I need help naming a tournament.
« on: September 10, 2015, 12:16:42 PM »
All right so using our Gen Con rewards, ambassador rewards, and some just plain cash The Charlotte Mage Warriors are doing a mini-event before our big Wounded Warrior event in November. Sadly I can't think of a decent name for it. So in the interests of getting some ideas and entertaining my fellow forum members I'm open to suggestions. Here is the premise

-This tournament is completely free.
-This tournament is open ONLY to new Mage Wars players or at the very least those who never get to play.
-We'll do some side events for experienced players. I dunno maybe some Domination.

Basically we got 2 core sets, one copy of everything up to Forged in Fire, bunch of miscellaneous stuff like dice etc and a play mat to throw at this. The idea is to grow the community and especially get more folks for Wounded Warrior.

So far my only ideas for a name have been "Newb Tournament" and "Scrub Battle Royal." I wanna avoid using "newb" and "scrub" if possible as I'm told those aren't good ideas.

First thing that came to my mind was something like "The Elevator", as you try to take them to a higher level.
Some other names that might or might not be complete useless: Newborn Masters, Training Day, To be continued, Don't pay to win.

I sorta like Training Day. Maybe some variation on that?

Mage Wars Rush Day Tournament? Referring "rush week" at universities where chapter houses recruit new members.

The Gateway, Beginnings, Mage Wars: Genesis, Mage Wars: Awakening, The Illumination, Gate to Voltari, Gate to Hell, etc.

Most of these sound like Move Titles, but I think a few are neat.

I think Gateway to Voltari is my favorite.

Training Day is a really good one too. Or how about something totally original like... Mage Wars: Academy.

Ok so far I like Parade of the Unbled, Mage Wars Rush Day, and maybe The Challenge of the Mage Warriors.

Rush Day has a good flavor since the vast majority of these new Mage Warriors ARE college students.

You're a grizzly, so a bear, right? You're doing tournament for noobs and noobs needs to be raised like kids, right? So why not name tournament after bear children - cubs? Something like Silver Cubs Tournament.

Hehe actually as I won't be judging this event it gets funnier. See JasonBourneZombie is judging it so we'd get something like: Newly Risen or some such goth.
