Meanwhile, during my (very) lated... monthly update, two new events finished in April.
So congratulation time! :D

23. AWP World Tour - Masters 1000 - China
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21130
Congratulation to MoD for his first major event win! :D (this was his 5th (!) event wins btw)
So MoD repelled Wini's attack for the 4th place now, but to be continued :D
Wini's performance on the Masters is incredible so far!
1 Win, 2 Finals, 1 Quarter Final! (so he reached finals in ALL of the 4 Masters so far)!
Big congratulations to Milly and Treehorn as well, very well performance too!
Milly likely will be back to the TOP10 with this result.

Here are the TOP16:




35. AWP World Tour - 250 Series - Malvia
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=22175
Very big congratulations to Edge for his first Tour event win!
It was likely after his very much finals (I wrote about it in one of my earlier anaylizing post)
Congrats to Swisster too for his first final.
They two did an excellent performances, especially if we check who are behind them in this tourney ;)

Here are the TOP16:

You are welcome Edge!
I am interested to see as well what to expect about Rankings, so I made my monthly ongoing events analysis, based on the state of yesterday morning. Here are the updated google docs:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Ao0SlM6Kv6CE1-Ha5mBIrI6nj4Uft2lMaE25qbXxWHs/pub?gid=648212339&output=html

I collected the present finals (F, SF, QF) positions from the ongoing events (+ the China Masters won by MoD, and the Malvia 250 Series won by Edge), so here are the players with 2 or more finals (the + means still in the event):
  • 6
    MoD (1W, 1F+, 1SF, 1QF+, 2QF)
  • 4
    Edge (1W, 1F+, 1SF, 1QF)
    Panagiotis (1F+, 1SF+, 1QF+, 1QF)
    Wini (1F, 1SF, 1QF+, 1QF)
    Timinator (1F+, 3QF)
    Jackie Treehorn (2SF, 2QF)
    rakleader (1SF, 1QF+, 2QF)
    ACL Tears (1F+, 1SF+, 1QF+, 1QF)
  • 3
    MIFRAN (1F+, 2SF)
    ps (3 QF)
    Doron Hoh (1SF+, 2QF)
  • 2
    dry-clean-only (1F+, 1QF)
    Hunta (1SF+, 1QF)
    Ollie (2F+)
    malakkan (1SF, 1QF+)
    culpa (1SF, 1QF)
    ANT (2QF+)
    Muli (2QF)
    Rento (2SF+)
Additionally I collected all present major events and QF+ small events point status for the TOP20 + players above, and here are the Rankings based on those present minimum points (in the brackets the possible maximum points but only from majors):



As you can see, counting the ongoing events, Pana still has got a nice (actually higher) point lead.
Interesting, but all the Big Four already out from the Battle Islands V Masters :O MoD already out from the Guiroma Masters too, but the other three still in, so the fight in the TOP3 is very close!
MoD, after he won his first Masters, is closer to them, but as I wrote, he is already out from all the running majors, so his only hope (for the takeover) the coming MA Grand Slam event ;)

Additional interesting stuff, that seems Buns started to play only in the important events, which means the majors (Grand Slam and Masters). Logical step in Rankings point of view, because the best six results of the Big Four already very high, the only possibility them for bigger additional points from this section is winning 500 Series events. So I would do the same than Buns, but join to the 500 Series events as well (and those new results will be good as well when the old results start to expire!)

Wini, build on his excellent Masters performance so far, getting closer and closer to the Big Four, although he lost the important Masters final againts MoD.

Milly seems will come back to the TOP10, and join to the illustrious group of rakleader, ANT and Hades (although reakleader has got the biggest potential (regarding present and possible maximum points) among them to reach the Big Four in the near future)

FlyingBender's falling continues :(((((
I hope that he will be able to solve all obstacles and can start again the focused play on the Tour ;)

Unfortunatelly I don't have more time to continue the analysis :(
Only one more thing. Timinator still couldn't get his first Tour event win, what means (for me) the avarage field of the Tour is quite strong :D

Could you limit it so that players can only compete in 1 tournament of any size at once, I skimmed the rules so you might already do this.

