Congrats to Dunga for finally not being 2nd place in 1v1! He is only 1 win away from going onto my little legend wall. The final game for the 2v2 tournament was not correct due to a boot. It was replayed and can be seen here: http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=3711033
Sorry about no Coffee Break. I'm not feeling well, I have sinusitis which is a sinus infection. Really, it's not too bad, but talking for a long period of time will kill my throat. We'll see if I can make it this Sunday.
The Ultimate Teamplayer has started! Here's a link to see the matchups: http://www.scribd.com/doc/120210709/The-Ultimate-Teamplayer-Schedule
You can go ahead and bet on the records of everyone involved, maybe I'll throw in a membership to whoever can guess it on this thread.
Anyways, I'm trying to figure out a day to do this, and I would like to have a good commentator on. Maybe someone involved, or just people coming in sporadically, but I plan for it to be sometime during the week the same time as my Coffee Break. If you're interested my skype is still Lolowut. If you're scared of me you can add Mythonian at Mythonian.
The template we're using in that competition is Szeuropa. Looking forward to covering it, and looking forward to playing it. (although some of my match-ups scare me.)
Here's the templates for this week:
1v1: Strategic 1v1, it's the built-in one. Ladder settings.
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.
