« Thread started on: Jun 12th, 2009, 10:29pm »

Ok fellas, we've been kicking the idea around to host a Tournament in Venge for a few weeks now.

I would like to propose a few new extras to throw in!

We would invite everyone - as usual

We would do a very old school type Tournament, no-holds-barred type games.

When your eliminated your eliminated!

Here is the kicker.. We will go ahead and list exactly what maps we will play and when!

This should make it one of the most competitive throw downs the venge community has seen or been part of in a LONG time!

This may help with drawing a bigger crowd and bring back some people to the Venge community!

What do you all think?! Please give us some feed back! If you think you have something to add to the kitty please post!

Any sane reply would be welcomed! What are your thoughts and ideas!?

I'm for it and I'd like to add something as well-


On top of pre-picked maps, in the middle of the tourny I'd like 2 rounds at once.. . Yes, you read that right.. I'd to add a new round to the tourny! "Marathon Runner!" A 30 Minute round!

What do ya think? It will take true grit and Iron!

As I started at SoE 3 yrs ago, it was a pure brawler unit - attrition/battle only. With every round lasting 30 minutes - nothing else! wink

Main reason we reduced brawl to 15 minutes nowadays, was average joy stick lifespan -
... and of course we are getting older too ... grin

I like the concept except for one thing; being eliminated means you are going to lose players.
Nobody wants to just sit and watch.
I think it is better if you have a format where everyone gets the chance to stay involved but not necessarily
win. angry

Sounds good Z! Your right, no one wants to sit and watch the rest go at it. So with the addition of Jacks 30 min round and letting everyone play even when eliminated sounds like good time fun to me!

I cant wait for this! Now we gotta decide on a Day!

Here's another variation idea:

Publish the map order in advance.

"Eliminate" the lowest two pilots each round.

Elimination only means that you are out of the running for the final duel. Everyone can continue to play until the final duel.

The duel decides the ultimate winner.

Awards are also announced (will take some time to tally) based on the rounds leading up to the duel. Most points, most kills, least deaths, most deaths.

Just an idea!

Another strange twist would be to borrow an idea from The Apprentice. In the final round, the two remaining mech players form teams from the eliminated pilots. The two top players are the commanders for each team. The final round then plays out as a Team Battle!

For the final team battle concept, you can just see who the winning team is... OR the goal of the game is to be the first team to kill the opposing commander 5 times (or the most times in the alloted time). Thus, the goal is to attack the other commander AND defend your commander. It would force each team to decide (as in CTF) who stays to defend and who goes out to attack. Or maybe the commander decides to take his whole crew over to the enemy to attack. It could lead to interesting tactics.

I REALLY like that idea!....that just plain sounds like fun...almost like a version of ESCORT....cept..ya aint gotta escort to a waypoint...just protect or support the commander!..

I like it....and I agree with Doc.....we will lose players in an alreqady very small player base....this keeps evetone engaged...EVEN IN THE FINAL ROUND!

Great idea Spiff!

So what does this pass do?

Does it protect me from being legged or do I get to leg other people at will? grin

I really like Spiffy's idea for the end game of the tournament and keeping "eliminated players in.

Strong work Spiffy.
