    Default The Next Tournament(s)

    Post ideas for what you think the next battling tournament should be. Like the posts that include the ideas you would like to see. A poll will come soon.

    Also, about the Gym Leader Conference, it should probably occur, but there's some debate over how it should be handled. Should the Orange Islands be allowed in it? What about people that aren't gym leaders; why should they be discriminated against?

    imo, the OI pool of 6 or 8 Pokemon will have a significant advantage over gyms that must stick to a smaller array of Pokemon. There are plenty of options, but which one do all you prefer?

    Option 0: Don't run it. HNNNNNNNNNG
    Option 1: STFU Pidge just run it like it used to. I hate you; you try to change everything. RAGE
    Option 2: Run it like last year, but ban all gyms that are not based on a single type.
    Option 3: Run it like last year, but balance Orange Islands even more (smaller pool? their opponent can set rules? other ideas?).
    Option 4: Run it as a monotype tournament open to all players in which gym leaders who stick with their own type throughout the whole tournament and get far are awarded twice (or a little less) more.
    Option 5: Run it with two brackets, one for gym leaders and one for non gym leaders. Gym leaders based on one single type can enter both brackets. Everyone else can enter just enter the non gym leaders bracket. The gym leader bracket will have battles in which the gym leaders can only use Pokemon in their lineup. The non gym leader bracket will have battles in which a player can only use one type per battle (monotype battle). The winners of each bracket face each other in a final. If the winners of both brackets are the same person, the world implodes.
    Option 6: Run it with two brackets, one for gym leaders and one for non gym leaders. Any gym leader can enter both brackets. Everyone else can just enter the non gym leaders bracket. The gym leader bracket will have battles in which the gym leaders can only use Pokemon in their lineup. The non gym leader bracket will have battles in which a player can only use one type per battle (monotype battle). The winners of each bracket face each other in a final. If the winners of both brackets are the same person, the world implodes.
    Option 7: Other (post your idea ^^)

    So post what kind of 'Gym' Tourney you would think is best and other future tournament ideas.

    Sounds good, I'm in. I vote 5

    [20:38] mewalcadiesmew: Though maybe in final battle Gym leader picks rules or something

    Because they're stuck using the same type throughout while everyone else can change types as they go.

    Also, I agree a risk tournament would be fun. And a lot of other tournaments would too.

    On a slightly unrelated note, I think URPG should open a Battle Frontier (I know we did Factory tournament, but it would be AWESOME if it was run like another set of gyms with special rules, like the Orange Islands)

    Battle Frontier was denied MANY times. I know. I tried. Meh Option 7 seems alright.

    tl;dr so Option 7 (I will still try to help with my opinion though!)

    Option 7: OI Gyms shouldn't be allowed. It is true they are Gym Leaders, but the OI gym systems are too different (i.e. they have their own champion and unique rules), and in many cases may have a superior advantage over 'generic' Gym Leaders based on rosters alone. I guess it isn't fair to kick out OI Leaders completely though, and maybe just let them join with monotype rosters.

    Non-Gym Leaders should be excluded. It could be called discrimination, but it's been the way it's been done forever. It is a Gym Leader Tournament, after all. It was designed to provide elite-level competition between some of the best in URPG, and while there are very good battlers that wouldn't be eligible, I consider it to be one of the perks of being a Gym Leader - being allowed to participate in this exclusive tournament. Besides, pretty much every other tournament is open for everyone anyways. One exclusive-to-these-people tournament won't cause a riot.

    Just leaving it the way it has been is cool too but I've never participated in one of these so I may not be the best person to say that.

    This. This tournament is for Gym Leaders and it always has been. I think you'll find that about 75% of the active URPG community is a Leader anyway. I like the ideas involving dual pools, but I think it could get too complicated too fast. I LOVE the idea of allowing OI Gyms in but forcing them to run monotype - there's very little wrong with that.

    tl;dr: Option 7. Run the Tourney exactly the same way as last time except force the OI Leaders to pick a type and stick to it.

    EDIT: I think that's actually Option 3. Whatever.

    How about you open the Gym Leader tournament for everyone. Everyone chooses a gym they'd like to represent (even if it has already been chosen by someone else) and they battle using the Pokemon they would use if they really were that gym's leader. Heh, for the fun of it, even allow actual Gym Leaders to choose a different gym to represent if they want to.

    The prizes could still be the same as last year.


    Hey! Maybe even make it a team tournament with a limited number of people per gym.


    Just tossing in ideas.

    It's a gym leader tournament. It should be only gym leaders. I totally don't mind being left out of a tournament if I don't meet what should be considered the minimum requirements to enter, which in this case is being a gym leader. So option 3 I guess? Whatever Chainy says, I'll blindly follow his answers for this tourney.

    Option 1.

    It's been good and fun before. No need to change anything.

    Also, I know this tourney was one of the factors that made me strive to get a gym of a type I could battle with.

    I guess I'll say 3. Granted Orange Islands have their own rules, but it's not like those rules need to be included in the tournament. One of the gyms is just specifically Water type mons only so to allow it to join, and exclude the other ones, or vice versa when you don't allow all to join wouldn't be right. So just balance them somehow.

    I don't agree with OI being excluded. They're somewhat different, but not enough that it tips the scale in a battle versus a normal gym. To be honest, it would be harder to me using my lineup to take down, for example, a flying type gym. I'd have to pick from my lineup 4-6 mons that are good against flying, which quite frankly I don't have. tl;dr OI should be included, they don't have an advantage.

    Also, if it's a gym tourney, non-gym leaders shouldn't be allowed. Anyone can apply for a gym, and if they want the perks that come along with it then they can apply. It's just another URPG profession, and this is one way that leaders get payed for their hard work.

    Just my opinions, I'd write more but I have class @_@

    I think Option 3.

    And I agree, this is a Gym Leader Tournament, so it makes sense that being a leader is the minimum requirement. I also agree with Neon that part of the reason I wanted a gym was to participate in this tournament, even if I did horribly. It's tradition, and while not all traditions are good, I think this one is a good one to keep.

    As for limiting the Orange Islands, they could maybe have to pick a roster of 6/8. If you wanted to go the other way, tell gym leaders they can use any mon of their type, or perhaps any allowed wildcards (as in multiple, not just one), instead of just what their lineup is. That might even it out a bit, since an opponent could be taken by surprise with something not on the regular list.

    I also like the idea of a monotype tournament in general, since that could be a lot of fun. I'd definitely sign up if we did another GameBoy Clause Tournament as well.

    Pidge, talk to me about this if you're seriously considering it. It'll save you work.

    I'm going with Option 1. I managed to get to the semi-finals as a freakin dojo leader last time, using Fire types with their bajillion weaknesses. Yeah, Orange Islands have a bit of an advantage. They also more than likely only have one or two Pokemon that can deal with a monotype team, as opposed to the chance of coming up against 6 you cant fight in the slightest. Harden up gym leaders and have a damn tournament.

    Yes, I will appeal to tradition. It's a good tradition.
