Hey there, TLDR AT THE END since I've been active for a month now again and really feeling the surfing gameplay, I've made my ideas of something which could promote our community and also be useful for the upcoming youtube channel. I've been talking to a lot of people on the servers as well as to Rizor and Co. and I decided to plan a surfing tournament. In the first place, I'd need the okay from n0 since we would need additional ressources and also some prices for e.g. the top3. But let's start with the facts I came up with: There's two types of tournaments: A serious tournament, where surfers will face each other in a 1v1 on a random map (!challenge). We could do Bo2 here or just make it bo1 K.O. We'll have brackets, matches will be randomized. I'm thinking about 32 slots, that would make 6 rounds and 63 matchups (BO1). So this should pretty much fill a whole day including small breaks and some organizing delay. We could make it like trofle did on his stream once: Everyone in the tournament starts at the same time and the first three guys going through the finish line will be written down. Then it goes onto the next map until we had like 10-20 maps and we'll summarize and make out the top3 overall. As I said, I already talked to Rizor and we came to the conclusion, that the first type is probably the better typ. It's more serious, we could use alot more footage out of it for the youtube channel and it won't be a clusterfuck. So we could maybe do the second type just as a small fun competition where everyone can join in. Rules: We will only use tier1-3 maps so anyone can join and have fun The first tournament is all about fun, not being fucking serious. We can do like a really tryhard tournament later on. In the first place, this tournament is some kind of a testrun. Anyone is allowed as long as he is a member of the f-o-g community. This includes being registered in the forums, enters the tournament via the forum thread and is surfing on the f-o-g servers for like 1 day (playtime). The last rule is debateable but I don't want some KSF top #16 just joining real quick and fucking us all over for the prices. Not to be a dick, but the first tournament seriously should be more funbased than skillbased. Everyone needs to be ready when his match comes up. With ~63 matchups on one day, we can't really accept any bigger delay I would stream the whole thing additionally on twitch to gain some attention. I'd be using some F-o-G graphics to promote the community and also the server. Might as well make a gif showing the IP's from time to time. Twitch channel would be: http://www.twitch.tv/montyyy_ Soooo, what do we need though? The Okay from n0name Prices for the top #3 - Maybe VIP status? I would also put some money in for the price pool. A good mix of tier1-3 maps (let's say atleast 15-20 maps) Advertisement - alot of it! Including graphics which might be shown on the servers, on the forums and also on twitch streams. (I could do these graphics, no problem) Server set up especially for this tourney. Or just make the t1-6 server restricted for that one day referees and judges - especially admins would be needed here a bracket / tourney system but there should be a good CMS / freeware for that This thread should be used to find more ideas, discuss ideas and somewhat form the tournament after the users needs and wishes. Discuss, help us out here, give constructive ideas, that'd be awesome! We wanna do this, because we like the fog servers and the people we got to know through these servers. So in the first place, it's to advertise our awesome community and gain attention. TLDR Surf comptetition on the fog servers with prices, being streamed on twitch and also cut for the upcoming youtube channel. I / We need your ideas and feedback bois! Please answer the poll so we can see if people are actually interested in something like that (eventhough I only got positive feedback on steam til now) Thanks in advance!
