We have seen a lot of the same tournaments over the last few years, ICE, BOTE, HHT, Big Game. They have been staples over the years. I have an old idea with a new twist. Hear me out on this.
2 on 2 Double Elimination Tournament.
Partners will be randomly chosen each round.
Small sector game 3k-5k Universe
Small game time limit. 4-8 hours. (Extern to happen around 1/2 way point)
Unlim or High Turn.
1 Starting level 6 planet
4 Ship Types
Published point system for ties
Other ideas that have been put out to me
* Rotating Edits every round
* Bonus round with all players
* Add aliens
* Add Wanderer Planet
Anyone have some interest in this?
I'd mostly likely play, depending on timing -- the only challenge for me is that something like this is very time committing because it's short -- you can't really be afk during an 8 hour game, and if you have RL things to do on the day of your game, you're out of luck.
I like the idea of a multi round tournament and I like the idea of changing edits every round. What about making the games a little longer, like 48 hours? It gives more opportunity for strategy versus "the first one to surround dock wins".
I'd also suggest unlim versus high turn because if a foton takes you out for the game, it could be over very quickly. if you can potentially get a pod picked up, that makes it more interesting.
