I know for myself I was bogged down by real life and had to start dropping and not joining TPA events. I wish I could have played in all of them and that was my original goal but it was impossible for myself.

Maybe a suggestion for season three. Just a thought and by no means should the TPA be catered for myself.

It was and is a great idea and has been executed wonderfully.


Edit--after reading the new scoring this is a mute idea.


that's a very good suggestion. i think there is going to be quite a lot of overlap from season to season and shortening the year would help to alleviate that i think. plus it would be nice to have a breather in between seasons or skip a week here and there just to break it up.

The next season isn't starting until August, so there's going to be a 3 month break.

Hopefully we've solved this issue by 1) taking a 3 month break between seasons and 2) changing up the scoring system so players aren't penalized for not getting into all the events. I like 52 weeks as I know there are players who look every monday for a tournament and throwing in an off week or two throws that off a little. WIth the ability to not join all of the events it should keep that pressure off of players.

The scoring system will allow breaks, especially if you do well in the first major :)

I like the suggested changes. (I'm still relatively new on CC, so I haven't had any impact on the TPA until now, but I hope to be on the scoreboard and perhaps even included in the roster of TOs next season.)

One thing I would suggest is renaming the "Premium" events in the Major/Premium/Standard division. For that matter, I would even rename Standard, the reason being simply one of avoiding ambiguity. Because Premium and Standard are already terms that have specific meanings on CC, they shouldn't be used to designate something else. I realize that any confusion can easily be cleared up, but the best option is always to eliminate even the possibility of confusion.

I thought the name for the middle one was already "Premier", not "Premium" anyway.

Hank, the other issue that you're going to have to deal with is that there is a requirement this year that any TO may not have had an abandoned tournament during the previous year. I know you had a few over the winter. Now that doesn't rule you out as someone could be put on the schedule for more than a year from now but its something that you'll have to work on.

But no, there are still spots available.

And NS is right, Major/Premier/Standard are the three types. Should we change the name of standard?

How about Regular or Basic?
Important Tournament Notice

The data for ALL of my tournaments has potentially been lost. I am working to recover it but as I am away on business all of this week, there will be some delay. Sincere apologies.

Hank, I'm always happy to have new TPA TOs involved. one of the issues in Year 1 that bothered me was TOs who didn't/couldn't finish their tournaments. To that end we've put in a rule for year two that nobody can host who has an abandoned within the past year (from the time their TPA event begins). So yes, if you improve your reputation and move forward completing the tournaments that you begin I'll be happy to get you onto the schedule. I am probably going to have some of the later dates still open for a bit to allow for new TOs who show up around CC. Keep up with everything, run good tournaments and we'll look at a basic tournament for you once you've got a clear year of history. Fair enough?

I like Basic, anyone else have thoughts.

That would make us Standard/Premier/Basic for the levels.

You mean: Major/Premier/Basic.

Personally I like Regular better. Many of the standard/basic tournaments were hardly basic....

Major/Premier/Minor

although i like Regular i think it might cause confusion to say something is a Regular tournament. the same goes for Basic.
