Given the time constraints Pun has outlined above, please suggest an alternative that is reasonable to the majority of attending players.

We're not playing Warlords. It might be a good game format, but some have never played it.


Who hasn't played it? It's LOR with a set number of deacs, last person alive wins. I think most have played LOR and eliminator.

A least a quarter of the people going havent played it.

I would say only 8 people going have probably ever played it. lol.

I was just asking for thoughts, none of what is posted here will probably have any bearing on what is done, but it's always good to get feedback.

Solos, doubles, and triples in one tournament? :roll:

There has to be some other event we could do...


So what would you do in a 3 hpur window instead od doubles then?thought?


I'd personally rather use the time allotted for all 3 and do one larger team event. I'd have to think about what team event that would be though. I am just not a huge fan of trying to rush in an event just to rush one in. I'd be happy with even more team comp or team elim games and scrapping one of the aforementioned shorter events.

I'm definitely not a fan of LOR, but I rather do doubles LOR and either solos or triples than all three, just to give some variety.

Are we really talking about not having any LOR? We need some kind of LOR, what happened to DLOR? If we don't enough time for regular LOR then DLOR is fine. But replacing DLOR with doubles arena is not an option I would like. I don't know about others but LOR is the second most important event to me. I rather play a little less team games then just get rid of LOR all together, especially since thats not what I paid for. I paid for team, trips, DLOR, elim and solo; you can't just get rid of events after people have paid. I'm pretty sure most people would be fine(at least my team) with cutting some team/elim/trips games down to make time for LOR/DLOR. We have 6 days and only 12 teams, I don't see why there is such a time constraint. Pete runs 3 events in 2 days with more people every year.

I'm fine with harsh cuts for LOR/Solos/Trips if there's not enough time, show up and win. Playing solos, doubles, and trips is a waste of time and money. Put up a poll, I'm sure most people want to play LOR.

Not having a dig - but if you put up a poll, there are 6 US teams thus we'll simply play whatever the US teams want.

While I'll admit I expected to play LOR (not DLOR), I don't want to cut the Team Comp! Pun has already stated that Doubles (which if it has no bases is not going to be the way Australia plays currently) and Trippples (which sounds like it will end up being a hybrid of different ways of playing Trippples - which is good) takes a combined 6 hours or so (if I remember correctly).

How long is the Team Elim comp going to take?
How long does Warlords typically take?

The Team Elim comp is the only one I figure perhaps could be cut back a little bit to fit in a Team LOR comp (e.g. Warlords) as posted above. Using the scheduling information Pun has provided, I don't believe there is a way to fit in a 8hr LOR comp.

Would reducing the Team Elim comp and putting in Warlords make you feel better?

Pun - Are you able to post a DRAFT schedule so we can all understand the time constraints you're under?

Speaking on behalf of the Australians going (im not, but I know most of them fairly well) I know that their number 1 priority is the team event. The more team games the better.

Second to that you would find that there is either doubles or LoR as the second most wanted event. Triples would be behind that, then solos.

Worlds in 09 got us into LOR, having Worlds without it this time around would be a stupid move.
