Tournament Idea

A 2v2 "Team Tournament", where each team actually has 5 people, but only 2 play at a time.

Teams choose their 2 players before each game from their list of elibable players. If a player is killed in game, regardless of whether his team wins or loses, he is out of the tournament. Only teams with 2 people make it to the next round (unless you like the idea of 2v1). Teams keep playing each other random-round-robin style until only one team has eligable players left, and their remaining living players are crowned the champions (and get to shed tears for the dead).

Interesting idea. We'll definitely put some thought into it. But having a team with 5 people in it would be a bit troublesome because there wouldn't be that many teams. Unless people get automatically assigned to a team but that will result in people being angry about getting this guy or that guy on their team. We have to really look at the big picture when we organize our tournaments and instead of catering to a dozen regulars, we would prefer to have tournaments where the individual or two can enter the tournament and that's that. People seem to have problems arranging themselves into teams bigger then that, unless they are in the TS3 group or a clan.

What we do for our hockey leagues up here in Canada might work, that is, everyone who has any part of a team can sign up, if you have a full team great if not then you start sticking part teams/individuals together.

The people who actually have a team will probably fair better, but at least everyone gets a chance.

i have an idea for reverse hybrid tournament, first 1v1s, like 4 games each, random pairing. or even better - FFAs, with rule: the later you die, the more points you get.

then next step - those who take most points get a teammate with least points and enter 2v2 with single elimination brackets

this way each participant plays at least N games, avoiding the worst(imho) part of regular single elimination tournaments where half the players only play once.

PS did not like the part of original hybrid tournament where the winner team members had to fight each other.
