7 man because the eighth is an observer. RWZ tourney because you cant que an 8 man group in regular WZs. Teams are welcome not to play objectively in the tourney, but they will loose :P

What do you need a person to observe for? Why gimp a team?

strangely I find myself agreeing with xerrin. We're all conditioned for 8man RWZs so why suddenly make them 7? Just require that every team have one person recording / streaming. Most teams on my server already do anyways.

If the teams are even, the teams arent gimped correct? Having an observer on each team to make sure the match goes well.

Teams will queue for rated warzones when called and if they do not get the matchup they will leave the queue and requeue.

No the teams are gimped because your'e playing around a 7 man dynamic instead of an 8 man. You ever had a DC in rateds and seen the way your team lacked from it even if you were against a terribad... wait nevermind you'd have to actually be on a good rwz team in order to understand what i'm talking about.

I'm sure they can do an 8v8 and have an observer sit in each persons mumble/ts3/vent and listen in just as effectively.

Lol nobody is going to mail you 7 million. This tourney is stupid, especially because of these dumb observer rules, especially since someone on the teams can just fraps the game. With the rule that killing the observer = instant loss, I foresee a bunch of collusion amongst different teams too.

While I agree the idea is terribly thought out I've never understood pvp players need to **** in someone elses cereal just because they don't like an idea.

You don't like it - don't participate. It's no wonder people stay away from rated's in this game when the general opinion is unless you're mad leet and have the backing from the self entitled big leaguers G T F O. Have your own comp and enjoy that instead.

That said, this tournament is still terribly thought out for all the previous stated reasons and you may want to address them if you want to run a successful event.
