Revised Tournament of Champions (ToC 15) "Arctic Convoy"
Many of you have asked for a new Tournament, and I am pleased to launch the new Revised Tournament of Champions (ToC 15). However, as I need a short break from the duties of running these tournaments, as well as being incredibly busy right now, I have asked two of the veteran members, namely Bayder and Prastle, to run this particular tournament. They shall follow-up shortly with all of the wonderful details. I hope that you enjoy it ! Warm Regards, Deltium

Current Rules (Subject to change as they are still being discussed due to the length of time the last TOC took.)
NEW RULES WILL BE ADDED FOR FIGHTERS AS CARGO!
With the release of 2.0 coming we will not be adding an engine change for the tocs. Simply stated which I am sure @panther can elaborate here. Allied fighters will be considered cargo on another allies Carrier. THEY DO NOT HAVE TO ATTACK! When for example a placement has allowed a magical fleet to suddenly appear. They can remain as cargo. Of course the allied fleet in question will have to do something on their turn. Sadly the engine does not allow this and forces them to attack. Thus a player can move them in combat anywhere and return them in non combat to land on the same ac. EVEN though this is against the rulebook about having to have combat etc. Yes they can be edited off and returned but it would be better if people just use common sense and avoid having to use the editor and the questions that might arise.... this link has some more info
THE RULE! AS PER @Panther and @Cernel
Since all fighters on any carriers are considered cargo, at the start of the turn and until they launch, cannot launch after the carrier moves and you are never obliged to launch any fighters from any carriers (unless you want them to engage in combat):
Any fighters owned by the turn power that are cargo on allied carriers in hostile sea zones can stay in the same zones without attacking anything for the whole Combat Move and Conduct Combat phases. If they do so, they can still launch, move and land, if wanted, during the subsequent Non Combat Move phase.
Any fighters owned by the turn power that are cargo on carriers owned by the turn power, as well, can remain cargo to their carriers for the whole Combat Move and Conduct Combat phases (thus not attacking anything, no matter what the carrier does, and being removed if the carrier is taken as casualty). Then, if the carrier didn't move, during the Combat Move phase, nor retreated, during the Conduct Combat phase, they can still launch, move and land, if wanted, during the subsequent Non Combat Move phase. In any case, fighters must remain cargo for the whole turn, if not launched before the carrier, they are cargo of, moves.
As the current TripleA program (incorrectly, for this game) always forces you to launch all your fighters, please be sure to enable edit mode and remove any fighters you want to keep as cargo (especially any fighters on allied carriers inside hostile sea zones you want to keep inside the same zones without attacking anything). Any such fighters you remove will be considered being cargo, during both the Combat Move and the Conduct Combat phases. Then, as long as the carriers, they are cargo of, have not been removed, still with edit mode, add them back, into the same sea zones as the carriers they are cargo of, during the subsequent Non Combat Move phase (if the carrier already moved or retreated, be sure not to move the fighters on it, that you just added back) (edit mode doesn't allow adding fighters back as cargo, so you will have to wait them landing, to be assigned to any carriers).
In case any doubts might arise about what is cargo of what, upon removing or adding any fighters, be sure to make it clear (by immediately notifying your opponent and at least one tournament organizer of your choice).
