I want to try an alternate system for playing in a Tournament. The way I see it, there are some options.
1. Individual play within a bracket
2. Team-based play
With the individual play, there are two strategies:
I. A two sided bracket with the winners on both sides facing off
II. Losers bracket, with the winner of the loser bracket facing off against the winner
For team based play, there are some fun things that can be done as well. A team of 3-4 players can get together and come up with a Team Name. Once that is done, that team can compete against all of the other teams. If it's big enough, there could even be divisions where you play your rivals twice, but that's only an option. At the end of the year, the top two teams play against each other to determine the winner.
I'll sum up the options here:
I. Team based play with divisions
II. Team based play where each team plays each other once
So this is going to be a thread to talk about the options that can be considered. I want to create the best format possible for this format I'll host. I really like the team based option, but it is also the most complicated. I'd like to hear some thoughts on some of these formats.
