Welcome to Week #13. Please give a round of applause for new commentators, as Reza and x will be my new back-ups, and later permanents to give Szew and Dunga frequent breaks! :). Of course, there is no one who will replace me ever, so I will still be as tired as usual. Anyways, big thanks to Fizzer for making Week #12 interesting with a 64-player live tournament and the new Heavy Earth map we're still playing with. I felt that the 64-player live tournament went well and definitely can be repeated.
I feel like hosting another Shortlist Round Robin. So I will host another Shortlist Round Robin this Friday, time will be announced as soon as I talk to all the people I'm inviting ^^. The template will probably be Turkey, unless they overwhelmingly vote in something else. It'll give a nice review for the 1v1 on Saturday.
Btw, look down at the winners column. I added a 'Legends' column. Quite interesting.
Here's the templates for this week:
2v2: Some type of Heavy Earth. A definite template is TBA.
Big thanks to all of you for watching and helping out and good luck this week!

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.
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.
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.
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: 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.
