When will the tournament be played / start?
Which patch? This one or in 5.4?
Which server / realm (live or arena pass maybe)?
If live servers, (all gear allowed)?

Anyway, you must be happy like small children to think that you've invented something great, but in the end, all you did was reinvent hot water. Banning system in WoW doesn't work that way, and will never work in WoW ( unless by some miracle, next expansion is the next best thing after a hot knife through butter and brings back everyone to the game ).

Better way to do it, would be to actually make a survey with ~16 teams you've stated are participating, have them each list 3 comps they don't deem acceptable and balanced, and you won't be able to run those specific 3 combos in the tournament.

*edit

I meant, 3 most common mentioned combinations will be banned. So every team outta 16 mentions 3 comps they don't like, and the 3 most mentioned comps would get removed.

Your last tournament was great already and it's a good idea to revive the tournament scene again.
I really like the idea of a league system. Also the ability to have five players in one team makes it more interesting.

The banning system is a good approach as well, but I see problems in it. People will most likely ban BM hunters in the first round. Then most teams „should“ pick MM hunter. After banning a melee or disc priest the most teams we will see are:

MM hunter
resto druid/shaman/disc priest
melee

Queuing in the Blizzard ladder already told us that a only half decent team consisting of hunter, melee, healer should beat most other teams. Most teams in the tournament will pick:

hunter
disc
resto druid/shaman
melee1
melee2

And if not they probably won't achieve much...


Assuming BM hunters get banned first pick most of the time, I guarantee you that MM hunter won't win this tournament if there are "big names" (LAN players) involved. Wizards will.
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

That would give a rather large advantage to uncommon comps and force players into unfamliar comps and would once again be less of a showcase of skill. I think the bans are great but I dont think there should be multiple bans of DPS. The one healer one dps sounds the most balanced but we shall see!

They ran tournaments with this system already and it was a success. Russian tournaments just don't get enough attention on AJ, but they were actually amazing and arguably better compared to anything player-ran in the English speaking world - even LAN finals / final phase.

This is not something new or experimental, and isn't presented as such.

Instead of burning every new idea on sight.
Could you dimwits give them a chance on how they're trying to make it work.
If you have problems understanding my post, don't assume something and hit the reply button but read it again.

I like the idea of the banning system, think some really fun matches can come out from it!

What I want to ask is if you are accepting donations? Last tournament you didn't since the prize money was already there and you weren't making the tournament to earn money. Have you considered accepting donations to raise money to a bigger prize pool for the next tournament, as I know some internet tournaments in sc2 are?

We might consider the donation system for the next tournament (next season), however the donations have to be well tracked. We've contacted blizzard employees and it turns out that we have to share any profit we make with them. This tournament is not profit-oriented and  any donations could possibly cause misunderstanding, which we don't want.

there are 5 players in each team, why do u think theya can't play a good comp?

u have to think about ur mates when making a team and what they are able to play and then there are a few good comps which u can run.

if a player thinks he's only good enough at one spec and this spec is banned, he just get replaced with another team member.

i'm pretty sure there are a lot of sick match ups if there are enough good participants
