As you might have "observed", the unofficial "old" mode (play without using pillz) has become a way for in-the-know players to reach
the top positions otherwise unreachable using "normal" play.
Since we do not want tournaments to be owned by a few players using specifics rules to advantage them, we are going to limit the KO
bonus points during tournaments to 5 points maximum in the tournaments rooms (just like we did about the EVO points).
This new rule will be in place starting monday, 12h30 GMT tournament.
Hmmmm how bout changing it to an elimination tourney so we can know whos the best of the best?
KUDOS Fraggle! This is a very good idea indeed.
By the way, does this rule imply only during the tourneys or at all times?
Being an OLD player I understand the need for a change. OLD players do dominate the tournaments. How about this. Why not create an official OLD mode tournament. Something like there is for ELO. Offer prizes and support.
That is a really bad idea, making tourney elimination... You challenge players here during tourney, they are not assigned to you... So how would that be possible?
I agree, if they think playing the "OLD" style is unfair, then why not just make an OLD tournament for OLD players... Besides this was how urban rivals really was before right? No pills...
Pocho never said anything about baning "OLD" players. He said why don't admins just make a move on people who use multiple accounts to boost themselves during tourney or those who intentionally uses multiple accounts to delay some of the leaders games...
1st tourney without the KO bonus, i won it and i played old mode. So how is it taking advantage over other players? I never had that much bonus now did I? The only reason why we get poitns that fast is because we play fast.
