    Is this like an official tournament sponsored by the Devs?

    If so, would the winners be given some sort of special icon by their gamer-tag/handle?

    In other words, what are the rewards? If it's just bragging rights I'm alright with that.

    Also, might I suggest posting the winners of every tournament on this site as well? It'd definitely hype things up.
    EDIT:
    Oh, and a highlight reel too!

    @LWOF_BrOkenArrow We are working on placement awards, and looking at the possibilities. The first tournament, may be just for bragging rights, but as the community forms and grows, better systems will be in place.

    Also we will also be putting a weekly newsletter in production once things get rolling. This newsletter will include things like Tournament winners, team spotlights, video spotlight, etc. You can sign up for that at our website. battlegrounds.gg

    Yes and yes. I got approval to give achievements for tournament winners, but the team wants to see some success first. So maybe the first few tournaments are the "preseason" or something, but with enough interest and traffic that I can use to convince the team to do the achievements (and other stuff we think of).

    Just out of curiosity, I see you have Max Revives: 1 as a setting.

    Does this mean you have the ability to edit that setting?

    Yes, in private lobbies.

    Hmm... I guess my next question is to ask why someone would choose to have revives in competitive play.

    Revives aren't much of a concern in this game. It's pretty risky to revive a person, especially when they're in an entirely different area of the map or are out in the open. Not to mention you can simply secure a guy to prevent them from being revived. And if you do get revived you're only going to have about 1/3-1/4 of your health...
    One way I look at it, is that they allow a losing team to regain a fighting chance if they lose two of their guys early in a round. Also keep in mind that it makes things fair in objectives like Escort where if the VIP is neutralized, the round is lost. No revives means that the person who's VIP has to be even more careful and becomes more of a liability.

    That's up to the tournament organizers. :3

    VIP mode shouldn't be used for matches. Extract or C4, sure. Having revives in competitive play is just silly.

    It's a trial for them to see if it works out, and it's PS4 so they always have different rules.

    PS: Gratz on getting 16 teams into it.
    Steam - YouTube - Twitch

    Prepare for change, we got aaHollywood back on the range.
