But the problem is that the most of the top players in the game play amongst themselves and therefore are friends so teams will be stacked by default. I don't blame people for wanting to play with their friends however hence this has become a challenging hurdle to overcome.
Take for example,
Team 1: McShane, Ocrun and Zen. This is definitely a super team, howabout we add a few more:
Team 2: Pacov + Hedgie + Rawr;
Team 3: Soccer + Cowbutt + Peter;
Team 4: Myself + Nomilarac + Thundercles
3 of those 4 are super teams (we'd have 4 super teams if i dropped and was replaced by someone else lol)
if we had 200 teams sign up for the tourney, anyone of us could look at the list and says teams 1, 2 & 3 are heavily favored to win the top 3 spots in the tourney. If we decided to make the tourney full random demigod selection then it may even out slightly but that is usually dependant on who gets the shitty demigods or the demi's they aren't familiar with. Or we could even do 1 random assassin, 1 random general and 1 full random. But then again the outcome of the game is most likely dependant on who doesn't get the DA lol.
Plus most of the tier 1 - three person teams have been playing together (or played together) quite a bit so they know how to compliment each other quite well.
IF we try to break up the best players then some of them won't even want to play. However, let's face the fact that there are some very competitive players in our community who's desire to not lose a game or take the opportunity to criticize others outweighs their desire to be civil.
But I digress.
So, in honor of everyones post lets take a vote:
Should we create a rule that says only one tier 1 player per team (or draft or similar)? Yes or No
Yes = I want a draft, or similar
No = Let the teams form themselves.
My vote is No
Also, for those that said they will donate, their votes are worth 3 points, non donators votes are worth 1.
