So I had this crazy Idea, and I wanted to see what you guys think. I could set the corp size to 3 players, which would force everyone to Mega Corp... and corps are not required to identify themselves, so you wouldn't even know which corps were aligned.

HHT has always been one of those good tournaments. Let's try not to destroy it.

I voted No, I was kinda looking forward to a more normal tourney.

That being said I liked your edit for the big game with the photon pause.

It really changed the dynamics and took away the photon script being the be all and end all of tradewars. Being able to actually get out and risk some ship vs ship combat knowing you have that small grace period to GTFO before a photon came in was great. Felt more old school and may not have been everyone's preference.

Great idea, but some Crazy Ideas are better contemplated than initiated. :mrgreen:

Mega always was a pain in the tuckus. We only did it then because we didn't know the mega rob bug yet.

I'm torn on this one. I can see the exciting part of this, but it would be pretty obvious after a day or 2 who the mega corps were. Would take the mystique of the game away. Great idea but don't think it is polished enough.

Like I said, it was a crazy idea :)

We will do it on another tournament, but not HHT.

I've always liked the idea of a solo tournament. Maybe someday I'll play again and try it out. Heck, Black Sun is on a hard drive around my house somewhere....

Solo tournament is a great idea.

I reckon with no death delay and a max death limit.

Also play with the photon settings as we won't have pgrid. Whatever Micro had for the previous tournament would be perfect. So you can actually grid if your quick, won't get photoned but maybe pdropped.

Sign me up!

Oh and Micro, I just realized the beauty of the mega corping, everyone photoning their friends when they hit their own grid.. haha.. Though not that hard to manage. Or even mothing tricky if you want everyone involved :) Suddenly the idea is growing on me..
