Tournament Testers Wanted!
« on: April 04, 2017, 10:14:12 PM »
By popular demand! Introducing the Weekly Rumble!
 IW's first week long tournament!


But before we can make this a thing we need testers! Challonge link below!

The idea is to hold a week long round robin tournament (which means every player must play a match against every other player by the tournaments end). Those who wish to participate sign up on challonge and join this dedicated forum thread. The sign up period for our test will run until 4/8 at which time 'check-in' will be opened for a day before we start. For simplicity the test tournament should run from Sunday 4/9 – Saturday 4/15, however it may finish faster depending on how long it takes our players to complete their matches.

When we start, the list of registered players will be posted on Challonge and the forum thread. All participants will then have one week to play a Bo3 match with every player on the list. After each match the players will post their results on the forum thread or send them to me via PM and I will keep the challonge page up to date as the results come in.

The tournament winner will be decided by game/match points (how many games you have won during the week) e.g. When the match between Aberion and Lucca ends 2-1 Aberion, then Aberion gets 2 points and Lucca gets 1. Whoever has the most points over all at the end of the week takes first place! Matches left unplayed give you a score of zero so if you want to win it behooves you  to play your matches! The tournament could also end early if all the matches are played before the week ends. Tie breaks can be held if needed to determine 1st, 2nd, and, 3rd place.

I'd like to hold this test tournament next week starting on 4/9 i know it's sudden but i feel the need to test the idea. The test tournament will have no grand prize because this will be a test and there's no way to guarantee that this will work, but i will reward all testers with 3 AA packs for their trouble.

In the future we will also need to test out how streaming will work in this new format. Currently our idea is to have streamers record their matches and send them in. However, we are currently having problems with twitch links so there will be no streamer prizes until we figure this out.

Interesting_Socks first mentioned this idea years ago on the forums and when i interviewed him we chatted about it. Recently, the idea has resurfaced on the discord and forum chats and the community seems quite receptive to the idea. It's time to try it out and polish this idea into a gem for the community.

If you have any suggestions the tourney team and i would love to hear them!

If you would be interested in being a tester please leave a comment letting me know and i will add you to the test.

"Check in" will be open from Sunday 4/9 at 4amIWT until Monday 4/10 at 4amIWT at which point the test tournament will begin!

 ;DAlright folks, GAME ON! ;D

i've started the test tournament.

You all have one week to complete one best of three match against every other player. the tournament will end on Sunday 4/16 at 4amIWT 

This is a Round Robin so by the end you will have played against everyone, therefore the order you play your opponents doesn't matter. It is up to you and your opponent to figure out when you play these matches since the tourney will go on all week long.

After each match has ended please post the scores here. 
i will update Challonge as the results come in.

The winner is whoever has the most points after all the matches are finished.
1 win = 1 point so a tied round (scored 1W-1L-1D) means both players will receive one point for that match.

Any matches left unplayed after Sunday 4/16 at 4amIWT will result in a score of zero.

If you have any questions please post them here or PM me.

And as always,
Good Luck and Have Fun!
