first round: round robin - top 2 records in each bracket advance. in cases of a tie by number of wins - a game won in fewer rounds trumps. i.e. if mimic and somar96 and surferninja each have one win, but somar won in 10 rounds, surfer in 12 and mimic in 19, then Somar's win is the best win, and he advances. There are no ties. Ties count as losses.

second round of 16 players: another 4 pools of 4 round robin style. top 2 from each pool advance.

final 8 use a direct elmination format. composite record from both first two rounds is used to seed the final 8 into the direct elimination.

thoughts?


Amazing RD - you are a pinball wizard!

A few things:

1) Whatyousay makes three for the adjudication committee (= me, you, What) => let's get this party started!

2) I like what you said about lower ranked players (at the time of the start of the tourney?) having the option to start games/play blue

3) I also like the idea of a second round round robin, but let's see what folks are up for when we get there

4) About ties for top two rankings in each pool after the round robin. Here's what I wrote in the original post - let's stick with that, eh?

If there is a tie for one or both of the top two places in the group, results against each other will be considered, and then number of rounds it took you to WIN your games. The player with the lowest total rounds to win the games they won = the higher ranking. Make sense?


5) Would you be so kind as to start a new thread with the list of the 8 pools at the beginning? Folks can use that thread to post game links and game results, and you can update the first post accordingly? Or am I crazy? Or what?

nope you got it alright. if you dont want to do a second round of pools, then we have a direct elim of 16. i thought that favors the top seeds a little more than the second round of pools. I'll set the thread and leave rounds 2+ open for later determination. More to come soon.

McM - What - you guys have HQ space for a private chat moderators game? Sadly I can only set up the trial maps right now. Don't really intend to play the game, just a method for discussions that doesnt fill the forum thread.

Vidar - VonB - all others not already in the FWC - registration is now closed. Should some players no-show their games we'll take additional players in first-come-first-served fashion. Otherwise the tourney is full and already begun

sorry

Since this tournament is organized in the likeness and spirit of the World Cup, I suggest that it be made a rule that every game should be played in the appropriate atmosphere. Like so:
