You should get this topic made into an 'announcement' thread (is that what they call it?) - one of those that actually stays at the top of all the threads (:

It'd also be better if you create a topic in the Tournament Organisers group. That's where bart got most of the groundwork done, and where TOs would go to offer their services as organisers for the tournaments in the TPA year.

The first tournament was scheduled to start on 3Sep - has the thread been created yet? (:

And as for the scoring system, I think the TPA2 scoring system works just fine. Yes, there are differences in the number of games played, and stuff like that. But the fact is the odds of winning the tournament is still dependent on the number of players/teams participating, as you'll have to eliminate everyone else eventually anyway, no matter what the means are. Moreover, players are of course more likely to join tournaments which require strategies that play to their own strengths. Some may fare better at 1v1s, while others at round robins with points awarded and such. So yep, the players already should understand that when they join various sanctioned tournaments (:

Many thanks for that feedback. Yes, I am aware that there is a lack of interest that is perhaps due to my inexperience of how to progress things, We seem to have too few TO's interested in order to be able to progress on the scheduled date, so I am not sure of how to progress things.

Anyway I shall do what you advise and try and push forward!

I have a format that I will go on with for a wile. That is my Lufsen terminator series of 6 player. 36 entrys so that will be a standard then. Pick it in any time you like.

If necessary I also can make any tournament with single Knockout (best of five or seven) of 64 or 128 if you like me to run a premier or major.

Thanks guys!

flexmaster33, booked for standard slot for Jan. 14

Lufsen75, standard on 01-Oct - if that's not too soon. Perhaps an additional Premier/Major, though there is just one Major slot left for 22nd April, so perhaps best to go for a Premier earlier in the year.

redhedge47 - again, perhaps a premier rather than a major. I am not too fussed at this stage about trying to ensure that we have every style of tournament, as each TO has their own preferences, so I am sure that we will get a very varied selection anyway. The last "block" of dates from April to July could always be more specific if we seem to be missing a particular style of tournament by then.

Again, thank you all for the feedback; at least we can make a good start!

I would like the Mar. 11 Premier event. I will have a tourney with a minimum of 64 players. Lots of time to plan too.

I haven't looked closely at the schedule. I will definitely be in for at least 2 tourneys, including (I hope) one of the Majors later in the year.

While we're on that subject, I would very much urge that Premier and Major events be restricted to those who have completed at least one TPA Standard event. It's nice to see some new, enthusiastic faces, but a proven track record still counts for something.

I like Duka's suggestion about those wanting a higher level event to have completed a standard in the past. Not just because I have completed this "prerequisite", but I think it makes sense.

In addition, if it comes down to needing some slots filled for other tourney spots, let me know. I would be willing to fill if necessary as well.

You could just take a look at the number and names of the tournaments they've hosted. Gives you a brief idea of what their history is like, and it's easy to find if they've hosted a TPA/TPA2 tournament before (:

Thanks for that - initially I was concerned that there was little interest in the tournament this year, so I have been happy to sign up anyone who seems enthusiastic about entering. Now that dates seem to be getting filled, I can do as you say and be a bit more selective.
