    Cool, thanks. The thing about escalate doubles is they can often be played and won like a singles even with a bad partner. The co-operation required is minimal though always helpful and +EV. I liked the idea of getting randomly paired with a partner who could become a new friend. That's how i met Pinzky as an example, in a S.A. tournament doubles game (that we lost but co-operated and played well togethor), now he joins my teams once and awhile.

    Maybe the next one I'll make the opening round dubs

    Incase i've spammed away the important news:
    TOURNAMENTS OPEN NOW WITH FREE POINTS ADDED TO THE PRIZE POOL. More to be hosted. Called "number1"


    Though that was a 6 player doubles that i met Pinzky in and i think 6 player would definetly require good co-operation to be competative. I think it would need to be atleast 8 players and not any of the very largest maps to go by my theory of "can often be played and won like a singles even with a bad partner." And i am starting to lean towards your disfavor of tournament team games, especially the larger the team size. I think they are a terrible idea that could lead to disputes and strong opinions, or the bad luck of having teamates who just don't care at all. Sure they are good for UDO's and medal hunting but i don't think it's worth it. I won't be joining anymore i think. For games like that you need players who have an understanding of each other or atleast a willingness to try to co-operate by choosing to team up. For some reason though i just don't think doubles are quite as bad especially if the game settings allow you to be competitive without a partners help.

    Tournaments have filled up very fast lately and there is only four larger sized tournaments open right now. If anyone wanted to host a tournament that they like in the 16-30 player range it would probably fill up fast .

    I know a lot of players like the same thing, exclusively, but they dont check tournaments regularly coz most tournaments are not 2 player games... so when a 4 rounds of 2 player games 16 player tournament pops up they're too late to join
    (Ive been sending them headsups for 16p tourneys)

    solution; 5 rounds of 2 player games = 32 players, doesnt fill up as fast, so everybody has time to join
    In fact, this is probly good for paid membership
    If you only like 2 player tournaments and you're always too late to join them, why pay for membership?
    Can we make 32 players the default number for 2 player games tournaments?

    You can't play in tournaments without paying for strategist level at least.

    OK, 2 things for everyone following the 'Number1' tournament series. I made another one, but messed it up. Asked Sheriff or MrMarcos to delete it, so DON'T JOIN IT! Will be remaking it when the messed up one is gone.

    Second, Big Congrats to Spirop on winning Number1 Edition 2! 250 points added to his score.

    So there's this tournament idea I fear.
    I doubt anyone could handle the mindfuck
    12 domains
    2 player games.
    32 players.
    5 rounds
    all different settings

    3 path flat
    3 border esca
    1 anywhere lite
    no reinfs flat
    no reinfs esca


    plz don't, this is torture.
    what would make it even worse is ... not waterboarding; what would make it worse is starting this tournament while other tournaments also have 12do rounds (currently Im in two 4 player tournament games, one of them no reinfs, the other 1 anywh... drives me crazy, right Pinzky?
