    Idea's to make a tournament work?

    First we need to find out why teams dropped out and didn't show.

    Was it communication? Some people are banned from this sight so they can't get updated info.-Solution- name a sight that everyone can go to or lift the banns.

    Some teams were outmatched. - Solution make an "A" bracket and "B" bracket. The Elite teams go to the "A". The good teams go to the "B"

    Guys - I am willing to make another tournament and put up some money. But lets get some solutions and idea's on this thread. If you are a pessimist please don't post. I'm looking for Idea's to get people to show. I'm not looking for reasons why it will never work.

    Get the few teams that actually showed up to play, and make a bracket with that.
    Let any other show-ups start out in the loser's bracket or something

      The only way it could possible work is to be flexible with the start times, however that has its problems with people who might abuse it. I was lookin forward to this as well

        I don't know. It's not like plenty of advance notice wasn't given. heck, it got pushed back a week as it is.

        Maybe a long term tournament is in order. Set up the brackets, let the opposing teams organize their own schedules and report back the results to the organizers. Just set a 30 day deadline for completion or elimination (forfiet). Folks are always setting up "Clan matches" so this shouldn't be a problem. It just won't happen in one day but this seems to be the most flexible way to go about it.

        FWIW - SMP was ready to rock the block-

          Longer term should work, but make it 3 days instead of 30, lol.

            Great Idea! Lets make it a 7 day deadline though.

                    Brackets and rosters were posted were everyone could see them in KS' tourny, so clearly that doesn't work.

                        what if you schedule the tournament like during summer break or christmas break, that way more people would be around and might even have a bigger bracket????!!

                        or maybe dont do it by clans, just say four member groups that way people will chose who they want to play wit and this way they will make sure to be there, and even if no shows it wont start wars between clans??/!!!!

                        just some ideas........nothin special

                            All I know is that its pretty **** on KS, I mean the man has taken the time to actually set up servers, get KB/M enabled. If I was him I'd probably sell my ps3.

                            I would hope a tournament set over 7 days would work, it gives people a chance to get organised otherwise its elimination. 1-2 days, first games must take place.

                            2-4 Second round,

                            5-7 Final.

                            It would give clans or teams a chance to practice in between matches.