New event finished, so congrats time :D

31. AWP World Tour - 500 Series - GME III
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21836
A very huge congratulation to MoD for his 6th (!) Tour event win!
This performance is marvellous! I think his base play level is one of the highest, however, seems that he has problems when he should raise this base level and should play in a more focused way? (regarding his missing (compared to his other results leastwise :P ) major results) Who knows :D
Congrats to Edge as well for his second final in a short time.
And congrats to malakkan and culpa too.

Here are the TOP16:



Just for fun, I checked what the rankings is if we consider only the smaller events with the best six results limit. Here are the TOP10 of this virtual Rankings:



Edit: this list is without the two event finished in this month, but no time to update it now :|
Edit2: MoD has got now 1930, and Edge is the TOP10 too with 755 points :D

Congrats to dry-clean-only for his first Tour event win!
With this win he will be in TOP50 sure (so one Wild Card released for others :D )
Congrats to ACL Tears as well for his first Final (after one QF and SF).
And congrats to BigMack for his first SF, and Buns too (although no points counted for him, because his already many best six finals :P )

Here are the TOP16:



32. AWP World Tour - 250 Series - Sri Lanka

Congrats to MIFRAN for his 5th (!) Tour event wins!
With this win he will get 160 additional points, and likely will regain the second position, but (far) not enough for the first one.
Congrats to JV for hist first Final (it took a long time :P ), and likely will be in TOP50 too (so again a released Wild Card :D ).
Congrats to Jackie and Edge as well, they performances recently are very impressive!

Congrats to Nynwhen for his first final!
Congrats to Rodolfo and Rento for their first semifinals!

The last Challenger were finished too.
Reminder: no Tour points for these Challengers, but the TOP4 win Wild Cards (=Monday invitations) to any Tour events. The winner won 4 Wild Cards, the 2nd won 2 Wild Cards, and the two semifinalists won 1 Wild Card. Just write me (PM or any Tour topic) in which events want to use them.

Besides these new result announcements, I would like to write a few words about the templates, especially in the "Clay season".

You can read more about the Tour templates here:
https://www.warlight.net/Forum/203213-awp-world-tour-templates

And about the different Tour seasons (and other concepts) in my 5th post.
I tried to translate the tennis surface into the Warlight AWP World Tour.
So the SR templates will be the Hard courts (the most tennis courts are hard)
The WR templates will be the Grass courts (the luck is the Grass factor :) )
Finally, the Clay courts will be the templates with extra settings (like LD, MA, Commanders, LFD, no split, not normal fogs, kill rates, bonuses, etc.)
This is the grouping method (G-Grass, H-Hard, C-Clay) in the previous post too.

On the ATP World Tour there are seasons, like Clay, Grass seasons.
My plan (if the majority can accept it :) ), there will be seasons in AWP World Tour too.
  • After the Guiroma Masters (first week of March) until the Poland Masters (first week of June) will be the "Clay" season (using templates with extra settings).
    It means three major and three 500 Series events, plus (depends on the Mondays in the given year) seven 250 Series events (25% of the Tour events)
  • After the Poland Masters (first week of June) until before the Treasure Map Masters (the last week of July) will be the "Grass" season (using WR templates).
    It means one major and two 500 Series events, plus (depends on the Mondays in the given year) five 250 Series events (15% of the Tour events)
  • From the Treasure Map Masters (first week of August) until the Guiroma Masters (first week of March) will be the "Hard" season (using SR templates).
    It means eight major and seven 500 Series events, plus (depends on the Mondays in the given year) sixteen 250 Series events (60% of the Tour events)
Many of you probably noticed, that recently I create Tour events in row with weird settings.
Well, this is because we are in the "Clay season" ;)

I should have written this here earlier (before the "Clay season" started...) but I have a slight backlogs in the Tour administration tasks :|
But better late than never, so here are the templates in the present and the next "Clay seasons":

