Poll for Next PS4 Tournament Game Mode

Post#1 » Thu Jun 08, 2017 2:02 am

For this poll the options are Drop Zone, Droid Run, Multi-Mode, and Blast. The poll will be open for a little over a week. It will be closed on Friday, June 16th.

For the purposes of this poll, a vote for Multi-Mode will be a vote for this format below, in which maps and modes are preset before the tourney starts in the rules (example is for best of 5, but it also works for best of 3 if we do that for the earlier stages just ignore lines 4 and 5):

Drop Zone - Preset Map 1 - Higher Seed Faction
Cargo - Preset Map 2 - Lower Seed Faction
Droid Run - Preset Map 3 - Higher Seed Faction
Drop Zone - Preset Map 4 - Lower Seed Faction
Cargo - Preset Map 5 - Higher Seed Faction

For those of you new to competitive gaming, I understand you may not fully understand why I proposed this multi mode concept. See the links above for a picture and video example of how multi mode tournaments work and why it is by far the most competitive and most balanced tournament. This is not the only game to where there are stronger teams on certain game modes. It's nothing out of the ordinary..

A great and overused example would be Team Bangkok Thai Fighters, APOC or what ever you want to call them, they are the best team in the game at the moment. They are well balanced on any game mode with a slight advantage on Dropzone being their best mode.

I like to compare APOC to Optic Gaming. Optic is the best team in Call of Duty.. why? Because they are well balanced on every game mode with a slight advantage on other teams in game mode Hardpoint which is very similar to Dropzone. They dominate many tournament events but there are teams who are better than them at Search and Destroy which can give them problems deep into tournaments, giving other top tiers teams a chance to win a tournament.

On a side note it would also be great to see all modes being played in scrims, besides one game mode for the next one to two months. Before we know it the beta for Battlefront 2 will be out and we will on move on. And throwing out another idea for our last BF1 tournament ---it would be a cool idea to have a CLASS ONLY Tournmanent to end out SWBF1, something to where we have 4 players with preset classes similar to the infantry, specialist, heavy gunner and officier on a multi mode tournament layout. Not only will it prepare everyone for BF2 but it sounds really fun.

Like I said in the other thread when we were coming up with which Multi-Mode format to put on the poll, I really don't think the difference is big enough to say that it would be "by far the most competitive". I do think it would force there to be more variety for better or for worse. However many might not want variety for the sake of variety, though I think it could make things interesting. I also think many teams would take issue with the staff picking the maps and being forced to play Droid Run in every match. I personally do not think Droid Run is that bad of a mode, but I think many teams don't think it belongs in clan matches for whatever reason.

Maybe if we include a similar format in the next poll it would win if it is up against Cargo, but I'm not sure.

actually proposed this idea around the time of Cargo 1 and earlier I think. I have heard of some of the PC players doing some mixed scrimmages like this too. I was also going to add a class specific category to our open ladder but didn't wind up doing it because of how few people actually play on the ladder. The hard part is coming up with the classes / trying to make them somewhat balanced. It's okay if some are better than others in a class restricted format, but hopefully there wouldn't be too big of a gap.

You guys can play whatever mode you want in scrimmages. Just communicate with your opponents about it. Yes, most teams are gonna want to play a certain mode but you can always ask for other modes. Also I think it's too soon to even talk about moving to the next game yet, but I will say we won't be stopping SWBF 3 tourneys when the beta for the next game is out, most likely we would stop when the game is fully out. But even then we might continue on with this game if there is enough interest and/or if DICE makes the same mistakes again to the extent that we don't have a choice.
