    The point layout should be so that you can bring at least 50 battleships, and they should increase the arena size too. It's an alliance tournament, it shouldn't be just about the skills of one guy who came up with the 8-10 man gang composition, it should be about the skills of individual fleet pilots too.
    They should also let you bring just 10 if you want!

    To be honest, I think there's something here.

    If the battles are bigger, they're going to be significantly harder to metagame, especially in regards to tactics and fittings. It might also serve to bring the supercap population down a notch if they went through an annual tournament culling. Of course once you introduce supers to the tournament in the presence of BS class vessels... it's silly. I'd rather limit it to one or two carriers and a dread, with a BS support fleet and the rest.

    If the people competing are Alliances, and I assume we mean alliances with-a-capital-A, that is, organizations with significant income and ability, why not have a forum for an epic slugfest that's televised? I can only imagine that most serious FCs would love to take an actual 100 man gang out against another, well organized, and equally equipped 100 man gang and get a good fight out of it.

    The more traditional small-gang-elite-pvp side of eve has its place, even a tournament place, but I think after 9 years it's been done to death. Actually, since doing the massive fleet tournamnt would be logistically challenging for both CCP and the playerbase, it would have to carried out on a much smaller scale. Maybe 16 teams instead of 64. So, fewer matches. Perhaps a more traditional AT could be run along side it, in the way Moto2 runs alongside MotoGP in motorcycle racing.

    Couple of dozen caps too if we are going to do this.. Haven't seen a 100v100 fight NOT include caps in a very very long time.
