5/6 player competitions

Post by SpiteAndMalice » Sat Sep 02, 2017 8:09 am

So how about a competition for the 5 and 6 player versions of the game?

They could easily be added to league options.

But as these matches often taken longer I think the 1 month timeframe could be an issue.

I'd rather see a new competition that works a bit more like Duels in that players get an instant score/ranking after completing games. And that runs into the longer term, 3 months, 6 months, a year maybe.

As an example points could be awarded:
1st place 6 points
2nd place 3 points
3rd place 1 point
4th place -1 point
5th place -2 points
6th place -3 points

And for 5 player
1st place 5 points
2nd place 2 points
3rd place 0 point
4th place -1 point
5th place -3 points


I know that there's a more balanced way to give the points between modes, but I haven't drunk coffee yet...

There are rumors of custom tourneys coming our way. If so, might be a fair and easier ask to pursue in that context.

I wonder then whether you wouldn't need a league or duel options for 2, 3, or 4 player games if custom tournaments will serve that need.

Bump - No sign of a custom tournament for 5/6 players - Please could these formats have their own in game competition?
