Live Events: Week #30 (Now with Prereqs?): 4/11/2013 03:57:39

Level 55
Report
Last week we had a record-setting 1v1 tournament of 128 players, but we won't be going that big anymore. Due to many suggestions and some great discussion in last week's thread, we'll be adding some prerequisites so that we will hopefully not have people join and then never do their turn and just get booted. Post some suggested prereqs for us to use?

Also, do the lack of another host and my schedule preventing a full stream on Sundays, we're moving that so it starts earlier.



Here's the templates for this week:
1v1: http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?TemplateID=297314 Modified 1v1 Strategic
2v2: http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?TemplateID=292007 2v2 Heavy Earth

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

Times & Dates:
(1v1) 12:00 PM US/Central, 6:00 PM GMT, on April 13th, 2013
(2v2) 11:00 PM US/Central, 5:00 PM GMT, on April 14th, 2013

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", and to guarantee your spot you must join that tourney.



Commentary:

Hosts: Mythonian, Lolowut (MIA),
Commentators: Szeweningen, Robespierre, 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
Malamute: 7 wins
Gnuffone: 6 wins
Gangnam: 5 wins
Myhand: 4 wins
Frankdeslimste: 4 wins

Congrats to the winners and legends!

I don't welcome any prereqs besides for say 100 games played and a good boot percentage.

+1 luxis - 200 games is to much if we want to teach people by this streamed event. I agree with luxis. i know i was the one who suggested winrate and i mentioned 30% but yes - i think we should just make minimum of 50 or 100 games with good bootrate. Let's encourage new players to participate and let's do our best for them to improve. This series should not be an elitist arena. Not until we find a second host and make two separate livestream levels.

Gnuff - I would say yes (given I qualify), but I can't tell for sure if I can commit at the given time. That's why WL gets me stuck in the first place, it doesn't constrain my liberty.

if we find at least ppl, we could do it, or if we get less, we can play on multiaccount maybe.

Heh, the boot rate scares me. I almost never get booted from real-time games, but I often get booted from multi-day. Please invite me, as I will not be able to join if you set a low boot rate. Thanks. :)

I created the account "WarlightTutoring" to use it as a tutoring account to help others improve while playing against some of the best players of warlight, while at the same time being able to listen to advice and ask questions. I never made big of a secret out of the password, cause i thought people would respect the idea and not fool around with it.
Apparently this was naive.
So, whoever used this account to post here in the forum, it was not me.

Heavy earth :(

I might try for the 1v1 tourny if i can make it, definitely will not play on heavy earth, i dislike heavy earth with a passion.

If there is a 2v2 shortlist, i doubt I would make it, but depending on when it is and what settings I might make the cut because better players cannot make it.

they're not prerequisited. only a SHORT LIST of people are invited to this ROUND ROBIN. So you have to earn the invitation by being recognized for your skill. Stats are irrelevant.

I'd like to be included in the 1v1 tournament invite list, if possible.


I don't think a boot pre-requisite is overly unfair, to be honest, but if you want a min games played / min win percentage, I think those should be generous.

Oh yeah forgot to say this earlier when i notices it, on the champions list you have the wrong name, I would put all the names fridge has used because he has the tournies under different names :)

But it should change at least to his new one:)

Malamute is, in my opinion, the worst of your 4 (most known) names, but if you wish for it, then let it be.

Also the tournament starts in 2 hours and 35 mintues roughly right? Or am I mixed up by DST?

Myth can't host a stream today. Nosy Kitty Cat (X) is creating the lobby right now, I believe. I'll create the actual tournament if there is still enough interest after the lobby has been up for a few. Sorry for the inconvenience, everyone!
