    Default The OFFICIAL Summer iOS Tournament 2013: General Discussion Thread

    This is an announcement.

    Calling all iOS summoners! The upcoming OFFICIAL Summoner Wars June iOS Tournament will be having signups May 25th! Below is a general description of the tournament. (This thread will be used for general discussion between the competitors and about the tournament. This is NOT the signup thread. Signups will not be accepted here.)

    EDIT: Sign ups are now closed. You may still sign up to be placed on the waiting list. Competitors have until the evening of Friday, May 31th to withraw if they wish.

    Basic Info

    • The tournament will be limited to 108 competitors.
    • All tournament matches must be at a 3-day per participant time limit in the app. (That means each match could end up lasting up to 6 days.)
    • Competitors will initially be split into 18 pools of 6 competitors each.
    • Each week of the tournament, each pool will play a simultaneous round robin (every member of the pool playing every other member of the pool once). That means each competitor will be playing 5 matches at a time.
    • Each round will be in the style of a Five for Fighting tournament. This means that you MUST play as 5 different factions in each pool. If a competitor fails to use 5 different factions each round, they will be disqualified.
    • At the end of the week, the top 2 competitors in each pool will move on and be reorganized into 6 pools of 6 players each, and the process will repeat for those competitors.
    • At the end of week 2, the top 2 competitors in each pool will combine for the final 2 pools.
    • At the end of week 3, the top 2 competitors for both of the final pools will participate in a 4 competitor playoff.
    • The 2 winners of the semi-final matches will go on to play a final match to be crowned the champion. Also, the losers of the semi-final matches will play for 3rd place. For these matches you may use any of the factions, but you MUST play as 2 different factions.
    • Results of each match must be reported in the Signup/Results thread (to be posted on the 25th). Try to post ALL your results for that week at the same time. This will help me greatly to keep track of everything. You may use this thread for discussion about the tournament. Please do not post anything other than signing up and results on the Signup/Results thread.
    • $100 plaidhatgames.com gift card goes to the winner!

    Great stuff, Tortugatron, and thanks for heading it up!

    And maybe ask players to not post any MU info until after a certain day of the week? That way, for those who don't get games going right away, they won't know factions their opponents have already selected.

    Sweet! Am I as the OFFICIAL Tournanent Organizer, and you as the webmaster, exempt from getting this prize if we win? Not that I will win. Or even come close. My lofty goal is to not rank 6th in my pool in round 2.
