Welcome to Week #38 of WarGamingLive tournaments!
Due to real-life reasons, at least for the next few weeks, Mythonian will not be able to host the streams, but me and Gnuffone decided to keep this tradition of weekend livestreamed events. Luckily we managed to gather some of the top players and many other interested in participating. I hope this time we will get even more! Last week we organized everything in a hurry, so there were many things to be improved, but we'll try to make it as good as we can, and we hope to improve with every edition.
Unfortunately neither of us have the possibility to host the actual stream. Therefore WE ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW STREAM HOST. If you have a powerful computer and a fast internet connection, then invite me to a game and tell me. We have one volunteer, but as for now he is not able to host it every weekend, and unfortunately this edition will be without a stream as well.
Feel free to suggest the templates for this week in this thread
Big thanks to all of you for being with us even despite lack of stream lately, and good luck this week!

I will be making a "Lobby" to test whether or not the participants signed up are active.
The lobby is usually opened around 30 minutes before the actual tournament. The lobby will show up in the open tourney listings. So either you can be invited to it, or join it outright.
The easiest way to join lobby tournament is to post here. You will be included in WGL invite list, and will be invited directly into it.
Even if you post here and get thrown on WGL invite list your spot is not guaranteed.
To be included into the WGL tournament, you have to join LOBBY TOURNAMENT first. Then depending on the number of people interested, we will decide how big the real tournament will be. Usually there are slightly less open spots, than people interested. In that case it will be decided following two rules: the priority to join the tournament will be given to the "regular" participants and legends of WGL. Then the other teams will be invited, and we will use first come - first serve rule - whichever team accepts tournament faster gets in.
Past commentators: Dunga • apex, [WG] Reza, x • apex, Mian, kcscrag, [WM] Trollusa, and more!
Past hosts: Mythonian, Lolowut (MIA).
WE ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW STREAM HOST
If you're interested in becoming a host, or commentator (especially useful when one of us doesn't feel up to doing it), invite me to a game. You must have skype in order to become a commentator.
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.
Tournament Results and Player Stats:
Stats are done for the Livestreamed 1v1 Tournaments! Check them out here: http://goo.gl/glWHm
(choose "1v1s" or "PlayerStats" at the bottom)
Mythonian will be adding 2v2s and more detailed player stats in the near future.
There is an issue with this: People changing their names won't be automatically detected by the system unless I were to have it refresh with the WarLight servers periodically (which I'd prefer avoid doing), so if you change your name and want accurate stats, TELL ME so I can fix it manually!! (also, this won't group stats from Alt accounts unless you tell me to manually adjust it)
Heyheuhei: 13 wins 1 tie
Timinator: 13 wins 1 tie
Gnuffone: 8 wins

Congrats to the winners and legends!