Here are the current one:
And here are the next one:
(of course if there will be a (some) new popular template(s) this can be changed in the future)
I (helped by a Template Panel) chose these templates because they cover almost all special settings!
  • MA
    Snow Mountain MA, Battle Islands V - MA
  • LD
    Turkey LD, Greece II - auto LD
  • Commanders
    Strategic Commanders
  • No-Split
    Macedonia
  • Kill rates
    Fast Earth
  • Extra armies
    French Brawl
  • Army Cap
    Georgia
  • Fog Level
    Macedonia (Dense), Greece II - auto LD (Light), French Brawl (Light)
  • Distribution
    Greece II - auto LD (automatic), Sumo (automatic), Great Lakes (LFD) and more other dist. combinations
  • Weird maps (bonuses)
    Poland, Elitist Africa, Sumo
  • Cards
    OP, OD, Diplo, Airlift, Sanction, Emergency blockade, Blockade, Reinf., Gift, Recon, Bomb, No Cards
    Only the Spy and Surveillance cards weren't used in any templates above
I hope that you will enjoy the 13 weeks during the "Clay seasons" as well (I will make separate summaries, statistics about these "Clay seasons" btw. Who will be Nadal in Warlight? :D)

@psykkoman
Thank you very much for your template proposal!
(And would very welcome from anybody else if you give your template suggestions here or in any other way (e.g. PM) anytime in the future!)

Although, this template "was discussed" in the Template Panel, and seems it is "terrible" :O
Btw, as I wrote, almost all the card will be used in the templates of the "Clay season", so I can accept that won't be a template with many cards (anyway, I like a lot the many card templates, this tourney was one of my favourites for example: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=4456)

@Ollie
Hehe, Dunga reborned in Hungary, with a much weaker English :/
Another difference between us, that I would easy beat Qi in that game :D :P

Jokes aside, it was a very cool idea, 1 year before I join to this magnificient game, Warlight :)
(and he seems was obsessed of the competitions just like me :D)
Anyway, there was another ATP World Tour clone, the WSOW by Ineffable
https://www.warlight.net/Forum/65257-wsow-season-1-summery

In that time, I didn't adore the tennis yet, so I have no idea that system is based on the ATP World Tour, I just simple enjoy it (until the evil ChrisCMU broke my dreams :P :D )
Oh man, those good old days... when I still had enough motivation fuel for the competitive play :|

Ok, coming back to the present, Ollie, join to the Tour events more :P

I was worried you were going to write something like that :(
But I can fully understand it (same shoes :/ )

Anyway, if you will have a little more time, don't forget, to conquer the Rankings, you don't need to play in all the 50 events! If you play only the 12 monthly major events plus 6-12 500 Series events (which means only 18-24 single elimination tournament during a year), you will get good chance to reach very close to your best possible yearly result (because only about 500 additional points possible for a good player if he/she plays in all 250 Series events (and not only in the 12 major and 12 500 Series events)).

But if you won't have time for these 18(-24) tournements during a year at all, don't forget, to join 1-1 random Tour event (with your favourite template) still is fun and a good challenge (because the strong avarage field on the Tour) ;)

Two new events finished during my turtle update work... so my favorite part is now, the congrats time :D

25. AWP World Tour - 500 Series - Red Dead Redemption
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21243
Congratulation to ACL Tears for his first Tour event win!
With the earned 490 points, he will be raise about 10 positions (26th->16th).
I think, we will find him in the TOP10 soon!
Congrats to Ollie as well, for his first Final, after a QF and SF. So now only missing the event Win from the row, but lets see the next finished event :D

Here are the TOP16:



28. AWP World Tour - 500 Series - Post-Melt Antarctica
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=21435
Congratulation to Ollie for his first Tour event win!
With the scored 800 points from these two 500 Series events, he will be in the TOP20, but this is irrelevant in his case, because he (just like Quicksilver or Sultan for example) play on the Tour only occasionally, and miss many "mandatory" major events. But no any problem with it, because the Rankings only an additional fun factor of the Tour, playing in and winning a single Tour event still very fun ;)
Congrats to Timinator for his second 500 Series Final. Soon or later his first Tour event win will arrive, I am sure ;)

Here are the TOP16:



With these two late finished events, the 2016 Tour year finished.
I wanted to do a separate google docs only for all 2016 events (included all smaller event results, not only the best six), but now (because many 2017 Tour events finished earlier and updated into the google docs) it would mean many additional manual work :|
So postponed. Or if there is a volunteer for this nice work :D

I made my monthly ongoing events analysis, based on the state of yesterday morning.
Here are the updated google docs:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Ao0SlM6Kv6CE1-Ha5mBIrI6nj4Uft2lMaE25qbXxWHs/pub?gid=648212339&output=html

