Post Date: 01/31/08 @ 3:05PM Topic: Re: Gears of War

This is probably going to be my last post on Gears. Here are my thoughts on how the tournament needs to be improved. This year is was a disorganized mess that lasted way too long but the rules, and general tournament set up (double elimination) were great ideas. Last year the tournament was very unforgiving (one map first to five single elimination), and had one really poor map selection (rooftops). However the tournament didn't take up the whole event so I got to walk about and enjoy some free play and other stuff, and all in all really really enjoyed myself even though our little make shift team (a bunch of guys that had never played together and one guy that didn't own a 360 and had only played the game on one occasion) only got to the semi-finals.

So this is the best fix I can possibly think of for Gears. Have two stations so you can run two matches at once. I know this requires twice the number of well everything but if it can be provided then Gears could be run in a much shorter amount of time and still have double elimination. With two stations there would be less rush to get matches done so match times could be at set times. This would allow players in the tournament to wonder around and check out some of the cool stuff down stairs or pop in on other tournaments without the fear of missing a match because they can just shoot back up at their scheduled time to play.

If you guys need help getting the equipment for the extra station I don't think it would be too hard for me to get it all for you except maybe tvs of the same general kind. I can easily get the 360s, controls, and a switch/router no problem. I love Gears and love this event. If you think this might leave you short handed on staff to ref let me know, if I have to take a seat from the competition to make sure other people have fun I am more than willing.

So there you have it. If anyone wants they can get in touch with me to tell me what you think

I would not mind bringing in equipment for gears because that is the major reason why I went to the tourny, so if you need any help with equipment or just loading (strong arm lol) stuff or whatever let me know because I want the gears expierence to be twice as good as it was this year.

I am also from Team Tron, with Twitchbel, Gears suprised me alot. I had played off and on maybe 3 games in 2007, and We ended up doing alot better.

The women lied big time, she changed rules in every game. In NO MLG format game is team killing ever on. She said in quote "I never said that! It's on the site, team killing is on." Hmm.... don't see it anywhere..... So umm BULL!

Also on team VVV, they had that girl Kelly constantly pointing the opposing team out, which is ILLEGAL as hell. She also tried her best to insult the other team, and throw their game off. I think the members of VVV are talented don't ge me wrong, but they are the most crap talking, and insulting team I have ever come acroos.

I would like to play them in the future, but I don't care to hear them speak.

I am proud the the team that beat Tron in Gears, "Icky" did so well against VVV.

Also the coaches pretty much screaming for everyone to move out the way, made the environment somewhat crappy. VVV was very unsporting, and I still don't aprove of that girl Kelly calling out positions of oppoents, and insulting them, to sway things in her teams favor.

So next time, all viewers, have to sit away from the players, and under NO circumstances should they be aloud to help their FAVORITE team in anyway. You can cheer though.

Anyway even though the Tourney had its obvious problems I got to say, it had to be one of the funniest expierances of my life. Besides VVV, every other team I came across was respectful, and just great to be around.

I hope to play with some of y'all again in the future

Thanks for your feedback. I was a member of team Icky People and will be director for Gears 09 so hopefully I will be able to put on a better tournament than that UGS lady did this year

Link - I am sorry you feel the way you do. I attempted to address your issues before you left but if you were still unhappy, you could have talked with me as the others did and you would have found out more about our plans to make up for CGS not providing more than plaques to our winners.

Correction --> We were NOT paid to produce this tournament or any others. We were asked to pay to be there.

Correction --> It was our understanding that it was the responsibility of CGS to provide the prizes and we addressed the issue with the other team after we found out the results of the award ceremony.

As for the time constraints, we did not want to resort to single elim but sadly we ran out of time. While some didn't like the UGS rules, they are the rules used in our circuit.

I do not want to get into a back and forth argument but I will say, I made it clear that anyone and everyone was encouraged to talk with me if there were any concerns and the only ones complaining on the forums are the ones that did not talk with me.

Good luck to everyone in the coming tournaments.

"our plans to make up for CGS not providing more than plaques to our winners."

other than free admission into another one of your tournaments what else do you have planned? I am not trying to argue but if you guys had something other than the free admission planned shouldn't you have said something at the awards ceremony?

Well my fault on the assumptions of being paid and about the prizes but you never encouraged our team for concerns and when the tournament was over you said that we needed to head to the award ceremony right away and tell the people at the ceremony that we finished 2nd so they could point us in the direction of our assigned seats. Oh and by the way I love this comment you said

"Correction --> It was our understanding that it was the responsibility of CGS to provide the prizes and we addressed the issue with the other team after we found out the results of the award ceremony."

Notice how you said "issue with the other TEAM" and not "TEAMS" so that would indicate you only planned on giving prizes to the 1st and 2nd place teams which is kinda wierd to leave out Team Gun for finishing 3rd. It sounds like to me you are making this up on the fly but I'm not for sure exactly.

And another note, Icky People stayed about 30 minutes after the award ceremony so if you were "concerned" with the outcome of the award ceremony (and that would assume you stayed there throughout the whole ceremony because Gears was almost last at the ceremony) I would think some sort of effort could of been put on your behalf to find the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams. We were right outside the auditorium so it was kinda hard to miss us.

I was never told by anyone is we had a problem we could discuss it. I was told I would be DQed when I asked if I could use the restroom real quick before we played though.

So guy's any idea when the next tourney is? Maybe just a rough estimate? I'm eager to play some GEARS again, I've beaten myself back into shape!!

Who knows maybe me and the other members of Tron will beat y'all Icky people next time? Watcha think?

Either way, if y'all are overseeing everything it's bound to be GREAT!
