Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 4th edition (Org. week!)

alpha: what are those weird units in the background of your instructional picture? You know wesnoth is at 1.10 right? :P

Question regarding the first round; if we find a time can we start before next Monday? In particular, it feels a shame to waste the weekend.

Another poor soul falling into the trap of real life ... :P

I just wanted to doublecheck: so this means the opening ceremony will be on September the first? If so, is it possible to put a time on it so people can try keep it free?

The Nerds would be up for training games I think. You can PM us to try set a time if you're interested and we can post here when it's finalised.

Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 4th edition (Sign up now

What's with the love of 4 hour sessions? If teams can play for 2 hours each evening but they can never quite make a 4hr period then they're not allowed to play at all? That's crazy. Showdowns are also a stupid idea, lets give the players no say in when the game will be arranged? I know you'll say th...

Re: The Grand Tag! 2v2 Tournament - 4th edition (Sign up now

I agree with the tentacles regarding round lengths. No reason to give first round 3 weeks and finals only 1. IIRC the previous TGT finals had massive observer attendance. Wesnoth tournaments do seem to suffer a drop of interest as they progress but TGT has not had many problems in this regard I thin...

Good work Dunno!

Any chance we can get a Message of the Day on the MP server? I've put up a message game for the moment.

There will be a Nerds 2.0 when I find a teammate. :D

Re: Unit Spamming as a Strategy

I've found them to be good at flailing around helplessly for 2/3 of the day, Exactly. Then, in the remaining 1/3 of the day, they kill everything . Having the large proportion of your army made up of a single unit is reasonably common, but it's almost always an improvement to mix some support in th...

Re: Luck?

For most of the games out there if a player plays twice as good as his opponent, you know he almost always wins. n Wesnoth, however, playing twice as good means he wins twice as many games as his opponent. Played 300 games, lost 100 of them probably. It's hard to quantify exactly what you mean by '...

Re: Standard Wesnoth Tournament

The 3min timer might be part of the reason for the low sign up. 5min timer is standard in most MP games. A 3min timer could be fun to try out and it depends what you're trying to do, but I thought you should know. When I'm starting a tournament I often host a game in the wesnoth lobby with title: 1v...

Re: (TAF)The Alternate Frontier, 1v1 wesnoth tournament

Congratulations abhijit!

Thanks to all the players for taking part and Wintermute for his help. I hope everyone had fun :) .

I shall go update the front page for the final time then I'll probably switch to the alternate era thread to discuss future era changes.

Re: (TAF)The Alternate Frontier, 1v1 wesnoth tournament

Castoridae and I played games 1 and 2 today. Sorry for not letting people know here, but we weren't sure we'd get to play today. You might remember this from the rules: The games for the finals will be pre-picked by me, or if I am a finalist, I will entrust the task to someone else. So I had asked W...

Re: (TAF)The Alternate Frontier, 1v1 wesnoth tournament

Bast appears to have gone MIA again, so he's being ruled out with regard to the Grade 2 play-offs. I talked to Danniel on the server and he said that he would play anyone he sees on the server but if not, to count the rest of his games as walkovers against him. So I'll leave him out also. That then ...

Re: (TAF)The Alternate Frontier, 1v1 wesnoth tournament

It's now tomorrow and past 2000GMT, so you might be wondering what happened in the playoff between Duthlet's Drake Adventurer and The Black Sword's Undead Warlock on Astral Port. Game of village threatening and pillaging where the Undead managed to get the upper hand with bats and others sneaking in...

Re: (TAF)The Alternate Frontier, 1v1 wesnoth tournament

TBS vs Duthlet should take place tomorrow at 2000GMT. I also completed the survey, attached to this post. It might be better to PM the response to me rather than spamming this thread. I'd really appreciate if the players could complete as much of it as they can. Any non-TAF player with thoughts on t...
