I'm going to wait a few more days to see if I get any more responses and then start sending out IGMs asking which of the tournament types they want- king of the kill, capture the flag etc.

Once I have a clear idea what sort of tournament people want, I'll work out dates and costs then make a new thread for it.


I like the idea War of Walls (r). I read on Illy Warmonger about it.
Basically- your task is to eliminate opposition walls, and you are not allowed to use catas for building destruction.

But I am not sure about logistics for this tournament or any military. In Illy you can’t successfully fight over long distances. If you are a small alliance, I mean. There had been apparently some successful operations by seasoned military alliances.

So, it would have to be regional..

*facepalm* I totally forgot to add that one to the list. Thanks for catching that. 

I agree, alliances would probably end up competing mostly in their own area but that's fine because of the number of alliances involved.

Capture the flag sounds like a great idea.

I would vote Capture the Flag as well.

Is everyone aware that small aliance means small regional area of town placement? Even if every small alliance is willing to participate there is a very big chance some are so isolated they can't reach a flag or hill within  a month. Or do you wish a flag or hill for each region? In that case most regions only have 1 or 2 small aliances with a big chance 1 is stronger then the other and there's no fun in battling eachother. 
I really do hope you can make an interesting tournament for small alliances, but I doubt it will be as much fun as a tournament for everyone. I believe the tournament with the undead had different leagues. Maybe a server wide tournament with a division for small, medium and large alliance could be an option?

That sounds good to me but it may well increase the admin overhead a fair bit...

That is why I am more in favor of a growth or discovery tournament but I still like the idea of have a military aspect in the tournament. It is true that some small alliances would stand less of a chance in military. However they would gain military experience, so even if they don't win they will benefit.

The idea behind the capture the flag style tournament would be for alliances to put into teams with other alliances and work together. This should increase the geographical spread of each side, prevent smaller alliances from just being wiped out by larger alliances in the tourney, and not present too much of an overhead beyond the initial setting up and balancing of teams. 

I'd probably do something similar with a war of walls style situation. 

I'd arrange for each team to have around 5 flags... and probably do 2-4 teams depending on the number of alliances involved and their size.

I appreciate your efforts Eowan and you can count us in if you really manage to set up something, but I'm a little sceptic on how it will turn out. I hope you can prove me wrong.

IGMs to decide the type of tournament that this will start with are going out now. 

If you are the leader of a small alliance and have not been IGMed about it but would like to be involved, please IGM Eowan The Carrot for the full list of options.
