Hello and welcome to Week #14. This week, I did not feel like hosting a 2v2 tournament. Since I'm organizing these events, I can make choices like this. Since I'm inclined to give it a try, we will be doing 3v3. I need 8 teams for this, so please don't disappoint me. Also, we will be running auto-boot @ 15 minutes, so get your typical picking strategy down before entering the tournament. Please post your interest for the 3v3 tournament in this thread. For 1v1, we will be running EA&O on strat 1v1 settings. They're good settings. :)
Again, I apologize for missing another Coffee Break, I was ill and felt like the four horseman of the apocalypse moved into my stomach. I feel much better now and will be hosting on Sunday ^^.
Also, Szeweningen designed a drinking game. In no way do I do endorse this because the chance of death by alcohol poisoning is very high. Perhaps the AHoL members will survive.
1) take a shot every time szew says "actually"
2) take a shot every time Mythonian says yup
3) take a shot every time dunga's word is incomprehensible :)
4) take 2 shots when something "makes no sense"
5) take 1 shot when lolowut says uhh
6 and final) take 3 shots when there's a possible misclick!
^-- This is a prescription of death.
Here's the templates for this week:
East Asia & Oceania Strat 1v1
Europe NL NC
Big thanks to all of you for watching and helping out and good luck this week!

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. We also have 2 official support commentators named Reza and x. 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.
