This will be a terminator tournament where the winner will be the player with the most points. The points are acquired as follows: 1 point for every player you eliminate 3 points for winning a game (or only 2 if you win by eliminating only 1 player)
Players: 24 Map: Japan Game Settings: Automatic, Sequential, Chained, Flat Rate, Sunny, NO Trench, 30 rounds. To avoid long stalemates, I will restrict games to 30 rounds. At which point the winner will receive only 2 points for winning. Any eliminations between round 1 and 30 will count normally.
Structure: Each player will play a total of 8 6-player games. These will be played 8 at a time (or 2 at a time for each player). The players will be seeded randomly using random.org. After 32 games, the player with the most points wins. In case of a tie, the person with the most games won will be the winner. If that number is also a tie, the player with the least "deaths" will win.
Freemiums are free to join provided they have 2 open game slots at all time. This is a trial run for this tournament style and structure. If it runs well, I may repeat it. I tried to make it in a way that encourages winning the games, but also rewards eliminations. If you run into problems during the tournament please send me a PM.
Are the 2 points for winning while eliminating only 1 player in addition to the 3 points for winning the game or in place of the 3 points? It's unclear if the 2 is a substitute value (a penalty) or an additional value (a bonus).

It is a substitution. I edited the post to clarify it a bit. If a player wins but eliminates only the last player he/she only gets 2 points for winning instead of 3. They still get 1 point for the elimination for a total of 3. number of eliminations (1) + 2.
If they eliminate 2 or more AND win the game their score for the game would be: number of eliminations + 3.
