Yeah, it does sound like a good idea, Aura! :D

So are you thinking of raw data or a little more. For example:

Alakazam17: 4 points

With the "little more" explaining this, in perhaps a little better detail:

I battled in three tournies, of which I lost in Round One twice(1 point each) and got to Round Two in the third(2 points). XD

    Lol, well I already ran the idea by multiple staff members without a response. I'd hate to be annoying. Although I can't imagine a simple yes/no would be too hard to muster. XD

    Well a point system would work fine I think...Like a point for actually entering in a tourney, 2 for getting past round one, 4 for getting past round two, ect.

      Oh, that idea wasn't for the wifi tournament. The thing I PMd to staff was the PC Wifi ladder idea. For that, I was just going to suggest that there could be an official thread where people could report their scores. Matches in the quick battle thread or even tournament matches could still go towards the official ladder standings as long as both battlers confirmed the score. Then the results would be added and, much like the ratings on Shoddy, there would be a leader board with the highest win percentages. I don't think it would be too hard to take care of...Just a lot of number crunching and stuff, but once again, I have plenty of time on my hands, so I wouldn't mind doing it at all. Like I said, I think it could be fun for everyone and a good incentive to have some battles and liven this place up a bit ;D

      As for the actual wifi tournament standings, I think a point system would work ok, kind of like what you were saying. Although it would have to be worked out a little more precisely to make sure it was fair. But it is your tournament, so I don't want to make any decisions for you. XD

      Ah, okay. It still sounds interesting. Well, I'm thinking the biggest tournaments here are this one, the Extreme Speed Open, and Ito_Igami's Extreme Gym(which is reopening upon Platinum's release, people ). Perhaps we could pool our results, in addition to having individual rankings based on each of our threads.

      So something like "Aurafire: X points here / Y points in total" with maybe a few lines about everyone with more than Z points to their name. How does that sound?

      It does sound like something fun to get set up. I could probably get to work on it sometime during the week('cuz midterms are now over, Yay!). It would be interesting to see who we get in the top 10, or who #1 will end up being. XD

      That sounds great! Ryan and I could scrounge up the ESO records in no time. This is kinda playing on the idea that we had for the Extreme Speed Champions Tour (which failed miserably XD). We made a leaderboard based on where people finished every tournament. Taking into account all the major tournaments/gyms and perhaps everyone's standard wifi records, we could make a really cool rankings list =D

        I'm just wondering how we'll combine records/tournaments/gyms into a simple enough point system. Anyone have any ideas? =O

        A simple win-loss percentage/ratio is best.

        this idea sounds a bit scary don';t you think because if you win and have low points won't you loose ?

            I remember I got to round 3 without having to battle anyone XD. THe first 2 people had to cancle on me, and then I had to forfiet DX. So the only tourny I was in, I didn't get to battle.

                Mm, the remaining matches still have until Saturday to finish. Hopefully we can either get them done or Zam can make an executive decision since..there's only 4 left. XD

                Umm, hmm. I'll try to give some thoughts on a ladder system. The PC Wifi Tournament is the biggest attraction to the Battle Stadium, so if there's a point-based system, this place should give the most for winning matches. Especially considering epic matches such as Ursaring vs. Ichida happen in round one. So maybe..

                1st Round-5 points
                2nd Round-25 points
                3rd Round-50 points
                4th Round-95 points
                5th Round (if there is one)-120 points
                Quarter-Finals-150 points
                Semi-Finals-300 points
                Finals-500 points
                Win-750 points

                In this tournament, we should have around 16-18 going into round two, with a few still getting byes. So we at least have rounds 1,2,3 before the Quarters. Or perhaps, you can just decide how many points each round is worth when the thing finishes, since it'll be different each PC tournament.

                Wait, but the PC wifi ladder and the tournament ladder can't go together. That would be much too complicated. We should make a separate leaderboard for each, unless that was already established. In that case, nvm. =P

                But I do like that point system for the tournaments. The Wifi tournament would obviously be worth the most, but we could do something similar for the ESO.

                  I don't know exactly how the PC Wifi Ladder should be set up, though. That seems like it'd be complicated, but yeah, they should be separate.

                    So you guys are voting on a final four huh?

                    Well, here goes nothing (And keep in mind, this is NOTHING personal. :/)

                    _Prince_, Ichida, aragornbird, and dewey/-Lugia- That's my opinion.

                      Well, it's a 4-0, him being the victor. I should have become a bit more educated in Ubers before trying that one. xD Hax did help the 4-0, but eh, I suppose parahax has to happen some time or another. xD

                      GG aragorn.
