[FIRST IDEAS] 1st International Battle Tournament

Hello Guys,

me and Sado have an idea to make the 1st international Battle Game Tournament in the KaM Remake.

I wanted to ask first YOU, the Community what ideas you have and if you think, you would participate at such a tournament.


Here are some briefly things, what I thought about:

*2vs2 Tournament(Most maps can be played in that style)
*Players with no team will "find" a teammate later on
*Nearly all good balanced standard battle maps + Special maps like that from Shadaoe e.g.
*"Dota Tournament Style": Team who wins 2/3 matches, win the complete "game"
*Winner and looser bracket (Looser still have a chance when they only did bad in 2 games)
*Small time for playing your games, like 4 games maybe(Unless you don´t need that much time for a battle game, like for an economy game {and even there some teams finished their group stage in Zoltans+Mercenary´s tournament in like one week :D}



So feel free just to post what you think about it and if you wanna join that tournament maybe....


Sado + Paweł
You aren´t a good player if you have a good PT-Army. You should be able to use it correctly!

Nice idea, but about system - you can use dota international system, its more interesting, but it can be too long

Re: [FIRST IDEAS] 1st International Battle Tournament

We don't want to interrupt your tournament, indeed. On the other hand, a fight only tournament doesn't need as much time from the players, so maybe it wouldn't be a problem to be participating in both? (Actually, I won't be able to find enough time for a building tournament, that's why I want a fight one to happen) Also, I think to make a good tournament we need some time to prepare it, discuss about maps etc., and it will take a bit of time :)

I'm thinking about group stage+cup stage (like last 3v3 tournament), since it's only 1 game more to pick a group winner (maybe only first place would advance, though) and it means everyone can play at least 3 games. And map picking would probably look like:
-each team picks a map for 1 game, and if third game is needed, the teams eliminate maps in turns so there's only one left
or
-teams eliminate maps from the start, so there are 2 left, if third game is needed, teams play on the last map eliminated

Which maps would you guys want to see in 2v2 tournament? I've got a quite controversial idea - I'm thinking about modifying a few maps for tournament's needs (so some sort of a mappack would be released) - there are quite some fighting maps that won't work that well for 2v2, but it'd be a shame not to include them.
No modifications needed:
-Cross
-Enter the Heat (top vs bottom)
-Gorges - location near the bridge, and any of 2 other locations will be used
-Pirate Bond - I like the map but I can see many people not liking its campiness. 12 vs 34, or 34 vs 56?
-Snow Cross
-Unknown Danger
-The Raven's Field
Modified maps:
-Coastal Encounter - originally 1v1v1, but with a little smaller armies it could be fun 2v2
-Shoulder to Shoulder - either without modifications - infantry and archers (without horses), or modify the map so the archer player has (some/all?) horses as well
-Battle of Octumn - not sure. Love the idea and the script, it'd match what I want to see in the tournament, but the map might be too big for 2v2. Any solutions anyone can think of?
-The Conquest - I can make 2v2 version if needed, but I'm quite sure it doesn't fit the other maps, since it's much more complicated than fighting.

Additional idea: I could apply the fog of war script to one of the maps, but I'm not sure if that wouldn't just be unnecessary.

Re: [FIRST IDEAS] 1st International Battle Tournament

Well we indeed wanted to start later on vovets. However not "that" late, we wanted to start at the end of the holidays :D
But don´t worry, its a "only battle" tournament, so it isnt just a copy of yours :mrgreen:

I agree with all of that maps except for "Coastel encounter". It´s a really often played map in KaM and it won´t fit 2vs2 perfectly, i think. You have 3 entrances that all connect in the middle of the map, so there is no way (really) to place 2 players in one of the "lines" you havent even place for 4 players in the center, i would say.

Finally! I waited for the moment when we will have a tournament only for tactical map :D .
I and Luki a lot of time tested "Pirate Bond" and in my opinion loc 12 v 34 will be better. Loc 1, 2 for a perfect balance need more units. On days I'll post a link.

Re: [FIRST IDEAS] 1st International Battle Tournament

If I may say a few words; I think everything should be kept as simple as possible. (A large number of) map updates should be avoided.
