10 dollars for a single elimination single match tourney won’t fly.

That’s not even getting to the 70% collected prize pool thing.


#3

Format:
Single Elimination
Each match will be to best of 3 rounds (Final will be best of 5 rounds)
Each set will be best of 5 matches

2/3 rounds, 3/5 sets? :wtf:

That’s … an odd format.


#4

finally a markham one! im most likely reaching this.


#5

I tried to get it changed from single elim to double elim for the longest time but the best I could do was up the sets to 5 instead of 3. The entry fee was also originally $5.

Whats so bad about 70%? Their only taking a cut of 30% where most places do $5 venue cost if your a member with a $10 entry which is 33% and if your not a member it becomes like $15 for venue and it then becomes a cut of 60%. It seemed fair to me at the time for a place’s first tournament.

If people are really vocal about doing double elim and enough people post here to warrant the change, I’ll talk to them again if they can slightly up venue to accommodate double elim. The goal with this tournament is to see if we have enough players to run these monthly and then they will be double elim and SSF4.

PS - I’m just a liaison and a Heroes World regular.


#6

I can guarantee about everyone posting in this thread will prefer a double elimination over a single format. If it’s a matter of time that’s one thing but If there’s even an option to make it double elimination then try and push for it.


#7

+1

double elimination please


#8

You gotta understand that the player base in Toronto and the surrounding areas is very spread apart. With the single elimination format, you will have some people travelling 40 minutes to an hour only to get knocked out in the first round cough teddy, rebelo, gettycough.


#9

Yeah, I’d only make the trip if the tournament format was switched to double elimination, especially considering it’s a $10 entry fee.


#10

Ok, if I ask to change it to standard double elim how much more do you guys wanna up venue and entry fee to be fair?


#11

last tourney i went to had double elim at $5 for 70/20/10

of course the place was bleh so they didn’t charge a venue fee. it was advertised, but never enforced.

$10 for double elim is fair.

you may as well have said $5 entry and $5 venue fee and just kept all the venue fees, so that the pot can be advertised as fully for winners.


#12

co-sign tofu warrior

i’m guaranteed to come if you fix that format soon


#13

Thanks for the feedback. We are now in the process with talking with the managers to change the format. Also, we have 4 televisions so far do you think that will be enough?


#14

70% of $10 goes to pot > 100% of $5 to pot


#15

I don’t know if I can make it to this tournament but I’d be down for upcoming tournaments/ranbats. And the controllers provided would be TEs?


#16

This.

Switch it up and you’ll probably double the size of your shin dig.

I’m in for having monthlies at Heroes World (I live at McCowan/Steeles), but $10 for single elim… that’s even more steep than having your own tourney at Pac Mall (shitty set up…) and Lovegetty (I prefer this set up - but I don’t go there either lol). However, the benefit of having a proper location is that you get casuals and unlimited play (so to speak).

You can tell John/Andre/who is giving this plan the green light that double elimination will be a better format. If people can go in there for WarHammer/MtG/YGO/Pokemon (do they even have to pay?), then I’m sure having regular (S)SF4 tournies there will work too. The only shame is that you can’t really get anywhere in York Region without a car - Walking a block takes forever (compared to walking a block downtown lol).

This is the same number at the GTA tourney in January. I felt it was adequate enough to get the tourney going. It was just the venue that was a bit constricting when trying to get around. lol


#18

bad tourney format plus 50% 1st place… thats worse then DNB tourney
id rather just host a getty tourney the same day with a double elim 70% 1st place pot


#19

iuno if its just me but i would rather pay $20 dollars for a double elimination 70/10/5 % …70 percent of 10 dollars x 10 = 70 bucks…up the anty? again this is imo


#20

what?
