How about instead of just a WC vs EC CvS2, we make use of the BYOC area, and set up a side tournament: team regionals.
3 people per region allowed, 7 regions + Japan. Thats make an 8 team tournament, preferablly round robin.
Each team puts down $10 a head ($30 per team)
best record takes %50 of cash ($120)
second takes %30 of cash ($72)
third takes %20 of cash ($48)
Main problem is that with 28 team battles, with 6 matches per battle, that gets up to 168 actual matches. At 5 minute per match, on one console, thats a 14 hour tournament… it’d have to be done with 4 consoles, so every team is playing somebody else all at the same time (I.e. console 1: Pacific South vs Southwest, Console 2: Japan vs EC, console 3: atlantic south vs northwest, console 4: Atlantic North vs Midwest), rotating after every battle.
Then it’s a 3.5 hour tournament, much more managable.
I would be up for running it/help running it, as long as we can get enough people interested (and enough people willing to help run it).
