CDM 2021 / SMK PAL Championships 2021 (CDE/SMKAS part 2)?!
« le: 24 mai 2021, à 13:12:05 »
Quick announcement about the hotel arrangements:
There is a new hotel that opened up right next door to the Esports game arena (like literally 2 minutes walking distance). It's not a cheap one, but Thomas managed to negociate a bulk discount. He reserved 10 rooms (but they can still be cancelled if no one wants the deal). https://www.stadsherbergalphen.nl/?lang=en

The price he got for us is 60 euros per night per person. They're 2 person rooms and breakfast is included. Please let me know if you're interested in this deal so I know what to tell Thomas. The alternatives are still the Avifauna hotel which is less expensive, but much further away (it was in the 35 euros per person range last year if I remember correctly), arranging your own Airbnbs or crashing at a local karter's place (limited capacity and people outside of NL have priority).

If you need any help arranging your stay in Alphen, don't hesitate to drop me a message!  :)

Great news, hopefully we'll be able to be enough to officially (Geo) label it as an official championship this time.

I see what you did there (Label lol)  :D
If we get ScouB on top of all the names listed it's almost a no brainer. But even now it's not looking too bad. Let's wait a little to see how things develop.

Dear karters, time for an update regarding the summer tournament!

First the really good news: Thomas has confirmed that the Esports Game Arena in Alphen wants us, will be open and is available for the suggested dates (16th-21st August)!  :etoile:

This event will have a 32 participants cap. Because we’re expecting more interest than for last year’s SMKAS event we have to consider two different approaches for sign-ups. Normally it is first come, first served. Normally this is not a problem as the number of participants is usually a bit below the 64 person cap. And last year for SMKAS it was well below the 32. This year might be different, I can sense people are hungry for SMK. We may decide to reserve a few wildcards for top players / core community members that might be forced to sign up late (during the pandemic this is even much more understandable than before), depending on how the (pre) sign-up process goes.
Lars is still interested in giving us a daily lunch & dinner deal. So yes, his restaurant survived the year, cheers for Lars!  :plume: We’re still discussing the details of the deal. Last year it was ~8 euros per meal, which is very generous. Hopefully he will offer us a similar deal.

Tickets will be available in two different packages (I’m also still discussing the venue price with Thomas), one with and one without lunch options. We’re also discussing a deal with the local hotel (in the same street). It’s expensive if you arrange your own traveling plans (unfortunately), but maybe Thomas can talk us into a decent bulk deal.
Now on to the second big reason I’m posting this announcement: we’re keen on learning who of you is up for this event, so we can start planning accordingly. I will be posting a (pre) sign-up list and updating it.
I also want to know if you can bring equipment (SNES + SMK or even TV(s) if you live in the Netherlands). Disclaimer: Anyone put on the list is interested in joining and has the intention to join if circumstances allow. Obviously we’re not dealing with certain sign-ups this year (though arguably we never really are anyway).
Once we have a list of the karters interested, the discussion whether this event should be labeled a SMKAS part 2 or CDE 2021 can be held in a meaningful way. Until this is clearer we at the IASMK feel it’s premature to have such a discussion, simply because not all the relevant factors are on the table.

Cheers,
KVD

Doing a French based event somewhere this year would be nice of course (for those that cant go to NL), but I'll leave that up to you all of course.  :D
International travel is indeed complicated and probably will be for some time, but it is possible. Within the bounds of Europe at least.

مرحبا سالم ، مترجم جوجل يعمل  ;D

Discussions on the TT format change took place on this forum, at live events (Winter Cup and ASMKC), on the Discord and in the international SMK WhatsApp group. The vast majority of people that engaged were in favor of treating TT equally and justifying this by extending the Last Karter standing. There were a few voices against (a handful of French only), but I'm sure everyone understands it's unreasonable to expect unanimous support for every decision. We then field tested this new TT implementation at CDM 2019 and the extended format at SMKAS 2020 and it was very well received both times.

For the sake of clear communication then, it is possible we did not formally announce the final decision in this matter (even though the discussion ended over a year ago), but here it is: TT will be implemented in the fashion described by the rules outlined above in any tournament organized by the IASMK going forward.

I don't know how we can possibly be more transparent than this.  ;D

Bonjour Narnet.  :plume:  :D

C'est une blague, c'est ça ?  ::)

Unfortunately the real joke is what happened when none of the people that are so vocal about the rules stepped up to save the FFSMK when it was dying / disbanding.  :-X

But let's not just point fingers here. What you say is true: this version of the rules document was proposed first in September 2020 in a period when focusing on the next tournament was difficult. We can of course empathize with this point you make.
You mentioned nothing of the Swiss system in your first post in this topic. You just referred to the fact that SMKAS was not a CDM (which we all agree on to begin with) and the old TT coefficient discussion, which is the one thing that has been debated extensively in the community more than a year ago (starting January 2020 to be precise). Discussions on the TT format change took place on this forum, at live events (Winter Cup and ASMKC), on the Discord and in the international SMK WhatsApp group. The vast majority of people that engaged were in favor of treating TT equally and justifying this by extending the Last Karter standing. There were a few voices against (a handful of French only), but I'm sure everyone understands it's unreasonable to expect unanimous support for every decision. We then field tested this new TT implementation at CDM 2019 and the extended format at SMKAS 2020 and it was very well received both times.

