I recommend playing a game or two to practice :)

Also, the up-to-date template has no recon cards and 5 more wastelands than in that sample game if you want to practice the "official" template.

Edit:
The "official" template: https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?TemplateID=757105

Start the stream 30 minutes early and explain the template in detail. Otherwise, the WGL is going to be comical :P

Will WGL ever let us vote for a template again? Seems like it would be good to have a template that more than just a few have played before. I don't trust Beren.

Jefferspin: sure, we can have it for next week, the thing is there usually arent any suggestions, so i just ask on the skype channel a few hours before posting the thread if anyone has any ideas.

So if anyone has any good template suggestions for next week, feel free to post them and we'll consider them or have a poll if we can't unanimously decide on one.

Can I play this season for a laugh? It's basically a by (skip round) for whoever plays me first round but it will do some good for me when I start ladders.

everyone knows real top players don't really need to play a template to understand if it's strategic or not ;) just rate it as if thinking if you would join it on open games or not, just based on settings ;)

I'm new but +Infinity to jeff, I would want to choose my template.

When would we vote though - I think Mon-Thurs, that leaves 2 days for prep.

Exactly 1 day left!

Also, as a side note, in 9 years time there is a Total Solar Eclipse passing directly through the New England in America, who would come for a WL meetup?

'til tomorrow then?

I might struggle tonight anyway, it's fine in-game though, if you can load the page then you can play the game.

It tends to come and go. It usually lasts a short while and then clears up for a longer while. If the Twitch stream is independent of WL servers (should be?) then you could do the stream itself fine. Just warn players that sometimes they may have to refresh their game pages if their orders don't submit immediately.

I don't think it actually has to do with heavy traffic, as this was also occurring late last night when few people were active in the forums (and, I presume, also few people playing the game). I think it's because of some recent updates Fizzer made behind the scenes that inadvertently introduced a bug/design flaw that is putting more pressure than usual on the servers. So, I have a hunch that a tournament should go fine, as long as people playing are made aware of the issue ahead of time so they know that they just have to refresh their game pages if they run into hard problems submitting orders. I could be wrong, and maybe it's worse than I think, but my best guess is it should be okay, with occasional hiccups.

Yeah, usually updates are a common thing to cause downtime, but not when it's Fizzer doing it. I have yet to see Fizzer do an update in which something broke to cause the game or the site to slow down/be unplayable to an extent. He carefully tests out his updates before bringing them live. It might be that something in the server has just gone haywire, kinda like how we had the clan icons just suddenly wiped one day, I'm imagining it's an issue sorta like that.

Maybe you could just change it so there's an extra minute of banked boot time, or turn off auto-boot or something like that. It's really only a problem (sometimes, and briefly, like maybe 30s max) when you try to submit orders.

20 minute banked boot time!

The servers seem pretty on and off so far, I don't know if it is worth the risk.
