Official GBAtemp Tetris DS Tournament After long debates and discussions in our internal staff forum, we have eventually found a nice solution, that will guarantee both security (a good way to know the result of a match) and speed (this tournament should be much shorter than the MKDS tourney). This solution also respects your choice to play 2-players matches. So, here is how it's going to work. Please read *VERY* carefully Each match will consist in a struggle between 2 players. The first to 2 wins, wins the match. However, this struggle will be played in 4-players mode. The 4-players mode requires 4 players. This is why we will group the matches 2 by 2. The players of the 2 matches will join the same game. But the 2 matches will be played one after another. It's quite simple: the 2 players of the first match will play together, while the 2 players of the second match will forfeit immediatly. This way, the 2 players that are not playing will be able to validate the result of the match, and to post the results in their match topic. Once the first 2 players are done with their match, they will swap position with the players of the other match. (By this, we mean: the players that have just finished their match will still be in the game, but will have to forfeit immediatly, while the other 2 players will play). OK, have a deeeeep breath, and read further! Once the two matches have been played, the winners of each game should play together while the losers will watch them play (by forfeiting immediatly) and then post the results. Here is a little example of how it's going to work: Players A, B, C, D will be assigned to a topic (in the tetris tournament forum). 1st match: players A vs B, while C & D act as referees. Let's say player A wins. 2nd match: players C vs D, while A & B act as referees. Player C wins. Final match: players A vs C, while B & D act as referees. Hold on tight! We're back to the rules. We will create your match topics soon, probably this week end. Once they are created, you will have two weeks to find a time and play your match. If one of the players doesn't show up at the match time, he is eliminated. But since the 4-players mode requires 4 players, there will be a special topic for you to call for staff members. The staff member will replace the missing player in the game. The use of items is allowed! So it's a sort of "2 players mode with items". All right, if you have any question, or if you need more explanation on how it works, feel free to post comments. We know that this solution seems a bit complicated, but once again, it's the best way to control the results of the matches and to progress quickly I'd like to thank Tembargo, from PlayerAdvance.org for the long discussions we've had, and for helping us find out this complicated but wonderful solution! Beware, my friends. Tembargo has already won the first PlayerAdvance Tetris Tournament, beating Hitto in the final game! He's definitely the man you don't want to play with! Stay tuned, we'll post a new portal topic as soon as the match topics are created and the tourney officially opens (probably at the end of the week).
