I wouldn't be oppposed to doing a "DSL vs. the CC World" tourney.
Instead of one massive 64 team bracket where you could easily get culled out by bad drops or bad rolls early on, I'd prefer to do pool play that fills 2 8 man brackets from either side.
The 2 8 man brackets would be double elimination or best 2 of 3 series, and then the final would be best of 3 of 5.
Would anyone like to volunteer to help me run the CC side of this?
Although, I still state that overall I think it is a bad move for CC to ban private tournaments. I can understand limiting them but banning them all together will ultimately hurt CC.
Here is a link to last year's tournament. The bracket got a little whacky because I had some late adds.http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=pY67mHTWN_oTM6nry4tyjHQfirstname.lastname@example.org&t=7885761212401447979&guest
