Hi doomers, I've been wondering what to start up next as for a tournament. I've been thinking about TDM and CTF as of now, but I would see to other options if recommended. I'll like to know what to host so that I could start right away.
Note: I just wrote it on under USA Tournaments since I'm from America and I've been seeing under this section it's been actively a bit. All players are welcomed to post/vote their opinion.
Note2: Forgot to mention poll will be closed by sunday

I would actually like to see a Survival Partner (2v2) Tournament!

I'll go ahead and lay down some ideas:

*You pick out the survival wad to be played (chillax seems to be pretty good for this)
*Two players will partner up during the whole tournament
*This will be done in a knock-out bracket style
*Each week/round a different map shall be played
*Winner can be decided as to perhaps who finishes the map the fastest ? or have both teams play at the same time and give the win on who gets most damage ?

Those are some ideas I have but a survival tournament would be where I would go! Haven't seen one yet and I think this would bring in plenty of attention not just from the competetive scene Wink

Plus the one ran by Dannyboy 2 years back on Hans Monument.

The one ran by Gyross had ended well, so yeah, I have no doubt of the success that a future Tdm tourney would have.

Bump 2:
Alright I got a tie breaker vote coming in soon, and afterwards, I'll post the decided tournament on a new post/thread.

Edit:
Tdm - 3 ; CTF - 3 ; Survival - 4 ; IDC any - 0

Edit 2:
Survival Tourney coming soon.

Well yeah I remember competing in that Survival tournament Chronique was talking about, it was reasonably successful.

The whole 2 vs 2 format is pretty workable overall. Just pick a map. map32 Plutonia was used before. You could also run dv.wad

Choosing a partner is a tricky business because you need to select someone whose skills you can appreciate and allow that person to shine when they need to and support when necessary. In the past my partners have been The Ultimate Doomer and [UD]Earthquake.

Hi Alpha,

As you asked me last night I think a Survival Tourney would be the way to go. Reasons are:

Doesn't have to be regional as players can play Euro/USA/Anywhere aslong as servers were set up correctly and approved by admins.

Teams of 2 only commits 2 people to a match where as TDM is at least 4 and CTF 6. Should mean games can be played quicker and help with scheduling.

Everything that Bless has said.

Agreed, although again, you can always make this interesting and just sign people up and randomize the teams.
If 6 teams were to be chosen then you will only need 12 people. I believe you could even go for an 8 team Survival Tournament.
I would join it, no matter how partners were selected. Not to mention that in this kind of tournament the high ping and lag won't be much of a problem as we are killing monsters!

You know where to go alpha_, stop contemplating about how good I look Rolling Eyes
