Tournament idea (in Contests)

For our next tourney

Rule

1 minion only team allow.
Starting exp 100K so the -1K MPR no bonus is skip.
BA cap 500
Bonus rewards 500% so you dont have to change target every fight or so. That what make tourney too long and prevent most players from actualy winning. Most are not interest spending several hour just to get 250K.

Highest MPR win
Bonus of 50K for highest MPR opponent defeated

no starting BA?

AdminTitan July 17 2011 11:46 PM EDT

1 day tourney?

highest mpr tournaments are pretty gameable and usually end up frustrating more players than they please.

I disagree

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 18 2011 8:43 AM EDT

i was merely speaking historically. slayer did agree with me which was why after the first ten or so tournaments neither score nor mpr were the sole factors in determining winners for very many tournaments. at least until he left that is.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 18 2011 11:36 AM EDT

maybe if you found the threads you're talking about... because I went back through and even Slayer was running mpr based tourneys

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 18 2011 11:44 AM EDT

i looked at ten through 44 last night and didn't see one that was solely based on mpr as the winning factor. 1 through ten there were a few but not that many.

there were some using mpr in addition to another stat as a ratio and at least one team mpr tourney but no mpr solely that i found. i didn't actually check each one but spot checked quite a few last night to make sure i wasn't crazy.

This tournament =

1 day low NW single minion char. End of BA, buy 3 minions, gg no re.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 18 2011 11:58 AM EDT

it was actually sometime around t20 that we quit seeing the mpr tournaments. i had missed some of the teens last night.

the hiring issue was another one of the issues with highest mpr tournaments as well.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 18 2011 12:01 PM EDT

I found three tourneys two of which were Slayers after T20... this is really a one man campaign at this point dude

If mpr is too gameable then tournies are too gameable whatever the format.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] July 18 2011 12:40 PM EDT

you are the tournament admin and it is your choice to make. i was trying to help.

Kefeck [BlackSmith] July 18 2011 4:14 PM EDT

I'll admit tourney rewards have been pretty bad the last few tournies.. >.>

hmm :p you can give what for tourney you want, cause i really want one now :3

AdminNightStrike July 18 2011 7:57 PM EDT

I like the idea of 1 minion tournaments.

AdminTitan July 18 2011 8:09 PM EDT

me too, but this is done the wrong way, no offense Duke.
