THE TEMPLATE CONCEPTS

Some words about the background of the major and 500 Series events template choices.

The popularity of the templates was the primary concern.
So I simple chose the 12 templates for major events, with the most points (given by you) from this topic: https://www.warlight.net/Forum/174165-awp-world-tour-12-major-event-templates

The popularity was important for the twelve 500 Series templates too, I tried to choose the most populars, used the topic above and the official ladder poll (https://www.warlight.net/Forum/151334-official-ladder-poll-results).

(Edit: it was in the beggining, now we have a Template Panel (TOP7 ranked players) who can help manage the changes if new popular templates come)

But in addition to this popularity aspect, I always use my loved tennis ATP World Tour aspects too :)
I mean, I tried to implement many ATP World Tour concepts into the AWP World Tour.

Started with the Grand Slams.
In the tennis, one of the biggest performance if somebody can do the Grand Slam (= win all the four Grand Slam events). Because the differencies of the courts (Hard, Grass, Clay) it is a very hard challenge, only a few really great players were able to do it so far!

This is why the variety was the most important factor, and not simple chose the 4 most popular templates. Ok, the popularity was an important factor too (this is why I didn't choose LD template), but, for example, the variety for Grand Slams were more important than for Masters.

Very few players love both the old and the new 1v1 Ladders. This is good! I mean, both templates are very populars (this is the most important thing), but divisive too (just like the clay or grass courts in tennis).
The MA template is not a habitual for most players, need different skills a bit (it can be the clay surface :) ).
And the Greece template maybe is not so simple than Battle Islands or Guiroma (at least for me, I can easy understand the last two, while I still can't understand well the Greece :D )

Therefore if somebody will be able to do the Grand Slam in AWP World Tour, that will be a really great performance imo.

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.)

On the ATP World Tour there are seasons, like Clay, Grass seasons.
So there are seasons in AWP World Tour too.
  • After the Guiroma Masters (first week of March) until the Elitism Africa 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 Elitism Africa 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)
These (using tennis aspects) is my additional fun, but if the majority want to change anything I am totally open for it, because this series is for everyone's fun, and I am only one of you ;)

Cheers,
Ekstone

Monthly Tour Update - 05/2017
  • The TOP10 on the Tour after May:



    First of all a good news, seems Pana didn't retire completely!
    Despite his reduced activity and earlier boots, he still could increase his advantage.
    He earned a nice 12-3 records (with 2 boot defeats) and got 250 additional points with an event win and a semifinal.

    MIFRAN earned a 7-4, Buns earned a 2-1 and MoD earned a 5-2 records, but neither of the rest of the Big Four gain any points because their already strong best of six results (only three 500 Series and one 250 Series events finished in the last month)

    Wini earned a 2-3 records and stay the same point level too (seems he is a major event specialist ;) )

    rakleader earned a good 8-4 records, and gain 135 points, but stay at the 6th position slightly reducing his point disadvantage to Wini, and slightly increased his point advantage over ANT who earned a 4-4 records and didn't get any points.

    FlyingBender did the only position change in the TOP10, he earned only a 4-3 records, but all his wins come from the Earthsea 500 Series event (resulting a semifinal) and gain 160 points, and reach the 8th position. I am happy that I can see him in a finals again after his hard period ;)

    Milly earned a 1-4 records from last month and lost one position to 9th.

    Hades earned a 2-1 records, and gain 25 points, and easy kept his TOP10 position.

  • Positions 11-20 on the Tour after May:



    DR. Love earned a 0-1, Hunta earned a 3-4 records and both Hydras stay in the same positions (Hunte gain 25 points though).

    Quicksilver no new activity, just like usual, albeit finally he joined to a few events in the Clay season :P

    ACL Tears earned a very nice 6-0 records (won the Red Dead Redemption 500 Series event), gain 490 points and did a nice position change from 26th to 14th!

    Although Timinator hasn't yet won any event, but his rank is continuously raising month by month. He earned now a nice 8-3 records, gain 305 points, and went from 21th to 15th position.

    CHRIS, Krzysztof and ps the three Tour veterans were in the 14th, 15th, 16th positions in last month, but all of them sunk now. CHRIS earned 3-4 records but 0 points and sunk to 16th positions. Krysztof earned 2-2 records and 25 points but sunk to 18th pos. ps earned 4-4 records, 25 points but sunk to 19th position.

    Seems that awesomeusername's momentum slow down (just compared to last months when he run very well) and earned "only" a 4-2 records and gain 170 points, raising from 19th to 17th (still raising though ;) )

    Emu Pub earned a 1-1 records, and gain 20 points but still sunk 3 positions (from 17th to 20th).

    The field is very very close around these positions!

During my late update a new event finished in June, congrats time.

36. AWP World Tour - 500 Series - RAD-O§IL
https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer/Tournament?ID=22243
Congratulations to Pardon99 for his first Tour event win! With this 500 points he will be in the TOP50 so no more need any wild card for him (I like when players give the wild card back so fast, because it certainly means that I gave the card to the right player ;) )
Congrats to Njord for his first final as well.
And congrats to the two Lynx members in the semifinals (although was an upset for me that none of them reach the final)

Here are the TOP16:
