Personally, I don't think there are going to be a lot of organizers interested in giving preferential treatment to the players with higher scores and let them get away with playing fewer games in the tournament. The usual mode of operation in tournaments is that everyone plays on the same field, and you have to do just as much work as the other guy to win the tournament.

If anything the higher ranks should play more games to handicap them so it's harder

My Dark Tower tournament that is currently taking entrants has elements of this idea: (1) There are singles, doubles, tripples and quad games on the way to final; (2) there is a round where one player gets a bye, but can still win points if their teammates win.

However, none of it is based on rank but instead will be self/team selecting (or random if they can't decide).

Again, not exactly what you were talking about, but I figured I'd mention it, if not because it's something like what your talking about, then just for a plug.

Here's a link to the tournament: http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=55283

Also worth mentioning that in the 1v1 Singles League, there is a 3000+ division where the high ranks play each other, and then only if they want to, get put into the mix in the playoff (i.e., they don't get to compete to win the league, but can still participate against each other).
My ever constant two last games seem to have no end in sight!

This is just a general idea that could be implemented with all tournaments. I for one, am not very good at 1v1s, so I have been unwilling to join many tournaments knowing that I would lose in the final round if I made it that far. I also think that there are many other people like me playing on this site.

Basically, my idea is this: have the final round be more than a one on one duel, make it be a 3+ person battle.

I am considering a 3 in a row tournament, where you have to win 3 1v1s in a row to advance, and wanted ideas on tie-breakers if it goes on for a long time.

Perhaps after a certain game limit, [for instance 20], who won the most out of that 20 would advance?

Another option more or less in line with 3 in a row is: 3 of last 3; 4 of last 5; 5 of last 7; 6 of last 9; 7 of last 11; 8 of last 13; etc. So 3+1+1+1.... to win out of 3+2+2+2....
Theoretically it could still go on forever, but that is not very likely :ugeek:

I have 2 fully created tournaments that I would like to be seen ran in CC but I don't have time nor wish to do it myself right now so whoever wants can pick them up. I've also created excel sheets for them so just message me and I'll send them over if you wish. Also, if you wish to change something then go ahead. They are both quite simple tournaments, need updating once or twice a week, maximum 30 minutes a week.

Edit. Removed one.

Re: Tournament Ideas: Free to a Good Home

I would like to run a tournament as I participate in many and yet have never organised one myself.

What I would like to know is if the following format is workable when starting games.

The idea is for a blind date tournament, maps and settings are not an issue just how people join the games.

Would it be possible for me to have 32 players 1v1 =16 games.

All games would need to be auto join games with the list of 16 games going out to all the players.

Each player joins one game - being an auto join game they wouldn't know who they were playing against (nor would I) - hence the blind date bit :)

If the game is full, then the players choose another one of the 16 games till they find one with a space.

The tournament would be blind date all the way to the semi finals.

Is this auto game blind date suggestion workable/ allowed.

Thanks
Wrex

wrex I think its certainly doable. As for allowed, it fits within the requirements so that's fine.

Just be sure your players are clicking on auto join and not just "shopping"-it'll have to be honor system but that would be my concern.

Thanks for the reply.

Because people could search the game numbers from the auto join link and therefore find a way of viewing who had joined a certain game, I decided what I wanted to attain here was not achievable.

I will however play my part one day and get a tournament organised.
Perhaps for the occasion of my 3000th game - or my 1000th win.

Cheers

Wrexham, something you could do instead would be to randomly select opponents (names in a hat, dice rolls, whatever). Not quite the same thing, but sort of in a general sense.
