So tdm tourney? tempted to make efforts to find teamates to desmonstrate why TDM is a bad comp game mode. Also too cheap to buy Genesis.

Organized TDM.  With regards to the current selection of available team modes, TDM is as feasible, if not more so, than both MA and Siege for 3v3 play.  Until team HWK puts in real competitive modes, our options are limited.

Who will be hosting the stream? I know he has never commentated before for hawken but BlackCephie would make an EXCELLENT commentator. If a commentator is already chosen then please remind them to maintain the level of professionalism that a sport commentator might have.

I know its just community 3v3 and its all fun and games (ha pun?) but the commentator is the voice of the community during this event and as such must play the part.

Justifying TDM as a valid comp game mode based on the fact that you are enforcing a 3 player limit per team is a weak argument. Might as well have a 5v5 or 6v6 MA tourney then.

Please don't misunderstand me, the point of my initial reply and this one is twofold 1. show my interest in participating 2 demonstrate that TDM is a sub par comp game mode. Turtling will be the name of the game, techs will essential to victory and long drawn out stalemates will make for great viewing experience.

I have a weekend seminar on the 18th through 20th (so we'll probably want to schedule it for those dates).

TDM is always a valid comp mode.  Just because some people hate it doesn't mean it won't be played comp.

If you could delay until last weekend of Oct or later, it'd be super great on my school schedule.  But thanks for the info.

The holiday seasons when most people have more free time?

@H0b0
Why exactly is team mode a bad comp game mode? I'm still not understanding personally.

How does one win a TDM? Get more kills than the opposing team. The objective of the game mode only reinforces one of the primary mentalities of competitive gaming; Maximizing potential gain by minimizing threat. Once a team has the lead it is most advantageous to find a nice defensive position and hold its advantage until the timer runs out.

Honestly there is no point in arguing about this now. Why don;t we wait until the tourney and see what the winning strategies are.

Edit: Q: can we change mech midmatch whilst still respecting the rules?

I had been talking to a few people personally about doing it but I think I'm going to update the OP, open roll call to all commentators, lets see what you've got. PM me if you're interested in commentating!

This is perfectly acceptable as long as you do not swap to a mech already on the field. Say you have a tech raider brawler out and you as a Brawler die, you may not load into a tech or a raider, all other mech options are yours to choose
