Rank Warzone Tournament

The Bastion is one the top servers when it comes to PvP competition. Yet, we have few PvP events. Without diving into examining that issue for hours (thread pages) on end, lets get to the end-game.

Lets organize a ranked warzone tournament.

Unlike the hectic open-world pvp events ala Outlaw's Den tournaments, a ranked warzone tournament would be very simple to organize and maintain. Teams would sign up, brackets would be formed, then games would be scheduled and played. Winner is crowned top warzone team of the server.

Details would be hammered by those interested in organizing such event. If interested in participating, please reply to this thread. Reply with suggestions too. Stay on topic.
This thread is meant to touch base with PvPers out there about the topic at hand, not E-peen.

Kind of hard to do since WZ's are random, and other teams can Q up, preventing a matchup.

What do you want to do, Best of 3? Only a single match?

Does beating a team on Huttball mean the same thing as beating a team on Voidstar?

I'm not shooting you down on your attempt, I'm just imagining logistics getting in the way of organizing a true tournament that means much of anything.

Personally, I think your best bet is to get specific dates/times that might encourage teams to Q up all during the same period.

Thanks for the constructive reply. Rank-warzones when compared to normal warzones, are dead. Queue times are too long compared to regular warzones. Usually, when some PvP teams want to play ranked-warzones, they schedule with other teams. A team leader contacts another team leader, and they queue at the same time. Not to trade wins, but to have a competitive game.
A ranked warzone tournament would work similar to a system developed already by the community. The difference being, someone would keep track of who wins.

This brings up a good point. A best of 3 format would be preferred so a more diverse match would be played. Unfortunately, the game recognizes a win in Huttball to be the same as a win in Voidstar period. So we would have to still operate in the bounds of the game.

As much as I like this server that is just blatantly not true, pvp is much more active on other servers, specifically Prophecy of the Five.

Of all the improvements BW said they would do for RWZ, you would think adding the "challenge match" feature that Daniel Erickson mentioned more than 6 months ago would be easy to implement. Bioware, if you are not going to do Season 1 of RWZ this decade, please at least give us the ability to run our own 8 v 8 WZ tournaments! FFS!
