Crash Course 2 Tournament

Post  Waggly Bean on Wed Sep 25, 2013 11:08 pm

First topic message reminder :

This will be a knockout tournament to declare the overall champion of Crash Course 2. This will be a friendly tournament, although there will be an XBLA game code up for grabs for the Crash Course 2 king or queen. Crash Course 2 is free so NO EXCUSES! Razz

Rules
- STAGE 1: post below to enter the tourney.
- STAGE 2: Participants will be paired up randomly. These pairs will be listed in this thread by me.
- It is then up to each pair to arrange a game before the cut off date set by me.
- Set up for game: will be a best of 5 rounds between each player (specifics to follow).
- Failure to arrange and play your game before the cut-off date may result in disqualification. If there are any problems getting your paired rival to play with you, you need to post in this thread so I can either arrange a new partner for you or decide that the other person has forfeited their place.
- When each pair has played their game, they will come back to this thread and post who won out of the two. The winners will go on to the next stage of the tourney and face a winner from another pair. I will post tournament progress here in the first post for you to follow along with. Smile
- Eventually we will get to the final, and the winner will be declared. This person shall be idolised by all, and given an amazing prize!
- NOTE: New site members are welcome to join in and will be eligible for any prizes given.

So, who's up for it? We need 8 to make this a goer, but 16 would be more exciting! Wink



ENTRANTS:

  1. Waggly
  2. Markav
  3. Rogue Minerva
  4. Tricky34
  5. minkey_monkey
  6. Leigh36295
  7. Tenlo
  8. RabidHellBunny
  9. ruffriddimz
  10. Lighthouseman
  11. Colne Crusader
  12. Jevil
  13. FoxyBoy89
  14. TreeMunky





As you can probably tell, the lack of a full 16 players has left the table slightly lop-sided, meaning two players automatically have to start from the quarter finals. There are pros and cons to this - these guys obviously have to sit out the first rounds, but it does of course mean they are closer to being crowned winner straight off the mark! Razz

Next steps:
Stage 1 Rules:

Stage 1 Rules

  • Each pair must arrange to play their own game. Any problems with this must be reported in the thread.
  • The winner will be the top player from a best of 5 game.
  • For the first level of the tournament, I recommend playing the Amazon Jungle Tournament.
  • To set up the game, one player will need to go to Multiplayer > Private Match. On the lobby screen, (s)he will need to press RB to change courses, and select 'Amazon Jungle' from the 'tournament' tab. You may need to "buy" this tournament with your stars - I believe I had enough stars to do this straight away when I started the game, but if neither player can afford it for whatever reason (and doesn't want to play any single player levels to earn a few stars) you can make up a best of 5 of your own with the levels you do have available, as long as you are both in agreement about playing those ones.
  • Once the game has been played either player can come back here and post in this thread to say who won, so I can update the scoreboards!
  • You have until the end of the day 03/11/13 to complete this stage of the tournament (although hopefully we will all be done long before then!)


So, these people now need to arrange their own games:

  1. Lighthouseman vs Minkey Monkey
  2. Waggly Bean vs Leigh36295
  3. Ruffridimz vs Tricky34
  4. RabidHellBunny vs Tenlo
  5. Colne Crusader vs IAmProjectAlice
  6. FoxyBoy89 vs Markav

Jevil and Treemunky wait for the next stage. Sorry guys! Embarassed




Stage 2 Rules:

Stage 2 Rules

  • Each pair must arrange to play their own game. Any problems with this must be reported in the thread.
  • The winner will be the top player from a best of 5 game.
  • For the quarter finals, I recommend playing the second tournament levels, Antarctic Tournament.
  • To set up the game, one player will need to go to Multiplayer > Private Match. On the lobby screen, (s)he will need to press RB to change courses, and select 'Antarctic' from the 'tournament' tab. You may need to "buy" this tournament with your stars, but if neither player can afford it for whatever reason (and doesn't want to play any single player levels to earn a few stars) you can make up a best of 5 of your own with the levels you do have available, as long as you are both in agreement about playing those ones.
  • No jinxes or powerups are to be used.
  • Once the game has been played either player can come back here and post in this thread to say who won, so I can update the scoreboards!
  • You have until the end of the day 24/11/13 to complete this stage of the tournament (although hopefully you will all be done long before then!)


So, these people now need to arrange their own games:

  1. Jevil vs Minkey Monkey
  2. Leigh36295 vs Tricky34
  3. TreeMunky vs Tenlo
  4. Colne Crusader vs Markav




Stage 3: SEMI FINALS Rules:

Stage 3: SEMI FINALS Rules

  • Each pair must arrange to play their own game. Any problems with this must be reported in the thread.
  • The winner will be the top player from a best of 5 game.
  • For the semi finals, you can choose between the first and second tournament levels, Amazon Jungle Tournament or Antarctic Tournament (players choice).
  • To set up the game, one player will need to go to Multiplayer > Private Match. On the lobby screen, (s)he will need to press RB to change courses, and select 'Amazon Jungle' or 'Antarctic' from the 'tournament' tab. You may need to "buy" one of these tournaments with your stars, but if neither player can afford it for whatever reason (and doesn't want to play any single player levels to earn a few stars) you can make up a best of 5 of your own with the levels you do have available, as long as you are both in agreement about playing those ones.
  • Jinxes can be used if you like. 
  • Once the game has been played either player can come back here and post in this thread to say who won, so I can update the scoreboards!
  • You have until the end of the day 02/12/13 to complete this stage of the tournament (although hopefully you will all be done long before then!)


So, these people now need to arrange their own games:

  1. Jevil vs Leigh36295
  2. TreeMunky vs Colne Crusader




Stage 4: FINAL ROUND Rules:

Stage 4: FINAL ROUND Rules

  • Each pair must arrange to play their own game. Any problems with this must be reported in the thread.
  • The winner will be the top player from a best of 3 tournaments. 3 separate 5 level tournaments will be played, and the winner will be determined not by how many levels are won overall, but by how many tournament wins they have. ie the player that wins 2 or more of the 3 tournaments is the overall winner.
  • For the final battle, it is advised you play the first three tournament levels, Amazon Jungle Tournament, Antarctic Tournament, and finally Egyptian Tournament.
  • To set up the game, one player will need to go to Multiplayer > Private Match. On the lobby screen, (s)he will need to press RB to change courses, and select the right tournament from the 'tournament' tab. You may need to "buy" one of these tournaments with your stars, but if neither player can afford it for whatever reason (and doesn't want to play any single player levels to earn a few stars) you can make up a best of 5 of your own with the levels you do have available, as long as you are both in agreement about playing those ones.
  • No jinxes or powerups can be used, only fair races this time.  
  • Once the game has been played either player can come back here and post in this thread to say who won, so I can update the scoreboards!
  • You have until the end of the day 11/12/13 to complete this stage of the tournament!

I feel sorry for you matey Sad. you should check gumtree, loads of people usually on there these days selling cheap 32 inch TV's, not flat screen but at least something you can watch the tv/ DVDs on.

Jevil, try and look for a local freecycle group in your area. As quite often people will give away the old style tvs, when they upgrade to flatscreens.

Also local for sale groups on Facebook can be good for finding some bargains.

Well played Jevil.

Markav was trying to get me in the week but life got a bit hectic for me. But I've been around all weekend, but cant get hold of the bugger. I guess he's doing family things.

Might be asking for an extension to tomorrow night if we cant find each other toneet...