I collected the present finals (F, SF, QF) positions from the ongoing events (+ the Red Dead Redemption 500 Series won by ACL Tears, and the Post-Melt Antarctica 500 Series won by Ollie), so here are the players with 2 or more finals (the + means still in the event):
  • 5
    rakleader (2SF+, 1SF, 1QF+, 1QF)
  • 3
    Pana (1F+, 1SF, 1QF)
    Master Bjarke (1F+, 2QF+)
    Timinator (1F, 1SF+, 1QF)
    Doron Hoh (1SF+, 2QF)
  • 2
    Ollie (1W, 1F)
    ACL Tears (1W, 1QF+)
    Pardon99 (1F+, 1SF)
    Jackie Treehorn (1SF+, 1QF)
    MoD (1SF, 1QF+)
    MIFRAN (1SF, 1QF+)
    Hades (1SF, 1QF)
Additionally I collected all present major events (except fresh started French Brawl) and QF+ small events point status for the TOP20 + players above, and here are the Rankings based on those present minimum points (in the brackets the possible maximum points but only from majors):



After Pana booted all of his ongoing Tour games, still in a good position :O
And a fresh news, that seems Pana will play on the Grand Slam events and some of the Masters too.
We will see how he can manage his Tour Ranking in this semiretired state :D

Ollie has got the best not counted points (800), but not Ranking relevant, because his occasionally Tour play (although still nice performance, congrats again! ;) )

Rankings point in view, rakleader the "winner" of this analysis. He has 5 finals and 765 not counted points. He gained on Wini and the TOP5. And he has got good positions (SF+ and QF+) in the two running Masters (his every new win will mean many points)! So we have a new Big Four pretender besides Wini :D

ACL Tears has a nice 715 not count points too! This means +14 positions for him. And he is in good position in the Battle Island Masters, and still in the MA Grand Slam, so good chance to reach the TOP10 soon!

Hades is in +2 positions, and gained on ANT with his +455 points.
Timinator is in +8 positions with +510 points.

The fight for the TOP10 is harder and harder :O

FlyingBender sank -1 position again, but finally start to gain points at least ;)

Master Bjarke is in +19 positions (with +560 points!) and very near to the TOP20. And he has good potential (still in Guirome Masters and the MA Grand Slam) so a new pretender coming :D

And Doron Hoh (+495 points) and Pardon99 (+480 points) are coming too!

I love to see those so many possible pretenders :D
Although not like that the Big Four seems slowed down a bit :P

  • Q0: What is this tournament series, called AWP?

      First of all, I would like to clarify a misunderstanding.

      The AWP is not the name of this series, but the name of the "organization" which organizes this community event. You can read more about AWP here (skip the off-topic part ;) ):
      https://www.warlight.net/Forum/156041-awp-association-warlight-professionals

      The right name of this series is AWP World Tour. Or World Tour.
      Or simple this: The Tour.


      And this is only one of the community events which organized by AWP.
      Ok, actually the only one, but will be more :P


  • Q1: Ok, so what is this tournament series, called AWP World Tour?



  • Q2: I don't have enough patience to understand how the whole system works… but I love the Rankings, and I feel I am strong enough to conquer it!
    What should I do for this?


      Ok, then let me to be your agent :)

      My advice depends on your freetime.

      • If you have a lot of time for playing Warlight
        Then my answer is simple, join to all the 50 events per year, and do your best. That's all.
        But one more thing.
        The Tour events are filling relatively quickly (6-24 hours) so you will need a fast join skill ;)

        The invitations are sending out on every Wednesday between 04:00-06:00 am CET, so you should online and check invitations on these days.
        Other possibility that you receive a Wild Card, which only mean Monday morning (CET) invitations instead of the Wednesday ones, so you have +2 days for joining.
        If you were very good in other community events, you will receive Wild Cards immediately for sure. Or if you are good on The Tour, you will get as well, after a time. Or you can simple request one if you can convince me ;)

      • If you have limited time for playing Warlight
        Then you should try to follow this event joining order (Rankings point of view):

        • Join to the four Grand Slams per year (first week of January, April, July, October)
          Simple because 8000 of the maximum 19000 points are come from these four events!
        • Join to the eight Masters 1000 events per year (first week of the rest 8 months)
          8000 of the maximum 19000 points are come from these 8 events.

