That would be a fun quick tournament even, should I set it up?
It's been attempted before a few times, but too complex/difficult to pull off...thus far.
Complicated how so?
I actually stand corrected. It has worked [I was even in the tourney
would be better suited to answer that question. He was able to make it work where two other legitimate attempts failed, but I have no doubt he had to put in a ton of effort. I think the most elaborate and painstaking part is the "draft." Kudos to Merch for successfully pulling it off. Also, it seems players just won't take the games as seriously as clan games, since there's no stake in losing. Or maybe that was just the case with me. Who knows.
My advice for anyone looking to host such an event: You may not necessarily want to assign teams using random.org, but perhaps you can do half and half, where the first two rounds are drafted players and then everyone else is assigned a team randomly.
Merch's last post is very telling: viewtopic.php?f=679&t=129490&hilit=clan&start=285#p3594258
Example of one that failed: viewtopic.php?f=93&t=117259&p=2591881&hilit=clan#p2591881
I may sound like I don't like the idea, but I think it's a great idea. It was cool to meet new players. I'm just saying I don't envy whoever wants to host something like it.
