This is an alternate reporting thread for the Yomi Olympic Carnival for when the FS forums eventually go offline.
To celebrate (or whatever) the 2016 Rio Olympics, CloudCuckooCountry and Parrexion are teaming up to bring you an exciting new tournament format for Yomi! Inspired by competitive Hearthstone (or whatever) Conquest Format has players picking a team of characters to take with them through the whole tournament. So how is this any different from Stable Format, you ask? The difference is that instead of having a character eliminated when that character loses a match, it instead gets eliminated when it WINS. That means if you win with Zane, you cannot play Zane for the rest of the set! Since the winner of the round is forced to switch their character, players in this tournament will double-blind pick every match. The player who lost the round may choose to stick with their character or switch to another character that they still have available. Example set: Parrexion drafts team (Grave/Gloria/Onimaru) CloudCuckooCountry drafts team (Argagarg/Geiger/Grave) Round 1: Parrexion (Onimaru) defeats CloudCuckooCountry (Geiger) Parrexion can no longer play Onimaru and must switch his character to either Grave or Gloria. CloudCuckooCountry can pick any of his team for the next match. Round 2: Parrexion (Grave) defeats CloudCuckooCountry (Grave) Parrexion must switch to Gloria in the next match and will play her for the rest of the set, while CloudCuckooCountry can still switch to any of his characters until he wins a game. Round 3: CloudCuckooCountry (Geiger) defeats Parrexion (Gloria) Round 4: CloudCuckooCountry (Grave) defeats Parrexion (Gloria) Round 5: Parrexion (Gloria) defeats CloudCuckooCountry (Argagarg) and wins the set! The details: * Conquest Format (Players submit a team when they sign up or any time before the start date of the tournament. When a player wins with a character, they may not play the character again for the current set and must switch.) * Double-blind each round. * Double elimination. * Sets are first to 3. * Random seeds. * One round per week. * Players may publicly announce their teams in the signup thread or send their team privately to either myself or Parrexion and we will keep them on a secret document. Players who do not submit a team before the tournament start date will be smacked. And if they still do not submit a team, they automatically forfeit the tournament. * In the spirit of the Olympics, players are advised to represent their country of origin, however you can claim to be from fairyland or whatever and I won’t question it. * Also in the spirit of the Olympics, players are advised to use taxpayer money to hire cheap exploitative contractors to build obscenely expensive stadiums to accommodate for this event, after which they will barely be used for anything if at all. * Any player who drafts Zane/Troq/DeGrey will be SHAMED. (They are still allowed to enter the tournament though.) THE DEADLINE FOR SIGNUPS IS SUNDAY AUGUST 14TH at 11.59pm (EST) Good luck and have fun.
