This thread is for controlling any chaos over the hosting and execution of gaming competitions.
It is required that you sign up for a spot in this thread if you would like to host a competition.
If you post a competition thread without first signing up here, that thread will be locked.

The rules! Please read these first.


Guidelines:
▪ Competitions must be open to the general public.
▪ There can only be one competition running at once (except in the situation listed below).
▪ A second competition may be started if the first lasts longer than 10 weeks.
▪ The competition must be completed within 15 weeks, or it will be closed.
▪ Competitions will take place on a first come, first served basis.
▪ Each person can only sign up to host one competition at a time.
▪ If it is your turn and you do not begin sign-ups or a qualifying round within 5 days, your turn may be skipped for the next competition. During this 5 day period, the host in the front of the line must either shout me or make a post in this thread stating his/her’s status on competition readiness.
▪ Relating to the above guideline, if you acknowledge that your competition will not be ready during this 5 day period, your spot in line will be given to the next person, who will then be given a 5 day period. However, if you give your spot up, you may take the next spot in line.
▪ Any who do not sign up using the provided template may or may not be able to host said competition.

Signing Up

Name of Competition (optional): The Kongregate King

Number of competitors being accepted: 150-200

Approximate run time: Between 1 and 2 months.

Names of co-hosts, spreadsheeters, etc.: jacobmatto, Payton_Hayes, WiiPlayer113.

Other: I will rank competitors in a different way, there will be a first round and only 128 will remain, these 128 will be randomly put into groups A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H. Then they will be a round and only 8 competitors of each group will qualify (64 remaining), they will stay in those groups, then there will be another round which will be the same as the previous round, only 4 of each group will qualify (32 remaining). Then the same again, 2 of each group now (16 remaining). Then this would be the “Round of 16”, just like in sports competitions, each will play against one opponent, and whoever gets the highest score qualifies (8 remaining). Then the same with the quarter-finals (4 remaining), semi-finals (2 remaining) and final (1 remaining, the “Kongregate King”).
It would work like a FIFA World Cup.
(If I can only do it the “normal” way, then please tell me)
Edit: 13/02/2010: note to self: maybe I could do this like a sports league…?

Do multi-player competition still count as proper competitions? :P

Wii, I’d be happy to help co-host if you want. it’s always helpful to have someone on the other side of the world so you can update 24/7

The delete button doesn’t work properly sometimes. I’ll try again but- Wait, didn’t you just break your own rule? XD

EDIT: Nah, still doesn’t work, sorry. Anyway, to not make this post completely useless…

I have 4 games ready, I am thinking 9-10 rounds.

Name of Competition: Vigorous Gaming (the 1st letter of each word together spells VG, which is my preferred username. :P)

Number of competitors being accepted: 150+

Approximate run time: Depends on how long it takes the competitors. I’m guessing about 2 months.

STAFF



Co-hosts: Conquerer95, Sellyme, IAmTheCandyman, & 09Kisame09
(gets a copy of the games list after the Qualifying Round ends, can spreadsheet, but can’t compete with the competitors, but can compete with other Co-Hosts).

Spreadsheeters: WiiPlayer113, iGark, Fricknmaniac, & Jazzaboy
(can spreadsheet & compete)

Other: 12 rounds. The deadlines for each round will most likely end at a fair time for Eastern Standard Time, which should hopefully be fair for everyone else. Whoever wins will get a prize. Any Co-Host who has competed against other Co-Hosts may also be eligible for a much smaller prize, if there is one.

SIGNING UP

Name: Unknown as of right now

Number of competitors: 150 – 200 depending on level of interest.

Approximate Run Time: Depends on number of people that are in it. But I would say most likely around 2 months. This is just a really rough guess.

Co-Hosts: himitsusj

Spreadsheeters: Himitsusj, and maybe one more depending on amount of people.

Other: Rounds will last around 3-4 days.

Name of Competition: The Kongrethlon!

Number of competitors being accepted: 100

Approximate run time: 3 weeks

Names of co-hosts, spreadsheeters: Rms04, CheezezbergrPls

Other: As described by the name, it will be sort of like a decathlon. There will be 5 game rounds and each round will last 3 days. Each contestant will post a score. After the 5th round, scores will be averaged for each contestant, and they will be given a final score. If any scores are the same, the contestants that are tied will have a sudden death round. After all scores are ok and no sudden deaths are needed, final scores will be posted. Hopefully, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be awarded a certain number of Kong Kreds to their account. (I will talk to an admin about setting this up)
