Agreed. This makes it easier for us, too, as it means we don't have to worry about trying to pull 32 or 64 players when only 10 tournaments (max) have completed.Dukasaur wrote:I think there should not be anything like a full tournament for the All Star event. The main exhibition game should be either one game or a very small mini-tournament.
I don't agree with the idea of extra ballots - I strongly believe it should be one ballot per person.Dukasaur wrote:The lineup for it should be voted in by a limited college:
- Every member of the Tournament Organisers usergroup gets one ballot.
- Every TD gets an extra ballot.
- Every TO that has posted a tournament in the current season gets an extra ballot.
Only TPA1 and TPA2 have completed. Most, if not all, of the TPA1 top 10 have already left CC. I propose adding the top 10 players on the scoreboard for each ongoing TPA season prior to the current season (so, for TPA5, we'd be adding the top 10 from TPA3 and TPA4) as of the moment balloting begins.Dukasaur wrote:
- Every player who has placed in the Top 10 in completed previous TPA seasons gets a ballot.
If we're going to make it just one game or a mini-tournament, I don't see a need for captains - this isn't a team sport by necessity.Dukasaur wrote:The current TPA season points leaders are made captains. If either of them declines the honour, they are replaced by the next person on the scoreboard.
I can dig that - we might consider doing something in the style of the CC Olympics, too, where players compete to earn points for the tournament(s) they are participating in, with some extra prize to then be awarded to the winner of the highest-scoring tournament, or the player who meets some other criteria determined by the TO - like an additional GA Medal, perhaps.Dukasaur wrote:The rest of the event can be made up with a bunch of not-too-serious events in the style of the old Entertainment Team. These events would be open to anyone who is currently playing in any TPA tourney.
The Home Run Derby and the NHL Skills Competition can be approximated by a bunch of specific-task events. For instance, in the Stacking Challenge, we could set up Sunny No Spoils Speed games on some bonus-heavy maps like King's Court II or Supermax. Whoever builds the biggest stack by the end of the game wins. In the Sweeping Challenge (Similar to the Home Run Derby), we set up some Sunny Escalating games on the traditional 42s. Whoever completes a perfect sweep (kills all 5 opponents in the same turn) in the shortest number of rounds wins. (Tiebreaker to be determined.) In the Passing Competition (similar to the Puck Control Challenge) we set up a Quads game on some map that is really linear, like Route 66 or Alexander's Empire. Whichever team forts a stack from the eastern edge of the map to the western edge of the map in the fewest rounds wins.
I like that - those would only be open to players not participating in any TPA tournament.Dukasaur wrote:For the fans, there could be "predict the winner" events and "write a limerick about the TPA" events, and so on.
I don't know that I like the idea of that being based on low score - it's about good young talent.Dukasaur wrote:Approximating the Junior Skills competion, there could be a mini-tournament that only players below the rank of Private could enter.
I see your point, but a few days is too short - especially given the problems inherent with speed tournaments (availability, time zones, etc). I think it would be OK for this to last a few weeks - the Winter Break has been extended to the entire month of January (it was only 3 weeks last year), so we would probably start it sometime in there, and if it ran into February or even March, no big deal.Dukasaur wrote:But the point is that all of them should be short and sweet, not to make this a big drawn-out affair but one that can be completed in a few days. Preferably everything except the main exhibition game should be a brief Speed Game event that lasts a few hours.
The concept of an All-Star game is not unique to American football - nor even, in fact, to America. All-Star games are part of the seasons of professional leagues in several sports in several Asian countries.DaveH wrote:you are proposing something that is specific to American Football which is not something me and many CC players in other countries know much about.The game ideas are good though, so why not make them just specific to CC?
It does not make sense to me to run the TPA4 All-Star event during TPA5. There are certainly arguments for having it at the end of the season (meaning following the start of the last tournament), but that is the latest I would consider holding it.DaveH wrote:As for the participants I had thought that you could run the All-star event or whatever it is for the previous year, when a larger number of tournaments had completed, so run an TPA4 All-Star event this year etc.
The problem with that is that you would have the same players guaranteed to take part every year, and the event would gradually grow larger and larger as more players became eligible. With a vote on the current pool of players, we can keep the size of the event constant (or control its expansion, if we decide to expand it) and no one is guaranteed a spot.DaveH wrote:Having said that though, TPA2 has only just finished and I think that it must be a bit of an anti-climax for those leading it; just as it seemed when TPA finished.
So, you could always take the leading players (who are still with CC) from all the previous TPA's and have like a Champion-of-Champions event instead or as well.....
That's what the Skills Competitions are for - they will be open to all players participating in a TPA tournament in that season.DaveH wrote:I also like the idea of something for those players who have entered many of the different tournaments without actually ending up on the leader board.
Major tournaments will have 2,000 points for 1st place; Premier, 1,000 points and Standard, 500 points.
For all other places, the number of points earned (P) will be determined by the following formula which includes the number of players/teams (n) and the player's position (x). Points will be rounded down.
For Major tournaments
If n>128: P = 2000n/128x
If n<128 or n=128: 2000/x
For Premier tournaments
If n>64: P = 1000n/64x
If n<64 or n=64: 1000/x
For Standard tournaments
If n>32: P = 500n/32x
If n<32 or n=32: 500/x
If players are tied then they will each receive the average of the total number of points they would have received had they not tied.
