Duel mode on-the-go Tournaments
I apologize if this has been suggested already, I do not read the forums that much.
Develop a Tournament Duel Mode, in which a play-off tree is created once all the players join. Winners keep advancing brackets, losers can choose to:
b) join a loser’s pool that would work like the current duel pool
c) See Double Elimination below.
The ideal number of players would be 4, 8, 16 and 32, but if there are odd numbers, it could still work. Some people would just have to fight a pre-round. Bracket solutions can be found here http://www.printyourbrackets.com/ (I don’t relate to this webpage, it’s just the first resource I found on Google).
Double elimination mode:
Losers at the main bracket go to loser’s bracket and can still get to the final. It would be interesting as well so that players that have a rough match-up in first round are not eliminated straight away (i.e. the 2 best players meet in round 1).
New players that join the server once the tournament has started would either spectate or join the loser’s pool.
This mode could also be played in 2v2 duels (as suggested here http://www.chivalrythegame.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=9712&hilit=duel).
If this was implemented it could prove to be an effective way of promoting the competitive aspect of the game because it would be very easy to schedule tournaments in different gaming communities.
That was all, I tried to keep it short and simple. Thanks for reading.
