2014 Tournament Calendar
Sun, 29 December 2013 21:37
Here's the final version of the calendar for the upcoming year.
Last year, we :
Focused on promoting alternative maps : by creating the Fusion Cup, the Asia Map championship and the Multi Euro Championship
Increased the participation to every single-player KO-tournaments
Increased the participation to the Nations Cup
Introduced successfully the perceived rankings to seed team tournaments.
Introduced the tournament ELO rankings to promote competitive matches over the DoW rankings.
Designed a new tickipedia main page !
The main objective for this year is to promote higher-level competition.
Several ways to reach that goal :
Renovate, promote the New League and increase its turnout. 2014's will be a trial edition.
Promote TELO as the new reference for competitive rankings
Use TELO to seed individual tournaments
Maintain the level of participation to Fusion/NC and to the single-player tournaments.
Create the MVP tournament at the end of the year. It would look like a Final Four gathering the League winner, the SPWC winner and the TELO ranking leader. 4th spot to be determinded (2 valuable options : 2nd of the League, or 2nd in the Telo-Ranking).
Any information about the tournaments (explanations, dates, tournament directors) can be found >>HERE<< on tickipedia.
Every tournament match (or games when relevant) counts for the Tournament ELO Ranking that can be found
TELO ranking will now be used to seed any individual tournaments.
Note : we are discussing a possible new format for multi-player tournaments to make it more flexible and easier to implement.
