From the same guys who brought you the ToC2.0 Community Run Tourney (all VoDs viewable at https://www.youtube....6wk1fPVVZz868QQ ), comes an invitational tournament with a double elimination, 8 team format, set to be played out on March 28th, 2015 at 5:00 M Pacific!
Why Should You Watch This?
Pro-Tournament Level Players
A prize of $390 to the 1st place winner + potential donation prizes!
Competitive Seeding and removal of Counter Comps in the first round
(bracket will be posted when team names are finalized this coming week)
To maintain the highest possible level of competition, we have assigned rating based seeds for every team, then moved some of those teams around to avoid counter comps from being played. This is to make sure our viewers have an enjoyable tournament to watch, and to let our competitors feel like they walked into the tourney with a fighting chance, thanks to this and a double elimination format we look forward to every team having a bracket that gives them the best possible chance to move forward.
1st place - $390 + Donations
2nd place - bragging rights over 3rd and a 100% invitation to our next invitational.
Help us make this bigger, and the prizes will continue to be better, with more being brought down to the 2nd and 3rd place prizes!

Other specs cant use tranq at all now, and because BM has the most free focus it will still be able to utilize purge better than the other specs. The thing is tranq right now will sacrifice a lot of your damage as Marksman, and a good bit as survival. It's a choice for those specs because you'll lose a lot of damage and pressure. However that's not the case for BM, it has tons of excess focus because outside of crows and barrage, arcane and kill command aren't going to actually cause real damage, which lets you just spam purges without actually losing your pressure. And on top of that, bw cutting focus costs by 50% lets you spam even more during that time, which is why druids can get slaughtered by crows and just spam tranq since they cant even heal through 20k ticks of crows.The nerf will still lett you tranq a decent amount during bestial wrath anyways, since the focus cost will be 25. Imo the right change should have been maybe 30 focus tranq shot for BM only and making BW not effect tranq shots focus cost, along with nerfing crows scaling off of BMs mastery in PvP and focus fires attack power increase in pvp, as well as a barrage pvp only nerf.
Those changes would have fixed BM, plus made it so that you can play the other specs (survival and Marks are technically in okay spots, but because BM hunters outshine them so much, and BM hunters are fotm, you can't actually beat BM hunters if you don't play BM as well. This change just makes it even worse for the other specs, because currently BM has the best and easiest damage to set up over all the other specs. I like that they are making changes, just think that more intelligent changes could have been made.
