Default Create Your Own Tournament - Format

What kind of format would you like to be used in the next tournament?

Bracket - This is the style you are probably most familiar with. Players are randomly paired to play each other. The winners of each pair move on to the next round, in which they are paired again. This continues until a winner is decided. Double elimination is possible.

Ladder - Players can challenge any other player in the tournament. Challenges can't be denied. Winning results in more points than losing. Winning against a player with more points may also giving you more points than compared to someone with less points. The number of times you can challenge a single player in a certain amount of time will be limited. Whoever has the most points in a set amount of time is the winner of the whole tournament.

Combination - The top x amount of players in the end of a Ladder will be seeded into a Bracket.

The finer details of each kind of format can be worked out later.

What about a cool, gatherer style tournament?

Everyone is given a single star. To make it to the next stage, you need a total of five stars. To earn more stars, you wager them in Pokemon battles. If you win, you win the opponent's wager. Similarly, if you lose the battle, you lose your wager.

There is a time limit, so anyone who doesn't have five stars is automatically eliminated from advancing to the next stage when the time is up.

That's because it's so awesome.

Now all we need is a 3D projection system that fits on your arm...


I do think this would be fun in all honesty. And the more people who participate, the better.

This idea was actually used before and it worked really well.

Chris or Marth made the Duelist Island Tournament or something along those lines :s

Boom ba-da-bing!

Wow, almost 3 years ago now. Freaky... o.o

But yeah, something like Marth did would be really cool, just without the silly cards...

I just had the dumbest but interesting idea for an ffa or something!

Quote:
Chess Board FFA Tournament
__________
|8 Pawns .|
|2 rooks ..|
|2 knights.|
|2 bishops.|
|1 queen..|
|1 king.....|
^2 sets of those

Its a standard game of chess with a URPG twist ;D

Pawns: These only move forward (1-2 spaces)*
Rooks: These only move horizontal or vertical (unlimited spaces)
Knights: These move in that L-shaped pattern (a total of 4 spaces)
Bishops: These only move diagonally (unlimited spaces)
Queen: The most powerful piece in the game can basically move wherever there is space!
King: He's kinda "Derp" all the time and needs to be protected although he is allowed to move one space and can on occasion fight for his life.

The twists

Unlike traditional chess where you simply move and conquer, you must battle the person you plan on defeating. Additionally you can have other team mates come in to your aid.

*Pawns: Instead of blocking each other to a stand still, you can defeat the person in front of you to knock them out. This can only occur when there are no opposing pieces in a vertical direction.(You MUST attack those IF there are any)
Also, if any pawns make it to the opposite line (and are unchallenged to battle) they have the option of becoming rooks, knights, bishops, or queens.


Rules:

1. Your piece can only move as it would in the traditional game. The exception here are the pawns which can knock each other off the board by also going forward.

2. When you attack, you can only attack the same way you move. So for example a bishop can not attack something that is vertical/horizontal to it and Rooks can not attack something diagonal.
Knights can only attack forward. Since they move in a weird way, thats how its gonna be....

Moves/Abilites:
1. Moves that hit all will be allowed but have their limits.
They will take up a total of 3 rows/columns/diagonal things
The first being the row/column/diagonal line that the user is on and the other two being one forward and one backward.

2. Moves that do damage but have no sort of accuracy such as swift/shockwave/magical leaf will go straight until they hit someone.

3. Moves with priority such as Quick Attack/Ice Shard/Mach Punch can go up to two spaces and can go through an ally without causing damage

4. Moves that help an ally such as helping hand/aromatherapy have to be used next to the ally and have to be in conjunction with Rule #2
Abilities that also help an ally fall under this category


5. Lightning Rod/Storm drain will redirect moves to the PKMN with said ability regardless of where on the field the move was used and regardless of whether an ally or opponent used it.


6. Roar/circle throw/whirlwind/dragontail/etc.. will knock an opponent back 3 spaces at max (unless it hits something).

7. Spikes/stealthrocks/toxic spikes can be used and will be left on the same tile as the user is on. They can hurt an ally and once they are used they disappear and have to be replaced.

8. Baton Pass works only with a mon within your attacking zone. (See battle rule #4)


This is just a rough draft of my idea!

Just a couple of things:

Pawns can only move 2 spaces if they haven't moved yet.
The queen can't move anywhere, she can only move horizontally or diagonally, just with unlimited spaces.

You forgot vertically but thats not the point.

The point is that this a new idea for an FFA or something.
If it seems reasonable to a good handful then we can start talking technical stuff ;o

So...have at it. Like/dislike/neutral and why?

Anything would be great- most likely combination. Don't reckon ladder would work that well atm though. Looked back on tournament thread and found this bracket site that Mlugia made for one of the early tournaments- think it was pretty cool at the time
