I'm hoping to run a tournament in the UK more like the US style tournaments, quite similar to how I see PAPA tournaments used to be ran. Just to see how the format is accepted.
From a bank of 10 games, you play 5 games on your ticket and these scores are ranked per machine and then totalled producing your final score. Players can buy as many entries as they wish in the qualifying period (8 hrs). players scores will remain in the system and contribute to the ranking - but, obviously, only the players highest finishing position will be used for final rankings.
After the qualifying period the top 16 players will then go through to the Q-Finals and play in 4 groups of 4 over 3 games, PAPA style scoring, with the top 2 from each group progressing to SF, where the format is repeated to give a final 4.
Now, I can write an excel spreadsheet (the limit of my programming ability ) to cope with this format, but was wondering if this was already out there and available for use by anyone?
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Ta
