If you happened to stumble here by chance, this is a thread of a tournament exclusively for the Commissioners of the Star Realms League (Season 31), which is NOT an official part of the League itself.

Hello Commissioners, and welcome to the nineteenth Commissioners Tournament!

As always, please check in here and subscribe to this thread to be kept updated.

We have the potential for 14 participants this year. I'll quickly outline the structure for everyone as it works slightly differently from the standard league.

The initial part of the tournament will be a round robin where everybody will play everybody else in one-match rounds. We'll play as many rounds as we need to accomplish this (which is either N-1 rounds or N rounds depending on whether there's a bye player). As this is significantly more rounds than occur in a standard league division, play will be accelerated by posting and playing two rounds at a time.

New rounds will be posted when at least one of the below criteria has been met:
* all matches are complete
* two or fewer matches are remaining at three days or greater
* no player has more than once match remaining at four days or greater

At the conclusion of the round robin, the top 8 players will play in a single-elimination tournament where each round is best two-out-of-three matches. The winner of this will be declared the Commissioners Tournament Champion!

All other standard league rules apply including resolving preference differences and tiebreaker rules.

Once everybody checks in, we'll get the first two rounds rolling.

Any questions or comments, please let me know. Good luck!

I couldn't believe it when I typed it, but this is the 19th Commissioners nee DC Tournament!

That means that Season 32's tournament will be the twentieth iteration. As some of you may recall, we had a vote for the tenth tournament that resulted in completely random preferences for the playoffs.

I'm going to open the forum here for suggestions. What would you like to see for the twentieth anniversary of the tournament? Don't hold anything back. It can be as crazy as you guys want it to be so long as it's feasible to administer. Once we have some ideas, we can either agree to one or hold a vote for the top few.

In, NP.

Crazy ideas for next seasons tourney? Hmm...

Best-of-SEVEN for each round of round robin!

Backwards preferences! We all choose our LEAST favorite and are FORCED to play it. Maybe 2-game series with one game in each player's hated format with the potential for ties.

Faction Battles: Players select a faction (or 2?) to play each round. Maybe for the entire season? They are only allowed to purchase those color(s) in their matches.

Teams: Pair players with each other (best record in DC tourney pairs with worst record or something) and battle against other teams.

Ultimate Crazy: just combine all the above options into one I-N-S-A-N-E tourney!

Is there a policy for haitus-DCs competing? I would be happy to participate, but don't want to create a bye / slow the tournament down if I'm not earning my keep!

We've had several instances of that. Enthusiasm should be rewarded, IMO. thumbsup

I for one hate BYEs - perhaps I shouldn't as that's a W there - but the more we are, the better the tourney is so that easily trumps the previous.

What do you think this is? The PGL? Oh wait, the PGL only has best-of-five matches. Though we could do a mini-PGL. Hmmm....

If we did this, the only person with a normal preference would be Alex.

So red and green only for everybody?

This could be interesting, depending on how we implemented it. 2v2 fully connected? 3v3 one game each, best of three?

It would create a bye, but the more the merrier! All you have to do is play, and you'll be earning your keep.

If no one objects I would be happy to play NP-NP.

Hey everybody!

I wanted to start this today, but I'm not going to have enough time to get it going. Plus, I believe we're still short a check-in, so that will give them another day to report in here.

We'll get this rolling tomorrow morning. Thanks for your patience!
