Mario Golf: World Tour --- Conclusion; tokens up!
« on: May 02, 2015, 08:17:00 PM »

Welcome to the second Mario Golf: World Tournament contest, hosted by yours truly. I'm still working out some kinks, but I figured it would be best to post this here and now to see what numbers I'm working with so I have more time to really plan this out.

LumastarEST (GMT-6)4167-4661-3943

Rules and Format:

This will be a Round Robin tournament; I will be using a point system, and matches will be best out of three using Match Play. As I've decided it now, each win you have over your opponent equals half a point for yourself; so win 2-0, and you get a point, but win 2-1, and you get only half a point. Settings will always be nine holes (front/back), medium wind, and tournament tees, with coins off, flight paths on, and maximum time for turns.

For the first match of a set, the players choose their preferences out of Forest Course, Seaside Course, or Mountain Course and whoever the game selects is where the match will take place. Subsequent matches will be decided by the loser's choice; the options for this are Peach Gardens, Yoshi Lake, Wiggler Park, DK Jungle, or Bowser's Castle. Think of these as starter and counterpick stages (except they're courses), and DLC ones can count as both starter and counterpick assuming the two players have it. The winner of the first/second match can strike two of the five counterpicks, three if 2 DLC courses can be played on, and four if 4 or more of the DLC courses can be played on. However, Sparkling Waters is banned. Alternatively if you wish, you can just choose any stage disregarding that format if both players agree on it, otherwise that's how it'll roll.

As aforementioned, this starts on July 14th. Preferably I'd like players to aim for 3+ matches a week, as my decided deadline is August 11th, which should be waaaaaay more than enough time. If two players cannot play by this time for mutual reasons, I will declare it a tie and neither will receive any points. Each week, there will be at least one in-game tournament as a distraction while players wait for their matches to happen, it will last a week. If we finish earlier, I will increase the rate of side-tournaments until all my planned ones have been run through, at which point I will tally up the scores for everything and share token gain.

I've settled on token distribution being decided by your final point total + a bonus for your ranking, how many matches you've played and how many side tournaments you've entered, with a small bonus for ranking in the top three. However if two scores are tied in these they will receive the same amount of tokens for placement, as giving someone priority due to them getting a good score faster is pretty unfair as we all have different schedules.

I'm interested in this, but I'll let you know by next week if I can actually sign-up.

(I'm only posting this so you can potentially count me in case there aren't enough people for the tournament.)

I'm gonna bump this in case anyone else cares.

Though at the moment there'll probably just be the round robin portion and maybe just one extra round for the top two, there's too few people to do much more than that.

B-b-b-b-bump, I just want to say that sign-ups close on July 12th, and I'm planning to start the thing on July 14th.

The majority of the details on how this tournament will play out will be given next week most likely.

Tokens are not decided by your final point total, but rather your final ranking for the tourney. This applies to the side-tournaments as well, however if two scores are tied in these they will receive the same amount of tokens, as giving someone priority due to them getting a good score faster is pretty unfair as we all have different schedules.

Uhhhh I kind of fell asleep writing this so idk if there's anything else I wanted to say, rip.
