Regarding a possibility of having a short 2v2 single elimination tourney

A lot of people of suitable skill are back and play every day, or almost every day. At the very least: nnnils, Mythrandar, yellow_belly, Darkliath, Sharingan (Killer_Bee), Glagol (Steel_Spirit), seola_DMS, AntarestheKuuk, jakins, marchidanu, doggu, Quincrane, Rin, reggird, Invisible_XXV, gazcrowbar, visca_el_barca, IN1.

There are a lot of people that don't play every day, but whom I still see several times a week (like KALEL or Soccer_Mom), and there are some players that I can't really say are the same level (i. e. they can't fight nnnils, for example), yet they are pretty darn good, still (Pureriff, MegaAnt, cartman, etc.). 

Given the high number of skilled regulars, maybe there is a possibility to conduct a 2v2 tourney? I'd keep the rules as simple as possible: single elimination, any DGs, no doubles, but the sum of DGs each team uses must be 4 points or less (as per the 2010 3v3 tourney: UB, Oak, Erb, Rook = 3; Sed, Occ, QoT, TB = 2; Reg, DA = 1).

Anyone interested?

I won't participate or organize this time around, but if you throw something together I'd be glad to pin the post for you in the general forum.  Hope you can drum up enough interest and get it together.

this is just a suggestion, if u mix all the players to make teams even its much more intresting otherwise it will be just more of the same, guys like nnils teaming up with yellow _belly i mean who will want to play them with one of the less skilled(not naming any1), part of the reason i didnt care for any of the other tournments was that the teams were crazy stacked, but maybe i'm wrong and most ppl like it this way, after all the other tourneys were a sucess i think.

Hm. Well. It's more about the synergy between the players, if you ask me. I'll probably play either with Darkiliath or with yellow_belly, since I feel we work best together. Certain great players (like Soccer_Mom) I don't understand. Your suggestion is reasonable, but, on the other hand, I highly doubt anyone will like the randomization of teams. People should play with whomever they like.

Well, the list was a tentative one, and very far from being comprehensive (:

Guys, if you wish to sign up for the tourney as pairs, please name yourself and your partner here.

For starters, that's gonna be: nnnils + yellow_belly; Mythrandar + IN1 (unless both were joking, that is!).

I'll surely do some advertising in game, but whoever reads forums.

why not open tournament between any player wishing to participate?

There are a lot of us new players who wish to test their mettle in pairs with excellent gamers?

I've never implied it is intended to be a closed tourney...

Since I actually observe a lot of interest, I'm going to create a new thread for rules, teams registration and schedule discussion.

I'm surely gonna play in the cup but we must to do it fast, before people will disperese.. about rules: 3-2-1 points for each DG is good. If we can reach 8 teams - so 2 groups, single-eliminating group stage, then in same way semi-finals and bo-2 final and 3rd place match. What do you think about it?..

athelasloriel - it would be hard for pro players to submit to a Pantheon style matching... truth be told I also would like to have more of a chance than to start with a zero-game new player on my team.

...but, perhaps in the bracketing OMGIN1 would consider a "Wildcard" round where whatever new or mid teams enter, can single eliminate each other so at least there is an acheivable goal for us!!! - earning the one or two team slots at the pro-level. Yes it would be alot like Hunger Games for us but still kinda cool! It would also encourage the steamers in the community and be something for us to brag about later... what do you think?

well, I as a newer player wouldn't go to a tourney where vets are teaming with vets.

On a contrary note, if teams were randomized at start - new ones would have a chance to prepare with their teammates - earning the community induction of bigger transfer of game knowledge and hints as well as better fun.

 

It would make players get voice comms, train them to function as a team and be more fun in general.

 

It would also be a great source of a new set of replays (which could then during play or replay be filmed for you tube and Demigod homepage etc.) to entice a few more ppl joining in.

 

Tournamet should definitely be announced on and to Steam officials, maybe theyd find it interesting enough, and they would definitely get us some prizes from them.

 

My 5 cents and a few ideas.
