Seasonal Masters Tournament

Question

Tyrone   

Disclaimer: I'm aware that this suggestion is technically an 'event suggestion' and should go in that thread, but's also a Vanity item suggestion, so it involves both topics simultaneously and may merit it's own thread.

 

A couple of years ago, there were a tournament series called Masters (of OU, Doubles, UU), which required qualifiers to participate in one final double elimination tournament with a grand prize.

Changes to the staff's reward policy regarding tournament prizes, has sadly resulted in this event no longer being held.

 

The format of this event is as follows:

15 Qualification Tournaments, One per week.

Winners of these Tournaments get a ticket, Runner-ups get a reserve ticket to the Grand Final.

The Grand Final is a Double Elimination Tournament, players require a ticket or reserve ticket(s) to be allowed to participate.

 

I suggest an alternative prize to the classic "Turn one of your comps into a shiny or pick a shiny starter".

 

A unique, untradeable vanity item: Only to be distributed to the winner. A season-themed Crown with special effects.

Winter: White crown, snowflakes

Spring: Green crown, flower petals

Summer: Red crown, sunrays

Autumn: Orange crown, leaves

 

In combination with a grand prize of 25M pokeyen for the winner and 5M to the runner-up.

Spoiler

latest?cb=20130628004303

This is the runescape design idea for the crown of seasons, which I used as reference.

You might be thinking: Tyrone, prize pool of 30M is insane, no way that will happen!

But here's the solution: The 15 Qualifying Tournaments will require a 25k pokeyen registration fee (64 man)!

Quick maffs: 25k * 64 players * 15 Tournaments = 24 Million yen sunk in participation fees.

So the effect on the economy is 6M yen, spread over 16 PvP events, which is less pokeyen influx than any current event (exception being CC) being held.

 

The requirements for this event would be:

@Darkshade making 4 awesome crowns.

A staff member willing to organise the Qualifiers and host the Grand Finals every season.

@Squirtle to approve the event idea.

The PvP Community's active participation.

 

Feel free to leave feedback on the idea and suggest improvements.

This would also bring alot of the silph hype back!

It would only be the Grand Final though.

Qualifiers should be held using the Tournament System.

i mean, why not have the qualifiers there too? it makes things alot more interesting, and ofc, this is a seasonal event, which i think would make this event a even more hyped thing if its in silph

Because the qualifier participation fee of 25k requires the automated system.

Also getting refs for an event every week might be problematic with relatively low staff members now as opposed to some years ago.

It's just more convenient to hold those on the system honestly.

I love this idea. I was thinking about something like this, but this has a lot of other little details in place that I didn't think of.

 

I'll see what I can do :)

agree on everything but this. It should be something the winner gets, not to sell, but to show off.

it should be the winners choice. taking away the winners choice is wrong

Tradable would defeat the purpose for having a unique vanity as tournament reward.

The prize money is high enough already to obtain value from the victory.

 

Crowns were just an idea, but since there are no crowns in game at the moment I think it would fit.

What alternative vanity do you have in mind?

listen i would keep it and never trade it if i won the vanity prize, but thats my choice. if you take away their choice you are making it for them.

let ds go nuts, make a ton of cool looking shit and let staff vote on the best ones. different strokes for different folks and all not everyone has the same taste. wouldnt you hate to win a masters then get a vanity you dislike? and the ones that arent used for this can be limited edition vanitys down the road or next season.

Perhaps the qualifiers could have crown rewards too, but much more dull ones, then the winner's crown could be much more colourful and have more details.

There would be no theme to letting a winner choose from a giant pool of vanities. Summer series winner could pick a wizard robe or whatever and autumn winner a kecleon hat...

A themed crown would be a status symbol, everyone would recognize it, the wearer would have the largest e-peen of them all.

I agree that the winner should believe the vanity he will be rewarded is awesome, but by limiting it to crowns, I am sure that Darkshade could focus more on the quality of those, given the time he could spend on reaching the same quality of 30 random vanities.

IMO tournaments like this need to have an OP shiny prize, otherwise we would never see them. Disappointed the community is settling for vanity items. 

We could have seasonals with OP prizes along with this. This wouldn't soak up a spot for one of our usual seasonals.

 

As far as I'm aware, the only reason seasonals are not so common is because we need cooldowns on the OP prizes, but since this is mainly cash prize which is funded from the contestants, I see no problem with it.

To answer the question about a unique vanity item of some sort be created and then provided as a prize for this type of event I would only allow it if it were untradable. The prize pool would be more than enough monetary incentive to participate.

@Tyrone, your suggestion is a great way to make people in competitive circles motivated. They want to get the crown, but only one person can have it. Its also an excellent money sink, people throwing money at their dreams. They want the crown, then they will need the money and the determination to get there. Tyrone, why not be a TV executive? This concept reminds me of contest shows where you have to pay the producers in order to get in and then you have to do the work to get to the top.
