I voted for option 2, because of one reason. I don't like the thought of having 36 games all at once.

I went for the second option also, it would be an overkill to give so high game load to TPA players who already probably have more games active than they would normally without TPA.

option 2 for the same reason I guess, but in option 2 isn't it going to take forever? Playing max 2 games at a time for a total of like 100 games? depending on how many maps are used
We're talking like a 2 year long tournament, would cause lots of problems for the TPA

Second option.

Assuming 8 maps in a group, yields 15-136 games per group to get a finalist.
(15 = 3 straight wins by a single player on each of 5 maps... enough to ensure them a majority)
(136= every map going to maximum (7 players with 2 wins, 8th with 3=17*8), all maps run to determine a winner.)

I'd expect it to take ~75 games to decide a group, under average circumstances. With map specialists or one player significantly outranking the group, it might drop to 50 to clear a group.

It's going to take a while.

Better that you put up the poll and had comments than to post your tournament and have no one show up.

As far as the TPA goes, I'm pretty sure bart made it clear that the tournaments need to end on or near the end of May so that it doesn't take months to wrap up the final scores. As for game load, with new TPA tournaments every week, it makes it very hard for regular participants to suddenly add 36 games to their load.

Well I woke up in bad mood
but if you saw my next post
you will see that I chilled out
and was grateful for feedback.

p.s. I would love if you would answer
some of my pm-s,
at least now and then ;)
