Westlan Red vs. Blue tournament!

Postby opus » Tue Nov 10, 2009 12:38 am

THIS IS RIPPED OFF, BUT IT WORKS, SO STFU.


Rather than run lots of little tournaments which never get finished and end up rather disappointing for all involved, I'll this time be running one LARGE tournament in several stages.

The idea being, that I split the LAN into red and blue, then we have several BIG games across all sorts of genres and game types (so everyone gets to play something they enjoy), or if we can't have BIG games, an hour (ish) set aside for each fixed/limited player game (L4D, strategy games, etc).

Results will be correlated by my amazing correlatorizer (pen and paper, how 20th century) and the winning 'half' of the LAN get lots of hugs and kisses and puppies and kittens. Possibly prizes too.

Those players who distinguish themselves by being consistently awesome, from either team, will receive special bonus prizes which are yet to be disclosed.



Please contribute any games you feel would be good to add to a very loose schedule and to rubbish the idea entirely.

What if an uneven number of people have the games that are chosen to be played?

Opus will persuade extras to arrive, or Some #FF00FF coloured staff will come in to bolster numbers

Your ideas remind me of several EA games - take a simple idea, add complicity and screw it up.

Just stick with red and blue and see how it goes.

Good idea. First game suggestion - UT2k4 silly weapons mod

You're red, everyone else is blue.
