Hey Bas,
This is really cool! But I would suggest to change a couple things so this can have a successful start.

I would recommend making this a monthly procedure with the following format:
(For the sake of argument, lets suppose we have a number of teams between 8 – 16)
Week 1-3:

  • All rounds BO1 except for Final and Third place matches. (These could all be BO3, depending on how many teams sign up, etc…)
  • Each SET victory earns 1 SOAC point.
  • Each bye earns 0.5 points.
  • If a team doesn’t show they lose -1 point.
    The winnings for this (FOR NOW) should be gold, I will explain why in a bit. A 60/30/10 split should be fine.

Week 4:
Tally up all the points; top 8 teams get to compete in that week’s tournament.

  • All rounds of this can be BO3, no SOAC points are awarded or deducted for any of these matches.
  • Top 3 teams split the monthly donations 60/30/10 (or another appropriate split), I would recommend 50/25/10 to top 3 and 15 to the hosting organization (this is up to you).
  • After the tournament is over, all SOAC points get reset for the next monthly series.

OK, now to WHY it should be gold and not $$$ for the first 3 weeks. This is because the game is still young and granted there are many people willing to throw money at the game, money itself is not going to be the single factor that revitalizes this game.
The biggest thing we need right now is competition. This sort of monthly tournament series will encourage rewarded competition with little pressure for donors to meet any sort of weekly quota.

I hope you find this helpful, best of luck, and thanks for doing this!

Acandis, this is a really good idea. We are actually going to change the donations to in game gold for the time being. WE will be looking at your idea closely and mostly likely take a lot of it into the future tournaments!

I would love it if we could get 5 more teams to sign up and push this to a 16 team performance. Remember this is a tournament to sign up for experience for when the big ones come around. I ran into 5-10 teams the other night, and was stunned that they weren’t going to sign up to any tournaments until they felt they were ready to be really good.

Tournament queuing as it currently is a false sense of security. The current top teams queue for a bit, but most of their time is spent scrimming and practicing against each other while prepping for tournaments.

It would be a great tournament to start off in. A lot of the teams are newer, and while the bracketing will be random we will probably split the newer teams into their own random bracket and keep the veteran teams in the other bracket. So guys like Sleepy won’t face a brand new team.

Good work trying to encourage new teams, I’d love to get in on this some day.

One suggestion on that: You could always run some prelim matches with new teams to make it into the main bracket. I’d watch those.

We are looking into it. We just don’t want to take anything away from the upcoming tournaments so any prelim will be done the week of the tournament.

Okay guys it’s time for me to go out and pound the doors for donations. In the future we may simply charge 5 gold per team as an entrance fee to ensure that the donations needed are minimal.

I believe currently we sit at 45 to 50 gold of our estimated 150gold needed. If you would like to donate even 1 gold please donate the gold to Lunet.8076. If you have any questions, comments or issues, don’t be afraid to message me.

SOACGaming is going to be pulling out of the first one as they are worn out, but they will be back the following week. So Sittingonacouch is playing for SOAC woohoo!!! Go Blue Go!!
