The next tournament!
« on: January 11, 2012, 01:28:31 AM »
Hello everyone.

We are in the planning stage for a 3v3 tournament!

Please stay tuned for more information. This will likely be a Feb or March start.

There will be rules in place to prevent stacked teams.

Yes this is correct. We will need 24 people total for a solid 3 rounds of epic games. Kyp and I will keep everyone posted. :)

3v3 ? with team constraint ? I have a bad feeling about it... People need to be 6 at the same moment, to have 10h free. And, I dont see some of our top players will take the risk to loose a game (A name starting with a "t" and ending with a "t", for instance...)

What about something else ? OCC teamer ? later era duel ? Or CTON tourney maybe ?

Nice "hint" there Kiffe, well the only reason we are having this put into place is beacause we dont need an OP dream team like Uni, Dj, n R-done on the same team, just like with yourself, Fredodo n Merle. Those teams are unbeatable stacked together like that.  :-\

And How exactly could there be a CTON tourney?

Yes I think using our week-per-round format and rules that prevent team stacking that this can work no problem at all.

And for SK cton tournaments are easy.  What you do is have a few first round 6 player ctons, the top 2 or 3 players from each first round cton advance to the second round cton, and finally the final cton which decides the winner, 2nd place, 3rd place etc.  We did this lots in our Civ4 CCC's, it is a proven format.  The number of rounds of course depend on how many players you have to start and how many round one ctons are filled up.

Well the format we have found that works so far for Civ5 tournaments is to give players/teams a week to finish a game for each round, so far this has worked fine, and people can work around their schedules.

pretty ridic when talking about the guy who took part in 2 tourneys with equal same weired setting ideas and dont think I ever declined games (apart like 2-3 guys who are on dnp and even played US)

as long as the activty is still slim in league I d sugest another duel tourney.
And well obviously not anc again ..

I dont see at all why people prefer the least fun era so much - just cause its hard?? to learn new ones?

The civ5 looks pretty active to me Tommy, averaging over 15 games per day in the past week.

But we will see what happens after we open signup.

He would like play in the next tournament. I think it's time for the next dueal or 2v2 tournament. Preferably with a rule up to one game with given civ during tournament. Maybe also with to 2 wins rule. However the idea of ​​3v3 seems to be too complicated organizationally.

I would play in a 2v2 Tournament and it would be fun.  Logistically it would make the most sense.  Plus some people can't even play 3v3 with their computers.  Though if you go ahead with the 3v3 tourny good luck!!

Ok Kyp seems to be taking a vacation, and that is ok.  I'm certainly willing to run a tournament.  I think we can pull off a 3v3 still.  So let me know your preferred map/game settings.  And any comments on team rules is welcome as well.  I'm thinking each team can have 1 member in the top 5, one member from 6-11, and one from below that in the standings.

If we find a consensus fast, I will put a tournament up this weekend for registrations, and start the first round next Friday.
