Free* Coins - Discussion Thread: 1/13/2016 16:11:10

I am proposing a series of coin tournaments.

This thread is to discuss options on how to enact that series.

Please don't troll this thread!


Overview:

A series of small tournaments that qualify you for the large prize tournament.

Small Tournaments
-About 5000 coins in prizes
-About 6-8 small tournaments, each one having different settings and coin options.
-Each tournament will have about 100-200 coin prizes.
-Some will have a nominal entry fee and additional rewards supplemented by me.
-Some will have no entry fee with all rewards paid by me.
-Some will be single elim, double elim, round robin, team, solo, FFA, private invite, open to public, etc.
-Some rewards will be subscription memberships.

Big Tournament:

-About 10,000 in prizes
Using the performance results of small tournaments, I'll make a big tournament with a bigger prize. What I mean is that you get points for your participation in the small tournaments, which will enable the top performers from the small tournaments to participate in the big tournament.


Misc:

-I may put a cap on entry to ~3 of the small tournaments.
-There may be a prerequisite to enter a number of small tournaments that have an upfront coin payment required. (Meaning that of the three tournaments you choose to join, you'll need to pony up a set number of coins to enter. Such that you can't just cherry pick 3 free tournaments to be a candidate for the Big Tournament)
-I'll post a schedule of tournaments so you know which ones you want to participate in up front.

Requests:
-If you have an idea for a small tournament, please let me know (mail or reply to this thread).
-Ideas should include a template, a tournament format (see the create tournament link).

Going Forward:
-Once I get a sufficient number of suggestions for the small tournaments, I'll publish the top picks and put them up to a vote.
-Then, we'll get them formalized and set a schedule.



Thanks in advance for your feedback.
Of course, all of this is subject to change.

I believe coin tournaments cannot be private.

Otherwise this looks like a cool idea!

He could do a private invite tournament and make a 1v1 coingame with the winner if he has coins though. not the best solution, but a workaround for some cases, if needed.

He can also make level 100 as prereq and disable 'forward invites' effectively making it private

Some will have a nominal entry fee and additional rewards supplemented by me.

but that's not possible - you can meke entry free, with whole prize funded by creator or you can set entry fee, but you can't increase prize with your coins in such case.

@krzy,
I'm looking for solutions, not problems. :)
Solution: Entry fee of X coins, supplemental reward: 1st prize 2 months membership, 2nd prize 1 months membership.
Alternate Solution: See Timinator's comments regarding me throwing a 1v1 coin game.
Yet another alternate solution: Send a PM to fizzer asking if this is an option to make a hybrid of those two where players can pony up coins and I supplement.

@beren,
The private games give me flexibility to create games how I want them created. It takes it a bit out of the straight-up coin game pure-luck format, but hey, a guys gotta do what a guys gotta do.

@muddle,
No.
First rule, no trolling.
This implies that you would read the thread before asking silly questions that derail the thread from its purpose: To discuss options for the series and get recommendations. If you would have continued to read, you would find out that there would be a schedule posted, yo ucan decide what you want to do about joining. Simply put, the details are not there yet.

@all:
The purpose is to 1) provide support for Fizzer for all of his hard work.
I'm trying to set up some sort of matching contribution thing, where I put up $150-$200 of my own cash, and the users each put up ~$5-10 of their own cash to have an option to win. Sorta like the Powerball, with the exception of I'm supplementing 1/2 of the prize with my own money and Fizzer gets the profit, not "education".

Interesting idea has lots of potential. I think a way for players to transfer coins to each other would be a good idea (maybe Fizzer can tax it?)

Don't have any suggestions for this tournament system but if I have any I'll be sure to let you know.

Very cool idea!

I suggest the tic tac toe template for fast and funny games.

I prefer double elimination on it, cause you can easily lose a game because of a wrong prediction.

Edit: damn... i think it can't be used on pure skill. So it must be one of the private tournaments if you like it.

Black sea 2v2! Though if its for coins you will need to get rid of WR.

I made a list with templates. I didn't see a good commander template yet and the 0 armies standing setting is highly unstrategic.
