Re: Tournament v2.0?
More basical info I Wiggled out of my brainial:
The initial thread will be nominations of names. I think 64 is out of reach, 48 may be doable and fun (depending on how long we want it to last), and 32 is the most efficient and tenable structure.
I would head the tournament, meaning I would hear the names and decide on the final contestants, whatever the number might be. Which may sound a joy, but I'd also put the time in to post the polls, advance the tournament, and keep track of Ygritte being killed in the first round.
Within that thread we will also determine the status of characters. Does Jaime have both hands (prolly)? Can a Stark fight with their wolf (prolly not).
Can Areo bull rush The Hound (who knows)?
Once the names are set, I'll randomly generate brackets. Within each bracket I'll randomly generate match-ups. Which, on occasion, like any sport playoff can result in crap.
You're simply going to have Jaime v Thoros a couple times.
But, you're also going to have Bronn v Sandor a couple times.
