Before we start, I have infact won a tournament, I won 280k, in a melee only tournament, but still this thing seriously needs changing. Heres a couple of things...



1. Well, personally I think in the first three rounds, the system should sort who fights who by combat lvl not rank. This would then prevent things like a lvl 55 vs 110 in the first round happening. I mean, come on the lvl 55 may aswell just press the x in the corner of their screen, they'd have a better chance. Anyway, this way we would have more fair fights, and it would be more competitive. Plus it would be much harder to lose the first round five tournaments in a row.



2. The higher hp if the time runs out. This mean that even if you completly owned your opponent and they eat througthout the entire fight, you can still lose, lets say if the timer runs out, and you have 50 hp and they have 70 hp. Surely it would be better to decide who goes through, by how much damage was dealt by each person, or how little they healed throughout the fight.



3. The time it takes for each tournament to start can be tedious. Say if your rank is 1800, then you can only use two of the registrars (two and three). This mean that lets say registrar two is doing magic only and registrar three is doing range only then you'll have to wait a max of 20 minutes for the right tournament, lets say melee only, or all three types of combat. Personally, I think it would be much better if jaegx added around 4 - 8 more registrars, and having one do magic only, one range only, weapons only slots only etc. This way it would only take 10 minutes max to enter a tournament, and there would be les waiting around.



4. Finally, the no healing between rounds rule. This can be fun, but lets say if your a lvl 120 whose been taken down to 10 hp from their first round fight, and they come against a lvl 90 in the second round who has 70 hp left. The lvl 90 can basically one hit the 120, and they can do nothing about it. Personally I think this is fun, but it could be tweaked a little so that people are paired up by the amount of hp they have left, and their combat lvl respectivly.



So overall the duel tournaments are fun and possibly rewarding, but they do have many flaws and holes which can easily be patched over.

I'm ftp atm, so I haven't done tournaments, however, I have read the KB article and have taken part in standard duels.



1. I thought it was random? Anyway, if you are level 55 and there is a level 110 somewhere else in the tournament, you are going to meet him (and be destroyed by him) sooner or later. I think that the whole tournament rank was supposed to be used to eliminate the whole problem with pures, but then again, it shouldn't affect the proceedings of the tournament. I think it should be random if it isn't already.



2. Solution. Take food yourself, if the rules allow. Remember, there are no rules which only apply to one fighter.



3. Agreed. By the KB article, it seems tedious and restricting.



4. And why would a level 70 finish a round with that much more hp than a level 120? You aren't doing it right if that is happening. Refer to the solution on #2.

Lets say if the lvl 70 faced a lvl 40 in the first round, and lost 5 hp, and the lvl 120 faced a lvl 126, and was left with 20 hp. That's what can happen.

This is in reply to your first point;

in a few weeks time this won't matter, because the rankings will have levelled out, and lvl 110s+ will all be ranked too high to take part in tournaments with the lower levels
