    If the goal is to have people play more matches, then a groupstage format should be made.

    It is also up to the community request what they like to see.

    It could be an idea to make a groupstage followed by 8 teams playoff (f.e. 4 divisions, top 2 of every division go through), and in the meantime have a "onenightcup" every x time.

    It's all possible as long as we will have enough teams up for this, for example for a onenightcup you need at least 8 teams at an evening, and for such a groupstage it's best to have at least 20 teams.

    All below options are based on football competitions.

    1) Champions League format:
    - 32 teams
    - 8 groups with 4 teams per group
    - every team play once with different team on two maps
    - 3 points for map win, 1 point for map draw
    - then 2 teams from all of the groups get promotion to play-off stage (16 teams)
    - play-off stage is based on Bye system, without loser bracket. It gives us: 1/16, 1/8, 1/4/ 1/2, grand final

    2) European Champions format (old formula)
    - the same set as above, but 16 not 32 teams.
    - 4 groups with 4 teams in every group
    - 3 points for 2 maps win , 1 point if 1 map win
    - 2 teams from every group get promotion to play-offs (8 teams)
    - 1/4, 1/2, grand final

    3) League format
    - 20 teams
    - every team play once with different team on two maps
    - 3 points for map win, 1 point for map draw
    - every team playes 19 matches
    - at the end the winner is the team who collect the biggest number of points

    4) Old Europa League formula
    - 32 or more teams
    - only play-offs without loser bracket

    5) current spring cup formula

    We have really much options, let's try different things instead of boring cup system only, with useless losers bracket which only makes the cup longer.

    That all leads to one thing: more teams.

    Over 1.4k Golden Hawkeyes.

    Is there any interest in one/two day tournaments with buy-ins?
    I know that leagues with entry fees would not be taken well as some teams know they aren't going to win first, but they still want to compete for fun and practice because it brings more the the game than pubs. I think that having small tournaments with monetary incentives might give the top tier teams a reason to come back though. Right now with there isn't much incentive to play comp and it's a hassle to get everyone on at a set time; however being able to actually win something many bring more interest into the game.

    That and if anyone wants to do cheap BO3 pick up games I'm down. Have paypal though.
