1. Tournament name: World Cup of Risk 2011
2. Link: viewtopic.php?f=92&t=148589&start=0
3. TO: WorldCup4James
4. Categories: Best Medium sized tournament; Most creative Innovative
5. Reason: WorldCup4James took the time to create this tourney based off real life World Cup. Had to take the time and figure out all the singles maps, along with regions and countries and continents. In addition he used graphics to assist in visualizing an actual Grid that allowed players to follow the action without looking at all the games. This was a fun and exciting tournament that gave plenty of chances to get to the later stages.



1. Tournament Series: The KISS series.
2. Link: Many links to many tournaments. If required, can post.
3. TO: Greenoaks
4. Category: Best tourney series.
5. Reason: Greenoaks created a simple concept and has executed it very well. Keeping tabs on all the tourneys he has in this series can be quite a task. Yes, they are 1 vs. 1 games, but many tournaments require many updates and games followed.

1. Tournament name: HA Presents a Love for LUX
2. Link: viewtopic.php?f=92&t=151456
3. TO: HighlanderAttack
4. Category: Best 1 vs. 1 Tournament
5. Reason: HA is a master at creating simplistic, yet large scale 1 vs. 1 tournaments. He sets down rules and regulations that players must follow, and he must also ensure players are following those rules, ensuring fairness for all players. This particular tournament, in addition to others like it, required the best win percentage, with a minimum number of games to be played (75). The end result was 1681 games played overall with the winner playing in 116 of them. That is a lot of tracking.

1. Name: Zombie Apocalypse
2. Link: viewtopic.php?t=146840
3. TO: deantursx
4. Category: Best Small Tournament
5. This was a very creative tournament using a small number of players, which allowed players who lost and became zombies to actually make it back to human status, giving them several chances to stay alive.


1. Name: Gods, Devils, and Everything in Between
2. Link: viewtopic.php?t=147463
3. TO: deantursx
4. Category: Best Small Tournament
5. This small scale tournament allowed players to move up and down a ladder, until the eventual winner became the sole remaining "God" over the rest of the players. Depending on the type of match-up it was, actually determined the map and settings, making it both easier and more difficult for certain players, presenting an extra challenge.

It's only fitting that people don't read what is needed to make a legit tournament nomination considering that many people don't read tournament rules on what is needed at sign up.


And to be fair, the link on the home page just says "Who was the Best Organizer of 2011?".
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

True, I would have worded that differently if I had posted it.

Nevertheless, if people don't read the first post their nominations will most likely not be valid.

1. Mystery Door
2. viewtopic.php?f=92&t=148375&hilit=mystery+door
3. DD2
4. Best small tourney, Best mixed, Most creative
5. DD2 ran a few of these, at least 3. The idea was that were a certain number of "mystery doors", decreasing in number each round. Each round, each player chose a door and played everybody who chose the same door on a random map, needing a win to advance. However if you were the only one to choose a door, you received a bye. This forced players to be dynamic, having to win in different conditions and on different maps each round. It also added some mental games. Players were able to see what doors people chose the round before, and in the case of II and III, the past tourneys, and try to figure out which door would get them a bye. You could count on me to pick door 1 though, only straying once, just to lose on door 8. This added strategy, which also took away nothing in the way of simplicity, is what made this tourney so fun in my opinion. I strongly believe you should consider this tournament.

Thanks. I registered your nomination except for the "Mixed" category. It doesn't fit there because all games were standard.

Name: MotoGP Season 1: (Superbike Series)
Link: viewtopic.php?f=89&t=142850
TO: tokle
Category: Best Tournament Series
Reason: Every tournament in this series has been well organised and well presented, with the right balance between having individual tournaments that are not too small, yet all counting towards an overall scoreboard.

Name: Top v Bottom
Link: viewtopic.php?t=135349
TO: paulgamelb
Category: Best Mid-Sized Tournament (960)
Reason: A novel idea and a nice way of moving through the maps alphabetically, without only starting at the beginning like many TOs do.

Name: Initech Series
Link: viewtopic.php?f=89&t=92755
TO: Peter Gibbons
Category: Best Tournament Series
Reason: All very well presented a thought-out, with a good range of maps, settings and themes for the various tournaments to keep everyone happy.

Name: Blood Money: USA
Link: viewtopic.php?t=130770
TO: MrGlassB
Category: Best Assassin Tournament, Best Mid-Sized Tournament (504)
Reason: A great twist on regular assassin tournaments, which made every game count and added an extra dimension to the strategy. Plus I could've won had I not lost over $1,000,000 in the penultimate round...

Name: THE LOTTERY I
Link: viewtopic.php?t=137289
TO: DJENRE
Category: Best Assassin Tournament, Best Small Tournament (192)
Reason: A quick tournament with a nice idea that made every game high-pressure, with an all too apt title!

And last but certainly not least:

Name: College Hoops 2010-11
Link: viewtopic.php?t=129381
TO: flexmaster33
Category: Best Sports League Tournament, Most Creative/Innovative Tournament, Best Huge Tournament (22752)
Reason: An exceptional tournament, which was extremely well organised. With over 150 players each with individual maps and settings, it must have been a nightmare to run. On top of that, each game had to be looked at in order to generate detailed results. Flex also came up with a way of translating unique aspects of the sport into a CC format in order to create a very realistic and accurate tournament. Tournament of the Year in my opinion.
Important Tournament Notice

The data for ALL of my tournaments has potentially been lost. I am working to recover it but as I am away on business all of this week, there will be some delay. Sincere apologies.

Thanks!! I Just wasn't sure if mixed meant doubles, singles, trips, and/or quads or if it included different types of standard.
