Tournament: Determining the Best! GAME 7 FINALISTS POSTED

Postby QueenOfHearts » 05 Mar 2010, 02:37

Available to anyone who thinks they are good at diplomacy. NOTE: you don't have to be ranked a certain rank to participate. You just have to be good.

Game Settings
48/24/24
classic
anonymous (Let's keep it like that!)
random
speed deadlines

SCORING
There will be Detour98f scoring. (I'll need to figure out how that works)

There isn't going to be a preferential option for the higher ranked players, I'm going to do the classic name out of the hat trick, and pick 7 for each game.

There is going to be a maximum of either 21, 28 or 35 players. That way, we can have all the games going at once for each round. The length of the tournament will depend on how many players we get.

If there are 21 players, the 3 players with the draw/most SC. In the case of a solo, the next highest amount of SC will move on.

If 28 players, 4 move on. If there are only 2 players left, and everyone else is dead, the last surviving player moves on.

For 35 players 5 move on, but if only 2 surviving countries, the last 3 countries to die move on as well.

So you have a 21 person tournament.

Round 1
R1G1: 3 players move on.
R1G2: 3 players move on.
R1G3: 3 players move on.

Well you may say that how can we have 2 games with only 9 people? To determine players 10-14, I will take the top 5 players in Detour98f from the previous round and use them. I will modify this point depending on how many people we get.

Round 2
R2G1: 3 players move on
R2G2: 3 players move on

Again, for the final round, we have only 6. I will take the highest Detour98f scoring person from round 2, and put him in the last spot.

For the final round, we have no one moving on. It all comes down to who has the most points. They will be crowned Best of Best Tournament # 1 Winner! If I hold another one of these after this one is finished, the previous winner will be obliged to participate.

Since all games will be anonymous, only premium members allowed. Please play each game as if the tournament is starting fresh, so as not to let the rankings affect your play.

Stick me in for this please.

Not only because I understand the Detour98f scoring system, but I also have spreadsheet that you can use to work out the scores under this system.

Did I mention that I waor as an accountant for a living?

Awesome! That's great. So you can teach me the Detour98f system? And no, you didn't say you were an accountant. ;)

My rank right now is not very high, but I could have been somewhere arouned 80 by now, its just that at the last 6 months I had to surrender all my games twice.
I guess that if I give this tournament more time then I give to games usually, then I can even possibly go to the final.
P.S. - Count me in! :P
Raise my karma and I'll maybe raise yours!!!

Please take my name off from the top. While I'm pleased that another tourney has started, I'm against the way it is organized.

I don't agree with the scoring system. Anything based on SCs goes against the how the creator of the game intended it to be played.
I don't agree with the deadlines.
I don't agree with basing nothing on rank. At least being in the top 150ish should be a requirement, otherwise it is just another tourney for the forum/touney regulars rather than "the best of the best".
I don't agree with it only lasting for 3 rounds as MANY good players are currently taking a break from the site.

Based on the above, I also don't agree with the tourney title.

Nonetheless, I'm mainly being cranky and I wish you all the luck and fun with it.
I will strive to have the strength to change what can and 'should' be changed, the courage to accept what can't be changed, and the wisdom to be able to tell the difference.
