Maybe we could add a minimum of players for any tourney to be sure we have a maximum of feedback and also because those tourney must be quiet hard to win ;)

I support Djenre, I think he has enough to get a tournament started. medals will continue to be a problem for the tournament winners if they are the map mapers, but other then that. go for it

Thank you for your support SirSebstar ;)

NightStrike : about a new special medal, If it's not possible, I'll ask for a general achiev medal. But if CC set a new medal only for MapMakerKillers, I'll be able to organize those tourney not only for beta map, but for any map if any cartogrphar ask for it...

No.

Night Strike,

Thank you for answering that so quick.

I understand Lackattack is not going to make a medal only for one tournament but MMK SERIES are going to be set for beta first (already 6 tournaments, and more with upcoming beta) and also for non beta if any cartographer ask to do a MMK on his map. There are about 160 + maps on the list so it could be a lot of tournaments.
Then the medal wouldn't be only for one tournament.

I just thought it could be nice to see a new CHALLENGE on CONQUER CLUB : defeat a mapmaker. And earn a new medal.

But the MMK series will show up anyway, with or without an [OFFICIAL] and a NEW medal.

UPDATE see next post, cartographer could make a special sig maybe?

DJ, I looked through your sample rules and an example and I think that you've mostly got a good idea... I like that you put in the rules a part about the players making a comment on the map itself, that goes with the spirit of Beta testing- perhaps only for the winners, in order to advance they give some feedback? Dunno, forced feedback isn't great, but I think often a player just doesn't know- or take the time perhaps- to comment on a map to the mapmaker, even though they have opinions that they'd like to share.

Anyway, there is at least one big problem, and that's the winner of the finale. I don't like that there can be 'no winner', and 'another tournament played'... it seems like a bait-and-switch that could leave players angry. If a tourney is created, at the end I think at least one of the players who entered at the beginning should get a medal.

If you have to use a scoring system (and I think you will), so be it, but make sure that a winner is determined somehow. I would suggest scoring the Finale according to who goes out first, second, etc., then add up the points earned to determine a winner. If they kill a mapmaker, have a funny little sig (maybe the mapmaker could make one?) that the player can use- it's a neat gimmick that doesn't require making a whole new medal for a special kind of tourney.

Anyway, hope this helps.

The feedback can be just "optionnal", (but many players won't take the time) or "Higly recommended" but you're right about forced feedback. But it the meantime I want the MMK to help the cartographer community as most of you were happy to see those tournaments become true.

What I have in mind was to make something official where you have the possibility to fight a mapmaker in a finale and earn a medal for it (a new medal, created only for those series, but it's not going to be created, see NightStrike post). Those tournament would be really hard to win and there is a possibility nobody win on the first try. But if a player win that tourney, He become the MapMaker Killer on that map ONCE AND FOR ALL... That could become a nice challenge for players.
And this has been discussed on first posts... The Map Maker can win the tourney, but he can't win a medal for that if he just enters the finale. So when I say "nobody wins", I should say "the MM wins and another tourney will be created to have a second chance to defeat the MM".

Yes, that's a really good idea!!! Instead the medal, we could have this kind of sig. Only for those who defeat a MM on his own Map into MMK series. That could be a nice alternative.
just remember that if we set something special in those series, we will have more players, then more feedback for the cartographer community.

Can you see if it's possible to make something with the cartographer community?

Thank you for your time
and YES, it helps!!!

Do not limit it to beta maps only.

What about?
ROUND 1 - map maker plays round robin vs all,
if he wins at the rate of 50% he goes to finals
where he meets the winner of single elimination bracket?
mislick!
