740 was a unique and progressive battle format used for official tournaments and competitions before Update 114 - the rebalance.
This format derives its name from its most important rule: the team must not have more than a total of 740hp at one time. This made from some interesting combinations but ideally, a set of two Vikings and four Hornets was chosen. Railgun was the obvious choice from the turrets.
There were some other formalities to the format as well:
- On all maps, team player cap should not exceed 6v6.
- Supplies are prohibited.
- Friendly-fire is disabled.
The famous General Tanks clan experimented with the format. Particularly, a set up of three Vikings and a sole Hunter was used, along with the induction of Isida (in official battles as well). Smoky was also an active choice.
