This topic is dedicated for the Tour templates.
You can post here any Tour template related remarks, proposals, wishes, etc.

The next three posts will be continuously edited.
  • In the first one, I list the decided four Grand Slam, eight Masters and twelve 500 Series events templates.
    If you have any remarks or proposals regarding with them (replacing or change only some settings), you can write it in this topic.
    I will edit this post if will be any changes, so you can always check this post for the actual major events (Grans Slam & Masters) and 500 Series templates (or use the google sheet link below).

  • In the second one, I list the 250 Series event templates for the actual and the next month.
    In the first days of every month, I will remove the past month and post the next month templates (choosing them from the template list in the third (next) post), so in this post, you always will find only 2 months, the actual and the next one.
    If you have any remarks or proposals regarding with them (replacing or change only some settings), you can write it in this topic.
    I will edit this post if will be any changes, so you can always check this post for the actual templates (or use the google sheet link below).

  • In the third one, I list all the proposed templates so far
    Grouping (3 groups: WR, SR and extra settings (MA, LD, commanders, etc.)) and giving them a serial for make it easier to refer to them.
    I will always choose the 250 Series event templates from this list.
    You can post your new template proposals into this topic anytime, if it is enough strategical, I will add it to the template list, editing this post (important: please always give me game link too!)
    You can ask too that I should remove a template from this list if you think it is not enough good for any events.
You can find here all the exact schedules and the templates:

Remark:
You always check the exact tournament template settings before you start to play on a Tour event! ;)

The four Grand Slam templates:
The eight Masters templates:
The twelve 500 Series templates:
The major events (the 4 Grand Slams and the 8 Masters) always start the first week of every months, the 500 Series events always start the third week of every months.

These templates are permanents in every year, only change if the majority want to replace or modify some settings.

You can easy refer to a template from this list if you use the letter of the template type (G->WR, H->SR, C->Extra settings) then the serial number of the template.
For example to refer to the Old 1v1 Ladder, you can use G01, or refer to Battle Islands V you can use H02, or refer to Sumo use C08.
This list will be continuously extended.

Some words about the background of my major and 500 Series events template choices.

The popularity of the templates was the primary concern.
I simple chose the 12 templates for major events, with the most points (given by you) from this topic:
https://www.warlight.net/Forum/174165-awp-world-tour-12-major-event-templates

The popularity was important for the twelve 500 Series templates too, I tried to choose the most populars, used the topic above and the official ladder poll (https://www.warlight.net/Forum/151334-official-ladder-poll-results).

But in addition to this popularity aspect, I always use my loved tennis ATP World Tour aspects too :)
I mean, I tried to implement many ATP World Tour concepts into the AWP World Tour.

Started with the Grand Slams.
In the tennis, one of the biggest performance if somebody can do the Grand Slam (= win all the four Grand Slam events). Because the differencies of the courts (Hard, Grass, Clay) it is a very hard challenge, only a few really great players were able to do it so far!

This is why the variety was the most important factor, and not simple chose the 4 most popular templates. Ok, the popularity was an important factor too (this is why I didn't choose LD template), but, for example, the variety for Grand Slams were more important than for Masters.

Very few players love both the old and the new 1v1 Ladders. This is good! I mean, both templates are very populars (this is the most important thing), but divisive too (just like the clay or grass courts in tennis).
The MA template is not a habitual for most players, need different skills a bit (it can be the clay surface :) ).
And the Greece template maybe is not so simple than Battle Islands or Guiroma (at least for me, I can easy understand the last two, while I still can't understand well the Greece :D )

Therefore if somebody will be able to do the Grand Slam in AWP World Tour, that will be a really great performance imo.

I tried to translate the tennis surface into the Warlight AWP World Tour.
So the SR templates will be the Hard courts (the most tennis courts are hard)
The WR templates will be the Grass courts (the luck is the Grass factor :) )
Finally, the Clay courts will be the templates with extra settings (like LD, MA, Commanders, LFD, no split, not normal fogs, kill rates, bonuses, etc.)
This is the grouping method (G-Grass, H-Hard, C-Clay) in the previous post too.

