I don’t suppose we could implement a rule that whenever somebody doesn’t show up for a scheduled match the opponent gets spotted a game?

So, @Sirlin just layed out his randomized design for a conquest style format (as a Fantasy Strike game mode), and I think I have a way to adapt it to online Yomi (and this seems like the tournament to try it on). I’ll lay out my proposal, and then let you all shoot holes in it.

So, the idea is that (as in regular conquest) each player picks a stable of 3 characters. They need to win with each of the characters once in order to win the set. However, rather than choosing who they will play in a given round, it is selected randomly. If you win a game, your character is removed from play (you won’t play with them again this set). If you lose a game, your character is set aside until you have played with the rest of your stable, and then is reshuffled in.

For example, say I’m playing :vendetta::persephone::bbb: to your :grave::argagarg::jaina:. The set goes as follows:

:persephone: > :jaina: (both selected from the full stables)
:bbb: < :grave: (:bbb: selected from :vendetta::bbb:, :grave: selected from :grave::argagarg:)
:vendetta: < :argagarg: (only remaining characters)
reshuffle :bbb::vendetta:, :jaina: only one remaining opposing
:bbb: > :jaina: (:bbb: selected randomly from :bbb::vendetta:)
:vendetta: < :jaina: (only remaining characters)

The difficulty in our tournament Yomi set would appear to be the randomness. To alleviate that, I’m proposing to roll all the numbers up front in the match scheduling threads. Each player will get 3 numbers from 1-6. Each match that needs random selection, the next number will be used to select your character. If you have 3 left, then 1-2 gets you the 1st on (alphabetically), 3-4 the 2nd, 5-6 the 3rd. If you have 2 left, then 1-3 gets you the first, 4-6 gets the second.

In the above example, the number strings might have been 3-3-1 and 6-4-X (the last random number for player 2 is never used).

I’m going to use TO’s privilege to make this rule change, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on it:

  • Love it!
  • Seems interesting, willing to try.
  • I’ll allow it…
  • No comment
  • I dunno about this, but I’ll give it a shot.
  • This is terribad, you’re going to ruin the format, I’m out!
