I disagree, i think these days most of the undedicated teams. Its these new teams that are playing their first tournament are the ones that are dropping it. Most teams are scrimming each other during the off season or as practice for the tournament, so itd be the same as that.

Overall tournament format regardless of mode is a different topic which we can address after the poll ends and / or after we see how many teams sign up.
As for a format if youre not planning on doing an open bracket Then dont force teams to play DR if they dont want to, or cargo or Drop Zone. The plan for a multi mode i think would be giving teams control over what game mode they want. That means that if team A and team B want to play each other with all 3 maps being cargo then let them do that. so for my idea team A is the higher seed team B is the lower
Map 1: Team A- Gamemode pick Team B- Map pick Team A- Faction Pick
Map 2: Team B- Gamemode pick Team A- Map Pick Team B- Faction pick
Map 3: Repeat Map 1 process and continue to alternate as necessary.
you should allow cargo, Drop Zone, blast, and Droid Run to be played.
I dont necessarily want it to be allowed but you could allow HvV to be played the only problem is the factions are so unevenly balanced itd be hard to do it fairly. which i think people realize. Meaning i doubt anyone would want to play it anyways. Im just throwing that out there.
With blast we come to the issue of people camping somewhere. Maybe 2 power weapons allowed in blast to break that up. other than that, most of our usual rules should work fine.
