6 way tournaments

Post by SpiteAndMalice » Mon Mar 28, 2016 5:54 am

So I'm just wondering here what the interest is in getting a couple of tournaments going based on the incoming 6 way format of the game.

One idea I had was that we play with an old school Gran Prix style scoring system.

1st place 10 points
2nd place 6 points
3rd place 4 points
4th place 3 points
5th place 2 points
6th place 1 point

But what else can we do, are people interested in a 3v3 competition? How about a 2v2v2?

I'm in. I don't do teamwork though, so would much prefer free for all. :)

Instead of always being Last Man Standing rules it could be cool to get a point for each wizard kill made in a match. I don't know if Snapshot could implement this stat on post-game splash screen. I did request this before but no response.

CR could do with some variation with the PVP. As it stands it is always LMS rules.

Yep, 6FFA/3v3/2v2v2, all good new formats, if it's possible to combine them all in one tourney, great!... 6 player maps will probably make my pc lag bad, but cant pass on the prospect of 6 player matches.

Something like this exists now in League matches in the event of a draw.

It could be the Grand Prix standings (curious, I also know that system by heart, and I don't even know the system they currently use in F1) + 2 points per wizard killed.

So for example, if wizard A kills four wizards but then is defeated by wizard B, wizard A would get 6+4*2=14 and wizard B would get 10+1*2=12. While each of the others would get 4, 3, 2, 1 depending on how much they endured.

Sounds more or less balanced to me between recognizing that survival has merit, but still encouraging people to engage other wizards.

In a draw, rather than get 0 stars, each player gets 1 star for each wizard they defeated in the match. Thus, in a 4FFA draw, a player who defeated 2 wizards but not the last gets 2 stars. This is consequential only in 3FFA and 4FFA formats.

Though even if you get positive stars with a League draw, they don't count as "wins" for purposes of a winning streak bonus.
