The map is random no matter how many players, its one of the uncertainties of botf that should stay, so no point discussing that.Flocke wrote:as i stated your version of 1vs1 isn't more fair, cause all games will differ and everytime it's a random map!
you could have a go with very different and unequal start conditions and that's much more unfair than having a 3ffa with defined maps where everyone will play each race one time.
Having 3ffa instead of 1vs1 makes it more interesting cause of diplomatics and people that play for being the winner would always fight their biggest enemy and for that agree on affilation with the ones near to knock out.
For finding an end there were game masters if people don't get it theirselfes.
Normally two weeks should be enough for 3 games, especially on t5 small to medium map.
But if not, game masters would find an solution, I'm sure.
And I've had 1vs1 games taking a month or longer, that's not assuring play time.
It may not be your definition of tournament.
Your definition is having old time tournaments, that's all.
1vs1 is easier to manage because it relies on less people.
My definition is having fun playing fair games and see who wins. 3 ffa is not fair, 2 people would have a battle, then the 3rd person would clean up. Utter rubbish.
