Default Interest in (User-Run) Tourney

Hi Everyone. As some of you know, I've hosted a few tournaments in the past. It seems like its been awhile since there has been any tournament (official or user-run) so I wanted to gauge the communities interest in having another tournament.

I've put a poll with different tournament "types" to see which type of tourney most people would be interested in. Below are some descriptions:

1) Standard (Elimination): A standard tournament with elimination of players at every round (just like the official tournament).

2) Standard (Cumulative): A standard tournament with cumulative scoring, i.e., play a song each round and the winner is determined by the sum of their raw scores.

3) Rates: A tournament whose premise relies on playing songs on various rates. There are plenty of variations in how this can be done (I've done 2 rate tourneys in the past).

4) Mirror: A tournament whose premise relies on the mirror feature on ffr (e.g. for each round, you have to play a file on mirror and non-mirror and your score for that round is the sum of your mirror and non-mirror scores).

5) Levelrank Fixing: A tournament whose main point is to motivate those that are playing to "clean up their levelranks" by picking files that are close to the bottom of (most) participants levelranks.

6) Other: Let me know if you have another tournament idea you'd like to see executed.

Thanks!

(Note: This is a thread for discussing tournaments and not a tournament thread itself, so I'm not sure if this thread should be in this forum or the tournament one. A mod is free to move it as they see fit)

I don't see how that would work in a competitive setting.

Default Re: Interest in (User-Run) Tourney

For a levelrank fixing tourney, one implementation would be as follows. Fix a division and let P be the set of players in that division. Let S be the collection of songs such that there does not exist a player in P who has AAA'ed it. For each song s in S, calculate A(s) where A(s) is the average of the ranks on s among the players in P. The round for that division will be the s in S that maximizes A(s).

tl;Dr the round song will be a file that everyone has a bad rank on (on average) excluding songs that someone has AAA'ed.

There would be some details I'd need to work out to balance things, but that's the gist. Such a format is subject to being "gamed" in the sense that people can manipulate their levelranks before/during the tournament, but we can just count that as being part of the meta.

I'll put up a tournament thread after a few days after I get a good idea of what kind of tournament people are wanting to play in.

If people want to preemptively join regardless of the format of the tourney, they can just post "in" in this thread and I'll add them to the roster once I start setting up the tourney.

I voted for 'Standard' (Elimination & Cumulative). It's been ages since I've participated in a tournament on the site. It would be good to take part in one again. I'd be in whenever you create a proper thread - been wanting to get back into this game properly. I'll be D5!!
