3rd Official KoRx Tournament (Discussion)



So, I'm juggling the idea of a tournament... one with an incentive to win this time... Before I post this up on the forums, I'd like to hear some feedback and ideas. We all know how the last tournament went with just one team. I think this tournament should have 2 weeks for signup, then it starts the day after the two weeks end. But the real issue is finding a good time and day that everyone can join.

Also, I'd like to have some awards for the winners. I've lightly discussed this matter with Eagle and it needs some running over. I can commit about $100 myself, since I haven't made a server payment in forever, and I know Natural Violence could throw some money at this as well. I also need to know how many other commitments I could get.

If all goes well, I expect to get at least $200 for this. The third place team would get bragging rights and a rank on the forum (free). Second place would get one a KoRx mousepad $15.10 KoR zazzle gift certificates ($60.40), to spend on any design they like, and a forum rank. First place would get a KoRx T-shirt $26.10 KoR zazzle gift certificate ($104.40), to spend on any design they like, and a forum rank. Comes to a total of 164.80, which should be easy to obtain.

So, ideas?

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

If we can pull the money together that would be pretty awesome. It would definitely get people to participate. Maybe advertise this tournament elsewhere if we don't get enough teams. I'll be gone pretty much all July, so I doubt I can do this if anyone even wanted me on the team. I'm not sure if this is the place, but how would the maps be decided?

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

Eh, good question. I'll probably glance at tremstats for the most balanced map and go from there.

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

Well that's possible, but we could also just offer a general zazzle certificate. But I'd really like to get some memorabilia out there. This also gives some shirt makers incentive to make some stuff for us.

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

right now treecannon_b4_gmotmod06 looks like it's pretty balanced.

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

It might look balanced, but I feel there are way too many camping spots. We need a map a little more open and basic. We'll probably do atcs for the finals, but push for the preliminaries?

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

I'd be more inclined to say Grangercannon, as that has multiple base locations, varied building, and is slightly less campy.

I'm going through the list, and here are the ones that may work:

Marine Combat Center (mcc)
subterranean_0-1
grangercannon

I need some financial commitments and stuff first. I also need more feedback from more clan members before I even say we're going to roll with this thing.

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

WHOA WHOA WHOA whoa whoa whoa, seriously? prizes?
i don't think this is a good idea, i don't know why i can't explain but i think it's a really bad idea.

the point of a tournament is so it's fun, not so it's a competition to win a prize. (well no it is for prizes, but not on a free game where people play for fun)
and if this competition does go ahead, i feel that it should be for Americans only.
Since any Euro player going against them are most likely to lose anyway i think it'd be best to keep it restricted to Americans this time to see how it goes.
if the tournament goes well and things turn out good then MAYBE next time have a Euro version (I'm sure Camper could host one for us Euro players)

I'm sure Brrr would agree with me on this, since we have 160+ ping trying to hit someone with 60 ping is very hard.

so there are my thoughts.


Americans only, if all goes well Euro's only next time.

Just learn how to shoot with your damn ping.

And last time a checked a tournament is a competition to win first prize.

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

Sounds good, although I don't think I can do that much with the new ping. I'll participate though, I like events, especially tournaments :D
I don't expect to win, this should be done for fun and not for the rewards anyway.

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

I don't really care one way or another if prizes are included. I'd like a mousepad, but it's not my primary motivator. If we're looking to make this a big event that includes other clans, we'll NEED prizes. We're not exactly popular on tremulous.net.

True that Revo, we need to be at a point where we aren't that nooby and we aren't that popular, just in the middle. xD

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

Maybe 3rd place be a t-shirt. 2nd be a mousepad and t-shirt, and 1st be a $25 giftcard to zazzle? It'd be cheaper and more organized.

Re: 3rd Official KoRx Tournament

I think that this is a great idea. If we actually had prizes and we advertize this correctly, we would get a pretty good amount of people to opt in the tournament. Also, I disagree with every single line Milk said. It's not that difficult for people with higher ping to completely dominate low pingers. If we do advertise this we're gonna need to make the tournament at least 2-4 weeks after because if people who have never played KoRx before but want to play in this tournament will need a while to get the hang of it.
