::Edit:: Cup is over and the winner was PotU! Bow down before his awesome Super Mario Striker skills!
Thanks to everyone taking part, I know for myself there were some tense matches there (ok, there was nothing tense about the matches against Rami, I might as well just have taken the batteries out of my remote) and I hoped everyone enjoyed it. Providing we can play NTSC vs PAL we should set up a World Cup when the game's released there!
Thanks again folks.
It's rare we get a game before our NTSC friends, so let's take the opportunity to make them ever so slightly jealous. Up to now all talk has gone on in this thread:http://forums.penny-arcade.com/showthread.php?t=22141
. Chat about the game and so on should continue there!
Rules of the Cup!
Most of these have been stolen from: http://n-europe.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14466
so all credit to those guys. It seemed like a good enough system though.
- Each player must play their opponents both Home and Away (These can be done at seperate times if time is an issue)
- The person hosting (Home team) should set the game CPU to Level 3 (Rule updated as it seemed it was too easy with CPU Level 2)
- Games should be best of 5
- Matches should be set to 3 minutes
- No "cheats" enabled
- Stadium should be chosen by "Home" team.
- Matches should be organised as and when players can via PM or Instant Messaging service
- 3 Points for a win in normal time (in three minutes)
- 2 Points for a win in sudden death (over 3 minutes)
- 1 Point for a loss in sudden death
- 0 Points for losing
Knockout round and Final Rules
-2 series of one game (home and away)
-if the games a splitted count the goals the two games and give two points for each goal scored on the away pitch.
-if this results in a draw then it goes to penalties. Each player gets to make 5 unhindered Mega Strike attempts against the other. Most goals wins. In the event of a draw it goes into sudden death (i.e. each player alternates Mega Strikes until there is a clear winner).
Once we've had people register interest I'll organise the groups and add Wii Codes and Mii names to this post. Once the groups have been played out it'll go to knock out rounds.
Voice chat available on the Ventrillo server for those who want to talk during the game (or anyone who wants a running commentary of a game in progress!).
Any other comments/requests/people telling me this is a stupid idea please speak up!

Also, a small wii related prize will be given to the overall winner of the Cup! (Expect nothing special as it's coming from my pocket)
