The community seems willing to make things happen. The resources to run an event beside the prizes themselves are there, but what event to be run? As it will mainly consist of community donations, I believe the community should have a big say in which event to be run, wheter it is bringing back an older classic, or creating a totally new tournament.

Possibilities are a Nations Cup, BBC4, MOH2, some sort of new tournament, GML Season 2 and a couple of more. I'm making a poll here to see what brings most interest and that would most likely be the next tournament. I'm not including Voobly hosted tournaments, and only the big recent ones.

Upon decision of what to go for, a Kickstarter will be created for the tournament, with a Prize Pool goal which would have to be reached before the tournament kicks off and the ball starts rolling.

My personal opinion is that a 1v1 or 2v2 tournament should be the starting tournament as we try out this Kickstarter thing. 1v1 and 2v2 are the easier tournaments to run, and those run without bigger problems. Taking on a big teamgame tournament right now might be risky, with the scheduling problems we have seen last TG tournaments.

Please vote for what next big event you want to see.

Re: Next Big Event?

BCC4, WCL8, GML2

I saw WCL7 and GML1, but didn't see BCC (I started looking for international community only when wcl7 starts). So => BCC. I just know about BCC, what Daut was training vs kkab to BCC2, and.. that's all :frown:

I also don't think what it'd be a good idea to start GML2 without making a some kind of "Masters League". For example, take 2 last places from GML#1 and send them to ML (Tim and Ming). Add, for example, Riut and Ruso to GML, and other tops who wants to play to ML. So every new season top2 ML would go to GML, and bottom2 GML would go to ML (or 3-4-5 ppl, it's just an example). Also, ML can be without money (players would fight for ability to get them in next GML), and to get into ML you should be 2k 1v1for example. And ML could be in DE system. Yeah. That's all)

Altough I do think it is time for a new Nation Cup (wich could be right after ? doesn't need cash price anyway, playing for your country is enough of motivation) I strongly believe BCC4 has to happen soon if we still want AOC to be attractive.

How is BCC played?

I wanna see big 1v1 tournement + NC.

And then GML plus ML later this year.

Imo there should be atleast 5-6 1v1 tourneys every year, but only 1 of them need cash prize, in that way there is always a 1v1 tourney in near future and tourneys really help to get better in this game.

I think NC can be run without a donation.

BBC4 has seemed for a while like the most desired 1v1 tournament.

WCL8 is likely the most desired team tournament. I think it would be cool to add some settings onto the ones from WCL7 such as having 1v1s and 2v2s in addition to 3v3s and more 4v4s than just ara.

it would be very motivating if like viper, daut , chris, who made money from aoc donate some prizes. Communtiy would follow these man and get a very good prize pool. Because now this game is old and most players are not child anymore most of us has a work.

BCC4 or WCL7 would be THE tournaments to happen really, if we want something big then I think those prestigious tournaments would most certainly be the way to go :D

BCC4
I'd like to see some mirror civs in the settings

and I'd loooove to see a lot of streams!
it would be good to get aoe2hd involved so that streams could reach 5k viewers
i mean, at least promote the event around the aoe2hd community

I'd only put 10$ though :frown:

i think WCL8 is going to be a bit one-sided (TyranT winning, and the other teams playing for the second place, just RVK can take them the trophy, but if DauT is in top shape, there's no chance for them). We are all tired of Hun wars, especially with the current style (scouts+wall+FC+CA). Nations Cup is going to be like WCL Brazil, China>All, and top players like Viper trying to get points with 18++ teams. So BCC4 is the best options, plenty of top players (despite of viper's dominance i think there are a lot of players waiting to take a chance against him). I hope it turns true :D
