Thank you all for responses, we've completed 32 players. The list is as follows (in alphabetical order):


Tier 1:
13Chris37 dead piggy dunga Heyheuhei Luxis myhandisonfire Timinator zibik21

Tier 2:
Chaos dreuj Featherbucket Frankdeslimste Gnuffone lobstrosity Widzisz Yoshi

Tier 3:
brisk dodo comander Doggy Style Falker Ineffable JSA Jupiter Militarymaniac Niko Noobschool Red Ryan Summer TheWarlightMaster warlightvet x

The tier's have been chosen subjectively and were used to determine final groups. Still, I am awaiting response from 2 more players, so there might be a possibility of a substitute. Anyway, here are the groups, A to H (tier 1 players were distributed manually by alphabetical order, tier 2 players were drawn 1 per group, rest were drawn randomly using excel's random number generator):

Group A:
13Chris37
Gnuffone
dodo comander
Niko

Group B:
dead piggy
lobstrosity
Ryan
Warlightvet

Group C:
dunga
dreuj
Summer
TheWarlightMaster

Group D:
Heyheuhei
Yoshi
Noobschool
Red

Group E:
Luxis
Frankdeslimste
Ineffable
MilitaryManiac

Group F:
myhandisonfire
Chaos
Doggy Style
Jupiter

Group G:
Timinator
Widzisz
JSA
x

Group H:
zibik21
Featherbucket
brisk
Falker


Every group has an internal 1vs1 RR and they play 3 2vs2 games, each game worth 1 point (6 points total). Top 2 advance the tiebreaker being 1vs1 game result. After round 1 is finished I will announce new draws and templates. I remind you that templates for round 1 are strategic 1vs1 with 0% luck weighted round and guiroma 2vs2 with 0% luck straight round.
Good luck to all participants!

All 2vs2 games have been created. Boot times are 3 days direct, 5 days auto. Since all 2vs2 games are played simultaneously you don't need to play very fast, but I'd ask for you to join as soon as possible not to stall the tournament (there is no force-join outside of tournament structure). I will update the status of results at least once a week.
IMPORTANT RULE: To prevent confusion there will be NO substitute games. Once you join, the game result will be final regardless of boots.

On a sidenote to community:

- Which groups seem most interesting?
- Who are your favourites?
- Who are "black horses"?

Good luck to all participants!

p.s. Please exchange the previous notable thread for this one, the previous one may be closed for now.

I'll make my predictions:
Group A: I think anyone could win, although my best guess would be Gnuffone.
Group B: Dead piggy or Lobstrsotiy will win this one, should be a very intersting game between the two of them.
Group C: I think anyone in this group could win, but dreuj and dunga are my favorites in that one.
Group D: I think Heyheuhei has got to be considered the favorite here, but I think Yoshi or Red could surprise him and end up winning it.
Group E: Luxis is defintely my favorite in this one, with Frankdeslimste being a definite second.
Group F: I would predict Myhand or Chaos or JUPITER, i think all would have a decent chance.
Group G: I would say Timinator has to be considered the favorite but I think Widzisz definitely has a shot at winning it.
Group H: Strong Group, Zibik and Brisk will fight for first while Featherbucket could upset them and Falker could surprise as well.

Overall Predicted Standings for Each Group:
A: 1. Gnuffone, 2. 13CHRIS37, 3. Niko, 4. Dodo commander
B: 1. Dead piggy, 2. Lobstrosity, 3. Warlightvet, 4. Ryan
C: 1. Dreuj, 2. Dunga, 3. Summer, 4. Warlight Master
D: 1. Red, 2. Heyhuehei, 3. Yoshi, 4. NoobSChool
E: 1. Luxis, 2. Frankdeslimste, 3. Ineffable, 4. Military Maniac
F: 1. JUPITER, 2. Myhand, 3. Chaos, 4. Doggy STyle
G: 1. Timinator, 2. Widzisz, 3. JSA, 4. X
H: 1. Zibik, 2. Brisk, 3. Featherbucket, 4. Falker

I think there will be many upsets though and my predictions will probably end up being way off.

