I don't think the smaller ones had staff sitting in on the game but relied more on everyone being honest and the winner would sign their name in the thread to let the staff know they had won.

I guess it all comes down to how many people sign up/show up as to how each game is set up. If enough people show up for a game like COD then you may need to have 2 matches, then the top half of each go into a final?
Creech told me that he was holding the Cod 4 tournament up and it was easier because it was only one time.

In VGO we are going to have many match-ups going on and maybe even at the same time.

The teams will be given a time limit (probably a week) to complete an event, for example Call of Duty match. If during that time (week) the teams can not get a game set up, they will both get a lose for that event. In other words there will be no medal awarded to either team and both teams' chances to be #1 in the end gets a little worse.

We need to get the rules set up and I'll open a sign-up thread soon.

People from USA and UK will be divided into smaller teams. People from around the world will be playing either for their own country (if they have enough contestants) or their continent.

USA will be divided into time zones. Time zones are PT, MT, CT, ET.

I have no clue how we could divide UK so please give some suggestions fellow Europeans!

So far, sounds good. A week should be plenty of time to complete an event. BAR4D's suggestion for splitting up the UK/Europe seems ideal. And the four teams for the U.S. (based on time zones) is a great idea. Who else is on the East Coast?

I know the VGO is first in the poll (barely), but I agree with Doug's initial sentiment that we shouldn't start with it. There's a lot to work out which will take awhile, and this thread has evidenced that attitudes will only complicate things (both impatience and "nationalism").

In theory it might be a good idea to have the 1v1 tournament starting in April, use that to test the set up for time zones, get any problematic rules corrected and test honest self reporting as a means of tracking scores. Have the VGO start up in July and August when schedules are a little freer for those of us who are in school (making setting up times easier) and just go to town.

I had suggested this in the thread earlier but it seemed to get lost amongst all the excitement. We shouldn't jump into something so complex when the ambassador 'program' is in its infancy.

I know I said that I'd leave, but....

I voted for the olympics, but if it makes an ounce of difference I'd like my vote to be unofficially taken back (seeing as I see no way to change it in the actual poll) and put it towards the 1 on 1 thing. I've changed my mind and agree now with the people saying to do the smaller event first. See how easily people can get matched up before doing anything quite so massive.

Sounds good to me too. Even though someone else needs to run the VGO if it will start in the summer since I will have to leave to the army in July and I will rarely be on until 2014.

That can be worked out later. It shouldn't be too hard though. There's plenty of people who would fit the criteria to manage it (staff and members alike).

We will be managing the Ambassador program with Yunder from now on. If he is up for the task then he can run the VGO as well as other things related to the program while I'm gone.

So have we decided to go with the 1v1 tournament now?

Seems like it. Now to figure out the semantics. I imagine discussion would be in the order of format first, then game(s), then ruleset. Should we have that discussion in a new thread?

Well the games should be posted here:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=422495

Format and rules have been hashed out before, but probably need to be re-posted to get everyone on the same page. Then it comes down to signups and bracketing.

I'm currently out of city but when I'll get back, I will create the sign up thread for the 1v1 tourney and will list the rules in there so we can kick this off in April
