    Default Crazy idea for ranked 5v5s

    I was watching some old Eve pvp tournament videos and was reminded of one interesting thing they do. Prior to the matches each team is allowed to basically outlaw 2 ship classes for the other team, of course without knowing what classes the other side will pick. They then have 10 minutes or so to decide on their team makeup and devise their strat and what not.

    What would you think about that being an optional mode for competitive 5s? Let each side pick maybe 2 souls that can't be used, and thus causing players with any points (or even 0) in that tree to have to pick a different role for the match.

    I dunno. Just trying to stimulate interesting conversation.

    You do know it would be practically the same souls picked everytime. Sentinel, Defiler, MM, or Dom.

    Class/soul restrictions would be a terrible idea.

    Yeah that's what I figured would be the response.


    What about 5v5 of all one calling? Who doesn't want to watch 10 clerics go at it?

    Wouldn't work for the reasons listed above.

    Lets modify it somewhat. Lets say that players are limited to 5 role slots for PvP tournies. The other team can pick 2 slots (1,4) and the other team couldn't use those builds? Potentially good, but with some workarounds too. Just an idea to continue the flow of conversation.

    Pretty interesting idea, im affraid it wont be widely liked as people dont like playing things they arent comfortable with.

    But to play a long, Would be cool if the 1 or 2 specs that they banned would also qualify for your team as well.

    I'd love being forced to not play MM in 5's. Holy crap.
