Title: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: ~ToRa~ on November 11, 2016, 11:45:04 AM
Hey do you consider yourself to be a top Tier BNE player on Warcraft 2? Do you see other people on the server with master tags and wish you had one?
If you answered yes to both of the above questions, then post bellow and challenge one of the master tag holders to a series.

Current master tag holders include,

u8t3io3p
Teaboy
BHC-Jesk
Alf-Attack
Braviet
Sepi
All series must be streamed on Twitch or observed by a twitch streamer.
(If you need help setting up a steam please contact moustopher.)



All series are also to be played Bo7.
Master tag holders who accept the challenge will receive a cash prize for accepting and defeating their challenger.

Should a challenger defeat a master tag holder, the challenger will strip the master tag holder of their status.

The purpose of this master tag challenge thread is to give players who do not currently have a master tag the opportunity to challenge a player in order to receive one. For many weeks players like Yamon, Greenagenda, Equinox, etc. Have expressed interest in receiving master tag status. 

As far as maps go, that is 100% up to the master tag holder who is being challenged. For instance if someone were challenge Swagier for his master tag, Swagier will be the one to set the terms of said challenge (i.e. maps, settings, time, and day)
Since it is his master tag status on the line

The only stipulation we are setting for these matches are for them to be played bo7 with notice and for them to be streamed by both players or from a watchers perspective in order to promote the game on social media.

I would also like to add a couple side notes,
While master tag holders are more than welcome to accept each and every challenge. We will not throw money at every single challenge. For arguments sake lets say Yamon loses to Lux in his challenge. He is more than welcome to come back to this thread and challenge another master tag holder. We will do our best to set up a proper match and time for both players should said master tag holder accept.  However chances are we will not be interested in giving out prize money for multiple challenges by the same competitor in a short time frame. Furthermore should a lower tier player like challenge a master tag holder we also will not be interested in giving out prize money for a successful defense.

At the moment we do not have any system for preventing master tag holders from dodging challenges. However if it becomes apparent that a master tag holder for unreasonable reasons is purposefully dodging multiple challenges they may be liable to lose their master tag status.

JesK and player are better but they don't scare you? It was wise to challenge a player you could easily beat.

Post by: BenJamin on November 11, 2016, 05:47:26 PM
Well I made two seemly contradictory statements,

1. Yamon challenged a player (lux) he could easily beat

2. It isn't good to bet against lux if you know what kind of shape he will be in.

Under normal conditions yamon has a huge advantage because lux wakes up super early (5 am) and doesn't get on until late at night. He is fatigued mentally and physically from both working his day job and taking care of his kids. He might be stressed from projects and meetings and worrying about his kids or why his wife is pissed off at him. Yamon plays all day every day and isnt handicaped by any of those above things.

Lux would have the advantage when he doesn't have to work all day or worry about his kids and wife. He would have an even higher percentage if he takes the time to study yamon's replays. Douglas might in contact with sean so he knows what kind of shape lux is in mentally and how sharp his game will be on match day. Lux is more talented than yamon (equally swift at one point).

lol i'm probably more stressed and fatigued than lux ever is at all times.
 that's why i don't have a wife, children or a job. i don't know how people think these things happen. just shows how narrow-sighted you are.
everyone has problems, trials, tribulations, stress, triggers, and responsibilities. Like seriously did you blow in from stupid town? because almost everything you say is fucking retarded. And the best part about your overall stupidity, is you're an unapologetic kind of stupid. Just absolutely hopeless.

ya i know your series were KOTH. WD blew but 4 corners game was pretty interesting!
I am asking in general, because i think its supposed to be "master picks map and sets" and bo7 is played on those sets

If Lux decided for them to play KOTH style then that is "setting the terms of the challenge."
Lux could have decided what maps and setting they were to play for each round but he chose not to.

Great job xurnt, you should commentate all the match ups if you can. How do you have so much war2 knowledge? I would request that you add insight. I only watched the first 4 games but they were really exciting (except for WD).

Lux is officially demoted from mater tag status. However he is more than welcome to challenge you or any of the other master tag holders to regain master tag status.

Curious to know what the results are without watching all the replays

Looking at them I see this though

Game 1: GOW High
Game 2: GOW High
Game 3: POS BNE Low
Game 4: World Domination, High Fastest
Game 5: Gseps High
Game 6: Four Corners Map Default

Game 4: World Domination, High Fastest - Yamon
Game 5: Gseps High - Yamon
Game 6: Four Corners Map Default - Yamon

Also every game they were neighbors except for game 2.

Hey guys here are Lone's preferred settings.

My preferred settings:

1. GOW BNE F
2. GOW OLD EF
3. HSC BNE EF
4. Arctic circle EF/F

In case my preferred maps get picked by my opponent I'll choose from: AYN, Spiral, Mine in the center, Forest trail - depending on my opponent.

Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread

If the other master tag holders could please post their preferred settings that would be great to.
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: Certified MENSA Genius Brain (smart) on November 22, 2016, 12:52:46 PM
Wouldn't you want your opponents to NOT know what maps you are good at

Like now if I were to challenge Lone and lose a game and pick the next map I'd be like, Well, better not select Arctic circle
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: I hate naggers on November 22, 2016, 12:58:34 PM
i just thought people would stick to one map. And people prefer KOTH, in which case its hard to specify. I think if one prefers KOTH, it should just say KOTH

Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: I hate naggers on November 22, 2016, 01:00:25 PM
So in this case, if lone doesn't want koth, i would choose to play him bo7 series on one of the settings he spefified:

1. GOW BNE F
2. GOW OLD EF
3. HSC BNE EF
4. Arctic circle EF/F

For example "i see ure good at AC, i like that map too, lets roll"
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: I hate naggers on November 22, 2016, 01:01:07 PM
If someone wants to play koth its up to them

YES but if someone wants KOTH, it should just be KOTH, not a whole long list of preferred map settings. Its giving your oponent an edge in this case
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread

Yes your right if someone wants to play KOTH then the setting should be KOTH. However once again that is up to the master tag holder being challenged. I see nothing really wrong with posting what settings and maps a master tag holder prefers to play. That should make it easier for players to practice before said challenges.
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread

well yes, but thats giving an edge to the challenger. Maybe it's good, maybe it's bad.
I just thought it would be good to see if someone preferred bo7 on a single map, or had a list of maps he prefers and can play one of them. If someone prefers KOTH then basically anything could happen and stating "KOTH" is enough for the challenger to be aware that different settings can and will occur

But the master tag holder would have to agree to KOTH battle for it to take place.

Listen as a challenger you dont get to choose what maps are played.
Only reason yamon picked some maps against lux was because lux wanted to play it KOTH.

Also realize these master tag holders are the best players on the server. Even if a challenger knows what maps and settings they like I dont think it will make a huge difference. If anything hopefully it will encourage people to step up and take the challege which is a good thing.
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: I hate naggers on November 22, 2016, 01:43:48 PM
Listen as a challenger you dont get to choose what maps are played.
the ENTIRE point of such list would be for the master tag holders to specify the settings in which they are willing to play.
In this case, if LONE specified arctic circle and then DIDNT want to play arctic circle, that the entire list would be as good as garbage and should be thrown into the dumpster.
if he specified KOTH but then DIDNT want to play KOTH, then the entire list would be as good as garbage and should be thrown into the dumpster

why are you making this entire concept sooooo damn complicated? what are you missing?

Ok, I see what you getting at.

I suppose I hoped a list showing what settings and maps players prefer would hopefully give some insight into what type of player they are. Thus helping people decide what master tag holder they wish to challenge.

@lux and sentinal

Swagier, shotgun, alf-attack, knitterhemd, jesk, viruz, lone, startale, and player are all the current master tag holders.

Looks like yamon and lone are booked this weekend but feel free to challenge one of the other players.

I nominate startale with green plastic or xurnt commentating. I love seeing joe point out lux's mistakes only to see lux overcoming them and winning.

Startale will make enough to order celebratory take out steak and tora will have his distraction from doing school work.

well ggs yamon but i felt like i didnt want to play.
We played koth style. First game was gow. He lost, and picked gow again... And when i lose i pick gow again? So we play 3 games on our bo7 series on gow?...
I thought every map can be played once , so my motivation fall down.
Anyway i wont accept any koth style matches anymore.

what's wrong with gow twice? would you rather of played instant action? we both have the most experience on gow. And my skills don't fall short on other maps. Was smart of you to pick mini games, it's like we were playing mario party.

we played gow twice. Koth starts on gow, and my pick was gow. Whether or not it's against the rules of koth or not, i'm not even sure. But i did it in my series vs lux and he lost money and a master tag and didn't complain about it. I even got s9 twice, and the last game was your pick.

You almost won the series with your picks. And as a player, i only play gow, and world domination is my best map. So if anyone wants to challenge me, those maps will be played. And going 1-1 on gow was a good start to the series. Complaining about playing the map we've both played over 10,000 times in our life times is odd. What would the alternative be? another gimmic map that you would strong arm me on? It was my pick anyway, i could've been a dick like you and picked a map you didn't know, but i picked gow which is more than fair.

But regardless, you almost won the series, you were one game away. It was a decent koth, although very short. But that's because you picked islands and goldrush, and schwartz.

I think its cute yamon's trying to compete with the big boys, Knitter will murder him in any series where he actually forces himself to take yamon seriously. Swift's always trying to prop up the under dog, i'll root for yamon as well but realistically he has no shot

While master tag holders are more than welcome to accept each and every challenge. We will not throw money at every single challenge. For arguments sake lets say Yamon loses to Lux in his challenge. He is more than welcome to come back to this thread and challenge another master tag holder. We will do our best to set up a proper match and time for both players should said master tag holder accept.  However chances are we will not be interested in giving out prize money for multiple challenges by the same competitor in a short time frame. Furthermore should a lower tier player challenge a master tag holder we also will not be interested in giving out prize money for a successful defense.

