A couple of things, I'll try not to bore you. No longer will we be hosting only 1 event per week! By next week we'll be hosting a multitude of things, so lemme run by you some of the events you can look forward to watching!
Live Classes: Dunga and Szeweningen have both confirmed that they will be hosting streamed live classes! Times and dates of these classes are still being discussed and will probably be released on the forum.
Lolowut's Coffee Break: I will be hosting an informative live event. It'll be a segment on what's going on in Warlight, including some possible updates and bug fixes I catch word of. Then after the news, I will be inviting people to play a real-time casual game with me. I'll be interviewing them as we play. The first guest is a surprise, and the date/time has not been set yet. Most probably going to be Tuesdays from 4pm-5pm US/Central. (I know you've always wanted to listen about the divorce issues between Gui and Szeweningen in real time ;))
Those two events have been confirmed and will be done. If you have any ideas of events please contact me.
Now that we have multiple hosts and multiple commentators, I have split the tournaments to each separate day. The first streamed live event only had Myth and Kcscrag commentating, we've come a long way since then. Soon we will be creating joint youtube and twitch accounts. Until that's set up the streams will be hosted on either http://twitch.tv/lolowut
Shenanigans: Also for this 1v1 tournament, both Dunga and Szew will be commentating as partners for a bit. After the tournament, there will be a poll on who has the sexier voice. Feel free to debate that now.
Times & Dates: 12:00PM US/Central @ October 13th, 2012 (1v1)
12:00PM US/Central @ October 14th, 2012 (2v2)
Methods of joining:
The easiest way to join this tournament is to post here. You will be thrown into my invite list directly, and be thrown into the total count of participants. This will help me gauge how many people will be playing and how big to make the tournament.
There are two other ways to join. I will be making a "Lobby" to test whether or not the participants signed up are active. This will show up in the tourney listings. So either you can be invited to it, or join it outright.
Even if you post here and get thrown on my invite list your spot is not guaranteed. You have to prove to me you're on at that time. I will be inviting everyone I know on Warlight into this "Lobby", to guarantee your spot you must join that tourney.
You may be disqualified from ever entering the tournament again if you:
1. Fail to join the actual tournament.
2. Get booted during the actual tournament.
It is up to the host's discretion.
Currently, Mythonian, Kcscrag, and I are the hosts. We have 2 official expert commentators named Dunga and Szeweningen. If you're interested in becoming a commentator (especially useful when one of us doesn't feel up to doing it), invite me to a game or add me on skype at Lolowut. You must have skype in order to become a commentator, I'm not willing to play around with unfamiliar programs. Only things you'll have to prove to me is that you have enough knowledge of 1v1 and in some cases 2v2 in order to accurately analyze a game, and not have a boring voice.
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. I'm not willing to set up byes and odd brackets and host the tourney through invited games. Sorry, just the way I run it.
Q: Who hosts the stream or tournament if none of the hosts(Lolowut, Mythonian, Kcscrag) can?
A: Anyone can host it. I'm sure if I'm unable to host it I'd be willing to give you tips on how to do it. The stream requires a great computer, so be careful.
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 I on skype. Me @ Lolowut and Myth @ Mythonian. We both have skype up during the tourney and can get your thoughts conveyed.
Q: I signed up, but I'm not getting invited. Why?
A: If you were disqualified from entry ever again, I've invited you to a game and informed you. Plead your case, I may be willing to let you back in.
