If the US/UK end up still being really overpowered you could possibly break them down into west/east or north/south. Just a thought...
This is probably what we will end up doing.
I wouldn't still go with Scandinavian countries alltogether since I'm afraid of Norwegian Vikings

I have always liked your ideas, Doug so I'm trying to understand this^
(yeah I'm having lunch break and didn't give much thought into reading it properly lol)

Let's say we have different events for different genres.
For example Music (RB/GH), FPS (CoD, BF), Racing (Forza, NFS) etc.

Your suggestion was to have MAX 2 people from each country for each event, right? And if a country runs out of competitors for events, the same competitor could do multiple events, right?

That would sound good to me if it's even close to what you actually meant

I think we should have a minimum number of participants for a country in order to include them in the VGO.

Yeah, that's the gist of it. Say that we get 10 people for Team UK, only two team members would be able to race in Forza. It would prevent situations where one country just runs the podium by having far more members than any other team.

A minimum of 4 members per team might be a good idea, since if we do team events like band v. band or team deathmatch, it is possible to field an entire team. However, we should be allowed to recruit if we find that we are going to be short, and a team with only one member should not be barred from competing in solo events, just the team events.

I will be behind any tournament that runs, I just feel we should build towards this. I'm not saying that this will happen, but if people let us down or for whatever reason this doesn't work it would probably mean that it wouldn't be attempted again.

I think it should be kept simple at first so we can see how things go on a smaller/less complex scale.

Perhaps time zones could be a good way to do it.

Sounds good. I guess it's just me being Finnish but I didn't fully get that last part What do you mean "a team with only one member"?

If we are going to have a minimum of 4 members then we shouldn't get teams with only one member, right?

Yeah you're waiting on the list to be given out the award Creech should get around it soon.

Time zones could be a good way to do what?

That got me to think about what kind of events would the VGO have. If we're going to have events where both contestants need to be present at the same time we might run into problems with the time zones.

For example let's say we would do the band vs. band event.
Team Puerto Rico vs. Team New Zealand

Puerto Rico local time is 06.30 AM
New Zealand local time is 11.30 PM

If people are working or going to school during the day it might be quite hard to find a good time for the event.

Just something to think about.

I'd say that if people want to play on a team with only one member, they should be allowed. So if you wanted to single handedly represent Finland, you could. Forza races, Guitar Hero 1v1, Crash Course races and such could all be done solo, but a team with only one member would not be able to do any Band v. Band or team deathmatch sort of things. They'll end up being able to show off, but they probably won't top the medal count.

It would be fair to let a One Man Army compete, yes, but then again how would we determine the winners in the end? One man team wouldn't have a chance to win most gold medals because of the events that require more than 1 person.

Team with the most medals makes sense. If there is a tie, team with the most gold medals. Like I said, a one man army could compete, they just would be unlikely to make the podium for the overall competition.

^ This.

I really like the VGO idea, but it will probably lead to a US vs UK match. Maybe we could split the teams by area (North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and so on...), just my 2 cents

A 6v6... Really Jacob? No. 2v2 is the best I'm willing to do. Because you'll just have the other 5 people carry you around on a throne. We can duel to the death in Black Ops. #GoldFamas

It's not that we're hating on you guys, we just don't want everyone else thinking we need your help

And in response to this, I still think smaller regions (depending on userbase size) would be ideal. Both the US and UK could probably be split up into smaller areas (at least in half) while most of the eastern countries could be combined.

And in response to this, I still think smaller regions (depending on userbase size) would be ideal. Both the US and UK could probably be split up into smaller areas (at least in half) while most of the eastern countries could be combined.
Without the US, Canada would be no one's hat. I kid, I kid. In all seriousness, we could break it up by continents just in case someone is playing from Antarctica.





I think Canada and America need each other.

We've got Bioware, Maple Syrup, and Poutine, speak for yourself

EDIT: I still think "region by population" is better than just generic continent. If we do continents it'll just end up being NA vs EU. The handful of people from SA, Asia, and Australia (I've yet to see someone on here from Africa) are going to have a horrible time by themselves.

That is true. I guess it will just depend on how many people sign up and from how many different countries.

I live in Maine, so we have maple syrup and poutine, too. It becomes very hard to tell what is Canadian and what is American this far north.

Im sure Canadians will find a way to still dislike you as a person.

I've never been to the eastern US (although I'd like to), so I'm going to assume it's because you're so close to Quebec. I've been to North Dakota, Montana, and Alaska (along with a few non-border states) and I've always had to be careful how I order. The worst possible way a Canadian could screw themselves over would be to order Fish and Chips, and Iced Tea .

Not meaning to insult, it's just hilarious.

I really need to start watching that again!

And to anyone that takes offense to Doug's quote, don't worry about it. The show it's taken from spends 90% of it's time making fun of Canada.
