I'm predicting a 61-over-4 upset here =)
Okay, not really
|21/03/2010 20:38:08 Re:3rd Annual Tournament|
i have a general question illustrated by the example above from the other tournament thread(chilly is a mate of mine):
how long are we supposed to wait for our opponents again? or put another way, how long until you are declared winner by the organisers? vwnumber is a trial player and (s)he currently plays 4 games. (s)he's online right now, but doesn't seem to check the forums and all his/her game chats are private, so it's quite difficult to get in touch...

|I'm in the same situation with serciocengizo. If you're reading this Mr S., pls free a slot|

|i opened free slots for the tournament and waiting for your invitation..|
|22/03/2010 15:05:08 Re:3rd Annual Tournament|
|Shul - If they don't have space free after 3 days you can move on - maybe give longer due to weekends. Esp. if your next round is available after that time - you are the winner and should advance|
|22/03/2010 20:20:57 Re:3rd Annual Tournament|
|if you 'move on' post a note in the results thread so i can update the status posting.|

Couple of map suggestions for the later rounds:
http://weewar.com/map/42343 Shallow waters 3, I think this is a good 1 v 1 map
http://weewar.com/map/37700 The Island, by Stirling.. This one takes a long time to get started, but it's a balanced and fun map.
Last but not least, this was a map Vagus created a while back, this one is a big naval battle, but lots of fun also:
Let me know what you guys think
|23/03/2010 01:40:48 Re:3rd Annual Tournament|
stirlings island turns into a battlelines slugfest with two equal players, no?
|23/03/2010 01:50:09 Re:3rd Annual Tournament|
dunno. never played bu appears to be balanced at a first glance

You know I hate to disagree with GD, my mentor in digital death, but i have been noticing of late that Whatyousay's version of Shallow Waters may not in fact be balanced. Blue's first turn advantage allows them to storm up the right side of the map and put red on the serious defensive, which is the wrong place to be on this map. I had been wondering about this, after beating Riipperi, Elsirad and others as blue, but had it confirmed when Jeye refused a recent rated invite and said "this map is blue biased". I therefore offered MOOooo peace in our game there, where I had once again stormed up the right side and was on the way to a quick victory...
What do folks think? If someone could suggest balancing solutions I would be happy, as it is a GREAT map.
The Island, not so much. Balanced yes, but long and grueling, especially between well matched players. The middle of the map BB defensive option makes capping on offense very challenging against a skilled opponent.
I like your last suggestion best Mr. Death. Even though you totally owned me there recently

|I agree with the above commenters on The Island - balanced map but games take a long time between roughly balanced opponents.|
|23/03/2010 04:53:11 Re:3rd Annual Tournament|
|Thanks for the suggestions well appreciated - too much water and not enough land on the watery maps - The island works but is slow - which would be better - rounds 3 and 4 where there are more matches but a wider gap in skill or rounds 5 and 6 where there will be fewer matches but more closely rated opponents?|

vwnumber3 and entregreeneur are trial accounts and full up on games. i've posted a note to all the other blue players to start their games. It's up to the tourney mods, but I'd say if those games aren't started by Wednesday AM, that the lower ranked player should invite the higher ranked player.
i'm not in favor of the island in either event since it may boil down to someone getting bored. if that's the case use Niki's Under the Influence where stalemates are harder to find.
|23/03/2010 13:12:27 Re:3rd Annual Tournament|
|Yeah, have been trying to invite entregreeneur but he's not been online over the weekend. He's logged in now, but still has 4+ games. I'll keep trying - don't want to go through on a pass|
