I think 2 months is the sweet spot. T4 lasted 3, and people were joining right up to the last week. But most players were getting itchy for the end by the third month from what I saw in-game. Noone was itchy for T5 to end that I know of. Anyone who was probably was due to lack of targets more than anything.

P mode may be a necessary evil for income, but maybe you should make them cost more in tournaments. Double or triple the price. Those who have the income to afford perpetual p will still get it. Those who can't still won't.

Perhaps 7x speed is too much for fleet movements, but I think it was perfect for construction. There's only so much time to work with, so faster construction and faster mines means everyone can do more.

I'd leave moons and oracles out. They take too much luck and too much time to set up, and take out too many players after the top hunters get them. They're fine in long term unis where you can rebuild no matter what you lose, when everyone can have them. Not in short unis though.

Might the ideal length depend on the speed, though?

Possibly. Though a month is a month, no matter how fast everything happens in that month. I'm not sure the speed of the uni has much bearing on the duration. The duration goal is to be long enough for people to break out of n and kill things without being so long as to get boring. I don't know that 2 months is long enough to get boring.

I myself would love to see the tourny be more than a month, have 5 unis instead of 3 smaller systems maybe 15 planets in each, a chance to buy P markers (but only once) maybe even give everyone 1 marker for 8 hours if you cant buy them or slow the game down to 5X speed. it would allow most of the people who dont have an I phone  a chance to get some rest. considering some have jobs .
 another thing is no alliances. if it is going to be cut throat why have buddies and alliances? why make a number 1 position if you are going to buddy with someone and still compete against them?

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

you have to mix them up with other fodder

personally, I would like to see the tournament as a play ground to try out new ships and game mechanics with a fixed start and end date and a 3 month duration.

Pay to play tournament. 25$ per player as a buy in, runs for 60 days, and no in game purchases other then Merchants.
no P, V, or D mode.

PvP Uni- No Npcs.

Same travel speed as T4, with the same mine and build speeds as E2
And all existing ships made available.

No moon, no Terrys.
 yeah?

If there's a cash buy in I'd need a cash reward to be interested. At least the chance to make my $ back.

no reward in other uni's, other then bragging rights, yet some people spend hundreds on them :P
i suggest a series of tournaments, each as described, and maybe the top 3 from each season get free admittance to the next season or something

I'm just not one who lives for the starting from scratch bit, so my views are biased as a result. *shrug*

I also think Genesis/Shadow/Androids should be purchasable. They provide a slight edge at a reasonable and not game-breaking cost, which allows BFG to make more $.

 a cash entry fee would not be feasible for the simple reason that it would rule out players who don't spend and would limit the amount of those willing to spend more. The idea is disastrously illconsidered.

Pay to play tournament. 25$ per player as a buy in, runs for 60 days, and no in game purchases other

at $25 per entry, you would be lucky to get 500 players. $25x500 = $12,500

that amount total is probably less than the top 10 players would spend combined on opening credits and that is if you even get 500 players to pay that amount.
