$50 cash Gow Tourney
« on: August 23, 2015, 01:24:50 AM »
In case anyone hasn't realized it yet its been pretty dead on the server lately.
So I have decided to host a $50 cash tourney last Saturday of every month until the end of 2015. With the hopes we can bring more players back to the War2 server.
The first tourney will be this Saturday August 29, whoever is interested can sign up here

challonge.com/war2gow

Or they can simply pm me.

Remember the whole point of this is to try to get people interested in playing warcraft 2 again, so I open to more ideas as to how to achieve this goal.

Great Tora! I'm a PBaller so GOW tournaments aren't my thing, but anything to help and get people back or new to this game is good. Good work man.

Everyone who would like to help out in spreading the word please join my facebook page. And tell as many people you know about it.

Also if we can get more players I am open to holding $25 2v2 tournaments every month. Or maybe $10 2v2 tournaments every other week.

Tell me what you think guys.,

I think consistency will be the key, as long as you are able to keep hosting them like you suggest I am sure the number of players who come will continue to rise.

lets hope iL will make it mandatory... i really dont see why the hell not.

even if there ARE false positives, it will be way easier to detect them with more players, so... win-win

Thats what i am thinking although so far i haven't gotten anybody to agree to come....
Part of me thinks it might be better if Burnt or somebody with more clout organizes it.
And ill just be responsible for the cash prizes....

Keep updating the thread on here and awareness on the server...people will come. Heck, most people will just show up the day of the tourney wanting to play. So I would also keep that option open to players.

Or just put that command in a bot with a idle timer. Think SB supports that, none of the newer bots don't.

When it comes to tournament day just be sure to keep telling each player who joins the channel about your tournament / time of it. Try logging on as early as you can that morning letting people know.

I put it as the main channel greet for now.

If I can make it that day I will help out for sure. Most people will not sign up ahead of time or will want you to do it for them. That's why I just rather use forums for brackets then other sites, plus it gets more people here on the forums who can run into other topics and possibly sign up here.

Easy that way to just write down their names and throw it into a bracket , and add the link to your profile. If you want as many people as possible playing in it then that is probably your best bet without having your tournament start late due to people still needing to register.

You will run into a lot of guys who will want to keep playing in their current game instead of reporting to the channel for the start time. Be sure to give them deadlines before advancing their opponent so one of your brackets will not fall to far behind the other, causing even more afk's and making for a longer night and chances of people disappearing.
