Keep in mind guys that though this tourny is planned for march, it may get pushed back due to lack of teams.

If we get a minimum 8 signed up by the end of the month I will go ahead with it.

I've seen several new units around lately, but I wonder if any of them are large or organized enough to take part in this.

I may even advertise in the main forums if its quiet by this Sunday. Matchmaker forums are dug pretty down deep here...

Do that now IMO.

I might, I will have to keep a strict cap then though.

Massive tourny will be a bitch and a half for me to organize. :X

But then again we still might not get the teams we need, not really sure what the state of MWLL competition is atm.

there are so many players out there who aren't part of a group.  some posted in this thread.  give them some time to organized on teamspeak and try and get together.  more competition, more fun.

After some calculations I think that if it is an 8 team tourny best of 5 is possible.

Anything beyond that will have to be best of 3.

I will make a relevant thread in the main forum tomorrow.

Thanks for setting this up, Invictus.  Perhaps this deserves a thread of its own, but could a temporary pre-tourney warmup server be hosted somewhere to rotate a few of the maps that just aren't in common rotation?  Just curious.

Trying to devise strategies for maps I've never seen before has been a major concern for me.  We've since found a player in our ranks with enough horsepower to run a server which will solve this issue for us (Leggat up above is in our clan so he'll be covered).  Some of the unaffiliated players may still have this problem though, unless they can run their own local server.  I'd suggest they try this, if only just to get the layout of these maps so they're not going in blind.

Go in blind!!

That way you wont... see you and your team die?

Sorry.

Not quite sure how livestream is going to work though yet, it would be nice to have, but it probably wont happen.

Can MWLL be streamed live through X-Fire? It would be a good advertisement platform to showcase gameplay through X-Fire.

I think we are all mature enough not to cheat even when the possibility is there.

Livestreaming would be a good way to get people interested. Just post the link to the stream on random forums and see how many people show up.

Regardless of live stream service I tend to think it is nice to also have a vid on youtube available. Tends to be a better service for watching things at a later time and also much easier to spread to other people. Everyone will recognize a youtube link and has no problems clicking them. So if someone live streams.. I would much appreciate if there is also a youtube vid available (be that as part of the live stream service or recorded separately or whatever).

Perhaps this is just my personal preference though?
