NOTE BEFORE: THIS IS FOR XBL ONLY!
As some of you will have noticed, there has been talk about doing a region based, team battle tournament! The premise will be on teams consisting of 2-3 people (this may change later) of players, preferably from the same region, playing against other region teams. Each member of their team will acquire points as part of a aggregate total. The point system will be done like thus:
Win 2-0 = 3 points
Win 2-1 = 2 points
Loss 1-2 = 1 point
Loss 0-2 = 0 points
The point system is done in a manner in that a smaller team has just as much of a chance to get as many points off a bigger team than they can off of the smaller team. It also ensures that everyone has to do well on their team, as having just one "star player" will count for naught if everyone else gets creamed.
The length of the tournament will vary on how many players and teams enter. I was thinking that every team would face teams twice a week, once on Wednesday evening and once at the weekend, which would be ample time between games, but not a huge gap as a match would be around every 3-4 days. I would also have it that every team plays all other teams, on two occasions. If 6 teams entered, then 1 team has to play the other 5 teams twice, thus, the tournament would last around 5 weeks long. Unlike the previous tournaments, this would be longer and would run like a League. This means that NO ONE can be disqualified and no one will take an early shower. Everyone involved, will play from the start to the end of the season.
Just to add, anyone entering I would like it if you could give your:
Now for the bad news. I probably wont be starting this until around the new year. I know that seems a ways off, but i will be very, very busy this month and I cant promise I can commit enough time to this if it started in December. Besides, December is a busy month for everyone, and in January, everything will have calmed down a bit. If you guys are desperate for a bit of tournie action next month, I know MoFaT is hosting one on TYM here: http://testyourmight.com/forum/showt...ers#post283915 If some of you aren't TYM members, let me know and I can let MoFaT know on your behalf! I have to admit, letting someone else run a tourney for once will be a nice change on this occasion
Okay guys, if there is anything you are unsure of, ask and I will explain. If there's any suggestions you'd like to make, also, let me know. This wont be starting for some time, and over the next few weeks i'll be looking at a couple generators and programmes so I got something nice to run this on.
I know some of you may be keen to play with your buddies, hence why i've opted for a Region based teams, which should prevent the best players from all over, forming one team. There may be instances where only one guy from one area has signed up, so in that case he may be allotted to a neighbouring region or Time Zone.
