Nice job. Kudos for Tora for putting up some serious money for this tournament as well as hosting it.

Go catch Marty McFly and Doc before they leave!

Damn, nice. It's def cool and what I was envisioning but I think people will need the ability to switch resolutions on the fly or it'll cut the population in half and/or only sg, tk, and me can play together. SG will kill himself.

They went 1-2 in round 2.

Why not just pair up the rests of them? I understand it won't be as fair of teams for them but if they want to...

He mentioned he was getting paid but I didn't think he works for them. Either way.

Actually, a good point to bring up, which has been brought up before, is the whole RU part. I think that hinders new people quite a bit. And then you still have your port forwarding because I'm not so confident HP works as many people cannot host still. Even new people. Does it still say it's a virus when you DL it? (before this last recent post about it)

And I'll make a new version for harry as well where he can see less, 320x240

lol touche

I randomly came upon this earlier today actually. There are at least 3 videos of GRUBBY playing War2. 70k subscribed and has no idea bout RU (at least the video I watched and he spoke about how it was only on GoG- he was also paid for the video by GoG/Bliz I believe so....) because nobody had a bot or anything advertising about it, which I mentioned so many times.

223 comments and a ton are players who used to play and loved the game. Such an opportunity lost. Probably the biggest one we will ever have. You want to spend money, have his ass talk about it.


Also could be parts of the same video, idk.

I regretfully choose Goblin.  ::) :poo:

Rose Petal/NWTR

18-2 of which, 50% of the people on here don't play? (as u8 mentioned) I don't even know who half of these people are in the first place, hah.

Still missing a large part of the population though. PS- Don't ask all 40 of player's smurfs as 40 votes. It would be funny if we got 20 votes of 150 people and 120 quit!!! (not realistic I know, but proving a point)

Truth is, I'm not sure there are enough dedicated/competitive players to win the vote (no change) anyways. You'll have someone who logs on 5x a week with a vote and then someone who logs on every other week ("for fun") with a vote. Or even every 3 weeks. Either way, 1 vote is 1 vote.

 I agree with Fois though. If at least 75% agreed, then it is what it is at that point. SC2 FTW!!!  :'(

You shouldn't tip your own team if you see the whole map, right.

Could you though? Sure.

Could you if you can't see them? No

I'm not sure what this has to do with stats.

first of all, screen should no to be big, too see two spot like 4 5, also it will be weird to play 32x32 to see all map

What he said. ^^^^^^ I think?

Let's be honest, the polls are pretty useless. Especially in making big decisions. Although, I do enjoy hitting the button. We can't have 14 votes represent 100+ players. I'm not sure how you would get majority of the population to "vote' in a sense, besides maybe verbally. Maybe......

At the end of the day, if the powers that be, whoever they be, decide to do so, then it is what it is as long as I get to say I told you so!!!  :thinking: I'll do this before EQ does it to me!  :salty: :salty: Haha <3

While the ideas are flowing, I wanted to give some feedback on the obs feature I've been meaning to say.

It's obviously great. Everyone uses it and loves it. The only thing I think that could be improved is mid-game obs. Historically, when people say, "last", the other team allies them with no vision allowing them to watch the rest of the game, with their teams vision only, without being eliminated. (also you doofs do it when someone has 20 blds still for some ungodly reason- side rant)

It's more of a unwritten rule that when you are obsing (saying "last" before the new feature came around) you can still only see your team and it's okay to verbally help them. But when you use the new obs feature mid-game, you can now see everyone's vision. So, now it's like an ethical dilemma because now you really shouldn't say anything.

So, if there could be something where, when you use the obs feature, it only shows who you are allied to. There is probably a better way though, as you can ally someone before you say "obs me". It would also screw over the people in melee who did not get obsed in the lobby on accident. It was an example but, you get the point.

I understand both sides and I think they both have valid points. It more just comes down to, what is best for the people/game I would say.

If we think about this from a basic ideology and move towards a more advanced one, these may be some options. (I know nothing about this stuff or if it is even possible but I would like to at least throw out some ideas which could trigger more)

1) Being able to change the resolution on login, while in channel, or ideally in the game lobby would be great (other games can do it while you are online). The redownload part I don't picture people doing to change it back and forth.

2) Can you mandate maps to require certain resolution restrictions. IE- 3+ GOW maps for each mandated resolution or you could get more advanced where you can select 2 of the 3 and then one where you can use any of the 3 options. (not ideal)

3) If you are able to make the resolution change in the lobby, you have a dropdown as to what resolution options you can choose from based on the host's restrictions or even if there are no restrictions.

Maybe there is a middle ground that could be made to please everyone and we can work together as a team.

Tk/SG are right in the sense that it definitely changes the game. You can't do this optional thing. Let's be honest, that is just a way for people to say FU to the people who don't want the change and is not a practical solution to anything. It's balls deep or don't even put it in.

Let's look deeper into this though. Why do it in the first place?

Do we simply want to change the gameplay because it would be something different/new? It's been how many years that this game has been out and 95% of the people have played this for.... lets say... 10ish+ years? They obviously like it, as they continue to play. Do they want change? (10+ years... think about it)

How many of those people will discontinue playing/play less if this is implemented? (Not going to lie, I've been waiting for a reason) Let's also not be swayed by the fact that we have probably have 10% of the population that use this forum.

Some of those 95%ers would like it for sure, but my own opinion is that most will not. I'm going to bet the more hardcore gamers (with exceptions of u8/player/mac/eq/etc) and more will resist this.

Is this an attempt to entice new players into playing the game by making it seem a bit less aged? Is this possibly a new direction war2 wants to take in the sense that the older players/ones who will drop off are less important than the aspect of future players? (there is a difference between ideology and practicality) Is that a calculated risk?

I personally am not looking to undo many of the things I've learned (Yes SG, it's not a lot, ha ha). I admit, I've been known to resist change. These are simply my questions and opinions.

On a side note: I am not trying to knock Fois/Mistral or anyone who has dedicated a lot of time and effort into any of this. I like the creativity and think that they enjoy doing this as well. I also appreciate their very neutral approach to presenting their creations (IT'S ALLLIVEEEE!!!!). I thank them for that.
