limited rank wars, 2019
« on: June 08, 2019, 03:00:33 AM »
We just finished a tournament, where there were two types of wins.

Decisive hits.  One hit, a clear win.

The second was hitting small ranked players, accumulating small bits of ship and plunder points.

Enevitably, it was high ranked players, hitting those about 800 to 1,000 in rank level. Our memers were discouraged  by the immence difference in rank levels, between attackers, and those attacked.  They had no possiblility of being able to retaliate.  They needed targets of equal standing.

What I am looking for, is to see if there is interest in a war ONLY between those ranked either side of 1,000.  A short war, with a low point count. Senior players not to participate, including not group attacking, nor group defending. I am thinkin the first round would be about 100 layer, either side of 1,000.

This would give a chance for members to participate in attacks, rather than just try to not be a victim.

That's a good thought, that's usually why we do JV tournaments and put rank caps in place. Try asking smaller alliances like Dune or even Legacy to participate

Would it be possible to have a two tier tournament with the high ranking players going at it.  And a second tier with 1000 and less going at it. To win both groups must win in there tiers to declare victory?  Higher players could not attack lower players unless attacked.
No Borg ever won a war dying for the collective. Only decimating, or assimilating the other poor species.
Assimilated from Gen. Patton's speech.

Agreed.  It could be tiered.

However, it would be clear cut, to have a defined bracket to fight, with no one else involved.  No group defends from anyone outside of that bracket, or alliance.

I think that those who could not participate, would want to be in on the action.

Finding alliances who are equally matched both for ranks and numbers of players is difficult, especially if there are multi tiers of players.  The fewer players we have, the fewer matches there will be for a tournament.

So to keep it simple..... a rank group that is young, but has had time to grow.. would be ideal.  We older hands have battled..... but the interest has to be passed to those newer to the game.   Can we get younger players involved?  I believe so, when a group roughly equal to the others, can go to 'war', that an appetite will be created.  When players who  are too large attack young ones, absolute discouragement is the result.  To big to repel, to big to attack.

It is no fun to be food.  Unless the food can bite back.
