- Winning team from last tournament may not be in the same team in this tournament

We won with 2 close maps, barely got through groups and can't play as a team again?  Is it just all 7 or can we keep our main 5?  Honestly that's pretty bs considering we didn't win by a huge margin and the 2nd and 3rd place team were just as stacked and could have easily won if a few ecos went there way.

 Might as well tell all top 3 teams they can't play together or just have people sign up to play the tournament and randomly draw it.


"We might as well just get 2nd place since we still get money and can remake the team in the next tournament"- In teamspeak right now.

I would say if the team won 2 tourneys in a row,  they should split up if not then they should stay the same if they choose.  Did you guys win back to back tourney?

We did, but it was close every time.  Didn't LLR win like 3-4 in a row?

I like this idea, but maybe that's because i'm shit at the game.

Definitely gives everyone a more fair chance.  I doubt any tournament where people can choose teams will have more than 3 teams with any realistic chance of winning.

If you dont have the exact same lineup then it should be fine. This tourney is for fun and for people to get some xp and win some loot.  Have fun guys and kick some ass. I hope we got a bunch of team playing this time, if we do I will increase the Tourney prizes. 

This is primarily the reason. As long as majority of the roster is different (You can have a few of your core players)

We don't want people to avoid this tournament due to the fact of "Oh, they're playing again, we have no chance of winning, why sign up"

We would like to see more teams sign up (as the registration process has been extended to 3 months instead of the usual 1-2 months like the past)
