The Card Ideas Tournament II, known as the CIT-II or CIT2, is a tournament of card ideas made by different forumers. It is the successor of the Card Ideas Tournament ; however, both CIT and CIT3 are considered better than this one. The tournament held a total of 61 ideas, and its winner was Sammydict's card, the Outlaw, beating Ligimeon's Frost Avian in the Final, 31 votes to 22.


Summary

Results

Winner : Outlaw, by Sammydict

Silver Rank (2nd) : Frost Avian, by Ligimeon8

Honorable Mentions (Semifinals) : Spiritualist, by NightmareX ; Hydra, by SoumilDude ; Range Spell, by Bluballoon

Judges

The Judging Stage was cancelled in the CIT2 because most of the judges cancelled their participation. With only 2 judges left, Pseudovalide cancelled the Judging Stage and found another way to start the tournament.

Hosts

Hosted by the IFR Lead Group / Directed by Pseudovalide / Part of the CIT Series, as one of the 3 main events


Organisation

Tournament Organisation

61 ideas were registered ; Excalibur was removed as it was basically a joke post. 60 ideas were entered.

2 stages : Group ; Direct Elimination.



Group Stage : 60 ideas, put into 12 groups (5 ideas for each group), separated in 3 threads. Top 8 ideas in terms of total votes skip the Qualification Round. Top 2 ideas of each group advance to the Qualification Group (except the Top 8 mentioned above).



Direct Elimination Stage : Multiple 1v1 rounds. Qualification Round => Preliminary Round => Quarterfinals => Semifinals => The Final

Qualification Round : Top 2 ideas of each group (except the Top 8 ideas in terms of overall votes) are put in 1v1 matchups. 16 ideas are put in 8 matchups. The idea with the highest vote count in each matchup advances.

Preliminary Round : The 8 ideas that skipped the Qualification Round and the 8 ideas that won it are put in 1v1 matchups. The idea with the highest vote count in each matchup advances.

Quarterfinals : The 8 ideas that won their previous matchup are sent in another round of 1v1 matchups. The idea with the highest vote count in each matchup advances. One of the 4 Quarterfinals had a tie that couldn't be broken (Hydra Issue) ; both ideas advanced.

Semifinals : The 5 ideas that won their previous matchup are sent in another round of 1v1 matchups. Semifinal 3 held 3 ideas, however only 1 advanced. The idea with the highest vote count in each matchup advances to The Final.

3rd Rank Fight : Cancelled because of the Hydra Issue.

The Final : 1v1 matchup between the ideas who won their Semifinals matchup. The idea with the highest vote count wins the tournament.


Hydra Issue

The Hydra issue was a major issue in the CIT2, caused by a problem in the rules which led to a tie that couldn't be broken. On Quarterfinal 4, while Hydra had the upper hand in terms of total votes, removing the Fresh Spawn votes led to a tie. Since there were no Judge Ratings, making a real decision was impossible. Pseudovalide had to put both ideas from that Quarterfinal into Semifinal 2, and they were both eliminated by Frost Avian. This issue led to a massive forum argument, where Hydra's creator himself, SoumilDude, was banned after a message attacking Pseudovalide. It is considered one of the reasons why the CIT and CIT3 are considered better than this tournament.

Detailed Results

Group Stage

Note that 'Total votes' includes Fresh Spawn votes, which were not counted in the final ranking. Unfortunately, Pseudovalide lost the file with the real vote counts of each idea. Ideas in bold are the Top 8 ideas that skipped the Qualification Round. Hydra Issue votes are different from Challonge votes as Challonge does not support the system we had for the Hydra Issue.

Trivia

The second CIT is often seen as the worst CIT tournament ever made (while still being a good IFR tournament), for multiple reasons :-The Hydra Issue and the problems it created
-Judging Stage was abandoned after many judges left their job
-Strong level of drama near Quarterfinals, with a ban

The second CIT is the shortest CIT in terms of duration. Its total duration, from Registrations to the Results, is 1 month and 7 days (April 14th - May 21st) while CIT's is 1 month and 9 days (March 1st - April 10th), and CIT3's is 2 months and 13 days (May 30th - August 12th ; the longest by far).

The CIT2 is the 2nd biggest tournament ever made on the IFR Subforum and is the 2nd event of the CIT Series, followed by the Master's Final.
