I am hoping all other platforms (windows, windows phone,...) count too? As long as it has achievements, it counts, right?

One thing in the event of a tie (yes low probability) what would the tie breaker be based on i.e. achievements won, highest GS of top player. It's your event your decision especially if this goes into a second+ event(s) (hopefully) so there is no fuzziness of rules.
Before the second series? kicked out we'd have a big discussion about this one and what went well, what didn't and if we need new rules etc.

Tie breaks aren't something I've actually thought of, thanks for throwing a spanner in the works haha

What do people think of....

If Team A and Team B score exact same GS gain, then look at individuals in those teams and see who got the overall highest gain and give that team the win?
I'm fine with whatever rules you make its your contest. I just don't want to see a whinner if their is a tie.
As you said the rules can change after the first to see what work /doesn't work, so top individual in team to tie break is fine with me.
@Kaens & @QuiCkz Ninja: Nice to have you on boardSmile

@Mephisto4thewin apologies for the confusion Smile

We have 29 people so far signed up which means a lot of work for me. Futiles if this has a second outing I might look at your api thingy ma-jig (technical term), At the minutes I have a spreadsheet filled top to bottom with formula haha.

But...To anyone reading this. All you have to do is sign up and then play on your Xbox 360 or Xbox One, it's that simple!

So I haven't looked, but could you update the first post with the fleshed out rules if you hadn't already done so?

Also incase of two teams getting the same GS for the final? I think then you should do a one week or one day overtime for just those two teams yo come up with a clear winner. That would solve that.

Edit: you probably want to close signups a couple days before it starts, just to have time to enter/assign teams and get the baseline starting score.
Adding nothing constructive to a thread near you

What exactly is the point of this thread?

Then we will see how close to a scoreboard we can put together. If I can get the automated feed, then the scoreboard is just formatting. And maths...
You should start a new thread and save the first two or three post for editing stats and updates when this starts. We'll need somewhere to do the trash talking..
