Put $5 prize or something on a random seed in the first round to get people who don't feel they have a chance to at least participate.
part of me feels like holding a side tourney for newbs
problem is I never get enough

I created this clan like 5 years ago strictly for the purpose of turning newbs or average players into pros. It disbttake me long and my first 2 recruits were at the bottom of the pro list within 2-3 months. I was able to ally them against people of my same skill level...when I first got them I was able to 2v1 them fairly easily which says a lot about their skill when they first started gow EF. I can't 2v1 even 2 slightly below average players and win with any type of eegularity

You know Tk I have watched all of your videos.
They are very informative in the sense that they will teach you the basic builds, as well as the basic text book strats.

However how do you teach someone how to micro and attack with, lets say 6 grunts and a cat.
I dont think you can. That  takes a lot of practice.

My biggest problem is when i get caught up in the heat of a battle I lose track of my resources. Before I know it I am usually over mining, or chopping too much wood, or im behind on both. And sometimes purely by accident my resouses stay perfectly in sink

no obviously you can't do it for someone. but.. you can teach them the techniques, tricks, and ways to develope those skills.

for example.. if you watch a video Poscow or Viruz recorded you will see them bouncing back and forth between their first 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 buildings they build.. clicking on each one as fast as they can and alternating the patterns. to some people it might look like they're just bored clicking shit but that's not why they're doing it. it's getting their brain ready to click at such a high rate and improving accuracy (or in their case keeping their accuracy sharp). kind of like a stretching exercise or warm up before the real game kicks off.

if i never saw them do that i would never think to do it myself. thats a really good little trick to start doing. its just a nice little training exercise for your brain that will make you a faster and more accurate player.

there's all kinds of little stuff that you can teach someone that they never would have thought to do on their own.. but once they know about it they will either remember it during a game, or reflect on a game they lost and think "oh yeah.. i should have done that one thing i saw/heard a couple days ago"  .. and then they're more likely to do it the next time a similar situation comes up. and once they do it that first time in game, its not long before they find themselves doing it almost by reflex.

Interesting argument.
I have watched the viruz/poscow battles probably 10 times now and I've never thought about the whole clicking thing to be anything other than clicking.

׿

here is a good example.. any "down time" he has where he literally cant build anything and he's just waiting for units or buildings to complete.. he's constantly clicking random units/buildings. he will click farms that are completed, his lumbermill, blacksmith even after all upgrades are complete, same with altar.. he's just forcing his mind to keep moving at a fast rate because he knows how easy it is to let your brain slow down. if you hit a slow point in a game your brain slows down and its not always easy getting your brain back into 6th gear so he just keeps it in 6th gear the entire time. its very intentional

he made that game go on a lot longer than most people would have. it was an impressive feat considering who he was playing and what strats were used.

eh, after watching the whole thing i think the primary reason it lasted that long was braviet was playing it safe.  brav took 12 and 2 (in addition to already having 4/5 untouched) with some mining from 3/s5 while viruz fought all game just to keep dks off his 1 exp.  it wasn't that close, though viruz had good apm and uc like always.  it cuts out before it shows stats but i bet he was outmined by like 70k lol

Well since this discussion is over now.

I will stick to my main plan
The maps for the November 28th Pro Tournament will be

Round 1 GSEW High res

Round 2 Spiral Med res

Round 3 POS Low res

Round 4 GOW High res

The speed for all the maps will be EF, and I will post the brackets before the start of the tournament.

Also I could use a volunteer to help me with the Newb tournament which will be starting 30mins after the start of the Pro Tournament.

Well here are my mock brackets before the start of the pro tourney on Saturday
http://challonge.com/war2gow1

Obviously there is a very good chance the brackets will change before the start.
But this should give you all an idea for how the lay out to the next tourney will be.