At the moment we do not have any system for preventing master tag holders from dodging challenges. However if it becomes apparent that a master tag holder for unreasonable reasons is purposefully dodging multiple challenges they may be liable to lose their master tag status.


In fairness Shotgun Ripe isn't that bad.
Also depending on the challenge we do give out a $25 prize for a successful defense by a master tag holder. In other words you will be compensated for your time if the challenge seems legit and not just a waste of time.
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: ~ToRa~ on November 29, 2016, 12:29:09 PM
Guys i'm just going to ask you to please post here before you guys follow thru with your challenges. That way we don't have anyone saying "Oh I didn't know this was a master tag challenge."

This weekend Lone missed out on a $25 prize for not properly confirming with yamon that this was a master vs master challenge.

It will also help in case one of the master tag holders loses and then denies they knew about the match being for the master tag.

it's interesting looking at the top players startale plays, and the top players lone plays.. then comparing how they do against other players.

lone is 18-23 vs u8

ST is 7-18 vs u8   .... lone has a better win %


lone is 13-1 vs spb

ST is 105-34 vs spb   .... lone has better win %


Lone is 4-0 vs medivh

ST is 13-17 vs medivh  ... lone has better win %


Lone is 61-51 vs braviet

ST is 34-71 vs braviet      ... lone has much better win %


but ST vs lone 15-5 (ST's favor)   ... i highly doubt lone had 15 bad games. but i do highly suspect ST has a style of playing that does well against Lone's style.... another possibility is ST rages when he loses, and that might affect how Lone plays vs ST. He does well against calm players who just enjoy playing (u8.. spb.. brav..)  sometimes med rages, but its not the same as ST.

.... just more evidence suggesting the "tier" system is b.s.



It will be interesting to see what the ELO looks like on ladder in another couple months.

wargasm challenged me for the masta tag.

we played 2 games

i won first and the second game crashed/disced/somat.

i think i woulda won easily the second one too. watch urself and cast an opinion.

http://www.filedropper.com/game2wouldawon (http://www.filedropper.com/game2wouldawon)
2 insight reps n warvidz.


2-0. imo.
now he logged. we can continue later.

The only stipulation we are setting for these matches are for them to be played bo7 with notice and for them to be streamed by both players or from a watchers perspective in order to promote the game on social media.

Its in the introduction to the challenge.

Post by: tk[as] on December 04, 2016, 09:57:28 PM
there are a lot of players who don't participate in forum discussion so is it reasonable to expect them to post here about the challenge? or is the whole point in requiring them to post here an attempt to get the engaged in the forums?

if the ladder is not the case, would a screen shot of the agreement be sufficient?

An SS probably shouldn't be accepted just because its very easy to take someones words out of context in the chat room.
It would be very difficult to keep track who is challenging who, who won, etc. We have players post there challenges here and it keeps everything much more orderly. It also gives streamers like Xurnt and Mousey time to sit in on the challenge. Remember simply beating a master tag holder or a challenger without them agreeing to the challenge isn't accepted.   

If players decide they don't want to be part of the forums that's their choice. However without joining the forums and posting in this thread they will not be able to compete in the master tag challenge. 
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: tk[as] on December 05, 2016, 12:32:45 PM
Could reduce the amount of competition we see for the master tag. It will probably be the same handful of people who we've already seen compete for it because they're on the forums.. it could just keep changing the same hands hands

I agree.

Shotgun and Swagier I adress you both here,

Ill throw a $50 prize for the winner of a bo7 KOTH series if you guys can find the time to play.
Only stipulation is Xurnt has to be present to stream your series.

Note: Please don't think im trying to bribe you guys to play. Cash series are just more interesting for everyone involved than normal series.

But do you have burtons smooth voice, enthusiasm, and extensive backround knowledge on the players?

It's also way more convenient that Burton posts the replay on youtube where he has a larger following and more viewers.

Tora is saying szwaiger's stream, with his polish speaking peons no matter how cute, is inadequate for the master challenge.

No matter who records, it is key that burton uploads this series on youtube for a wider audience to see.

Thanks for the plug.

Right now we have went from 4,000 views in 28 days when I first returned before getting the new uploads

To now we are up to 13,000 views in 28 days.

Just going to keep getting more and more videos up and hoping it leads to some strong numbers on the server!

Going to be a slow and steady build but when we start doubling/tripling the amount of videos on the page I really think it will start to show with more newbies showing up.

If anyone else wants to submit videos for me to download that are good games or added commentary I would be glad to add them to the channel as well. Using dropbox is good method.

(Igognito has done this and plans to do more)

I don't really want any warvids though, I use to only record off of them and it's just bad quality after being re-recorded over I think. If you have some good insights I could probably check them out though.


