[Sep 22, 2012] UCI SWISS Monthly #2 Presented by Fighting Gamers @UCI (Irvine, CA)


Our second monthly tournament. Apologies for not getting this up sooner. I wanted to do signups first and then design a schedule to reflect number of entrants. I dropped the ball on this by forgetting about it and being caught up on Guild Wars 2. As of now, the schedule is tentative. If we don’t have enough signups, obviously a game may not be played. We also may finish sooner than expected.

For those that are unfamiliar with Swiss format, it works like a round robin, except you’re kept within a defining
skill level, similar to a danisan.
Example: Everyone (32 people)will be paired up first round, making for 16 matches. 16 people will go 1-0 and 16 people will got 0-1. In the 2nd round, the 16 people who went 1-0 will be paired up and the 16 people who went 0-1 will be paired up for matches. When finished, there will be 8 people 2-0, 16 people 1-1, and 8 people 0-2. 3rd round will pair up those with the same score again, and this will be continued till rounds 4-6 (depending on number of entrants). I’m removing the Top 4/8 single elim after the swiss. Its a tad too redundant, especially when some goes 4-0. They don’t need to prove 1st place again. We will impliment this if we have a lot of entrants in one game (ie: Marvel). If there is a tie for 2nd place however, we will hold a match to determine 2nd and 3rd.
We find that this lets people play others at their level and also maximizes the play time you get for how much you spend. Instead of going 0-2 and out, you get to just as many games as anyone else, regardless of your score.

Since this is mainly a test tourney for us, venue fee is $2 and it’ll be $5 entry for each game, which will go to the pot for respective game. Your venue fee can be waived if you provide a full setup (system and monitor, preferably Asus). If you are willing to provide a setup, then you understand that FG@UCI will need to borrow your setup all day. You don’t have to be there all day if you don’t want to enter all games. If you’d like to provide one, please message me (Darryl) and we’ll discuss details. There is a limit to how many people can get their venue fee waived though, so first come first served.

There will be a maximum amount of entrants per game, so if you are interested in playing in a particular game, please make sure to sign up. Below is the schedule of games to run, their allotted time slots, and the signup list with capacity.
