    Default Gameroom Rock/Paper/Scissors Tournament IV

    First tournament
    Second tournament
    Third tournament

    Yeah, it's time for another. But this time, by popular demand, I'm adding a wrinkle.

    Rules:
    Pretty simple really. I create the one-on-one matchup, each participant sends me a PM saying which one they pick. Rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, paper beats rock. In the case of there being a tie, players will also send me a second choice in the PM. If there's still a tie, then the game ends in a draw.

    Tournament structure will be a single round robin which will determine seeding. The knockout round will be your standard seeded ladder structure, with the top four seeds earning first-round byes. In the round robin, players get 1 point for a win, 0 points for a loss, and 0.5 points for a tie. There are no draws in the knockout round, obviously.

    BETTING RULES ZOMG IT'S HAPPENING:
    If you don't want to test your skills at Rock/Paper/Scissors, or if you weren't able to sign up in time, or if you did sign up but want to take part anyway, I'm adding a betting feature for this game. Basically, anytime you want (even if the tournament has already started), just indicate your interest and I'll start you off with 100 gold (note: this sum is not transferable to future Pirate Ship Mafia games Barto). You can then wager on... whatever you want, so long as you have somebody to take your bet - I'm too lazy to be an actual bookie and establish odds, etc. At least not right away.

    Transactions can be confirmed publicly or privately, as long as both sides agree on the stakes.

    The person with the most gold at the end of the tournament is crowned, uh, Gameroom betting champion, I guess.

    Post here to indicate interest in the tournament, betting, or both. For the tournament, I can take any number of players so long as we get at least 8, though I'll probably cap it at 13. Best of luck to all, and happy WIFOMing!

    Signed up for the tournament:
    Zack
    El Barto
    BSmith
    Jolt
    Al Sipsclar
    atheotes
    edse
    Sigurd
    Csargo
    Myrddraal
    Visorslash
    Winston Hughes

    Count me in for both.

    I played the first (7 yrs ago) and the third one.
    Played the first tournament like the South African cricket team. Entering the last round of preliminaries at 1st position and then losing the next 2 games to exit the tournament when the pressure was on!
    Played poorly in the third tournament and again lost the first knock out match!
    I am looking to better my record and go all the way!

    Per tradition, I'm going to reserve one of the three remaining spots to defending champion @Visorslash, who I know is around considering he's thanked a couple of posts in this thread. However, if he declines to participate, or if he doesn't respond in the next 24 hours, then I'll open it back up to the general public.

    It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then, the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

    You're the last one in for the tournament.

    For betting, you can join in at any time, so if you're reading this just post to indicate interest.

    Give me an hour or four to determine the matchups, etc, and we'll start!

    edse vs. Myrddraal
    Sigurd vs. Csargo

    Day 12:
    Zack vs. Myrddraal
    Visorslash vs. Csargo
    Winston Hughes vs. Sigurd
    seireikhaan vs. edse
    El Barto vs. Al Sipsclar

    Day 13:
    Zack vs. Jolt
    Al Sipsclar vs. BSmith
    atheotes vs. El Barto
    Sigurd vs. seireikhaan
    Csargo vs. Winston Hughes
    Myrddraal vs. Visorslash
    edse (bye)


    You will note that this tournament has 13 entrants instead of 12. The top four seeds will still receive first-round byes in the knockout round, but last place, the #13 seed, will miss out on the knockout round entirely. This is done to patch out an exploit that a certain person WHO WILL REMAIN NAMELESS used in order to go into the knockout round while purposely not scoring a single point in the round robin.

    It is now Day 1! Scheduled matchups for today:
    Zack vs. Csargo
    Myrddraal vs. Sigurd
    Visorslash vs. edse
    Winston Hughes vs. atheotes
    seireikhaan vs. Al Sipsclar
    El Barto vs. BSmith
    Jolt (bye)

    Please PM me with your choice for either Rock, Paper, or Scissors. In addition, please send me your backup choice in case the first throws end in a tie. Once I get all results, I will resolve them immediately. Good luck!

    Betting Start

    This is going to be a little ad-hoc, so bear with me. First of all, you can sign up to bet at any point during the tournament, even if you've missed out on signups/only discovered the thread halfway through.

    Everyone who signs up to bet starts with 100 gold - no rebuys allowed. Probably. You can wager on anything you want to, publicly or privately, but both/all sides must confirm to me - again, publicly or privately - in order for the bet to go through.

    Bets do not have to be even on both sides: i.e. you can set up a wager where you can put up 1 gold saying that an unlikely event will happen (exactly four draws in one round, let's say) and somebody can take that bet but put up 10 gold. This could work out either way: on one hand, it's a good way to pick up small amounts of money, but on the other hand it could be a way to take a big gamble and have it pay off.

    I will let you know when I receive all orders and begin my writeup. Bets made in the interim will be allowed, but there might not be enough time for all sides to agree unless you're online at the same time.

    Various tournament errata:
    - No #1 seed has ever won the tournament
    - Each tournament has been won by someone from a Commonwealth nation (twice Australia, once UK)
    - Sigurd has appeared in all four tournaments and made at least the semifinals each time, though he has never won
    - atheotes and seireikhaan have appeared in three tournaments, though neither has made a semifinal
    - This will be the second tournament for Csargo, BSmith, Zack, Visorslash, and edse. Visorslash is the defending champion.
    - Out of the 32 entrants in the previous three tournaments, one person has made it through the round robin stage without any defeats

    I can't think of any others at the moment but you should all get the idea of what you can bet on by now.

    Bettors:
    Zack - 100
    El Barto - 100
    BSmith - 100
    Al Sipsclar - 100
    atheotes - 100
    edse - 100
    Csargo - 100
    Myrddraal - 100
    Winston Hughes - 100
    seireikhaan - 100

    Jolt - 100 (unconfirmed)

    I want to bet 20 on 3 or more rocks thrown in the first round. Anyone take it?
