I'll give this a go.

One piece of feedback: theta passage 5 might not really go over 125 units. I have seen plenty of games end early, so maybe remove that.

Four leaf clover, maybe, because of the deaths in middle...

I OBJECT! I just had a practice game on open palms. I have no idea what I'm doing, m'lud! :oops:

ETA so now two games, the first against Medicraze @ ~1.5K, the second against Iznogoud, who's a 1600. There is no way anybody at around 1K can compete.

This is by way of saying that the tourney rating brackets, while not elitist per se, are not open to Joe average in any realistic sense. :cry:

I made my initial bracket gauged on past experience with the people that sign up for tournaments. If I get, for example, 5-6 dudes at 1000 rating or below, I would definitely make a bracket for them to play in. The people that typically enter tournaments hover in the upper quartile of FAF ratings, though.

Regardless of map size, you typically hit 250 units on the map by minute 7 or 8. I am sure some games might not be influenced by the unit cap, but it will definitely be a consideration in some fashion for a solid proportion imo.

Possibly because, traditionally, Joes don't really stand a chance of winning anything and so don't bother?

ETA. And no, not everyone can or should be a winner. Do what you think is best and what doesn't turn into a logistics nightmare.

Chicken or the egg. Not about making everyone a winner, it’s about reducing time waste for the players that stand no chance as well as the top players that need to waste 3 hours of the weekend crushing people they have a 99.6% chance of beating according to trueskill before getting to competitive players. It objectively is beneficial for everyone.
