Welcome to the First Annual Altitude Summer League!

OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://evilarsenal.webs.com/

Format: 5v5 TBD

**************

SERVERS: SUMMER LEAGUE #1 AND SUMMER LEAGUE #2
PASSWORD: sleague

**************

Tentative Scheduled Start: July 19th

WIKI LINK: http://wiki.altitudegame.com/wiki/index.php?title=Summer_League_2009

***I will be updating this post regularly as well as making a Wiki page for this tournament as well***

Since there seems to be a lot of interest in having another tournament I figured I would go ahead and get the ball rolling on something for this summer. I am currently getting in contact with Tec27 about getting the TL server set up back to where it is password protected for league matches. Ideally we will have two match servers so that if there are a lot of teams that sign up that we can have two games going on at once.

The format and rules are going to be the same as they were for the first tournament. I pretty much copied and pasted them from the original tournament thread and modified them to fit this new tournament. Ideally I see the league starting in 2 weeks (so Sunday July 19th) and the games happening on Sunday. Sunday always seems like a good day to have games because most people can make the games.

I know there are a lot of teams already out there that will be ready to go for the tournament but I also know that there are people that would be interested in playing but do not have a team. In the post after this one I will keep a rolling tally of all the teams that are currently signed up for the tournament as well as a list of players that are looking for a team. So if you want to be on a team just post in this thread and I will add your name to that post and hopefully people can contact you about being on a team. That means you should include an email address or some way to contact you. There is also a private message system on the forums which you are welcome to use to organize teams.

Here is the info you need to sign your team up for the tournament:

Only the captain can official submit a team roster! Teams should be no more than 10 and no few than 5 players. The format is 5v5 so if you only have 5 and someone doesn't show up then you will be playing a man short. So I suggest having a few more players than 5 on your roster. Only a team with at least 5 players should be sending in a final roster. If you have less than 5 I suggest starting a thread saying that you are looking for players as that worked the best in the past and then once you have 5 or more players then post your final roster here. If you are a single player looking for a team feel free to post here, but if you are a team with a few short just start your own thread!

Sign ups will continue until July 16th. To clarify, July 16th, 12:00am EST is the end of sign ups.

I need your team name and tag simply for identification. I'd appreciate it if everyone could wear a tag during all league games. It'd make sorting through everything much simpler. I am not including information on IP addresses or account IDs. I will not be checking the server logs for the validity of team players. It is up to each team to be on the honor system and only field the actual players on their teams. It is a small community and I feel like any kind of smurfing will generally not happen.

TOURNAMENT RULES

The league's first season will run from: July 19 to August 16. The first 3 sundays will be for regular season games and the final two sundays will be for the playoffs.

A team will have 2 matches scheduled per week. The default play date is Sunday. It is up to the captains to agree to a separate date if it is required. If a date cannot be agreed on, then the match must be played on Sunday. Time depends on preferred time-zones of teams. I will do my best to schedule games so that they are at the same time of the day. I think part of the problem with the previous tournament is some teams would have a game early in the afternoon and then late at night. Plan on having 2 games on the Sunday and each one will be slotted for a one hour time block.

The complete map pool is: Mayhem, Core, Woods, Lost City, Middleground, Cave, Asteroids

Throughout the season, the following format will be used with a map veto system:

- Regular Season: BO1 on each map, best of 3 maps
- Playoffs: BO1 on each map, best of 5 maps
- Championship Match: BO1 on each map, best of 7 maps

At any point (including immediately) before each match, map vetos will be announced. Team 1 vetoes a single map first, then team 2 vetoes two maps, and finally team 1 will veto the last map. Team 2 will choose the first map to be played on and the loser chooses each map thereafter. Try to figure out which maps you want to play beforehand! Nothing worse than sitting in game waiting for a team to decide for 15 minutes.

Schedules will be updated and posted in this thread. Check this thread for your scheduled match times!

