As you know, we make modifications regularly in order to make the game better for everyone.
So, as of Monday, the daily tournaments will change:
2 (perhaps 3) new formats will appear with the following rules: no doubles, not more than X stars, and not less than X stars.
It is much less restrictive than ELO mode, but still ensures certain balances exist between players Decks.
Addition of special rooms:
New special tournament rooms will be created for each of the new formats (not required for players of very low and high level). These rooms will be available at all times but matches will count towards tournaments only when a tournament is in progress (like the current system).
Withdrawal of the other rooms from the tournaments:
The matches in the other rooms will not count towards tournaments (even when a tournament is in progress). This is so that everyone plays under identical conditions during the tournaments.
- Lowering of level up bonus during the tournaments:
These changes are being made so that tournaments are played in a “combative” spirit and the rules of Urban are not twisted, giving an advantage too strong on certain types of “way of playing”. The bonus for leveling up a character during the tournaments will be reduced from 5 points per level at 2 points. This isn't meant as a punishment for people who played with certain styles.
You know what i love about random factor :
- One hit KO most likely not works.
- You don't have to spend most of your pillz in two character to make sure hit.
- When attacks is near each other you don't know who will win.
What I hate about random factor :
- simply when a card with attack 10 beat a card with attack 50.
- It's all about how lucky you are no skills.
about tournament deck types i think they are good if you feel you are skillful play with type 1, you need to use all your powerful play with type 2 but i think they should choose the maximum stars in that deck not 40 of cource, and i think it should be two rooms with random and without random.
I agree with Logomantos.
We need to get a tournament room with random turned OFF. Some of the players like to win a game or two or even lose a game or two due to their mental capabilities.
Please bring back a room for tournaments with no random..
FAREWELL TO FUN...
I just finished tournament, ended 18th, pretty good for me, and if the system would not exclude my first game, when I scored 38 points, I would go 5th, what is my personal record... yeah, WOW, let's celebrate...
however, it was the most boring tourney I ever had, no fun at all... it was like one glaze over my and opponent's cards, swift decision, let's try 5 pills on Willy and we will see, who is the lucky one today...
oh, sorry, I forgot, there was some fun, every time when some lvl 1 card with 3 pillz beat my superhero I was laughing a lot, but excuse me, this is not a fun I want...
the only group that can benefit from new rules must be people, that don't use brain much and they just want to play and possibly win from time to time... yes, they profit, now even the dumbest person (maybe even monkey) can beat you and those people must be so excited now...
BTW. DID YOU NOTICE THAT 9 OF 10 GUYS IN TOP 10 ARE 16 UNDER LEVEL? THE ONLY ONE HIGHER, IS N A D I R, A PLAYER I FOUGHT BEFORE AND I RESPECT HIM. (http://www.urban-rivals.com/player/?id_player=511191)
IS THIS WHAT YOU WANTED WITH THESE NEW RULES? SHOULD WE ALL MAKE NEW ACCOUNTS, TRANSFER OUR TITAN CARDS THERE AND CRUSH ALL NOOBS AROUND?
Well I won't consider EVO out yet it is just the first day that the new rules has been implemented. When the admins reduced EVO pts to 5 a year ago many said EVO style is dead but they were still able to dominate. Let's wait for a few more days and we might see an EVO player reach the top.
I see all these EVO players who complain about the new tournament system, with good reason i'm sure.
perhaps we shouldn't exclude EVO...
Maybe the best way is to have an EVO only tournament in addition to a Non EVO tournament (anybody who can win both at the same time would be the man, but that'd be nearly impossible)
IF we had two simultaneous tournaments, people could have more fun playing, and wouldn't have to worry about either not getting their coveted advantage, or having to deal with other players getting 200 points more than them based on a game exploitation.
a double Tournament, would mean a double payout, likely of less value, and it would probably be a nightmare to code(probably not too problematic to code)...
and it would also pay out an additional set of credits, which i don't know if that'd be a good or a bad thing...
thats just my opinion on the matter.
people complain about EVO.
Evo complains about the new system...
people who don't complain about evo appreciate the new system.
so make two systems
Well all i know is the last few tournaments before the change there was an equal mix of evo and non evo in the top 50 problem more non evo but since the change no evo's in the top 50.
if you wanted to lower evo's points a tad drop the levelling points tho thats not how evo get their points we just play faster and with less overpowered decks.
I think its all down to the more experienced players choosing not to play as of yet.....i usually play in all the tournys during the day to get at least a credit...but didnt bother with todays because of the changes
Also if not noticed...those that usually take part and do well in tournys are not there atm....
Thanks for everyone added their voice to mine... (Although, 1ShadowUK... I am Blu Sevens, not Blu Stevens.)
And to esteemed Admin, while "Sure Shot" is better then nothing (i.e. total randomness), I still don't think it would replace non-random battles. So, if my character x2 more attack then my opponent’s he/she wins, but if my character has only x1.75 more attack then my opponent’s? For instance, in one of the battles earlier today, my characters had less attack then my opponent's in first two rounds, but they won't in both anyway. And in the third round, my character had more attack then my opponent's, and guess what?! He lost! So, for all intents and purposes, the attack is all but meaningless! And personally, I think this destroys the point of this game.
Lol sorry Blu Sevens...my mistake...was more concerned with the issue
Well at least i can play ELO non-random to get points in tournys...just go for the credit i guess...having no "no random" room discourages me from trying to score high in tournys...knowing how luck goes
