ok so lets make it simple
entry fee of 1 million credits per team
no limit on ship captains. (5 science in 5 escorts......so be it)
no limit on skills or load outs.
All skills are useable, and not considered cheating or exploiting or anything. So no whining over TSS3 or APB or RSP or even the lame as hell gravity well bug.
All is good in my hood !
FvK - FvF - KvK
premade teams vs premade teams
Please have one person with fraps to really show a good matches later, there is also a live streaming website that I can not recall at this time for others to watch the action if they wish but a fraps vid would be cool enough. not a must but it will really show others what a good match can look like.
can not really set up a bracket system yet without number of teams but we will do a double elimination http://bbh.marpirc.net/k5/bracket.gif
best 2 out of 3 matches, small breaks in between matches for bio and drinks but not so long that people get to go change out builds completely....however; if a person is smart they will bring multiple B/O with differnt load outs to change on the fly inbetween matches or even in the current match.
using this bracket system, if more than 16 teams show up then we will adjust as needed. so you know the winner of the losers bracket will have to give the winners of the winners bracket 2 strikes to win it all.
team seeding will be random.
if a team needs a ventrilo server to use we will offer ours to a premade team. All team leads please contact or post to reserve
WHEN - Saturday May 29th start time 12 noon PST (sorry to move it but family trip conflicts)
Where - it would be recommended all teams meet at the nuetral bar to set up private matches easily that way.
WHY - prize money will go to the top team. that is right no 2nd place no 3rd place.....this is the Super Bowl of PVP. 1 shall stand and 1 shall fall....there can be only 1.........Who DA" MAN !....im out of phrases ATM
I can speak for DOB as we will field at least 1 team with a great chance at 2 teams. possibly 3 teams.
FYI - no we will not be taking any amount of the entry fees.
"Bench" allowed in case someone goes offline or otherwise has to leave the tournament?
Arbitration rules for issues like indefinite delay of game (cloak and hide 60km out in deep space forever, refusing to respawn)?
Seeding within brackets... random?
Who will be running the brackets? If there's only one person and he/she is also playing, it can cause backlogs in matches.
Have you considered using tournament software to automate the brackets? http://tiopro.com/ is a decent free one.
Edit: Better URL for tio, better example of an issue requiring arbitration
1- no bench, we can allow for some time inbetween games (something like 5 minutes, as stated for bio and ect..) but static teams. so if a team has a member that drops making the team a 4 man team then the private matches will be set up with a dummy player that sits in the game and does nothing the whole match essentially making the game a 4v5 match. Not a nice thing to happen but it's fair for everyone, otherwise i could see a team having someone drop when faced with a defeat.
So if you teammates drops....ohh well. Just as they drop and leave they can rejoin and be fine as well. this is another reason for meeting at the nuetral bar and setting up the private match there so that if they decide to do a regular que, you do not get a random PUG that joins.
2 - if a team cloaks and stays out for (X) amount of time......really I doubt this would happen as the people that are liekly to jon this type of game format would not be that douchie. Then it is easy to say something like after a set amount of time then they would forfiet their game, not the match just the game. So for instance
team 1 is klingons and they are down 12-0 and they decide to grief by staying cloaked and be jerks about it then after a good amount of time, they will forfiet that match. giving them a 0-1 of the best out of 3 match play. To fix that issue in the touney channel that team will be called out to either uncloak, engage enemy, ect....or they will give up the game. it will be openly communicated to all involved....another reason why a fraps vid of each match would be great to have. Either way great question of hopefully an event that would not occur.
3 - seeding will be random by each team leader using the /random command in the game at the day of the event. that way there is no question over who is where. /random the highest to lowest rolls will be the seeding so potentially a DOB v DOB fight could happen first round to make it fair for all.
4 - I will be running the matches and yes I understand it can cause some delay but not much.
5 - I will look into that site to see how usefull it is
thanks and other questions please bring them up now.
Just as they drop and leave they can rejoin and be fine as well.
What about that bug where people crash out and rejoin the game as friendly to both sides? Is there way to get them back on the proper team, or do they have to sit out the rest of the match? Presumably you aren't going to let them float around and be an invincible healer.
