Simultaneous servers for Driving and Strategy Games
Wayne is going to trial a new concept in 2006 for at least the first couple of RAW WAR Tournaments.
For both the Driving Game and the Strategy Game we will run 2 simultaneous games on multiple servers if necessary. This will allow players to choose the game they join.
For example when its the drving game we will run servers of V8 Supercars2 and possibly Flat Out or Powerslide (any other alternatives anybody?) Players can then choose which game type they join. Top ranked players will be required to join the top server if there is more than one server.
Thus you will be able to compete at your level and still gain points out of the round.
Ask Wayne for the details on the points but basically players will be ranked in a server and given points from the results.
We will also consider this with the Strategy game running maybe Warcraft DOTA Allstars alongside Generals.
What do you reckon? Which games do you prefer? If you have any others to recommend add them in the comments. They need to be a 8 (or more) player game so this rules out Need For Speed unfortunately.
