    3v3 as long as the match can still go with only 1 person on a particular side.

    Trying to please everyone : what about setting the default number of players to 3, but leaving the choice for both teams on the amount of participants ?
    For example, if a team has only 3 members available, the other team has to line up no more than 3 players, but if both teams agree on it, they can define in advance the number of people involved.

    Ant: What of the 1-man cap idea then? Would it be 1-man cap if it's 3v3 and regular 2-man if it's 4v4? What if a match has to be played 4v3, say if both teams agree but on the day one can't field 4 people?

    Also, does that mean a team could 'fake it' and pretend they have only 3 players, if they want a 1-man cap game? Not throwing any accusations yet obviously, but thinking of everything is what I do. Or at least try.

    To be honest I'm quite torn on this issue. One the one hand I much prefer DTAS with 8 players (although 6 is passable, but I still prefer 2-man cap), but on the other I'm aware of a certain clan with only 3 players, and I wouldn't want to force them out so to speak. I'd vote for a default of 4v4 but allow 3v3 if both teams agree on it.

    Thanks for letting people vote :tup:.
    Sounds like a good compromise to me.

    I had the exact same idea. For the rule committee it should be worth reading our brainstorming thread...

    Of course, i too would prefer 4vs4 as the default number of players. I was just saying that in case 3vs3 was chosen :D . The idea is to have a more flexible system to suit everyone and to garantee a less repetitive gameplay (my guess is that playing only 3on3 matches can become boring quite quickly).
    I have no experience of such events, and when i suggested this idea i was assuming everyone would behave as gentlemen, which of course is not always true in the ruthless world of videogames. After all, some people's self esteem depends on it. :lol:
    About the 1-man cap, yes that could be a problem, and i hope the organizing team will reconsider this.

    Since everyone seems to forget why 3v3 is so cool, let me remind you.

    1) Maps actually become big enough that stealth tactics work. Most maps you can't guard all entrances like hawks with only 3 people, so communication and teamwork become extremely important.

    2) Oh wait, I forgot it's DTAS. I don't care anymore. :p

    Unless you have some sort of super-complex claymore system that takes 5 minutes to set up, that makes defending sound really boring, depending on the map of course.

    Ever tried playing a serious 3v3 game on a big map, Derelan? The suspense and anticipation make for an amazing experience.

    Seems 4vs4 is winning hands by a big margin.

    Seeing that DTASAL is not going to be clan base, I would not think getting 4 people would be to hard.

    On that i could agree. Except that the original presentation of the league mentionned the use of small maps.

    Yes. It has been clearly said that once the rules are finalized they will be posted. They are currently finding out what people tink and they are building the website.
