Mission - Survive the Longest [Winner: lord voldemort]

Postby Sir. Ricco on Wed Nov 14, 2007 11:33 am

Mission - Survive the Longest
Bought to you by the Sir. Ricco Tournament Foundation

I was thinking about new tournament ideas, and this one came to me. This tournament is not about winning but surviving the longest. I am keeping it small the see how it goes.

Here is how it will play:
The game will have 16 players. Each the player will be randomly matched up in 1 vs. 1 game. (You could face the same player 2, 3, or even 4 weeks in a row. Not very likely however.) The player that loses the quickest (the least number of rounds) is eliminated. Now the winner of that match gets a week off (only when there is an odd amount of players). Week 2 will play the same as week 1 except one player gets to sit out. All odd weeks play the same (week 1, 3, 5, and ect.) and all even weeks will play the same (week 2, 4, 6, and ect.). Remember, it�s not about winning but surviving the longest.

I'll play, but I'm thinking that if you have a long survival tournament, games are likely to take more than a week.

I'll play it... Sounds like a good idea. Obviously, when you get to the final two, it will just be the winner of the game is the winner of the tournament, right?

Oh, ok I see what you’re saying. I should of made it more clears. It’s not how long you last time wise but round wise. 6 rounds are longer then 4 rounds.

Also, it becomes important to watch other games in the tournament. once someone goes out for the 'tournament round', you just have to last to a later 'game round' than them. So a certain degree of hazardous play becomes acceptable.

I think this is going to turn into a tournament of bogging down and defensive tactics... but what the heck, why not? ;) I'm in.

I'd suspect this needs to be held on either the SMALLEST possible map (Doodle earth) or the largest, for bonuses (world 2.1, I think)...

I think Alexander's would be a good map to play on. Classic is played on so much, and Doodle Earth is too small.
