I believe Doug was building upon Dakisbac's idea of multiplayer, not completions. Say you and I were matched, we'd compete in Halo 4 for example. Our choice of high score in Sp. ops, 1 vs. 1 slayer, etc.

Though I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the 1st time.

Ah, okay. This makes more sense than what I was thinking. If it's true - we'll see if Doug confirms - then I definitely like the sound of this

Well, you could always try for achievements, but no, this is purely a game based thing. A lot of people always mention that they want to do a game specific tournament, but after trying to organize a few of these, it is really quite difficult to get everyone to agree on what to play and when to play it. You can get small groups together to play some popular games, but getting 16 people together to play Forza is really quite a challenge. Dak's idea just needed a little fleshing out.

Really, almost any game could be used, so long as there is some way to measure and verify the result. A speed run of a level in Splosion Man, a high score in Rock Band, etc, could all be used as a competition point. We basically have Dak's idea with a little more structure and a little less chance for disagreement between participants.

Not only that, but having the same event several times a year (ie. a variation on GSL or the Subscriber's Completion Competition) really isn't worthwhile. Having each group have a signiture competition (GSL for the main site, elimination multiplayer for the Ambassadors, Completion competition for the Subs), would be a good way of operating and mean that going full out in one competition won't hurt your chances in a future competition.

Understood, sir. I like the way you think here. I'm totally down for this idea for Competition now that it has more detail and structure to it.

Jappe, consider this!

There's another idea I have for a competition, but it would require a large number of people, so it might be best to have a few Ambassador competitions under our belts before attempting it.

The Video Game Olympics: Compete for the pride of your country in a team based competition. Basically, players come together in teams based on their home nation. So we would have Team UK, Team Canada, Team America, Team Finland, etc. Teams would compete in a variety of 1v1 and team v team type of competitions. Send 4 people in for a Team Deathmatch in Halo. Send one person in for a massive race in Forza. Put up someone (alt tags acceptable) to see who can 100% Lost Odyssey the fastest (our equivalent of the marathon).

Just the basis of an idea now, and probably way too ambitious for the first event, but might be something to try in the future.

This idea is gold. Maybe in the summer we could pull it off.

I like Dougs idea. It'll get a lot of participation because everyone has a chance to win unlike the completion challenges where there's only a handful of people who actually have a chance.

I completely forgot about Dak, just a couple weeks after he helped me out in Halo 2, how embarrassing... Sorry Dak!

Is Filter still around? I don't recall seeing him ever since I got more active again.

Can I represent the death star?

My country is the United States of America, but the question is do we represent where we were born, where we live or where we want?

Another reason why I ask the "where we want" question. I think those ground rules would establish how this idea would work.

In any case, to me, I think moving forward the multiplayer idea by Dak and refined by Doug would be an awesome first tournament. Some of the other ideas could be discussed further, along with any new ones, for potential future tournaments. Thoughts?

The Video Game Olympics: Compete for the pride of your country in a team based competition. Basically, players come together in teams based on their home nation. So we would have Team UK, Team Canada, Team America, Team Finland, etc. Teams would compete in a variety of 1v1 and team v team type of competitions. Send 4 people in for a Team Deathmatch in Halo. Send one person in for a massive race in Forza. Put up someone (alt tags acceptable) to see who can 100% Lost Odyssey the fastest (our equivalent of the marathon).

Just the basis of an idea now, and probably way too ambitious for the first event, but might be something to try in the future.

Sounds like an awesome idea! Just that there really wouldn't be a team Finland

We could do that later but let's do this more simple tournament first

So I think we are headed for the Elimination Tournament at the moment. No achievements or completions, just competiing for highest score etc.

I also like the idea of everyone posting games prior to the competitions and then the players get randomly picked as opponents and then I'll pick the game they're gonna play.

Did I understand how you guys meant it?

Must be seeing things. There is no way you could edit my post where I quoted you.

So, is this elimination tournament based on gamerscore or just a high score obtained within the game?

And apparently Corrupt's residing in prison for the time being and Grifter is unknown so they're wildcards
Also, I believe we should be "Team 'mericuh." More American.

Should there be a separate thread for us to list our games then?

Yes but if we don't count it as a Team, there will be too many on the American Team, I believe.

When we get to this tourny I think we'd ultimately end up choosing based on current residence/born/etc.

Yes, sir! It's a great idea and I think we're all leaning towards this one.