During the regular season, each team will have an equal number of games as team 1 and 2 (similar to home and away). During the playoffs, seeding will determine who vetoes and chooses maps first: Lower seeds veto first, top seeds choose the first map.

The playoffs will include the top 4 teams by overall winning percentage (this could change depending on how many teams get involved). If a tie occurs with the winning percentage, the tie breaker goes to the winner of the team's regular season match.

The winning captain has to report the results to me. Screenshots of the post-game screen must be captured after every game and should be submitted to ME (Maimer) via email immediately following the game along with a scoring summary in text. For example:

EMAIL ADDRESS TO MAIL RESULTS/SCREENSHOTS: NESNL23@gmail.com

Team Extreme beat The Snobsickles 2-1
Team Extreme won Cave, The Snobsickles won Lost City and Team Extreme won Asteroids.

Attach the game screenshots to the email!

A game which lacks screenshots from either side will result in a loss and 1 game suspension for both teams. Realistically, a suspension will not be handed out unless there is a dispute. Making sure you take screenshots is a simple way to be safe and ensure there is no drama.

In the event of a tie (mutual destruction), the map must be replayed immediately.

A team must have at least 5 total pilots including a designated captain. A team is limited to 10 total pilots.

If you have less than 5 players who show up for a match then it is up to the other team whether they want to play the same amount of players or if they choose to play a man (or two) up. It is up to your team to coordinate your team's players. If you show up with fewer than 5 players for a match do not expect to reschedule the match. Plan ahead and plan for a few people being no shows.

IN GAME RULES:

- Substitutions can only take place in between games and not during a game. This means that each player should test their connection with the server extensively before the game goes live. If a player is having problems, he should not play. If a player disconnected or their game crashes that same player may reenter the game once they reconnect. However, no other player is allowed to enter the game that is in progress. If this is violated and the opposing team wants to object then take a screenshot and send it to me with an explanation of what happened. If someone is observing and accidentally spawns but quickly leaves without impacting the game then I suggest teams don't worry about it. But if someone is being abusive then definitely let me know.

- Everyone should be spawning at the same time. That means ideally you should have a 3rd party observer that does a count down for the spawn. Any observers should refrain from using general chat or interring with the game at any point.

Check in your game options to see which of your keys is bound to take a screenshot. Also, there is usually a basic command that can take a screenshot from your OS. With windows I think it's just Print Screen and with Mac OS it's Open-Apple + Shift + 3.

Do you have a team for the tournament? Do you want me to put you on the list of people looking for a team?

sooo... is [V] still around? I haven't seen nfomonkey in a while.

As far as I can tell team [V] and team [TS] are both mostly disbanded. Ideally I think it would be nice to mix things up with these teams because I feel like in the last tournament it had an us versus them feel to it in terms of players who had been around a while compared to those that were newer.

Feel free to start a new team and recruit some people!

although it's true that the teams v and ts seemed to have that "vets vs non vets" mentality to it, i'm sure there are plenty of other teams now that are skilled enough to compete with the old timers. also i felt like team v had pretty good chemistry, so why don't we try to gather whoever was in team v that is still active before trying to fill up the rest of our roster? from what i can tell, it seems like nfomonkey is the only guy i haven't seen playing recently.

Our team is nearly back at full force, and already has a lot of experience in competitive 5v5. I know you're both good players so if you want, I think you can both join.

Just as an update: I will post the schedules shortly after the signups close which will be on the 16th. The games are tentatively planned to start on the 19th. So check here or check on the WIKI page for the schedules.

http://wiki.altitudegame.com/wiki/index.php?title=Summer_League_2009

Please do not edit that specific Wiki page unless you fit the following set of rules:
*Your name is Maimer.

Also, I have received questions regarding teams TS and V. As far as I know those teams have mostly disbanded. I can't speak for V, but TS really isn't around anymore. As far as I can tell the only people still around are me (Maimer), Diogenes' Dog, Pillars, Charlie, Lorpus, Protest boy, and Yankeeboy (still a demo account user). And I think Dio is starting his own team. I think I am in agreement with Dio in that the teams should be mixed up with some old and some new players (however, that is not a rule or anything).

