It's been fun for 2012, but this is our final live week this year. We'll be starting back up next year at January 5th. Let's all give it up to Fizzer for giving us one beautiful update. Now we will never have problems about stalled tournaments since we can make our tournaments real-time! Also, CLOT is awesome, so I'll be working on projects all through the holidays.

Anyways, thank Szeweningen for giving us a new 2v2 template, which will be featured this week. I highly suggest playing it once or twice before going live. It's different than what you think. In accordance to using his Szeuropa, I'm also using his Greek template. So it's going to be an all Szew week.

Thanks for being a loyal and cooperative audience so far, and let's end this year correct with some epic fun this week!

Here's the templates for this week:

1v1: http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer.aspx?TemplateID=239035 Szew's Greece Strat 1v1
2v2: http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer.aspx?TemplateID=255104 Szeuropa

Big thanks to all of you for watching and helping out and good luck this week!

Times & Dates: 12:00PM US/Central @ December 15th, 2012 (1v1)
12:00PM US/Central @ December 16th, 2012 (2v2)
4:00PM US/Central @ December 18th, 2012 (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. We also have 2 official support commentators named Reza and x. 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.

Lolowut, as for the result of the live 3v3 final match last week, while dunga was booted at the picking stage, being focussed on commentating his earlier game, Gnuff asked us to give them a "last chance" match and we did agree on it - but as we were unable to play it that day, they surrendered in the tournament (to prevent autoboot). Still we agreed not to treat that as the final result, so:

match between (me, Gangnam and Psy) vs (Gnuff, Dunga, Inferno) is yet to be played. We just have to set a date for it to remain a realtime game.

just to make things clear, i wasnt booted cause commentating, if anything i didnt commentate properly to play. What happened was that I had connection problems, that could have happened at any time, and would boot me anyway.
I blame my internet provider.

But yeah, i would like to play and make an official result.

I'm confused.

12:00PM US/Central @ December 15th, 2012 (1v1)

That time still hasn't been reached. It's 11:12 CST. I saw in the lobby that people said it had started hours ago, also the tournament seems to no longer be listed any longer.

Nauzhror: Whoever said it started hours ago is incorrect. Is it possible you're looking at the lobby from last weekend?

Don't believe so, I had gotten an invite yesterday and joined yesterday, saw a few hours ago that Fridge had asked if it was too late and someone responded and said yes.

would be nice to have a specific forum section for live tournaments and when folks post about it they would have a timer on screen clearly showing how long until it starts, and not require to create a lobby to check who is actually online.

ideally it would be to have it open a page where you pledge to be present at a certain time to rumble, and then the tournament gets created at that time and you have to be there or forfeit your place. i guess this could be done through CLOT. hmmm

Could Sze do his best automated weatherman voice and tell us the day's forecast? I think he has a future in being the next best automated weatherman voice.

Why I posted the time & date of coffee break is beyond me. It's my father's birthday so of course I'm not doing it. I already said that the Sunday Livestream was my last for the year. Sorry folks. Guess it's just a habit to add a week onto all the dates. XD
