If I go in and find that your team was supposed to move on and didn't I will see about putting you in the 3rd round. I can't make any promises but if it is a failure on the system then I need to address it.

 

 

If the idea was that the top two of every tier would move forward.. well, then it's a simple "Yes".  We fielded 7 players for every match, readied up for every match, and "won" every match with the exception of our match with AFK - in which they won (on Mines, first 'tour'..) after battling to a 3/7 win.

Only the top team (1) moved onto the second stage. From Stage 2, due to math, the top 2 teams will move on.

What I know is you can still enter the battle with KbM, but the control interface will be like touch control, which means you cant's use wasd to move around and click your mouse to shoot. Instead you have to use your mouse to click all the buttons to control everything, it is barely controllable. But this is from my experience of the test tournament, not sure if it is still the same. 

 

well... i didn't have a clear thing about that....and stage 2 its just starting... GG

So, in your view, WG launching this with a single test has worked out swell? Read between the lines in Sly's post and it is clear that WG HQ pushed this out way too early. Add in the lack of uniformity of rules amongst the servers and its obvious feedback from the players in this tournament should be welcomed, not called off as useless.

 

Teams not even being able to fight for an entire round? That is a broken event.

 

The problem with this whole thing is the stakes make it unchangeable, but its a beta tournament. I think Sly had this thing dumped on him as WG rolled this out and got caught flatfooted.

 

Also, ScumbagJuJu, are you on the team getting a pass on the prelims? No issue with the bye, but it is ridiculous for you to come in here telling everyone to shut up when these people actually experienced the issues with the tournament.

I was not calling you all off as useless. My point is the tournament is now underway and nothing can be changed. Afterwards, absolutely. For people to whine and complain about the tournament while it's underway is what gets under my skin. There will be a full on feedback thread when this is all over, save it for then.

Oh snap....I didn't even think that it was his team might have gotten a free pass.

 

So ScumbagJuJu....fest up....IS Ookia_the_Mok correct?


 


 

Fes up to what? Being on one of the "12 Invite" teams that are clearly stated in the news section and rules?! It's out in the open and transparent. Read it again, in the announcement verbatim it says "12 invitational teams". So what exactly am I fessing up too?

No more derailing.

 

If you have feedback feel free to leave it here. Juju is right there will be a feedback thread later but if you have an idea or some feedback you need to get out now - post away!

 

Just please keep it constructive and productive. I am listening and want to make this best it can be.

Seems Totally Awesome so far.

Maybe when the Herd thins.

Will you be able to post/update using a playoff style bracket system current standings?

Noticed a ton of Teams not showing up.

Maybe some form of a Retainer can be applied. If everyone shows, no charge. If not, charged.

Will the Winner get to go to the WhiteHouse, get photo with the President?

 

 

 


As productive as that is, I've seen your stats. You aren't even good at predicting the present.

so... they have a way to determine you are playing using only your mouse to do everything and not WASD and mouse to aim?

 

From the first tournament, it's more straightforward than that. You can log in, ready up and play without issue. The game simply presents touch controls when the countdown ends. You have to manipulate the joystick and the fire button with your mouse, meaning that you can't turn your turret or fire while you're on the move.

 

Judging by the cries of despair that were coming from the three guys on PC in the first tourney, it was pretty frustrating.

Only two things to say, which many others have said. Teams should be larger like 10. All battles should be fought regardless of full roster.

I suggest that the tournament use Supremacy mode in the future. No ties. No being defensive. Or you could have some games encounter and some supremacy.

Fessing up that your clan got a free pass to round 3.

 


 

Yes it clearly state 12 invite teams, but that just means a spot is reserved for one of the 512 teams.  There no indication of anything more.


 

There is no indication that I see that says 12 invite teams automatically advance to round 3. (Please show me that statement)  Full disclosure and transparency would have had explicitly written that the 12 teams get to advance to round 3.


 

Point me to where it says the 12 invite teams get to advance to round 3 without fielding a team or even competing.

 

 

ScumbagJuJu-I'm a man of principles and this bugs me.  The best analogy is that you need to think of your clan as the 1%.  It's NEVER good to cater to the 1%.  That is exactly what has happened.

 

Hope you can understand the view of the 99%ers.  lol
