USA vs. THE WORLD
TBD and BALL Championships

To coincide with the end of the first ladder season I am going to set up the first tournament for the best of the best to duke it out to finally decide who is better at Altitude, the USA or THE WORLD!

The format will be simple and will follow these rules:


Each team will be composed of the top 5 (TBD) and 6 (BALL) ratings on the respective ladder for the USA and any other country for THE WORLD.
The scores used to decide the rankings will be the scores at 8PM EST on April 15th, which is the end of the ladder season.
If a player does not wish to participate, can't make the time, doesn't show up, then it will fall to the next highest score on the ladder.
It will be a best of three series for both the TBD and Ball modes.
The maps played will be the 3 maps with the highest played percentage on the ladder for both TBD and Ball. I will announce these maps as the ladder closes.
The maps will be played in the order of their play percentage. There is no voting or vetoing maps.


The matches will be played on April 24th, which is a week after the ladder season ends. The BALL matches will occur at 10AM ET (2PM GMT) and the TBD matches will occur at 11AM ET (3PM GMT).

Servers:

USA vs. WORLD - BALL - 1400 GMT
USA vs. WORLD - TBD - 1500 GMT

So gear up and get your rankings as high as you can to ensure you represent your side of the battle!

Commence the trash talk / flaming of USA or THE WORLD! Predictions welcome as well!

1st - Asteroids (23.27%)

Anything happens in ball ladder. Regardless though, considering the amount of skill in ball ladder.. although probably not the best, the top 6 will definitely be good enough to serve.

lol. Better find some earlier times :s

nesnl
04-01-2010, 07:00 AM
Well we can do whatever you guys want. I have it now so that the games will be played the day after the ladder ends. If you want we can postpone the games for a week so that players can decide if they can make it or not and there is time to finalize the teams for the matches. However, the Ball league is starting on Saturdays and APL is on Sundays, so thats why i scheduled the games for Friday. Anyone have any thoughts?

Also, the Ball games are going to be first as they are typically faster and then the TBD games will be afterwards, probably an hour later. That way if a player is on both teams they can participate in both.

I'll talk with CCN, we'll see if we can adjust the ball league games around these in order to do them saturday. Not promising anything though.
Just dropped to 5th place... 8 game losing streak at the end of the season=bad timing D:

04-01-2010, 09:41 AM
That's a nice idea - but are you kidding - at 6 and 7 pm EST? - this time totally doesn't pass to the world. In Europe I'll be 1am, in Asia about 5, in Australia smth like 7am...

The only fair time is between 12-3pm EST.

I think adding time between the end of the ladder and the matches would be a wise idea as the ladders can move pretty fast. So that people can see if they are concerned and as you said, be there or not.
Anyway, good promising event there :)

nesnl
04-01-2010, 09:13 PM
Okay, we will postpone the matchups for a week after the ladder ends to ensure that everyone knows who is going to participate and who will be available as alternates if someone else can't show up.

So the new date will be Saturday April 24th. I know that this is the same day as the Ball league so hopefully CCN and I can work something out so that the schedules on that day don't overlap. For now the tentative times will be 1PM for the Ball matches and 2PM for the TBD matches. I do this so that the times can more fair for everyone as opposed to a weekday schedule where the times would have to be adjusted.

I have updated the first post in this thread to reflect the starters and bench for each of the 4 respective teams. Please post in this thread if you are going to make the matches or not. They are merely fun matches and there is no pressure to be there. DO NOT ASSUME THAT WE KNOW YOU WILL SHOW UP. Post here and let us know you intend to play (or if you intend to not play). If you choose not to play I will take your name off the list and then move everyone else's name up on the list and add another bench player. If you are listed as a bench player when the matches roll around, feel free to show up and if for some reason one of the starters doesn't show up then you can play in the games.

The BALL games are going to be played at 12PM EST (4PM GMT) and the TBD games are going to be played at 1PM EST (5PM GMT) on April 24th. This is right before the scheduled matches for the Ball League. It is a Saturday.

I also posted the map list for each of the game types. Each match-up will be a best of 3 and the maps will be played IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY ARE LISTED (which is based off their played percentage).