---

Also I have switched to streaming on facebook page War2Combat after Joakim  (Archon[W]/Shotgun!) showed me the amount of views it does. For 4 hours of streaming we got around 2,000 views plus a ton of new likes on the page.

Right now I only have a couple hours to get things done after work so I am just doing those streams on the weekends but if anyone else wants I can make them a editor on the page to do streams off of it. A lot of people comment on the videos amazed about the game still being played, and logging on the server. Dugs? WOOFY WAKE UP! How about it. Yamon? Get that new net/comp?

In a couple months I will be able to stream some on the weekdays too though.

i doubt 100 apm... but wouldnt surprise me if much lower apmthan most top players.. which means he eliminates repetitive clicking.

lots of players are "high strung" during games and click multiple times even though it's unecessary. maybe he doesnt.

Tell me TK, if a player who everyone knows to be bad challenged you would u accept? Players will accept the challenge because they are being paid to defend their master tags. Furthermore it isn't that difficult to regain master tag status once lost.

Maybe make a rule like you need to be top 15 or 20 on ladder to challenge .. but clearly knitter should have every right to challenge.. and refusal to accept/dodge should have consequences. Otherwise it's just going to be a tag that rarely gets challenged.

I have to agree with TK on this one. This should have nothing to do with money. Yamon was challenged for his master tag by a previous tag holder and should be forced to accept whether money is on the line or not. What if you would have never showed up or said no to the money then knitter wouldnt have the master tag back because yamon would not have played.

People want the master tag. I personally think u would be better off re-structuring it.

Make accepting challenges mandatory or loss of tag (put a limit on who can challenge based on ladder ranking). Maybe say they don't have to accept any challenges within a week of acquiring the tag so the tag doesn't change hands every other day (burden on admins ) .. but after a week it's up for grabs. Take the money that would have been donated to people trying to defend it and spend on things that would benefit server (hosting maybe) .. like I said people want the tag. They will play for it and play to keep it. The $25 perk is nice but not necessary to keep the challenges active imo

Take the money that would have been donated to people trying to defend it and spend on things that would benefit server (hosting maybe) .. like I said people want the tag. They will play for it and play to keep it. The $25 perk is nice but not necessary to keep the challenges active imo

Its only master tag holders that receive the $25 prize.
They all collect it when they win it.

Post by: Lone on January 20, 2017, 06:22:13 AM
I'm planning to be active for the next few days/weeks and throughout the period I'd like to challenge as many master tier players as possible.
I started playing today and I think I need another 2-3 days of warming up to confidently take down my first opponents.

I'd like to set up matches in an increasingly difficult (for me) order.

Alf-Attack
Ripe[Eur0]
Medivh
BHC-Jesk
(Quite sure I can take them on without much of a problem starting from next week Tuesday.)

Player
u8t3io3p
(I'm very uncomfortable with playing Player. u8 has a great understanding of the game but I think after I'm warmed up speed will carry me through. Too bad I don't seem them play nowadays.)

Startale
(I've had a hard time with ST, because I'm inexperienced and have not seen anyone play alike him except for a lazy Swift before my 2 years break. However I believe I'm close to understanding his playstyle and will manage to figure out the way to win.)

Shotgun
(Even when rusty he is easily my toughest opponent and has always been aside from Swift. I need several games before I'll start to match him and later beat him.)

Viruz (if he comes back)
(Imo I match up very well with Viruz and playing him are my favorite and by far the most exhausting games. Once I get on fire I hope we'll make our games a sight to see.)

Then finally Swift.
(Personally I think he is the hardest player to beat. Given that I get my practice in the near future, I hope to become able to give him a challenge that he has not had in a long time. )

I prefer old gow ef (best of as many games as you can take) because I'm yet to master it, but if any of you want, we can make it an official master tag challenge or try different maps.

During most of the coming days, I'll try to get on around 4-5pm PST and stay on until there are good games left. If any of the mentioned players are down for matches, please let me know here or online. If you'd like to to play but at a different time I'm also open (Possibly Sg, Eu players). We could also provide Burnt with some quality content if we set up a serious series in advance or if he's around.

Players like Lux, Yamon, Knitt etc... are also welcome for some duels.

As a secondary objective, I want to stop sucking at 2s and maybe learn about other maps.

I hope some great players will derust and revive interest in competition soon, or perhaps weeks before the 1s tourney in July.

I've heard many people think I'm hacking for some reason. You are welcome to ask for warvids as it's on most of the time.

