a more important change would to have tournament on one evening only, and play teams back-to-back. regarding your improvement. Three best of threes is the best way by far, if the two teams have already played 1 of the best of 3s in the winners finals.
I prefer it because if all the matches are best of 3 there's no way for me to get confused, which is also why i think it makes more sense to have them all in the same format. There is also a chance of more match time, which is always a good thing
The new format(or old format) should include more and different maps. I mean are we trying to bring in new players or just host tourneys with only a few real teams. The way you host these tourneys is just catering to where private players have the most advantage. I say pick random maps from the "entire" list out of a hat and if people don't like it, good. It will make things more challenging for them.
I refuse to play another tournament match on pinnacle.
Always remember, those who play Shadowrun are better than those who don't.
I don't think all maps would work if pulling from out of a hat. The reason why the best teams win isn't because of us "mastering" the normal maps, it's because we work as a team. Some maps are okay, but silly for competitive/tournament play. There are only a few maps that should be considered for tournament play.
That is not the discussion that I want to talk about in this thread. I'll make another for that. I want to discuss if the current format for a best of 3 extending to a best of 7 is fair in everyone's eyes.
so you're telling me that if you held a tournament on any maps but lobby/nerve/pinnacle, the group of players you are mentioning would struggle. hahahahahaha. secondly the fact is, that no matter what the maps are - no-one outside of that group even enter tournaments, so whats the point. People are too scarred. And please dont kid yourself that a) these other maps havent been mastered by people who are good tactical players and b) that they have mastered the maps they play.
Yes you guys would struggle much more, because you would be taken out of comfort zone and people would most likely have a much better chance of winning. The fact is when pub players are playing what they know abit better propably would encourage them to atleast TRY. I would atleast
It sounds like you guys want more people to play in tournaments and there level of team play to improve. I have an idea that I have been thinking about for the past couple of weeks. I tried to get prophet to talk to me about it because I believe he is ideal to help me. I already have Locko and Reaxion who said they are interested in helping.
I think it would be a cool but I just not interested in doing it alone.
