Tournament Has been started, you can read the matchmaking rules here
Feel free to use this thread to discuss meta stuff and non-matchmaking tournament stuff.
Hello everyone, I have been reading RPS for at least two years now but I never bothered registering for the forum because I didn't have a reason to. But now I do!
I have been enjoying a bit of Frozen Synapse but its hard to organize PBEM games with strangers, so I thought I should organize a tournament, a structured system with a winner should make everything all the more interesting. I've ran online tournaments before (mostly EVE) but this will be my first asynchronous one.
The plan is simple each round lasts 6 days, from wednesday at midnight to tuesday midnight, giving me one day to sort everything for the next round, Since we can play PBEM it wont even be necessary for each opponent to agree to a time.
It will be an elimination tournament, preferably double elimination maybe even triple depending on the number of players, one fight per round. As for the matches itself well its a bit open, I'm not to sure If we should do just one match type, or randomized matches (like one round its chase, the next extermination).
So here is the plan, people who want to participate post in this Thread with the following information.
your FS ID,
what server you want to play on, the server that wins is the one we will play all matches on that way we wont have to server hop to watch the playbacks. (you can vote on more then one (like for example vote all the UK ones if you just care about it being a UK server))
What match types you want, random or a specific set, or even all except certain types (don't forget there is light and dark versions)
your preference over the kind of tournament (for those who dont know what double elimination is, heres a wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-...ion_tournament).
any other gubbins you want really.
<strike>On the 17th I will count up the votes and the posts and chose the specific servers and settings then we will have one more week for people to join or leave based on what has been decided. On the 24th we will be locked and matches will start on the 29th at midnight.</strike>
Registration is now closed!!
people who have been wronged feel free to post in thread and ill see what i can do.
So that's about all I have to say. I hope you all find this interesting and we will get to have lots of fun making little green silhouettes bleed.
Here are the maps that will be used in the tournament, more specifically tournament maps will be randomly selected from this set.
Feel free to discuss their fairness in the thread. Changes so far are adding a shotgun to each side of Extermination 1
