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
1v1: TBD
2v2: TBD

Big thanks to all of you for being with us even despite lack of stream lately, and good luck this week!



Times & Dates:
    (1v1)
    June 8th, 2013
    12:00 PM US/Central,
    6:00 PM GMT
    19:00 Continental Europe (GMT+1)
    (no stream unless we find a new host)

    (2v2)
    June 9th, 2013
    11:00 PM US/Central,
    5:00 PM GMT
    18:00 Continental Europe (GMT+1)
    (no stream unless we find a new host)


Methods of joining:
    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.


Commentators:
    [WG] Robespierre,
    [WM] Malamute,
    [WM] Szeweningen,

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.



FAQs

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)

Legends:
    Heyheuhei: 13 wins 1 tie
    Timinator: 13 wins 1 tie
    Gnuffone: 8 wins
    Szeweningen: 7 wins
    Malamute: 7 wins
    Gangnam: 5 wins
    Myhand: 4 wins


Congrats to the winners and legends!

Nice to see there's continued interest. :)

It's quite possible I will be able to livestream the 1v1 tomorrow! (not guaranteed, but at the moment it's likely that I can)

The 2v2 is unlikely, but we'll see.

Good to see that it is more formal this week instead of last week just being a lobby without any prior announcement.

Also would be good to have Myth back to host it, so it can be commentated on again. :)

hedja - as for templates - I am always open for suggestions, but i don't want the monotony of playing the same one over and over.. i said that those two were suggested by gnuffone, but i wrote in the first post that i want you guys to suggest templates, and we will choose something from it. i have to much real-life stuff to do now, so i cannot think to much about templates, games, maps etc..

Seahawks, and Greybeard, you will be invited.

Big thanks to [V.I.W] Awesomeguy!
he agreed to make the tournament from his account according to our decisions.
(mythonian might not be able to, gnuffone's on vacation so he cannot do it because it would break the vacation, and i am not a member so i cannot technically make a tournament)

we are still waiting for all of you to suggest templates. If nobody shows up, gnuffone's picks are gonna be played this week.

Slight change...

Instead of being able to stream Saturday, it's actually going to end up being Sunday that I can stream instead. :/

(although I will need to leave around 8:00 PM GMT, so it may be cut short.


what's the streaming setup?


To be able to stream with good quality and framerate, you'd need at least ~2 mbps upload speed (www.speedtest.net), as well as a quad-core processor and some other decent specs, alongside the software itself. Hit me up on Skype if you want to discuss it more. :)

Malamute I can also create the tournament if you tell me when to and I am online.

however I am fine with Gnuff's templates, cannot think of others which are less played.

Season V settings seem quite good for 1v1 and they aren't popular.

http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?TemplateID=214096

I don't think they were used even once for a Live Tournament yet.

I think there are other seasons which are more interesting and fun to play than Season v, and I think we have played it on the tournies, perhaps only a couple of times though, unless I am getting it confused with a different tournament.

It has been used already? I don't remember playing it at all. Must have missed it.

Which other seasons do you mean? All the others were Medium Earth, Modified Medium Earth, 1 Heavy Earth and 1 East Asia & Oceania. If we are going for variety, changing the map is the primary thing to do.

Hi, I'm the guy that ended up hosting today's stream. I'd really appreciate feedback! This was my first time ever hosting, and I'm sure there's all sorts of ways I can improve both as a "commentator" (who should just back off and let the other more knowledgeable players talk) and on the technical end. Did the video stream okay? Could you hear everyone? Are there ways I (and ps and Malamute) could improve the way we go over games and comment on them?

After today I have an immense respect for Mythonian. The amount of time and effort he puts into the streams is amazing. Honestly I don't know how he does it.

On the technical side, all I did was broadcast a cap of my screen and dragged windows in and out. Very rough around the edges. If anyone knowledgeable could suggest logistical improvements that would be awesome. Also if you have any tricks for using Open Broadcaster Software, or getting XSplit to work (it was not communicating with twitch.tv properly), I'd appreciate it.

I don't think there's any way I could do this *every* week, but I'd be happy if there were a group of stream hosts who could alternate and host on different days. This way we can keep the streams alive even without Mythonian :)

And a huge bunch of thanks to Malamute who helped me set up the stream, and to ps and Malamute for providing excellent commentary. Until next time :D

Motocross, Malamute has been given access to awesomeguy's account, so he can make the tournies exactly how he wants to, more convenient.

Pushover, could you guys try to fix ps? He was really quiet and for some really weird reason i only heard him in my left headphone.


Good stream and tournament :) Myth is back for today's one though

Ah I just realised you are correct, for some reason the person who introduced at the beginning said he was Pushover, so I got really confused :D I played on a bit to where I forgot who Pushover was and heard his response :D

Also sorry pushover for that ;) I didn't hear Fridge say your name very clearly, my audio is bad, and we have more than 100 viws, so I had no idea. :)
