Hey guys. I'm going to try running something different that the usual league events we have here. So far, most of our tournaments and leagues have been spaced out to give players enough time to schedule matches with their opponents to battle. Well for those who have more free time and want to get more battles in, how about in addition to this, we periodically have mini, fast-paced tournaments that take place over the course of a weekend? Well that is what I'm proposing here.
This is what I'm thinking. In the interest of ensuring that this tournament doesn't get the chance to drag on, it will cap out at 8 people. I will take the first eight to signup, but anyone after that will be put on a waiting list in case someone has to back out or doesn't show up. Also, if you're on the waiting list and don't get in on this tournament, you will have a reserved spot in the next ION Rumble if you so choose. That way, everyone that is interested can partake in this, even if it's not every week.
The tournament will be single elimination, and each matchup will be decided by just one battle (no best 2 out of 3). As of right now I don't have any specific deadlines for each stage of the tournament, but I reserve the right to eliminate players or award byes to anyone who is unable to get their matches in on a timely manner. That way, things can move along at a decent pace.
I will be running one of these mini-tournaments this weekend, taking signups between now and Thursday night. On Friday morning I will form a tournament bracket, and players can have their battles at their own pace, with the goal in having the tournament finish by Sunday evening. If this is successful, I would like to run one of these every 1-2 weeks with varying themes. But for this tournament, standard ION rules will apply, and they will be conducted in singles format.
