This 32-player (or 16-player if interest is low) tournament will pit gunfighters against each other in a series of 1-on-1 duels. Do you have what it takes to survive and become the lone remaining gunslinger?
Players in this tournament will move through a randomly-seeded, 1v1, single-elimination bracket by winning their gun fights. To win a gun fight takes both speed and accuracy. Each round, players will play 2 games - one to determine each player's draw speed and shot accuracy. (View "Gun Fight Rules" for a detailed explanation on determining winners.)

A player must win their game in order to get a shot off at their opponent. The rounds it takes to win will determine both the speed of their draw and the accuracy of their shot. The quicker the draw, the less accurate the shot. If a player does not win their game, then they do not take a shot during the fight. The following chart will determine speed and accuracy.

WIN IN x ROUNDS SPEED ACCURACY
4 or less 0.25 sec 75% 5 to 7 0.50 sec 80% 8 to 10 0.75 sec 85% 11 or more 1.00 sec 90% Speed is obviously important, but accuracy is also important. Whoever draws their gun the fastest will have the first opportunity to shoot. Random.org will then be utilized in conjunction with the player's draw speed and accuracy rating to determine whether or not their shot hits their opponent. (Random.org will generate a number between 1 and 100. If the number falls at or below the player's accuracy rating, it is counted as a hit. Otherwise, it is considered a miss.) Provided they miss, the same process will be used on the slower player to determine their shot success. Simply put, the player that draws their gun and shoots their opponent the quickest wins the duel. If there is a tie after the initial duel (both players missed or both players drew at the same speed and successfully shot the other), a single additional game will be played to see who can get another shot off the quickest. The winner of that game will win the duel. A study of 1,205 completed games with this map and settings was used to determine the speed/accuracy split for winning in X number of rounds.
show: Example Duel 1
Player A wins their draw game in 6 rounds (0.50-second draw with 80% accuracy).
Player B wins their draw game in 10 rounds (0.75-second draw with 85% accuracy). Player A shoots first and hits Player B (Random.org Number: 11). Player A wins the duel.
show: Example Duel 2
Player A loses their draw game (no shot).
Player B wins their draw game in 14 rounds (1.00-second draw with 90% accuracy). Player B shoots first and hits Player A (Random.org Number: 70). Player B wins the duel.
show: Example Duel 3
Player A wins their draw game in 10 rounds (0.75-second draw with 85% accuracy).
Player B loses their draw game (no shot). Player A shoots first and misses Player B (Random.org Number: 98). Player B does not get a shot off. Player B gets a second shot off and hits Player A (wins the tiebreaker game). Player B wins the duel.
Players will have 2 invites to join their games. After 2 invites, they will be eliminated. No reserves will be used. I reserve the right to change any part of this tournament at any time and to allow exceptions to these terms as I deem appropriate.
