Default Mini tournament idea

Ok, I have this idea for a mini tournament for Din's Curse that I think would be interesting. First off there won't be any prizes or anything, it's just for fun.

My idea is that I generate a hardcore character with a random hybrid class and a random name and stick him into a random world. Then I exit the game, zip up the save, and post it on a thread in the forums. Everyone has a week to play the character and see how high of a level they can get him to. People that are playing would post the character export in the thread when they die or at the end of the week. At the end of the week I do a top 10 list or something for everyone and possibly start the next mini tournament.

So basically it would be a short hardcore tournament, but where everyone uses the same character and starts in the same world.

At least while everyone is in that same starting world, it might be interesting to see how similar the results turn out.

What do you all think? If there is enough interest I might start this on Monday.

I'm in.

Course, I'd be in even more, if it meant winning a license of one of your other games (DoP or Kivi)

Sorry sorry.. I just like to know I'm competing for something, not just a top 10 list.

But yeah, I'm in. For sure. Sounds like fun!

I'll play. Sounds like a great idea!

Are we allowed to start from scratch if we die? Or do we only get the one playthrough?

I worry that if I introduce prizes that I would just be begging for people to cheat.

We really could go either way with the can you start more than once thing. I would lean towards letting people have multiple tries so a lucky shot doesn't kick you out on the first day.

I'm totally, unfreaking-believably on-board for this!!!

As for not allowing multiple tries... how would you even govern that?

I'm in, sounds really fun. I'm also all for multiple tries with the character, I have only one request, if you could twitter about the tournament because I don't check the forums that much, looking forward to playing

I'll post on the forums, twitter, and facebook at least when we start.

Sounds very cool. It'll be fun to face challenges outside my comfort zone, AND be able to compare my successes/failures with others.

Maybe you could consider formally coding something like this into an expansion or sequel. Civilization Revolution has a function like that, where every week a random map and starting set-up is made available to everybody, and there's a leader-board so players can try to make the best of that situation.