Bottom line is some more people need to step up and start making some teams! The more the better. I also would appreciate it if people would announce in game that the tournament signups are happening. I try to do it in the games I am in because a lot of people have never visited this forum.

Oh, and for anyone who is still wondering. Kuja900 is a man!

EDIT: From personal experience in the last league I strongly advice all teams to have at least 8 members. People not showing was a huge problem last league and its because they didnt have any subs to fill in for when others cant be there.

This sounds like fun, unfortunately I won't have the time to compete this time around - too much going on in the Summer Holidays. But if there are more seasons after the first one, I would be interested in finding a team - although I have to bring attention to the fact that I consider myself a casual player and assuch has not yet reached level 60 - I do own the full game though. I am also experiencing virus trouble on the PC I usually play this game on, but I count on aquiring a new laptop that should easily be able to handle the game, soon.

Please, if any team captains are interested in a 2nd season-addition to their team, send me a personal message. Feel free to ask about anything, such as which planes I consider myself best with, stats, favourite maps, etc...

Cheers,
DE.

The ridiculous ping is an unfortunate result of studying abroad in Germany right now. I'm going to be heading back home to the states on July 24th, so very shortly into the tournament, and I have a 40 or less ping there so it should all be good.

Until then, sorry everyone for the unbearable ping. It's killing me more than it's killing you, on a lot of levels.

If the other teams on the forums actually register it looks like we will have 12 solid teams so it's shaping up to be a good field. Here are the people that have responded to this thread that are interested in joining a team if you are still looking for people:

Okay so here is an update:

The server have been set up and are courtesy of Tec27 and TeamLiquid. So make sure to thank him if you see him. They have the names Summer League #1 and Summer League #2. You will be assigned one of these two servers for your games. TEAM CAPTAINS: CHECK AHEAD OF TIME SO THAT YOU KNOW WHICH ONE YOU ARE PLAYING ON.

The password for the servers is: sleague

You are welcome to use it for practice or scrim matches during the week but during game time the priority goes to the players of the match. That means that the teams that have that scheduled time will boot you if they need the space. Please don't make this an issue when the time comes.

AGAIN THE PASSWORD IS: sleague

IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO TELL YOUR TEAM MEMBERS THIS PASSWORD AND TO KNOW IT YOURSELF. I AM UPDATING THE FIRST POST IN THIS THREAD SO CONTAIN THE SERVER PASSWORD.

Those people are more than welcome to do so and will be given preferential spots on the league servers.

Last Update before the close of registration:

I would really like to get an even number of teams. It will make scheduling a lot easier. If anyone wants to join, do so now. Even if you only have 3-4 people, just sign up and I am sure we can find some people to join your team. I know there are a lot of good people who don't have a team so maybe they would be willing to join. People such as Pillars, lambchops, pbs, redshift, king, blank, skywalker, capedavenger, yankeeboy, lorpus, lamsbro... all don't have a team. Not saying they all have interest, but maybe could be persuaded if a team were started.

Second thing is please check your team rosters. If anyone is missing or if anyone is included that shouldn't be, please let me know. You can check it on the first page of this thread.

The tournament will be starting this Sunday! So be ready to play with your teams and the schedules will be posted in the next day or so.

nesnl
07-16-2009, 06:18 AM
Okay, the registration has closed!

A total of 14 teams registered for the tournament.

I know in the rules it says that the team rosters must have been submitted by this time, but I realize some teams do not have a full team and might have a hard time fielding a full 5 members every week. Therefore, if you have less than 10 players on your team you are welcome to add players up to a total of 10 for the entirety of the season. If you are unsure on some of your players and only have 5 or 6 on your team I would recommend finding a few people to add to the roster.

I will post the schedules in the next day or so on the first page of this post as well as the wiki page which is linked on the first post of this page. It will also be updated on evilarsenal's website. So you have no excuse about not knowing your game time as there will be three different places that you can check the schedule!

