Tournament 1/2: More testing (Winner: SBW)
« on: August 21, 2007, 10:40:36 AM »
Quote from: yse
What I'll need:
* Volunteers from each existing subsite to run tournaments in their area of expertise

So, um, yeah. MK and RPG aren't making any moves on TUSC's behalf, so I'm picking up the slack again. Despite the fact that TUSC's probably gonna be deleted due to lack of interest on the part of TSCers, I'm trying anyway. I'm basically looking for eight people who aren't total 2D Sonic gods who think they might compete against other amateurs, knowing that there likely won't be total blowouts of n00b vs. pro. 2D's the basis yet again, as with yse's tournament, but seeing as this is a "TUSC" tournament I'll be throwing in some unofficial mods because any moron can memorize the official release's layouts after a while. Also, it won't all entirely be based on playing the games with in-game restrictions such as "get this many rings in this much time"; I've got some different ideas that will hopefully keep things interesting. I'll give more details when I see some interest.

Oh, and I will be doing eliminations k >_>, as people who fall too far behind in the standings tend to get bitchy. :P

Agan, so, um, yeah, volunteers plz.

I... dunno. The only 2D Sonic game I'm good at is CD.
And I know Sonic 1 a bit. But I'm not really good at it.

IF THERE'S A LOT OF SONIC 2 AND 3 AND KNUCKLES, I WON'T ENTER. D:

What we have here is a failure to communicate. yse = official games, Thorn = unofficial. You know, like the website titles that we admin respectively.

Bitchin', eight people! If you're on this list, you've posted here. Speak within the next few hours if you're welching, or forever hold your peace.

RPG
Achlys
genus
PPA
Paragod
Spinny
JBertolli
Groudon

I'll go into the tourney format a little bit. Understand that many things are still in the planning stage, becuase I was expecting it to take much more time to garner interest.
The tourney will be largely formatted like yse's, only that I will be eliminating some of you early on (NOT every round, no worries just yet), and you won't have a week for the challenge. So as with mike's I'll start by giving a tiny bit of detail on the tasks, only I WON'T reveal the actual task until the groups decide what they want, and they're ready to do the actual competing. It's first-come-first-serve, rather than everybody coming to an accord on challenges with other groups. This should stop people from crooning over their best games. I'm gonna make this thing short and sweet, so pairs of competitors will have to meet me in chat, tell me they are ready, and THEN I'll give the challenge and the time frame you have to complete it (between an hour and a day, most likely). Both players will submit at the same time, so this'll allow posting the file in this topic rather than private e-mailing.

There's a chance that I might be on my desktop later on tonight (three hours or so from now) and able to upload the files needed for each person's challenge. If so, then some of you might get started soon. For now, here's the skinny on the first challenge.

Pairs'll be RPG/Groudon, Achlys/JBertolli, genus/Spinny, and PPA/Paragod. This challenge'll put you all on some of the fastest courses I've seen in Sonic games. The first choice will be the most familiar to all of you, but the rest might not be so familiar. You'll simply have to TA the required levels, and best time wins. All challenge options have a time frame of one hour from the time I give you the go-ahead. Here are your choices:

1. This TA takes place on a level I'm sure you've seen before many, many times. RPG MSN'd me about a minute after the challenge rules went up saying he and Groudon came to an accord on 1.
2. This TA is possibly the fastest level of the four options. Chosen by genus and Spinny.
3. This TA is a bit emo but fun nevertheless. Reserved for JB and Achlys.
4. This TA is a result of shameless plugging on my behalf. Process of elimination, Paragod and PPA are doing this.

Pairs should decide what sounds most appealing to them quickly lest another pair get it first. If you decide on your task while I'm not in chat, PM it to me and specify a backup in case you're not the first PM. Again, I'll upload the necessary files ASAP for everybody.
