Ignia already has a large score difference compared to the other two teams, it kind of makes it feels like the other teams will give up eventually because "Everyone will get the same buff and rewards anyways", if I could think of ways to motivate the other teams, maybe we could do lesser amount of rewards for 2nd and 3rd place. ( For example, 2,500 guild coins for 1st place, 2,000 for 2nd and 1,500 for 3rd) It's still alot, but at least I think it still motivates people to push through for their team. It will also make this whole team system more relevant.
If teams are randomly assigned, it might be a problem because what if one team has more of the stronger players, and the other team doesn't have much strong players as compared? That itself can also lead to a disadvantage, unless we have a way to balance the players between numbers and strength, but that is technically impossible to do.
I think having the Event Team Suggestion thread for us to suggest team names would be a good idea, at least it fits more to the community.
Honestly, I am more concerned about the voting, with larger amount of people, that also means more different opinions on what should be chosen because of each players individual needs, at least with discussions going on, we can easily agree as a whole with what majority wants. There's been quite a few disagreements on the server buffs from what I have seen.