I plan on scheduling 4 weeks of regular season play. That means at 2 games per week you will only play a total of 8 of the total number of teams. The scheduling is going to be done randomly because of this. That means that I am going to assign each team a number and then have a computer program assign the matches. Please do not complain about having to play certain teams and not being able to play other teams.

AGAIN, CHECK THIS THREAD OVER THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS IN ORDER TO GET THE SCHEDULE. GAMES WILL BEGIN ON SUNDAY THE 19TH. THAT IS 4 DAYS FROM NOW. ALSO, I AM GOING TO BE SAYING THIS A LOT, BUT PLEASE TAKE SCREENSHOTS OF THE FINAL SCREEN IN EACH GAME (MAKE SURE TO HOLD TAB TO SHOW THE SCOREBOARD) AND SEND THEM TO: NESNL23@GMAIL.COM WITH THE BODY OF THE EMAIL INDICATING WHICH TEAM WON AND WHAT MAP WAS PLAYED.

One more note about the scheduling:

Since most people reported that they were in time zone EST. The scheduling of the games was done in EST. Please adjust your time zone accordingly to the games times that are posted.

Also, the games assignment was random. I created the schedule and then used a random number generator to assign each team a number. I tried to make it so that each team played two games, one right after the other. But as a result, two teams per week must play a game in the beginning and at the end of the available times. If your team has such a week, where it doesn't play two consecutive games, that is the only week it will happen. I made sure no team has to do this twice.

Also, we are doing this for the fun of it all. The games must be completed by the next week. So if teams don't show up this sunday (or any sunday), try to get in contact with them, preferably their captain, and try to set up a time during the week.

Rule clarifications before we need them:

Is there a ping requirement to play?
Clearly 400 ping is silly and 90 ping is okay. A limit of somewhere between 150 and 175 would seem prudent.

Additional, the tie-breaking rules could use clarification. Currently they state
"The playoffs will include the top 4 teams by overall winning percentage (this could change depending on how many teams get involved). If a tie occurs with the winning percentage, the tie breaker goes to the winner of the team's regular season match."

In my mind it should go
-- match win percentage
-> game win percentage
-> winner of the regular season match (if applicable)
-> 3 game match for playoff rights.

or
-- match win percentage
-> game win percentage
-> your 8 regular season opponents' win percentages [schedule difficulty]

but really it can be anything so long as it is clearly stated now.

As far as ping goes, I didn't set any specific limit. I think that we deal with a lot of different people and I wanted to include as many people as possible. That being said, I am sure that there will be some less than ideal situations. Some people are playing from across the globe. So try to be as tolerant as possible. Remember we are above all just having fun with friends :D

As far as the playoffs go, I specifically left it open because I didn't know how many teams would register. In all likelihood the playoff field will be much larger and we can decide when we get to the end. A lot of factors will influence the playoffs, but the main one will be if all the teams stay the whole season (which is unlikely). So in reality the playoffs will probably be the top 8-10 teams, so I wouldn't worry so much about specific cutoffs, etc.

But just to clarify, if there is a tie at a cutoff point for the playoffs, the tiebreaker will first go to the team that won in the match between the two teams in the season. If the two teams didn't play in the season then it will go to the team with the higher winning percentage.

Mid-round substitutions are prohibited and it is listed in the rules. However, if someone disconnects for whatever reason, they are welcome to reconnect and join the game again. This is mainly to prevent people from getting the idea in their head that they can whisper a buddy to disconnect if things are going poorly so they can sub in their better players.

