The structure is pretty straight forward.
Some of you may remember from last year our attempt to have a BRB Madden Tournament to determine the blog's representative at the SBN tournament. It worked out better in theory than in practice. Nevertheless, I remain undetterred and am attempting to put together another blog-wide tournament! With that being said, I am soliciting entrants for the innaugural Battled Red Blog Madden Tournament. Join me after the jump for the details (note: this is a work in progress, all terms and conditions subject to change at my whim.)
Who: However many people want to sign up, we will figure out a way to make it work. I'll structure the tournament field accordingly, and if the numbers get odd - I may throw in group play (because soccer style stuff pisses Tim off!)
What: Madden 2011 on the Xbox 360. Unfortunately, cross-console play isn't possible and who owns a PS3 anyway? I am assuming more people are on 360, and besides the PSN will get hacked five times next week. No one wants to wait around for Madden 2012: Lockout Edition, either.
Where: "Obviously in cyberspace, DT." Or is it? Ok yes, the early rounds will be an honor system online. Report the scores to me as I can't monitor the games. But here's the kicker: I'm exploring the possibility of hosting the Final Four at a bar to be determined so being in Houston may be a pre-requisite depending on what we're able to schedule. Just imagine friends, a BRB get together centered around a video game final four! We are totally NOT reinforcing blogger stereotypes!
Rules: For the time being I'll say All-Madden, 5 minute quarters, play as whoever you want. If there are strong objections or suggestions, please feel free to post them below.
And that's it! I'd like to get an idea of who's interested, so please let me know. Assuming there is enough interest, I'll work out the logistics and get another post up in the near future.
Edit: Bumped and updated time. bfd
