Tournament start, League divisions, playoff and scheduling information and request for help spreading the Shifter map to servers.
I have emailed a lot of the server admins to update the Shifter map. If you have any connections, please make sure to forward it to your server admin. Here's the download link for Foogs final version of the map: http://www.mediafire.com/download/bdoqbovbl28849i/shifter.zip .
This weekend we will generate the leagues and on the forthcoming Sunday 8'th November the tournament will begin.
There were some back-and-fourth if we were going with three divisions or four. This was mostly my doing; as I felt that four divisions will give us a better chance to complete the tournament before people go MIA in the holiday season. We have however finally settled on three divisions with a focus on skill level and because the people active on the forum wanted more games.
As such there will be two big divisions for the regular players and the third will be reserved for the rookies and those that have a massive ping disadvantage playing in Europe + being not among the very best.
As we have two quite big divisions we will put together a schedule for playing your games. The schedule is meant as help and wont be punished if you don't follow it; as long as you are playing games.
There will come penalties for being unactive however. The worst offense you can do is not showing up on an agreed time for match, second to that is not scheduling your games with enemy teams.
If you are generally 'acting' unreachable and thinking "We can catch up later", we will probably notice and give enemy teams a WO based on the schedule we setup.
None of us have time to waste on people that don't show an interest in playing. In general idling on IRC in #div99 is the safest way for us to notice you are around. Seeing as #quakeworld is kinda idle we don't check the channel to often - but if you prefer that is also an option.
Double check, right now, that you have left an IRC channel on your team profile.
As we only have two none-european teams; you are not required to play outside Europe. But I would like to encourage players to show some solidarity with the minority and offer to play one map on their continent, especially if you believe your team to be much stronger and you won map one.
Most importantly this would be a nice gesture! Especially to Svit and Dev (O Clã) in division three, as Svit is returning to Quake from long absence :)
Remember to always ping up, don't make enemy team ask for it, the maximum you HAVE to ping is 90ms, but pinging equal is an even greater gesture!
Under are the expected divisions: If you believe you have been misplaced, contact us =)