I set up a Rounds Won/Rounds Lost on the standings... just because a team loses to a team during the regular season doesnt mean it should decide as a tiebreaker... the ratio of rounds won/rounds lost should be a stronger factor because a team can have one bad match and be much stronger every other match

I know what you are saying, but at the same time each team is only playing 8 of the 13 teams. So if two teams are tied at the end, I feel the best indicator is if they played each other. The reason being that one team could have had a stronger or weaker schedule than the other. (As in one team played the best 8 teams in the league while the other one played the worst 8 teams). If we played a full season where everyone played each other at least once then I think your system might work better. But I don't think this is going to be a problem. When the playoffs come we can be as inclusive as possible and let a large number of teams compete for the title.

Ahhhh, sorry. I read over it but I must have just missed it. Thanks.

Also, I agree that head-to-head games should be used to tie break over ratio of rounds won:lost.

Mid-round substitutions are prohibited and it is listed in the rules. However, if someone disconnects for whatever reason, they are welcome to reconnect and join the game again. This is mainly to prevent people from getting the idea in their head that they can whisper a buddy to disconnect if things are going poorly so they can sub in their better players.

meh. I think that's pretty harsh for a friendly league where everyone pretty much knows each other.

not a big deal, but I don't see any reason not to be lenient. even if someone abuses this, the abuse doesn't result in any horrific results.

During the TL league, teams could change their match time if both teams agreed. It worked quite well. I don't know if Maimer authorises it this time, I think so ...
Anyway, you can try to reschedule it, maybe saturday evening, or monday ?

Perhaps we could institute a pinch-hitter rule to help minimize this; if a substitution must happen for any reason, the player who left cannot play for the rest of the day. If the reason is due to a disconnect, then their internet is poor enough that they shouldn't play for awhile anyways.

There should definately be a lag limit. While a 200 cap would be more ideal, 400 would be acceptable.

nesnl
07-17-2009, 09:50 PM
Well I personally don't care if you guys want to do substitutions, but I would rather teams try to play everyone instead of having a "must win" mentality. However, in the end I personally won't know if a team substitutes someone, so as long as both teams don't have a problem then just go for it. So if your team wants to do substitutions in game then please ask the other team first so that they can decide whether they want to do it or not.

Divra, I apologize that your games are so late. I tried my best to accommodate each team's time zone needs and at the same time make it so each team played consecutive games. I suggest getting in contact with the captain of the team(s) you are playing and explain the situation. As long as the game is completed prior to the games next sunday then it is fine. So you have 1 week to figure out a time to play and get the games done!

As for lag, there is going to be no official rule for now. If someone consistently or a team consistently has a substantially high ping (ie above 400) then we will consider capping it in future tournaments.

Also, please check to see what the rules are for being the home team (team #1) or the away team (team #2) and have your map veto list ready to go prior to each game. The games are scheduled for one hour. If you waste time prior to starting it's only going to hurt other teams down the line. If a team shows up late (ie like 15-20 minutes late) or if they waste time picking maps or vetos (ie like 15-20 minutes) and it rushes the matches please let me know.

I dont agree, My ping its 170~230. but same times he UP!^ To 999 for maybe 2~3 Seconds.... and this will kick me due high ping =/

A no Max ping its the ideal, i think... considere, there will not be a 999 player.

So I think there was enough interest in that [PRO] might be able to swing this if its not too late to sign up.

Some of these people might already be on other teams(in which case don't count them), and if its ok with maimer or whoever, we might have to spam aim to get people that aren't necessarily listed here but are never the less, are pro, to play.

Also, since some people objected to the moniker [Pro] I'm suggesting as an alternative tag [NH].

Rough list of Pro/NH players(? means they might be on another team):
Stack, Porpus, Evil, Triped, Blank, Ferret, Bob?, Dio?, Charlie?
There are people that didn't post in the interest thread but count as part of team anyway and might get spammed on aim to play if we are short, like snow, lamster and jawa. Not sure if this is allowed but I doubt this team will work if we can't ad-hoc it a bit.

In all likelihood though nobody will show up to our first game and this team will dissolve shortly after. But after I spent 5 minutes writing this post I sure hope not!

