, lol.
But maybe it is balanced and we both just played the Sap side really, really bad??
(Ugh, Khrals are gonna go like 20-4 this round I bet.)
@ Bakes -
Not sure if we'll see any upsets (although there are a few matches I have my eye on), but I do think several of the lower rated players have a good chance of salvaging 1 point out of the match-up (if the two players each win one game the player that won faster gets 2 pts, and the player that won slower gets 1 pt).
Match-up: P1 Sapiens, P2 Khraleans
Map: Recon Force Pro
NOTE: All tournament games will be played on a special 3 player version of the map with the Tournament Director (account "Pro Tournaments") as player 3. The Tournament Director will surrender on his first turn. This way the Tournament Director will be able to access all replays through his account.

Additional Tournament Information
Time per turn = 24 hours.
Time per round = approx. 3 weeks.
Time per player per round = maximum of 12 days.
The goal of this tournament is to produce high quality games that will enrich the strategy of Uniwar moving forward. Please do not skip unless it's absolutely necessary.
All games should be played to the final cap. The number of rounds in your wins and losses will be used to break any ties in the final standings. Please play your best whether you are winning or losing. If winning, aim to win as quickly and efficiently as possibly. If losing, do everything possible to drag it out a few extra rounds.
Please endeavor to play quickly when possible and complete your games in the allotted time. If any player exceeds the maximum time of 12 days on the clock the Tournament Director reserves the right to call the game. Whether I choose to do so is at my discretion, and I will be reasonable about it, but I won't put up with stalling tactics.
Maps will be released a minimum of 7 days before the round starts. I encourage all players to practice them.
Amphibians and tankbuster units are allowed and encouraged. If any new units are released during the tournament they will be ineligible for the current round, but may be allowed during the next round if the tournament director believes they won't impede balance.

Spring 2017 Pro Tournament
Start date April 1, 2017. 24 players. Invitation only.

Round 3: Sapiens vs Titans
Round 4: Khraleans vs Khraleans
Round 5: Khraleans vs Titans
Round 6: Sapiens vs Sapiens
Each round will consist of a mirrored match on a carefully balanced map. If a player wins both games of the mirrored match he will receive 3 points. If the players split the games, then the player who won in fewer rounds will receive 2 points, and the other player will receive 1 point. The highest point total after 6 rounds wins the tournament.
Buy-in: 500 Uni-coins

Additionally, each round one brilliancy prize worth 500 Uni-coins will be awarded for the most impressive game. Any player may nominate one of their games. The tournament director will pick two or three of the nominations for all players to vote on (players may not vote for their own game).

For those calling me a favorite, it should be noted that I haven't played much with the new tiles, and this will really be my first time using the new units. We'll see if I can figure them out. I was a bit disappointed to find out that the Borfly I built couldn't attack after moving, lol.
I'll take hex, moments, Red and, by popular request, Willy
