There are two options of how this could be run? Which do you prefer:
Having one day set aside for this tournament, with tourney rounds happening successively 31%  31%  [ 4 ]
Doing one tournament round per saturday for 3-4 weeks, each day only taking a few hours 69%  69%  [ 9 ]

Hmmm, doesn't seem to be much interest so far. The reason Quitch presented (that being that some people don't like the idea of being to forced to take their turns in a certain amount of time) is understandable, but I find it hard to believe that everone feels this way. Especially considering that most gamers seem to like the games where you can finish in one sitting.

What are some other reasons? Mwigor has told me that one problem is the time, how we need to specify a time for the tournament to start. Many people might not be able to set aside time right then for the tournament.

So here's a possible solution to this: How about having 4 possible times for each player to choose from? Maybe 2 different times on Saturday, and 2 on Sunday? Each player would then play other players in their "heat". We would need to make sure noone knew which players were going into what heat though, to make it fair. In later matches where there are less players, it is possible for us to arrange a time for each match based on the time constraints of the two players.

We will also see if we can get more advertising for this tournament in, perhaps on the MAN page.

I was skimming through this thread, and but didn't see any mention of Bizzaria as being one of the planets in sch a competition. Or did I miss something?

Anyway, I'd really like to see Biz in there as well. :)

I would be interested in the tournament (however the final rules/setup are worked out), as long as there were a few alterante start times (I'm working Saturday, but could pick late Saturday or any time on Sunday, for example.) Regardless of how it turns out, I think it'd at least be an alternate approach to playing MA. Should be interesting. 8)

10mins timelimit sounds great. Any idea when this will be released by the developers?

I'll play - both of the options could cause problems though. In theory, speed games should be at a time agreed between the players so they both agree to commit the next two hours to playing a game to conclusion. I think this is sensible option for games even outside of a tournament.

I'm also interested in playing this lightning tournament!

Although I like playing fast to my mind 15 minutes would be better.

I have work on saturdays and sundays. All other days are free for me because school has ended. If it would be possible to have other days speed games, I would join. Saturdays and sundays are off limits for me.

Unless you register or they start an Emerald-only tourney, I think pretty much every day is off limits to you.
