OK

Before I get down to the nuts and bolts, I just wanted to express
why I'd rather run the tournament on GOLD rather than TROOPERS:

Don't like DJT because
1) DJ Troopers has stupid black anothers. They're difficult in stupid ways, and its a constant reminder of why I hate IIDX now.
(LOLOL EVERYTHING IS A 12.)
2) I wasn't a fan of the song selection on DJT, most of the songs (save ICARUS and Digitank System) were very very forgettable.
3) The CS songs weren't THAT great.

I like GOLD because
1) We ALSO didn't have it last year (just Happy Sky and DistorteD)
2) Good variety of songs (and good revivals), fun charts.
3) The CS songs, oh my god. GOLDEN CROSS, BITCHES!
4) Did I mention GOLDEN CROSS?

If anyone has an educated opinion on Troopers over GOLD thats not "It's the new mix," I'll happily debate it. (I'm looking at you, John 8))

***TENTATIVE TOURNAMENT RULES***


Similar to the format I've used in previous tournaments, it goes as follows:

Double elimination,
Qualifier song determines seeding/brackets (song will be chosen by me day of tournament)

*****CONTROLLERS WILL BE PROVIDED, WE HAVE KOCS BUT I WILL TRY TO PROVIDE ASCS IF THATS MORE DESIRABLE*****

Regarding mods:

*****RANDOM AND SUDDEN+ ARE ALLOWED AND HEAVILY ENCOURAGED*****

*****HARD MODE IS FINE TOO, BUT IF YOU FAIL MID-SONG THATS THE SCORE YOU TAKE*****

No Easy Mode
No Autoscratch
No 5key
No Srandom/Random+ (if you REALLY want to use S-random and both players agree to it I'll try and work it out.)
No Regul speed

Anything else seems ok with me, if you want to turn BG vids off, go ahead, AAA EX counter, fine too. As long as it doesn't compromise
the fairness of a match its cool.

Rounds will go something like this:
After seeding/brackets have been done, players will go head to head (1 tv per player) and play 2 songs. Each player
will get to choose one of the two songs played (difficulty of songs depends on the round.) After each song is played I'll record
the scores (DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING AND MOVE OUT OF THE SCREEN THAT SHOWS YOUR SCORE I WILL BE ANGRY/EMO/BUTTHURT AND I DONT WANT ANY DO-OVERS.) Both scores from each player will be added up, and the person with the most EX points wins, loser goes to loser's bracket. In the loser's bracket, winner advances, loser is eliminated. In the rare event of a tie or some other weird mixup, I'll get creative 8) 


Difficulty of songs are as follows:
*****REALISTICALLY THE LOWEST DIFFICULTY OF SONG YOU CHOOSE SHOULD BE 8s*****

Qualifier will most likely be a 9 on hyper

1st round:
Capped at 10s

2nd round:
Capped at 11s

3rd round/semi finals/etc:
Anything goes, enjoy your 12s.

Finals: A custom course of my personal favorites, top score takes 1st place 8)

I like this style because I want each player to play their best game, what better than to let them pick the songs?
That way if you get slammed on your opponent's song choice, you have a chance to fight back with your best song.

OH YEAH PRIZES ARE COMING GUYS, NOT LIKE LAST YEAR. TO BE DETERMINED :O

(P.S I owe Kay0ss & CHKN prizes from a mixup last year, come see me or Richard in private)

Nobody probably remembers me but I organized a DDR tournament in 05, which got shot down. And last year On Campus Entertainment pretty much gave everyone the finger by saying NO arcade game tournaments will ever ever happen, ever (at least on their machines.) Whatever, it's their property so they can do what they want.

I am a big bemani addict and was considering running a sponsored,  multi-division Beatmania IIDX tournament at FanimeCon07. (If I'm approved I will provide a seperate thread) Divisions will be set up so just about anyone with some IIDX experience can enter. However the expert division will have bigger prizes.

1, is the sponsorship a good alternative? I remember cash entry being a big issue, and with the whole liability thing I'd just assume skip past that. Free entrance since you're already paying 50 bucks to get into fanime. The only one at stake with sponsored prizes would be me and my sponsor, and if I lock up the prizes in my room I don't see that as a problem.

2, what is the legit way to set this up with convention staff? Who do I have to contact to tell them that X sponsor is coming on X day and may want to set up a booth for the con as well? (that way I get to have a kickass tournament, the vendor gets publicity and it makes fanime a little bit cooler, everyone wins)

Please give feedback and if all goes through I will have a dedicated thread on here, and bemanistyle as well.
