  • What would people think to the idea of relaunching this as an ingame tournament?

    The scope could potentially be expanded to 5/6 player games, where we currently have no official competitions.

    I'd also propose a long term time scale, for me it'd be interesting to see these types of rankings evolve over a year, and the continue in a rolling format. (So always showing the previous 12 month's worth of results). Again, we have nothing that does this.

    @Rafi - Would something like this be feasible now that we have guilds?

  • Once the impending hotfix is out of the way, let me have a look at what statistics I can track via server queries.
    I may be able to automate stuff like this without really changing anything.

  • Cool, that's great to know.

    Please let me know if you'd like to talk about ways to design and present the potential tournament when you do.

  • Before doing any work on this I would personally recommend that Demigods and Gods are contacted to see how many would be interested, especially if it potentially involves input from them over a timescale of a year. There are many areas in Chaos Reborn that require development and spending the understandably currently limited resources on a tournament that has already failed may not be the best in my humble opinion.

  • yeah, i'm always interested as well. don't know how you framed this tournament last time, but would be awesome, if possible, for the timing to be a little more accessible across time zones, like a weekend or something...cause the Spite nights always fall Thursday at lunch time in PST :)

    It wasn't a one off time/date, instead it ran in a way that allowed players to play against each other at any point in time. It was more of a league ladder than a cup, rankings were updated as match results came in.

    For the first month it ran really well and was popular. I think the mistake that we made was to reset the rankings after a month and ask players to start again choosing a new team/god. I can't remember the numbers off the top of my head, but it was a healthy number of games played before the reset, and only 4 played after it... That's why I'm proposing the longer time scale.
