I want to host a 32man (or 16 if 32 is too much) single-elimination 1v1 tournament. I love 1v1s but I feel like there aren’t enough.
I am hoping some of you can give me some advice (or even participate) so we could pull this off.
What I think so far:
100mil Jita Price Limit – You can fly ANY ship, but it hull + modules + rigs + drones cannot exceed 100mil. Your ship will be inspected by a referee if you win.
No Implants, win or lose your dual, you will be killed by a referee at the end of the fight to ensure you have no implants. Players will set their home station to a station within the competition system. If you cheat you are disqualified.
(Alternative: Implants are allowed, but included in the 100mil limit)[Winning players will have their valid implants reimbursed by myself)
Prize: 2,000,000,000 ISK first place
500,000,000 ISK second place
250,000,000 Isk 3rd & 4th place
Total prize purse: 3bil
Dual will occur in highsec, starting distance undetermined. not sure what to start the players at. Maybe you guys can help. Could do 3 distances, 100,50, 25, with each player having a veto. For instance, Jeff veteos 100 and Bob Vetoes 25, the dual will start at 50. If two options are left, a coin will be flipped and/or (better option??)
So what do you guys think? Is it possible to pull something like this off? I will provide the isk myself, players will have to take the upfront 100mil risk with their ships to enter… I feel like a 3bil prize pool is worth it though.
Any insight appreciated.
Note: Abyssal modules not permitted
