Welcome to Week #8. Man. It's already been 2 months of events. I need more energy drinks. It's been fun so far, and it can only get better! Alright, so a few things to discuss. We will now be implementing an auto-boot of 10 minutes to all of the live tournaments that Fizzer can be on for. Gotta be quicker in these Tourneys so that people can get back to their lives, and the commentators don't have to talk for 4 hours straight.

This week, we'll be using normal ladder templates, but Week #9, we will be looking to do a different template. I have a few suggestions from Szeweningen already, and they look pretty awesome, but you guys can post your own here in the topic and we'll take a look.

Other than that, pretty normal week o.o

Times & Dates: 1:00 PM GMT-0 @ October 26th, 2012 (Dunga Live Class)
12:00PM US/Central @ October 27th, 2012 (1v1)
12:00PM US/Central @ October 28th, 2012 (2v2)
4:00PM US/Central @ October 30th, 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.

Can you invite me to the real tournament even if I don't join the lobby?
Sometimes I miss the real tournament because I see the lobby a few minutes after the real tournament was created, and then you don't have time to invite me before it starts.
I know the rules of the tournament so if I join that means I can play real time.

for 1V1 10 minutes is probably fine, 2V2 on the other hand i've seen turns (especially deployment) take 30+ minutes

That's exactly why auto boot is necessary. Now you'll be motivated to do it in 10 minutes so the tournament can actually finish.

Ha, that's funny. Too bad my first game didn't get analyzed, instead my atrocious second game did. It....let me just say, it wasn't my best game.....
