[edit-Lx]
New TO: jmyork82 | New tournament thread: TUG OF WAR: Random I'm trying out a different format that I used to play in other types of games. The game starts out with 32 players in 4 group. Winners will stay in the higher groups while losers will end up in the lower groups and eventually eliminated. The goal is to keep from being eliminated by staying in the higher groups and eventually surviving until the final rounds. I like calling this format TUG OF WAR. There will be 11 rounds. Please read the Game Format to see how all this will be played out.
I am testing this format out on random maps, but I plan to run a series of these games with each tournament being on 1 particular map.
I need 32 players and up to 5 reserves
