Currently there are 7 players rated in C6. There are going to be a lot of C6 games going on in the game room the next month

That's a good idea marshall. I sent dweebo a message asking him to implement it.

And if anyone wants to get up to 20 games, I'm always willing to help.

I am as well. I have something close to 200 games counting turn-based, but maybe a quarter of that is live or counts... so if I'm on and you want to play, message me.

I don't like the idea of having turn-based games in connect6 count towards the tournament.

I'd rather we just do away with the 20 game requirement for the 1st tournament, to get more people playing. But I guess I'll leave that up to karl, he's running it.

In addition to the Connect6 gold crown for the winner of this upcoming tournament, I'd also like to give away a DSG shirt to the winner, and a DSG mug to the runner up!


I'll also give away another DSG mug with a lottery type system. For every match you play in you get 1 entry in the lottery. Then I'll randomly pick a winner. So as you can see, the longer you stay in the tournament, the better your chances of winning the lottery mug! I think this idea comes from up2ng who suggested it long ago in one of our tournament idea discussions, so thanks Dean, I didn't forget.

Lets try and make this a decent sized tournament, there are alot of good c6 players out there who don't play much here, find them and invite them! If you have a web page or blog, or myspace page or whatever, link to the tournament page with "Connect 6 tournament" text, that will drive more people here (anyone searching for connect6 and tournament will find this tournament easily).

I'd like to ask what happens if the games aren't finished in time? Like after one week out of 2 there are only 1 one and half matches played...

Then everybody forfeits and I win.

I just sent an e-mail out to everyone giving them information about the tournament and the 2-week deadline. I will probably extend this 1st round a couple days, but after that I will start handing out the forfeits. Because I opened this tournament to provisional players, there'll be a lot more no-shows than usual, I imagine.

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.
