    Offical Elim Announcement - Current Season Ending and New Season Launch

    NEW ELIM SEASON BEGINS FRIDAY JUNE 15th

    Current Elim Season

    - Although the ball was dropped on the "current elim season", we will still make note of it coming to a close at last hahaha
    - The current Elim Season will be coming to an end at the end of this month
    - As of now, the leaders for the WB and JAV division are as follows:

    WB
    1st : Lasenza - 608 Points
    2nd : Ugandan Sniper - 563 Points
    3rd : Sylphie - 483 Points

    JAV
    1st : Soz3 - 457 Points
    2nd : Riksa - 450 Points
    3rd : Commodo - 444 Points

    Awards for Current Season
    1st Place will be awarded $250,000 Pubbux
    2nd Place will be awarded $100,000 Pubbux
    3rd Place will be awarded $50,000 Pubbux

    *Note - These are only the awards for this season, the awards for the new season will be listed further below


    Changes Coming to the New Season
    - Testing of the changes have already begun, and will continue into June
    - The new season will begin in the second half of June
    - Seasons will run 2 months long
    - Only a TWD Registered name will be eligible to obtain points towards climbing the ladder
    - Weekend Game Play: As the season progresses, there will be weekend event type changes brought to Elim. These events will have added rewards for each round. Map changes, mobile flags and fighter ship elims in the base area are just a few with many more to come.
    * If you have any weekend event ideas you'd like to see, email them to Elim@trenchwars.com or pm me in-game!
    - The rating formula has been significantly changed to better represent skill. With this, more variables are taken into account such as how many players active in the round, the rating of said players, kill streaks, ending kill streaks, confidence requirements, and eliminating other players (are just a few). I will follow up this post with a link to the exact formula if there is a demand for it!
    - Confidence - is a variable used by the bot in determining an accurate rating for each player. Once 100% confidence is acquired, players will earn the full amount of points possible per round played. The confidence requirement has been reduced from 1,000 games played to only 75.
    - To prevent players from initially obtaining high ratings and points then quitting the season to maintain their scores, an activity requirement has been put into effect. Each player on the top ladder must be active within the last week of the season, otherwise you will be dropped from the ladder.

    Awards
    - The top performers of each season will be immortalized in the Elim map by having their names placed in the top left corner
    - The winners of each season will have metals next to their names on the websites
    - 1st place will win $1,000,000 Pubbux
    2nd place will win $500,000 Pubbux
    3rd place will win $250,000 Pubbux
    - The base amount awarded per win has been increased, will the ability to earn even more by eliminating other players, kill streaks, and by killing enemies with higher ratings
    *Note - the base amount awarded per round varies by how many people are active in the round


    We still have some time before the season officially launches, so additional thoughts, comments, and ideas are always welcomed!

    Maybe on Sunday run brackets or progressive team deathmatch with each round splitting the remaining players into two teams till one player is left. I doubt anyone wants to play some new gamestyle with flags so keep it simple with regular elim/duel style events.

    It would not be a new game style with flags, but more of a mobile ball / flag concept where additional points / pubbux are earned while you are in possession, and once you die it gets reset randomly in the map. Everything else remains the same - no teaming, die x amount of times and you are eliminated.

    You will never get competitive active eliming unless you split elim and baseelim again, I went down this route about a year ago or maybe two, you will never get consistancy while the two are togethor. And last I checked nobody could be bothered to split them.
    Best of luck with it and let me know if you need any help MS.

    I agree with Attacks, but for a different reason. When I log in and go to elim, I want to play jav elim, never wb elim. The wait time for a jav round is unknown because it's vote-based. Split arenas would let everyone get straight into a game of their chosen type. But... I do have genuine concern about splitting the few remaining players between arenas. I'd still do it though.

    I can see both points by you and Attacks, and have thought about these same issues as well. Personally I think it could go either way, which is still some risk. Perhaps we can try the split arenas as a weekend mashup and see how the crowd likes it? I obviously would like to please all parties here, but not at the risk of having less people playing in total versus a few ppl playing a round or two of the ship they wouldn't normally play.

    Another idea is to just provide the arenas:

    elim (unchanged)
    elimjavs (always javs)
    elimwbs (always wbs)

    and see which gets used.

    Elim should go back to being warbird only in my opinion. Bring back baseelim for those who want to prance around in jav/lev/spider/ect. like it always was meant to be. Absolutely hated when they combined elim with a bunch of nonsense ships along with voting for which ships to be played. I think keeping them separated is a great idea and one I know I would fully support. Please consider. Thanks.

    There has been decent feedback with regards to this matter. I'm going to try to test it out during a weekend event and see what the crowd overall prefers.

    While I like the idea, I would rather have 1 arena that is active and popular versus 2 arenas that are so so. You know what I mean?

    Seems to work well for wbduel/javduel, don't see how it would affect things negatively. If anything people will be more active and happy to go to the right arena with confidence that the hour or two they have to play SS will be spent in the ship they want, rather than hoping to get the right votes in elim.

    Give me one weekend (not this one im working) of just ?go elim seperate from baseelim and I bet you I could get a consistant base for warbird in peak times . Get 24/tiny/rab to pump baseelim and im sure they could do the same.
    Elim is so important for trench wars, its the only Inclusive warbird/jav event that new players can mingle with better players.
    Elim is the only place that players can pick up and play without faffing with captains, getting warped to base or hoping their squad mates or another squad to play is online.
    Elim is the only place where people can get a little famous for actually playing well and winning something.

    If I had my way i'd close down wbduel and javduel.
    And if you are going to really give this a shot you should pull down wbduel/javduel for a weekend that you trial this.

    Will it save trench wars? Ofc not but it might give people like myself or other vets something to log in for.

    Now elim is a place where you actually could reward activity. Jessup could play 24/7 and get rewarded without driving his team and everybody else to madness.

    Instead, I see we are talking about splitting the arenas while average population in merged elim is 4 (including bots). It has gone back and forth in recent years nothing has really worked. Imho, we are setting focus on completely wrong things in most of these new triumphs.

    I planned on featuring the split arenas as a weekend event / trial to see which turn out is better. There will be a zoner put out for which weekend it will be, providing plenty of notice. Can always hit me up in game as well for details on upcoming weekend change ups. Granted the weekends will come once the season is underway.

    Side note - I agree with your elim sentiments. Love it here, that is why we're trying to rejuvenate it
