Thinking of a tournament to pass the time till the next Community Clan Wars starts.

 

Rules will generally be the same as Air Raid 6 and 7 Double Elimination, but will update things like Maps, Tiers, Plane Restrictions, and Team Sizes.  I'll add some polls to this to see what everyone likes best.

 

Thinking of starting JAN 30.  Should run about a week to a week and a half.

 

Everyone's first question: Will there be prizing???  I'm not planning on prizing, this is just for fun and bragging rights and to pass the time till the next CCW.  If WG or anyone wants to donate prizing, that is a bonus, personally I would rather see prizing go to the CCW to keep that going.

Here are the rules used for AIR RAID 7.  Keep in mind these need to be updated to reflect the results from the tournament set up polls, this is just a starting point to get everyone familiar with how the tournament ran previously.  I'll leave the poll up till the weekend, update and post the final rule set on Sunday.

I doubt it would happen in the tournament, but maybe afterwards if the best players from each team will participate in a sort of "All Star" battle.

I have added 4 more questions to the bottom of the poll, please update your votes for these as well:

 

Type Of Tournament (Bracket Setup)
If Two Stage Round Robin Should All Teams Move Up or Just Top Teams?
How many battles should determine the victor of each round?
How many battles should be scheduled each week?
 

Here is a link to the AIR RAID 7 tournament to see how a single stage double elimination bracket would work: http://challonge.com/WOWP_AIR_RAID_7

 

Someone suggested having a round-robin stage which would allow more battles and you would end up facing each team at least once.  This would extend the event out over several weeks.  Here is a link to the Challonge website http://challonge.com/  have a look for yourself on how a Two stage Round-Robin + Elimination bracket would work.

 

The more battles per week, the shorter the event will be, but harder to manage availability of your players.  The less battles, the longer the event will run, but it may be easier to have a set schedule and availability.

 

The more battles per night to determine the victor of the round might mean that you are sitting in a training room for 2-3 hours depending on how smooth it goes.

 

Please VOTE and make WGNAmerica great again.

Hide enemy aircraft is a joke, since both teams are revealed at the start of the match.  Like in tanks, planes should not be revealed until spotted.

I agree, but we don't have that function in WOWP.

 

I would also urge people to stay away from the hide aircraft models in the training rooms, it is really not that big of a deal, and it would make setting up the rooms, and each team getting ready go so much faster.

 

But I'll do whatever people vote for.

True, but having the ability to see the enemy plane pre-game means that you have a chance to readjust your line up, if it's on, it's would help prevent people jumping out the training room and grabbing other planes to counter the enemy or whatever.

I agree, however, in the spirit of good competition, would you rather win because you had a better plane lineup or would you rather win because you had equally good lineups, but out-skilled your opponent?

 

For me personally I would rather win by out-performing the enemy, not by having a better plane.

 

But I will do whatever people vote for.

Not everyone has that motivation. Hiding it would straight up level it off from the start preventing any B$ from happening.

Both good points! I voted to hide lineups and my reasoning is that I would like to see what each clan (or team or whatever) thinks would be their best option, and how that plays out against everyone else's idea of the 'best' combination for their players. You throw those teams together and see what emerges - we might see some cool upsets and some really unexpected results! (Of course, if we're limiting any kind of aircraft, this won't do much good...)

 

 

Cheers!

Since the poll won't let me vote, here's what I'd like to see:

map: bay

tier: 9

restrictions: limit HF

number of players per team: 4v4 or 15v15

rest: after lunch


Be sure to check your logic privileges before posting on the forum.
