Esturkdq4's Tournament #1:Best RPG Tournament

Recommended Posts

Well, for the First Tournament, I've decided to do something simple. Since this site is about Dragon Quest, which is an RPG, I figured that a Best RPG Tourney would work well.

 

The Nominations are very simple. Everyone get's 10 games to nominate, and each game needs 4 Nominations to get in the tournament. The quicker a game get's 4 Nominations, the better seed it get's. There will be 64 Games in the Tournament.

 

If anyone has any other questions, just ask.

 

UPDATED NOMINATIONS LIST:

#1 Seeds:Dragon Quest III, Dragon Quest V, Dragon Quest IV, Dragon Quest VIII, Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Secret of Evermore

 

#2 Seeds:Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy VII, Super Mario RPG, Terranigma, Dragon Quest VI, Final Fantasy Tactics, Seiken Densetsu 3

 

#3 Seeds:Golden Sun, LOZ:Link to the Past, Dragon Quest VII, Final Fantasy:Mystic Quest, Ultima 7, Arcanum, Fallout 2, Suikoden V

 

#4 Seeds:Suikoden III, Grandia, Dragon Quest Monsters II, Puzzle Quest, Pokemon Ruby, Dark Cloud 2, Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy III

 

#5 Seeds:Pokemon Diamond, Final Fantasy X, Paper Mario:TTYD, Fire Emblem, Fire Emblem:Sacred Stones, Star Ocean 2, Live A Live, Bahamut Lagoon

 

#6 Seeds:Lufia II, LOZ:Ocarina of Time, Breath of Fire III, Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy XII, Crystalis, Breath of Fire II, 7th Saga

 

#7 Seeds:Dragon Quest, Xenogears, Wild Arms, Final Fantasy IX, Illusion of Gaia, Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal, Dragon Quest Monsters, Dragon Quest Monsters III:Caravan Hearts

 

#8 Seeds:Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy V, Rune Factory, Mother, Mother 3, LOZ:Majora's Mask, Romancing SaGa, & SaGa Frontier

that's cool and all, but I want everyone to NOMINATE 10 GAMES, because if everyone just does one game a piece, it would take forever to get 64 games. Unless, you all want to just nominate a bunch of games once and have a 128 or 256 Tournament Field, with matchups at random? Then, it would stay 10 Nominations per person for 256, or 5 for 128.

 

I do not care either way though.

 

Oh, and all Nominations will be updated in the 1st Post.

Let's see. You want 64 games. They need 3 votes each. That's 64*3=192 nominations. Which means that they must come from 19-20 people. I can tell you from past experience you're not going to get 19-20 different people to post in this topic. When you're ready, I suggest taking all those games that have 1 or 2 nominations and filling in the other lower seeds with them. Even now you only have 46 unique games listed. When you think about it, that's A LOT of RPGs!

Agreed, and it's actually 4 nominations per game, so it would take 26 people voting for the same 64 games. That's just not going to happen. There's 11 so far, it might get up to about 15-20 people if it stays open for quite awhile, but they certainly wont be voting for the same 64 games.

 

So you're either going to need to lower the nomination requirements like Platty said or go with 32 games instead.

True, true. That thought came to mind, so what I'm going to do is this. Anyone, whether having already nominated or not, nominate 5 games(So, the next 3 people to post) that haven't been nominated yet. I'll add those 15 to the 49 already nominated, making it 64. Then start the tournament.
