Based on the rest of the rules you may want to reword this to :

Requirements: must take 1 plane from each nation, only allowed max 2 planes of each type per battle(EI: Heavy fighter, fighter, multi-role, and attack aircraft.)

 

Thanks, yes that is a better way to covey the intent. I'll update the rules when I have a minute.

Absolutely nothing wrong with it.  In fact, I agree with you that higher tiers would be more fun.

However, I have already stated why I think this is a better format at this time, given the struggles we are having with population and overall interest with the game.

Also, keep in mind how long it has been since we had an actual tournament, and look at the changes in the population and overall average skill level of the community since then.

 

I was just playing devil's advocate here, and wasn't challenging your right to express your opinion, which is just as valid as anyone elses.

I hope you decide to participate. You're a great pilot, and I'd love to see you join in on the festivities.

(You too, dity....come on, it won't kill you go slumming, LOL) :D

 

They're trying to talk me into participating, we'll see what happens. Depending on who signs up I wouldn't want us to jump in with a team of 5 and everyone hates us. Even though I'm pretty sure all of us will get wrecked at T6 since none of us play that jazz often.

Dity is going to look for the 122mm cannon on his machine as soon as he gets into the tourney. When he fails to find it he'll pop out of the commander's hatch to see what's going on and fall to his death.

I think it's a dam good layout and plan.  Make it go smoothly and turn it into a quarterly or even monthly tournament.  As it gains acceptance, run a veteran session for tiers 7-10

The length of the tournament is tied directly to the number of teams that join, that is why there is no specified end date.

 

I did give an example in the rules, with 16 teams entering, there will be an 8 consecutive day schedule.  That will get pushed further the more teams that join, because there will be more brackets to eliminate.

 

Once we have a handle on the registered teams, we will post a schedule.

We are hoping this will be successful, and a replacement for gunlion's MONTHLY tournaments.  We have tried to keep the administration to a minimal, so it should be easy to run.  Looking forward to putting this on again in September.

Item 2.1. The rosters should will be locked down on the roster of players that will participate. There can't be replacement players for that roster at all. Must be pulled from the 8 that signed up initially unless you only had 5 to 7 at the begiining of the sign-up, then you may add up to 8. But once a name is on that roster they cannot be replaced and cannot go to another team and play on their side. This needs close scrutiny.

I believe item 2.1.7 speaks to your concern.

 Once the captain has registered fully that team is considered complete and ready for seeding. NO CHANGES CAN OR WILL BE MADE TO THE TEAM OR ROSTER.

Here is an even better idea for player selection: All those that will play submit their names by a certain deadline and Ghost will randomly select the teams. Then when rosters have been made those individual teams will decided on who is their team captain. This way prior alliances and people who flight together most of the time will lose their advantage. Many people do not flight together in this game to start with. In other words take your chances....

Kpop and marco, I hope you see where this is already headed. The first things people said, in order:

 

1. Tiers are too low.

2. Admins should not play due to the amount of disputes there will be.

3. WG staff plans to rule on disputes.

4. Asking for a rewording of the requirements.

5. Complaint about the roster rules.

6. Complaint about the team selection.

 

Welcome to CCW 3.0?

 

Unbelievable.

It is something to think about for future tournaments, however I believe this idea has been brought up in the past and received a lot of negative feedback.

 

For this tournament, the team rosters are opened up to clans and non clans, or a mix of both.

 

People want to play with their friends, I think this is the best way to do it.  There is also language barriers to think about.

This was created since we had nothing going on, you are more then welcome to create your own idea and host a tournament with WG's support. I am not saying you have to participate in this one, however I am always open for future suggestions and ideas to help out with. As far as disputes and "CCW3.0" the format this is run on is totally different from clan wars. This is show up on time with the right planes and win.

Unbelievable.

 

I think we have responded to your list of concerns, the basis for the design of this tournament is to encourage participation, limit instances of disputes, limit the amount of administration required, and limit any conflict of interest.  This was also built on very successful Air Raid tournaments in the past.

 

We can see where we stand at the end and tweak the rules for the next one. If necessary.

I can see the negativity underlying your response.... It is no big deal to do this and surprised you shut down this idea immediately without further discussion. This reaks of an op team selection already in progress...example: DRACS and ACES. The two clans that flight together most often. I can almost predict which team(s) will get the prize full of DRACS and ACES. I say this not to be vicious but based on what I know about this game and it's clan player base. You say you want a younger player base to play...then make it random. player selection. It is no big deal to do.
