    Considering the significant amount of KZ streams that have been popping up and the interest of another KZ Cup, I thought we should get started with something small and work our way up. So, what I want to do is to host a 16-man KZ tournament on my private server. It would be streamed, and the winner would win something. What should it be? donations = prize? $5 steam gift card? etc.... I'm using this as a way of gauging interest in regular tournaments, much like XJ does with their monthly tournaments..

    I would encourage everyone to sign up. You can sign up here. Sign ups are closed.
    Sign ups will end on Monday, December 19th.

    To view who is currently applying to play, see who is playing here.

    The first tournament would be hosted on Friday, December 23rd, 2016, at 3pm CST, at twitch.tv/ijjust (Time and date can be adjusted, but weekends aren't possible for me because of work)
    It will be best of 3 until the grand finals, which will be best of 5.

    The maps will be:
    kz_gigablock_go
    kz_haki_v2
    kz_hellinashop
    kz_pineforest
    kz_void
    kz_sunset_od
    kz_peak_global

    Rules:
    Each player gets 2 vetoes. In the grand finals, each player gets 1 veto.

    This will be a 1v1 !challenge pro run. You will join the server against the person you'll be playing, !challenge each other on the maps you didn't veto, and then you race. The first player to finish wins. If you attempt to cheat or circumvent the !challenge 10 second timer at the beginning, you will be disqualified. In fact, any form of teleporting or skipping using teleporting is considered cheating.

    Current prize pool for all tournaments: $500

    Pool will be split across two tournaments. This tournament's pool is $212.
    1st place: 70% of winnings
    2nd place: 20% of winnings
    10% left over for fees.

    How many veto's does each player get? Would it be 2 each, bringing it down to 3 maps, or would it be 1 each then 1 choice of map each then a random 3rd map?

    I am interested in joining in on this, but I don't know if I will be available on that day - I will be moving house so no idea if I'll have time or have my PC set up at that time.

    Would it be at all possible to have a greater variety of maps rather than a few short combo maps?

    It's hard to say, because I am moving house around that date, and am going to a concert that night, so I most likely wont be available until after christmas since I'll also have some family friends over for christmas. So if that date works best for others, then dw about me.

    Well see the thing is,
    So if there were longer maps in the map pool, it'd be boring to watch as soon as a run is over 3 minutes sorry bud

    I was talking specifically about producing videos that people would be interested in watching. In a tournament situation you are going to get a similar quality of run regardless of map, since you only get 1 attempt.

    It's also more competitively viable to have longer maps in competition in my opinion since one fall =/= guaranteed loss and people are forced to maintain their speed for longer. That way you get a truer representation of people's skill levels.

    A few things to note:
    • It would be cool to stream it on tv/kzclimb (bigger reach and sub button hehe)
    • Will there be casters?
    • Will there be demo recording? (Unlike in the kzclimb cup so that vids afterwards are an actual thing if something good turns out)
    Apart from that great initiative and good luck :)

    @ivansky ye man i too think that in the first 1.6 cup only wr holders joined. give it time. ppl are sceptival at first. also not everyone has that much time a few days before christmas