Lastly I'm going to make a new name after I'm ready to maintain a winning record vs most of the best players. I've been learning very quickly and I think I can do this (not sure how soon). Hopefully you'll give me the practice I need for the next level!

yep warvid wanted every game. + we can play the mastachallenge some random night when we r both on same time. i dont like to arrange any specific time cuz RL is too important for me compared to video game :D

why swift is so hard for u to beat is cuz he hax so often. that is why i always lost to his "secret scouts" :D

everyb0dy always write alfs and my nick wrong :D

well this is amusing
I won't 1v1 people who are so full of themselves when they are average players at best.
the 1v1 that we did was very one sided and i was obviously toying with you since the beginning. at the end i had 20 dragons many peons / ogres and prob 10k banked when you left LOL
but its k Lone you can sulk like a child and think what you want.
also the 1v1 was recorded on stream so nice try

Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: Ryzel on February 28, 2017, 08:27:12 AM
As a lurker who 1) loves high quality War2 games and 2) enjoys seeing the competition to be the best, I propose the creation of a Grand Master tag, to help motivate the best to play each other more.

- Only 1 Grand Master tag
- Only those with Master tags are allowed to challenge the Grand Master for his tag
- If Grand Master loses, he still keeps Master tag
- Enhanced winnings for successful Grand Master defense
- Grand Masters don't have to accept all challenges but must accept at least 1 every 2-3 weeks, prioritizing those who he hasn't recently defended against
- Give it to Swag first cause he has the most successful Master tag defenses (earned it) and also because he's my favorite to watch <3

All assuming Tora's down for it of course.  But as an avid spectator of pro games I would get super hyped for this!
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: ~ToRa~ on February 28, 2017, 10:04:15 AM
"Legend"  is grand master. Swift has it currently.

Post by: Meck on February 28, 2017, 10:11:35 PM
Good call out, Ryzel. I agree with you.  Grand Master has a better ring to it and also aligns better to the existing Master status challenges by being an elevated status to Master. Legend, while a solid designator, doesn't imply the whole story.

Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: Ryzel on March 01, 2017, 07:14:51 AM
Oooh, thanks Tora.  That legend thing seems basically what I was talking about.  I wonder why no one seems to have challenged him?  I know these pros have big egos so maybe the risk of losing on stream isn't worth a potential $25. 

Maybe as added incentive make it so there's only one Legend at a time and the challenger can steal the tag?  Or maybe offer guaranteed $5 even if you lose?  Just throwing out ideas.
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: ~ToRa~ on March 01, 2017, 07:50:13 AM
Its mainly cause its swift I think. Only one that thinks he's better than swift is Viruz.
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: mousEtopher on March 01, 2017, 08:07:57 AM
What if there is still 1 grandmaster tag for other masters to compete over, which is like a level below the legend icon? If swift is so pro that no one else will challenge him then it isn't useful to try and include him in this icon/challenge system. But given that he is so pro, could still give him some honorary icon for it. Wasn't the master tag originally a special tag made just for swift or something?
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: ~ToRa~ on March 01, 2017, 01:13:53 PM
Apparently when RU started it was a tag some old admin asked swift to 1s the best russian players with the prize being the master tag. I dont know all the details since I wasn't around but yeah I am warming up to the idea of 1 "grand master" for all the masters to compete over.

Can I get you to make an awesome grand master icon mousey?
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: Nedro on March 01, 2017, 05:11:17 PM
Great idea on the grandmaster tag. I think the settings should chosen from a predetermined list of many puds and resources on shuffle even after the first GM is crowned. A GM should be versatile. For fairness, a third-party like an admin can do the shuffling and announcing of the next settings. Maybe the entire shuffled list is released prior to Game 1. It should be a very long series even if it takes a few sessions, something like best of 15 must win by 2. GMs and challengers should be active enough to handle the longer series length. Bo15 is still short enough to have some starting spot variance which creates interest and more dethroning.

These players are a little more active than what you are suggesting. They don't control who challenges them. They'll be active enough to compete for the first GM tag when the time comes.

i was waiting for ripe for 2 days and i played jesk because i know he's dodging on purpose and i didn't feel like waiting so i just tried other masters, but clearly they own me so.
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: mousEtopher on March 09, 2017, 11:52:30 AM
Looks like a pretty obvious dodge imo
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: ~ToRa~ on March 09, 2017, 02:02:31 PM
At the moment we do not have any system for preventing master tag holders from dodging challenges. However if it becomes apparent that a master tag holder for unreasonable reasons is purposefully dodging multiple challenges they may be liable to lose their master tag status.

Here is what the rules say regarding dodges.
Ripe isn't responding to my pm's so I wouldnt have a huge problem with dropping him. What you think mouse?
If we do drop him we would have yamon, viet, vizzer, and knitterhemd battle for it.

maybe i will study it more and try using it later. warvid and insight r just so simple n light.

well it's more complicated than warvid for sure, but I think it does okay for the amount of crap it has to display. c: I can show you the waaaay ripe, once it's set up you don't even need to go there to stream. (didn't you even set it up at one point in the past? I think you did)

Since it wasn't made clear in the grand master thread we'll let it go this time around. However I do think from now on all challenges against the GrandMaster holder must be done GM style. 

I'll update the thread in a few.

