Faction Warfare Tournament

With the new Amarr championships taking place I had the idea that it would be pretty interesting to see a yearly Faction Warfare Tournament. Following similar guidelines to the current Alliance Tournament with one huge difference, you could only fly ships from the race that you are supporting!

I know some of you are already thinking that this would never work, and i can think of a few things that would be hard to counter but i really would love to see this, and feel that it would provide a snap shot of the current balance between the races from year to year. If one race wins every year... may want to take a look into some things, but if the champions very then all is well. There could be multiple entries per faction and each faction would end with a champion and then the final Championship Rounds would determine the Tournament winner.

Any ideas and feedback would be awesome.

But there exactly lies the hidden purpose of the tournament.

what about my RLML blackbird fit?

For posting an idea into F&I: come up with idea, try and think how people could abuse this, try to fix your idea - loop the process until you can't see how it could be abused, then post to the forums to let us figure out how to abuse it..... If your idea can be abused, it [u]WILL[/u] be.

The stakes need to be raised in Faction Warfare Tournament.

When a Tournament member enters the tournament they would select five enemy faction systems from a list. They would then select five friendly systems from a list. With each win a percentage of the selected enemy systems would become more vulnerable. The system would receive an alert such as "This system has been chosen by Tournament Member X and has received a X % increase to its vulnerability based on a recent win in the tournament. You can reduce the vulnerability of this system by running special missions from your Faction Warfare Agent"

Each win would increase the systems vulnerability by 35%. Only one system would be affected with each win.

A penalty for losing a match would result in a friendly system becoming more vulnerable.

"This system has been chosen by Tournament Member X and has received a X % increase to its vulnerability based on a recent loss in the tournament. You can reduce the vulnerability of this system by running special missions from your Faction Warfare Agent."

Once the tourney member has won five matches they would be given a second list of two enemy systems and three friendly systems to choose from. The percentage of system vulnerability would increase slightly for wins and dramatically up to 60% for losses. The same systems from the original list would be the systems chosen from that would appear randomly to select from.

Once they are in the top tier of the tournament they would have one friendly and one one enemy system to choose from that would not appear on the list they chose from before. If they win the match then the enemy system becomes 85% vulnerable. If they lose the match then the friendly system becomes 90% vulnerable.

Systems could only be chosen based on the Faction area that the tournament member is from. Minimatar/ Amarr and Gallente / Caldari.

I think that faction warfare modules should also be created based on the tournament members who win their matches and would become drops in a random site that has been chosen by the tournament member. The Faction Warfare Drop Site would need to be scanned down first using probes where a special Faction Warfare Site Key would then need to be used to access the site. The special key could be purchased from the LP store for no less than 250,000 LP or could be a random drop. The Key would be specifically coded to a certain system and could only be used once.

Systems that have module drops in them would appear on the factional warfare GUI regarding daily kills and system changes.

Or, you could just contest FW normally.

Why would entities at war come together to have a nice polite tournament with arbitrary rules?
It's a WAR!

Then go and organize one. CCP doesn´t create the content for you. Go do something if you want it !

Pretty sure CCP set up the Amarr championships.. and the Alliance tournament for that matter.
