    Yeah, it's not that serious, but it would still be much easier to organise if we did 1v1s. I'd be fine with 2v2 though if it ends up working better

    I say we do 2v2's and everyone that signs up just calls their playstyle

    1v1 is easier, much easier to pair people up while taking latency into account. Not too bothered either way. Not sure what there is to call in 2s anyway. You should be playing with a proper rotation whether it's 2s or 3s. None of this "sit in the goal the whole game" nonsense :hateit:.

    Other thing with 2s is balance. It's just for fun, but you still want the teams to be fairly balanced if possible. It won't be fun for anyone if there are massive skill imbalances between teams. So that will have to be sorted as well.

    I'm fine with either though, 1s is just easier to organise.

    Last time I checked, Xbox One added cross play between PC; however, it obviously can't cross play between PS4.
    This will be an issue if we have a player that's on PS4 and another player that's on Xbox One, as they wouldn't be able to play with each other.

    Doesn't even work if a PC player is hosting the lobby, first player would join fine, but then the second player (from the other console) wouldn't be able to join.

    That should be everyone that plays/shows interest? So that leaves us with odd numbers for all countries besides EU on its own (Canada works evenly, if Xbox can cross play PC). We could do 1v1 best of 3, or just 1v1 single match, versus everyone in the respective area bracket, and the winner moves on to face the winner for the other country bracket? That gives us decent connections for the first few matches, and mediocre ping in the last few matches.

    Xbox One can cross play with PC, so we should be fine on that regard. It'll only be an issue once/if he goes against a PS4 player.

    Yeah! Just hit up the person you're up against, be it in the thread, discord, PM, whatever, and find a good time that you can both play! Then once you're done, report back to the thread and say who won.
