Hello everybody!

The Holidays are over and because this community is still alive (unbelievable!) I would like to help it some way. Most of you could already see thread about TLS3, which is great step to keep this game on the scene! Me and my friend @hitzoR have decided to organize a few cups/nightcups/tournaments and I would like to know your opinions.

We were thinking about a few possibilities for cups, so please let us know in comments, what do you prefer, or what would you like to see here or if you are interested in any tournament at all

What we were thinking about:
  • At first we are deciding between FREE or PAY2PLAY Cups. So I would like to know your opinion, what do you prefer.
    1. In case of FREE Cup, there will be no entry fee and you can play for prestige/honor, maximally we are able to provide some COD2 German 12 slot server for the 1st place.
    2. In case of PAY2PLAY Cup, there will be entry fee (lets say 10 EUR / team) and all of the money will go into prizepot and transfer fees
  • Then we don't know, what would be better - several ONE DAY Cups or a LONG-TERM Cups, which will take a few weeks.
  • At third we have here some ideas about cup formats:
    1. Classic Single/Double Eliminaton
    2. Groupstage + play-off
    3. New ARENA format (as known from CS:GO Tournaments)


We would like all cups to be played on our servers, where we are trying to fix pings, install ServerBOT for live information from the server and so on. We would also like to see some 'NOT SO PLAYED' maps in these cups, such as Vallente, maybe Outpost if interested and so on...


We would be very gratefull for any kind of ideas, comments, suggestions etc.

[SPOILER=SPOILER: Click to vote!]You can vote for the possibilities below:

PAY2PLAY or FREE

ONE DAY or LONG-TERM

Kind regards,
Network & hitzoR

Do one night cups or weekend cups in lan format. Long-term ones are always a drag and a frustration.

We'll have some P2P cup this fall definitely. Part of admin crew is still on vacation / summer mode, waiting for them to discuss and plan the stuff together.

Do one night cups as d3do said. The community loses interest in long-term cups too quickly and they take ages to complete. (BRATISLAVA challenge still going lol)

Just don't spam a cup out every week or the community will lose interest and the cups will lose their prestige / importance. A monthly one-night cup for 32 teams would be ideal.

Good luck

This.
And if (hopefully) there's one very soon it will help to increase the activity since summer is soon to be over.

Well, ONE DAY Cups will obviously take a lead. Now is the question, if there will be any interest in FREE Cups with no prizes (or maximally COD2 Server for 1st place atm) or you would better like to have PAY2PLAY Cups.

Was already thinking about it, but not sure if there will be enough teams. Probably would need some prizes to force teams to join
