What is the iCM Forum Manger's Cup?
Instead of countries competing to claim dominance this Cup is all about the Managers. Who is the superior Forum member at suggesting movies for the masses to watch? Who has little known gems that everyone else should watch? By giving everyone an equal footing by not allowing a manager to have a more noted country (e.g. France compared to Tajikistan) we give everyone a chance to compete and get what they want seen.
Format and Rules Discussion
Until we know how many managers sign up we can't officially decide which format to follow but I assume it will be something along the lines of the World Cup idea of a group stage (or 2) followed by a knockout tournament. As to the rules my initial thought when I posted the idea of chosen movies was they had to be <500 checks and on no official lists but this is open to discussion. Below are the points of discussion I think we need.
- Check Count The World Cup limit was <1000 but as I said I feel the forum favourite <500 checks is more preferable here.
- Official Status My idea was to allow us to promote unofficial films but there are so many underseen official films that it may be seen as an unnecessary rule. We could also add in a sliding check rule depending on how many official lists.
- Round-to-Round Restrictions In the World Cup we weren't allowed to use the same director twice. I was thinking for this cup we could do something like no country twice, or to be more restrictive, no continent twice or at least the 24 "zones" we developed for the monthly challenges.
- Mario Gaborović
- Nathan Treadway
