    Lightbulb TBS Fight Club!

    An idea that comes from Dark Souls, basically everyone logs in at a specific time, at a specific power level and then plays each other, sort of like a blitz tournament. This circumvents low population by logging in all at the same time. First to five wins, or after certain time tally up the points (+1 for each win) and Fight Club winner of that week is announced.

    So pick the best day in the poll (or another day in your comments). Each week, we can choose a different power level that FC should be hosted at, but the power level should be out of the ordinary so we don't match with non-FC members, I'm guessing over p12 or p9. Other rules like all units frontline, all units non-varl, one r0 unit required - can be made in the future, but lets play it normal for now.

    The first fight club will be hosted the weekend of 21st June!

    But just remember the first rule of fight club......

    Feel free to talk about Fight club!


    Next Fight Club will be:

    Saturday June 22nd, 1 PM EDT @ Power9


    Converted to other timezones:
    5PM GMT, 10AM PDT, 12PM CDT, 7PM CEST

    Rules:

    -First to (5) wins, is the winner of Fight Club
    -If none gets 5 wins, FC ends after 2 hours, highest wins (and least losses) becomes the winner

    Nice idea rod! Especially if non-standard team-powers are chosen (e.g. p9 , p11 etc). People in for the FC could throw a line in the forum-chat to "sign in". I can currently do powers 6-12.

    I'll vote Sunday, where I can play mostly any time (morning-evening), so that I have the chance to meet opponents from across the globe.

    Haha Aleo you gotta get to p18 soon, its the most fun power IMO :P

    I guess we should do p9 for the first FC to not exclude anyone. Another issue would be timezone, I wouldn't know which time to host FC considering the diversity of timezones of players. Any ideas?

    I'm missing about 1000 Renown to get there... Any leads?

    I guess the timezone should cover from the daybreak in Asia to the nightfall in America (about 36hrs) -- So that Europeans get to play more

    It might prove difficult to please everyone on the time zone front.
    I see two ways to go about this :

    - Long time frame (24~36 hours) : everyone can get in, but dilutes the players and runs the risk of not having two members of the fight club on at the same time, which completely defeats the purpose. Also, the winner will be determined by endurance and free time rather than skill.

    - Short time frame (1~4 hours) : not everyone will be able to participate, but by keeping it compact you make sure that FC players will actually play each other, points are meaningful, and this is not too much taxing - meaning it'S easier for people to participate regularly, rather than another tiring marathon like the tournament is.

    I'm in favor of a shortish (3~4 hrs) format. If you set it up in the afternoon GMT...
    - EU people are comfortable
    - you can get the Americans in the not-too-early morning
    - motivated Asia people could make do in the late evening (would be easier if it was a Sat night rather than a Sun night, which is why I voted Sat - but I don't really care honestly)

    I don't see other times where you can catch a wider range of the player base.

    I am *SO* not a morning person, 'Murica EST, but if on Sundays, I can usually go from 10am to 10pm. xD And it seems like maybe this should wait until the BM nerf is finally out. ^_-

    I'm still disturbed by the lack of response to my initial question. We here do know the premise and conclusion of Fight Club, yes? Are we trying to topple the TBSF regime? Possibly to force the first campaign into existence? xD ARGGHHH.

    Too public of a place to discuss. We'll have to reconvene behind closed doors xD

    Alas, I'm gonna miss this week's Fight-Club. Well, its a long-weekend trip to Pelion, so it's not like I'm gonna be missing pillaging, for a while! Perhaps I will catch next week's fights.

    PS - My daily log-in streak will also stop at 50...

    So in EST it's Noon, Saturday the 22nd! Amazing how three days span the Atlantic.

    Might be visiting friends that day, but if not, this could be fun.
