Tournament Management [UPDATED 8/31/17]
« on: September 23, 2008, 12:11:51 PM »
If you have time to start a tournament then you need to make sure you have time to finish it.

If YOU CAN NOT HOST A TOURNAMENT.....THEN DON'T START A THREAD ABOUT IT!

If you CAN NOT AI, then find someone to help BEFORE starting the topic. READ and follow the rules BEFORE posting!

**** (Most important rule) DO NOT PM ME or the rest of the staff with your ideas, you are required to post the idea in the Discussion section and work out ALL the rules......

Tournament Rules

There is currently no limit to the amount of tournaments running at any one time,


If you have not hosted a tournament before the entry list size cannot exceed 16 entrants.
Upon successful completion of your first tournament you are permitted unlimited entries

The entry size limit includes any wildcard bracket you may wish to include.
You may start a tournament with more than 1 bracket, but the total should still not exceed the limit (for example, a 16 bot tournament could have a 8 bot LW and a 8 bot HW division).
1 entrant consists of 1 robot, however if the tournament is made of a single team-based bracket, each entrant may enter up to 3 robots.
Multibots and robots with interchangeable weapon systems count as 1 robot.


Moving to Signups
To move your tourney to signups, you can then submit your tournament for approval by PMing , where the rules will be screened.

From the day your topic is moved into signups, you will have 4 months to complete your tournament. However, if host wishes to have more time to host their tournament (maximum of 9 months), they may apply for more time by pm'ing Geice. The amount of time they get allocated will be judged based on premise and intended size. For example, a tournament like this would be allowed to run for 9 months, whilst a tournament like this would not be able to have any deadline extension.

This averages out 1 month for sign ups and 2 videos a week but you may spend the time however you see fit (more sign up time, more video time, whatever)

Tournament Bailing Will NOT Be Accepted

Tournament Bailing will result in your thread being locked and a temp ban from starting another Discussion topic for 9 months after the expiry of your previous tournament.

This ban period can be removed if you complete your expired tournament, however you must PM Geice proof of progress before having your thread unlocked.

Host interference is not tolerated

You must not edit any entry you receive unless it is a necessary addition, or edit, to their smartzones (wiring is, also, an obvious exception). Any and all edits to problematic entries MUST be left to the entrant. Any failure to not abide by this rule will result in all matches in which the bot took part in being redone (and any subsequent matches it affects) in order for the entry which was unjustly edited to be represented correctly. If the original entry is problematic and is against the rules of the tournament, the builder must be contacted and be given at least 24 hours to fix the issue, assuming they were not contacted before signups closed. If the builder does not respond or does not wish to edit their entry, the bot must be removed from the tournament and the tournament restarted. If a host breaks this rule and does nothing to remedy the situation, their thread will be locked and a hosting ban of 1 month will be applied.

Tournament Sign Off

Basically, once you are finished with your tournament just toss Geice/Guldenflame a pm saying "tournament completed", "tourney finished", "I like pink bicycles btw I finished my tournament", "when's the forum hierarchy coming out btw i finished my tournament", whatever..

This is to let the tournament staff know that you are done with everything (including the awards thread if you are having one). Your tournament will be removed from the active tournament lists as the recipient next logs in.

What not to do list:
  • Please don't inform the tournament staff when someone else finishes a tournament, its the hosts job to decide when its done.
  • Please don't send more then one pm "sign off" if the information isn't updated as fast as you want (we all have outside lives too).
  • Please don't start a new discussion topic before signing off.

NOTICE: Tournament Management has been overhauled.
For the most part, everything is still the same aside from reorganization, however there is two main differences:

1. Entry Level and Major League hosting division removed in favor of just having one Active Tournament list.
2. Because of this, host scores have been removed. If you wish to keep track of the number of tournaments people of host, go ahead. (Here's a list of the host scores before removal
3. There will probably be some new things added in the new couple of days (low turnout clause, warnings for stalling, possibility some form of actual punishment for bailing, etc)

If you see any issues/errors/have any reactions/have feedback/whatever (aside from the need of a new logo for the active tournaments), you can post them here
