While we know that they aren't everyone's favorite in the competitive environment, we think they can be interesting.
Now, just today we were talking about a small, itsy-bitsy, and completely HYPOTHETICAL tournament and deciding the rules for that.
Of course, drones came up. Instead of thinking binary, we decided to take a different approach.
What if we banned some drones? What if we drafted them?
To be clear: We are simply talking about this ENTIRE HYPOTHETICAL tournament that we are definitely not working on at the moment.
(Don't keep your eyes peeled for news, you'll waste your time!)
This is not changing game rules, this is not the content of the next patch etc.
Just rules that would be enforced by a tournament & referees.
That said, we would of course share the feedback with Wiple if we see good ideas.
I'll start with a rough draft we had.
Drones over 3000 points = banned
Each person can use 1 drone per match.
Each drone is decided before the game, declared one by one, team by team, as in:
Team 1 Member 1: I choose x
Team 2 Member 1: I choose y
Team 3 Member 2: I choose z
... and so on
Max 2 (any) Jammers per team
Max 1 UAV Recon per team
Same drone can be selected by multiple players
Idea here is to remove the "super weapons", provide some strategic capacity to counter via taking turns and restricting drones.
So, what do you think about this idea?
What rules would you set up?
Let us know in the comments and don't forget to subs- wait, wrong media. Just drop the comments!
PS: inb4 how about no drones
