Now the subject of Diablo III, we decided against making it an official tournament because there is no good way to manage it for a tournament at this time. We want to keep the tournament as fair for everyone as possible, and we came to the conclusion that it would be best to wait until PvP is introduced to be able to do the tournament correctly. We will keep it on our radar for future lans.

That being said, if someone wants to run a Diablo III unofficial tournament with the structure that was brought up in the feedback post, we will help with support if needed.

Also, all other games (LoL, HoN, COD Base Assult, etc.), if someone wants to run an exhibition unofficial tournament, please feel free to start a post about it.

I will play in the Tribes and Worms tournaments. It can't be easy to sift through the community's' suggestions, and come up with something that works for everyone. These are good pics. Thanks for all the effort you guys put forth.

In a completely unrelated matter, we'll also be referring to the event as RezLan v1.0.

Old School tourneys are always announced when actually at the lan. The point is that you do not know what it is so no one can practice ahead of time, but it something that most everyone has played.

Tribes arena... home sweet home.
But, unless they changed things, I believe you have to be level 8 to even unlock Arena mode. You may want to check and clarify this.

True but it is normally in the tourney listing as TBA. Guess it might be an over sight.

Oh now while it's on my mind, will there be a particular ruleset for the Tribes tournament custom server? As a Arena regular, I know how much some classes can mess up the fun (Technician, Infiltrator), and I personally feel assault weapons mess up the epic dueling fun.

The three default classes could work to give everyone the fair match.

It scares me how quiet it got right after I point out a flaw in a tournament game haha :P

I realize people don't always have time to check this but I encourage you to make haste at deciding what to do about it lol we may need to pick a new game to do in it's stead :)

Gotta love games in beta though.

I know there was some grumbling over LoL tourneys in the past, but it has been awhile since an official one was done, and I think the same issues will hold true no matter what MOBA is selected. Dota2 would be the only one close to balanced, but it's a game balanced around obscene power potential on everyone. All of the MOBAs are challenging and skill-intensive, and small mistakes can turn the game. I have yet to dive into SMITE but I'd bet it's far from balanced, and it will eventually have features like runes do in LoL, so frequent players will have advantages (same as Tribes).

Considering the variables in computers, latency, external (HiRez) servers, player experience, and even how long it's been since you woke up, I wouldn't be concerned with achieving supreme balance in these tournaments. Some games lend themselves well to competitive gaming, but there is only so much you can do.

tldr Don't be afraid to consider LoL or another game if the issue can't be fixed.


Edit: Also any ideas on Tribes map(s) to be used? Hinterlands is the most problematic due to some physics 'features' aka bugs that they seem to not want to fix despite being toxic to gameplay.

We picked the game last minute because everyone would be able to get a copy. Only one of the staff had time to check it out. As was pointed out in this posted after we announced it, you can't play a custom 5v5 game with people you know yet.

If this changes and we are able to play this we will be happy to slip it back in. I left room in the schedule for it just incase :).
