[Tournament]Treefolk Invitational Series

Hi guys I am Tree.  ;)

Right, I will host a tournament.  :-[

Here we go the Treefolk Invitational Series:

Introduction:
This tournament is a series of game in a league style for experienced players, not experts though. For this reason, every level 40+ players on the leaderboard today(28/03/2013) are not eligible for the tournament(which are actually only 7 players, including me, hideyoshi, alvin1912, yaron, ksasaki, yuki(First) and isomophic). I first apologize to the other 6 on the list but this series are just too shallow to contain you guys, and I do believe there is a reason why you guys are always on level 40+ which cannot be balanced with other players. In order to make the skill level among players more balanced, players who are interested must have at least played 50 registered games on the isotropic leaderboard and have a minimum level of 5 in-order to join this tournament.

Style:
There will be a series of gameplay in swiss format in the first stage of the tournament and post-season games after that, depends on the amount of players joined. Dividing groups may be necessary if the amount of players exceeds certain amount.

Format:
For each opponent, we play best of 7.
Each week you will be matching against someone. You will have a whole week to finish the series of BO7 though, and it may be in the format of 7 games in a row, 3+4, 4+3, 2+2+3 or something equivalent.

Expansion used?
Echoes are still under consideration. My personal preference are on the echoes side since playing 7 base games are simply boring enough, but if some of the players have absolutely zero knowledge in echoes...depends, still mindstorming on this one.

Anything else?
I will welcome any opinion from you guys and once an complete idea is formed I will post the official note.  8)

Well, I agree the 7 guys may be too "expert" for the tournament.

However, I am not sure whether level 5 is a good cutoff. The skill difference between 39 and 5 may be a large gap. Well, I may suggest making two tournaments, one having level-limit and one for public. Well, it may be a heavy workload and do not meet the origin of Tree. You may forget this if you do not like it, well.

For the expansion issue, well, I do not see there are so many players playing echoes, even for experienced. I would say base would be better choice for common tournament.

Original thought are using level 10 as a cutoff but actually there are some players who actually understand what's going on after some 200 games and they fall off level 10 in the process...so I am still considering a better rework on this  :-\

well, then it may be better to just no cutoff for level, and just need 50 games in iso only. I just think level 5 cutoff is a little bit too strange. It may be better to invite every players to join. Just need to remind them they need to think themselves as "experienced players".

I would love to play but I don't think I currently qualify.  If you need extra fodder or relax the requirements or I make it by the time signups are over, though, count me in!

I'd like to join, but I haven't broken 50 games yet. But I only started a few days ago. I think I would be plenty competitive with the other players though. I'll probably reach 50 games in like 3 days.
