When you can actually apply optional rules to a PvP scenario, then tournament restrictions will be meaningful, enforceable, and non-negotiable. Rules like "Sudden_Death" (No respawn), "Disable_Placate/Confuse", "Disable_C-Store_Consoles", "Escorts_Only", "VA_Only", "No_Lockbox_Ships", and more.
Better yet, a "Tournament Mode" that automatically applies a set of standard rules to a PvP scenario and puts everybody on a "level" playing field automatically.
In that scenario, there's nothing stopping you from equipping "cheese" except for the fact that it's disabled and you're gimping yourself by doing it.
wow this request is as old as the game. No progress has been made in almost 3 years, and i have no hope that progress will happen, with the same people in charge that have prevented it for 3 years straight.
Happy Premature Snix Day everyone
S1.2 Vm is almost as endemic as it was back then (-the shield disable)