I can make any time on the 24th. Shouldn't we have 6 starters and bench players for the ball match? It's not that big of a deal, we can have 6 starters and 4 bench players, but I just thought i'd point it out.

Sorry about that, was just me being tired and copying and pasting the list from the tbd and then replacing the names. I didn't think about the 6 players for the team. Ball matches will definitely still be 6v6. I will fix it and update the changes tomorrow.

Pretty sure that is incorrect. Every resource I can find shows that EST = GMT-4 currently. So for example, at the time of this post it is 11:16 EST and 15:16 GMT. That is a 4 hour difference.

Maimer - don't know mate, but 28.03 Europe including England also change time for daylight savings. England is definitely -1 hour from Germany (right now) and Germany (CET) is +6 EST.

EST was +4 GMT and +5 CET only for two weeks, now it's back to normal

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html - here it also shows it's +5 GMT (you just have to note, it shows GMT +1, EST -4, which makes 5 hours).

Well I dont really know what to tell you. Currently, it is 1:26PM EST (I live here and this is what all the clocks say too!) According to every world clock on the internet it says that it is 5:26PM GMT. So that is 4 hours difference. I really don't want to confuse people at this point.

I'm not really sure what is up with that site, but it's wrong. Or I'm reading it wrong, but either way, they need to clean it up.

To quickly clear this issue up...

As of this very moment in time, EST = GMT - 5.

I live in Arizona, but since we don't mess around with Daylight Savings Time (because we're awesome), I'm in the same time zone as the west coast, meaning that DST is in effect. BUT that does not affect the difference between GMT and EST because they both use DST.

So!

GMT = 5:13 AM (+/- 0)
EDT = 12:13 AM ( - 5)
PDT = 9:13 PM ( - 8)

AZ = 9:13 PM

EDIT: If DST was not in effect, this is what it would look like right now:

GMT = 4:13 AM
EST = 11:13 PM
PST = 8:13 PM

AZ = 9:13 PM

Hope that clears it up!

nesnl
04-17-2010, 02:55 PM
Alright, I think I see the confusion of time zones. When I say EST, I just mean the Eastern time zone in the US. Basically, we call it EST year round. So right now the time here is GMT-4. So don't worry, people are still gonna show up at the right time because the people who live in this time zone will know what time it is currently and everyone else can base it off GMT.

I will go ahead and move both matches back 2 hours and hopefully that will fix everyone's problems. However, that means that the games are going to be now at 7 in the morning if you live west coast so not much I can do at that point.

So new times are:

BALL Matches - 2PM GMT (10AM ET)
TBD Matches - 3PM GMT (11AM ET)

I am going to start adjusting the rosters soon as well by taking the names out of the people who say they can't make it. So if you see these people ask them if they are going to make it and if they will post. As people get removed from the lists I will move up the people from the bench slots into the starters. Remember, even though you may be listed as a bench player, still show up just in case someone from the starters list doesn't show up (which is probably pretty likely).

nesnl
04-17-2010, 04:28 PM
Okay, I have updated the first page with the current rosters that accounts for people who won't be able to make it. That means that some people have moved up from bench warmers to the starting lineup. If you are on a team please check with the other members who are on the lineup and see if they are going to play. I am not going to track everyone down, so if everyone takes a little time to check with thier friend then hopefully we can ensure that we get these games played.

The times are listed in the main post. Originally the "bench" players were only listed so that people could show up in the event that the starters didn't show up, but in all honesty it could be done differently. I say we just wait and see how many people show up and go from there.

Servers are up!

Names are:

USA vs. WORLD - BALL - 1400 GMT
USA vs. WORLD - TBD - 1500 GMT

They both are 40 player max so that everyone can watch. Be respectful and let the people play. Anyone who causes trouble feel free to kick!

Also, don't forget to familiarize yourself with the map list. The maps have a specific play order as outlined in the rules. I am also going to extend the "bench" list in the case that not enough people from the starters or bench list show up.

nesnl
04-24-2010, 03:32 AM
Just one more note before tomorrow. I realize not everyone reads the forums, so if someone is there for tomorrow and doesn't know the rules or the teams, please direct them to this thread.

