First Ankama intervention

Hello Tul and Bari,

Thank you for hosting, just a few questions before me and Owlie discuss how we can support your tournament:

1. It is a 3v3 tournament?
2. The format is single elimination, best of 3?
3. The max number of teams is 8?
4. Any level requirement to join?
5. You are allowing class duplicates in a team?
6. What are your prizes? ;p
 
You can send me an Ankabox or Discord PM for your reply, thanks again!

how does that point system work. is it calculated based on the classes that are easiest to kill to classes that are hardest to kill? is it based on classes that do the most damage to classes that do the least? I'm assuming its the 1st but if that's the case I would move Huppermage from its slot for the reason for low QB tank Huppers do amazingly well life stealing and tanking damage using solar strong hold. That just my opinion

Hey Solemace. The point system is based on each classes ability to protect not only themselves, but also their allies. Solar Stronghold is a potent way of protecting yourself, but in a group PvP setting, it is very easily removed. Life stealing is considered on the low end of self-protection, since it requires that you deal a lot of damage first for it to actually have a strong influence on the fight.

So if nobody dies on either team, the one with the team comp that has the most points will win one of three. If the other team doesn't have subs that can put them over in points, A team could win the whole match by having the right stalls and heals to just win with their initial team comp. 

This points system seems to clash with a 30 min timer, or a timer at all. Why not make a tie force the teams to add subs to make a different fight for the tie breaker, or have some rules on stalling/infinite heals. Or hell just some class bans. Are the points balanced enough to prevent the situation above?

The point system is designed to disadvantage players for attempting to build a stalling team. If a team capable of mass healing, tanking, and running is picked for that exact purpose, they will likely lose out to the other team unless the other team is attempting the exact same strategy. Keep in mind that by building a stall team you are putting yourself at a disadvantage because of the point system. Players are incentivized to go for a player killing strategy, especially considering they will win if the time limit is reached after taking the player lead.

That being said, most matches will not even reach 30 minutes and I'm expecting a lot of them to end within 15.

Flatops dude some of anwsers are in main text tongue

1. Yea ist 3v3 but teams can have max 5 players as reserve
2. "Match Win Conditions: Best of 3"
3. Yea 8 teams, they have even a 8slot list below
4. Good question there is not a single word about that, but looking at taking part players I would guess that they hit for max lvl pvp content

Teams will do buffing, healing, summoning and positioning which is all part of a tactical turn based game. That doesn't make for good sport tho, the crowd wants to see action. So why not reward it? 

I would think teams could score points in a fight by taking actions to reduce hp of enemies. Like boxing...which fighter with most punches thrown vs landed etc. just watch and judge the fights, which ever team is the aggressor and does the most damage scores the points. "He who dares wins" smile Let the games begin!

I watched stream was really exciting. Matches was really good. Sadly the HP bar bug in spectator mode was kinda problematic for me and trolled me a few times. Also a lil anoying is shop button covering turn counter xD But these are game problems, tournament was great!
