    Here's some things to discuss:

    Time investment into the mode is valuable. We started designing this event knowing Blitz is a very unforgiving game for new players, so we tried to make it more approachable. If you're experienced with Blitz, you've seen the recommended kit selector, shorter game time, all X kits and other details. More generally, the tournament was in a different mode (different NPC), which allowed having tournament-specific rules for the game. Overall, this means in the future we might a) edit gametypes further to make tournaments better or b) create completely new modes for a gametype, for the tourney.

    The impact of tournament on an older game was significant. We'll still have to look longer-term how many players discovered and decided to stick with Blitz. But during the tournament, the game peaked at 1,230 concurrent players, games starting very fast with a great mix of player skill. We're definitly interested in bringing tournaments to less popular games to give them their moment in the spotlight.

    12h over 48h was healthy. We think we've hit the sweet spot for max playtime / total tournament time. We will probably keep this ratio going forward, but may be play around with longer or shorter tournaments.

    The matchmaking worked well. During this tournament, we experimented with matching players of equal skills together (matchmaking) in the starter (lowest) bracket. This new feature caused some issues in the first moments of the tournaments, but once resolved has let players of all skill levels gain wins and points. On top of that, pregame times were way more reasonable at the top bracket than in the BW tourney.

    All in all, we are pleased with this iteration of the tournament and we hope you all enjoyed your time with it!

    We have some solid ideas on which game mode to organize next but we're open to all suggestions. As always we're reading your feedback in-game and on the forums. We aim to release tournaments every 3-8 weeks.

    :)

  3. So glad to see you live up to your promise of a blitz tournament after 4 years. I never thought you guys would get around to it, but you have continued to exceed expectations.

    Thank you so much for your continued dedication to smaller games and their communities, as well as your integrity. I love these tournaments.

  13. I had fun, I just had like 20 diffrent teammates, still managed to get top 500 :cool:

  14. It was a lot of fun to play, the biggest problem for me was possibly losing champion games to cheaters. Perhaps there could be something that gives back a little of the score lost to a specific cheater if they get banned shortly after killing you?

  16. Had a lot of fun playing despite the amount of times I got blatantly cheated on in the tiers (mainly champions, sometimes even leaderboarders on there lol), but it’s a nice change of pace for the game in general. I’d even like a new mode to replace nokits (rip btw) that’s called speed blitz or something, idk.

  18. Even though this broke my mental. I did have a lot of fun. Also great seeing how some of the older players came back for this.

    But if a shitty weekend at points but very fun!
