No, it says 2000+ because you can have a 2000- tournament. You CAN have a 2500- tournament, but not a 2500+ tournament. The + is there to indicate that the tournament is open for anyone over that amount of points. If you wrote it without the +, people may think you have to have that exact number of points to be able to join the tournament.

I'm surprised that we don't have something like the English Premier League and the leagues below it. We would probably need about 100 players in total. they would then be split into 3 groups. the top 1/3, middle 1/3, and bottom third, based on their conquer club rankings. They would play their alloted games in each group. I think the premier league plays each team once and half of them twice. so about 50 games each team in this league. Each season the bottom 3 teams from the top 2 groups get relegated down and the top teams from the lower divisions move up.
I would love have this kind of league in place and would run it myself if I had the time. So if anyone wants to do something like this, then by all means please do so. I can try and help out in anyway that I can.

Hey guys.
I was wondering if theres ever been a 'Relived Spanish Civil War' tourney, I haven't quite gone into detail as of yet, thought I'd find out if it has been done before screwing around my brain to map it out.
Cheers!

Has there ever been a tourney before where you had to win a singles game at each different number of players (ie 8 player, 7 player....etc)?

I think if you had 24 you could do it.

Three 8 player games
Three 7 player games (winners from the last round can play in the 7 player game or play in a separate 3 player game)
Four 6 player games
Four 5 player games (winners from last round could play in a 4 or 2 player game if they chose and agree)
Six 4 player games
Eight 3 player games
Twelve 2 player games

After the cycle finishes, simply repeat until you get a player who has won at each level.

If a player wins a 8 player or 6 player game they could maybe choose another player to take their place as a strategic move or if they need to player a different level.
We dont know what happens in the after, but we know its different than what happened in the before.

No there wasn't, as far I know.(And I know a lot :D )

There aren't so many history based tournaments.

Most are bracket type.

i would love to see a tournament based on "the hunger games"...read the books, loved them, saw the movie, and loved it too. I would make one on my own but im not sure how to put the concept into the gameplay. If anyone does after reading this, please make sure all games are escalating so I can join, I hate flat rate and no spoils :D
