So after participating in the MWO 1st Engagement I want more!

So here is my suggestion:
  • We open up a casual tournament to the public that will take place in June or July.
  • rules will be 4v4 or 8v8 and we will set specific tonnage limits to each bracket.
  • Teams will be placed against each other at random.
  • Map will be decided ahead of time.
  • no arty/air strikes
  • all matches will take place on the weekend if you want it streamed. (I will just hop in and put a spider on a mountain to watch the game) Else you just need to send me your end game screen cap.
  • games will be 15 minutes.
  • Spawn locations will be decided ahead of time at random.

Thoughts?

Before July 12th would be nice, cause that's the day I leave America to go to South America. Also June 19th is week of my finals .
The weekend seems PERFECT for me. And the no arty and air strikes? Oh you got me sold!

So I think it will be a 4v4, but here's how I would organize it:
  • Maybe split it into 2 leagues (Casual/Pro) League players are simply encouraged to play in pro league.
  • For streaming, I see only 2 ways to do it. 1)die and use spectator mode. 2) take a few lights and scatter them around the map to shut down, then I die and spectate through them, but I can see that causing some issues.
  • I will start a separate forum for people to easily register to and communicate with each other.
  • To advance, the losing team will simply have to report a loss and the automated bracket system will adjust accordingly.
  • To make things interesting, the last couple brackets (Not the final) will have to use crazy builds like ac40 ravens or something. we will give them a selection of mechs to use.
  • To register, you must have a roster of possible team members (between 4-8). These players can be switched out at any time. Any one player can not be on more than 1 roster.

For spectating/streaming, You guys are already on PGI's radar, if this builds steam, maybe they'll step in with the spectate mode.

That would incentivise me more. Getting a legit tourney sytem forum would cost me a bit but that would make it worth it. It could help get us more recruits.

While I like the idea of crazy builds, I would make them a seperate thing, not part of an otherwise regular tournament.

I like the idea of 8v8. Less chance of getting lost or hiding on the map.

For streaming I could actually just die and spectate one side. Another streamer could spectate the other side, then I would capture his stream as an overlay. His would be way behind but it could be a good compromise.

I also like the idea using crazy builds, but make it a separate tourny. That way those who get their jimmies rustled over the idea of insanity can avoid it while those who embrace our insanity can fully enjoy it.

Let's do a casual everybuild 8v8, and then a pro metabuild/everybuild 4v4 tourney, then a casual crazy build 4v4 tourney. Not in that order.

Crazy build gives me an excuse to bring back my ER PPC Jenner!

Things to consider
Which will draw a larger audience? 8v8 4v4?
4v4 is a bit easier to manage since you have less schedules per team to worry about.
The more complex the tourney, the more refs/managers I'm going to need.
We need to find a way to make this fun for everyone, where meta teams wont dominate. That's why my vote is 4v4 because it's more likely that you have at least 3 friends.

That's just my opinion.

On the other hand. 8v8 could turn into some interesting battles. So, I'm open to both arguments.

The crazy build tourney is still something I want to do. But I think i agree it should be separate.

I'm open for anything as long as it means more MWO and more booze. I'll try to help as much as I can if needed. Even thinking about seeing if I can get streaming to work on my computer(s).

Odds are I will need 6 Moderators/refs, 6 Commentators, 4 Streamers More or less depending on time slots. None of those will be at the same time and one person can fill multiple positions. We will see though.

I'm leaning towards 4v4 casual tourney with no more than 64 teams.

Looks like right now, 4v4 is the top choice.

If I can get the streaming to work, I'd be willing to do that. But if not, I'll be willing to do any of the other roles.
