Live Events: Week #29 (Hoping for 2 Tournies!): 4/4/2013 02:08:47

So after having only a single tournament last week, we're hoping to manage two this week. Not sure about future weeks, but it's a possibility that Robespierre may be hosting the 2v2 this week. We still need to set things up and finalize it. Stay tuned in the replies on this thread for updates!



Here's the templates for this week:
1v1: Strategic 1v1
2v2: Strategic 2v2
^ (keeping it simple this week, using the built-in templates)

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

Times & Dates:
(1v1) 12:00 PM US/Central, 5:00 PM GMT, on April 6th, 2013
(2v2) 12:00 PM US/Central, 5:00 PM GMT, on April 7th, 2013

Stream: http://twitch.tv/WarGamingLive
YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/WarGamingLive
Twitter: http://www.twitter.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), Robespierre (Possibly)
Commentators: Szeweningen, 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.


Legends:

Heyheuhei: 13 wins 1 tie
Timinator: 13 wins 1 tie
Szeweningen: 7 wins
Gnuffone: 6 wins
Malamute: 5 wins
Myhand: 4 wins
Frankdeslimste: 4 wins
Gangnam: 4 wins

Congrats to the winners and legends!

Is it possible to do MODIFIED Strategic 1v1? It would be slightly more interesting then the generic Strat 1v1 settings.

The 1v1 tournament has ended! We successfully got all 128 players in like 25 minutes (thanks to Fizzer's popup announcements!), which I believe makes it the largest real-time tournament created so far!

We also got up to 98 viewers at one time, which I believe is another new record. :)

Stream Part 2: http://www.twitch.tv/wargaminglive/b/387477822


The 2v2 tournament tomorrow will continue as planned, but...

  • Instead of Robespierre hosting the stream, I will.
  • I can only host it until 2:00 PM US/Central, which is 7:00 GMT.
  • We will start the stream early, probably about 30 minutes early.
  • We will use the extra time to go over the Champions League and/or the results from the 1v1 that just ended.

Myth, thanks for still trying to keep this alive, and getting both the largest number of players in a RT tourny and the most viewers at 1 time.

However could you please post what settings will be played a bit earlier in the week please? Had I known it would be both strategics I would've tried to play, but i thought it would be Europe again or something like that :)

hedja - you would have been disappointed - it was modified medium earth.. and 0% luck straight round on 1v1 so not really the announced template.. for me on the other hand it was very nice since i prefer modified to standard ME.

mythonian - not that i'm looking for errors all the time, but i spotted another small one - there waere actually 99 viewers at one point for sure :) maybe there was more but that was the biggest number i have cought this weekend.. so yeah.. Fizzer's announcements make a big difference, and i disagree on what sze said about noobs getting far in this tournament as a problem. In my opinion it would be a very good idea to make the tournament lobby first, invite the interested players, (so that "advanced" or "regular" participants have a guaranteed spot) and after 15 minutes or so, announcing it by Fizz to a wider public.. This way we will be able to make this series more interesting i guess, and will get a lot more people involved, so that the general understanding of basic gameplay, and strategy in the community will be better which i think is what this series was all about in the beginning. BTW Actually NOT inviting new people almost let this event die.. (with a couple other reasons combines of course)

Nosy - not really. Of course more noobs will play, and it might be a bit of a burden to better players who will feel like their "wasting time", but i doubt noob games would get analyzed. And more people playing is a good thing because THOSE players will know this happens, will watch the stream (because it's fun if you play the tournament and might be boring when not directly involved) and in consequence people will learn to play better , and this is exactly what lolo intended - at least it's my impression of his idea.. By the way - i can say from my experience, that being involved in this tournaments has allowed me to improve my games a lot faster than without it.. and i wouldnt watch the stream if were not playing in the series..

Would you watch it if there was zero chance of your games being covered? Every week it's the same players, and multiple times in the same tournament, as they cover both semis and the final. They should do one noob game a week, in the first round.

There are more people watching the start of the stream, and most of those extra players are probably noobs, so they could use the intermediate strategy analysis first. Also, it could be funny if they are really bad.

yeah - but then we would need somebody other than sze for those analysis, because he will only curse and laugh at people.. I understand his reastion, as obviously you do as well, but it's neither productive, nor encouraging for those people..

Ironheart - i almost never see you play these events, maybe you just join the ones that i happen not to, but if you don't then why would you even mind? what i am saying is based on my personal experience, not my whim.
When i started joining these tournaments, i was a clanless, almost anonymous noob. I was not expecting my games to be covered. I was very surprised to reach #2 in sixth streamed live tournament (it was 2v2 and i think i was playing with hedja and it was my first livestreamed tournament ever) and the feedback i got from commentators was very motivating in spite of the fact they laughed hard at my noob moves week after week.. There was even a saying that somebody played a "classic fridge" which meant he had good start, and/or dominating position, but made a move that stupid, that it practically lost a won game.. But it had a great positive impact on my will to improve.
That little motivating influence these tourneys had on me is why i believe random people should be able to join it, and for this to happen, adverts by Fizz are a great thing. I do however believe he should send the adverts to slightly prerequisited group. maybe 100 games played with more > 30% winrate in the type of game that is covered by the tournament? I'm sure he would be able to do it, only question is - how much work would that require...
As for not using sze - despite his arrogance and lazyness he explains the map layouts and templates very well. Sometimes spot on, sometimes fixed only on his strategy idea and not all other possible approaches, but hey - is there even one person who could list all options? For sure there isn't. He is a very valuable commentator, no doubt. I only said he became a tad to harsh on beginners, so we could use some more lenient commentator for "less advanced" players' games.

Szew is very stubborn, I wouldn't expect him to cover those games. But I will from now on, whenever I am commentating.
