Anti spam rule: no more than 2 of the same unit. I like the all xcom idea. I'm biased I use a lot of xcom units but aliens are cheaper for bigger guns and nades for sure. And at 10k nades are badass....

I belong to no social media groups. I'm as antisocial as it gets. People suck especially online (tredoggydog).

I changed the 20k tournament for next week to a standard tournament using regular rules.
The following week I added a Wacky Tournament with weird or strange or restrictions.

Im thinking since there are 4 weeks in a month, we can use 3 weeks for standard tournaments and the 4th week for Wacky tournaments?

Bladerip mentioned he wants to do a EU tournament, so I set one up as a Wacky tournament restricting use of EW content.

You guys have ideas, bring 'em on! alien

And the google bot has visited us!

Awesome, I updated the tournament rules for EW, and linked to the 10K stats there.

I'm also thinking of doing some scenarios like the Battle the Alien Invasion scenario. Will see how it works out tomorrow. I will be the game master for the new scenarios, where I will run a team, and the player will run the opposite team, obviously, and battling their way to victory.

As for the scenarios I got quite a few ideas, for example, to see the battle from Exalts point of view. Stuff like that. Most of the time the player will be on the low end of points, to reflect the struggle to survive. They will be posted on the Events section when ready. They will not be limited to a day, but rather to a week, so if you see me online, hit me up and we will play that scenario. Its more a way to flesh out the background story of the game.

I'm doing a 12 hr shift tonight, from 7pm Saturday night until 7 am Sunday, (thanks boss Rolling Eyes ), so I will be online tomorrow afternoon Texas time, Euro evening.

I also sent a PSN message to jackmagewolf inviting him to participate in next weeks tournament.

BladeRip, I never got to thank you for linking to this forum on the 2k forums! So here goes, Thank you man! Very Happy

I noticed no one replied at the 2k forums to that, even though theres 50+ people browsing that XCOM forum at any time. Perhaps you could make a new topic there with headline "Looking for multiplayers"? Then put a link and invite to this forum? I saw SSGB's invite on those forums never got moderated so Im guessing you'd be fine.

I set up the 7.5 and 10K tournaments for next month. Wacky tournaments match ups have been set.

Euros, please note the 7th of September is an American holiday, so on the 4th, 5th 6th and 7th the American players may, or may not be very available for matches, or not. In case its a bad weekend for the matches, I will allow round 2 to spill into the next week after the holiday.

No problem man.
I actually linked to the old site originally but then edited it to this one after we switched. I doubt it'll get any attention. I think the only people that seem to post on 2k these days are those that like to speculate about a game that hasn't even been released yet. Meaning that the xcom2 subsection of that site will be so packed with uninformative guff that they should probably create a 2nd xcom2 subsection once it's released, for posts from people that have actually played the game.

Noticed only darthblasphemer and myself signed up for the 7.5k starting tomorrow, guessing 7.5 got old and stale. Too many cyberdiscs maybe? How can we make it more interesting? Ban the discs? Limit the drones to 2?

So.....idea for future event. "X-COM, the first month." One squad of four recruits, each with only assault rifle and base armor, plus a frag grenade. V.S. a squad of sectoids and/or thin men adding up to less than 4500pts. May need to tweak pts allowed to aliens.

I like it. We just need to be careful with the number of thin men. LPR's+poison+roof access can swamp rookies even with grenades. Perhaps 2 maximum.

I still like 7.5k m8, but I need a bit of a break from multiplayer in general at the moment; lost some enthusiasm lately. I reckon banning cyberdiscs would be a good idea going forward though. They'd become like a win button in this bracket. It felt like you had to bring a plasma sniper rifle in any squad you built at this level or else risk finding yourself playing paper to someone else's scissors. I wonder though, if we ban cyberdiscs, whether mech squads will step right into their place as the new OP cheese build, once their main hindrance has been removed.

some lack of intrest here too, cant get much of a kick other than 20k games anymore, ill do the 10k tournament. maybe something new could be tried in 7,5k, all xcom soldiers would be cool like suggested (no mecs)

5 man team worked quite well against the cd team, 4 sj with lpr, Hunter with lr and SCOPES on everyone possible, good team in general too.

I also feel the need of a break. (Not just tournament but x-com un general). Thgh by the next 20k's i should have gained back my motivation;). As for the disc ban and the 4-5 xcomer on 7.5k i found the idea interesting.

We need xcom2 bottom line. It is a bit stale. The personality on the other end is really what's keeping me playing.

Alright, been neglecting this site this week. been busy on resident evil, had a killcount challenge event and I placed 93rd. 16600 kills, 1st place had 210 000. Fkn nolifers, lol. Getting a ton of free gear as a reward though, so not complaining.

Keijo put up a thread about exploits, I liked that, took some of the exploits and made them into rules for tournaments. Speaking of tournaments Keijo also put something in EU forum about playing tournaments there as well. Im thinking Ill put up a tournament there and we will see how the interest is.

Several people moaning about loosing interest, game getting stale, so thinking about changing the format to maybe 2 tournaments a month? Give everyone a chance to relax from commitments made on this site and look forward to next tournament. Or maybe 1 every three weeks?

So a tourney every 2 weeks, every 2 is a funny tourney.

So a ranked tourney a month, 10 k every 2 months and a 20 k every 2 months.

Got a couple ideas for funny tourneys, also got darthblasphemers suggestion which I will use along with my exalt ideas.
