Life Ain't Fair: Totally Random [Round 3]

Postby D-Rock42 on Sun Mar 31, 2013 11:04 pm

Life Ain't Fair: Totally Random

Tournament is full, accepting reserves.

If I'm doing my job as a parent, one of the lessons I should hope my kids remember is that life ain't fair. You never know what's going to happen. Sometimes things go your way, sometimes they don't. In that vein, I introduce the Life Ain't Fair: Totally Random tournament. Every setting will be randomized, including how many players in each game. Each player will play 3 games (5 in the final round) in each round, and be awarded points based on how many people s/he beat in each game. The top half (by points) of the field will move on to the next round. Points will not carry over from round to round. The final round will be the first round with 8 or less players remaining. Freemiums welcome, but must keep 3 slots open for this tournament. I will user random.org to generate the randomness required for this tournament.

If any freemium players make the final round, all 5 sets of games would be figured out, but only the first 3 games assigned to freemium players will be created, with the final 2 games involving any freemiums being created as possible. (See Minutiae section for more info on how this would work). I will publish the games determined, but not created, in this thread.

  • Number of entrants: Any, minimum of 16- The last 10% of people who sign up will be kept as reserves.
  • Map: Random
  • Game Type: All of them: randomized selection
  • Play Order: 50% chance of either Sequential or Freestyle
  • Troop Deployment: 50% chance of either Manual or Automatic
  • Spoils: 25% chance of Escalating, Flat, Nuclear or None
  • Reinforcements: 33% chance of Chained, Adjacent, or Unlimited.
  • Special Gameplay: 50% chance it will be Foggy; 50% chance it will be Trenchy
  • Round Limit: 25% chance of 20, 30, 50, or 100 Rounds - "None" will not be an option, I'd like to be sure this tournament ends eventually.

Got everyone through here. As of now, Loose Canon is the 1st reserve player. The last 10% who sign up will be reserves, so tell your friends.

I will mark this tournament full sometime on April 15, and start the tournament shortly after that (after I get privileges after, of course).

I can't wait!
