Hey guys!

Once again our team would like to clarify the most significant aspect of a draw procedure and to focus all the future captains attention to the essential advantage of guessing the coin

 

The thing is that the winner is not obliged to start excluding first. It is strategy wise to forfeit that opportunity to your rivals.

Watch the math here:

There are three groups and five planes in each one, i.e. odd number. Thus If you are to start eliminating, then your opponent will ALWAYS be making the final choice whenever there are just two options left - either a group or a plane. So if you really wanna stay in control of the things you SHOULD use your right to make your rival start the elimination

Does this mean that I need every plane on the list to participate in the tournament because I don't have every plane on the list and I fear that I won't be able to unlock them all in time

Well, there is an elimination strategy that 2 of the 3 groups will be disappeared.

If the rival team wins the selection opportunity, they will eliminate 1 of the groups (Or they may pass this opportunity to your team for the sake of strategy),

in your turn, you'll do the same. So you can focus on a group that you want to choose but

no one can say that your favourite group can survive after the selection.

 

Other than that planes will be limited as we put them on the list, there is no way to change them.

Planes are not so high tier so you may get them easily without so much effort.

 

It's better to have all the planes for keeping the balance of the tournament for everybody.

 

 

can you put an example of a 4v4, I don't understand how that works

 

4v4 is the 3rd and the last round of the fight.

For example,

Team Blue spawns at Bravo Point in the same time with the whole team

Team Red spawns at Charlie Point in the same time with the whole team

 

post-14171-0-03253900-1362021354_thumb.j

 

As you can see in the screenshot, their positions are already designated in the map.

So they work together and move to the each sides enemy spawn points.

 

B goes to C

C does the same for B.

 

Fight begins with guns hot situation, without merging.

Tournament divided into 2 difficulty settings, RB and SB, you don't need a joystick for RB, if you can read the informations at the top just once more,

you will be confirming that by yourself as well.

What is the point of complicating aircraft selection?  To me, it seams confusing and unnecessary.  For those of us participating in our first tournament, these complications are a barrier to entry.
