There are a ton of problems with the banning format, but I'm excited to hear about a tournament regardless.

If one team bans a spec does that mean it's banned for both teams?  That'd mean 6 specs could be banned altogether if you do it after each pick.

Also would really make classes with only one viable spec pretty trash.  For example banning Arms Warrior means you're going to see no Warrior at all, since they won't go prot or fury really.  Ban UH DK and they're pretty much gone as Frost doesn't really exist at high levels neither does Blood.  Etc etc.

I think like people said it's cool in games with tons and tons of heroes where a player just learns one general playstyle IE jungle, carry, support etc etc and then selects from a multitude of heroes within that play style but it's more tricky when you're in a game without so many.

I think each team banning a map makes great sense as there are very imbalanced maps, but I worry that you might just end up with a lower level of play with the tournament with people banning out specs and whatnot that players are famous for.  How many people really want to tune in to see Venruki login a BM hunter after Frost gets banned out, or to see Another on a Feral druid because UH DK got banned out etc.  You'll just end up with players who're worse on the classes and games less people care to see, but perhaps I'm wrong!

Anyway, cool idea and would love to be involved - also awesome prize pool!  Not trying to be a downer just trying to make sure everything is thought through for one of the few high profile tournaments we have these days!

Great idea for the tournament! A pretty high prize pool as well, to say the least for a player-ran tournament. xD

Wouldn't it be better if you just ban BM hunters, rets and ele shamans though? Seeing as it's mostly those classes/specs breaking the game atm.

Azael, answering to your post it's not intended to make someone play the spec that he is not experienced with, therefore there are 5 team members and it's common now that a person can play 2 or more specs at least (not talking about classess). Nonetheless, it still implies that multiclassers will have some advantage as it will enable the team to build more solid comps.


Concerning the bans, you are only banning the specs in away team team, you don't apply bans to specs available to your team.

Interesting. I like the idea of having 5 team members. Always feel like I'm having to leave players out that I want on my team with the normal format. I agree with Azael that bans will be tricky, but I think you should follow through with it because it sounds like it could be a great experience.

I really think you need to have all the bans done first , then the picks

if you use your 1 pick 1 ban idea  the first picking team is at a huge advantage

How many you can ban and how? Assuming 3, I'd ban Rshaman, disc and Rdruid, so there'd be only hpala and mw monk comps :P

Nawh, nice to see new tournament coming!

Interesting ideas! Always awesome to see more tournaments from WoW.

What server will the tournament be hosted on? I'm assuming it's RU?

this is a retarded idea. why would you ban specs? if someone bans holy paladins, what do i do? ret? play resto sham at my marvelous 2100 level? you want to see who the best team is  so you should let them play their actual comps with their main specs

I've actually made a lot of friends this season, I don't think anyone hates me or thinks i'm scum or thinks I cheat or thinks i'm toxic for the game. I'm definitely not a faggot as i've had a girlfriend for the past 3 years. I've also graduated College last year and working in my field currently so even if we come last place there it's not the end of the world, I got to meet up with friends I play with and against online and got to go to Manhattan on for a paid vactation.. And i'm a goddamn Ret paladin so there's a factor of respect given by the community for making it this far.