07-18-2009, 02:41 AM
Well let's see what happens this first week and if any teams drop out or are no shows. If that's the case then we can throw your team in there and get you some additional games to catch up. However, I notice from your list that a lot of those players are on teams. Of the people you listed, the people that are on teams are: Stack, Evil, Bob, Dio, Charlie, and jawa (esoteric). However, the are other people out there that would probably play such as pillars, lamsbro, spirtz, caped, etc. However, I can't guarantee a spot because the schedule has been done and all the teams thus far haven't dropped out or said anything about withdrawing.

If you can't stay under 400 ping, you shouldn't play. Going to 999 for 3 seconds gives you a free bomb drop which is retarded. There must be a ping cap, just like in the TL tourney, 300 would be nice but I guess 400 for the australians is ok.

1pm EST american on sundays -> 2.30 am central aust time monday
7pm EST american on sundays -> 8.30 am central aust time monday

Thats bloody rough mate, basically only the aussies who game full time will be able to play. Unlike we, the MH's, who all have full time work or uni within an hour of our match....
Don't count us out of the league though. We'll try our best to get people who can play.

Yah, it's unfortunate that some teams are in different time zones but I had to schedule around the majority of team responding. We play Sunday because that's the time that most people are around. If we scheduled for Saturday, a lot of people go out or are busy so it's more difficult.

The best option is to reschedule. Don't just assume that you have to forfeit. This is a friendly league and I am sure that teams will be more than willing to work things out for the better of the league. Just get in contact with the team captains for your games and let them know what days/times work for you and see if something can be worked out.

Just remember that Sunday is the "default" game time, but it doesn't mean the game has to be played then.

Our team has major time zone dilemmas. I Also think the games should be on Saturday. If people are going out, they go out after 7pm anyway. I have 4 Aussies, an Itialian, a singaporian and 3 USA. Makes it tough when the Aussies/Singaporian have to work Monday, and the Italian would be 2am - 4am Monday.

Makes alot more sense on a saturday. I know my boys would get up on a Sunday(Aus Time), or most likely still be awake from going out the night before.

If any teams are scheduled against PX, get your captain to send me a message, as I am more than happy to organize a different time for the game.

wtf you go out sundays but not saturdays

nesnl
07-18-2009, 09:45 PM
Well a lot of people have posted comments/concerns about game times and the possibility of not making games. I have said this in previous posts, but I will say it again, I scheduled the game based on the majority of team respondants. And the game times posted are the default game times, which means that the server is reserved for your game at that time but you have all week to complete the game.

That being said it is your responsibility as team captains to contact other teams if you cannot make the default game time in order to schedule another time. I am not going to be a middle man between teams to set up new times. If you want to play the games then put in the effort to schedule a new time.

GGQ
07-18-2009, 11:43 PM
Yeah, so the Teamliquid Altitude League only lasted a couple of weeks, but really everyone was very very good about finding a time that worked for both teams.

I suggest every team captain figure out when their team can play best, and if your team can't get enough players to a certain time, just talk with the other captains.

Not only do I take great offense to this kind of slander, but it is not your decision to suspend our team or our opponents from any matches. These kind of actions are exactly why I made it clear I did NOT want to have a co-captaincy.

In regards to the -MH- problems that are going on right now: It is not my place to decide who is captain and who isn't. However, I don't want those types of problems to prevent those players from playing. If you have games scheduled versus MH, they will most likely still be played, but they may end up being played later in the season if we can't come to a workable solution this week. So please be patient if you are on MH or if you are scheduled to play against the team. We will figure it all out soon.

Another update:

Looks like we had some good games today. If you didn't get to play your games yet, don't worry, you have all week to get them done. So try your best as team captains to get a time together and get the games done! I want all the teams to stay active and I want to have as few forfeits as possible.

Also, EvilArsenal has really been taking a lot of initiative in this league and has shown a lot of interest in continuing that role in the future. He has been updating his website very regularly, so please keep checking his website and notify him of any error or mistakes.

