Back in the mid 90’s I used to participate in Doom2 tournaments. Scorched seems to run them differently so i’d like to give my opinion on what I think could be a fun tournament based on what i’ve experienced.
Doom2 used to do 1 on 1 eliminations. I realize Scorched is a different game, and in all fairness, 1 on 1 is not an option. However, we can achieve the same kind of thrill with an altered method.
Now this is an example. Lets say 24 people join.
You seperate them into two groups of 12 and 12.
You set a specific date and time each group plays.
The top 6 in each group advances to the next game.
The final 12 play the 2nd and last game.
Scoring. The winner of each game is awarded +1
Second place is given -2, 3rd is -3 and so on.
The combined negative scores of both games determines the winner.
Kills mean nothing, round wins mean nothing, just place.
Winning a round should give you ZERO money.
Zero money for lives as well.
For example. Brain Damage wins one group getting +1
He then places 7th in the final group match giving him a total of -6
Of course that is just an example. There are of course many different ways to edit. Any interest?
Could be fun, one downside to doing emilination style like you suggest is that map placement is quite important. A few bad map placements can sink it for you.
Otherwise, I would love it. Unfortunately, i can rarely ever plan for a single hour of free time. Sometimes on the road I can at hotels for late at night, but even then can be tricky with wife calling me.
Sounds like a fun idea to me. Set it up and I’ll come and play.
Remember guys, I started playing this online last October or November, I can’t remember which. So I have no idea of what to do to get something like this started. If someone can point me in the right direction, i’d be happy to. 😉
