Hi, i took part in last two tournaments and noticed a couple of things

- people having some sort of last minute problem, and because of it they cant play
- not all people can take part in tournament because of (work/school/family etc)
- people with that last minute problem i mentioned earlier force changes to organization of tournament

so to try and solve this i was thinking about something like this:

- make tournament last 2 weeks near the end of the month, and first 2 weeks to sing in (maybe than we would see ppl like bembe, mikademus, grend, malus, olly etc. taking part ;] )

- instead of groups i think that Double Elimination tournament format is better here look :


why i think its better ? because if someone will sign in, and be unfourtunate not to find the time during this 2 weeks period you can DQ him and it doesnt affect tournament order... also everybody got a second chance so if two good players meet very early they still can meet in final!

- ruleset would be voted like it is now 3k/5k/9k/DOST5/FO

- games could be like in last tourney 3 fights one each with one race and final endurance

- it wouldnt affect hall of fame ;p as it have 1st 2nd and 3rd place



ok thats all i think i forgot something else, maybe ill add it later
so give me your toughts what do you think about this?

we have used this system before, the reason we left it was that some players would suddenly qualify for semi finals with no fights and only play 3 games in a whole tournament.

If we knew players would join and stay it would be perfect but the groups are necessary so that the tournament can handle a few drop outs

but did you used it with 2 weeks time period for fights ? or a single day like it is now ? i think if its 2 weeks most of the players will have the time to get fights done, and problem you described happens in group format system also, happened yesterday actually