So for the games coming up this week and the following weeks email the results to: zoldennis5491@Yahoo.com. He is going to handle all the wins/losses for all the teams. (the emails to me this week are fine and those games will be recorded so don't worry about emailing him this week).

I am going to add a couple of clarifications to the rules as well to make sure all the teams can get games in even if they are short players. If you have less than 10 players on your team you can add anyone to your team at any point during the season (up to 10 players). However, once someone plays for a team then they are locked into that team and cannot play for another team.

Also, I need to address cheating. I stated in the first post that I wouldn't be checking account IDs, however, today a player tried to change his name to the same as someone else on a different team. The team was down a player and needed someone but that is not an excuse to try to trick that team into thinking they are playing someone they aren't. Tec27 still has the server logs from all the games and if this is ever suspected again we will start checking server logs to see if people are playing for other teams by changing their names. I didn't want to do this and I shouldn't have to. We are a small community and keeping this league honest shouldn't be a problem.

I was under the impression that we were free to reschedule anytime before the next week of matches, which we are in the middle of doing with J.C. and bc09 - let me know if this is wrong.

If you plan to reschedule though please notify the oppposing team captains ahead of time so people don't show up for nothing.

Yes, this is important. If you are going to reschedule games from here on out (weeks 2-4) you must notify the opposing team's captains ahead of time. I can understand the frustration if a team shows up and the other team doesn't show. However, this is the first week, so I hope the other teams cut a little slack to the other teams. But in the future if you don't give sufficient time to the other teams then it will be considered a forfeit.

So if your team can't make a game don't make a post saying "we can't make our games so get in touch with us." It is your responsibility to get in contact with the other teams.

Sorry, I had been discussing times with Bong, and you Slip, so I didn't think we'd left you guys in the dark. If we were responsible for any misunderstandings, I'm sorry.

I will try and get in touch with you guys and finalize a time now.

I keep hearing tales of VODs and commentaries on the matches. Anyone know where one might come across such items?

The VODs of ACE games will be up in a couple of days, just as soon as Tec finishes commentaries. As soon as it's done links will be posted.

No, there isn't any issue - the matches are still gonna be played this week, although not at the default times 'cause of timezone issues. I'm already talking to slip and Bong about when we'll have them.

Please ignore all this supposed e-drama, it doesn't affect our role in the league one bit.

Aight i know it aint an issue. And I probably had to say "didnt go on"instead of "doesnt go on" cause i know it will be played.

Yeah sorry for the drama lol:s

Can we add a ping limit to the league servers? Say 300?

Some pings where ridiculous last night...

sry about the confusion dak. Un didnt inform me that he was on your team. He didnt have your tag and i needed him so he signed up in a jiffy. i updated the roster and we played the match. We can discuss more in the game bcuz i dont like typing like this on the forum but if u really need UN im sure we can work something out. OK? again sry for the confusion and well work this out rite away.

The issue of Where UN was playin has been resloved. I have consulted with Dak and he says its ok that i have UN. SO i will now post my new roster since we've been changing it
Captain: Ian
Team Members: Bong, Divra, DMCM, number 3, Sxul Choc, AKING, wuwu, Dragon, UN Squadron.
That's most likely the final 10 but im not making any promises].

If someone chooses to leave a team or gets kicked out of a team, they can't join another team until next season. You can only be part of one team throughout the season.

Okay, someone clear this whole UN Squadron thing up for me. I know that during this weekends games that EvilArsenal was present during a lot of matches and told you guys that you didn't need to take screenshots because he saw the results. But as a consequence of that I only received the results of 6 of the total 14 matches via email with screenshots. I did not receive any screenshots of the games played by PX or the games played by JC. So I can't tell which team he actually played for. Someone tell me which team he played for during this weekends games so that I can make sure the rosters are correct and that he only plays for that team throughout the season.

nesnl:

As for the PX game against [JC] U.N. was in that game for sure. I remember it. Also, can you please address the max-ping concerns. In one of our matches,a players ping was 999 the entire time. They won, fair and square, but the ping was a real problem and an overall distraction for everyone involved. Would you please set the record strait for max-pings in tournament play as it seams to be a problem for others as well.

they have to be reasonable with pings imo.

