Hi all,

Welcome to the page that the 2013 Colony Tournament will be discussed at... So discuss about it. 1v1, 2v2, all ideas are welcome. Also decide the date and who's running it. If it was up to me, it will happen within the next month and a half, but its not my decision yet.

So can we agree, 1v1 Normal? No glitch! Sign-ups asap?

i think we should wait untill we know how much players we have cause a 2v2 tourney if more fun


Hate to be totally against what you just said, but 2v2 tourneys are just way too hard to organize and there is a shortage of players since the game is, what 4 years old now? I mean if you wanted a 2v2 tourney a year in, you might have had a chance, but there was one and that got shot down by no shows.

I think a 2 v. 2 would work a lot better, and I would be willing to help set the whole thing up. We should start a sign up (thread?) somewhere.

On second thought, 1v1 would work better, but either way I would help set up

No need for the extra help... Sign-up here:

http://challonge.com/colonysummertournament

It's free to sign-up, has a nice setup, and has it's own discussion page. It shows you who won each game for each group, and the winner for that group. Organizes the groups automatically.

As a side note, the tourney will be double elimination:

If you lose your first Best of 3 series, you will have a chance to continue on with other people who lost, giving people a second chance and keeping the games more interesting with similar playing abilities.

Pros will be playing pros instead of destroying the competition and the competition will have a chance to continue on playing people of their own skill instead of people who will dominate against them.

how will skill level be determined? what defines someone as a &quotro"?

I just mean the top players in the game wont kill everyones chances of winning. If it was just single elimination we would know who would go on, people like pill and MBA, and the others would be eliminated. In this style players have 2 lives in a way. They lose one they have a chance of continuing on without people like MBA and pill killing them, they will have a fair fight with someone of their own level.
