Two ressurections modes needed

Patch: Game played in resurrection mode don't award SPP and gold anymore.

I agree that there should be this option for a leauge, but there should be both. A resurrection mode that also award SPP and gold. So two resurrection modes.

The official championships should run without kick off events, kick off events just add randomness and reduce the effect of player skill. I understand you asked comments like this by adding this option... it was good you added it, but now implement it in the championships...

Hi, you can already separately disable the kick off event in a competition, in the competition options.

Official championships cannot be run without them, as it would make them much less official. Kick off events are used at BB tournaments in TT, including World Cup. The randomness factor is here partly because dealing with randomness and bad odds is considered a part of any couch's skillset, partly because it's the nature of BB, there is no fairness. Some teams benefit from certain events more (like Blitz! is much more useful for fast/agile teams), so it plays role in balancing bash and agile teams.

Afaik, Rez format is used IRL mainly because BB is not a cyber-sport (yet?), so most of those who participate in champs do this, heavily, for the thrill and to be a part of it, not only to win the prize.

So if in the world of pro-DoTa your opponent bailed from the tournament and was disqualified, it may be a good thing, from your perspective (an easy win), in the reality of TT BB it means you traveled many miles (sometimes overseas) to participate in some IRL BB madness, and some of those who you had to play according to schedule (no MM there), got their teams destroyed before they had appointments with you. So you paid a lot of money and got less BB fun than you expected. They don't have such huge prizes at BB champs so you could forget about everything else except winning the event 😉 Money-wise, it isn't worth abroad travel.
