A lot of people have been asking for a euro ctf tourney, a lot have also been saying that they want to be admin for one. At the moment with the soon to be lack of euro servers, no promises can be made that we will have one in the next month or two, hopefully when we know what servers we'll have etc we'll have a better idea of when we can do this.

Having said that, I don't think there's any reason why we can't get a few ideas and suggestions discussed beforehand, here's some of mine;

Tournament Size; Imo this should be kept to 8 teams, at least for the first one, if there are 4 players min per team, that's 32 people, which is plenty for any admin to try and handle.

Registration period; I think should be open for 2 weeks, to give people time to read the news and organise a team.

Server; should be passworded and available for team practice as soon as registration opens. The password given to each captain as soon as they register their team.

Teams; should be made up of at least 4 players (possibly 5) so you have at least one in reserve at all times in case one of your team has any kind of problem, or can't make it to a particular match, or in case one of your team disconnects or has to leave mid game (also see Reserves).

Each team should have a designated (by the team) captain, all communication with the tourney admin should by done by the captain if possible.

The teams can choose a name for their team, and each team's name with a list of players including the captain is put on a sticky seperate post to save having to scroll through to see who is in what team.

The captains contact information should be included next to their teams name on the tourney registration, with a combined best time to play (no point forming a team if you can only play at different times of day).

Tourney Dates; two weeks for registration, 1 week for each round. You don't want people to drift away or tie up a server for any longer than needed imo.

Maps; Kinda tough, I like people being able to vote, but then again if this was a semi regular event it would be good to change the maps for each one. It would also open up more ctf map packs that could be used which would please the mappers as well as testing the skills of the players and teams in a variety of conditions, so I say let the admin decide. The teams would have up to two weeks to practice the maps chosen.

Rules; these need to be pre determined, a lot can be carried over and/or adapted from the regular tourney rules, they've been formed through experience in running tourneys. It also prevents arguments forming if everyone knows where they stand beforehand.

Reserves; anyone not in a team can become part of a reserve pool of players in case a team loses a player at some point during the tourney (a month is a long time, things can happen). Imo it's up to the captain if he/she chooses a reserve or if it's a team decision, and they should ensure that that person will be available to play at the times the rest of the team can before notifying admin of the change.

Admin; I know a lot of you want to run a ctf tourney, anyone who has run any kind of tournament can tell you that it takes an awful lot of work, for the full tournament not just the registration period. So think about that before asking to run one.

I'm sure I've probably missed a few things so might add to this.

I like it. CTF maps? It depends... maybe 5 maps from pack 1 would suit as that contains the best maps imho.

There will only be two tournament admins. Humanbones will run the American tournaments, Samiam will handle the European and all others. They will work together and have final say in the format, scheduling and rules for each event.

This is not meant to discourage anyone from presenting ideas for additional tournaments. It simply means that they have the experience and resources to make sure that the tournaments will be successfull. If you've got an idea, present it to Sam or Boner.

Any tournaments that have not yet been completed will continue with the current administrator, however in the future only Sam and Boner will be allowed to create them.

I reckon 3 or 4 maps from the first two packs like last time (but not pack 3, as it won't be fully familiar to everyone).

Sure is, next month. Everything has been taken care of apart from a final decision on if it will be 3 v 3 or 4 v 4, more people seem to want a 4 v 4 so if that's the case then that's what we'll have. Maps I've been going through today, there will be 2 from the first pack and 2 from the second. People also want to choose which selection so it'll be put on a poll well before registration starts, as the server will be up for then.

People are already organising teams and captains for it, which is great as there will only be 8 teams, so it's first to sign up when it opens who will get the slots. The poll for the maps I'll hopefully get sorted this week, but everyones pretty busy atm, me included. The regular tourney registrations I'm planning on starting a day early, on the 24th, so organisation for that comes first.

i'm very sceptic about this, cause i've never seen team doom tournament running smoothly. my advice is to accept only really reliable players and keep team number low. regarding team size, 3vs3 is definitely the way to go. it's fun and it's also easier to get 6 players together than 8. i'd like to see i was wrong with my doubts, maybe you'll prove that such tournament can be done without big dqs....
