Elo Tournament Dr Ido - Master - Monday 12/06/2006, 13:52
We will very soon start a new type of Tournament on Urban Rivals. The ELO tournament will be open to every one playing ELO mode (level 20 and Elo deck, see the rules for more information) and will take place over a month.
Everyone will start at 1000 and earn/lose points according to the rules of the Elo mode. Players will receive cards at the end of the month, according to their rankings:
1st: 3 collector cards
2nd to 5th: 2 collector cards
6th to 10th : 1 collector card
11th to 25th : 1 rare
It will works differently:
As ELO is based on game skill (where the "classic" tournament is more
based on accumulation), the ELO tournament will span over the whole
month, with no regards to the time of play. Any ELO matchs will count.
Well wouldnt putting putting a cap on the number of elo matches you can fight get rid of the horrid accumulation system alltogether ? If it will be still about how many fights you fight you'll have point farming just like with the regular tournament.
A cap would make it a real tournament not this point race we have now where a casual player has no chance and skill isn't rewarded at all.
Gorukha: accumulation in ELO is much more difficult, you really need to be good if you wish to climb the ladder. (especially since you'll earn less and less by winning, and lose more and more by losing as long as you are climbing the ladder)
K_Jun: Totally, only match between 2 elo players count in ELO.
