With Amloo, we recently started talking about the organization of a Beginners tournament on Robostrike.
The main goal is to concentrate new players connexions between 6 and 8pm to let them know eachother.

The main ideas we discussed so far are:

  • send an email to the 640 players registered since one year asking them to come on RS everyday between 6 and 8pm and register to the beginners tournament (def text to be done if any want to help)
  • create a translated forum topic to register to the tournament, explaining the rules and see daily results (to be done too) with a link on the homepage and a daily updated news
  • the email would be sent on a wednesday for registering and starting the tournament on next saturday then 1 turn per day.
  • the tournament stats would include scored game stats to be sure we trace all results
  • each turn of the tournament would be played on a pre-defined board per day. Ex turn/day 1 = Blitz, turn/day 2 = Flower, etc ... (board list still to be defined, good looking and easy enough for beginners)
  • in order to have as many played games as possible, we would use a double elimination system ex 2e4p or 2e8p or 2e12p or 2e16p : http://www.tournamentdesign.org/
  • depending on the number of registered players we will try to build teams of 2 or 3 players to help them to know eachother, if not enough registered players there will be "single player" teams
  • each turns would be played in 2 winning death match sets within the same day: the winner of the DM makes his team win, with 2 sets won the team (or single player if no team) wins the turn.
  • the rewards for the tournament would be points: ex +200 points for each of the members of the winner team, then +100 for the 2nd, etc ...

If all this can work we'll do it more often and invite all RS old registered players by year.

Please don't hesitate to comment here if any suggestion.
You can also apply in this topic if you like to help to organize this tournament during the next weeks.

Thanks
The RS team
