    Anything I can buy at a station is fair game to bring into the fight? Please say yes.

    One engineers modification means i can have one modified weapons, for expample, with incendiary rounds (multicannon) or i can have 2 multicannon with the same modification? i think just one, but anyway need to confirm.

    And other thing, powerplay modules and weapons are allowed?
    no PP mods / weapons
    1 engineer mod PER TEAM. could be 1 weapon, 1 shield booster, 1 shield generator, anything, but just 1

    Since we can take part also in wings of 2 or 3 pilots it shouldn't be a big issue I hope.

    Go Icarus Cup go! This will be grand
    i'm 99% sure you can register less than 8 but 4 minimum

    The clipper is classified as a large ship, which receives the large hull bonus to damage mitigation vs small and medium ships. Having a hulltank clipper skews the balance way off (and would be worth too many points to be considered as part of any team if it was actually in the list).

    The idea behind this competition was to have it limited to small+medium ships only, mostly for balance reasons but also to dictate a fast-paced fight that doesn't take almost an hour to finish
    Courier 4.5 points where???

    Are you shure? Some commanders believe the opposite. I think we need official validation of this...

    *Mod hat off

    Not sure if this has been clarified already but, how will the organizers verify that there is indeed only 1 Engineer´s mod in each team?

    I hear on the grapevine this might not be happening due to lack of sign ups.. Sad I suppose but I hope FD don't misunderstand that. Side point here but you guys at FD HQ haven't exactly made for a PvP friendly sentiment over the years.. Nevertheless, I recognise there is a will and its not gone unnoticed.

    Firstly, the requirement for it being UK only time is one large hurdle put in the way of everyone and by stipulating this all our friends west of the pond, and way south east have been excluded. Secondly, the requirements are a bit stiff. Teams of three (perhaps even two) might be a better option since it opens up things to more. As it stands there is a requirement for 8 in a team, four of which are stand ins..

    So instead of just canning it, if thats whats gonna happen, I suggest a rethink.. Drop the big team requirements, even if we go with four then four is all that is needed right?, and schedule quarters, semi's and finals for the weekend where everyone can get involved (where FD could officiall stream). I presume the reason for the UK timeframe was so FD can stream and promote.

    Lets have the lower round sessions go ahead at a more ad hoc time frame and save the streaming and promos for FD on the weekend. Its fair to say we can simply record each comp to demonstrate who won. It's worth remembering that a PvP comp like this was all organised by players before...

    Everyone wins.. So call time on this and gauge reaction but most of all don't exclude folks from other time zones.

    There should also be a tier of rewards ( those sought after things we put on our dash) and not just for the winner.. Standard would be gold, silver and bronze. I recon that would make for a far more inclusive comp..

    Lets just remove all engineer mods from the equation.. Problem solved no?

    I guess many wait with registration until last minute - waiting for responses from friends and wingmates who acutally are inactive or in holidays. At least thats what I am doing.

    I'm just gonna say yes until Zac says otherwise, it seems to be the confirmation around the control group and Zac has been away for quite a while, we've been trying to reach him to get a 100% confirmation on it but right now it's just 90~%

    team will be able to snapshot your loadout and if anything is modified via specific values in their system more than likely, i just know that they will be able to tell

    We haven't signed yet but we will - but with less than 8 players. For the apply form you need only one player (somebody told me)

    But I heard from others the application service did not send a confirmation mail. Hopefully it's not broken.

    Very true.

    The forum definitely hasn't been kind toward PvP players whatsoever so it's hard to find PvP players paying attention to this forum, but we appreciate the goodwill FD shows by attempting this tournament.

    Definitely loosen the time frame and lower the team size (Don't need four substitutes for four participating players, two is more than enough).

    Have loosely organized and randomized elimination rounds that require only video evidence.

    Reward should not only go to the winner, have recognition rewards for participants and throughout different tiers of the tournament.
