Thought: If we can get the right number of people through sheer luck, maybe we do the early-round pairings in pods by time zone?

frex: 16 players, 8 from the US, 4 from Chile, 4 from Singapore (I'm completely making up numbers here to make my life easier)

Set up four pods of 4: the Singapore players, the Chile players, 4 US players, the other 4 US players. Round robin within each pod, winners of the pods make top 4 cut. That way, people aren't trying to time out matches with 8-12 hour differences between the players until the top cut, when scheduling is less important than getting the games played out and you're only holding up, at most, two other people.

Now, this almost certainly doesn't work if we have 3 people from Singapore, 2 from the UK, 3 from the US West Coast, 5 from Chile, and 6 from the US East Coast, because how do you do pods with 19 people that scattered, but if we get lucky and the structure works out, we should consider time zone based pairings.

An interesting idea.....Divisional Play in essence....though there's people like me who don't sleep and live all sorts of oddball hours that could help move over to the "Europe/Asia" Division if needed too....plus I like playing against different playstyles...keeps the game refreshing for me....I approve of this idea and offer myself up as someone who could be that extra body to fill out the time zone issues

(also Chile shares our time zones so that shouldn't be THAT big an issue with them syncing times....it's just closer to summer down there while probably need our snow shovels soon)

I think I pretty much AM the Europe time zone.
Do I automatically make the top cut?

Also, there's people like me who, normally, are sleeping during the day since we work the graveyard shift.

That's why I said to check when people are available before it begins.  I would probably have an easier time against a day Singapore exclusive than against a day USA person due to my normal sleeping habits from work.  It seems weird, but availability is what we're talking to begin with.

As I said, Nick conceded the game due to an emergency.

I don't mind playing it out still another time but I haven't heard from him since so a little unsure what his current situation is.

I'm not working today and tomorrow - let me know when's good. Failing that I'm sure we can squeeze a game in over the weekend.

Maybe after the 1st of the year, people will be settled back in, and have interest in another tournament.  Just have to set time limits, I'd say.

Yes, most definitely a more timely tournament to kick off 2017, I was thinking maybe using a world's style format to make it interesting....and since we should be getting some new people filing in thanks to TCO's sign-ups being re-opened.....

Yeah my locals are hoping to get signed up soon on tco. Ive told them about these but also said don't sign up if you can't commit...not trying to discourage, just letting them know we don't want this to happen again

I would love a worlds style event but there are many players who don't like AA or Revo, straight VC might just be the way to roll

While I agree with this, it would be a cool idea for those who can never actually get to a Gen Con to have a real legit chance to see how they'd do in the format....heh steal one from the wwe and crown a universal champ :)

maybe you hold four tournaments one in each of the formats  Nxt , VC, VAA and Rev, if you win you move to the top  four and you can't enter the other tournaments as you have qualified. top 4 works like worlds with  best of 3 with a random assortments of the formats. deck lists need to be  submitted for the final four.

I like this idea, but I'm wondering if it might take too long doing it that way. Maybe the pre-cut rounds all happen at the same time, then we do the top 4 cuts sequentially (with the winner of each top 4 dropping out if they're in later ones, passing the slot down), then we do the final top 4 as you suggest?

This way, the early rounds can all go on simultaneously, letting people get more games in faster. (Also, if one of the four tourneys ends sooner, that top 4 cut can happen sooner, so we can keep momentum going.)

You guys want me to run 4 tournaments at once!?!?!  ???

That might be asking for trouble. I do have an idea though...

What if we do something like a Raw Deal World Cup? America plays a pod event with each other, and we separate the rest of the world as well, and maybe the winner of each area goes into a "top?" It could possibly solve the issue of a mass time difference, at least until the playoffs?

Say like, split America down the middle, East and West? Then we have a Europe Pod and Asia?

What do you guys think

That sounds very similar to something I posted about splitting us up according to our availability.

Again, that falls to when we could play.  My normal available hours are around the time that many people in my own area are not (the Graveyard shift does that).
