Exactly same situation happened on our server Archbishop Lazarus. They were only 7 brackets and to seven winners were added 3 very poor clans. So the situation before rite of exile was : 3/8 people from one clan, 4/8 people from second and 0/8 from third clan. So basically we loose 3 games before rite started. I checked this 3 clans in shadow wars and they send only 2-3 people for it. So no surprise, that they cant find 8 people for rite.
How can you do it better?
- Pickup for rite of exile clans from top 10 leaderboards and don’t choose it from shadow war. Its bigger chance, that this clans will have enough people for rite.
- Or pickup winners of each bracket and add to them top ranked clans registered to shadow wars. Again is better chance for top ranked clans to have people for rite.
- Or merge servers
Another good idea from sports is, that make brackets according clans leaderboard. Like if they are 7 brackets, situation should be :
bracket 1 - top1 clan, top 8 clan, top 15 clan, top 22 clan
bracket 2 - top2 clan, top 9 clan , top 16 clan, top 23 clan
bracket 7 - top 7 clan, top 14 clan, top 21 clan, top 28 clan
Because in some brackets were only poor clans coming to shadow war with 3 people and if they win, then can’t find enough people for rite.
