    One thing that comes to mind that I always wanted to do with the old TAO was a best of 3 tournament. First game style is veto based, second game is chosen by the loser, if there is a third game it is chosen by the loser of the second game.

    E.g.
    Freestyle no drops, grey no drops, turtle no drops, legends grey, legends freestyle(drops).
    Matt vs Wizzy
    I veto legends grey and legends freestyle, Wizzy vetos turtle and freestyle.
    Game 1 is grey no drops. Wizzy wins.
    Game 2 I choose turtle. I win
    Game 3 wizzy chooses legends grey. Wizzy wins.

    This is probably way to involved for a small tournament to get people excited about the game again, but wanted to throw it out there.

    Seems like a standard no drop freestyle, grey, or turtle game would be best, but I am generally open to w/e


    I figured we'd utilize the game styles on BR's game. Legends Gray, FPS Dropless Gray/Single gold(Legends) freestyle

    Best of 3 using the 3 styles would be cool IMO.

    the only thing I'm against is using multiple units you only get in drops in gray games tbh. people will go overboard

    Furthermore, we also can't do regular turtle since there is only 1 scout.
    Good points.

    We could set up a way to let people impose a time limit through chat and screenshots, or we could just let the tournament stretched out a bit more with a rule to make moves once a day. I think it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect people are online together when they play, but if someone needs to get going they can set up another time to finish up the game, and give everyone a week total to finish the game.

    For regular turtle/freestyle I was thinking about it in terms of drops and no drops.

    Actually I really like setting a 1 week time limit with extension opportunities for people that show they are making the time. I think this could be a great way to utilize and test out how effective a tournament could be now that you can "pause" a game and come back to it.

    Extensions might be provided if people actually set up times when both people can get online to play, and both people show up to play, but for whatever reason time constraints didn't let them finish by the end of the week.
    In contrast if one person tried to set up times to play, and the other player were to just make a move randomly once a day or something, we could look at that and say "you didn't really make an attempt here".

    There are definitely some "problems" with this format...like people in a tough spot spending 2 days tryharding so they can come up with the perfect move. But I think part of this tournament could be an opportunity to try out the different features provided by BRs game engine. It's also meant to be fun, so we can be a bit more relaxed about theorizing the perfect most fair tournament in the world.

    Can we move this to one of the boards like the new game one or something if its linked to forums so people without forum accounts can view it? Like maybe not this thread, but a actual tournament thread?

    Sounds good to me, one week for those who are moving forward with their games slowly. I like that idea.

    I think Kash is more talking about if you're in the middle of the game, the person can just disappear and you have no idea if they're coming back that day and then you have to set up more times and it becomes confusing.

    Best of 3 was already imo gonna take a long time and people would lose interest eventually. Adding a 1 week extension to single games is crazy. Maybe if we're doing only 1 style and 1 game each round then that's fine to have a 1 week time limit (with possible extensions) to get your game finished


    Or just a 1 week time limit to finish all 3 games if we're doing 3 different styles or best of 3.

    Or if we do a best of 3, use a 1 week time limit to finish each game. If the first game isn't finished within a week because one of the 2 people isn't making an effort, they lose that week. and so on. idk. i've never run a tournament before and have no idea what i'm really talking about. just kind of excited to play.
