    [Grand RP Tournament] Xmas Edition - Feedback and Discussion




    Ok, this time around I decided it would be cool to have a thread where you can give feedback on the tournament and how it could have worked out better. Basically, I want people to give me ideas and critique that will help organized future tournaments. Anything that can help is welcomed! Just give us your opinion!


    PS- This thread will follow the Global Rules of NB so don't bash, flame or insult anyone.

    It was nicely organized, the discussions being held outside of the battle arena even without spoilers or whatever related to it, couldn't be done any better, you did great job Scorps, also thumbs up to Riku and Vincent helping you out with judging of course.

    Just thought I'd add that maybe the 3 votes thing could be done from the beginning, to avoid possible accusations of biasness or anything of that matter. Other than that, nothing to complain about. Great job.

    The thing which lacked, IMHO, was loser's bracket.
    Another thing, if from next tourneys the time-period of each fight could be increased from 7 to 10-12 days or something then everyone would have enough time to think and make counters, instead of making counters in hurry. That's my opinion.
    Rest everything was perfect.

    Well, I like this but too much bother from the first round itself. Maybe after the first 2 rounds would be fine.

    No. I specifically have seen our village tourny. Longer time drags the tournament for too long for no particular reason, and most people tend to go inactive after awhile or just loose interest.

    Weird but I disagree with both your points..
    I felt like there was no need for a losers bracket. You lose you get kicked out, more exciting that way since there's no second chance. And as for the time period, 7 days is more than enough.

    Agreed to what Anduril said and not only that, but 7 days is more than enough time to finish a fight.

    And without a Looser's brackets it forces people to go all out, You Only Loose once

    I really like the thread where you could say something was wrong with a fight and your reason why. it was way better than having to spam a mods profile for an answer

    I agree with McRazor on the bold specially.

    @General: It was smooth and worked out perfect, nice job Scorps (Also kudos to Vincent & Riku for their input on the judging)

    Re: [Grand RP Tournament] Xmas Edition - Feedback and Discussion

    I enjoyed this tournament. And the discussion thread raised a lot of good topics. But it also had some pretty petty ones. As a whole, people started reporting/sending to be checked the most trivial and futile topics, ones that could be easily be dealt with through vm. Besides, simply ignoring some minor problems and continue the fight is a option too.

    But yeah. Highlights that I can think of right now:

    1. I absolutely loved Reborn's use of a Genjutsu in his fight with Yusuke (Or something like that). The on liner was great and the way you manipulated the genjutsu was suberb and really pleasurable to read. It is quite morbid, thus it might not be as pleasurable to others. I'm just a bit twisted in the head xD

    2. So far, I've really enjoyed all my fights. I didn't know a couple of the people I faced, or, at least, it was the first time I actually took time to notice them, but I'm quite impressed. To begin with Cobalt, one of the best fights I've fought. Your custom element, Francium, is really well made. It has great characteristics that makes it stand out from other metal ce and the way you created it's jutsus is quite astonishing

    3. Scaze's fight, while shorter than Cobalt's, was quite enjoyable too. I've said it before, but your custom animal, the Batoidea, is incredibly well made and unique. It's what I always hoped to make with a summon. The techniques are so detailed and so creative, I just had to praise them. And sorry about the no-offensive jutsus restriction I put on myself xD you held your own regardless.

    4. Better was a real surprise to me. Don't want to downgrade, saying I expected little of you, it's simply coming from my own ignorance. Your style is great. I like that you started by mastering canon jutsus to max, and you're beast with them. Don't know if it was choice or you were forced to, but it made an impression on me nonetheless. Great rper.

    5. Typhoon. You wack. Nah, just kidding. Our fight was small, but I liked our taijutsu encounter. Haven't used Devious Porcupine in a while xD

    The tournament was very well organized, I enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one to happen. There were some delays in the judging, thus the reason for my Good vote. Also the three vote thing, I agree on that also. Not much to complain about, keep up the good work. A big thank you to Scorps who organized it and Riku and Vincent for their input later on.

