    March Madness Tournament 2006

    MARCH MADNESS 2006



    Congrats to ctranter on being this year's champion!!

    This is bracketed tournment in which each round players will be paired together and given the same stock image. Each person will then use this stock image somwhere in making an image of their own. Once submitted, Flashkit members will vote using a poll on a winner for each pairing who will advance to the next round. With each round the number of competitors is cut in half until there is just one person left who will be crowned winner!

    The idea for this comes from the american NCAA basketball championship tournament where the top 64 college teams compete in the same style bracketed tournament to determine the champion for that year. It is "march madness" because there is tons of games on TV the whole month, and many of them come down to the last seconds (or second, or tenth of a second!) and there are always underdogs that beat the higher seeded teams.

    After the first round, there will be 32 players left competing for FK glory! There will be 4 more rounds which will each reduce the field by half until there are only two players left. The last round will be the finals matchup between the two who have won their ways there.

    The thread from last years battle can be found here. Make sure to check out all the quality volleys from each round of last years tournament

    • Rotation allowed


    VOTING:
    • All members are encouraged to vote
    • A multiple choice poll will allow you to vote for your favorite image from each of the individual match ups for each round. Due to the large number of people in this battle, there will have to be multiple threads with polls. Make sure you vote in each of them
    • DO NOT VOTE MORE THAN ONCE! We can detect if you try to vote multiple times and will ban anyone caught doing so
    • Do not try and "sell" your image. All images in the polls are anonymous but it will not be tolerated if you go around telling people to vote for your image.
    • Please feel free to PM me about any voting concerns you may have. We would prefer that you PM me or one of the other Arena moderators rather than post your complaints in the public thread

    i just want to remind EVERYONE to sign up. this is for EVERYONE. i can understand why a noob may be frightened to sign up for the roll canvas or an interforum battle, but this is march madness, and for EVERYONE. a tournament like this only works if there is the drama of a low seed high-tailing for the final four.

    Take your time with it. I am in no rush.

    How many rounds did you want to go for by the way?

    Quick question.
    What kind of time limits are we looking at here?

    A week per round. You have 5 days to do the image followed by 2 days of voting. This might change however depending on what we think will make it run as smooth as possible
