That's what won the last tournament, but it's because of poor ai.

Unfortunately the designs that can beat it get beaten by almost every other design.

I did mention I was going to make my own versions for the next tournament... but nah, I'm not that cheap, this tournament is for fun fights not winning due to exploits.

If ai works properly, my faction 4 probe will stay wayy out of range

I have new category suggestion to add to the existing ones:

I'd say having a minimal number of categories will likely work out best, the more categories there are the more spread out the submissions are, which will lead to less competition in each category.

Not to mention the stream would have to take longer to fit all the fights in, and Arthur only has so much time to stream.


Yeah that's basically our goal. I'm not saying these will be the only categories forever, and we are worried about how dominant faction 4 will be, but I think we will be erring towards fewer categories with simpler to understand rules.

To compensate we might expand final bracket size or something like that. Basically this is all still an experiment, we want to see what people submit and will tweak rules/categories based on that. I think if we learned anything from the previous tournaments it is that we can't think of everything you guys will come up.


So if this is an experiment then... Does that mean all the ships that was entered into this contest will not be added into the game and not revealed before the real tournament started? And until the real tournament is over they will all somehow be added into the game...

What Colin means is that they're still unsure as to what bracket categories would be the most fun.
So they are having some rather loose categories, seeing how things turn out and adding more rules/restrictions for the next tournament based on the results.

Is there a way to get only the ship I want to submit into a LUA file? My entire fleet is in the LUA file the game created.

Yeah this. This is a 'real' tournament, we just expect unbalanced results and want to know what they will be before making more rules.
