Fortress-For-All

What the FFA is

The Fortress-for-All tournament is a Fortress competition inspired by the Fortress Brawl, Ladle, Spoon, and "pickup" games. The idea is to get players who don't always have the opportunity or the will to play in the Ladle to experience the intensity and excitement that comes along with it. Frequently, in the Ladle, a team will sign up with well over 6 players (the minimum required to have a team) and only 6-7 of those players actually get to play. The others are forced to spectate with stars in their eyes wondering when they'll be able to play on the big stage. Well, that's what the point of this tournament is. Anyone, whether you have a clan/Ladle team or not, is encouraged to participate in this tournament. There are *NO* previous requirements to sign up.

How it works - Signups

Anyone who wants to play is more than welcome to sign up. There are going to be 72 initial spots to sign up. This will equate to 12 teams of 6 players each. Once the allotted 72 spots are filled up, there are to be a remaining 12 spots to sign up listed under "Substitutes". If for any reason a player chooses to withdraw themselves from the tournament, the first signed up substitute will be bumped up into the Players list. This will allow a new substitute to sign up at the bottom of the list. In addition to signing up as a Player, 12 people need to sign up as a Captain. Anyone who wishes to be a captain may nominate themselves, but please - be very knowledgeable about fort and willing to put in the effort of organizing your team to it's highest capabilities. *Note that you must be one of the first 72 people to sign up as a Captain.

How it works - Teams

Teams for this tournament are going to be decided by a draft amongst the Captains. On Saturday, the day before the tournament, Captains (and only Captains) will meet at a predetermined time to "draft" their teams. To draft teams, the Captains will all join the IRC room #armagetron.tourneys via an IRC client or the web IRC client. After all Captains are present in the IRC chat room, they will be presented with a Google Docs Spreadsheet. This spreadsheet will have a full list of players and substitutes, and each Captain will be asked to drag & drop the player of their choice to their team when it is their turn. Prior to the draft, each Captain will be assigned a draft number which determines the choosing order (More information can be found on the FAQ page). After each player has been chosen, Captains will be asked to choose a substitute. After all players and substitutes have been picked to a team, the teams will be posted to the wiki and brackets will be made. After the brackets are made, any requests to change team names will be accepted (the default team names will be named by a system to avoid confusion). The teams will then be posted on the wiki page and practice/preparation amongst teams may begin.
