One Day Cup Rebirth 10/28 - Sign Ups

Hey, so back in the isotropic days we used to run a few one day tournaments. You can check some of them out by following the links in my sig or going way back to the oldest page in this tournaments sub-forum. I think it's still possible to run one of these on the current platform, so I thought we'd give it a go on a weekend when I'm not too busy.

Since games take longer, I think our best bet is for each round to be best of 3 or best of 2 each round, with ties being allowed if the format allows. I've listed the formats we've used before, it'd be nice to know what you all prefer.

Some rules:

-All participants must have a gold subscription on the day of the event.
-All games will use fully random kingdoms with point tracker on.
-All games should be rated for bookkeeping purposes.
-A time-out/disconnect counts as a game loss, unless your opponent agrees otherwise
-Try to avoid slow-play! Take the time you need, but remember we are trying to complete this in a relatively short time-frame, so be courteous.
-All users must check in on challonge by the sign-in time, tentatively 10:00 EST/14:00 GMT.
-The winner of each match must report the score on challonge and post the results and game #'s in the relevant thread.

If you're interested, please sign up with your dominion.games username here: http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/vAazDKw3Gz

Please feel free to post your comments, questions or concerns here. Otherwise, keep tabs with this thread for details on the format and time once that decision is final, and I'll see you in a few weeks!

I think there needs to be a limit for how long the match can take. If each round can take up to an hour, that should be enough for most best-of-3 matches and it's fine if some aren't.

I'm wary of doing that, since it could encourage slow play if you're in the lead. Not that I think people will do that, but I'd rather remove the possibility. If we are worried we can't get a Bo3 in under an hour, I'd rather just play 2-game matches with draws than enforce a time limit.

If there were a chess clock implemented on the site that'd be a good neutral way to deter slow play, and a Blitz Dominion tournament sounds like it could be a fun idea, for the record. As it is, I'm satisfied relying on the good will of the participants.

I'm envisioning that it wouldn't be a problem when people can spectate games.

Okay yeah, and even without spectators I doubt it will be an issue in a tournament with no physical reward. I'm okay with Bo3, but if you haven't started game 3 within 45 minutes of start time and it's tied 1-1 call it a draw. Sound reasonable?

That sounds pretty good.

I'd be interested, but don't have time on that day.

With regard to the format, I think I'd prefer pure bp2 swiss without playoffs or a straight cut to top 2 for the finals.
