Tourney Hosting

Are you interested in throwing your own tourney?  This page will contain links to cool articles and to software which I have found to be tremendously helpful!  This page will grow and evolve over time.

South Carolina Tournament Seeding Chart (MS Word .doc File)(Updated 2 September, 2009)

This is the seeding chart for top 8 in Street Fighter 4, BlazBlue, King of Fighters XII, Soul Calibur 4, and Super Street Fighter 2 HD Remix.  The points system is 1st place gets 8 points all the way through to 8th place getting 1 point.  It uses all of the results data that I have available (which is posted on the Tourney Results page).

Tourney Software:

tio Tournament Organizer (Freeware!)

tio_bracketTio makes it very easy to organize a tournament.  It allows you to keep a global list of players to add to different events within a tourney that you desire, it automatically generates brackets, it allows you to manage your gaming stations.  It even has easy features for managing prize pots, keeping track of who has paid for each event, and gives an automated breakdown of exactly what prize money each of your event winners should be paid depending upon which setting you use for pot breakdowns. It supports single elim, double elim, and round robin tourneys. There are many other features I’m sure I’m forgetting.

I cannot imagine a simpler to use or easier to learn piece of software for managing a tournament.  Download it and plan some mock tourneys with friends to get used to the software.  Best of all, it’s completely free!  You can download the latest version as well as a guide on how to use it at http://www.tiopro.com.
