Tournament Sign-Ups

Post by Dregan on Tue Nov 17, 2015 5:04 pm

Ladies, Gentlemen and beyond, hello, and welcome to the Tremendous Tribulations Tournament! A small forum event/tournament, to feast off the toats violent animals I know you all are inside. How is this gonna work? Well, below are some in-depth descriptions! Or, for those of you who hate reading, tl;dr summaries! Just don't blame me if you miss something due to not reading the full things. ;D

Stucture Has Been Updated!
The Structure:
So! The tournament itself will be split into multiple rounds, based on the number of participants and such. Whilst in most rounds everyone will have an opponent, odd numbers may result in a few people skipping/sitting out on certain rounds - we'll see how it goes!

The tournament will work on a tree system, with a loser's bracket. What's a loser's bracket? It means that if you lose one round of the tournament, you're not instantly out - you'll simply drop down into a second tournament bracket, to try and work your way back up into the main tournament finale. Lose a second time though? Aaand you're out!


If that sounds a little complicated, don't worry about it, all you need to know is this; Lose two rounds and you're out, and depending on the number of participants you may be given a free pass on certain rounds. I'll sort all the complicated stuff out.
Edit: Due to the much larger amount of people entering than anticipated, we are dropping the loser's bracket, as that would only severely pro-long the tournament. Now you only have one life - lose once and you're out.

tl;dr:
-Tournament is round based on a tree system
-Lose once and you're out
-Depending on number of participants, certain people may get certain rounds off

The Combat:
Each fight will be quite simple really. You're assigned your opponent, and either myself or one of the other judges will set up the start and give you a li'l location to fight it out in. You both RP your characters fighting back and forth until the timer for the round ends - it'll usually be about a week or two I imagine to give you plenty of time.

Once a halt is bought to the fighting, judging shall begin (the details of which are below). Myself, Uncanny and Electrisa shall be acting as the judges - and to be clear and make this fair, none of us will be competing as combatants. Judging will decide the overall winner of the match, which one of us will then declare in the topic.

After a winner is decided, the combatants may wish to continue the RP, just to allow themselves to wrap up to the victory of the decided victor. This isn't mandatory, but would be nice as a way of rounding up and finishing up each of the fights, for that sorta personal satisfaction.

tl;dr
-Judge will sort fight location and start it
-RP back and forth with your opponent
-Judge will stop fights and judge winner
-RP may optionally continue to wrap up fight if both competitors wish

The Judging:
The Judges will be rating the combat on four key areas; Entertainment, Creativity, Balance and Clarity. You will be marked out of 10 in each of these areas. Once all the judging is done, your marks from each area from each judge will be added together to give you an overall score for the round. Get a higher score than your opponent, and you win!

Sooo, what are we actually looking for more precisely in each of these areas... Well...

Entertainment is probably the most general category, but arguably the most important for it. Entertainment covers how enjoyable your posts are to read. Writing 'Dave shoots a laser' is all well and good, but it can only get you so far. Flair and personality will really help you with this - getting the chance to hear your character's thought processes can make a match much more intriguing too. Make this a fight we WANT to read!

Creativity is pretty much what it says on the tin. Creativity, originality, all the sorta thing. Writing a fight purely with your character's basic moveset is fine - in fact, it'll probably make up the majority of the combat. Still, use of the environment - like kicking up sand in someone's eyes - or unique ways of using powers - like a flight user using something to pin someone's feet, the grabbing their body and trying to fly up, to stretch/put pressure on the legs - can really add to an encounter, and make it more than the sum of it's parts.

Balance is extreeemely important. Not just to this tournament , but in RPing generally. Whilst the previous categories are ones you have to work for, this is one where you basically start at the top, and can only go down. You want to avoid forcing hits, avoid dodging everything, don't present yourself as too overpowered, all the obvious ones. One less obvious one to be wary of, is not writing your opponent into corners. You have to be careful not to force people into lose-lose situations, where they only outcome they can write is bad for them - give people room to RP for themselves, and you'll score highly on this.

