blake's INSANITY [Abandoned]

Postby blakebowling on Wed Sep 26, 2012 9:54 am

I'll be taking 64 players for this tournament (I could be convinced to take more, but I plan to start when it gets to 64).

Premium is not required for this tournament, but it may give you an advantage.
Free members are required to dedicate a game slot to this tournament. Not joining your game on time disqualifies you from that round.

The goal of the tournament is simple: Win a game on the most maps (in 16 weeks).

Random Games will be created weekly at least (I plan to create around 100 at a time).

Settings:
Players: 4 (30%) / 6 (35%) / 8 (35%)
Map: Random
Automatic
Standard
Sequential (50%) / Freestyle (50%)
Escalating (35%) / Flat Rate (35%) / Nuclear (15%) / No Spoils (15%)
Chained (50%) / Adjacent (10%) / Unlimited (40%)
Fog (50%) / No Fog (50%)
Trench (20%) - No Trench (80%)
Round Limit - 50 Rounds

Each week will also feature one map. Each player will be randomly assigned to a game on that map (for those you will receive invites). The settings distribution will be the same as above, with the exception of map and number of players (if necessary).

Please post your first win on each map in this thread when you get it (so I can keep the standings updated). This will prevent me having to go through all of the games later.

One Year of Premium will be given to the winner.

I like the premise, but with the maps being random, there is a good chance that this could take over a year (which is the designated time frame to try to finish tournaments in. Is there any way you could send more than one designated map per week?

Here's the issue, people will have a hard time getting over 200 maps in a year when it's random and they for sure only have a shot at a new one once a week. That's a 4 year tournament, if someone wins all designated games. Anyway, the tournament looks fine other than the time frame.

If I'm understanding this right, I think this might be a little overambitious. This sounds like it'll take a few years to complete.

I just realized the amount of time it would take while reading over it myself. So I've changed it to the most maps in 10 weeks (possibly 16, I'm not absolutely sure).
I'm also considering increasing the number of dedicated games per week, but increasing it to more than two would essentially rule out freemiums.

10 and 16 are both fine. Just decide now and you can go with either of those. The tournament is in the database now.

One thing to remember, tournament games automatically get deleted after 2 weeks.





I'm in please. :D

It sounds interesting, I'm in, but I may have to miss a few invites. Hopefully not.
