Now, for some reason, this thread's been moved to Off-Topic, which makes no sense.

Anyhow, we've more than enough people who volunteered for the first game/tournament, which is great!

Teams will be random, but so far, these are the people who've volunteered:

Me(Zack105)
MightySpeck
GeneralPE
[wolf]japan77
tomjh
lunchboy360
Fleecemaster
Oilspotter
Adolf
Sleepy
Semicedevine
Mister Kl
ACMFatih1899
TeamGuns
[WOLF] Navigator
HankyPinky
Martyrose
j willy 47
Amazing
Anarchist
Darth player



As you can see, we've got ~20 people, more than we need. Because of this, we might have to make two games at the same time, with ten per game?

I'm not sure, but we'll figure it out.

I figure we've got about a week till the template's done, MAX.

Thanks for all your support!

PS- any preferences for the next map/game? This one's going to be Spain

I'd love to do it by clan.

Otherwise I don't find it much worthwhile.

Guys, I'd rather do it by clan, to be honest.

BUT-
Too many Wolves volunteered ;)
And some people don't have clans.

HOWEVER, if you guys still want to do it by clan, could you help me get it organized?

Fleece, could you head the Wolves team- get 3 active people, and try to get one between 30-40, one 40-50, and one 50+. We need to make it even.

Semicedevine-In the link at the top of this thread is the old discussion. I believe Fleece listed the clans which are participating- could you contact them and see if they're up for it? Again, the level guidelines apply.

Anyone else, does your clan want to do this?


Also, what do you think of 2 Wolves teams? Or will this unbalance the game?



EDIT:

So far, possibilities include:

  • Wolves
  • CORP
  • AOE
  • MSF
  • Clanless
  • Hydra
  • Fifth Column




So far, none of the clans have enough people confirmed

Your edit is basically what I put in the other thread, I would suggest not rushing it too much, we only got a lot of Wolves because I posted about it in our clan forum, I think if you 100% make it clan based then the other clans will step up, it's tricky when it's in the air like this, I don't really mind what you decide though, but we should take our time.

I can help by contacting clans and trying to help them organise a crew, managed to get tojam and Death for the Corp team so far.

I really like the idea of a long campaign with each match effecting another larger one at the end, which is pretty much your idea right?

We could use the clanless, or the singles of a clan to bulk out other teams. I'd rather only have 1 Wolf team, but there are so many it would kind of be a shame not to have 2 teams, we'll just have to make sure to play fair.

There are enough wolves for 3 teams, lol

I dunno if having more than one Wolves team is a good idea- ruins the idea of a clan tournament.

Anyhow, we're limiting it to 5 teams of 3.

Yeah, we'll have to figure out what to do with the Wolves.


Maybe, we could do scenarios with more players per team, but we'd have to restart the template...


I think the best idea is to just start as is.

We'll keep the list of Clanless open, but if we're doing it by clan, they most likely won't play in the first trial run. Fleece, could you narrow the Wolves down to 3? The rest'll get to play, but not in this first tournament.

proposal to fix team issue

8 teams
-ydra
-AOE
-Corp
-MSF
-FCC
-Wolves( team 1 )
-Wolves( team 2 )
-clanless

there will be 2 wolf players and 2 clanless players left without a team to play on

these 4 players will then join up with the clans with vacant positions

even though they will be playing with another clan this will create 8 teams of 4 players per team

the level guide line that zack wants to follow should be abandoned ( a players skill level should not be based on its level )

also we need at least one more players to fill the last vacant spot on one of the teams in order to have all the teams completed

Adolf- I think that defeats the purpose of clan teams- if all the wolves want to play, we'll just do random teams.

i think for this time since its a trial run that random teams would be better

after seeing how the trial goes and revising any mistakes then we can work on implementing a clan system into this

right now we have 26 players

if we can find at least 4 more players then we would have 30 players which is 10 teams of 3

this sticks to your idea of 3 per team

also may i ask how many slots are in each senerio or is it just random starting positions on the map then the team who wins takes that country

It's a custom scenario fit for five teams, so unless we set up two games, that's far too many players.


Oh, and if we're still going by clan, not only does this mean we can try and split up the wolves so they play in separate games, but I've also found a third MSF to fill the slot.

Don't worry about too many Wolves, I can always drop us down to first come first served, or trial by fire if need be, they will understand, or I will make them :)

We could always try out an example game with random teams, just to double check who is serious about playing and iron out any bugs before we start for reals? (Or 2 concurrent example games if there are too many, etc)

How's that for an idea?

Or we could have two games of 5 teams:

Game 1:
Hydra
AOE
Corp
Wolves A
Clanless A

Game 2:
MSF
FCC
Wolves B
Clanless B
(One more clan slot)

We could even randomize/rotate the team split each game too (whilst keeping the Wolves and clanless teams seperate)

Just some more ideas, I don't mind what the organisers decide :)

I think that for the first run, clans don't matter. This is to get all the wrinkles out of the template. After we see if it works, we can expand it. More teams, bigger maps, and organized by clan. I'd hate to turn any volunteers away, but it seems that we have to right now.

HOWEVER, if this works, we'll definitely do it by clan. Fleece, you can't have two Wolves teams in the same game, sorry :(
YOu can rotate them out between games, though.

I'm confused, I don't understand why are you saying sorry...

Are you saying clans don't matter, or that they do?

If you're randomising it then there won't be any Wolves teams...

Maybe you missed my post above about keeping any Wolves teams (or other) seperate?

Fleece- what I said is that for this game, clans won't matter.


However, if this trial run goes well, we'll have more games- two tourneys, like you said, with the aforementioned teams

So, seeing as this is a trial run, we'll just pick random people.

I'm not playing. I'd rather just watch, see how it plays out and begin thinking of how to make the next game even better. I might join the trial game just for fun though, if we're doing the clanless trial run as Zack suggests.
