    PES wont work as you have to buy the game (and no one suggest it's free).

    Way more LoL players here and that took a while just to get the players needed, Smite being the same genre and less popular at that... I'm not saying it couldn't happen but it doesn't seem likely. Plus with LoL where is the fun in another MOBA, verity would be nice for other people.

    Yes, it needs to be a popular game that would work in a tournament format.

    What about WoT? I've seen that there was a tournament, but not enough players joined. It could be a good motivation for people to try out that game.

    WoT has been done before, a few times actually. The problem with WoT is despite gaining a few new members it's also lost just as many, I'm not sure we'd have enough based on past tournaments.

    That said WoT is probably the second most popular game on these forums following LoL and it's forum continues to do well. It definitely meets the criteria.

    Best Chance At Working

    WoT
    Hearthstone

    Iffy

    SMITE - I think smite has to show an uptick in popularity first, if the sub-forum can be revived and next weeks OGT works out well I think that would help it's case.

    Won't Work

    Pes
    Minecraft - It would require a server and judging by the turn out to OGT I don't think we have enough people that own the game anyways.

    I think the problem was that a lot of people didn't know there was a tournament starting. There should be some way to show important events and tournaments on the forum home (like a special bracket or something to differentiate them from other things) or to make a page like for the arcade tournaments, if it's possible.
    That would make it easier to inform people for important things. Just my opinion :)

    About that LOL tournament, i like that idea, best thing would be that all pll who wana participate write their roles and divison, to avoid 5 plat vs 5 bronze, or 3 ADC in 1 team, and 0 on another

    A rather large reading problem exists so it's not out of the realm of possibility. The thread is stickied in MOBA. If they can't find a sticky in the very section they use all the time I really doubt they would find anything else either though. Case and point we have an announcement system which we use at times but again it's largely ignored.

    That said, increasing visibility doesn't hurt anything however I don't think this large group of people wanting to play but can't find the thread actually exists. If they wanted to play that bad they'd be looking for it no? I mean at this point I've seen pretty much everything in the way of lacking of reading... so I can't really say it's impossible but it still seems improbable.

    I don't know that's my thoughts... anyways, increasing visibility definitely can't hurt. :)

    Hello, ok I am back now so we can see about some of this:).

    Willing to continue the evolution of these tournaments. They are fun and something we do want to grow. From what I have seen, the biggest problems has not been people wanting to join (we once tried a huge tournament for this reason), but a few people not following through has caused delays. The delays then lessened the effectiveness of the current tournaments and the following ones. It can become a giant negative snowball if not controlled.

    However, the past couple of tournaments have seemed to improve thankfully so I think we are on the track for a more positive giant snowball now:).
