My opinion is irrelevant, I suggested it to accommodate those that complain about playing year around. I understand the concept of a "play in round." For those of you that have been here a long time would know that anything over 16 was considered the "play in round" in the first two cups. My idea was for that to be the same. As Bruce pointed out, we are not done with CC2. It takes a long time to finish all of these wars. The clans who are repeatedly in the final 4 or so are never getting a break. I also suggested limiting it because if we expand it to another play in round, then the entire tournament will last even longer. Eventually I feel the tournament needs to be capped somewhere, otherwise it'll turn into a 2 year event which would be entirely too long in Conquer Club life terms.Foxglove wrote:I think a break is nice
i think the best argument for limiting the number of clans for the event is the duration it would take to have 5 or 6 rounds instead of 4 (or whatever we have now). You're totally right, chuuuuck, that a Conqueror's Cup that lasted two years (or more!) would be far too long.
if top clan want a break they can skip a year its that simple there should be no cap to accommodate top clans we can implement round limits to shorten games if needed there are other things we can do as well. only the top 2 clan in the final have the right to say they need a break and i am sorry i do not feel sorry for a clan that's in the final and they feel they they want a break so we should not let in lower rank clans, this is the very reason CC does not take competitive clan seriously. if we can get a play in round going by may 1st we can start the full rounds around by mid June
This also may be a mute point. At quick glance I see 38 teams on the FD400. Surely not all of them have 2 completed wars of 40 challenges, do they? I also wouldn't imagine they'd all sign up. So we may only have 28ish signup. Anyone care to check these numbers?
all clans on the fd400 have 2 wars in there are actually a few more about 4 or 5 i think that have 2 wars that just are not ranked yet i think Gunn would have the exact number chem has that info also.
p.s. My orinigal statement about starting the first Conqueror's Cup was to give EVERY clan a chance to fight and prove they are the best, regardless of status (but still using a 2 war rule to make sure the clans will stick to their commitment).
I do still agree with that, only reason I would consider denying anyone so far down now is the logistics of completing so many wars.
