I've been busy lately, so sorry for not posting this update until now. First of all, I was very pleased with at least half of Lolowut's Coffee Break, I thought the interview turned out very well and was entertaining. I do apologize for the sporadic news, it just was not a good day for me. My professor decided to lecture 1 hour past schedule, then rain came out of nowhere. I got to my friend's house 30 minutes before going live, soaking wet, and obviously a bit unprepared. I apologize, this next week should be a lot different (it can only get better, they said.)

Anyways, we have the normal 1v1 and 2v2 tournaments coming your way this weekend, and let's not forget that Dunga will be hosting a live class tomorrow. It will be covering 1v1 and should be very interesting, I know I'll be listening in. Lolowut's Coffee Break is also scheduled at its usual time, and I'll be inviting another special guest to speak and give insight of his/her perspective of the game. It should be informative and interesting and I hope you can all listen in on the events.

Regarding the tournaments, I've had comments about implementing a system in which more experienced players will have the chance to join before more inexperienced players can. My view on this: I don't discriminate. These tournaments are supposed to be for everyone. We will have other tournaments with pre-reqs to allow for greater competition, but the 2 weekend tournaments will remain open for all, unless replaced by a tournament with pre-reqs for a week. More details on that will be available later.

I've been loving the responses I've been getting from the community. Thank you guys, I wouldn't do this if not for the awesome community!

Times & Dates: 1:00 PM GMT-0 @ October 19th, 2012 (Dunga Live Class)
12:00PM US/Central @ October 20th, 2012 (1v1)
12:00PM US/Central @ October 21st, 2012 (2v2)
4:00PM US/Central @ October 23rd, 2012 (Lolowut's Coffee Break)


Methods of joining:

The easiest way to join this tournament is to post here. You will be thrown into my invite list directly, and be thrown into the total count of participants. This will help me gauge how many people will be playing and how big to make the tournament.

There are two other ways to join. I will be making a "Lobby" to test whether or not the participants signed up are active. This will show up in the tourney listings. So either you can be invited to it, or join it outright.

Lobby:

Even if you post here and get thrown on my invite list your spot is not guaranteed. You have to prove to me you're on at that time. I will be inviting everyone I know on Warlight into this "Lobby", to guarantee your spot you must join that tourney.

Disqualifications:

You may be disqualified from ever entering the tournament again if you:

1. Fail to join the actual tournament.
2. Get booted during the actual tournament.

It is up to the host's discretion.

Commentators:

Currently, Mythonian, Kcscrag, and I are the hosts. We have 2 official expert commentators named Dunga and Szeweningen. If you're interested in becoming a commentator (especially useful when one of us doesn't feel up to doing it), invite me to a game or add me on skype at Lolowut. You must have skype in order to become a commentator, I'm not willing to play around with unfamiliar programs. Only things you'll have to prove to me is that you have enough knowledge of 1v1 and in some cases 2v2 in order to accurately analyze a game, and not have a boring voice.

Q/As

Q: What happens if we don't get a nice number of people that would make the brackets logical?

A: Everyone who joined the Lobby will be thrown into the actual tournament, if the number of people is greater than the bracket, then it becomes a contest of joining fastest. I'm not willing to set up byes and odd brackets and host the tourney through invited games. Sorry, just the way I run it.

Q: Who hosts the stream or tournament if none of the hosts(Lolowut, Mythonian, Kcscrag) can?

A: Anyone can host it. I'm sure if I'm unable to host it I'd be willing to give you tips on how to do it. The stream requires a great computer, so be careful.

Q: I don't have a great voice and speak English terribly, but I do want to help the analysis, how do I do so?

A: Add Mythonian or I on skype. Me @ Lolowut and Myth @ Mythonian. We both have skype up during the tourney and can get your thoughts conveyed.

Q: I signed up, but I'm not getting invited. Why?

A: If you were disqualified from entry ever again, I've invited you to a game and informed you. Plead your case, I may be willing to let you back in.

Until it's uploaded to YouTube, it can be viewed on the Twitch.tv account at the following link: http://www.twitch.tv/wargaminglive/b/335811309

Working on getting everything uploaded to the YouTube account eventually, but there's a heck of a lot of stuff... xD

It seems that this is by far the most succesful of the player made ladders (including the clan belt, promotion relegation league, etc). Congratulations. While I'm not interested in joining, (too busy at the moment) I hope this continues. Good luck Lolowut and Mythonian.

@Chancellor PlatyPalpatine

I don't think I will play in a live 2v2 tournament another time, it's too long for me...
But if I will, I will join your team.
