I know this has been suggested many times but I would like it to suggest a simple system for a single spar tournament that can take place every season.
How to get qualified:
It’s going to be a 64-brackets. 3 days before the single spar tournament start, a new spar room will temporarily open untill the single spar tournament start. There will be a points system similar to the GS one, you get points when you win and you lose points when you lose the match. “Showpoints” will show the player’s points. The registration will take place in the same position as the GST registration. You’re only allowed to enter the registration if you have more points than the 64th registered sparrer. If you are registered and have the lowest points and someone new registers who has more points than you then you will get a server message telling you you’re not qualified anymore. You will also know if you’re in the top 32 players list who has the most points. There will be only a mixed single spar tournament.
How to view the matches:
There will be a view room similar to the GST view room. However, there will be only two single spar rings instead of four.
No hacking or cheating
Exclusive lag can lead to a DQ
You must be online when your match starts otherwise that’s a DQ
Forcing delay for example by using VPN will lead to a DQ
The brackets system will be the same as the GST system.
How to win:
There will be 4 rounds before the semi-finals. The firs and second rounds are first to 3. The third, fourth rounds are first to 5. The semi-finals will also be first to 5. If you win in the semi-finals you will qualify to the finals which will be first to 10. If you lose the semi-finals you will fight for the 3rd place which will be first to 5. (This can be improved)
First place winner will get to have a golden animated sword. It’s not an actual sword, it’s like a trophy you can show off. Second winner will have a silver animated sword. Third winner will have a bronze animated sword. Those sword trophies will disappear if the player loses in the next single spar tournament. In addition to that, gralats can be given as a reward to all players who entered depending on where they placed. The first place winner could also get a hat if the gfx staff te are willing to make one.
It doesn’t seem like a lot of work to me and it’s a better idea than having GST being hosted more than once every season. The SST can be 32 brackets instead but I believe 64 would be better to allow most sparrers to join. Also we can have more than two rings if the GP team is willing to go host more than two spar rooms. To me, it doesn’t sound like alot of work since the GST already exist which will be very similar to the SST. Can we please have such a tournament? Also, what’s your opinion on this?
