Trying something new here, I’ve set up some Round Robin tournaments on Challonge for the community that anyone can join and participate in.
For now I’ve done one for each game we’re running at the ranbats, but we can do more if people want.

WHAT IS IT?
An organized way to get more people in the community playing together, in an effort to help each other improve.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Go sign up to participate, you will need to create a Challonge login, please make your username something people can easily identify you by so they’ll know how to get in contact with you and set up your match.
Once signups have ended we will have a round robin tournament set up, get with people and set up a time to play your games (online or in person) and record the results.
I don’t want to split or limit this by system, but be warned I think we have more Xbox users. If you can’t find a way to play a match against someone then just move on, when we end the league we’ll record all these matches as draws.
We’ll run this for a few months at least or until all the games are completed, there are no prizes or anything but it will be a good way to see where you stand. If this goes well we can run one every so often and you’ll be able to track your progress.
Round Robins are limited to 40 people, if we go over that we’ll create another tournament and even things out.
Play a first to five match using tournament standard rules (best 2/3, loser can change characters, no gems, etc.)
HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THIS
After you’re done playing have a discussion with your opponent (in person, voice chat, Facebook, etc.) about the series, both of you can talk about your strategies going into the match, how they changed during, tips on the matchup, things to improve on, anything that can help people level up. The more discussion the better, the idea is to get people talking and sharing ideas and feedback.
