I'm curious what people think of the following tournament setup, it should benefit both myself and the community:

There are a fairly limited number of slots, 8, or 16 seem likely, could do other numbers if the tournament was made RR (which I think I'd prefer actually).

To join the tournament you must challenge me to a best of series (probably best of 5, 7 might get to be a lot of games) and beat me. You also must not be a member.

This is the part that benefits me. I get practice playing against various opponents that challenge me. It will likely lead to me improving a decent bit.

The winner of the tournament is then gifted a membership by me.

This obviously benefits them.

I'd have requirements requiring # of games played, but probably not regarding win %, if you can beat me in the best of 5/7- then I don't care what your win % is.

The min game requirement though is to stop people from challenging me more than once with different accounts, and to hopefully prevent people who already have membership from making new accounts and challenging me with those accounts.

I'd also play one best of series at a time, and continue playing as many as needed till 'x' number of challengers had beaten me ('x' being a predetermined amount, the number of people invited to the final tournament).

The reason to play one at a time, is let's say, there's 2 slots left, I'm playing 3 people at a time, they all win, but only 2 can be invited. I want to avoid that type of scenario.

This may make the tournament start quite late, but I see no better alternative.

Oh, I realized I didn't mention.

All best of series would be s1v1, as would the final tournament.

Yes, this is a tournament for only members of the "Master Race".

I definitely think RR is the better option. Less luck involved than single elim or double elim.

How many people seems most sane to invite to a RR? I don't mind being a fairly large number and having the tournament last a while, but some people might.

Higher # = greater chance of getting into the tournament, but lower chance of winning, and longer time till someone wins.

It'd also be won by one of the top ladder players most likely, which isn't the goal.

I'd much rather someone like - rayguns win, than a member wins and gives the membership to someone that is their friend, but is potentially much worse than the better non-members.

"but is potentially much worse than the better non-members. "

i don't agree. the winner likely if already member will gift it to another strong player for maybe play ladder 2v2 together.

I'll go with best of 5 series, not 7.

Multi-day games, though I will intend to play them fairly quickly, just not 5 min boot times.

How many people max in the tournament seems ideal (any number is fine,doesn't need to be a neat number like 4, 8, 16, 32, etc. since will be RR, not single/double elim)?

put 8/10/12 player on RR. more will take too long. maybe is good that you put 3 game at same time.
if you will change idea about "only non-member" invite me.

10 it is.

I will state all challengers, and the final win-loss. If anyone knows that a challenger listed is actually an alt of a member, feel free to comment.

Is it an 1v1 strategical map challenge.
If yes, I challenge you as well.

And a proposal:
you can play parallel with the challangers, only you have to care the number of the parallel games could be the maximum still left slot in the tourney.

I mean, if you decided the RR tourney will be for 10 players, you can play parallel againts 10 challengers even, but no more. And after one of these challengers failed, you can open a new one, but if one of the first 10 challengers beat you, of course you cannot start a new match, because that means -1 slot.

Sorry for my poor english, I hope you can understand what I would like to say :)

Omniscient, thanks for helping out the community like this :)
We have already played 7 (perhaps more) strategic 1v1s, and I won most I think, do I still need to challenge you separately for this? If so I challenge you, if you accept our past games I would appreciate it and we can carry on playing different maps :)

Gnuff, thanks for pointing out Gui's alts, if there are any other you know which are alts please tell Omni.

Also makes more sense for only non-members, since it gives them a chance to win an opportunity to get into the 1v1 ladder. If not it is who is friends with the best people with a membership?

@hedja: You're 4-2 vs. me in s1v1, so you'd probably be able to beat me in a best out of 5, but I don't think it's fair to count you in as there's probably more than 10 people that have beaten more than I've beaten them who aren't members, and I can't give them all free byes :P