    I actually give this tourny a 10-10.... Even though I didnt have the 3judges.. >_>
    But Scorps Ruling on my thing was right... didnt know the tiger handseal consist of two hands.. I thought it was One.
    Anywho. The fact that you take the argument to a thread and after 3 arguments the judges decide. No ifs, ands, or buts. was rather brilliant.

    10/10

    One thing that would really add to the tournament would be Scorps in a bikini with a large sign marking the rounds... Those tatas need to be let loose more often, Scorseh

    I can't wait for another tournament to pop up to be honest, it was fun to watch several fights, it's a good lesson to learn how to RP if you take the time to read.

    I think I'd like to say i agree with this post 100%

    I honestly believe it was a good tournament but because of the 3 vote rule being implemented so late it wasn't near perfect. I also think that the rules of the acquiring of prizes on your bio you're using needed to be tweaked a bit. It seemed almost impossible to try and enter the tournament to pursue a particular prize when your bio is unsuitable for it...what i mean is... It's difficult to try and have people drop bios or switch things around for the occasion with limited time, which will cause Caliburn to be overworked and be backed up in bio checking. Like trying to fill 32 or so participants within a week timeframe and your bio sits around for more than a week, thus you will be ineligible for your prize. Though, this is disregarding the "updates only clause." For what if the bio you are participating with goes against restrictions, like a cannon bio, you would have to drop it for a custom and vice versa.

    Overall, that rule itself didnt need to be "removed". Just tweaked a bit for those who needed to handle biography duties. I personally thought it was a good rule to keep it balanced and to stop people form just stacking mounds of abilities.

    Thank you Lili, I appreciate those words and thank you for them. I'll go to hell, if our fight wasn't the best in my RP career. I hope we encounter each other again. Your mushrooms are extremely well worded and the abilities are amazing. Thank you for the amazing fight we had.

    Re: [Grand RP Tournament] Xmas Edition - Feedback and Discussion

    I'd like to, for every tournament, have stated what the judges base their judgements on.
    My battle was lost because I 'used Sage Mode too early.' That's fine; good use of the Basic Five counts for something too.
    I would, however, appreciate if that was stated beforehand. It would be very simple. "We judge the fights primarily on X, secondarily on Y and tertiary on Z."
    And, like mentioned before, a losers-bracket is much needed.

    Re: [Grand RP Tournament] Xmas Edition - Feedback and Discussion

    I enjoyed reading all of these fights, inspires me to finish my training even more, so i can participate in the next ones. The only thing i feel was bad, was in the early fights, to many fights ended by forfeit or technicality. That's no fun, I canunderstand if your forfeited for rl stuff but just because you lost interest is wack. Other then that good job whoever organized it ._.

    Is this thread open for a small tournament suggestion or should just vm it?

    I agree. The three judging part made me wonder why it wasn't done from the beginning barring the inactivity.

    I concur. It shouldn't take that long to come up with a move. It takes longer typing it out than it does to actually Come up with it. .
    And it's a fact that some people try to use the time limit as a means of controlling the fight. I really think the reply time should be dropped down to a day. Because otherwise you get fights with only two moves it it and its a pain to judge things like that.

    Also didn't like the fact that there was no losers bracket simply because well you lost. Should have given it your all. And if it wasn't enough you aren't guaranteed a retry. . Shouldn't have messed up in the first place.

    Re: [Grand RP Tournament] Xmas Edition - Feedback and Discussion

    Near perfect

    1. Add the three judge option
    2. Add the loser bracket again
    3. Keep the discussion thread
    4. Let the member chose what bio they would like prize for

    5. Typhoon. You wack. Nah, just kidding. Our fight was small, but I liked our taijutsu encounter. Haven't used Devious Porcupine in a while xD
    Thanks for that again, means a lot, and to answer the question, none of my customs get apporved lol so, i had to make due with what I have, still I'm glad I made it as far as I did, Fighting you and Kirabi really helped me find out about myself as a Rper. Btw Minerva suit you in a scary way

    Great Tourney Scorps, as TO of Kumo, I actually implemented the same concept with the discussion thread and what not. Where judges can go to the discussion and see what fights need to be judged. I had fun, and next tourney Gin Ichimaru will do better.