We currently have a "grand master" tag and a "warlord" icon which are both representative of the best players on the server. The "world champ" icon was meant to be representative of the winner of the yearly war2 festival. Since we haven't had a war2 festival in over 2 years it has been temporarily retired until further notice.

it says "15" on it, aka the winner of the 2015 war2 festival. That doesn't change, he's always going to be the one who won that tourney, why take away a tourney-specific icon? He also made that icon specifically for that tourney, it seems wrong for us to randomly appropriate it for our own purposes. if we want some special icon that gets awarded for 1 year only we can just make a new one (or in this case just make a new icon w/ the new year each time)

This is exactly what I don't like about them.

We can get something new in a matter of days but we are still using shareware icon to represent 3000 wins.

I liked the idea awhile back for different unit pictures to represent win stages, would have to have someone monitering stats frequently.

Really though I think the flags were best and need to be brought back. I think when a foreign newbie sees someone from the same country as him they can get help or brought up to speed on some things much quicker or find other newbies or friends around them.

Bring back the flags!

hey, these two inactive players really struggle to play up to 21 games over the course of several sessions. i totally get it. i mean, such a series could take an entire year to complete. deciding which player is the absolute best of an entire era? let's keep it short and sweet. this ensures any starting spot luck is completely neutralized. it'll be much more exciting this way, like flipping a coin. all in the name of war2 community amusement.

here comes the big surprise. if you want to have any sense of real confidence as to who the absolute best player of an era is, extend the series.

but hey, you're near certain in a i don't believe in distribution laws kind of way. so, let's continue dismissing thoughtful ideas and add lol to the front of responses instead.

There isn't anything compelling about this match to me as of yet. Nobody with an opinion that matters thinks U8 will win.

It's the same story line as before.  I'm inactive/inconsistent, and then someone gets good, or a former good player gets unrusty and then a few people start to wonder if that person can beat me. U8 is just the next Scrubbo/Poscow. I got called out by them, and I unrusted to play them and they both lost decisively  - and they were both significantly better than U8. Also, U8 seems to be very humble/friendly so that also leaves no ego  to be broken. Perhaps you should talk some shit. Do you think you would beat me in a GOW series? KOTH series? Both?

Not sure about Poscow, but as far as Scrubbo , HE WAS THE ONE unrusting and getting good really quick and took a nice chunk of wins against you while you were in your peak in 08. You were still better overall but I don't see how you can compare the situation to you vs. U8 now unless it's the other way around saying you are like Scrubbo having to get better.

Incorrect. Scrubbo played over 3,000 games in about 9 months prior to some of our series, and had been on the server prior to that. His appearance on .ru didn't last but maybe a couple years at most, but I don't think there's a player who played that many games in that short amount of a time - perhaps maybe spb or braviet at one point? idk. Anyway, Scrubbo got to a good level on .ru, especially at 2vs2 and was beating just about everyone. He was the only old school bne top player besides shotgun who got good again on .ru and did really well (and maybe nerzy too for a very short period of time.

You also aren't capable of recognizing if he was off or not, as you don't understand the game at the highest level, as consistently evident by your youtube commentary on replays. That's not intended to be mean, it's just a reality.

I don't care too much. The idea of it is kind of intriguing. Unrusting / getting familiar with a bunch of maps and then having a competitive series like back in the day. Nostalgia perhaps. But the effort / time it takes to do that isn't worth it to me.

I'm sure we'll continue playing like we have - occasionally and just for fun. I just prefer people not recite records off ladder / replays as if they prove something, as I am obviously nowhere near my peak state and haven't been for years.

Looking at just the old youtube series I have uploaded was October and his account was created in March, so the series was at 7 months of unrusting. So you are comparing a 7 month of unrust against how many years of you consistently being on every year? Since 2000? Before? Scrubbo was off for at least a couple years prior to coming back on .RU and was extremely competitive in 7 months.

"I unrusted to play them and they both lost decisively"

That is what I am arguing how can you say you are the one that unrusted? You were active for years prior to playing him.

I played multiple series vs Scrubbo, in a few different time periods. If the series you're referring to is the KOTH one that Pimster arranged, then I wasn't rusty in that one. Neither was he.

Did you actually upload that series?

Post by: Certified MENSA Genius Brain (smart) on May 02, 2017, 09:05:53 PM
Scrubbo was good, perhaps the best (DI)
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: XuRnT on May 02, 2017, 09:13:50 PM
I don't remember if that is it or not, it is a variety of maps so perhaps.

The uploads are really horrible quality and most of the games do not even feature the winner (judging by the mini map and my memory I think it was you though)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4-DXwWmpeI (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4-DXwWmpeI)

This was a really nice Maze game, I think I remember you winning it. The finish never got uploaded

Very ggs knitter. all very close. I would like to validate this master tag by challenging other players. I openly invite anyone to challenge me on the road, but i also want to play against other top players, namely lone, u8t, braviet, and valk.
Lone want to 1v1 to unify our master tags?