Remember, the game is to be played by the starters on the list. If a starter doesn't show up then and only then does a bench player go in. The order in which a bench player gets on the team is based on their order on the list. Bench players don't play in the matches for any other reason.

Also, the starters and the bench players are based off the standings as of the official season 1 ladder end. They are not based off the rankings as of today or tomorrow. So just because someone moved up the list since the ladder season ended does not mean they moved up the list for this game.

hi all,
we just checked the servers and they are very very bad for all the Europe players.
we have 150-200 ping, where usa have under 50 pings..
i think this can influence the game..
i know it isnt realy possiable to switch servers now
but if we can get a server like skyleague 5 that is good to EU and to usa that will be great and make the games more fun.

04-24-2010, 11:22 AM
Yes, we'll put them in the middle of the Atlantic, we could host them on some off short oil rig lol. While it could get a little bit better if the servers we're on the east coast and not in Chigaco, it would just be a minor difference.

First, I apologize I wasn't there for the matches today. Some stuff came up and I couldn't make it. Also, I apologize there weren't more admins. By the time I got the servers up I wasn't sure who was going to be around to make an admin. My plan was to have an RCON password and give it to a few people who would then assign other admins with the password. Unfortunately, the only person online at the time was Matattack and I gave him the password for admin and said that he was welcome to bring anyone else in he thought would be responsible. However, he lives west coast and the games were at 7 and 8AM for him, so understandably he slept through the games. Hopefully there wasn't too much of an issue with anyone and the games went smoothly.

Congrats to the USA for their victory in ball. Sounds like they were some good games and I look forward to seeing the recordings.

Does anyone know if hte TBD games were played or if anyone showed up?

Thanks a lot Dougie ! (even though I'm such a ghost on this one -.-)
Nice touch adding the goal replays, it looks great.
I hope you or someone else can post the other 2 matches too.

Great video and nice music. :D

I thought that I was completely useless but it seems I did my share of passing/scoring/saving after all. Our whales were the World-stars though.

Let's try to get the TBD game done. Anyone on the starters list have any ideas of when a good time would be this weekend? Saturday or Sunday? Early or Late? It's up to you guys, let me know. I will leave the server up until then.

Thanks for posting the first game, dougie. Unfortunately, USA got demolished with the exception of Nikon, who held his own. The 2nd and 3rd games were much more competitive imo ;).

I hope life doesn't depend on it, because it's gone. HD ran out of space. Who knew 20 minutes of video capture could take up 45 GB of space.

I'll have the second game posted up on wednesday some point. Done a bit of work on it today. Only missed recording the first 5 seconds of the game, so should be okay!

45 GB for 20 minutes seems indeed a bit excessive, even with maximum quality. Unless you're recording at like 1600x1200 with 40fps which is useless in most cases since Youtube is dumb anyway.

I've had to cut about a minutes midfield ball scrummaging from the video.
Also no music this time! Bit worried about copyright infringements!

Was this played on US servers? All the World team has pings above 100, this doesn't seem very fair. :(

Don't let the World team's embarrassed silence about this match stop you from posting the third one ! Thanks again Dougie :)

And yeah, to even the lag, some kind of Home-Away system of servers would be nice, not only in ladder World Domination but also in any tournament.

Solution: Maimer pays for air travel and accommodations for all U.S. players (bench included) and hosts the tournament over LAN in......Paris.

In the future, Altitude will become an international e-sport with professional teams, sponsors, showcase matches abroad, stadiums, etc.

Everyone will have 1-10 ping (even flight o.o)

If flight would have 10 ping, then Kuja would be a woman. It just doesn't happen.

Flight wins the lottery, moves to the U.S., gets a T4 connection.

Kuja wins the lottery and discovers this site (http://www.feminizationsurgery.com/)

You're right. Won't happen.

Indeed it won't happen.
South Korea has the best internet in the world, not USA.

Yeah, but most Altitude servers are hosted in the U.S.

The frame rate drops in parts of this, that's my fault on the recording. About 1 minute edited from the full match.
