So, I thought the moba tournaments were for mobafire members, or people that actually participate in the community. Captiankorea, 4not? wtf? Are you really going to let these challenger kids that have 0 POSTS BETWEEN ALL 7 MEMBERS steamroll your tournament? I call ********. I recall someone telling me that this tourney was for moba members, not some ****ty extension of go4lol.

Not putting you guys down, but are you really going to let 2 ALL DIAMOND 1 and CHALLENGER teams just steamroll everyone? who the **** is going to have fun?

I will, as long as my team doesn't drop out again (if I were to register) :V

Challenger/Diamond 1 teams =/= guaranteed win.

the points is that they are not a part of the community. they're just here for some free RP. Do you want this to be go4lol or do you want this to be a COMMUNITY cup

The current requirement is "Have a MOBAFire.com account in good standing." There is nothing in the description of the tournament that says it is for only active community members.

They will either be active or not, it is hard to define activity objectively and for it to actually be effective since quotas will often just be cheated / spammed. Having tournaments provided by a community site generates interest in the community part of the site for those participating and gets more traffic to the site in general, including the forums.

Also in the tournament descriptions:

Quoted:
The vision for these series of tournaments is to cultivate growth withing the community for all levels of skill and to provide consistent competition and incentive for teams to pursue their dream of competing at the highest levels.


It would be unfair to disallow teams to participate based on their league tier, especially since we pointed out that we want all skill levels there. I am sure we don't want a pro team easily winning every time and we will come up with a solution to this if it becomes an issue.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

"to provide consistent competition"
Ok, so why are you letting 1 professional team in? Where's THEIR competition?

"I am sure we don't want a pro team easily winning every time"
And yet it's going to happen.

Ok, so you have no way to discern if someone makes real posts or spams. ********. Spam gets reported all day long. If I see 4not roll into a thread with a 'hi' or something else useless to pad their posts i will report it in a heartbeat.

Diamond 1/challenger kids are to plat 1/diamond 5 kids what plat 1 kids are to silver 5 kids. It is practically impossible for my team to hold a candle to the professional teams seeded above me. However, my team of low plat/high diamond kids have been beaten soundly by a handful of mid gold players. The skill disparity isn't that insurmountable.

A challenger/Diamond1 team is unbeatable except by other challenger/diamodnd1 teams.

So I noticed the pro team won the march cup. How many months are you going to let them win in a row?
