2 on 2 in groups of 3. 5 rounds depending on members. I hope for more soon. If I don't get at least 30 members I'll forget about this group and cancel.

...Kinda?
You didn't really plan this out, did you? Well, for starters, you need to do the division. Players/2, /2, /2, /2, ect.
If you end up with 0, you're good. Catagory workings are a must. People don't wanna be building microscale the whole time.


It's going to take some preperation if ya wanna try and tackle this on your own, buddy.

So, if we are doing it with pairs, can we use a creation we already have and say it is also for this, or do we have to make a new one?

I'm fairly new to MOCpages, so I'm more active than I probably will be in the future, trying to get all my creations and stuff uploaded.

Well could you build something different because:
1: I hasn't started.

2: And I don't know what you are building yet.

How are we going to run down the brackets? Remember, the starting amount of players needs to continually divide by two until we have one left.


so in essence, however many builders we start with has to work its way to one of these numbers. then flow down in this order, only backwards.

1-2-4-8-16-32-64-128

right now, we have between 64 and 128 players, the first go-arounds will have to be elimination rounds. Those elimination rounds will work the total players down to 64. once we have 64 (or 32, depending on how many applicants actually participate) we would be able to commence with bracketed rounds.

I say if we want to get to 128 by December 1st, we'd better have more people join. We no longer have very long to prepare.

Okay. We are going to need to count everyone who signed up.

If we only have a week for entries, than I may miss the first round altogether because starting tomorrow (20th) I will be on vacation until at least the 30th. So do I get extra time, or will I just pretty much be doomed?
