Thanks to everyone who participated in last nights tournament ^^ I had a great time jumping in and out of matches to check the scores and stuff. I think we all where a bit surprised by MR’s preformance, and Kraetyz had some crazy Geiger ditto going on against NiGHTcapD if i remember correctly.
Anyways, not everything is perfect, so any feedback on what worked and maybe especially on what didn’t work?
Obviously the elephant in the room is that Fivec and Kraetyz has not played their Grand Finals yet. This is not something I want happening again in the future. I did not forsee how long double elimination would take, in addition to halting winners finals until after losers final so that more people could watch both of them.
What should be done to avoid this? If I had had a set time for the tournament to finish, then fivec might have not joined, knowing that he would not be able to see it through to the finals, and that would have solved the problem.
If it is a single elimination tournament, it would also be finished more quickly. But I don’t really want to make it a single elim, tho I see some really good upsides to having it be a single elim tournament.
Any other thoughts?
