I was thinking due to failure in the recent tournament, how about this as a suggestion:
1. The max ship level is Rear Admiral level!...............
I like this rules about no p2w, but only one problem for me, i dont have any RA ship, and as i know there are no mirror escorts for feds, so i need to spend 120.000 dilithium to buy Advanced or Patrol escort... Its to much cost for a ship i will use 2-3 matches
One possible way of funding the rewards for prizes is have an entry fee of 1 mill ec per player and split that between the top 3 teams something like 60 30 10 split or other tier'd split depending on finish order
I think placates are too difficult to enforce, and could make it inconvenient for players who don't have ready access to the appropriate alts without them.
That being said, I love the idea of a "S1.2" tournament, but I also want to see the old tournament come back in some form.
I think we all have multiple toons.... picking one and simply REFUSING to level the rep isn't asking all that much. I do have most of my toons to the tier 2 passives... but I do have a couple with out and would be willing to fly them unleveled.
I know enforcing that is next to impossible however... really though considering the heal fests we used to get into with engi cruisers and sci healers... the thought of those guys all having tier 4 shield regen crap is not cool.
