tf2 draft tournament idea

0 Frags +

Idea: offseason tournament where the leaders of each invite team take turns drafting players (from the last season, don't think there's quite as much demand for newcomers as in football lol) in opposite order of standings. After the first 9 players are picked, the 9th place leader gets to choose their second player first, then the 8th place leader, etc.

I made a tweet mostly as a joke (link but RGL responded and said they would bring it up to the team as a potential cup idea, what does tftv think? The idea is to make pug teams which are more balanced and bring more diversity into things for a change, instead of mostly the same players always playing together and knowing who will make playoffs beforehand.

Another interesting alternative might be do have each member of froyo split up onto their own team and draft that way (probably have skeez pick first as medics can't carry nearly as hard as combat classes). If the draft idea doesn't get done by RGL or anyone for a cup, this could be a cool stream idea similar to the tf2 olympics.

Would be cool to have a cup run like this, and maybe the allure of a funny system make people get over having to play with people they haven't played with before.

Could also do it right after invite qualifiers as a building hype for the season thing, as it would probably be even better for spectators than it would for players, sorta like how DOTA Fortress at TotH was always huge.

Always wanted a draft tournament in TF2, I think its always been something this community has really needed. I've also always loved the idea of running it in conjunction with the idea of it being a hidden cup like they do in AoE I think it would be amazingly fun.

Woah I like that idea of a hidden cup that would be mad fun to watch, how would it work exactly? Chat mods would have to be pretty diligent in banning people who cheated and looked at logs to find who the players were (unless everyone had to use an alt account or something but that would be a ton of work), they'd also have to force everyone to wear no hats.

Could probably tell certain things by who uses original vs stock but would be pretty difficult I think. The prospect of playing and having no idea who's on the other team (admins would have to message both teams connect info) sounds wild and I bet it would cause people to play a lot different

Never really fiddled with server hosting, but can't you just not upload to logs.tf?

4 casters pick 4 teams (but don't play on them themselves) from a pool of top players and toxic players. The casters get a percentage of prizepool that increases the lower their team places. The player's cut increases the higher they place like normal. Force one person on each team to stream their matches and sit back and farm the twitch content revenue. Casters get a bonus cut if their team dies before they complete their matches.

If RGL or some independent group of people pulled this off I'm pretty sure everyone would love watching it/playing in it

Surely the players all just get fresh accounts for the tournament, seems pretty easy.
