ZH Amateur Tournament

Post by JMoney » Thu Apr 21, 2016 10:50 pm

I'm looking to set up a tournament that focuses on the players that don't necessarily get the spotlight of ZHL and I'm trying to gauge interest.

Amount of interest and the number of teams that sign up would dictate the tournament format. The two options I am looking at are group stages followed by a bracket, or pre-seeded teams playing in a double elimination bracket.

Lots of interest could make this into an off-season event. Minimal interest could have the tournament done in a weekend.

Casting would be optional/negotiable. Having a broadcaster for every game severely slows the process down. I would be willing to have games casted on independent channels simultaneously to keep things flowing smoothly.

I would like to create an environment where a ZHL player can offer guidance on what his team can do to succeed. I would consider any player that has started >50% of games for a team in any of the past 3 seasons as a ZHL player, however some things will be taken on a case by case basis.

Players that have not signed up for a previous ZHL/ZHPL season will be ineligible to play. I don't want to background check every player to prevent smurfing, so I will be relying on the skills of past ZHL administrations.

1 sub per team would be allowed.

All games would be played on central.

I would like at least 8 teams before this becomes more than just an idea.

themusic has agreed to provide a cosmetic prize of his choosing to the winning team.


PS: Not trying to steal Death's thunder from the other thread & I would be willing to work with him to flesh this out

EDIT: I have also decided that it's in the spirit of the tournament not to allow any game-breaking ZHL players (rounds 1,2 + some exceptions in later rounds) to play their main role. However ZHL players can apply to play their off-role, or be a non-playing captain for a team.

I hope you don't let eu all-stars play, because even with delay that kinda defeats the purpose of this tourney.
