Tourney 8 - Sign up

Same as last year everyone!

It will once again be world cup/champion's league style. A league/knockout tournament.

How it will work:
Group Stage
-Everyone will be randomly split into 16 groups of 5 players.
-The top players will be seeded through highscores to ensure that we don't get the 6 best players in the same group (kinda like champions league).
-Each player will 'race' every other player in the group twice. This means, with 5 in a group, everyone will race 8 times, with each tt race's times compared to one other player.
-Because of uneven numbers in each group, there will be 10 rounds and everyone will have 2 byes. I hope that makes sense for everyone.
-The winner of the TT duel will receive 3 points, the loser 0.
-For example: My first race is against mooman, and my time is 2 seconds faster,  so I get 3 points. My second race is against Snoopy, and my time is 10 seconds faster, so I get 3 points. In total I now have 6 points.
-After the 8 races, the two players with the most points will progress to the next stage.
-In the event of 2 or more players at the top of the group having the same points, a bonus round will be played, where the players with the best times will progress.

I think the biggest benefit of this is that if you have a problem in one race, say a timeout or some other bad luck, you are not immediately out of the tournament. You can still win other races to get to first or second place in the group and then progress to the knockout stage.

Knockout Stage
-After the group stage, the top 2 players from each group will be randomly drawn an opponent. If you finished top, you will verse someone who finished 2nd in a different group and visa versa.
-The two players will drive a TT race, the driver with the best time progressing to the next round.

Here are examples of what I'm thinking:

Don't think we'll get 80 this time around, as I kinda expected, so there will be a mix up to the size/number of groups.

Excuse my noobish question but I wonder, if this is a racing server, why tournaments are FIFA world cup style instead of FIA F1 or GT1 style?.

I think is more proper of a racing server have tournaments based on sports racing chanmpoinships where all teams or racers can compete in a race or event at same time, instead of having tournaments based on sports where only 2 teams can fight at same time, racing is not that kind of sport so that's why racing championships are made with a different setup that football or tennis or chess or any other two-teams matches sports.

Thanks for your attention and waiting for your answers.

There was voting about it last year(?) if i'm not mistaken and people voted for group stage-elimination way, and people actually liked it.
i think theres nothing wrong with this format.
