You are welcome!

@{101st} Syphen
Yes, you are in my friend list (=invitation list), you will be invited on Wednesdays until unsubscribe.

-------------------------------

@FSG, Rento
Thank you for clarifying, so you meant Picks/Bans choosing system in general, and not refer to the step order.

It's advantageous to go last because it lets you react to opponent moves and you have less chance of wasting your own moves.
Example: both players love MME. Player A picks MME. Player B can now pick his 2nd favourite template. It's a clear advantage if you know what I mean.

Interesting, but you are right. I mean interesting, because I remember that I read that the first step is better and belong to the higher seeded team in CS:GO. Maybe I read this when not simple 2bans 2picks 2bans was implemented but other step order where really better the first step, I dunno. Because the combination of the steps are endless, only depends on us which one will be used.

The advantage gets bigger as template pool is smaller. In extreme scenario, when 2 players pick 1 template each from a pool of 3, the first player to make a choice has (statistically) a 1-in-3 chance to waste his move by picking the same template his opponent would pick. The second player who makes the final pick out of 2 templates remaining has no chance to waste his move anymore.

Although this is not true imo. I mean here no wasted picks, because the remained template will be used for the decider game (in case of 1-1). Or if you have best of one (bo1) format, then after two bans the remained template will be played. But your previous paragraph is still true (in case of 2bans 2picks 2bans, etc. combination). And your last paragraph is true as well, the situation is very different when you stealing and not forcing things.

Ok, the simplest solution is that the higher seeded player will decide if he wants to be first or second ;)

You need to pay attention to which templates your opponent is good at. Back when the CORP ladder was around, I beat muddleszoom by reading into his quad-pick Partha on Rise of Rome, not the same situation but you can see what I mean.

EDIT:

You can also anti-strategise by looking at your opponents' games on one of their preferred templates, then deliberately leave it open and force your opponent to decide between one of your preferred templates and the one you anti-stratted.

Monthly Tour Race Update - 04/2019
The tables below are based on the status of the 1st of May 2019.


I will open a separated topic for the 2018 Tour Finals so now I am writing only about the new 2019 Tour Race.

A sronk start by a newcomer, Turkish, he won both finished events!
Ok, not really newcomer, because he played on the Tour earlier (9 events, 14-9 record but no any QF or better results on them). so rather a great comeback. Whether will he compete with the Tour elite in a longer term?
Because a few of the Tour elite are already in the top too, malakkan, kicorse and Buns follow Turkish with 100+ points.

Ok, this is only the very beginning of the Race, but it started in 2019 too!
To be continued in the next month, stay tuned! ;)

Good luck and have fun for everybody on the Race!

Hi Lew,

you are already in my invitation list, so you have been invited to the Tour events on every Wednesdays so far.
Maybe you wasn't able to see this, because the smaller events fill up and start very quickly (in a few hours, until about 11 am CET on Wednesday) - but if you have e-mail notifications about tourney invitations you can see those invitations.

Tell me if this time interval (on Wednesdays between about 05:00 am CET and about 11 am CET) is not ok for you (you missed to join) and if you need a Wild Card (= Monday invitations)

Cheers,
Ekstone

I am sorry I was late for updating the future events section :|
Grass season (WR templates) already started with Belarus, and now I updated the rest 7 templates from WR season.

You can find here the updated Magazine section:
https://www.warlight.net/Forum/262655-awp-world-tour-magazine?Offset=4
And I have updated the google docs too (until August):
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vSyqOBen4MBm6dKAVvwfd4NZ_qiUCsvBo8Yyga5hqJvYDKOTt-atuzSqFoaG1u8sDaX441nLA_LObjq/pub?gid=648212339&output=html

Remark: from 2020 British Raj will be Masters event and Cat Fight will be 500 Series event. And won't be time segregated but distributed seasons.

I will update the remained 2019 SR season soon.
And after that I will construct and update the new distributed 2020 season with the new elected templates.

Thank you for your patience.
GL&HF!

We already got used to that if a Tour birthday (on May 30, the Tour was three years old :) ) then a Tour Race final result is coming.
So here is the final result of the 2018 Tour Race with some statistics and records.

  • The TOP25 player from the finished 2018 Tour Race
    (counted only the 2018 events):



    In 2017, Timinator replaced Rak on the throne of the Tour, but in 2018 a new king, Kicorse arrived!
    2018 was clearly Kicorse's year.
    In the beginning, Quicksilver was riding with him in the Race, but then he retired, and the old king, Timinator booted from lot of his games after his autumn vacation. Without these Kicorse still would win the Race imo, but with these he won the Race with a very big point advantage. He holds all the 2018 Tour records except the Most Played Tournaments (see below). And he broke lot of overall Tour records too!
    Long live the new Tour king! :)

  • Here are the full Rankings (including "Results", "Tour records" and "Events" tables) based on only 2018 events.
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vTimwUHLIXoB_G9xlfiQaDqNCfXuQz31OvbmxKmCwGvOc9AAuNq4sHZkhouJnEGt4F5flHXZvm8Tv1Q/pubhtml

  • And here are some statistics from 2018:
    • 384 players joined to the Tour events during 2018
      this number was 319 last year (and 530 total so far)
      • 21 players joined to 40 or more events
        this number was 18 last year
      • 44 players joined to 30 or more events
        this number was 42 last year
      • 69 players joined to 20 or more events
        this number was 72 last year
      • 129 players joined to 10 or more events
        this number was 137 last year
      • 193 players joined to 5 or more events
        this number was 192 last year
      • 291 players joined to 2 or more events
        this number was 263 last year
    • 50 tournaments
      • 4 - Grand Slams
      • 8 - Masters 1000
      • 12 - 500 Series
      • 26 - 250 Series
    • 3918 finished games

  • And here are the Tour records based on only 2018 events











GL&HF in the 2019 Tour Race as well!
Who will be the new king! :)

And now the AWP World Tour Finals is coming!

This new Tour event is based on the yearly AWP World Tour Races, where the TOP16 players will be invited from.
And it is a fight for the AWP World Champion title.

So based on AWP World Tour Race 2018 above, here is the first Tour Finals Bracket (Quicksilver was retired so replaced by Milly (17th))



The fights will start soon, stay tuned ;)
