My idea is Melee Map Tournament for our members
1v1 games

We need atleast 8 or 16 players for this (16/8/4/2/1)

3 The best players could get some kind of prize (colored nick, or just award icon)
What do you think about this guys?

I actually really like this idea, perhaps we could use this as a piggyback for our commentators!

We could even livestream the matches on ustream. We just need a spectator that does that :D Would be a cool addition.

That's rly good idea CW
Imo Tournament for 8 players would be the best idea.
Something like this:

I would like to have a loosers bracket.
Basically the player that makes his wall through the entire loosers bracket earns the 2nd place, and the one that loose in the looser bracket finals earns the 3rd place.
Here is an image of it. It looks more complicated than it is.

There is probably even better rules out there..
I just made this up within a few minutes. This system basically makes it so that if you were unlocky enough to loose against the tournaments winner in your first match, you can still make your way through the loosers bracket and get 2nd place. Less luck based.

Wow that's a good idea :D
Shouldn't we start it?
I think that it will not take much time to gather 8 players :D

I have only played 5 1v1 matches since the release of starcraft II. I know a shitload of stuff as I watch GSL and TSL but making use of this knownledge in real time is something entierly different xD
And I would suggest having the contest during the weekend or on friday.

ooooor we could just play some melee games during the gathering? It does not feel like it would be a good idea to start having tournaments at this moment.

Just go for the Tasteless-build, it has a 100% win guarantee. :P

Using your own builds usually do not work out to well in diamond :(
Well, it would obviously work out good if your own build happens to be one of the popular builds.

I am diamond in 2v2. I were diamond in 1v1 during second beta phase and platinum in 1v1 during phase 1.
I pretty much quit ladder entierly after the release though. But I plan to start playing again when season 2 starts though. Hopefully I will reach diamond in 1v1 again :)
