https://www.toornament.com/tournaments/ ... nformation

For the rules, refer to the link above, I report an abstract but there may be small fixes.

- after the registration, the player has to mention the signup on the forum, to keep track of active users.
- for every match both players have to play all the multiplayer maps available, and report the replay ids (if possible on the forums). In case of tie, the match goes to the player with higher score in the leaderboard.
- to play a match both players have 2 days. Otherwise the match is assigned to the player that played within the days scheduled for the match, a ranked game.


16 slots (I hope the platform does not force us to wait until 16 players signs up).

Actually as soon as the slots are filled or enough days are passed, I will start the tournament.

Short info on the swiss system: it ensures that frequent winners gets paired against frequent winners, so the games are always intensive. The system is also used by the chess olympiad.

If you have feedback, say it :)


Results

I have to reorder the standings due to two matches.

So the first part of the standings is like shown on toornament.

Then Ox1de won Mrchris due to inactivity of the latter, so Ox1de has 5 points.

Then comes the group with 4 points, plus B head, that won Einstein due to the inactivity of Einstein but I could not fix the match result.

then the rest. TheKidPunisher with his all assault did not have much chances (considering also the "luck" generated by the swiss system in terms of pairings)

Edit. I want to thank GFX for the site. I tested (years ago) at least 5 different web applications for tournaments, they were really limiting. This toornament is pretty flexible.

Hi, that's a super initiative. Thanks
I'm only found a bit disapointing the rule about Tie (highest ELO score win by default)...

I will anyway be in.

Imho at a tie the lowest elo should win because it's harder to fight tougher opponents.

Actually is the second tie breaker. The first is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buchholz_system .

The leaderboard part is to remind everyone that ranked games are useful. (we do not want the equivalent of fifa rankings)

Hmm, it is an idea.

List so far. Reminder: if I see that the registration slow down, by experience, it is a moment to start the tournament instead of losing interest by all the players. Better half filled, than filled and with all "bye" after some days.

Oh, I thought you was talking about the tiebreaker for each individual set, not the tiebreaker for the tournament as a whole. If that's the case, the that's fine

No the prize package is important. The hugs part is mandatory.

Also since tournaments requires more effort (not just playing) . I'm pretty sure the unavoidable tournaments will return always a better idea of who is dominating than tournaments with subscription.
