FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  • Q0: What is this tournament series, called AWP?

      First of all, I would like to clarify a misunderstanding.

      The AWP is not the name of this series, but the name of the "organization" which organizes this community event. You can read more about AWP here (skip the off-topic part ;) ):
      https://www.warlight.net/Forum/156041-awp-association-warlight-professionals

      The right name of this series is AWP World Tour. Or World Tour.
      Or simple this: The Tour.


      And this is only one of the community events which organized by AWP.
      Ok, actually the only one, but will be more :P


  • Q1: Ok, so what is this tournament series, called AWP World Tour?



  • Q2: I don't have enough patience to understand how the whole system works… but I love the Rankings, and I feel I am strong enough to conquer it!
    What should I do for this?


      Ok, then let me to be your agent :)

      My advice depends on your freetime.

      • If you have a lot of time for playing Warlight
        Then my answer is simple, join to all the 50 events per year, and do your best. That's all.
        But one more thing.
        The Tour events are filling relatively quickly (6-24 hours) so you will need a fast join skill ;)

        The invitations are sending out on every Wednesday between 04:00-06:00 am CET, so you should online and check invitations on these days.
        Other possibility that you receive a Wild Card, which only mean Monday morning (CET) invitations instead of the Wednesday ones, so you have +2 days for joining.
        If you were very good in other community events, you will receive Wild Cards immediately for sure. Or if you are good on The Tour, you will get as well, after a time. Or you can simple request one if you can convince me ;)

      • If you have limited time for playing Warlight
        Then you should try to follow this event joining order (Rankings point of view):

        • Join to the four Grand Slams per year (first week of January, April, July, October)
          Simple because 8000 of the maximum 19000 points are come from these four events!
        • Join to the eight Masters 1000 events per year (first week of the rest 8 months)
          8000 of the maximum 19000 points are come from these 8 events.

        These 12 Tour events called major events. Or "mandatory" events (only Rankings point of view of course, and only because 16000 of the maximum 19000 points are come from these events!)

        And very important, that all the 12 event results above will be counted, but only the best 6 of 38 results will be counted from events below!

        • Join to the twelve 500 Series events per year (third week of every months)
          You can get max. 3000 of the 19000 maximum points from these events (if you win 6 of the 12 events). And a result from this section only counted if better than your 250 Series best six results.
        • Join to the twentysix 250 Series events per year (the rest weeks)
          You can get max. 1500 of the 19000 maximum points from these events (if you win 6 of the 26 events). And a result from this section only counted if better than your 500 Series best six results.

        Summary:
        Join to all the 12 major events. Try to join as many 500 Series events as you can. Join to the 250 Series events only if you very like the template or have enough time ;)

    • Q3: I don't have enough time to play even 12 single elimination tournaments per year, so I have no chance for good Rankings at all. /OR/ I think this Rankings is not correct. /OR/ I don't like any Rankings. /OR/ any other Rankings problems.
      Would you mind if I don't play on any Tour events at all because of this?


        Yes! :D

        Jokes aside, the Rankings is "only" an additional fun factor on the Tour.
        I think enough fun and a nice challenge to win a simple Tour event. Harder challenge (= better fun) try to win more than one Tour event (just check how few players can do this during 34 events! :O ) Or win a major Tour events (where your opponents usually play more focused way) is a hard one too.
        But simple playing againts good opponents in different templates forwarding in the brackets is very fun itself imo.

        So if you are in this situation then simple ignore the Rankings, but please don't ignore the whole Tour ;)

        Preferably check the Tour schedule here:
        https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Ao0SlM6Kv6CE1-Ha5mBIrI6nj4Uft2lMaE25qbXxWHs/pub?gid=648212339&output=html
        and you can choose one or more Tour events one year forward (the templates are constantly updated) which you are interested in.
        Then you just write me a message (PM or in any AWP topic) and I will invite you, even giving you a Wild Card if you were good in any other community events, so you will be as a guest star on the Tour ;)


    • Q4: How can I join to the Tour?

        I invite players to the Tour events based on my Invite list, which exaclty means my Friend list in Warlight.

        If you want to join to the Tour, you just simple have to write a short message to me (PM or in any AWP topic) and I will add you to my Invite list (=Friend list).
        After this, you will be invited to every Tour events!
        So if you want only get invitations to one or more exact but not to all events, write this request as well.

        There is a Tour event in every week.
        The invitations are sent on every Wednesday between 04:00-06:00 am CET.

        Except for the TOP100 (in case of major events) or TOP50 (in case of smaller events) and the Wild Carded players (40 players in major or 20 players in smaller events), because these 140 or 70 players will be invited on Monday mornings (+ 2 days for joining). These two additional days is an advance because the Tour events are filling relatively quickly (6-24 hours).
        If you were very good in other community events, you will receive Wild Cards immediately for sure. Or if you are good on The Tour, you will get as well, after a time. Or you can simple request one if you can convince me ;)


    • Q5: Hey, I never join to the Tour, nonetheless I am receiving your Tour event invitations, how?

        First of all I would like to say sorry if I am bothering you this way, and just write a short message to me (PM or in any AWP topic) and I will immediate remove you from my Invite list.

        In the beginning, for promotional purposes, I added all players from the better clans to my Invite list. And time to time, I update my Invite list with the new clan members of those clans. So this is how you've been part of the invitees. And sorry again, but I had no better idea for promotion :|

        Anyway, I plan to clean my Invite list soon (remove alts, inactive players, and not Tour oriented active players) but until then you can unsubscribe from the Tour anytime.


    • Q6: How can I unsubscribe from the Tour?

        You just simple have to write a short message to me (PM or in any AWP topic) and I will remove you from my Invite list.

        If you still want to be invited to one or more exact but not to all events, write this request as well.

        Of course, you can rejoin to the Tour anytime if you change your mind.
    To be continued.

    THE CONSTANT TEMPLATES

    The four Grand Slam templates:
    The eight Masters templates:
    The twelve 500 Series templates:
    These templates are permanents in every year, only change if the majority want to replace or modify some settings or a new popular template will be created for example.

    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.

    You can find the exact schedules of these events (plus the already chosen 250 Series events) here:
    https://www.warlight.net/Forum/262655-awp-world-tour-magazine?Offset=4
    or in the Event google docs:

    THE TEMPLATE CONCEPTS

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

    The popularity of the templates was the primary concern.
    So 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).

    (Edit: it was in the beggining, now we have a Template Panel (TOP7 ranked players) who can help manage the changes if new popular templates come)

    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.)

    On the ATP World Tour there are seasons, like Clay, Grass seasons.
    So there are seasons in AWP World Tour too.
    • After the Guiroma Masters (first week of March) until the Elitism Africa 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 Elitism Africa 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)
    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 ;)

    Cheers,
    Ekstone
