Sug: Tourney block enemies Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I don't want enemies of my flag to win the big prize in tourneys I setup, so can we add a block enemy option to tourney setup. This will keep all enemies of the tourney creator from joining the tourney. And I believe it has been suggested already to limit tourney to crew or flag only, but I couldn't find it. And this is different anyway.

These events don't happen for everyone, they end up happening on ships, or in private 1on1 matches, and results recorded on paper. You wouldn't be blocking people from fun events they can do now, because they can't do them now. It just makes it easier for people to do tourneys their way so the tourney organizer has fun. I would think a tourney where people at war with each other battle would foster name calling, taunting others, and generally creating an atmosphere of bad feelings, anger, and resentment.

Perhaps an easier solution would be to only put up a smaller prize when you make the tourney, and then manually deliver the big prize to the winners?

a better idea again would be tourny boards on grand frigates. sure it means you top out at 150 people but then you can keep whoever you want to out of it.

Tourney boards on grand frigates fix all kinds of things, including this. They're not even limited to 150, if they work like regular tournament boards. You can enter, then go somewhere else entirely and still take part in your matches! (In fact, you can even go to a tailor and pick a good hat from the rack to wear while you do! Intimdate the opposition with something black!)

Even better, this should be coming soonish, since we recall:

What would also be good would be a toggle where you could disable the automatic broadcast.

I dunno. Why not just have it still broadcast, but tell you that it's "on a ship?" That way, you can get pestered with tells about it, if you only want it to be semi-private ;)

There has been more than one occasion when I've responded to a tournament announcement only to find that some flag only wants their own people to participate.

Perhaps a good option might be to have a "my crew only" or "my flag only" setting on the tournament board for folks who want to run an internal event. The broadcast would then be sent only to the sponsoring crew/flag and only members could join the tourney.

Or making it like applying for a job. Whoever starts the tourney has to accept whoever (s)he wants to join.

*edit* of course this would have to be optional, don't want to have to do it for the public tourneys.

There should be a selection to make a tourney inter-crew or inter-flag. The tourney shows up only to people in the crew or flag and if you want some allies to join you can job 'em.

I personally prefer the competition of a broadcast public tourney but there are sometimes when I'm hosting an event for my crew or flag when I would like it if no one outside takes the prize.
