I was curious if there was any interest in doing a Giant Bomb Cup. It would be a Rocket League tournament set up to be in the same format as the FIFA World Cup.
Ideally we would have 32 teams, but we could figure out a way to make it work if it was less than that. Each team would consist of 3 players. The teams would be placed into 8 groups of 4. The top 2 teams from each group would move to the knockout stage, where it would be a single elimination bracket until there is one team left.
The tie breaker in the group stage would be total number of goals scored in the group stage. If that is also a tie, then it would be the number of goals conceded. If that is also a tie, it would come down to a coin flip.
We could wait until Cross Play is enabled so that we would be able to maximize our player count with both PC and PS4. Or if there is enough interest, we could do separate tournaments for the different platforms. We would also have people stream the matches on Twitch (or whatever streaming platform you prefer) so that the community can watch the matches.
This was an idea I came up with today while watching the Us vs. Them video, so if it is dumb, let me know. But I wanted to run this idea by the community. It seems like this is a popular game right now, and I thought this would be a fun thing for the community to do.
