My window of opportunity to start playing in a tourney has just about gone, I didn't expect it to not have started a month later. :P

I'll wait for the next one and see if I've got the time.

Cheers.

P.S. Dissy: I'll try get on to finish our game at some point, been really busy lately.

On the same note as RSE_Chris, I've got about a month left until I move from where I currently am into a new place... if the tourny isn't off the ground until a few weeks before April 20th it's going to be tough for me to organize mp games...

ergh


we have 9 players atm.

list:


Dissy
Carcher
JBL
ZeroChance
ruthlessferengi
mickar
Susanoo
Chaos
Swimmingwild13

I propose a structure like this:

1st ROUND: 3 matchs in the 1st round involing 6 players
with 3 players byed to the next round

2nd ROUND: then you are left with 6 players, the winner of each tie playing a player who had a bye

FINAL ROUND: then you are left with 3 players, this is the final stage

it'll be a 3man league, each player plays each other twice

Rules:

no edo training.
players cooperate on their system sizes are talk to the other player, restarts maybe necessary to come to an equal population spread.
player top end of bracket picks the settings, player at bottom end picks race pairing, then top bracket player chooses 1st race out of paring.

-- Sound good?

I'm quite certain at least one of those players listed won't play, leaving 8.

Single knockout tourney is better.

An estimate of the time to complete this tournament should be made then all entrants should committ to the time frame.

As I stated before, I'm almost certain at least one person wont play.

Dissy,

I did not know you were waiting on me I thought this tournament was your baby.

for 3 player final I do not understand how it would work. give me some kind of example of bracket I will fill in players if you like.

what I would suggest is;

to go with 8 player standard bracket (since mickar says 1 has backed out) and hope other are still ready to play

TC,

I'm not confirming that one (1) has backed out. All I'm saying, given the history of all the tournaments on this site, is at least one (1) person either won't show up to play or will start but be unable to finish.

Since the proposed 9 person tourney will last weeks, imho, I'm almost certain one (1) will not play. If all 9 players are ready to commit to 6 weeks of play then lets start.
