This tournament consist of 6 teams (gangs) of 6 players. Entries will consist of one person listing their other 5 gang members. Minimum team points combine 10,000. May sign up as single and when 6 random singles have accumulated then they will be put on a team together, if a slot is still available at the time, provided their combined points total at time of selection is 10,000 minimum.
There are 6 major gangs across the United States that are broken up into 6 basic regions. USA GREAT LAKES, USA ROCKIES, USA SOUTHEAST, USA SOUTHWEST, USA WEST AND USA NEW ENGLAND. These will be the six maps that are played on and each team will be randomly assigned a region (map) as their "Home Turf". Your home turf WILL NOT change throughout the entire tournament.
Now of course every gang wants to expand their ground and takeover another gangs turf so a series of 'rumbles' will take place to eliminate the weakest gangs (and gang members) until only one player remains to rule his gang over the whole country. Again, only one player will win this tournament, not a team.
show: Rumble 1
Rumble #1: Every gang member will be
randomly sent to an opposing gangs home turf with one member staying at their home turf to defend. Every gang will be represented at every map. Six players per map. Play order will also be randomly selected as it will be for every game of the tournament. Game play for each rumble will be standard, auto, chained, escalating, sunny, 20 round limit. (dont know bout you but a 20 min. rumble sounds damn long enough!) Every rumble (round) will consist of (3) three games. Points will be awarded to each gang member depending on what order they get their butt kicked. First one out gets 1 point. Second one out gets 2. Third gets 3 and so on. Last man standing gets 6 points. Playing three games helps you recover from a 'bad spell' on the dice or crummy placement. At the end of the rumble each members points will be totaled for all three games and each gang's points will be totaled, which is each members total combined. e.g. Dirk played his 3 games on the New England map and finished 2nd, 5th and 6th. Thats 5pts plus 2pts plus 1pt for a total of 8 pts. His fellow gang member Nash finished 1st, 3rd and 3rd on his three games in the Rockies for a total of 14 pts. and so on. When all 6 of the gangs members points were totaled it came to 62pts. The total score for the six gangs were West 62, N. Eng. 55, G. Lakes 66, Rockies 61, S.E. 58, S.W. 60. At this point, the gang with the least total (in this example its N. England) will be eliminated, all 6 members gone, and the remaining 5 gangs will move on. However, the gang member within each remaining gang with the least total will also be eliminated leaving 5 members to move on. The map represented by the losing gang will no longer be played on during the tournament. It is now territory up for grabs. In case of a tie on team totals for the lowest score after any rumble, the score for the worst player (their three game total) on the affected teams will be withheld from the total and the new lowest team total is eliminated. If needed, withhold next lowest and so on. In case of a tie within a gang for lowest member, withhold lowest score. If all three placements are the same then a tiebreaker will be played on home turf with same game settings. NO POINTS WILL BE ADDED TO SCORE FOR TIEBREAKER GAMES. WINNER TAKES ALL.
show: Rumble 2
At this point every team and every members points totals reset to 0.
Rumble #2: All members are again randomly sent to an opposing gangs turf with one staying behind to defend. It is possible you could play on the same map as the first rumble and/or with some of the same players. You will again play 3 games and receive points in the same manner. Eliminations will be determined by the same criteria as before.
show: Rumble 3
All points reset to 0.
Rumble #3: Again members and maps are randomly drawn with the remaining 4 players and 4 gangs however the bottom 2 gangs will be eliminated and the bottom 2 members of the remaining gangs will be snuffed as well.
show: Rumble 4
All points reset to 0.
Rumble #4: Now there are 2 players from 2 gangs represented. At this point the members get to work together in their last ditch effort to be the supreme gang in a doubles match on USA map for best 2 out of 3 games. Seeing as how it's most likely a no-holds-barred by now the game settings will be doubles, auto, unlimited, sunny, esc for 20 rounds!!!
show: Final Showdown
The last two members of the winning gang will then face each other in a best 3 out of 5 on USAapocolypse auto, unlimited, sunny with a chance of
nukes for 50 rounds to offer plenty of time for a victor to emerge from the rubble.
This is my first attempt at running a tournament so bare with me as it progresses but I assure you I will be as thrifty as possible with keeping it moving along. Thank you!
