hi again we dint win (

Since we will see allot of action and everyones tempers will be up as hearts are crushed in this years tourney a small little place for us to point out the main things to focus on and any ideas for 2012.

1. eve tv for all fights .......
2. a new rule to advance game play (this years was shot down)
3. 5 man qualifier ?
4.. Jamming like never before , should we look at jamming hi slots mids lows instead of lock as example to spice it up/?
5, How to stop the final being so lame ( steel garmons mums bras ect ect before fight and put them on our heads like Robert Downey Jy in wierd Science)?











i will do my best to update thread,

rule 2 , a second stab at a sugestion

I asked if we could have one faction mod on each ship, the big issue is cost,

so I suggest the community put the whining into action, and we ask CCP for us to donate isk,
they buy off the market x amount of mods for next years tourney (officer faction that would be useful for pvp eg faction reps, webs)
each module is given a value ,
then each team picks mods with limit on how much isk in total .(and maybe only one of each eg not 7 faction webs so the community has to buy x amount of teams x 7 webs just incase).

Then in each fight one ship unknown to the enemy (unless they bring a scanner / or spy well), has a surprise faction mod... this way we all show how much we enjoy and respect the fun of the tourney and we will see ships that would never before use faction mods do so,,, its not like ur going to make a triston the flag ship is it....

rule 1 more eve tv,

personally im a free man now, so as well has having a games company starting I will be able to make a separate building dedicated to this cause even if its just me editing clips for u ( though I do make my own movies for money ect). I just need you to send me a mail / contact.in game (CCP) ..........as for in game I don't want to loose swin so please have a think about my dilemma esp as its the first time 0utbreak enters and Im about as un caring if we win or not... just pointless if they return with-ought a frozen corpse of an enemy,,,,,, nom nom nom smarties only please

lol

ccp decided that doing less work, providing less content makes for a better experience. you wont talk them out of this, that would be admitting it was stupid not to broadcast them

CCP can't afford to stream all the matches (Everybody runs on a budget)... This is why CCP are now introducing Eve content which HAS to come from real money - or maybe they waste it on beer and Dust* instead.

* Nice touch not to have Dust on a pc platform. Way to say thank you Eve players...

Im sorta in favor of making it so that each pilot in the 10 man team can only register 3 ships for the whole tourny.

If one of their ships gets blown in a previous round he's left with the other 2.


Would really force some good strategy's on ship selection since you most likely wouldnt want the same pilot in a frig for every match and having him gone before the finals.

That's an awful idea, would encourage setups where you lose nothing / turtle.

Explosions are where it's at, the more glass cannons the better.

Your correct about glass cannons being more entertaining, but we see T3 swarm anyway from the winning teams already.

Also, it wouldnt be in effect for the pre-qualifying rounds.

3 ships for 4 rounds isnt too rough.

why not just start at something simple like...

any alliance who wants to pay the 2bil entry fee gets a shot at the qualifying matches.

hard to find anyone to argue against this particular change, whereas the rest will find people on both sides of the fence.

I aggree with that man, but the problem was CCP didnt have enough time to handle all the late entree's.


Honestly, if you have 4 people working on organizing the tourny it should only take 2 weeks to organize the match's. Thats 320 man hours without any overtime.

I would still limit it to like 120 entry's or so because then its like a grindfest for the judge's and they are more likely to make a mistake.

which is why its so confusing why they made the qualifying matches so ridiculously complicated.

if the complaint from ccp is "its too much work for our volunteers"...make it simple!

save all your convoluted nonsense for the final rounds you broadcast.

OK so they increase teams to 128 next year, AND do 7 weeks of full coverage with a full set * as i the commentators booth and after match talk*, HD feed of course at least uploaded to youtube afterwards.

Yeah ccp stop ebign lay! doing all that is super easy, and free!

How about CCP doesn't mess up Sisi? I'd rather they stop failing on the test server than provide video streams or commentary of the 5v5s.

+1 should of keep expansion on duality. Or kept duality up for just AT9 testing.

7 weeks isnt necessary...

no need for this double elimination points system nonsense in the qualifiers..win and you move on...lose and your out. cut the 5v5 match time down from 10min to 7 or 8...and viola...more participation, less work for "volunteers", more good teams in the meaningful matches at the end...and everyone wins.

surely someone will come along and complain about this too even if it were implemented, but such is life. I see no real valid argument against "you lost your match in the tournament, good luck next year".

save the double swiss super absurd chess match system for the matches that matter and that people actually watch.
