OK - so I'm thinking of just changing the title for this thread/tourney.
Here's how i propose we organize things:
- It's an invitation
- It's techincally a ladder
- Tourney will be 2v2
- We rotate teammate combos.
- The other team picks your dgs
The overall goal will mostly be fun. As long as everyone is willing to put in a little effort, as long as 4 folks are online at the same time, people could start playing matches whenever. We could set a static time each night where folks should get online if they can. And again, all we need is 4 people and we'll split up teams. No one will be on the same team twice, so just mix n match.
We could extend the invites to whoever we wanted. Even if there is a weaker player in the mix, everyone would have to play with that person once, so that should offset things a bit, methinks.
The other angle, but unfortunately one that complicates things a little more - I'd like it if we could figure out a way to have the occasional challenge games. Eg I could challenge another team where we pick our dgs or teammates or whatever. I'm not sure how we could do that, though, as more games played potentially gives you an advantage on the ladder.
All of that said, I THINK the jee site could track stats for us and we could record the games there - we'd need a spreadsheet though to track who played with who, etc.
The ideal setup for me would be to just have games start weeknights at around 7PM EST. So, everyone shows up - someone hosts a LADDER game, and folks that are in the ladder can join. That should facilitate getting some games going quickly if people would make an effort to be around then.
