FIFA 13 Tournament Xbox

Do you guys want to have groups based on timezones or along those lines? Would be ALOT easier
EarnYourSpurs (Tottenham Hotspur) 4 years ago
It would make the games a lot easier, but it would be a hard thing to do. We'll start this first tournament, see who is serious about playing, and then figure out timezone's and groups and all that stuff.

Groups would be most easily done with 32 people. We have 17 at the moment.... And technically we could do 4 groups consisting of 4 people, then go to just an 8 person tournament bracket, but it would be complicated. We'll start with a 16 person bracket, see how things go, then maybe next tourney we can incorporate groups...

Is there any spaces left? If so gamertag is gogettaz MC LM  
EarnYourSpurs (Tottenham Hotspur) 4 years ago
Yes. We have sixteen people at the moment but I guarantee a few people won't show. I'm sure we'll have to allow people one or two weeks during the first round to ensure everyone's made aware the tournament started, but after that it should be smooth sailin'

I count 18 including Leeson? Am I going insane?
EarnYourSpurs (Tottenham Hotspur) 4 years ago
Yes, you make Charles Manson look sane. Leeson makes it 17, I already added his GT to the list...

Well that's 16. So I guess we can just do round of 16. Do we so knockout rounds like 2 matches home and away? Go off aggregate or just 1 match elimination?
EarnYourSpurs (Tottenham Hotspur) 4 years ago
I say 2 match aggregate. We don't have many people yet and it would double the amount of games we would have to play. Otherwise, whoever wins would only play 4 matches.... This way he plays 8 (if we do 2 match final too).... It seems more fair.

SO, how do we draw for the first round? .... It would make things a lot easier if people would post what country they're from. As we know, there's a pretty good chance of having a laggy match if you have a person in America playing a person from say Australia. We should try to match people up by country, it would make things easier as we progress through the tournament
NAOTA (Chelsea) 4 years ago
I'm from Canada and I played Ayyam from Australia it wasn't to laggy. Still some jolts and etc...
EarnYourSpurs (Tottenham Hotspur) 4 years ago
That's good to hear. I haven't played anyone from Australia but I've heard that people living there have had a few problems with latency.

The playstation people really seem to have their s**t together. Lol. We need someone who can get graphs and charts and all that good stuff

Ok so when do the games start, what does the bracket look like, etc?
EarnYourSpurs (Tottenham Hotspur) 4 years ago
It looks like he's trying to start a group stage between 6 people of the same team. The top three from that group go into a tournament bracket.... I've got a ten spot on this falling apart.

Btw, it looks like we have 6 different teams, so if you take 3 from each group you'll end up with 18 people; 9 on each side won't work in a bracket....

At the moment we have about 14 people, if we got 2 more we could just set up a sweet sixteen tournament bracket. Much simpler.
NAOTA (Chelsea) 4 years ago
I think we should just do knockout stages depending on how many we have. If we have 16 it'd work perfect. Even 24 would be fine could do Group stages too
EarnYourSpurs (Tottenham Hotspur) 4 years ago
Yup, that's what I'm thinkin. We only need two more people to start up a 16 person tournament. 32 would be fine too, if we could get that many people.

We could do group stages, just not by team. The numbers wouldn't add up. We would need at least 32 people for a group stage; 8 groups of 4 people, and the top 2 from each group go on to a 16 person knockout stage. It would be absolutely awesome if we could make this work....

Blayzie, chime in on this because I don't think the way you had things planned will work....
