So, just finished winning the exhibition 3v3 and I am not sure if I want to allow it or not. I need input, what do you think? If I did allow 3v3, it would only score a +1 for a win, I think.

Qualitively, it didn't seem too different from a 2v2, and if there's an occasion when 3 players from 2 teams all really want to play, then I can't see what harm would come of having that option.
The 2v2v2 seems more like my cup of tea though for a 'fun' game, and doesn't last half the night :roll: (just hope it catches on :wink:).

I was thinking about that after the 2v2v2 last night. 3v3 is much less of a rush for points than that 2v2v2 turned out to be. It's more team-oriented, and doesn't allow for alliance deals with a third team.

However, I'm sure some people will end up being more worried about getting points than helping their partners... but that happens in 2v2 too. :lol:

I like 3v3, it is much like 2v2. But the problem is if we have enough people to play a 3v3 match, then there should be the possibility to have one 2v2 game played and another team waiting for a second match.

Having a 3v3 addition might hurt the chance to have two ladder games at once played.

Arg, we already always have 5-6 TI guys on at any given time it seems. We need more from the other squads so we can get dueling ladders going.

I'd also like to see a 3v3 option.

I'm all for 3v3 provided it doesn't carry a reduced score, cos otherwise the players may as well just wait to play another game, so there's no point.

I`m also for 3v3 but it seems very rare to find enough players for that. 1 point for each player looks okay for me.
And please can we go back to the way Season One was scored for more suspense ? At the moment we have a to big and fast score distances between the teams i think !

Well, i will not play any 3vs3 games, but i guess there's no reason not to allow it.

No reason to not allow 3vs3.

But i think that 2x2x2 would be much interested because every team will try to win and it brings more competition.
And about poitns only winner should gain them. 5 points for victory.

2. place -2
3. place -4

Only risk is that it can brings to BOR but you can fix it with time limit. Maybe after 6 hours of game should start timer.

Anyway i agree with every decision and i will play that games if you allow them.

About the game of yesterday evening Image do you have recording?

You have to ask sfericz.

The reason 2v2v2 is out is because it was essentially a default 6 player game (mad rush for points) with no tactics or strategy, minus the backstabbing. Doesn't fit with the spirit of this ladder. 3v3 is closer.

Edit: I think I have all the new players on the list. However, if I missed somebody, just let me know.
