Tournaments are a thing!
BotB Academy Bulletins
I just wanted to give a heads up!

read here
Right now I'm working on a tourney simulator. I have the swiss robin round figured out, but I need to refactor what I have into a class (or classes) before moving forward. And, of course, I need to create Pit Fight functionality too.

I should have the Sign Up sheet up in the next few days. It will be open about two weeks or until my code is ready to handle this crazy mess.

(runs off to friend's place to watch GoT)

Love the idea! This is legitimately the coolest thing.

I'm curious why the seeding is ranked first by wins over ranked first by sum of scores? e.g. What if you were put up against 4 really strong composers, and lost 4 times but with very strong songs - is that fair compared to someone who was put up against 4 noobs and won easily with average songs? I get that score averages might be tilted slightly by how good/bad your opponent is, but I don't think the difference would be *that* much... (or would it?)

It feels to me that sorting by sum of scores would be the fairest way, plus maybe some sort of bonus for every win. But I have no doubt that you have probably considered this and have good rationale, so I'm interested to hear it =)

(Also, isn't 4 songs a lot just to get seeded? I mean in sexmodit mania, you only write 5 total songs, and isn't everyone exhausted by the end? =P)

It's a tournament, win/loss is nearly always the primary judgement factor for rank

Otherwise, with sum of scores, you're not competing against your opponent, rather the whole of all players (which makes the tournament format like any other major)

Savestate, I was talking about the first 4 compos which just get you a seed, not the whole torunament. For those compos it seems to me that you should indeed be competing against all players, since all players get a seed and seeds are essentially a ranking of all players, no?

will we have default sample pax for the various module size formats? it sounds like a pain to do, but if one combatant had a sample pack handy while another didn't, they would have a huge advantage.

Errr, if you consider Summer Chip VII a 166 person pit fight, than sure! =P

Also savestate if you plan on literally murdering your 4 opponents than that seems like an acceptable compromise

**ANYWAY**, all I'm suggesting is ranking by something like sum of averages + 5 * wins to calculate your seed only, which would seem to balance out the whole "i got matched against the 4 best musicians" vs "i got matched against the 4 worst musicians" thing. It's just a thought I had.

"If there is no common Format between BotBrs for a Pit Fight then the Format defaults to `allgear`. "

It seems you misspelled "channelf" there.

i'm assuming losers from the sky bracket go to hades? because it doesn't really make sense to have 2 brackets if it's single elimination

Losers from the first swiss robin round go to the hades pool and face another swiss robin round. Once in either bracket, a single loss means elimination from the tournament. Once both brackets are going they will be the same size each round.

...and I still think limiting the swiss robin rounds to 2 or 4 hour entries will help with that endurance issue. Maybe 2 hours for the first one and 4 hours for the n00b Hades one? WAR IS HELL!

So there are a couple new concerns that came up in conversation or mind... bitpacks and forfeits

The simulator should account for forfeits; maybe a 5% chance for anyone to forfeit in any pitfight.

Bitpacks could be 'borrowed' from previous OHBs though I don't believe each format has bitpacks in this regard. Crazy music theory bitpacks might not be ideal (or maybe they are!). Really I think only the `remix` format needs a bitpack for sure.

Also, there has been some talk about replacing the 2nd round Swiss Robin event in the n00bs Hades bracket with a couple XHBs.

Basically, things are still in flux. I'll be trying to get a foundation going for a complete refactor of the battle engine this weekend.

Hey, I just wanted to let folks know I spent a bunch of time on Saturday working towards this goal. I completely gutted the battle class and have been rebuilding it from scratch, pulling in what I deem reusable from the old code. There's still a lot of finer points to get caught up, but making OHBs run on the same battle class will most likely be next. This, and the new period classes, should make for greater flexibility in the battle engine moving forward. No more parallel development for different battle types! :u

I totally fell behind on this. I've been quiet about it. I didn't want to admit defeat even when I was obviously past a date that would leave enough time for it to run before Winter Chip. I've got a branch going with the refactor. It's a grind right now refactoring the major engine and the ohb engine into one (templates included). Didn't help that I recently got totally distracted by taking a synth electronics workshop/course/class. The DroneButt™ is almost fully functional! BotB WILL have a tournament, but it won't be in the now that is 2017. And now I'm gonna get back to work on my VIC20 tracker.
