There have been requests that I organize a tournament in Singapore. I've been wanting to looking into it for some time. Running and keeping track of everything can be well pretty shitty. I got to get some standards first like energy bar and time/round first. Thinking of doing it on the PS2 at someone's place or whoever has that hospitality spirit. I've been looking into doing it like the US Fencing Association. I'm running experiments with this program called Point Control. I'm replacing touche's with rounds won. It sort of suits VF. You can't have more than 5 touche's in fencing. In VF, the maximum is 5 rounds won/9 maximum. That is if I choose make it go that long. Looks promising for the time being. The reason that I decide to count the individual rounds won is that this encourages players not to hold back. Every round won will determine points which will determine ranking and seeding for the direct elimination (DE). Every player will start with a ranking of U or unrated and will progress, depending on whether there are future tournaments, from E to A. If it is really going to be that thorough, the tournament will comprise of 2 get-togethers. 1st one is the seeding. 2nd will be the DE. The minimum no. of players I need will be 6-7. Just enough to form 1 pool for seeding. If there are more than 1 pool of players, I will definitely need the help of someone and possibly hold it simultaneously at another location. Just need some feedback on this system. Oh BTW, for anyone interested in holding a tournament. Point Control can be downloaded at www.pointcontrol.com It prints out player(fencer) pools, DE seeding brackets and DE score entries. Excellent stuff for anyone who wants to manage a tournament. Of course you will need a PC or laptop + printer on the location of the tournament.
