Hi! We are in the final stages of the SRK forum migration. Soon, we will lock the forums so we can transfer over all the discussion threads. Please expect a downtime of a few days while we implement the migration. Thx for your patience.

    Insomnia isn't the one who said 'No, I do not wish to play and withdraw'

    Fuck you.

    You try playing while you're barely able to stay awake and have a growing headache, all because of something THAT I HAVE NO FUCKING CONTROL OVER!!!

    So don't even start, shithead.

    here are my suggestions for the settlers tournament

    what i have so far is prone to being infinitely drawn out, so that's the main problem i have with it right now

    Let's have stages: A, B, C, D.
    Player1 has A, Player2 has B, Player3 has C, Player4 has D
    Player1 and Player2 are matched up in the first round. P3 and P4 are matched up in the first round.

    P1 and P2 player their match. They can choose to pick A or B, and the game decides which they play on.
    If a player wins on their own stage, that stage is "defended" and cannot be chosen in the next round.
    If a player loses on their own stage, that stage is "lost" and cannot be chosen in the next round. It now belongs to the winning player.

    The loser is the one who runs out of stages.
    When moving to the next round, the winner can only pick one stage to add to their list of stages.

    Let's say P1 won and now has A and B, and P3 won and now has C and D.

    They play. P1 chooses C and P3 chooses A.
    P1 wins on C, and now has A,B,C.
    P3 chooses A again, and P1 chooses D. P3 wins on D. Now P1 cannot choose a stage that belongs to P3 for one round, and must choose one of its own stages to defend. P3 can choose any stage to attack.

    etc. You can see how this could go on a long time, so I suggest 2 stock or even 1 stock.

    Yeah that's not gonna work.

    I suggest a coin-flip to decide first stage, then standard counterpick rules from there(save for the fact that you have a "homestage" that you're locked to).

    Simple and to the point.

    And no to fucking 2-stock... Damn.

    I don't think I really like that phnts.

    While this kind of scenario did cross my mind, as you said, it would draw the tournament out for far too long, as well as complicate things a bit.

    As it stands, you will only inherit a stage after the elimination of an opponent. The match is still best 3 of 5, so there should be plenty of time for one to beat the other

    2 stock 3/5 is completely fine po. It ranges from 6 to 8 stocks needing to be taken by the winner - 3 stock 2/3 is also 6-8.

    That's fine too CG. Both players pick one of their stages g1, then play on one of the loser's stages from there on out?
    I think players should be allowed 2 characters if this is the case, and blind pick them every game as well.

    i'd honestly rather have the next tournament to have 2 stock matches. the games feel less drawn out. brawl should've done this as well.

    Sounds like a cool idea, although I won't be able to play. How close are we to being able to stream?
