official bracket those would be held a day before
4) there would be a time limit of when u had to have ur match played.
5) if someone doesnt show and doesnt post in the thread, the person who did post advances

11) Please check in in this thread on tournament day so i know you were waiting for your opponent otherwise you both will be dq'ed

seeding would be based off the tournament zerotypex is currently hosting.
and the rest would be random draw
, if not it will be random draw

a few questions
1) what application do u guys use to generate brackets?
2) anyone willing to donate prizes?
3) what chat room site should we use?

the reason i opted for a 2 day tourney is just for convenience for CAGers, since i know random crap turns up daily

any ideas or suggestions?


i also opted for once a month so its a big deal each month and CAGs can train/practice to improve.
Tourney Name would be the CAG SFIV Monthly Classic Tournament #1 , just for kicks.

any help is greatly appreciated :)

Suggestions from my end.

We should use the standard of 2/3 rounds. Maybe do 2/3 matches instead of one. It should also be default of 99 seconds.

Also, single elim is fine, but what about double elim for future events as well?

Lol whoops typo, yeah 99 seconds

why opt for best 2 outta 3 instead of 3 outta 5?

ive only taken part in single elim, how does double work?

nothing is finalized yet, most likely everything will be by the 20th.

im trying to keep it as simple as possible as its the first tourney, look at the other tourney thats already jacked up.

people donno who theyre playing next and all that junk.

are there sites to manage brackets so folks can see it live instead of me using excel or something and having to update constantly? lol

2/3 is the standard for Street Fighter.

Single vs double = double gives each player two chances throughout the tournament. Essentially if you lose, you go to the loser's bracket and can work your way up from there back to the finals.

If you want a program to show you the difference between both tournament styles, check this out:

my first suggestion would be to let markman have complete creative control over the event and rules.

My second suggestion would be to have a 1st post that is big and clear and clean and updated every day.

My third suggestion would be no ken's or blanka's allowed....i have so much trouble with them as abel damnit.

Like the idea, but it needs some heavy refinement.....

If you're looking to get legitimate results, I highly recommend doing 3 out of 5 rounds, first to 3 matches wins.

Not everyone can always connect to one another due to NAT / other internet crazy talk, so make sure you're on point in being flexible with switching opponents to ensure that everyone gets to play

Don't try to put in any silly character bans

Make a 1st post that is, well, as sleepy said, big and clear and clean and updated every day

Take a lot of input from all the players

Force people to forfeit if they are unable to play in the time period

get ready for the biggest tourney to hit CHEAPASSGAMER.
roar

now all we need is prizes and people who wanna play.

Time Limit
It will be Hopefully a Four Hour Span on Day One.
so First Round for example would be from 6PM-8PM, then whoever doesnt report is DQ'd and whoever did advances
Second Round for example would be from 8PM-10PM, then whoever doesnt report is DQ'd

Next day would run smoother since its only Eight people.
this would be in a 2 Hour window.
Elite Eight would be say from 6-645, Final Four would be say 645-715, Finals would be 715-745
thats enough time to take a bathroom break and eat between your matches or play another game all together!!!!!

make the matches best of 3 rounds plz!! I hate best of 5!

also since you plan on doing this often, I would say make the tournaments short, single match, single elim a la japanese style.

the standard that MM talked about, best of two matches and double elim, is American style. I donno, I like JPN style since it means u cannot slack, u always gotta be on point and be prepared for anything.

lastly, since u do plan on making this a regular thing... we need RANKINGS! Figure out a point system that we get to see who's the best. Like, 1st place gets 4 points, 4th place gets 1 point, and in between gets accordingly.

hey jekki as for RANKINGs/Seedings we cannot really determine that yet.
well i kinda wanted to use the other tourney for seedings but that doesnt look like itll happen.

if i could just get a broad idea of top 8 SF4 players on CAG just so i dont put hypothetically #1 vs #2 against each other in rd 1.

early tourneys are hard because people will bitch about seedings and first round matchups but whatever thats why its a monthly thing.

after this tournament itll be seeded in order of the final 8, whoever is on the final 8 gets pts. then everyone else gets nothing.
that way each month people have something to work for ie getting into the top 8.

I'm in favor of 3 rounds, best 2 of 3 matches, single elimination. Although, I don't mind double elimination if that was put through.

That reminds me, I need to make sure my NAT type is set to open.

One suggestion I have is to have best 2 out of 3 for all the matches until the semifinals/winners and losers brackets finals depending on if it's a single or double elimination style tourney. In the semifinals/winners and losers brackets finals have a best 3 out of 5. A best 5 out of 7 for the finals for a single elimination tournament and both sets of the winners of the winners and losers brackets if need be for a double elimination tournament.

im opting against double elmination because it would make things HELLA hard to manage with having to admin for TWO brackets and making a bracket on the go with the losers or whatever.

like loser goes to x or wahtever not sure how double elim works, but i think for now single elim will work.
