Cool World Cup ideas

Post by allstarz97 »

There should be a World Cup, USA, Canada, and Europe. Top 3 players from each country play each other or something.

I have heard this idea come up a few times before, and I think its awesome every time I hear it, although adding Canada is a new twist.

I think Worlds is the only time that these players would be in the same room.

The question is how to determine the teams. there are probably 4-6 guys to be considered for 3 spots

I'd like to see an exhibition tournament with all four 2x World Champions. Shannon, Chu, Desai, and Wallen, double round robin (6 rounds, everybody plays everybody else with both sides of the force). The PC donates like $1000 to the winner's charity of choice, or something like that.

Sick idea.

And all games recorded (so 2x camera setup is needed, not just one).

I was thinking something like how American Ninja Warrior does US vs The World.

Have a 4 man team from US/Canada and a 4 man team from Europe.
Stage 1 - 2 games
random pairings, one player from US team is paired against one player from the Euro team
Total wins (or diff if tied) among all team players determines winning team
Winning team gets 2 points

Stage 2 - 2 games
Bith Shuffle style
random pairings, one US player paired against one Euro player
Each player is given a deck at random from a player on the other team - decks will be the same as used in Stage 1
Total wins (or diff if tied) among all team players determines winning team
Winning team gets 2 points

Stage 3 - 4 games
Team tournament
2 US teams, 2 Euro teams
(players can use different decks than previous Stages for this tournament)
Standard team event format (one LS player, one DS player). After two games, each player switches from LS to DS (or vice versa).
Team with most wins (or highest total diff in case of a tie) wins
Winner gets 2 points

Stage 4 - 2 games
Head to Head - tag team
Each team picks one player, they can use any one of the decks used by anyone on their team in previous stages (teammates not playing can also help active player)
Team with least points picks their player first, if tied, team with lowest total diff between stage 1 and stage 2 combined picks first
Current player can choose to tag in teammate to take over (must be declared as a top level action). Each team is allowed 3 tags.
Standard match play. Highest diff between two games wins match.
Winner gets 6 points

Ok this Got me hyped. The idea of making a clash of the titans thing happen with all the two times World champs had me at Hello. Plz Make it happen. Maybe the pc could pay for emils ticket and the thing could be held in the States no problem. It would be so cool.
Results:
European Championships 2014 - 3rd place
European Championships 2013 - 8th place
Toola Regionals 2013 - runner up
European Championships 2011 - 5th place

It would probably have to be during Worlds weekend, when Emil is in the states (assuming Worlds are in the states). Desai has said publicly that he's unlikely to travel to a SWCCG event except an east coast Worlds. *shrug*

Something to keep in mind for the future I guess.