Before we started you said u got ur stream/ warvideo running. Now your sayin u didnt record anything. Very interessting...

Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: ~ToRa~ on May 17, 2017, 01:34:54 AM
Rules do say everything needs to be warvided for it to count.

So I would say this challenge has been voided and knitter retains his master tag.
Does anyone disagree?
Title: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: Meck on May 17, 2017, 10:18:35 AM
Depends on how you use Knitterhemd's statement that Yamon won 4:3. If the rule of producing video is required then Yamon shouldn't get the tag, regardless of what was said in chat by Knitterhemd.

no stream/warvideo no win,,

(If you need help setting up a steam please contact moustopher.)

Yes according to said rules all matches must be recorded.

So knitter retains his master tag and yamon is DQ'ed.

As far as maps go, that is 100% up to the master tag holder who is being challenged. For instance if someone were challenge Swagier for his master tag, Swagier will be the one to set the terms of said challenge (i.e. maps, settings, time, and day)
Since it is his master tag status on the line

The only stipulation we are setting for these matches are for them to be played bo7 with notice and for them to be streamed by both players or from a watchers perspective in order to promote the game on social media.
classics only i presume? idk if that's ever come up. what about classic-like customs?

Knitter wanted BO7 in mutton. The rules say "maps". I said I will accept mutton 7 games if Tora can  confirm that these maps are acceptable.

Edit: it is hard for me to dignify myself with playing a master challenge 100% in a pseudo-map like mutton.

I agree. I lost mutton 100% because i couldn't kill sheeps fast enough, and I had good control and good strategy for clearing them. Knitter had a gt on me before i had my lumbermill at 50% (i made lumbermill after 1st farm)

I didn't even know what Mutton was until knit played a game on it in a master tag series a few months back. It is more of a custom map than a BNE map. Mutton doesn't include gold mines or trees and in no way utilizes resource management.
It should be excluded from the map pool selection master tag holders can pick from.
I will be sure to add that to the rules in the beginning thread to avoid confusion.

Gj Sepi once you post the insights you will be a master tag holder.

The good news is you get $10 for every successful master tag defense, the bad news is you don't get to play in the tier 2 tournament anymore.

I do think this is the start of a new era of master tag holders. Cause come next Sunday we dropping 2-3 inactive players from the list.

If going that route instead of a tournament, Maybe have Tora arrange some matches between potential holders and have community vote on which match they want to see instead. Otherwise if going by first and second most votes on individual players. then people like who are generally disliked by the community like yamon won't have a chance in winning a poll because of obvious reasons. Where as they may vote for a match featuring him and a more liked player such as Lux for a tag

What an imbecile... I have been master this whole time, you're the one who didn't challenge me. There's a reason for that, and it's not because I am the one that is scared. It's silly for SG and I to lose our tags because we don't get challenged. How about a set of rules that force people to have to choose a different master instead of these cowards always targeting knitter or whoever is being perceived as the weaker master and that person being the only one having to defend their tag all the time to these try hard scrubs like sepi?

The three of you have failed to play a single 1v1 game in over 90 days. I don't doubt the three of you are better than of the current and future master tag holders. However it makes little sense to keep three of you in the master tag series while your all so inactive. Like u8 said when your ready to begin playing again simply challenge one of the master tag holders and reclaim your status.

I can gift my master tag to Knitterhemd (if its ok with Tora) and Startale you can challenge Knitterhemd for it to get your tag back if/after you lose it.


And no Sepi, master tag holders have to earn their tags we can't just give them away.

Must have a master tag to obtain a legend. And even then the only way to obtain a Legend tag is to beat swift in a series.

Most active master tag holders are currently Swagier, Alf-attack, and braviet. Medivh, Jesk, 00steve, and Sepi are also holders but are currently not playing as many 1s.
Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread

Title: Re: Master tag challenge thread
Post by: ~ToRa~ on November 23, 2017, 07:26:44 AM
^^Well the reason for that is to avoid random players challenging for grand master and legend status.
If you really are as good as you say you are you shouldn't have any problems beating u8/alf/viet for a master tag before playing swift.
But if it's too much of a hassle for you so be it.

Post by: Tolean on November 24, 2017, 11:12:12 AM
Hmmm... I was thinking legend icon is given because of past and present achievements/things. So it's impossible to take it from smbd. Am i wrong? I am pretty sure that if some master chalange Swift when he is really rusty he can beat him... So master and Grand master can and should be chalanged. And who can chalange Swift? I mean there should be a rule. And by the way, just my opinion: Shotgun deserves a legend status. I know my opinion is not very heavy in this community but this is what think... But still should be really interesting to see a series of games between this good players, and between all masters. They are always interesting to watch/ learn.

