Introducing Fight Night Fridays!
Fight Night Fridays are a new series of 1 v 1 tournaments hosted by me, AnonymousHippopotamus. These tournaments will be a 1 v 1, single elimination bracket style tournament held every Friday night starting at 8:30 PM ET. This tournament series will begin this Friday, August 18th at 8:30 PM ET/5:30 PM PT (Preseason Week 1). Players will be randomly matched up in a bracket at the start of the tournament each week and will face off in 1 v 1 matches on the map Mittengard. If you lose a match you are eliminated from the tournament for the week, if you win you advanced to the next round until there are only 2 players left that will battle for 1st place.
Sign-ups for the tournaments will begin 1 hour before the start of the tournament (7:30 PM ET/4:30 PM PT) on my Twitch stream at www.twitch.tv/anonymoushippopotamus_ . You will need to be in the Twitch chat for the stream to sign up for the tournament. Sign ups will end at 8:30 PM ET/5:30 PT and the bracket will be generated for the tournament. Each battle will be played in training rooms so players must have knowledge of how to create and join training rooms in the game client. After the battles are completed players will report the outcome to a tournament official. At least 1 battle from each tournament round will be broadcast on the stream for the viewing audience.
This tournament series is brand new and will be going through "beta testing" during the first two weeks so that we can work out any kinks and figure out the best system to make the games competitive and fun. The plan is for the tournament series to be held in 3 week seasons with playoffs to determine the season winners on the 4th week. Season scoring has yet to be determined. Each tournament win will be worth a certain amount of points towards a players season total. Season standings will be updated and posted each week. The top 8 players in the season standings will compete in the season playoffs. Changes may be made to the rules as the series goes on. Your feedback will be very much appreciated.
If you are interested in participating in this tournament series please read the information below and reply to this forum post so that we can gauge interest in the tournament and get an idea of how many people we should expect (You will still need to sign up on the day of the tournament). Also, spread the word to your friend's and clan members so that we can get a good number of people to compete. The tournament may need to be capped at a certain number of people so signups will be on a first come first serve basis.