Its one thing to be pinging 300 but a whole another story when they constantly warp around with 999 ping. The captain should not let someone with connection problems play.

Agreed, even the Australians stay under 400 ping. If you can't keep it under that then you really shouldn't be playing competitively until you get a stable connection.

Speaking of that, I think the earliest possible date to have the livestream.com viewing for me would be this Friday. So, for those of you who would like to watch the VOD/commentary release "live" (aka with some other people, being able to chat with them about what's going on, etc.), when would you like that to happen? Should I push for a weekend release or would you guys prefer to wait until next monday/tuesday?

Yeah, I'm sorta wondering how many people would turn out for the broadcasts anyway. If it'll only be 3 or 4, its probably better to just release them in HD on youtube and not worry about it.

Edit: and for anyone that wants an example of what the VODs will sorta be like, here's one from the Teamliquid Altitude League: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHd8rrj19PQ

Captains please do not ignore this - this is the only way I know of contacting you all at the moment:
I have a proposal for the following matches (not as of yet run through beagle, {bc09} or JC leader, but for all's reference so that you can decide whether this is a valid time for us to organise (as time is short):

10pm EST (america) friday and 12pm EST (australia) saturday
-MH- vs {bc09}
11pm EST (america) friday and 1pm EST (australia) saturday
-MH- vs [J.C]

can you please all get together and decide whether this is a suitable time? after talking with a couple of people (JC BONG and MH AIDS) this sounds like it would be reasonable for most. If worst comes to worst, and we have a match with 8v6 players, I'm sure we can rearrange to make it an even match (i.e. 6v6)



This is just an idea so please consider it and do NOT bite my head off!

Peace
CaptainVogez

no slip - you might have missed that part of the convo sorry (maybe it only appeared to the JC's)

what i meant, if it is acceptable, that if we unfortunately have teams show up less than the full 10 (but on the original roster), we can make the teams even by making the number of players on each team the same (taking players out)

i.e, if MH have 8 and bc09 have 6, then we sit 2 players out for the matches and leave it as 6v6.
is that legal maimer?

and if thats the case, are you able to sub in a 7th player each if you have enough at the start of a new match? (if a player shows up for bc09 late for the purpose of the last example)

Ok...were on the same page when I say its always 5vs5 in a league game then? We only have five people on our roster, a full team.

yea if u have more than 5 just sit them out.... its 5v5 not a full out **** fest of 12v9

Thank you very much Vogez for taking the time to work out these times - you've come up with about the same time I ended up settling on and put to Bong. Haven't put it to Slip yet because I haven't seen him. The only change I made was to make it 11:30 PM EST/1:30 PM Brisbane to accomodate AIDs being able to play (he works at night).

07-21-2009, 10:30 AM
my bad guys - i interpreted incorrectly
thanks for the corrections!

so Beagle, if possible will we do the matches 10pm and 11:30pm america EST (if the others approve?)
I think we should make this an approximate standard too if its okay with other teams

tyr
07-21-2009, 10:41 AM
Well ...
ACE has 4 out of its 10 players that are european.
11:30pm EST would be 5:30am CET.

We'll have to work something else out.
I don't mind playing at 2 or 3am but I dont know about the others.

THIS IS THE JC LEADER IAN.....

this is 2 answer 2 questions.
first is: maimer i did send the screenshots of JC vs PX via email and that me (JC leader) and dak (IT leader) worked out the whole UN thing. UN didnt play 4 IT and he is going 2 b on JC since hes already played 1 game
2nd the schedule thing:
if the game is at 11pm EST i can tmake it but if enough of my team is there then thats fine but if not then well have 2 reschedule again.
I can get in contact with bong or AIDS if necessary cuz i never c u on probably bcuz of time difference.

pm me if there is anything else that must be mentioned
