May as well. Last year this thread existed in January already.



So I had plans in hosting Mario Kart 7 & 8 tournaments. I haven't set up solid plans yet, but I expect it to be similar to last year. MK8's online gameplay is still unknown at this point though.

Anything on Wii (think MKWii/SSBB) will not be possible, since that is ending too soon discontinued.



Lakituthequick: Mario Kart 7
Mario Kart 8
Pyro (LTQ co-host):Minecraft
Superchao and MrConcreteDonkey:Mafia
New Super Mario and DragonFreak:Yu-Gi-Oh Dueling Network
LumastarMario Golf: World Tour
Dippy:Team Fortress 2
???:Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS
Green = confirmed
Purple = suggestion
Gray striked = deconfirmed

Discussed this the last 30-or-so minutes of this night's meeting, small recap:
  • Discussed Minecraft, Pyro has a spreadsheet with some suggestions that were discussed, along changes from last year. (Link to sheet)
    Also, Uniju and Toadbert have made a list of suggestions on Minecraft themselves, though it's unclear yet if they want to host their own version or let them merge with Pyro and co-host. (Link to list)
  • Suggested that we do both MK7 and MK8 (though we pretty much did that already).
  • Also suggested was SSB4, might be out by late-July at earliest. We don't know who suggested it, might be GameFreak. Don't know who would host it.
  • Also, it was mentioned that Dippy wants to do TF2 again.

So the latter two where added in the OP.

I'm really bad at coming to meetings huhhh

Do you guys think we should go for another Pokemon tournament? I wouldn't mind hosting it again, especially since I have some more experience with the thing. I think we'd probably draw in more people too (not that 10 people was a bad draw last year for a first time tournament).

I'd like a pokemon tournament again, and while I raised a tiny fuss about people using copy/paste teams there's kinda not really anything that can be done about it so whatevs I'd be fine with what we did last year but with the newer games. After all, we can just ridicule and shame people who pull their teams literally from pages like this on our own time :)

Last time at Dragonball Z the meeting:
  • Lotsa talk about who would host a Mafia game, if any. Blocky and MCD are gonna do it.
  • Packy suggested Pokémon X/Y.
  • SSB4 has passed again, but we're still not sure about the release date and such.
  • Talk about DotA has passed, and Dippy might not host TF2 after all. Groden was mentioned as a potential for the latter though.
  • Mario Gold: World Tour was mentioned, but it's popularity is unknown.

I know Smasher said he would not mind being my co-host again, but if I can at least for sure get a confirmation on that I would be glad to start working on tournament stuff now, if I can get a green-light for it also from the rest of you guys.

I'd like to take away smogon teams but it would probably piss off a lot of people and I'm not sure if I want to go through with that. Doing that would probably take away some players so ehhh...

(but i like that eevee team !!)

Yeah, at the very least, we should keep the same no legendaries, no same Pokemon, no same items rule as last time. Also, are there any banned mega evolutions of Pokemon? I'm thinking that, since Blaziken is already considered top-tier, that his Mega Evolution be banned lest everyone be spamming him. I'm not too familiar with the Pokemon meta game, but I also heard Mega Kangaskhan is considered OP too.

I don't know too much about the Mega Evolutions (to be truly honest, I haven't gotten very far in my copy of X) but it would probably be for the best to ban them. They do seem rather OP and I don't want them ruining the balance of a tournament.

That being said, those same rules are probably going to stand (no legendaries, no same Pokemon, no same items) unless anybody has a legitimate reason to not implement them.

Mega Evolutions give Pokémon major stat boosts and sometimes cause ability/type changes. I agree that it'd probably be a good idea to ban them all instead of a select few.

I think banning all Mega Evolutions in general would be bad and would probably turn people off the whole thing (i.e. why bother using X/Y if you aren't going to use Mega Evolutions), but banning the stuff like Mega Blaziken and Mega Kangaskhan would be fine.

idk we should at least ban the stupid ones, no legendaries, etc

if we were to ban all the mega evos and people asked that, we would tell them that we have to use x and y because it's the only main game with functioning wifi (to my knowledge)

So DF and I will be hosting a Dueling Network tournament! :D

I have some token ideas hear so I figured I'd just post them. Tell me what you think and how I should balance it. (also I assume the tournament would be a kind of single elimination thing)

I'm also not sure how many people will participate as of yet so DF and I might adjust it after we know.

I was thinking about earning tokens based on what combos you do and cards and stuff like that, but I don't really want to have people adding up all this stuff as they play, so I'm just going to go with the basics.

So this would be for a 16 person bracket. We're probably just going to keep it even with either 8, 16, or 32 just to keep it consistent, so I would just add/get rid of a round if it's not 16 (plus play in games are just meh)

Lose in round 1 (consolation prize yay): 2 tokens
Win a duel in round 1: 4 tokens
Win a duel in round 2: 6 tokens
Win a duel in the final four: 10 tokens
Place 3rd/4th: 6 tokens
Place 2nd: 12 tokens
Place 1st Place: 15 tokens

So 1st place, added together would rank you 35 tokens. 2nd would get you 32 tokens. 3rd and 4th would get you 16 tokens. Then if you place somewhere after that you could get either 4 tokens if you win one game in the first round, or 2 if you just lose right away.



Also these would be optional, so I want to hear your opinions (more so for token balancing, I don't expect you to know what this is if you don't play yugioh)

These would be for after the duel ends sort of "achievements".

Win the duel with the help of a spell or trap card: 1 token
Win the duel by attacking with a monster with less than 500 attack points: 2 tokens
Win the duel within 5 turns: 2 tokens
Win the duel with 8000 LP still left: 4 tokens
Lose from a close game (less than 1501 lp between you and your opponent at the end of the duel): 4 tokens
Come from behind and win (you with 2000 or less LP and your opponent with 7000 LP or more): 4 tokens

Also players would have to use the same deck through the whole tournament.

Wow, more than I would have done. Good ideas.

To add: we may do more achievements. Like X tokens if you have more the Y Fusion, Synchro, or XYZ summons in a duel. Or dealing X amount of battle damage in one turn or an OTK.

Also, NSM and I will probably be the offials at these, and if there is one thing about Yu-Gi-Oh, that there is a lot of rules, and there has to be officials.

Also, I was thinking that each face-off duel would be the best 2 out of 3 instead on single games. I think a 2 out of 3 is the best way to accurately defeat someone.

Yeah I definitely like the 2 out of 3 thing.

Plus the officials can help keep track of token count, and it's just important to have someone watching to prevent cheating or incorrect playing.

35 Tokens is not that high of an amount, in my opinion. Last year, my MK7 thing got Cirdec 90.

Also, I have no idea how that YGO stuff works so I'm not able to judge game-specific things you mentioned.
Yeah I was kind of taking into account that it is probably going to be a bit smaller scale than the Mario Kart tourneys so I just lowered it a bit.

But if everyone thinks I should raise them, I suppose so.
