Signups will be for a random amount of time. I'll imput a variety of choices into Random.org and will live with the choice. It could be an hour it could be 2 weeks or it could be anything in between.
There will be a somewhat random number of players depending on how many sign ups there are within that period but when we start all players will be randomized into an order. At that point We'll randomly pick a type of game (Stand, Term, Ass, dubs, trips, quads). If its dubs, ass, term or Stan we'll randomize the number of players (with appropriate numbers) and for teams will randomize the teams within the grouping once more. We'll then randomize all of the settings. Seq/free, no cards/flat/escalating, adjacent/chained/unlimited fog/no fog. Finally we'll randomize a map. It can be any currently playable map.
At the end of the list we'll reach a point where we can't do certain settings (i.e. if there are 7 players left we can't play quads) so those options won't be there.
It is entirely possible and even likely that players will play totally different games in each round. For instance. There could be a 1v1 game, a quads game and a 6 player assassin all in the same round. Its random and so be it.
There is one thing that isn't random. Winning. Win and move onto the next round, lose and you're out.
There is the possibility that some of the games can last for quite a while (see 8 player no cards) so be prepared for that possibility. If a round begins and a player in no longer playing CC they will not be replaced-their slot will merely be removed from the tournament at that point in time.
For the time limit I used no limit, 15, 20,25, 30, 35, or 40 round limits.
If any game reaches the round limit, we'll use BOB's strength. The winner must have a 10% lead over your opponents. If they do not have a 10% lead (in strength) there will be a tiebreaker game between any and all player/teams within 10% of the strength lead.
I'm going to go ahead and see how long we're taking sign ups for:
There were 16 items in your list. Here they are in random order:
1. 13 days
2. 7 days
3. 5 days
4. 9 days
5. 10 days
6. 3 days
7. One hour
8. 12 hours
9. 1 day
10. 11 days
11. 8 days
12. 12 days
13. 4 days
14. 2 days
15. 14 days
16. 6 days

Sign ups will be available for the next 13 days. They will close on November 8. The time on that day will be somewhat random as it'll be in for when I sign on and get to it. It could be midnight on the 8th or noon or 5PM (EST).
Each round will continue to randomly progress so there are no ideas at this point how many rounds or how long it will last.
Lets have fun
