Default Starcraft 2 Tourney

So in the interest of doing an FFR tourney I'm going to update this OP with the names of people on FFR who are interested. If we get about 16 people or so I can plan one of these out. If we can't get enough here I'm sure I could find some people to fill in some blanks.

Also note this will be done on the server with the most players. This means as of right now it's the North American one.

Da List: FFR Name (SC2 name charcode) {7 people}
Xx{Midnight}xX (eiddiM 103) {Gold}
Hakulyte
VarleyIsDance
NekoGon
Izzy
SpookG (SiS.Thrillhouse 226) {Silver}
Skeleton-GotW (iHaveNoIdea 232)
The1 (Panda 323) {Plat}
WolfXHunter (Inimicals 710)
DarkManticoreX2 (Manti 747)
Niala (Niala 266)

The Tourney in a nut shell:

1v1 single or double elimination. Not sure yet.
- 3 divisions?
- Gold/Below
- Platinum/Diamond
- Masters +
- Bo1 then Bo3 then Bo5 and then Bo7?

Map Pool Possibles:
Scrap Station (Crap Station)
Slag Pits
The Shattered Temple
Shakuras Plateau (SP?)
MLG Metropolis
Terminus RE

I'm interested.

As for the map pool as long as you stay in the 2-4 players map in 1v1 and don't use Novice maps with rocks it should be fine.

Are you considering team tournaments too? That would be pool worthy and yet it also depends of how many people actually give it a try.
You can use challonge (google) for brackets or something.

I don't think the date is important, it's more about getting the right amount of people and knowing where this is going (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, FFA? Single elimination/double elimination/etc. ?). Once you're set with this, the date will come by itself.

I figured none of the novice maps even I don't like them.
I was thinking a single elimination 1v1 bracket per division but maybe we could do 2v2s as well.
3v3 and 4v4 are wait macro and rape matches and those are dull.

edit: maybe a FFA for lolz

edit2: We'd also need some extra help with it because one person alone can't run an sc2 tourney x.x

3v3 and 4v4 need more teamwork than macro or micro because when there's 4 people attacking you at same time it doesn't matter if you micro well or got that big army, you're going to get wiped if your allies do nothing. I also feel like it's more friendly because you're not directly targeted during the game. 1v1 is obviously the best choice in terms of gameplay but those matches usually results in lol mad cheesing or more serious games so, depending of what kind of people we get here, this tournament should get oriented to what actually the majority of people feels like playing? Well, basically I'm saying that there should be some kind of pool here asking people what kind of tournament they want to do. It's FFR, not a SC2 forum I'm not sure we have enough SC2 players to actually put restrictions but yeah I'm open to whatever you do. 2v2 is a good middle between skills and teamwork and FFA is pure lol turtle and very easy to get unfair on(lol betrayal and teaming better players) so, I highly don't suggest it but It's definitely something fun to do once in a while if there's a lot of people online.

tldr;

1v1: Timing (How fast you can make the right army and use it efficiently)
2v2: Timing + Teamwork
3v3: Teamwork
4v4: Teamwork
FFA: I-hope-they'll-forget-I-exist-so-I-can-stab-the-last-guy-mania.

I would suggest some custom 1v1 obs games as a first tournament to give an idea of where everyone really stands (I'm both bronze and diamond oops and leagues are almost meaningless but it's the best measure without playing that can give an idea).

For a real choice of maps you should consider checking out what the other hosts are doing in SC2 forums or maybe using some pre-made maps.

It'll probably been a bit before it starts so you have enough time to practice.

Just play Zerg, they don't have walls so no worries and use your osu/FFR/SM insane rhythm skills into SC2 APM, learn a couple of basic build orders and tadam, you're Grandmaster league and they're already calling you to GSL at some Korea place and they're about to pay you and suddenly SC2 is your life.

Oh yeah, you guys should leave your character code here etc. and hopefully if you're on the US Server or not.

I'm Khaotix and code is #843, US Server. Feel free to add me or something. (the main reason I'm saying this is because later if this tournament starts it's going to be easier to organize matches if we already added each others etc. and having a FFR Party wrecking multiplayer could be funny too).

Well... you can go 100-0 in 3v3 or 4v4 if you have a well coordinated timing attack and actually scout. It's nearly impossible to defend a timing attack if your team is taken by surprise.


For maps, you could take 7 maps, let each player or team veto 2 maps (preemptively), randomly choose the order with a randomizer, tell them the order at least 2 days before the matches, and have a best of 3. Knock it up to best of 5 for the semifinals and finals with only 1 veto.

Yeah not having a North American Server Code might be a bit of a problem.

But yeah feel free to post your char. codes and names here to, but please try to keep it more aimed toward the tourney.

My name.charcode is eiddiM.105 (Yes eiddiM is Middie backwards.)

Some maps I was thinking for 1v1:
Terminus
The Shattered Temple
Scrap Station
Any specific ones you guys like?

I should start playing again. I was around top diamond while that was the highest league. Doesn't mean much relatively, but I wasn't bad at the game.

I was in upper gold, almost in platinum but then I started playing WoW. I'd be really rusty but I'm completely down for this. I'd say stick to 1v1 though.

I was wondering if any baller FFR/SM players decided to pick up sc2 and u guys did! Cool! I have been playing Psychopath (k2xl.com) and Portal 2 lately, and haven't been on sc2 in a while, but I am Low Masters and would probably be down for something like that.

Edit: I am "iHaveNoIdea" [#232] by the way

Might pick this up again soon when my new gaming rig is finished, so I can actually play it comfortably. I'm also done school, so I actually have time to sit down and play now.

I was diamond before. Haven't really played since the introduction of masters league. Probably wouldn't make the cut! Need some practice. Was Toss; might switch to Zerg, or dual rep Toss and Zerg (Though, it would be awkward to play both on the ladder. Damn you blizzard and not allowing 2 accounts without paying).


Been watching the ign pro league though. Some nice games there.

Definitely count me
Gold on my most used account(repercussions of a drunken night of throwing 200 games for fun) but I've placed into diamond on other accounts easy so I'd go with plat/diamond
