We were thinking a lot about the rules, format and gear. How to make arenas balanced?
As always genious decision is the most simple. Let the players choose setups themselfs, like they do it in Leagues of Legends or DotA. They will be able to ban imbalanced specs, counterpick enemy team using intellect and not wine about the setups anymore. Dont wanna face BM hunters? Ban them. Restor shamans are OP against wizards? Ban them too. But keep in mind that enemy team will also break your supercomp and will make it weaker.
Each team that is participating in Arena's League can consist of 3-5 members. They can play any classes and speccs. Before each game captains of both teams log in to special interface, where they can do picks and bans. The interface was created by Prestige-Gaming programmers and the process of bans in picks will be executed via prestige-gaming.ru web page, thus the captain of each team should be registerd on prestige-gaming.
Bonuses from tournament format:
Teams can ban unbalanced specializations.
Mind-game between teams during the picks.
We will see great variety of different and sometimes exotic comps.
Players that can play different speccs or even classes would be very useful.
If any team played over 9000 in one fotm setup you can easily ban it and force them to play something different.
For those who don't speak Russian it would be hard to register a team directly on the web page on their own thus the team captain should contact me (Svetozarov) via skype jam_ftw. Be prepared to explain why you deserve to be in the tournament. The registration is extended untill June 26th.
