Battleborn Competitive League (Xbox One)

If you search for the club you can accept the invite even if you didnt receive it

good decision on what you did with gear, finally someone who understands the integrity of the game. My only reservation is that you are allowing really unbalanced maps into a competitive setting. If it was just a casual quick match, sure, let people get boxed in to their steps on echelon, or let the imbalance of benedict and other flankers have a playground on monuments…

Great concept, just I would ask that you reconsider why every single tournament and every single reputable private match has been played on overgrowth only. There simply is no reason not to, other than perhaps people complaining it gets boring. But anyone who has ever played a sweaty 5v5 knows it is not boring

The only map I hate on Incursion is Echelon because of the line of sight to the sentry from mid. Monuments is fine and it even favors a more ranged meta since it’s so open. Overgrowth gets boring really fast if it’s the only map you play on… They could always map strike so Echelon would never be played by any sane team and it would alternate between the 2 good maps.

I fully agree that Overgrowth is by far the best Incursion map in the game but I figured I’d leave the option open since while both Monuments and Echelon are far less competitive maps they are not so bad that they are tournament ban worthy.

agreed. Echelon is terrible for obvious reasons. Monuments strikes a heated debate by some very niche players and teams out there. It is bad because of how incredibly strong it makes some characters and playstyles. Incursion was always meant to be a tug of war type of mode with team fights and team skills synergy and coordination. I understand the desire for people to be able to flank up behind teams, backdoor, and do certain tactics that are not the norm. While they all sound fine, they simply are not what a competitive match is about. At least not a competitive match of incursion. Incursion is about coordinating pushes–plain and simple. Not going invis and backdooring the sentry, not just doing anything that can work, but actual earned map position affording you the opportunity to win straight up.

If your team is pushed back into your sentry or spawn the whole game, you do not deserve the right to be able to stealth or fly past the other team and take them away from the position they fought long and hard for the legit way. The legit way is how it is described in spawn: escort minions to the enemy’s sentry to help destroy its shields. Not pick benedict and fly past everyone or bomb a lock on skill a 5 year old could use that hits harder than most ults from spots that are inaccessible to most players.

@InfiniteHench @arcaneredneck I’ve played with both of you guys before. If you need a steady and mildly reliable team mate I’m still available.

I can’t wait to see what this league shows off with teams and the free agents. Hopefully everyone has tons of fun!

my biggest hope would be that the somewhat competitive community participates and as a result stop using legendaries in regular games. That would seriously make me worship the ground you walk on

It looks like we’ll have at least 8 teams, and while I can speak for everyone my team and I stopped using Legendaries forever ago.

@mikem1 I saw you posted something about dominating Meltdown matches with your group in a different topic. I didn’t realize you were on Xbox One, would you and your group like to join the club? I’m going to try and get some regular Meltdown games started at some point and this could be a good place to find people to play.

Thanks for putting this together MahZeeeeeee. We’re in the process of trying to put our team together to join before the deadline. I especially appreciate the flexibility of when to play the games.

7 posts were split to a new topic: Off-Topic (Should be PMs) in Competitive League Thread

That’s good to hear, I was hoping you guys would join as a team but figured you didn’t want to when Rellik and Kamikazi joined as free agents. I hope you guys do get together!

Yea, I think we should be able to figure things out by March 5th. Looking forward to it.

We are engaging in a quick topic clean up, the topic will be reopened momentarily.

Hey everyone.

Just a bit of a reminder.

A thread is supposed to remain on topic, and should very rarely discuss personal matters (especially pertaining to others who may not be present).

While we do understand that the forum is a great way to communicate with other players, please do use the PM function for such instances. When posting in a thread, the posts should be relevant to a larger portion of the community than simply those people directly involved. While, this isn’t necessarily enforced in ‘off-topic’ sections, or occasional tangents, prolonged discussions of a personal matter lead to thread derailment.

Please keep this in mind when posting in the future. Thank you.
