Good job, now the only problem is half of the people are inactive now. :P

I'm so glad this tourney is starting. Once the game gets going (and inactive players get booted), it should be a fun time. Whoever wins this thing will have some serious braggin rights.

The lowest any game had is 4. Most games has 6 to 7 people active. People are starting to F-Join other players.

Some games even have the full 10.

Not only that, by now all games in the second round have started as well! Granted, it took over two month, but who's counting? ;)
Maybe we should bet on when the final game will end. :p

Small update on the second round:

- 7 games finished
- 1 game has 3 players left (first game in tournament view)
- 1 game has 6 players left (fourth game)
- 1 game has 7 players left (ninth game)

I'm thinking about two more months (so three months from Moros' post) to the finish line.

well a thousand-person tournament sounds bad, but considering there's only 3 rounds, it's going to take less that half the time of a 512 player 1v1 tournament. and 99% will be eliminated before the third round. it would be even quicker with an autoboot. that we made it past the first round is pretty lucky, though. without autoboot, could easily have become stalled.

incidentally, there are two 1000-player tournaments up at the moment. theyre both around halfway to starting.

Would a 2000-player tournament be possible? Like the same but then with 10 teams of 2 in a game instead of a 10 people FFA?

@Moros: I don't see why not; there's a limit of 24 players per match, so it should work. Just keep in mind, it will last for at least as long as this one. Since the next round can only start when the previous one has completely finished it will take especially long for the second round to start. Also, if you honour vacation, there's 2000 people who can go on vacation...

Small update on the second round:

- 9 games finished
- 1 game has 5 players left (ninth game)

no moros, i think 1000 is the maximum number of players that can be in a tournament. hence a 10ffa with 3 rounds is the largest possible tournament.

What's wrong with a 10 FFA 4 rounds game? Then you could have 10.000 players. Or a 24 player FFA with 99 rounds? I don't think there are 43.743.439.630.215.814.417.554.245.309.493.105.589.164.787.371.682.610.008.138.403.985.430.876.829.706.169.801.965.886.689.201.719.696.286.743.666.931.265.451.017.200.746.285.236.224 players on Warlight.

Given the approximately 7.000.000.000 people on Earth and the Internet currently not extending outside of Earth / Earth's orbit (comm satellites, maybe ISS?), it might indeed prove difficult to find enough players. (The birthday paradox means multi-accounting doesn't provide a solution either; the chance *someone* will have multiple accounts end up in the same match is not negligible.)

Turns out my "I'm thinking about two more months (..) to the finish line." (posted on March 21st) was scarily accurate; it actually ended on May 20st.

Oh and sorry for the delay in the announcement; just when I forget to check up on this tournament for two weeks it finishes... :s
