Each frag it seems the tourneys are starting late and we are up until the early ours of the morning playing competition games, now im not complaining rather just trying to improve things

I remember at vendetta they posted a schedule with times for each round of tournaments
If a team was not there within 10 minutes they were automatically disqaulified.

So i propose Frag does something similar to make sure tournaments move at a good pace.
People will also know when semi-final and finals are so they can watch.
Anyone can play in both CoD4 and Dota Tournaments without matches clashing.

For example:

Friday:

21:00 - Dota Round 1
22:00 - CoD4 Round 1

Saturday:

8:00 - Food time

9:00 - Dota Round 2
10:00 - CoD4 Round 2
11:00 - Dota Round 3
12:00 - CoD4 Round 3

13:00 - Food time

14:00 Dota Round 4
15:00 CoD4 Round 4
16:00 - Dota Round 5
17:00 - CoD4 Round 5

18:00 Food time

19:00 - Dota Semi-Finals
20:00 CoD4 Semi-Finals
21:00 - Dota Finals
22:00 - CoD4 Finals

The X-box comps should be able to fit inbetween times since they are not very long
Obviously the times will need to be finalized by the frag admin team
Also the number of rounds depending on the ammount of teams in each tournament
Games that take longer than the hour slot can continue and times can be re-ajusted

plz post your feedback on the idea

Something else to consider is the length of an average round of a specific game. You've allocated COD4 and DotA rounds the same amount of time; I'm pretty sure that DotA rounds take longer to complete than COD4. ;)

CSS has been made round robin so it can be played between the cod and dota. when 2 teams are free then they can play each other but there should be an hour or 2 allocated to CSS coz some teams may just be unlucky and not able to play eachother coz they in both cod and dota.

what i've decided to do for css:

the format will remain round robin but due to the length of the games and limited time available, if more than 8 teams enter i'll be splitting the teams into two pools which will also be round robin.

eg: 12 teams enter, this means each team will have to play 11 games, on average 40 mins a game = EACH team will spend 7.3 hours playing (TOO LONG)

so instead they would be divided into two groups of 6 who play each other so each team would spend about 3.3 hours playing in the comp, then the top2 teams from each pool would go thru to the whole semi final - final format.

i think one pool is doable as long as there arnt more that 8 teams (4.6 hours playing css per team or 7 games)