For the sake of clear communication then, it is possible we did not formally announce the final decision in this matter (even though the discussion ended over a year ago), but here it is: TT will be implemented in the fashion described by the rules outlined above in any tournament organized by the IASMK going forward.

The other changes were first suggested in the September 2020 topic (and some of them were also field tested and well received at SMKAS a month earlier). We intended to test the Swiss system at SMKAS, but it didn't make sense to do so with only a dozen players. So I think it is fair that these changes can still be up for discussion. I apologize for my tone making them seem almost final (I was mostly referring to the TT part there, which is the only thing you addressed in your first post). We have been discouraged by the lack of supportive messages about SMK events on this forum, so that may have triggered my tone a little. You say the window was 5 days, but the window was never closed so it's been open for at least 6 months. By the way, the proposed switch from Belgian to Swiss system is also largely born out of pragmaticism. I doubt even Djo (the creator) knows exactly how the Excel code works behind this system and of the people in the IASMK organisation only Patrick can sort of run it. And when I say sort of, I mean he does run into trouble with bugs and stuff almost every time it is used.

I will say the odds are high that this summer's SMK tournament will be a SMKAS part 2 and not an official Championnat (again), so it will give us one more opportunity to field test the new format and this time hopefully with a higher number of participants. For the sake of clear communication once again then: the format and associated rules that are being suggested and tested are not just for a spinoff tournament series. The intent is clear here: if the format is approved it will be applied to any SMK tournament organized by the IASMK tournament going forward (including CDM 2022, etc). I hope that is clear.  :)  If you or anyone has any questions or remarks about the switch to a Swiss system or other proposed rules, now would be the time.

CDM 2021 / SMK PAL Championships 2021 (CDE/SMKAS part 2)?!
« le: 05 avril 2021, à 21:16:31 »
@ Narnet and ScouB, I did not imply that SMKAS 2020 should be considered a CDM retrospectively. I just said that it was the de facto PAL SMK championships of 2020, that is hard to deny. It had much more of an official tournament structure than the Winter Cup (for example no Jey importing his drunk friends in the middle of the event  ::)), regardless of who participated. I'd like to eventually see SMKAS (and ASMKC 2019 & 2020 and future editions) to be added to the historical SMK tournament result archives at http://www.ffsmk.org/. Obviously NOT as CDMs, but both as standalone SMK championship series. This becomes even more crucial if we do decide to call the 2021 edition (if there will even be one) SMKAS 2.0 instead of CDE. I'm perfecty fine with NOT labeling it an official Championnat event btw, if that's the general community vibe. Then it'll just be SMKAS 2.0. For the record I also agree that a 15 people Gasny event would not have been a CDM in 2020.

About the rule changes, they were proposed more than a year ago on this very forum and no one bothered to reply. The window to object against this has long closed. I mean, feel free to do so, we will listen, but likely won't change them at this point (unless it becomes a very vocal majority).  :)

Also, please let's focus on the important message here: there might be an SMK event this year.  <3

First off, sorry for the English message, but DeepL is your friend!  ;) https://www.deepl.com/en/translator

Hello fellow karterrrs!

It’s almost April already and no news about a potential SMK PAL Championships this summer. The reasons are obvious to anyone, it’s just very hard to plan any kind of meet-up involving more than 5 people while the COVID pandemic has not been resolved. However, there is reason for cautious optimism (vaccinations!). We as IASMK are planning to set the wheels into motion for a PAL SMK Championships in August, in the style of CDM/CDE/SMKAS. It probably will not surprise you when I say there are a lot of uncertainties, but we can at least share the provisional concept we’re aiming for.

Location: Esports game arena (very likely the most suitable location, assuming they’ve reopened and are allowed to organize an event for an arbitrarily large number of people)

Dates: 3rd week of August as usual (16th-21st August). Just so people that are interested can take those dates off.

Rules: Here is the document for the tournament: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/423885073285251074/825734832293806110/CDM_rules.txt

In all likelihood this will NOT be a full-fledged CDM (due to some intercontinental traveling restrictions expected to still be in place), but if this event takes place it will be the de facto SMK PAL championships of 2021; very much like SMKAS turned out to be for 2020 in retrospect. Whether we will call this a CDE (and count it for the official Championnat statistics) or a SMKAS part 2 is still up in the air and also depends on how the community decides to view the event to take place. There may still be a limited cap on how many people are allowed to participate, though this is impossible to predict in advance. The normal year CDM cap is 64 btw.
If you have any questions or remarks, please let us know. We’ll try to set the wheels in motion with the Esports arena soon (fingers crossed they survived the pandemic in ok health, both literally and figuratively).

Karel on behalf of the IASMK

Salut a tous, j'ai l'impression que c'est galère pour reprendre la suite du site non NBT.
Je m'y suis remi un peu cette semaine j'ai battu mon PR MC1 mais je ne sais pas a qui l'envoyer.

Du coup si jamais vous avez personne je veux bien essayer de m'occuper du site Non NBT mais j'y connais pas grand chose en codage. Sous Wordpress seulement j'arrive a faire quelque chose.

Voilà, je suis candidat au cas ou
