Second thread, and Lolowut's still MIA! And what's worse, I'll be out of town tomorrow and can't do the 1v1 stream! (but we'll probably still have the tournament play out even without a stream)



Here's the templates for this week:
1v1: http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?TemplateID=128409 EA@O 1v1
2v2: http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer.aspx?TemplateID=255104 Szeuropa 2v2

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

Times & Dates:
12:00 PM US/Central, 6:00 PM GMT, on March 30th, 2013 (1v1) {I can't host it, so someone else will need to}
12:00 PM US/Central, 6:00 PM GMT, on March 31st, 2013 (2v2)


Stream: http://twitch.tv/WarGamingLive
YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/WarGamingLive

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.



Commentary:

Hosts: Mythonian, Lolowut (MIA), Szeweningen
Commentators: Dunga, Reza, X, Mian, kcscrag, Trollusa

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 Mythonian. You must have skype in order to become a commentator.



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.

Q: Who hosts the stream or tournament if none of the hosts can?

A: Unfortunately no one. This is the reason we went a month only having a single tournament each week. We're always looking for new hosts, though!

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 one of the commentators on Skype. We all have Skype up during the tourney and can get your thoughts conveyed.

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

A: Message Mythonian or someone on Skype.



Past Winners:

I decided to get rid of the giant list and instead made this: http://goo.gl/glWHm

I'll be expanding this to include a lot more information and stuff in the future! Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm lazy to make that distinction at the moment. May make it later, but for now consider it a 3-way shared win. :D

Mythonian - you read my mind - last week after i won my legend status, i made a very similar spreadsheet :) did not finish it yet, but on mine there were two additional things - every event had a link to the tournament, and i listed second places as well.. you may consider it..

and i'm so sad now that I'm in legends, the winners are no longer listed on the forum post :( ;P

and there is a big mistake in your spreadsheet - the right hand winners column - the one with widzisz and psy has wrong script: (=countif(D:E,L28) instead of =countif(E:G,I28)). cheers.

now i made a mistake ;P

=countif(D:E,L28)

should be changed to

=countif(E:G,L28) etc.

(just change D:E to E:G)

The ol' triple post

If there's a shared win, they should each get .5 or .3 added to their total.

It´s a pìty, since Lolo left not too much has happened in the 1vs1 tournies or coffee breaks, since mtth doesnt have time. It is good it is still going on, but more could be done.

Personally I think it has lost the main appeal which made it so successful the first couple of months.

The number of people / teams turning up just isn´tthe same :( nowadays in the 2vs2 we struggle to get 8, whereas before on the 1vs1 i think once there were 64 participants.

The settings are making people turn away. Most people who are not members have never played the East Asia & Oceania strategic 1v1, or Szeuropa 2v2, and on these settings practise is important. In the first couple of months it used to just be strategic 1vs1 and strategic 2vs2, which though some may view as repetivie, it is arguably the most widely supported template and anyone can play realtime or multiday to practise more.

Also the livestreams. At the beginning people who were not great could have their games and mistakes looked over by people who had more experience, which helps improve massively. The streams these days arent as good as before, arent as many guests for example.

These days, not anyones fault, the people who play are mostly pros, so any newer player usualy loses the first match easily, meaning it isnt looked at on the steam and they dont improve much. Before there were a couple of good players who often turned up, but a large majority were newer, meaning you had unknown players in the semis and sometimes even the finals.


Good luck with the tournament and the stream tomorrow though, I hope it happens :) unlike the 1vs1

does anyone know if lolo planned to be gone for so long? its only been 64 players when fizzer came to help. a big reason its less popular is because lolos invite list was bigger so more people got invited. Finally, less people come because the lobbies are required to be realtime lobbies, so a person wont get emailed when the lobby opens

Yeah, sorry for the lack of the 1v1 tournament. 2v2 will happen as planned tomorrow.

However, for future weeks it will probably switch. The 1v1s will happen and the 2v2s will be uncertain until we can get another person able to host a stream.

@Fridge, I fixed the formula. Thanks for pointing that out. I plan on adding much more when I get some more free time. :)

@Timinator, not entirely sure what you mean by "win-quota," but I plan on adding a variety of stats and stuff like that.

@Hedja, part of the reason to struggle getting 8 for the 2v2s is as seahawks said, as well as that we stopped posting threads for a full month. The settings may, as you said, be turning some people away. If people want, we can go to a more standard setup. Depends what people want, variety or comfortability.

The lack of guests is mainly that (1) I'm the only hoster, and (2) most of the guest-commentators only did it once and haven't really shown up since. Sze, x, and sometimes Reza are the only ones who get on consistently for the tournaments.

Myth, you should change your invite list settings so anyone who plays a game with you is added to your invite list automatically, and your invite list will soon be very large. If you decide this is a problem it is pretty easy to cut it back down to just good players.

It's just too much to (attempt to) have 2 livestreams a week (plus coffee breaks when those were happening). It's only natural that it would become wearing.

In my opinion, you should do ten weeks on and then ten weeks off, or whatever numbers. It would be better to say "hey, come back in two months", than to keep doing it every week but have it being on different nights, different times, sometimes not happening at all.

There might be a drop in participation in the first week back, but you would regain the momentum pretty quickly.

Just because they get 10 weeks off, doesn´t mean they can open their weekends for the next ten weeks :S Also during the 10 off there would be times where myth is available to make a stream + tourny, so would it then not happen?

Quality, not quantity... the best would be if there was an account with all the good players who are interested in live tournaments, and not just random 3000 people, from which most are probably noobs, or inactive people.. :)
