Can you guys use something other than a beacon to mark the center of the arena, I don't like having beacons on overview when there's like 80 of them in system.

A polaris frigate f.i. would work fine if it was the only one on grid, or a structure of some kind, just something unique I can quickly add to overview at start of match.

Thanks!

Note I didn't take part last time so dunno if I'm basing my request on obsolete data~

Signing this. Please use a Container or something like that, so that you only have 1 Arena-Center in overview when your infight.
Beacons are really annoying if you sort to anything else than range.

Sorry, no. It needs to be something you can see throughout the system and warp to, which is pretty much beacons.

Can't you guys use your techno-wizardry to change it from a beacon into something else when the teams are in position?

Not with 0 time to deploy and test, I'm afraid. We're a bit late for such changes.

Can you set the beacon to negative standing and sort through filters? Big smile

So you are locking in the build and not making any changes thru the whole tournament?

Can't you also anchor a container at the same spot as the beacon?

How about anchoring a static container at center, aditionally to beacon?

So once we are in, we can take bakons out of overview. And u dont have big testing required, like transforming beacons into something else.

This improvement really would be great.

yes,

or anchor a bubble next to the beacon, this way we can take the beacons out of the overview and just let ONE bubble stay, just like we do in pratices.

Oh hey good point guys. The tournament warp bubble is stacked perfectly on top of the combat beacons. That should cover ya, right?

Don't they normally cloak it or something? I seem to remember it magically disappearing last time.

If we can add it to overview then a bubble is perfect..
If it's invisible then add something else to the middle in addition to the beacon (like another non-invisible bubble xD)
