    I want to sign. In order to sign I need to decide which chars I will use? Do I have to submit my items? Can I change items in between? Can I sideboard or something like that?

    I vote for solo, because the tournament starts @ 22:00 here in Finland and I don't want to be up for the whole night. :)

    Is the one legendary / character or party? If we want to sign up solo, should we post all three characters? Why is character level needed, isn't it forced to lvl 18 to even the playing field?

    Anyways, I think it's a bit unfair to ask us to post / lock our party composition publicly. IMHO it creates a bit of advantage to late comers, who will see what others are going to play.

    Also, I'd like to sign up, once some of the details have been worked out. :)

    Obernoob :
    a. if it will be a solo you dont have to sign up with character,
    b. you dont have to submit your items.
    c. you cant change when the tournament starts.

    Pawndawan :
    a. one legendary item per character.
    b. you sign in with you prefferd character so if it going to be solo you only *revealed* once character.
    c. no character lvl is needed it has been corrected =]

    I'm unclear on a number of things.

    Is there something "Bounty-Hunter" about the tourney, or is it just a cool name?

    Why these numbers? Both are going to result in unfair advantage/disadvantage in an elimination tourny as you'll have to give some players a bye for a round or make some player play twice for a round. Elimination tourneys should always be groups that are powers of 2 (2, 4, 8, 16, 32...)

    So if it's teams is this to 9 players, the first 3 teams, or is it just to the top 3 players (1 team)?

    Are you saying the prizes are yet to be determined and the quality of prize that BM is willing to offer will be based on the number of participants? Can we know what the breakdown is?

    By teams, do you mean co-op? If so, will we pick our teammates or will that be assigned? Will teammates be the same for the whole tourney, or will that rotate. What happens if one player on an assigned team is a no-show?

    Will every match be on the same map later determined, or will each match be on one of this group randomly selected for that specific match?

    I don't think you should require character choice to be locked in before teams are made if it ends up being teams. Teammates should be able to talk amoung themselves to decide what type of build they want and how their characters should work together. So basically until I know who my teammates are, there's no way to no what my character should be.

    Have you calculated how long this will take, are you sure doing it in one straight shot is a good idea? Will matches be going on simultaneously?

    How will this be enforced?

    Scraponi : you made some excellent questions and here are my thoughts :

    1. Bounty-Hunter its for those who search prizes and its a cool name =]
    2. You Right corrected to 32.
    3. if it be a "team" game its going to give reward to every one of the team members if solo only the first 3.
    4. as i said the more participations the far more greater prizes.
    5. maps are going to be diffrent on each stage for example : 1/32 - ice house
    1/16 - woodhome blizzard.
    6. by teams i mean like co-op casual game,in teams mode : every team keeps the same until they losing or winning the finals, teams will be randomely generated to keep good balance between players and For Elfs,Dwarfs,Humans. if one of the teamates no shows the you can find a replacement if that need to be authorized by me.
    7. For the Signup you have a good point but we dont want to make in maps that supports elfs to be an all elfs parties we want to keep the game fairly balanced.
    8. every encounter going to be 20 min. limit so if you make it to the finals its going to take you about 120 min thats it 2 hours so its not bad even if still i consider the time that will take to post results, pictures and etc. its going to be about no more then 3 hours.
    9. Moderator can easily look at the battlelog and see which items every player used.

    hopes it helps,
    harel.

    I am hearing blaring warning sirens in my head from reading harels84's posts. This "tournament" sounds like it's going to be rigged.

    - players have to sign up with what character(s) they're going to play
    - "Team" tournament, but harels gets to pick the teams?
    - harels is going to choose maps based on what characters people signed up with
    - trying to enforce some kind of character "balance," based on unknown criteria?

    Thanks for the reply! That clears some things up, but I do have a few more thoughts:
    This works great for solo. But if you go for teams of 3 you're either going to need 24 players for eight teams, or 48 players for sixteen teams. Interestingly, if you do teams of 2, 32 players still works.

    Will players be allowed to switch equipment/and or composition for each stage? Again how will this be enforced.

    But randomly generated teams could end up with all elf parties for one group and not for another (not sure what's wrong with elves, or if you should be trying to prevent certain comps as a tourney leader). Or it could end up with 3 players planning to bring a support priest and now they're stuck with each other. I think randomly generated is good, but once that happens, players need to be able to at that point decide on their make up depending on what items/builds their teammates can put together.

    The battle log records cards played, but not what items they came from. The only time the item is made known is when the card is shown on screen in the animation of it being played. So unless you're getting enough judges to watch 16 simultaneous matches in the first round....

    So let me see if I am getting this.

    There is a tournament. You have received confirmation from BM that you will be given prizes to destribute for it. There will be 32 entries to this contest - though I can't tell if that means 32 players or 32 teams; is it possible to have 96 total players (if everyone joined a team of 3)? Or if the max # of people teamed up, with that result in a maximum of 10 teams of three and two teams of one?

    I really like the idea of a co-op tournament, but it seems a bit weird to me that you won't be able to select your character or your team. Additionally, the methodology for checking again for the use of multiple legendary items per character seems really... I don't know, potentially problematic? Unless you have 16 on moderators checking in on every game as they're going on simultaneously, you're not going to be able to actually confirm any of that, and there still a chance that multiple legendaries would not come up in a way that actually revealed their presence.

    That said, I hope it does work out. I'll keep an eye out in the future, and might even sign up.

    Thanks for your response guys,

    Scarponi :
    1. if it be decided to be a co-op team tournament its going to be raised for 36 players or lowered to 24, if it will be raised some teams will get a BYE ticket for the first round.
    2. no every player have to play with the same items for the whole tournament, one map advantage and other disadvantage items.
    3. by what i mean in randomly generated is that everyteam will be generated in one Dwarf, One Elf, One Human if will be missing players will have to replace their chosen characters and if after that it will be still missing we will try to make it balanced.
    4. we get about 30 min before the tournament starts to talk to each other, ill be battle loged to all the encounters and if some players will say something suspicious the BM could always check it.

    Inkfingers :
    read the instructions, i write 32 players not teams but if we will get 96 ill be more then glad to manage the tournament, you will be able to choose your characters but not your teammates thats diffrent.

    regards.
