You'll get a spot on the scoreboard when it's created, will that do? ;)
(my turn to get trumped by jrh... heh)

Heck, we have a TPA graphic for the tournaments, I'm sure someone will whip up a membership card REAL quickly. :lol:

This looks interesting, and looks like a good reason to stay on CC to play a limited number of games.

About the rankings... how exactly will a champ be determined? By combining all of those scores? B/c I feel like the way it's currently set up, you can become a champion by just joining every tournament and being lackluster... whereas players who only join 5-10 tournaments a year and win in 75% of them should really be up top (I'm thinking of how Tiger only plays in so many tourneys but maintains a high rank).

ya, we just need someone good at that stuff to put a bit of effort into it. You can ask Sir. Ricco, he's the one that made the logo. I don't know what you would do with it though, unless you wanted it to be your avatar or sig.

you won't win just by joining every tournament. If you win 5 tournaments you'll be up there, remember there are multipliers, so you get more for each win than you'd think. Also, as most of these are bracket-style, the winner will play a lot more games than the person in last, so they will get more points for that

Thanks for the credit for the idea guys :lol:

But big thanks to bart for taking the idea forward and lead role.

Any road up - this will mean lots of different TOs with different styles have tournaments contributing to a bigger competition - it will be lots of fun and something for everyone through the season.

Some generic graphics would indeed be cool - perhaps a carto might help - this is something that can be worked on as we go along I guess, although would be nice if we can get it sorted before the big kick-off.

The trophy cup is one graphic that's been done so far...

you 2, fuzzy pengui knows about this, right? He's the one that is gonna be naming the tourneys and such from now on, and most of the time he would leave the stuff in parentheses off of the name, but having TPA at the end is kind of important


With this new database, we have the ability to change a tournament's title (and change the topic it links to) at any time without the problems that came with the previous system.

Can you post links to the tourney threads here? That way they can be easily found.
Is your date on the schedule, the date the tourney will be announced/posted?