On the ATP World Tour there are seasons, like Clay, Grass seasons.
My plan (if the majority can accept it :) ), there will be seasons in AWP World Tour too.
  • After the Guiroma Masters (first week of March) until the Poland Masters (first week of June) will be the "Clay" season (using templates with extra settings).
    It means three major and three 500 Series events, plus (depends on the Mondays in the given year) seven 250 Series events (25% of the Tour events)
  • After the Poland Masters (first week of June) until before the Treasure Map Masters (the last week of July) will be the "Grass" season (using WR templates).
    It means one major and two 500 Series events, plus (depends on the Mondays in the given year) five 250 Series events (15% of the Tour events)
  • From the Treasure Map Masters (first week of August) until the Guiroma Masters (first week of March) will be the "Hard" season (using SR templates).
    It means eight major and seven 500 Series events, plus (depends on the Mondays in the given year) sixteen 250 Series events (60% of the Tour events)
The choosen templates in above posts are based on these seasons already.

Another thing that the end of the year the ATP Tour move to Asia, according to this, I chose asian major and 500 Series event templates :D

These (using tennis aspects) is my additional fun, but if the majority want to change anything I am totally open for it, because this series is for everyone's fun, and I am only one of you ;)

It looks great! I love all the thought you've put into it. My only complaint would be that I don't think Post-Melt Antarctica is a very good template and think China (H09) would be better as a major. Just my opinion though :)

@MoD: you are welcome :D

@Beren: well, I am open to replace the two templates if the majority want.
I did that decisions because Post-Melt Antartica was rated a bit better than China (but very close)
But I ask the community, do I replace the Post-Melt Antartica Masters to China real-time settings?

I added Sri Lanka (H24).
Gelvien Islands already was added (I think you proposed earlier too), it is the G04.

And do you mean that I should replace the Post-Melt Antartica Masters (not Grand Slam :P) events by China (real-time ladder) template?

If yes, already two votes (Beren and you) for replacing.
If no more votes until the end of October, I will replace them (and start the Masters on the first Monday of November on the China RT template)

Thanks for adding these templates! No,I actually mean that I would like China as a Grand-Slam tourney and put Post-Melt Antarctica as Masters(or maybe 500 series because there are lots of other interesting templates for Masters!)

Hey Pana, check my second post here, Post-Melt already is a Masters event :P

And if China is a Grand Slam, what do you propose, which one I should remove then? :O

Ahh,ok.Well,I think Greece doesn't fit to Grand Slam.It is a great map generally,but it has already been played at 500 series whereas China hasn't been played yet.I am ok with Post-Melt ;)

Well, if you check, you can see that many of the present Masters templates already played in the beginning of the Tour, in the introduction phase (Battle Islands V -500 Series, Guiroma). But that was an intro of the Tour, not important the templates, so we now duplicate them (but next year will be only Masters (or Grand Slam regarding to the Greece) templates).

So China or Post-Melt is better for you as a Masters event?
The other can be 500 Series event :D

Ok, because nobody post here other opinion I replaced the Post-Melt Antartica Masters event with the China 500 Series event (second post updated).

I updated the google Event schedule docs too with all the decided events (link in the first post)
If you use Muli's script, you can see the updated Events in the right side of every AWP World Tour topics and mails.

There is an event order change in this year, the Red Dead Redemption will be the 500 Series event in November, instead of Qina as there is in my second post, this is because Qina 500 was already in September (next year will be replaced back)

I forgot to post here that no any 250 Series template for December because on the AWP World Tour will be 50 events per years (nice round number :) ), so the last two weeks will be Tour holiday (meaning no new events started on those Mondays).

There will be only the Masters event in the first week, and the 500 Series event in the second week.
You can find those templates above in the second post of this topic.
