Ok guys, here it is: the official Weekly Tournament of the Forums! This tournament is for those of us that typically can’t join regular tournaments, online, offline, or otherwise. So here’s the way it’ll work:
There are only 16 slots…I’m going to try to keep it small and see how it handles with managing it…consider this tournament a trial run.
Each round will last a full week, with the first week starting next Friday, Sept 2 at 12:00am CST. Each participant will be responsible for finding and arranging a match with their opponent on the bracket, and play a first to 3 win set sometime during that week. You will need to record the match and send the results to me via a private message, and I will then post the results to this thread. If an arrangement with the opponent cannot be made within the week, both players will forfeit the match. When the week is over Thursday at 11:59 pm the next round will begin. The winner of a match will be locked into his character choice, and a player can only change characters to counterpick after a lost match. Matches need to be played in a private lobby, and in the case of lag both players need to agree that a delay is fine between them, and if a player disconnects from the lobby they will be awarded a loss.
Keep in mind I’m new to this, so forgive any bumps in the road, and any help I can get from those in the community that have done tournaments before will be appreciated.
…for this one the prize will just be the admiration of other forum members. It things go over well, maybe we can have prizes in later tournaments? But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
I’m in, ought to be fun. We could also have the final few matches streamed and commentated. I’m sure myself and another KI patron (perhaps my boys @DulXboxOne or @PVXenoraptor or the ever sexy @Marbledecker) would be more than happy to find the time. Fair warning, If we do end up streaming with commentary the stream would need to be relatively low quality and for the love of Gargos NO MORE THAN 2 COMMENTATORS. I’m applying what I have learned from the last Random character tournament.
