    So I clearly will only play a tournament match if me and my opponent can find a fitting timeframe.

    Indeed, so I’m hoping a week between rounds is flexible enough.

    If it’s not too late sign me up.

    I would like to sign up for this IGN:

    Both in, check main website, and also match listings, and google group and Steam group.

    I am cleverly disguised as Nodor in the steam group for the tournament. Send me a message with times that work for you in either that group or via this forum.

    Btw i want to clarify some things.
    1) What should we do if both players want to be host? (minor 1turn advantage)
    2) I think there is mistake in russian rule translation. As far i can understand rules…if u played human rogue…next game u cant pick human and u cant pick rogue. So you are forced pick both new class and new race?
    In russian it is translated like…if u played human rogue…u are forced pick new class or new race…so human sorcer or goblin rogue is still available.

    if u played human rogue…next game u cant pick human and u cant pick rogue. So you are forced pick both new class and new race?

    This is correct.

    In russian it is translated like…if u played human rogue…u are forced pick new class or new race…so human sorcer or goblin rogue is still available.

    Nope. Not sure how that came about.

    Whatever race or class you pick, for your next match, you cannot pick that race and class.

    If in doubt, refer to the English rules.

    1) What should we do if both players want to be host? (minor 1turn advantage)

    Toss a coin! This has literally never ever come up lol. No fair way to judge it, unless…maybe, whoever goes first (I’m assuming this is for classic turns btw) concedes the right to pick the map settings to the other player?

    Aren’t the brackets generated fully randomly by challonge already? .. great! If in doubt: The player who happened to be on top. Problem solved. And I can even keep my coins! 😉

    #207797

    @ Xaneorath, work for me.

    Is anyone here on GoG? It’s necessary, as I imagine the Steam Group people (which is 2/3rds the entire list) are on the open beta patch, and it’s not known when that becomes an official patch, so the thorny question arises of which version to use.

    The open beta patch is obviously the more desirable (nerfs to Tigrans and Dwarves UG) but if you’re on Gog, then you;re on GoG.

    I did ask this a few posts ago, and noone answered that they were on Gog…

    so, if you are on Gog, the match will be played with 1.55, and if you are not, then open beta.

    Well so… some of free 2round players got even more advantage with 1-turn…

    #207887

    Well, we already have our first match played!

    Find out more by visiting the Dragon’s Head Inn.

    Also, I very much doubt anyone is going to join in the next 6 hrs, so I’m going to start the tournament on Challonge.com, so people can report their matches and the match maker can do its thing.

    I’d honestly have prefered to play my 1st match. 😉 But anyways..

    It turns out my suggestion doesn’t work after all, since after rechecking the brackets it turned out, that it always sorts the opponents with the lower entry number on top.
    Which would seem to me as the order the opponents were added.
    Well. It’s a rare case you mentioned after all. Let’s just hope it won’t happen.. or we would have to get back to the toss-coin-idea. 😛

    Actualy.. the more I look at the bracketing now, the less does challonge seem like a good system to manage tournaments for me, since the randomness of the matchmaking is strongly reduced in favour of the entry order.

    I just realized, for example, how alyra (entry number 10) got just matched up with our last entry Sjow (55), while a fair and neutral matchmaking system should’ve reshuffled bracketing randomly whenever a new opponent is added, and should in no case take entry order into account for the pairings. Also apparently all those who got their free match where just the first ones in the list (entries 1 – 10).

    edit: Actualy, never mind the last comment. After rechecking on the lists from the tournament page and this board topic, I realized that the names are different. So it seems like the ordering challonge uses isn’t connected to the order of entries after all.

    Here to confirm Fakir_Faler was victorious in our match.

    I’ll need class/race combos that you both used. Fakir was Dwarf Rogue, correct?

    @ Xaneorath, I think there was an option to completely reshuffle every bracket, that I didn’t use.

    Wish we could watch the games leading up to the AQ winner, looks like a really tough patch in the bracket. Would be fun to watch.

    Unfortunately it’s not realistic to demand that every player invest in decent recording software for this:S

    I lost my game. Not sure if I should report here or not.

    #208448

    Just confirming victory agains Neckvein. GG! Where should I write after-action report?

    Here is fine, but I might start a new thread.

    Google group or Steam group is probably best, as this thread is getting long.

    Or send it to me on Steam.

    What race/class did you guys use?

    #208631

    Yuriohs, are you up for our first round game this weekend? I didn’t see you in the steam group but I should be free any day this weekend.

    I tried a full freeware software called “Open Broadcaster Software” for it. It is intended to be used for streaming, but can also be used just to make offline records.
    So far it looks really good, and the videos recorded are worthwhile! Sadly my laptop can’t keep up and with the current settings it becomes unplayable for me, if I stream the match as well.
    Still Ill continue to play a bit around with the settings. If someone else tries around with the software, feel free to chat up with me about a good way to broadcast our games! 🙂
