U8 can defend 4 and gay the back of 5 at the same time without moving his screen b/c it's so wide! :)

Duda, thanks for hosting this tournament. There were a lot of people (which is great, nj), so it was a lot of work for you since there were technically 32 teams. You handled it very well and it seemed to have gone pretty flawlessly. Brackets were up fast, you responded to people was fast, your reiteration of rules when needed, and posting who is vs who to get people going.

That's a good amount of effort for someone doing this on his own time for the sake of the people/community. I've hosted some before and yes, it can involve a lot of effort. Easier to play than host.

So, thank you for doing what you do. You're a good guy with a good temperament who always seems to be in good spirits and have fun. If this is indeed your last one of the year; thank you for your contributions and I look forward to playing some games with ya.

Also, money bags Tora, I think you spoil us with your generous contributions. You are almost like the silent business partner sometimes. Nobody else is shelling out any money and you do this many times throughout the year. I hope anyone who gets a single cent is thanking you. Even those who don't should thank you for the opportunity and/or bringing the competition/number of competitors to the tournaments. I am for axing u8s winnings though. :) Nothing personal but he wins every one, lol. Maybe handicap him. :)

Why post for USA server? Player was being sarcastic.

Is the current ladder still not reporting GOW games? Blid was the one that did that. I don't see why he can't undo it.

That's funny. I was Googling trying to find some sort of online site where you can custom ladders and report games on. After a bit I gave up. I was wondering how many people would actually report it and would care?

If you do that, then you can do 2s ladder as well, right? What WG was asking for.

You would have to take a SS of every game then?

Historically I have liked 3s/4s but lately I've hated it. It doesn't contribute to me getting any better. I think the biggest reason I'm bored with 3s/4s is because of the skill discrepancy which makes spots super important. Any team can destroy any other team because if you get the right spots, your nib is dead in 2 secs and now it's a 3v4.

Personally, 1s is just too mentally exhausting. Maybe I'm just a pussy, lol.

Damn, totally thought training a few players would save the entire community/game. Plan B I guess.

Talrand was good 3 years ago. Ragnar was good at least 2 years ago. Duda hasn't played for more than 2 years yet?

Well, I would say that typically people say RE or need spot for the most part. Need room is also acceptable.

Again, what stupid shit is it that you called him out on?

I usually give people shit or something if they ban/boot someone for no reason. You hosted a bit the other day and you had full games. You don't NEED his host.

You can't let 1 person ruin the game for you...... Not everyone is nice. This is life. These are people. Not everyone in life, outside of wc, acts like a "grown ass man" either.

I'd be happy to help you out with things.

Ragnar, Talrand, Duda are all newer players who have become pretty good.

Tim, I've offered to teach many players who are new. Some say yes, then don't follow through. Some I've taught and they are still making CTs in 12 at entrance and milling way too soon when they are supposed to rush hard. Building placement, how to rush and defend gays are the first things I teach them. People only want to learn a little bit then do their own thing. Few people really want to get good or even average. 2k games in, they are still terrible and won't listen to anyone.

If I'm playing in 2s with SG/Swift/u8/Me, I'm well aware I suck compared to them and, in those games, they are mostly carrying me. Do I like playing in games with better people on my team? Sure. It beats having worse people on my team and having to do 2x the work to carry them. Am I aware that they would rather have someone better than me for them to have better games? I am very aware of that and often voluntarily take a seat if someone better comes in.

I'm not sure why this concept is lost on newer/lessor skilled people. Why do I have the ability to understand this and others don't? I 100% bet you that if someone much worse than you is on your team in a 2s or 3s, you get upset and/or bench them eventually. It's all relative my friend.

What pisses me off is that many people who bitch and complain about this NEVER HOST THEIR OWN GAMES.

What are you calling them out on?

Thanks. This topic comes up often and people like to argue what needs to be done or what we aren't doing, and everyone likes to give simple-ish answers. Now these are just 1 person's opinions on what would need to be done to get to where we hypothetically want to be at in this game. It doesn't include anyone else's (minus wg/player) opinions and possible alternative paths to take.

This would take a minimum of 6 people (at least 3 capable of programming) doing this. Because not all of these steps can be done concurrently, it'll take a minimum of 6 months probably to start actively interest/persuading people to join the server. A lot of leadership/admin support would be needed as well. Something we seem short of.

Also, war3 has their own private servers and ladders. Would also be a good idea to speak with them about it too. Another step!

Shit or get off the pot I say, lol.
