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.

Re: Tournament Ideas: Free to a Good Home

Postby gannable on Wed May 06, 2009 9:38 pm

brief summary -

about 24 doubles teams

4 divisions, 2 conferences
6 team divisions
this is supposed to be just like a sports league

play a schedule of 50-80 games with an emphasis on your own division with very games against the opposite conference.

the winners of the each division get a 1st round bye

the next 4 teams in the conference are seeded accordinng to w/l and then play round
next round its reseeded as the division winners as the top seeds. the one with the best record is of course the top seed at this point.

each playoff round is best of 7

initially i wanted it be world 2.1 unlimited, fog, escalating but not everyone will be interested in that so each team can select their home field. the regular season will be based on home/away games and there will be home field advantage in the playoffs.

it will be an ongoing thing where we keep a record.

I like the idea of having a league and playing games with a goal in sight. i want it be just like a sports league with its own history, rivalries,etic
i could assist you.
send me a private message if interested

6 teams within each conference

Wales Conference

Patrick Division Adams Division

Team 1 Team 2
Team 8 Team 7
Team 9 Team 10
Team 16 Team 15
Team 17 Team 18
Team 24 Team 23


Campbell Conference

Norris Division Symthe Division

Team 3 Team 4
Team 6 Team 5
Team 11 Team 12
Team 14 Team 13
Team 19 Team 20
Team 22 Team 21

There will be a regular season in which each team will accumulate a wins and loss record. After the regular reason there will be playoffs to determine the season’s champion.

The playoffs will consist of 12 teams from each conference with 4 rounds.

During the 1st round each division winner will get a bye.
The 4 remaining top teams from each conference will be seeded from 1 to 4. 1 will play 4 and 2 will play 3. The winners will move on to the second round.

Second round – the division winner with the best record will play the lowest seeded winner from the previous round. The other division winner will play the other winner.

Conference championship – the winners of the two previous rounds will play here to determine the winner of the conference.

Finals Round – the Conference winners will play to determine the season’s League Champion.

Each playoff round will be a best of 7 with the highest seeded winner having home field advantage. 4 of the games will be on their home settings.
Games 1 and 2 will be on the highest team’s settings
Games 3 and 4 on the lowest team’s settings
Game 5 – highest team
Game 6 – lowest team
Game 7 – highest team

Regular season Schedule

1st batch of games – each team will play each of their division opponents twice – 1 game home, the other away.
10 games in total

2nd batch of games – each team will do likewise but against each of the 6 teams against teams in the other division within their own conference.
12 games in total

3rd batch of games - each team will do likewise but against the 6 teams from a division within the other conference.

78 regular season games in total

Each team will select their own type of game – ie, map, forts, cards, fog or no, etc

Once a team joins the league they are in for life until they decide to drop out
This will be an ongoing league with infinite seasons.
We’ll keep track of the wins/losses and playoff results in order to establish a history.

The allocation of teams to divisions will be based on the total number of pts between the two players for each team. The teams will be ranked from 1-24 based on pts. Team 1 will go to the Patrick division, team 2 to the adams division, team 3 to the Norris, team 4 to the symthe division, team 5 to the symthe and so on. See the above chart for further clarification.

Lets play some Tic-Tac-Toe !!!
You can set it up as a 1v1 tourney or do teams. For example:

Team [X]
-joe
-bob
-briggs

Team [O]
-billy
-james
-keebler

Here's how it will work. A coin toss decides who goes first.
If it's your turn, your team picks a square and the setting for the game.
If you win you get the square. If you lose, the other team gets the square.

Sound fun?

You can set it up as a 1v1 tourney or do teams. For example:

Team [X]
-joe
-bob
-briggs

Team [O]
-billy
-james
-keebler

Here's how it will work. A coin toss decides who goes first.
If it's your turn, your team picks a square and the setting for the game.
If you win you get the square. If you lose, the other team gets the square.

Sound fun?


_X_|___|_O_
___|_X_|_O_
_O_|___|_X_


Sounds awesome.

Is this idea still alive?


If no-one has done it yet, I will give it a try..


Here it is

As a tournament idea: How about Tournament of the Forgotten Lands, a simple 32/64 person knockout, playing on all those traditional style maps that you never seem to see on the game finder anymore, E.G. North America, Arctic, Cairns Coral Coast.

A breathe of new life into some older tried and tested maps, i'd organise it myself, but i am going on holiday on the 30th, though maybe when i get back, but until then, the idea is going free for anyone who wants to adopt it?

I'd like to see a big escalating tourney only for players of 2000 or more points. I sometimes get frustrated trying to find escalating games without a noob that wants to suicide for a bonus, etc.
64 players in 8-man groups, a series of 12 or 16 games on standard maps, with the player with the most wins advancing from each group. Something like that. Or the top 2 players from each group into Final Sixteen.

If I'm allowed to do this, I'll do it.

Obviously with some different variations, but if I'm allowed to put in a 2,000 point rule, then I'll run that tournament.

Mods?

from the tournament handbook:

# The maximum point restriction allowed on a tournament is 2000+ points per player or team average.
