Poll: Tournament Planning (UPDATED!)

And we’re off on another tournament, so it’s time to plan the next one. November will be a standard 20XX counterpick tournament. And, for December, we have an exciting new option! @mysticjuicer has agreed to let me offer up 19XX: Titan 5 as on option for an upcoming tournament!

Looks like December will be 19XX Titan 5, so get hype to sign up for that later today!

January 2020

  • A Balanced Clash
  • Persephone’s Pick Your Poison
  • Mirror Match Mayhem
  • Yomi Crunch (Fast Timer)
  • Lum’s Long Odds
  • Lum’s Lucky Lottery
  • Balance Team Battle (Balance Team Battle Tournament Idea)
  • Round and Round It Goes ([Yomi] Tournaments ideas sharing)
  • Take This Challenge ([Yomi] Tournaments ideas sharing)
  • Forever Double-Blind
  • Standard Counterpick
  • 19XX Titan 5 No 19XX in January, because December’s 19XX won’t be finished, and won’t have a winner to name January
  • Single Character Showdown (with apologies to @snoc)

By nearly-unanimous decision (5 of 7 voters), we’re doing a Fast Timer tournament in January to ring in the new year.

Here’s the poll for February, and then I’m planning to start IYL in March!

I’ve launched February’s tournament. March won’t have a new tournament, because we’ll be starting IYL instead! April might, depending on how hungry folks are.

Is there any chance of bringing back the Solo Showdown, or something like it?

(That would be a tournament where everyone picks one character at the start of the tournament, and no switching is allowed -you have to stay on your choice through all your matches. Some bans might be in order.)

Yeah, happy to add it to the list.

Ok, I’ve been a bit lax, but here’s the poll for deciding what November’s tournament will be (I picked Balance Team Battle for the Sept/Oct tournament).

0 voters

Format ideas:

18xx: Troq/Geiger/Zane/Degrey/Arg/Lum/Grave/Oni/Sets banned

Pick a super: Characters only get one side of their super

Snake Draft: Team draft without teams, and less characters (possibly more bans)

Mixed tier stables: Divide cast into high tier, mid tier and low tier construct a stable with one from each grouping. (I also am heavily in favor of any roster type format allowing changing rosters between opponents. Allows more experimentation as tournament goes on)

if mixed tier wins (which i think it will) I would like to suggest the small change that I had suggested of I’ll make a price for each char you get a salary and make a team off the price

Works for me. I think that we’d need make sure teams are of fixed size, though.

yeah i was assuming teams of size 5 and matchups done like BTB in my head

Yeah, I think that makes sense. It could also be done as “win once w/ each character in your stable, loser counterpicks” style, I think.

Heyo, we have a winner! December will be Salary Cap Yomi nee Mixed Tier Stables. @mastrblastr, I’m gonna need that tier list from you when you get a chance.

Question: is there any place I can see the rules-summary for each of these tournament types? I happen to know what 19XX and Lum’s Lucky Lottery are, but I’m now sure I know what Persephone’s Pick Your Poison or Lum’s Long Odds are.

There’s not, at the moment, except by looking at old tournament announcements. But, I’ll try and throw together a Tournament Format thread w/ a wiki post for each format, so that we have them.
