2011 Year End Tournament

So 2011 is coming to an end and it’s time for year end tournament. To make it special and more exciting, prizes will be offered in this tournament. Contestants placed in the first 4 rankings will be rewarded 1st, 2nd, 3rd and consolation prize respectively as rewarded in Rizon lottery (i.e. 120 days, 60 days, 30 days and 10 days of colored vhost). And to make it even more exciting, I’m thinking of possibly throwing in physical prizes if there are enough contestants joining the tournament. One of the plans is rewarding the prize to the first place winner and the most favorite play (based on voting plus my personal picking), or just the favorite play with a higher-valued prize.

With that said, I need your inputs and ideas on the tournament. First, please pick your preferred date of the tournament by voting in the poll below:

Second, please let me know by commenting to this post what kinds of physical prize you would like to see and how they should be rewarded. Of course, the cost would have to be reasonable – don’t expect some grand, expensive prizes as I’m just throwing them in to make things more fun. I don’t mind sponsorships though so that we can offer better prizes. 😛 Anyway, someone suggested a J-List gift certificate which sounds like a pretty good idea to me, the prize winner would have the flexibility to choose what (s)he likes there. Any more ideas?

Edit 1: if you have no idea what vhost is, type “/msg hostserv help” on IRC. Normally vhost cannot be colored, nor can it be a single word (i.e. at least have to have one dot). The prizes will exempt those conditions.

Edit 2: yes, there will be a NA and a EU tournament, separated. They will be held on the same day though unless there’s reason for otherwise.

Edit 3: this is guu by the way, in case you can’t tell.

Update: looks like December 23rd is the most preferred date so the tournament will take place on that date. Deep has provided sponsorship for NA tournament and he would like $30 contributed to 1st prize and $10 contributed to 2nd prize. I will personally throw in another $20 for the most favorite play based on voting plus my personal pick (i.e. I will pick one from the 3 replays that get the top votes). So, the prizes for NA tournament will be:

1st place: $30 J-List gift certificate + 120-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
2nd place: $10 J-List gift certificate + 60-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
3rd place: 30-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
4th place: 10-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
Most favorite play: $20 J-List gift certificate (NB: 1st place winner will be excluded from entitlement of this prize)

Many thanks to Deep for the NA sponsorship. Prizes for EU will be announced later (*coughaswearewaitingforsponsorshipcough*).

Aristocrat will post the details of the tournament later so stay tuned.

Update 2: here are the prizes of EU tournament. Unfortunately there is no sponsor for EU tournament so the prizes cannot be as nice as NA’s.

When there are 12 participants or more:
1st place: $20 J-List gift certificate + 120-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
2nd place: $10 J-List gift certificate + 60-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
3rd place: 30-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
4th place: 10-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
Most favorite play: $10 J-List gift certificate (NB: 1st place winner will be excluded from entitlement of this prize)

When there are less than 12 but more than 7 participants (i.e. 8 to 11):
1st place: $20 J-List gift certificate + 120-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
2nd place: 60-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
3rd place: 30-day colored and/or one-worded vhost
