Season 5 Feedback- What would YOU change about the tournament?
« on: October 06, 2013, 05:47:20 AM »
I did not participate in the first four seasons of the tournament, so this was my first.  I am really enjoying the game without P-Mode... the way it used to be.  I love the speed, I love the mines, I love that it only took a couple days to unlock Athenas.  This coupled with the quest rewards and other game changes in the last year have made the tournament alot of fun for me.

I'm a fan of tournaments for the simple reason that they have a definitive end.  I'm an even bigger fan of not having P-mode in tournaments because of P-Mode itself and because it tells me that BFG is willing to change the tournament to a format that the players want. 

I thought I'd make a post to get a more modern day feel of what the players want, and I'll start by listing what I'd like to see change for season 6.

1.  No P-Mode.  This is great, keep it this way.

2.  Galaxies-  Only 1 galaxy, or 2-3 truncated galaxies with maybe 100 systems each.  No more hiding in the corner. 

3.  No curetes.  Nuff said.

I agree with 1 & 2, and would add that I think the speed is great too.
Curetes are the whole reason Erebus have any use, and most of the reason Moros do.
It is definitely a broken ship though.

The problem with Erebus is that they are too weak, even compared to the curetes defending.

An erebus attacks for 20 damage (3 times, I know).
A curetes has 400 hull. 

To even have a CHANCE to destroy a curetes, you have to do 30% hull damage, which is 120.  An erebus firing 3 times at the same ship does half that.

Erebus don't RF against probes, sats and charons like most other ships do, and again, they don't do enough damage to kill them.   You really have to use Moros if you want to kill curetes, which is kinda lame when you compare the cost to build one Moros vs one curetes.

I like this version of the tournament.  No NPC's great.  No P mode awesome.  The speed wow. 
The only thing that I would like to see is this uni to go a little longer.

Moon, yes.  Gates, yes.  Oracles No.

In a one month tourney it takes too long to build a heph (unless you are a number 1-5 players).  Even without that, I prefer gates over a heph most of the time.

should also up the mine production for higher lvs as i am at a stage that it is pointless to upgrade mines as the ROI date is to close to tournament end date.

More people! lol. This has gotten boring. The top few players have wiped out most of the targets already. Best hit I've had all tournament was maybe 4k dsp.

AGREED 100% VAS,  I actually quit the tourney a couple days ago due to boredom..I just could not justify spending my free time playing a game that was as much fun as watching paint dry!!

I would make it like tourney 3 was with the speeds of tourney 5. There were so many more people playing tourney 3 than the past 2 tourney's. I also think that it should run 3 month.