        These 12 Tour events called major events. Or "mandatory" events (only Rankings point of view of course, and only because 16000 of the maximum 19000 points are come from these events!)

        And very important, that all the 12 event results above will be counted, but only the best 6 of 38 results will be counted from events below!

        • Join to the twelve 500 Series events per year (third week of every months)
          You can get max. 3000 of the 19000 maximum points from these events (if you win 6 of the 12 events). And a result from this section only counted if better than your 250 Series best six results.
        • Joint to the twentysix 250 Series events per year (the rest weeks)
          You can get max. 1500 of the 19000 maximum points from these events (if you win 6 of the 26 events). And a result from this section only counted if better than your 500 Series best six results.

        Summary:
        Join to all the 12 major events. Try to join as many 500 Series events as you can. Join to the 250 Series events only if you very like the template or have enough time ;)

    • Q3: I don't have enough time to play even 12 single elimination tournaments per year, so I have no chance for good Rankings at all. /OR/ I think this Rankings is not correct. /OR/ I don't like any Rankings. /OR/ any other Rankings problems.
      Would you mind if I don't play on any Tour events at all because of this?


        Yes! :D

        Jokes aside, the Rankings is "only" an additional fun factor on the Tour.
        I think enough fun and a nice challenge to win a simple Tour event. Harder challenge (= better fun) try to win more than one Tour event (just check how few players can do this during 34 events! :O ) Or win a major Tour events (where your opponents usually play more focused way) is a hard one too.
        But simple playing againts good opponents in different templates forwarding in the brackets is very fun itself imo.

        So if you are in this situation then simple ignore the Rankings, but please don't ignore the whole Tour ;)

        Preferably check the Tour schedule here:
        https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Ao0SlM6Kv6CE1-Ha5mBIrI6nj4Uft2lMaE25qbXxWHs/pub?gid=648212339&output=html
        and you can choose one or more Tour events one year forward (templates will be updated soon) which you are interested in.
        Then you just write me a message (PM or in any AWP topic) and I will invite you, even giving you a Wild Card if you were good in any other community events, so you will be as a guest star on the Tour ;)


    • Q4: How can I join to the Tour?

        I invite players to the Tour events based on my Invite list, which exaclty means my Friend list in Warlight.

        If you want to join to the Tour, you just simple have to write a short message to me (PM or in any AWP topic) and I will add you to my Invite list (=Friend list).
        After this, you will be invited to every Tour events!
        So if you want only get invitations to one or more exact but not to all events, write this request as well.

        There is a Tour event in every week.
        The invitations are sent on every Wednesday between 04:00-06:00 am CET.

        Except for the TOP100 (in case of major events) or TOP50 (in case of smaller events) and the Wild Carded players (40 players in major or 20 players in smaller events), because these 140 or 70 players will be invited on Monday mornings (+ 2 days for joining). These two additional days is an advance because the Tour events are filling relatively quickly (6-24 hours).
        If you were very good in other community events, you will receive Wild Cards immediately for sure. Or if you are good on The Tour, you will get as well, after a time. Or you can simple request one if you can convince me ;)


    • Q5: Hey, I never join to the Tour, nonetheless I am receiving your Tour event invitations, how?

        First of all I would like to say sorry if I am bothering you this way, and just write a short message to me (PM or in any AWP topic) and I will immediate remove you from my Invite list.

        In the beginning, for promotional purposes, I added all players from the better clans to my Invite list. And time to time, I update my Invite list with the new clan members of those clans. So this is how you've been part of the invitees. And sorry again, but I had no better idea for promotion :|

        Anyway, I plan to clean my Invite list soon (remove alts, inactive players, and not Tour oriented active players) but until then you can unsubscribe from the Tour anytime.


    • Q6: How can I unsubscribe from the Tour?

        You just simple have to write a short message to me (PM or in any AWP topic) and I will remove you from my Invite list.

        If you still want to be invited to one or more exact but not to all events, write this request as well.

        Of course, you can rejoin to the Tour anytime if you change your mind.
    To be continued.
