ThreeV3 Championship 10 August Planning Thread

I want to ensure I am as prepared as possible to make things more smooth than last time. So what are the checklist of things to look out for or need to be ready?

Servers set to exact conditions for both championships. Teams placed in server name. Server admin accounts added and checked. Simple g_nextlevel should suffice to change to next map. Maps not set to start until 4 players. Next up is the streaming software setup. Idea is to play both championships Saturday with Sunday as a fallback for the Third Place Championship.

This is a very very rough draft of what I have so far. The videos are going to be done all at once for the edited recordings. Focus today is on the livestreams.

The format with the eleven teams that participated in the bracket got a bit confusing. The bracket will not let me set it up as intended.

First on Sunday night before the tournament Mostly Heartless Team 2 battled Wolverines Rebirth Mercenary team. Then BAA Mercenaries took on Mostly Heartless 3 on Friday night. Wolverines Rebirth took on Mercenary Team on Saturday.

We lost Wolverines Rebirth due to time issues on Saturday.

Chaos “Mega Battle” Sunday 18 August

I cleaned this up a bit-edited.

Need advertising, structure, confirmation of player participation, a set start time, etc.

And having HPG host the games might be an issue?

Ok. The video footage would help promote the second part. The editing is a huge undertaking. The matches I missed are on twitch on other peoples streams. Those might already be gone. If not kindly ask them to upload highlights to youtube?

Tonnage based clantech matches to mixtech. Ok lets look at that. Done. Final map 5 on Championship from clan tons to mixed tons. Probably good for flexibility.

Server map changes-should be taken care of with the rcon revisited. Plus the rotations are now specific to the server. Teams have the server named after them so its easier to know where to go. Still, test the rcon ahead of time, test the d/ls?

On screen graphic or custom image could help with that. Something even like this team has 2 rounds won 1 round loss. A leader board and the teams in the finals are the “undefeated” or highest number of rounds won.

There was no central information place like a leaderboard/google doc to report to. That led to a lack of information to the event runner.

Yep an official leaderboard/bracket even for the last 4 teams is good and desired.

Players got turned away- that CANNOT happen again. Period. Having one of the volunteers keep an eye on flow of players. Hey event leader so and so needs a team/spot. My server is empty or has just completed my thing I’m ready for new teams.

tie a browser source into a "three v3 google sheet “calc”. Easy and crucial improvement.

Even just a short meeting to organize who is covering what and general setup to streamline the streams.

Probably could hand out that kind of permission to most of Chaos main player base at least for events.

IDEA: Leaderboard could doulble as en event status page for the event organizer. Server 1 Status, Maps, Needed service, questions for drop leaders etc. What about timers?

More Cbill limits, after this 3v3 is wrapped up the fall one is all or primarliy cbill limits. If there is any remaining tons drops they will be minority. We got good feedback on the mixture and on being cbill only. So that is something to revisit. But tons as the main way, at least for the ThreeV3s are on the way out or already are done.

Call in the volunteer troops. I took on way too much last time and it is going to take work to fix this.

Get set yeses on if people can help or make it.

Have a backup plan ready to implement.

Need 4 teams to fix the bracket and finish this.

Implement a partial double bracket scenario.

Keeping in mind the limitations in time we have-this has to wrap in a day in a few hours at most.

And having an open seed round robin … do we have time for that? I keep hearing before this current event that 3v3 could be played more. Got the anniversary dates coming up could tack that onto the Friday before. Concentrate on the Championships only and make sure they are great?

Or even just get out of my own way and finish this the way eveybody wants…

This is gonna be a huge turning point if this is the wrong call.

Best 2/3 Semi tying in seeding while giving teams a warmup while second chance to the championship?

Go Cbill base limit only (maybe 1 map for tons for old time sake?)

Best 3/5 main championships?

Ouch that is 16 games to play in one day… hard enough that that the Third Place takes place during the championship.

Still hear me out self…

WR vs SA? 2/3

CJF vs SJ 2/3

SA vs SJ 3/5 Championship

WR/CJF 3/5 Third Place Championship

alternative if we don’t have a full team

SA with CJF/WR all stars Championship

Third Place Game WR/CJF

alternative if we lose a team

CJF vs WR 2/3 or 3/5 “EARLY” before Championship

winner gets back into the finals

SJ vs CJF/WR 3/5 Championship

All cbill based. Teams pick their maps. 2 for each team. One map is known ahead of time. Cbill limits are also set ahead of time, in order. Supervisor sets the map order.

Map block?

Then let other teams round robin on a third server. Maybe set a “late night” semi organized thingy after?

NO gonna be tired from doing the championships right.

If other teams that participated want to get another shot they could play as double elimination bracket. But for the seeding aspect for November.

WR/CJF in Third Place Championship could fight for the number 1/2/3 seed in November. Yeah that could work. Puts something on the line. Champions maybe get 1 or 2 and third place team gets 1 or 3?

Ok so I think thats a do able plan. But who has the patience, time, and skills to work with me on this?

I need to have volunteers to help get confirmations from the teams and players.

I need advertisers.

I need streamers.

I need announcers.

I need 1-2 supervisors.

I need 1 12VR server either as the main thing or as backup.

The big thing might be this leaderboard thing. If we make a good one other people could adopt it for their events. And we would have it for the future like the sign up sheet we made.

Teams and their current total match wins.

Their current opponents and their current server.

Current team members.

Their prior opponents and scores.

Current match supervisor for each server.

A section for “notes” or hey event person this needs your attention.

Current in progress match score.

So basically we need an online Chaos “battlelog” style thingy but cleaned up.

Bracket on Chalonge with a livestream card (we had this last 2 times) to track overall progress.

and then a decision. Go all out on the format changes? Keep the current rounds? … I hope I am right about this.

New format.

Hmm I never handed out drop calcs this round… that would be helpful to teams AND it could help track progress…

Championship

Plus double elimination within our limits. If we roll all 4 teams,

CJF has a loss.

WR has a loss.

SA has no loss.

SJ has no loss.

Best 2/3 quick round OR maybe maps won/lost over 2.

If 2/3 is too many maps takes too long then,

This format introduces map change issues and issues over a team choosing “bad” map.

Format 1 winner is Third Place finisher and gets a high seed in November.

this is traditional and can run parallel. But no double elimination factor… and this is if we have all 4 teams.
