I created a Knockout Tournament dedicated to allrounders (or basically anyone that wants to participate). I postet about this on facebook and I will just copy paste the post here. IMPORTANT NOTE: We will close the registration at 128 competitors, so there are 16 free spots so far. Since there will be people in the tournament without facebook, I will post the new rounds on facebook AND here in this Thread. Good luck!


"
EVERYONE WILLING TO PARTICIPATE JUST FILLS IN THIS FORMULAR: https://goo.gl/forms/zG6i4Li1rCQ72Huo1
. DEADLINE IS SUNDAY 7. OKTOBER. The AKT will start on tuesday (9.Oktober). If you choose more than 3 events I will pick the first 3 events on the list. If you pick less, than that will remain that way.
I will make the knockout tree on monday and whoever hasnt registrated until then wont be able to participate. For the knockout tree I will take your IDs and not your names, because it is a lot easier to make the tree then.
On Monday I will make the knockout tree with this software: https://challonge.com/de/tournament/bracket_generator
(it was the first to come up, if you know something better then feel free to pm me)
START OF THE ROUND:
I will post all infos for the current round until tuesday. I can't make a specific time because of university but since you all have more then 5 days to participate thats ok I hope.
(Maybe a mod could pin the current round?)
I will include:
-The current state of the knockout tree
-Scrambles for all events
-The 3 events that both cubers have to do for every single battle. (they will be chosen at random)
-Information for participation like Result entry rules and so on
SEEDING:
I will make the seeding according to kinchranks. The export will be from this week probably so there can be slight differences to the actual export when the seeding is made.
RESULT ENTRY:
When you are done with ALL EVENTS, just comment in the following format:
[WCA-ID]
Eventname: [result]
Eventname: [result]
Eventname: [result]
[result] stands for the result that is important for the battle. (Single for FMC and BLD Events, Average/Mean for all other events)
For Average/Mean battles please also send the best single so we can do some stats in the end.
if you didnt enter results for a event then you automatically lost the event. This means that you could also just enter 2 events if you think you will win anyway and you dont want to to the 3rd event. When both cubers don't hand in any result, both get disqualified and their place in the tree will be a free pass to the next round.
For ties where both cubers entried a result I will determine the kinch score average according to WCA world records and the cuber with a better kinch proceeds to the next round.
Like it is with the Registration comment here, I will make a Entry comment on the posts for the rounds.
DEADLINE FOR RESULT ENTRY IS SUNDAY EVERY WEEK. LIKE WITH REGISTRATION I WILL MAKE THE NEW ROUND ON MONDAY AND WHOEVER DIDNT ENTER HIS RESULTS UNTIL THEN AUTOMATICALLY LOST HIS BATTLE.
There will be a battle for 3rd place.
I hope I didn't forget anything."

If you are not in Cyoubx friends on facebook, but you registered, then write a post here. I will not post the weekly update if no one from here participates.

I signed up and I would like updates here.

When I was choosing events from the checklist, I assumed it was 3 events to ban or not do. If I did this wrong, let me know so I can file another form.

The Allrounder Knockout Tournament started!
To see the actual matchings look at the knockout tree here:
https://challonge.com/akt2018
This will be a weekly competition, we will post new rounds until Monday (23:59 GMT+2) and you have time until Sunday (23:59 GMT+2) to entry your results.
Note that the tournament will start on Monday (8.10.2018) and we will give out scrambles then.
If you have questions, please hurry to ask them so we can handle this BEFORE the tournament starts and
we can make things clear for everyone BEFORE someone does something wrong in the first place.
Since I am organising this with Malte Ihlefeld he is also in power of answering to your questions.
I will comment every edit to this post in one comment if I have to edit something.
Many newer cubers somehow didn't get what BANNING means and banned the only events that they can do.
I thought that it is absolutely clear that banning events means NOT getting them.
I talked with some cubers and literally no one misunderstood that so I won't change anything about this now.
IMPORTANT NOTE: WE WILL DISQUALIFY EVERYONE THAT DIDN'T ENTRY HIS RESULTS ACCORDING TO THE FORMATTING RULES UNTIL THE DEADLINE.
However if we see wrong results we will probably try to contact you on fb or in the forum so you can reentry.
How to compete:
Step 1: Search for your match on this post. (Will be on the bottom of the post)
Step 2: Search your matchnumber (marked red in this picture: https://i.imgur.com/BP6hj7e.png ) in the tree
Step 3: Open the scramble document: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ghWfrd9ZLmGFsG6bnpJpPBu6irdUN_S9
Step 4: Compete in the given events with the given scrambles and a timer of your choice.
(The timer will have to calculate mean of 3, average of 5 and single, since you have to write them into the result entry)
Step 5: Fill in the formular https://goo.gl/forms/HNKaB12WTkh6LQ5W2 with your results. READ THE FORMATTING RULES
(Note that for FMC you only write down the number of moves and you have to give scramble, solution and explanation on the bottom of the formular)

O That make s big difference for me. I thought that I was supposed to chose 3 events that I want to do and leave the ones that I do not want to blank. My bad, and I guess that I will be doing some other events instead : )

Edit: It is to late @ichcubegerne to change the events up, right?
What could you possibly think for the description "Choose events to BAN?" You were not the only on, but I just dont get how you can mess this up and also it seems that every at least decent cuber got it right^^ Since the events got published it is too late, sorry
But you have a different state against Walker anyway. You can hope for him to DNF too tho^^
