    If you have a better system than my group-direct elimination, go wild.


    It's SC, should be fine. I hope. Maybe. But you are on Euro times, an extra man won't hurt.

    Well, we can try. If lag is unbearable happens. It's not like you pay for the game! Give it a try, it's free!

    I don't think I'll be able to join since I can barely even get my Dom4 turns on time. Maybe once classes are over for me.

    Nothing wrong with that part, but that's hardly a complete ruleset you put out.

    For the round robin, how do you deal with points draws? Say, everyone in a group of 4 wins twice and loses twice. Who advances? Will just the winner of each squad advance or top 2 (Imo there's little point to groups if only one advances, just do single elim all the way then)? Will the resulting single elimination matches be bo1, 3, 5, or does it vary (more games for finals)? Also maps.


    Then everything else - what do you do if some people fail to play their games. If they're not explicitly dropping out but just taking a long time to arrange a time for it. Especially in a group stage it's problematic if somebody plays out some of their games but not all, then drops out, etc. I don't think there's any optimal solution to make people play their games inside a resonable timeframe, but one option could be to make the group stages take place at a given time - group A plays all their games on thursday 19 GMT, B on sunday etc., so if you have a group of 4, then people need to just arrange for one date instead of 3. And when there's more people on at the same time it's just more fun, more of a tourney feel than just a random game.

    Rule thoughts:

    - Have everyone specify their Race ahead of time, so we know what to prepare for.
    - Make it one map for all games. Find some competitive map where history shows races are balanced. Reason: We're all inexperienced and it would be good if map-specific cheese can be minimized as much as possible.
    - Have all replays posted for everyone to see and have someone write a quick post-game report on what happened. Reason: Again, mostly to cut down on cheese and equalize the skill gap. I'm sure someone here could spend a few hours mastering cannon rushing or something and win 90% of matches easily, so having some advance notice of what builds people are using is a good safegaurd and should keep things interesting.

    What's the point if no one can handle economy? Just play Myth 2 for pure micro.

    Ok, on another thought, I'll join. The lag shouldn't be that bad as long as I'm playing against fellow azns.

    Now we just need a proper Korean player to run away with all the prize money. Maybe Black Cat will rise from her grave.

    Following Johannes' suggestions, methinks for the first stage we'll go round-robin with the two winners of each group going into direct elimination brackets: if we get draws we can do a single direct elimination match to choose who proceeds.

    I was toying with the idea of leaving to the single players the maps, but after some reading it's mightily unwise. After doing some reading and testing, I'd suggest to keep our choice between:

    +Fighting Spirit
    +Luna
    +Python
    +Destination

    Additional suggestions and critiques are welcome

    I will set up private PM convos for each team and a Google doc for team and timing. I still have to think what to do about the inevitable dropping players.

    If you need some simmetry for the tournament to go smoothly I drop out of the tournament and you can put Eadee in Team Euros 3, Dayyalu. So you'd have 4 teams of 4 people each. I still have to learn the game + busy period in general for me.
