I’m pleased to announce a special WarLight event called Timinator versus The World! This is a public 1v1 WarLight game that anyone can participate in.

This game is a game where one side of the game will be played by Timinator, who’s one of WarLight’s best players, and the other side is played by you! Everyone in the WarLight community can vote on what move to make in the game, and the highest voted option will be carried out in the game.

This game’s primary purpose it to serve as a learning exercise — who wins isn’t important. The game will take two turns every week – one every Tuesday and another every Friday. Check the forum to follow along with the game, read strategies, share your strategy, and of course, vote!

The voting uses Polljunkie, which has a cool voting system that doesn’t require you to pick a single option. Rather, you can rate each option in order to select your preferences.

I will create a forum post for the turns every three days or so; every post will have a set of options which you can vote on. I will ask some people to help analyze and come up with possible movesets to make sure we get a reflective idea from the community. After establishing the possible movesets, you will be able to vote on said threads.

Important: Be sure not to post your strategies or talk about the game anywhere except the official forum threads. Timinator knows that he’s forbidden from reading the clearly marked threads, but if you talk about the game somewhere else he may accidentally come across it.

The first vote is on the template! We'd like to know on which template you'd like to humiliate Timinator:
1) Ancient Greece
2) Guiroma (16%SR)
3) Biomes
4) Unicorn Islands

You may now rank your preferences via this link: http://www.polljunkie.com/poll/crtbjt/what-template-will-we-play-timinator-on

Also, credit goes to Fizzer for writing most of this post for the previous event: The Impaller versus The World, as can be seen on this blogpost: https://www.warzone.com/blog/index.php/2011/04/

Nice idea!!

Although, one of these forum threads every three days? That's a lot. Maybe try to condense it too one forum thread every three turns.

Also, who will be playing against Timinator in the game?

Otherwise, looks great!

Very important EDIT: I go into the tank link, signed myself in... But when then there is still no section to vote... I have tried it 3 times, but still none. Idk if you haven't created it yet though

The poll link doesn't show me any options, only asks to sign in/register. Used my Google account to sign in. This is what I see:

1. Interesting idea, I like it

2. Poll is empty (as DanWL said)

3. @Viking1007: I guess Farah will be playing Timi

4. Fizzer should fix the images and special characters not rendering on the android app

It's weird; I tested the poll with another browser and it worked fine. Now it doesn't. I've replaced it with another polling site that I've also tested, so tell me if it works. The account playing Timinator will be mine, as it will make committing easier. The poll-link is updated in the first post.

I vote for a stronger opponent, more like Timiweak!

Anyone rated higher than him on 1v1 ladder will do. I nominate Jefferspin, he's very classy.

Thanks for that link Farah
Please don't add a new forum for this every couple days, we can just keep adding to this one
I assume Timi will not be reading the discussion of moves in this thread to keep the game fair....

As this is a remake of the original event, I see little reason not to, as it did the same things. It kept things organized and on topic. If you're interested in the 2011 edition, take a look right here: https://www.warzone.com/wiki/The_Impaller_versus_The_World

Looking at that wiki, separating it into multiple threads seems like the way to go

Jeff's not rated high enough either.

Jefferweak is only slightly stronger than Timiweak.

Great, we better win so Timi can't get that 100% achievements + beating the world stat.

@Farah, there is a mod called information for spectators. Haven't tried it myself but sounds super-useful for this event. (If need be, we can likely just fork that mod to only show the world's players info)

EDIT: that mod is not really what we are looking for :/

So TBest and I tried this and it wasn't what we're looking for. A few ideas have been tossed around about how to let people spectate the game, but so far it seems to have more disadvantages than advantages. Writing a mod to achieve a spectator view looks to be impossible for now. It's likely we'll use screenshots to inform The World of the state of the game.


There also was an Odin vs the world event in 2014.

Yes, I forgot about that one. The World beat Odin in that one!


will there be any twitch streams for this?

Probably, but no promises.

Apply to what?

It would be unfair if I was the opponent. I would destroy you all too easily.
