Title: Tourney 8 - Sign up
Post by: [MAF]mooman on June 19, 2016, 07:43:49 am
Vertigo can add more information later but for now the link to sign up is...

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.

well said. last time we had this format. depending of players count, maybe we take other style.

--------------------------------------------

1st tourney had elimination stages each ruond players were eliminated

for example 40 ppl start
 1st round 10 slowest out
30 pll in roiund 2
 next 10 out
round 3, 20 ppl left
 this time 5 out
round 4 15 to go
 3 slowest out
12 guys left
 3 slowest out
9 to go
 3 out
6 in fight for top5
 1 out
5 are left
each next round slowest one gets eliminated
final 1 vs 1

--------------------------------

other option was way how i used scoring in NASCAR races
noone eliminated, winner got most points, then 2nd place, 3rd place etec less.. one who overal collected the most, won
this was very good option for players who were not able to take all runs, yet still count fight for win

We did normal championship points before, but that was my least favourite format. After a few rounds it was clear that only 3 or 4 players could win.

So the vehicle voting is up. I've excluded the vehicles chosen the last two years. Not ideal, but I don't have a lot of time to change things up.

Don't think we'll get 80 this time around

"Signed up players (69/80)"

You are right, it's nowhere close to 80  :L
Of course now we'll have to see if people will actually participate in the races lol

I still don't know when will the event start. If it starts before the 18 July, feel free to remove me from the list, as I wont be at home until then. If not, I would be appreciated if you could tell me the accurate day.
Title: Re: Tourney 8 - Sign up
Post by: [MAF]Vertigo on July 07, 2016, 03:12:37 am
Yes, it will start around then. Sometime after the 16th. Remember you will have a few days after that to do your first race anyway.

Think I might replace some of the slower cars with sports cars. Which ones would you want replaced?
Title: Re: Tourney 8 - Sign up
Post by: Mute. on July 11, 2016, 12:22:03 pm
Kart and bobcat, maybe do another vote for the replacements or choose yourself
Title: Re: Tourney 8 - Sign up

industrial category seems pointless altogether
Title: Re: Tourney 8 - Sign up
Post by: [MAF]Vertigo on July 12, 2016, 12:26:58 pm
I'll get rid of the two industrial cars and the kart, unless there are any objections.
Title: Re: Tourney 8 - Sign up
Post by: [FSR]Ush on July 13, 2016, 03:42:46 pm
Only remove kart, it's shit.
Title: Re: Tourney 8 - Sign up
Post by: Mute. on July 13, 2016, 07:53:46 pm
Industrial cars that are winning the votes are worse than the kart ush lol they need to go too I think
Title: Re: Tourney 8 - Sign up
Post by: [MAF]Cthulhu on July 14, 2016, 03:51:20 pm
so what was the purpose of voting if you're just gonna choose different vehicles? :blank:
Title: Re: Tourney 8 - Sign up
Post by: Mute. on July 15, 2016, 05:24:47 pm
I think he's gonna do a vote on some chosen sports cars.
Title: Re: Tourney 8 - Sign up
Post by: [MAF]Vertigo on July 16, 2016, 12:06:02 am
From an organising point of view, I thought it's great to have a wide range of vehicles. But this year I realised as a player, who the fuck wants to race a Boobcat for 5 minutes? And what level of skill do these slow cars really require? So more fun and a better judge of skill to replace them with sports cars. Pretty logical right? I'll make a quick vote for sports cars.
Title: Re: Tourney 8 - Sign up
Post by: Mute. on July 16, 2016, 07:58:31 am
Good decision it was getting a bit out of hand trying not to use the same cars twice and there's only so many cars lol