Clarity is the most technical of the four key areas - basically how clear your writing is. If we can't understand what you're saying, how are we meant to enjoy your writing? More than anything, this is just about writing stuff which makes sense, making posts that can be easily read and responded to. Whilst spelling and grammar are partly accounted into this, that won't be judged too harshly, unless it's so bad we literally can't understand the words. What's more important is making sure we understand what it is you're trying to say is happening.

tl;dr
-Judges rating on Entertainment, Creativity, Balance and Clarity
-Mark each out of 10
-Add marks together for overall round score
-Try and get the higher score to win the round!

Signing Up;
So, you may be thinking now; 'Wow, all of that sounds amazing! Or at least the tl;dr sections I actually read do! How do I sign up?' Weeell, simply leave a comment below, stating your interest and which character you'll be using! If you could provide a bio - either a link to one, ooor a small written-up summary - then it would be much appreciated!
The only limitation is; Only one character per person! So choose wisely! We're accepting any and all characters, so whilst you can choose your most powerful and try to win through with that... well, it might not do so well for your Balance score!
We'll give it... let's say a week to sign-up for now! Depending on interest may extend it, but for now, assume if you want in, you need to get sorted by the 24th!

Current competitors;
Burn (Sora)
Boubka (Boubka)

I would very much like to participate in this. Not certain who to use but I'm definitely leaning towards Sora because it'd be interesting using someone that doesn't know how to fight almost at all. XD

I want to be able to have a reason for them to fight either way. Unless we're doing non-canon deathbattle esque stuff which I don't think we are.

I'll make my mind up soon-ish and post a bio, but just noting that I have an interest. Razz

Let's just throw Boubka in this and see what happens. I still need to be a part of a good fight RP and I think this is the best way. Also I'm just gonna sit here to fill up a spot!

Hope to see some good fights!

I THIRST FOR BLOOD
Sooo I'll be using a character I have a lot of fun writing for in combat situations; Maxwell Torone!
At only 24 years of age, this frilly pink-clad griffon is a natural dancer and their expertise is working with poles and staffs. Rather than rely on brute strength, their fighting style is a mix between feats of athleticism and dancing. Their preferred weapon of choice is a halberd, that's on their person at all times, and they use this weapon in combination with their agile movements. In addition, they hold the power of aerokinesis - manipulating the wind and air, and their favoured tactic with these powers is to enhance their own speed, and slow the movements of others with gusts of wind.

For context, imagine it as a sort of... TV-tournament. Battles not to the death, but probably to KO or similar such. Sorta like a big fancy in-universe event type dealio.
There's probably some big cash prize at the end. Or a holiday. Maybe both?

Makes sense for her to take part in a tournament that rewards a lot of cash! Razz

I guess I'll jump in, and I'll be using Six the Raccoon

As for a fighting capabilities, Six has high endurance, strength, reaction time, speed and speed, however has little to no knowledge on what would I guess be described as "Super Powers", such as elemental kinetics, psychic abilities, flying etc.

Still near enough a regular Mobian but with hightened senses and physical capabilities, yet feels pain just as much as anyone else and of course does have a limit. Also, lacking theability to feel fear, stress or self doubt. Anger is his strongest emotion and can cause his level-headed, strategic mindset to go completely out the window.


^Second on the list ^

KURUSU!

Post by The Solid Hound on Tue Nov 17, 2015 10:17 pm

Cruz will join the fight, although I fear that he might be very boring to watch. He's mostly about stealth, which can be awesome if used correctly, but most of the time it's just people tip-toeing and crawling around. He's also really good at hand-to-hand combat, but that's not unique at all... Bio Here!

I'm interested. I'll use Washon'jour for this. Give me some time to write the bio up. (I'm fairly behind on providing those)

That's fine, though want to double-check, who you using? I assume Ryder, and have listed you as such currently, but you didn't actually say anyone, so want to make sure.

Also, noted down everyone else who's signed up so far. Just a reminder, that whilst bios are like, super-appreciated, not to worry too much if you don't get one to us in time for the character you want to use. Bios are helpful, but not mandatory!

Well...IDK where Washon'jour's bio went. Had it in a Document and it just 'poof' disappeared on me. Now I have to re-write the whole thing. *Sad Face*
