This thread is to discuss TW-CHAMP w.90
Yeah but what i was saying is that only someone who is frontline would be 'shown' because of the bias in the test itself, sure it possible to go to the frontline but simply not being there doesn't somehow diminish skillIf one truly wants to be on the frontlines, then its not really that hard to get there. Ask leadership/noble a few barbs/ask to swap vills with someone. Many ways to get there.
And the TW-Champ is supposed to be about what you have done in the world (w90 this case). Not what you have done in previous worlds.
You do realise then that only frontline players predominantly will be able to 'show what they've done on the world.' Completely neglects backline players who aren't in such a position, furthermore, anything such players do will only be known by their own tribe predominantly.
Ergo its likely that one could choose players based on critically evaluating them, so the next best thing will always be 'ego'.
So shows bias makes this unfortunately useless for this world?For a large part, these things are just popularity contests. More of a poll of how many players of each tribe post on the forum rather than accurate reflection of the skill matchup between two players.
For the most part, you are obligated to vote for your own either due to loyalty or the fact you know less about the opponent, which makes almost all vote slips useless.
TEA votes when TEA member is on the ballot against a non-TEA member: 25-3
BiP votes when BiP member is on the ballot against a non-BiP member: 13-0
Infamy votes when Infamy is on the ballot against a non-Infamy member: 29-2
BiP's numbers are lower because more teamkills like the likes of Nwaro vs. Venomous Retribution etc. than any other tribe.
You can definitely prove yourself without being on the front lines. Might be a bit harder but it's definitely possible. Wish this had a few more players on the listYeah but what i was saying is that only someone who is frontline would be 'shown' because of the bias in the test itself, sure it possible to go to the frontline but simply not being there doesn't somehow diminish skill
Also you are right that it is supposed to be about what you have done in w90,and who best would know what you've done but your tribemates.
