Having the same people do the same things in Leagues week after week is redundant and boring.
So let’s have real tournaments where players go ‘head-to-head’. Here’s one possible scenario:
Every winner of Diamond League gets placed in a 16-King bracket. Kings face off against each other: The player who gets the highest percentage of the other base defeated in the lowest amount of time moves on (% complete X # seconds = score). Players are seeded based on their Diamond League medal count. Each King has 1 day to play the other King’s base. Tournaments last 4 days. A player who doesn’t play is disqualified, and the opponent moves on automatically. Can be best score out of 3 raid attempts.
Round 1 (no victory): 10 gems, go back to Diamond League
Round 2 (only 1 victory): 25 gems
Round 3 (2 victories): 75 gems
Round 4 (champion): 500 gems for victor, 250 gems for runner up
The winner of each tournament goes on to a new tournament (consisting of winners from the previous tournament) until all players for a given cycle are used up. The tournaments will have a leaderboard so people can follow the action and see who is truly the top King in a given month.
It would be utterly captivating to watch as the results poured in. Alliance stats for the tournaments would also be displayed. It would make the game more personal, as we’d be going head-to-head. It would expose who is truly atop the leaderboard and who just plays wimpy bases all day.
It would make Diamond League more competitive because people would battle to get to the tournament. And Diamond League would also clear up a bit for players who find players from Vanguard or SK populating the league every time.
What would you modify about this idea? I feel like it’s time something like this has begun.
