Unofficial tournament suggestion

(Sorry for my english, I'm not a native-speaker and I'm posting this right out of a working day started at 4am..)

The olympics-type tournament made me think of a different kind of tournament.

How about a championship-type tournament instead of play-offs?

Here's a more precise description.
Let's say we make groups of eight people (not necessarily premium only, but requiring at least 500 played games): let's start with three groups: one A with good players, one B with average players, one C with bad players.
Each group of eight players got to play ten games (I say over a month, because, and that's the main difficulty, some players can't be there everyday, of course, but with active players, it could be done within a few days, the main point is being able to have the eight players agreeing on playing at the same time): the position in each game gives points, which are added.

When the ten games have been played: in each group, the two players with the most added points can go into a higher group while the last two players go down a group.
Here's an example :

  • Group A: 1A(first of A group),2A,3A,4A,5A,6A,7A,8A
  • Group B: 1B,2B,3B,4B,5B,6B,7B,8B
  • Group C: 1C,2C,3C,4C,5C,6C,7C,8C

After the ten games, changes are made:

  • Group A: 1A,2A,3A,4A,5A,6A,1B,2B
  • Group B: 1C,2C,3B,4B,5B,6B,7A,8A
  • Group C: 7B,8B,3C,4C,5C,6C,7C,8C

And it starts over.

As for the organisation, it could be easy to create new "lower" groups each time some new players want to get into such a tournament. Starting would be pretty easy, I guess it would only need twenty-four players to subscribe (randomly parted within groups, or according to ranks).
And of course we agree on giving Tobi a ten points malus on each "season" to be fair.

Of course, this is just an example, as long as enough people want to play them, there may be more or less people in groups, more or less games, different kind of items championship, 1vs1 championship.. But I think a first test would be adequate such as I said, with three groups of eight people playing ten games whenever they can, with, I don't know, thin or none item. (OR, a 1vs1 championship, with each player playing once against every other seven players in his group, and one point for each victory).
End of my suggestion.
If people are interested, I could help to organize and make rules which cover every possibility.
Discuss.

Good initiative! I think that would be a fun thing to try. I can also help organizing it etc. I'm glad to help!

What does the moderators say?
