I'm from Las Vegas and there's a group of us that are thinking about starting up a tournament league. My idea so far combines a few of the things I've read online.

We will have one set of War, Devastation, and Fate. Week 1 we will roll off to determine pick order. Each person will get a list of all characters available (60 ish). Starting from the first pick, the player will pick a character, and we will snake draft until each player has 3 characters. Everyone gets paired up randomly and is assigned an opponent.

Battles will consist of 1 on 1 fights between players. Each player decides on one character for the opponent and bans them from play. Then, each player takes their list and crosses off the characters that they used, so each player can never use a character more than once.

Battles commence by each player secretly picking their fighter. The loser has thier fighter knocked out. Then, each player plays the other character. The loser is knocked out. If both players still have a character left alive, they fight. Each player gets one point for each round they win.

Points are then tallied, and the next round will be drafted starting with the last place player and going up. No one can pick a character they have previously used, which is why the list is handy to have. At the end of 4-5 rounds, we will cut to Top 4. Top cuts will have the same lists from the swiss rounds. The player in first gets first draft this time, and plays against the player in 4th. Top 2 is the same as the other rounds except players draft 5 characters and ban 2. Players play the first match by deciding secretly, then the second using the two characters that were left, then the third match is played with the last. If a player goes 3-0 they win. If not, the player with one character left plays that character. The other players chooses. When one player has no fighters left, they win.

We're thinking about playing one round a every other week. That would give enough time to let people research characters etc. Using the list will let characters play many different fighters, and make people choose to play the characters they think are the strongest early on, use them as ban bait, or save them for the final rounds to help them win there.

What does everyone think? Any suggestions or ideas?
