OCE Needs More / Competitive Scene

Hope you can read cause this is messy \/ \/ \/ \/

Edit:
Tuesdays / Thursdays are a horrible time for big tournaments, if anyone does sports in their life its most likely those times, doubt its just myself.

Rocket Leagues OCE competitive scene has been dying out lately, and I feel how its handled is the biggest influence on how it is and how it will be shaped. I'm not saying make a free tournament with real prize money, but other / new things should definitely be considered.


There is a league match, and a 'big one' tournament throughout the week, honestly for me and my team we can only ever look forwards to the big one as its our ONLY chance to crack into the AU power rankings as well as playing high level teams, and numbers have just been lowering as weeks go by, last few weeks teams have been begging others to make up the numbers for these tournaments to go ahead.


Power Rankings are a big deal to teams and the only things they're looking at is the 'big one' and the ladder games, for lower teams that would love to make their mark don't have much of a chance. Yeah you may be looking at some of the smaller tournaments but who from CGI enters them, either CGI teams are afraid to lose their rank on power rankings and they know their ranking wont be affected if they don't enter anything, or there isn't any prize worth entering for, and don't get me wrong no prized tournaments are boring for myself and are usually for smaller teams to have an experience.


My suggestions would be perhaps make 1 - 2 other sister tournaments to the big one throughout the week, make them perhaps $2 - $3 entry with $60 real prize money (best $2 and force 10 teams to join). Everyone would be extremely satisfied knowing they could win $15-$20 2 days of the week with such little money on the line, its cheap for smaller teams to come and attempt making their mark against the bigger teams which is a major part as they wouldn't have a chance otherwise unless they're prepared to throw away $5. Its going to give us more competitive tournaments that OCE lacks extremely as Cyber Gamer is the only known Rocket League tournament host.


We almost need this, you see US tournaments going on every day, they're a bigger region but we can atleast fit in perhaps 1-2 extras, its what is most fun about rocket league in my personal opinion at the moment, and having only 1 real competitive night that may end in 2 games if it even goes through, its just so sad and leaves a rusty taste for a whole week for the next tournament.


I brought up power ranking before because I've noticed and I'm honestly not mad about this but its setting a bad example. My team managed to break CGI, we were ready for the 'Big One' on Tuesday 10th November to make our mark, it didn't end up going ahead. The CGI team below us didn't bother entering that 'Big One' or were perhaps busy, we went ahead and won our league match 3-1 that week, the team below us lost 3-2 to currently the best OCE team, they've gone up 2 ranks, we've dropped 1. Power Rankings is what my team and I'm sure a lot of others below the CGI league are working towards, we make the effort and spend the money to attempt breaking to the top, and if it doesn't go ahead which means not all CGI teams have joined, we don't even get a chance and drop. Atleast with more tournaments you cant use the excuse 'off day' to an upset.


OCE rocket league community is very inactive and I'm unsure if this'll help or if I'm just acting like a complete idiot but pleaseee more competitive tournaments in some way or the other.


Little tired at the moment so excuse the jumbled paragraphs, I hope you get the main point even if half of what I've said sounds like crap, even if it all sounded like crap that's just my suggestion, anything else as long as its more would be great.


Thanks if you have gone through it all, again apologies for how scrappy its been written but it is what it is.
