Well it never took off over on the AVL site, so Dawg Pound Investigations is proud to announce that we will be holding a tournament. lilangel and myself have been working the past few weeks to get enough teams interested and finally have them together. If all goes well, there will be more tournaments to follow which we will make open to all agencies. Our tournament will begin on Monday, April 14 and will be 4 or 5 rounds. details can be viewed here:

Thoughts for possible improvement:-

1. Tweak the scoring. At the moment the scoring is biased towards getting a complete team home on day 4. There is little incentive to finish on Day three unless the entire team can finish on day three. I'd like to see a team with 2 finishes on Day three and one on Day 4 beat a team with three finishes on Day 4.

2. Improve the tiebreaker rules. One possibility is to have the first tiebreaker to be which captain finished earliest in terms of days. At the moment a captain who finishes as the second agent on day 4 will beat a captain who finished on day three in the tiebreaker. We also need a third tiebreaker, as the current rule (and my proposed one) wont help if as looks likely DPI and Sirens tie in the current match.

Extra thought on the tiebreaker:- Maybe nominate a vice captain. If the captains can't be separated then go the vice captains.

If they are tied as well then maybe we go to a replay or something. Any other ideas on tiebreakers?

And as forecast DPI and Sirens execute a perfect tie!

What now lilangel and ctown?

I was afraid something like this might happen, lilangel and me are currently discussing our options, stayed tuned to this thread as we will have a decision sometime today.

Vbuster, thank you for all the great suggestions, this being our first shot at this, there are some things that need to be tweaked and I welcome any ideas people may have. Also let us know your thoughts on Vbusters suggestions, everything is open for suggestion here. Post here or PM lilangel or myself.

We still have some people out there, but Round 4 will commence as planned on Monday, The winner of TIA/Shaded LEgends will have 2 rounds off and the loser of that match will have one round off.

Regarding the tie breaker, there could be just one - which captain finished earlier in absolute terms. That should be easy to tell from City News right?

In terms of the points scoring, how about the score for each day stays the same, so the first finish gets points for that day, the second finish gets points for that day + the next, and the third finish gets points for that day and the day after next.

For example:
Finishes Old scoring New scoring
3,3,4 14, 14+12, 12 = 52 same = 52
4,4,4 12, 12+9, 12+9+5 = 59 12, 12+9, 12+5 = 50
3,4,4 14, 12, 12+9 = 47 same = 47

I agree with a tie breaker where the captain who finishes first wins, but I don't agree with it being the captain that finishes earlier in absolute terms. I think it wouldn't be fair because of the time zones. We cannot expect anybody to get up at 4 am or stay awake until 1 am for example.

So the captain with the most cases left on that pariticular day? That could work, but it would require one of two things, the captain would either have to provide a password to it can be validated, (Which I'm not so sure I like) or provide ascreen shot so it can be validated. Just some small kinks to work out, we'll come up with something.

ok, lil and me talked it over and this is what we are going to do:

Fortunately, the first tie came in the losers bracket so this is what we are going to do. Both teams advance to the next round and there will be a triple threat match in the losers bracket. This means it will be:

Dawg Pound
vs
Sirens
vs
Untouchables


Same rules apply, we are not about to make the changes in the middle of a tourney, but can tweak them after this tourney is over for when we decide on the next one.

But keep any ideas for other tiebreakers coming, I'd love to hear them. What about, most xp points gained by the team captain, I would have to track that of course, and would have no problem seeing how many someone starts with, but would need to rely on the honor system for how many are ended up with at the point of capture, no more cases to be played after capture. What does everyone think?
