For the past few months or so, I've been pondering on how Warlight could become an eSport. This becomes difficult as one of the main attributes of an eSport is watch-ability. Without a spectator mode (and no real good way of creating one), this becomes hard. However, I want to show you all that it can be done, only I'm not sure how entertaining it will be. This tournament is designed to test the waters.

The stream will be an analysis of the games after they're over. So the games will not actually be occurring the same time as the stream. This is the only way to do this, as we cannot make a workable spectator mode without compromising the fog settings. I will be experimenting later on a no-fog tournament, and we'll see how that goes.

I am in charge of hosting the tournament, creating the settings, and such. Mythonian will be running the stream. I picked Mythonian because he already hosts LP videos of Warlight on his youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/user/Myth0nian <-- Check out some of his stuff here.

Anyways, the settings for this tournament will mimic 1v1 ladder for this first run-through. I'll take only 16 players, and if you're interested you must agree to the following:

1. You will be present at 12:00PM GMT-6
2. You will play the games real-time, even if the settings don't force you to.

If you do not follow number 1, you will not be put into the tournament.

If you do not follow number 2, the active player will advance and you will be banned from joining any other live tournaments I do.

Anyways, feel free to sign up. If more than 16 people sign up, it's fine. People will be dropping out, and I MAY make the tournament bigger if the size of the sign ups require me to.

The link to the stream will be provided as soon as we're ready to go either in a new topic or on this one, so keep your eyes peeled.

Enjoy. :)

The stream itself will tentatively begin an hour after the games begin so (1:00PM GMT-6). Of course, technical issues or if the games manage to somehow last longer than expected could cause delays to that.

Ok I'll do it, i have rugby training that finishes at 12:30, but I'm GMT, so I think I can do it. If I can't I'll write here.
The 9th is Sunday right?

Wait, it's just the US have the date numbers different ways round.
Is it the Saturday 8th of September, or Sunday 9th of September?

If it were D/M/YY, wouldn't that mean it would be the 9th of August?

I'm generally a late sleeper on the weekends - I'm not sure if I could wake up at 2:00 PM for the tournament. :/

Sorry for the confusion.

The tournament is set for Saturday, August 8th, 2012, at 12:00 PM (Noon) GMT-6.

GMT-6 is Mountain Daylight Time in the US (MDT).

Timezone Conversions (assuming you are observing Daylight Savings Time)

  • East coast of the US: 2:00 PM EDT.
  • United Kingdom: 7:00 PM BST.
  • etc.


The livestream is set to begin 1 hour after the tournament starts. http://www.twitch.tv/mythonian

Wait I'm confused.
you just said that it started at 12:00 (GMT-6)
GMT is the time that us Brits live in. So surely it would be at 6pm not 7?

btw thanks for clearing up confusion, I only looked at the first number, not second.
I should still be able to do it, same applies though. I'll post here so you know if I can or can't.


Wait. It is only HHH and me inthe tourny? It's going to over quick :P

HHH is scaring the competition away.

Calculating time: 12:00PM GMT-6 = 6:00PM in GMT-0 = 12:00AM in GMT+6

So yeah, Mythonian herp'd derp'd.

In the summer Britain is not on GMT, but BST(British summer time). This is GMT +1, that's why in Britain we have to change the time on our clocks twice a year.

As Green explained, due to Daylight Saving Time, the UK is on BST (not GMT) during the summer. Because of that it's 7:00 instead of 6:00 for them (assuming you actually moved your clock forward an hour a few months ago).

WOOH! Time zones! Are we having fun yet!? xD

Great idea guys. One of your videos (linked below) gives simple instructions on what the settings mean when creating a game.

Look forward to hearing your commentary on our ladder game once it has been concluded!

Lolo and Myth, are neither of you going to play in the tournament as well?
if we get a 4th player we could do semis and then a final and play-off, but with only 3 what will happen?

We have played at least twice.

Since you are a silly silly person... it might behoove you to simply click on names and see games in common.
