In all actuality, do you mind if I take your rules word for word? I like that there are no tank/heal combos. Those are boring and last a ridic amount of time.
Donations will be accepted for the prize pool, but I am not making them mandatory. The reason I am not asking for money for this is because (even though I wouldn't dare) it is sketchy to just give money to some random player. I can't think of anything in the game that would allow for that.
I will just pay out 1st, 2nd and 3rd. EVERYBODY will get something. Whether it be a stack of medpacs, adrenals, a special piece of cartel gear. This is all out of my own pocket. I just want to do something awesome for the server, because most of you are amazing people and pvpers.
I think that's incentive enough.

The last 2v2 tourney hosted by scold started in jan. There's still 4 teams in it who are now in the second last round. It's march.... its just really hard to organize teams to play against one another on this server.

I understand, Sifu. I am actually thinking about organizing something on a larger scale after 2.0 comes out. After everyone gets gear and it normalizes, I think that will be the perfect time to start up something again.

I'll post here again after I talk with a few people and gauge interest.

Just a teaser: Arena league. It's gonna be like the gosh darn NFL. We'll have divisions (round robin in each; best out of 5), then brackets for playoffs and other stuff. Haven't really worked it out in my head, but I think a 20 million credit grand prize would be awesome and more than doable. I'll even make a website for it so we can keep track of everything. The tournaments will be play as you want, just like Scold's 2v2s, with a general deadline so it doesn't drag on for months (more importantly, over patches that may change gameplay).

The game is not balanced or set up for pvp in an arena format. I mean the 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, or whatever tournaments can be fun and a break from the monotony but you simply cant win unless your entire team are sins or ops. Otherwise you will without a doubt start the match one man down (at least. good teams would probably global your entire team without taking a point of dmg if you were playing a comp of 3 of the other 6 classes). Their isnt any room to build a good comp with a good team because their is only 4 choices.

1. op/op/op
2. sin/sin/sin
3. op/op/sin
4. sin/sin/op

This game is a long way off from implementing any kind of arena and would require a completely seperate build of abilities and mechanics for it to work. I would not be surprised if in 2 or 3 years (or ever) their were still no arena in swtor.

I really don't care. This isn't really for anything serious and it is designed for exactly that: having fun and breaking the monotony that is 8 man warzones. I stated before that I know there is class imbalance, and I know it will play a factor. The bottom line is: I don't care. And yes, I firmly believe that elite players with those combos would destroy everything in their path, but there are many variables. I'll have you know that in the past 2v2 we had a shadow/sage combo defeat an assassin/assassin combo AND a marauder/sorc combo beat an assassin/operative combo. WEAK players will always get schooled by STRONG players.