Overall winner of this event: Timinator has got to be my favorite.

I hope JSA doesn't mind me copying his post and editing. ;) I'm to lazy to write from scratch, but turns out, we got a bit different points of view on some of the standings..

A:
1. Gnuffone, 2. Chris, 3. Niko, 4. Dodo commander
Very strong team, my two favourites here are [WM]Gnuffone and 13Chris37, with an underdog of Niko waiting in the shadows.. Dodo would need some luck here, but he does surprise strong players from time to time. Gnu is my bet for #1 because he improved a lot in recent weeks, and seems to progress even further.

B:
1. Dead piggy, 2. Lobstrosity, 3. Warlightvet, 4. Ryan
In my opinion it's one of two most unbalanced groups: i don't believe Ryan nor Warlightvet have any reasonable chance of winning this group, but with enough effort and focus one of them could take #2 and progress to next round. Good luck!

C:
1. Dunga, 2. Dreuj, 3. Summer, 4. Warlight Master
Totally disagree on everyone being able to win this one. In my opinion it's the second most unbalanced group. I think dunga is the definite favourite here, but with his recent inactivity, he might end up getting booted. In that case, SummerSadness would be my guess for #2

D:
1. Heyheuhei, 2. Red, 3. Yoshi, 4. NoobSchool
Unlike JSA, I find this group very close - everyone of those players is very good, and every one of them has different play style, so this could end up being the most interesting to watch..

E:
1. Luxis, 2. Frankdeslimste, 3. Ineffable, 4. Military Maniac
agree on JSA's opinion here: Luxis is defintely my favorite in this one, with Frankdeslimste being a definite second.

F:
1. Myhand, 2. JUPITER, 3. Chaos
I'm a bit upset you did not even mention me here, but i agree I'm gonna have some hard time beating the other players. Challenge accepted. I'm not going to include me in the predictions whatsoever and am sure Myhand is the definite favourite.

G:
1. Timinator, 2. Widzisz, 3/4. JSA/X
Timinator is in great form, so i believe he's most likely to take the first place, but still very strong player - Widzisz, after a long break might take the championship of this group, if only he had time to "warm up" and not lost his skills during the absence. Both JSA and X are underdogs here, they might surprise many, but i don't think they will reach the 1/2

H:
1. Zibik, 2. Featherbucket, 3. Brisk, 4. Falker
Zibik, being one of the "legends" of warlight has some pressure on him, but still he's got three very good players on the ring, so this group will definitely be worth following.


I believe in Gnuffone as the underdog capable and very determined to win this competition and I hope he does. If not him, then probably one of the three: hhh, myhand, timi - depending who will care about it, and who will have enough luck, cause when focussed all of them are extremely good players. Some of the others considered top players might be simply not flexible enough to push the wins regardless of templates used in the following rounds. For sure this league will be one of the most interesting events in warlight.

Let's make a short update so that everyone recognizes how every game even in 1st round is important.

First a short announcement, I wrote about it before, but I'll say it again, there are no substitute games as far as scoring is concerned. The main point behind the league is to make a structure that'd allow for minimal boot involvement and that'd make players play at the highest level at every point throughout the tournament. So do not follow Chaos's example, who surrendered in all 2vs2 games since he was booted in one...

Anyway here are temporary standings after some of the games in the 1st round:
Group A:
Place  |  Player           |  Wins |  Losses | Points Total
   1   | Gnuffone          |    1  |    0    |       1

Same mistake in group G.
Thanks for doing the tables, I've been wondering if anyone already passed to next round.
Predictions... I never played with many players here, so I won't even try to bet on or against them.
Tier 1 players are in Tier 1 for a reason I guess, so if I had to, I would bet on them. Impossible for me to point a favorite here.

Hey all-

First off, the notable post thing is killing me, tonight is the first time I realized this thread existed. As Gui points out, I am less focused on WL recently and it shows both in my play and on the social side of things. Anyone who has been playing less than a year I can't predict for shit, and any post that is not "notable" I entirely miss.

FIZZER DO SOMETHING, DON'T LOSE YOUR BASE

Second... actually that's all I really had to say.
