I had a dream.... about beta (MapMaker Killer series: MMK)

Postby DJENRE on Tue Feb 08, 2011 2:36 am

LIST OF BETA MAPS UPDATED

Hi all,

I played beta Middle age and an idea came through. Could we organize a tourney directly when a beta map shows up.


Players will fight in a tourney and for those who reach the finale, they can play directly VS the creator of the map.


If the map creator is ok, he tells me how he wants the finale :
    Number of players in finale
    Format of the finale : 1vs1, 4 players, 6players...
    Settings of the finale : standard, assassin, spoils, reinforcment, fog...
    How the final will work : best of three games, round robin...

He can also give preferences for the whole tournament. If not, I take care to do a tourney wich will match the finale. ;)

Once it's done, I take care of organizing everything :
    Create the tournament
    Found players
    Send games....
Until the finale where the creator will show up to fight other players on his own map. Should be a minimum of three games in finale (maybe 5). Depending the format of the finale.

Play those tournaments on beta maps give the opportunity to players to test it quicker and give a feedback on map foudry forum. We could also add a link to the thread while creating the tourney.
I think Map foundry is too often read only by cartographers...;)


Maps in final forge are for now :
show


So I would like to know if :
    You agree with that
    You have any other ideal about it

Could be a nice idea, let me know.

Sincerely
DJENRE

Hi xxxxxx,

You should know that MMK are tournaments set to help cartographer to have better feedbacks about their maps.
Maybe you'd like MMK IV to be set on your map: xxxxxxx
Many cartographers are already in MMK series. (some are already playing, some are waiting for the Beta test) SEE HERE!
You can read the main rules if you have time. I put a format in the spoiler to fill if you want.
Don't worry if you don't have a lot of time for this, I can take care of everything and you just show in the finale. ;)

Sincerely
DJENRE

The problem here is, most people play in tournaments for the winner's medal. What happens if the mapmaker wins, he/she gets a medal for winning one game? The other person in the finals comes away with nothing after all their hard work getting there? I think the only way you could do this is if the mapmaker was in the tourney from the very beginning and had to play/win just as many games as anyone else to win it. That's possible now, if said mapmaker is interested.

Yes, you're right about the medal and the final. Except if we tell the players that is a special "beta" tournament and that the mapmaker reach the finale directly. But I don't know if it's against cc rules. If it's not, we could do that.
ANd mapmker is not getting a medal after winning 1 game if it's best of 5 in finale for exemple, he will need 3 victories. But problem remain the same for a finale 4 players round robin for exemple.
CC rule tell that nobody can win a tournament without three games

I think that it would be a good idea as far as I could see as long as the finale is best of 5 it should be okay according to tourney rules. I do agree about the final but as long as it is stated in the tourney info I see no problem with it.

Great idea. When Thailand goes Beta, I will participate. If grifftron has enough slots, I'm sure he'd join my team.

I recommend the following settings for Thailand:

Settings

Triples, automatic, sequential, no spoils, chained, sunny

Roster

8, 16 or 32 teams, depending on interest

Format

Make it single elimination format, winner of single game advances until there are 4 teams left.

Finale

These four teams plus the mapmaker team play in a round robin, one game against each team. Team with best record from round robin wins, in case of a tie, the winner is the team that won head-to-head. If multiple teams tie, another round robin commences minus the team that clearly lost until there is just one winner.

Satisfies 3-Win Requirement

This 5-team round robin format ensures that the winner has won at least 3 games. To win the round robin, a team would need record of 4-0 or 3-1. Only way 2-2 can be best record of round robin is if all 5 teams are 2-2, necessitating a redo of the round. Any subsequent winner would then have to have won at least 3 more games from the redo round.

Of course, of course.

Any player, including mapmakers, can say he doesn't want to join...

This thread is just to see the main feeling about this idea.

Every beta tourney will be checked with mapmaker and only those (mapmakers) who want to participate will do. ;)

Yes but we don't care.
Somebody else told me about medals.
In those tourney, I think the winner will prefer to say "I won a mapmaker on his own map on tourney" than "I won a tourney medal".
That's just to make it funnier.

Ok, that's cool, we'll determinate details later but that's nice you already want to participate and filled the form entirely.

The only thing is that each team play only one game VS the mapmakerteam in finale.
I can make a format until there are 3 teams left + you = 4 teams in finale. Then :
    a) If u agree a 8 players in double. we could play 5 games in total (with points). Each finalist team will play then 5 games VS MM (Map makers)
    b) If u prefer 4 players in double. we could play twice each other team = 6 team match in total for each team in finale including 2 VS MM.
What do you think about it?

The main thing is : if a player or a team reach finale to play MM, he(it) want(s) to play at least 2 or 3 games...

Ahhh natty, you're too humble. Don't you see it isn't the challenge factor that makes it a grand finale, but the celebrity factor? Especially if the mapmaker's name is included on the tourney name, or prominent in the rules, you know, played-up theatrically. I remember the very first time I played a mapmaker on his own map, I was tickled, but I was the only one who knew I think... because not many people read the signatures, much less the map threads.

So, I do think you should publicize the mapmaker's name somewhere in the tourney thread, so players know who the mapmaker is when they reach the final.

Otherwise, I think this is a wonderful idea, and a better integration of the different areas of CC. The Foundry could make some good use of Tourneys as Beta testing grounds, using custom settings and high-quality players. Also, it would be good to know if a map makes a 'good' Tourney map; after all that's the main area of map usage besides Clan challenges.

First of all, thank you so much, u exactly understand what Im trying to do.
    1) I want the people entering the tourney know why they're playing, and who will be the mapmaker they'll found in finale.
    2) so name of the mapmaker will be in the first lines of the thread in large letters.
    3) and also a biggest feedback from players while games are still beta
    4) When I did that post, I hoped nobody move it into tournament folder. I wanted that idea confirmed by cartographer first.

As many people feel ok about it, I'm going to create a quick example of what could be the thread for those tournament. I'll make it with vietnam cause I already have settings from mapmakers. See ya!
