    • Prince de Neufchatel
    • Bellona

      0
  3. 3. Fix amount of BR, team size can be anything (e.g. 2 4th rates vs 5 5th rates, like port battles)

Seeing that the group stage battles of the current tournament are starting to happen more regularly now, we could already think about the next tournament type, plan ahead :)

What would YOU like to see / participate in? Please vote.

Options

  • 1 vs 1
    • Possibly a "best of three" with 3 different ships (for the knockout stage at least) ?
  • 2 vs 2
  • 3 vs 3
  • 4 vs 4
  • Fix amount of BR, teams can bring as many players as they want to fill the BR (à la Port Battle)
  • Other?

Maybe next time we could get some gifts from @admin for the winners, in terms of paints (given some paints have recently given out for 'testing')

Whatever you do make it faster.

For example:

5 man roster

3vs3

2 days per match then next round

 

Or even tournaments just for one day. Single elimination 1 hour match length each 1,5 hours next match.

It should not take 6 weeks for 3 matches.

make it so that after waiting 6 weeks, Jon Snow and company can't sail downwind for 30 minutes and get a 'win

Too many people must work and don't have enough time for this kind of tournament.

thats why 5 man roster. If those tourneys happen more regularly like in other games people stop taking it super serious and just sign up to get some nice fights.

1v1 - make it a ship EVERYONE has slots on.  a surprise or a wasa.

Good idea.

Consider this, tho: Ships without stern chasers promote fights where it's generally better to keep your bow towards the enemy than your stern. I love the surp but imagine the tactics some could come up with...

I would really dig having a shoutcast guy in the matches, sport reporter style.

In Tribes matches way back in time we had that and it was awsome.

In the previous tourney every battle had two guys commentating and it added a lot imo, shame it's missing from this one.

As you might have noticed I'm not the best commentator, so yeah - if there are other volunteers regarding streaming / recording or just joining the lobby for some commentating, let me know.

I use none of those ships.

YOU might not, but if you want a large and diverse amount of players though in a tournament....you gotta pick the popular option.