I don't doubt Shotgun is one of the best on the server. But is he "the greatest ever," I think not.
"Legendary" status was given to swift and "master" status was given to 8 other players at the start of the series. Shotgun has months and months to challenge swift to obtain Legend status and he never did.
He is welcome to go thru to conventional means of obtaining it like everyone else.

Hmm Tora... You know better what is happening there. If there is a rule how to obtain the legendary status then everybody should go through it. Looks like i was thinking wrong about how to obtain it. I was thinking its smth given forever due to player's past and present achievements. For sure i am not the one to decide who is the best ever, so everybody must follow the rules if they want to have the icon of the best player/master/grand master or they can just consider themselves best players, but with no icon or let's say without official status.

that makes sense. is/should getting grandmaster be required to challenge legend? like master > grandmaster > legend

was also kind of thinking that legend was swift's honorary tag in recognition of achievements, is it part of the challenge system now? (kind of like how he says master tag was originally just for him and later got appropriated for other stuff haha)

I'll be interested in the legend / grandmaster tag if its fixed on the speed I play, even faster. If my opponent is allowed to pick maps on fastest speed I don't have any chance.

I never considered Legend tag because I thought Swift would just have all the settings in fastest.

Kagan you can suggest maps and I'll replace. I'd like to play x marks but it will be difficult if theres someone who wants to stream. I'm tired n' going to bed right now. I'll tell tomorrow the times/days I can play at.

Good choise)
We can play xmarks with streamer. Propose to change hsc bne to xmarks. But its not ladder map. We can also play "The River Kwai". Its pretty intereting duel map.

The problem with Xmark is that on high resources the map is very unbalanced, the left spot is very favored: it has bigger island and shore is closer to center.
On default/low res I would still favor left spot for the late game but it is much more balanced by the fact that you don't get to do the 3 shipyard juggs rush right away.
Making having exposed main base less of a problem.

For casting I think there is an obs version of the map out there but that would mean fixed order which means you would have to roll the dice on who starts left/right. In any case if you record all games with insight it would do the job fine we can always cast the games on stream after they are played if you keep the outcome a secret that way we are still discovering the outcomes "live" ;-).

@Tolean Shotgun barley plays and lost his master tag icon due to inactivity. He hasn't won a single tournament in years and hasnt played in any master tag challenges despite having master tag status for months. Is any of this his fault? No.

I don't doubt Shotgun is one of the best on the server. But is he "the greatest ever," I think not.
"Legendary" status was given to swift and "master" status was given to 8 other players at the start of the series. Shotgun has months and months to challenge swift to obtain Legend status and he never did.
He is welcome to go thru to conventional means of obtaining it like everyone else.
that makes sense. is/should getting grandmaster be required to challenge legend? like master > grandmaster > legend

was also kind of thinking that legend was swift's honorary tag in recognition of achievements, is it part of the challenge system now? (kind of like how he says master tag was originally just for him and later got appropriated for other stuff haha)

Il brought over (from vpn) / created the master tag for me exclusively, then burnt fought reluctantly to change that.

Tora gave me legend tag with intention that it was undisputed / exclusive, and quickly changed his stance when his initial intention met criticism / resistance from a few people.

luckily, my heart can only be broken once!

It is true you have that possibility but really it is not worth hoping in the first place most of the time.
You do get quicker on the islands but you don't have the time to build a barrack and cat on the island quick enough for it to make a difference as your opponent with 1 cat and a transport will manage to get you off pretty easily.
Hoping is much more risky than you'd think. plus if you fail to secure both island you still have the disadvantage of having a very exposed main base from water.

Not il, but Ldir. And you was one of three masters. But you definitely was the best one.
The first master was MasterKSA. He got this tag in 2004, when war2.ru was not known outside a small company. Here is the history page with KSA's master certificate (at the bottom):
http://war2.ru/oldsite/ (http://war2.ru/oldsite/)
Later, war2.ru became more popular, and a lot of people with good skills joined this server. In 2005 you beat MasterKSA 6-1 and got the "master tag" from Ldir. About the same time Gimli has beaten all the Russian players (including MasterKSA), and got the "master tag" too. So, only three players have historical "master tags" given by Ldir: you, Gimli and MasterKSA.
I even have somewhere replays of your competition with MasterKSA, if you want I'll try to find them.

@Antti_Kiviniemi
He has joined us during last FNW (Friday Night Warcraft, maybe the biggest ex-USSR tournament now). Kagan has won this tournament. So, you may be happy that you has beaten Kagan, as Swift has beaten MasterKSA.

There were a lot of good players from Zelenograd, joined War2.ru in the 2005. Gimli, Gadzila, KF. I can't say who was the best from this company, but Gimli was the first, so he has impressed Ldir and got his "master tag". After this (and Swift/KSA competition), Ldir decided to have no more new masters.

@Zelya That would be great - I would love those replays. Can you post them here so anyone wants to watch them may do so?

 I don’t recall ever losing to MasterSka - I thought I won 10-0 but you know what they say about memory :)
