I have been considering this for a while. I look at the tourneys, and i see a relatively good job. But, what can we do better? Combine that with my lust to get this game competitive, and have a true esports coverage of games, i have come up with this idea;
Lets hold a tournament.
This will be entirely player run, organised and (possibly) funded. We will decided the maps, the game modes, the streaming, everything. And i would love for you to be in it! Whether its a big corp reading this (*looks at WPK, NASA, ESB, TUF, etc*) or an indie player, I want you to help make this great. I know many of you have been considering this, and SM have held exhibition matches before, so i feel this is a natural step forward.
There may or may not be prizes.
The game modes may be randomised.
There will be no tier restrictions, but we will come up with a system.
Whatever you guys thought could have been done better, lets do it. And maybe Gaijin will take a look at us and see what we do (Hey guys!). I have plans already set up and cross examined, but i need help.
So, please, if you are interested, post below. I’d love to get the big corps behind this. I think we can do this really, really well, completely democratically and setting a fine example.
Lets get the community wanting more. Lets make people care about watching our streams and making squads. Together, as a player base, we are unstoppable. As pilots, you lads/lassies are the ones people talk about in fear and awe. So, lets show them why.
