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.

If there were actually tournaments in game, like lawandchaos.co.uk, and if there was a Tournament of the Gods style tournament, then yes I would be signing up to a guild and signing up to tournaments. But there isn't and that makes me :(
