TSC League!~
« on: January 26, 2009, 05:23:11 PM »
The league will begin at 23:59 on Friday GMT, Round 1 will end at 23:59 on Friday GMT a week later. The levels will be posted at this time, although I may post teaser info to keep you guys guessing 24 hours in advance~

Also, if you have not signed up yet, have no fear! You are welcome to still submit for round 1 and I wil include you in the rankings at the end. Relatedly, late submissions will not be counted. If you are going to miss an entire week for some reason, notify me in advance and we'll work something out. Other acceptable excuses include TSC being down at the end of a round, because I know that plenty of people get last minute stats.

So, judging from the response to Marathon 2 it's pretty clear that people didn't really want to devote 3 hours of their time again to playing S1, S2 and S3&K in a row again, so, I figured I'd make a post about a league that would run for maybe 7/8 weeks or so and would require considerably less time investment while still remaining fun and competitive for all involved!

The format!

For the first half of the tournament (the long half), it will be in league format. This part of the tourny will last for 4 or 5 weeks (probably 5) and consist of as many rounds as it does weeks:

Each week, I will post 5 levels from S1, S2, and S3&K which range in difficulty to TA from easy to hard (Absolutely bonkers strats notwithstanding). These could be anything, the only things not included are S2K, and Tails' from S3&K (Valid reasons can be provided for this decision if anyone cares).

It is then the goal of all players in the league to TA the 5 levels posted for the week and PM me their best runs in .giz format, where I will then calculate the winners for each act and the round and award points.

Playoffs!

After 4 or 5 rounds pass,  roughly the top half of the league will be seeded and ordered into an elimination style bracket. Each play-off round will consist of one level and will last for 3 days.

Scoring!

Me and mike need to work out an appropriate scoring system (hi mike!), however, I'd like to point out in advance that I don't intend for the scoring system to ever award a player 0 points for a submission. 0 will be reserved for people who do not submit a time for a given level.

Rules!

Sonic alone. (Or Knux if its a Knux level)
In S3K, for example if you had to play Icecap 2 - Sonic, you would start from Act 2 via level select. You are not permitted to bring shields or otherwise set up crazy tricks via act 1.
Use S3K. S3 and S&K alone are disallowed.
Bonus stages and dieing are completely fair game.
Super forms am b&

If anyone has any questions related to this I'd be happy to answer them

ALSO THERE WILL BE PRIZES OK

Man I want those tourneys back :( Though admittedly it'd be pretty hard to come up with another set of that many challenges.

I'm in for this because RPG made it so.

I'm curious about the reasons for S2K and S3K(T) being left out.

If that is indeed the case, count me out...

good luck to the trinity, should all three compete!

There is not enough variety between S2K and regular S2 to really merit its inclusion. Tails is exluded because including him would put too much weight on S3K.

Koshi isn't in.

Also, it requires a different skill to use knuckles or tails. Why not include them even if the differences are subtle?

I think the concern is more with "ok this shifts the balance of levels way too far towards S3&K" than with the different skills required to play as Tails or Knuckles.
