Anyone interested in a small Springers only Evo tourney?

Post by Forboding Angel » 15 Apr 2014, 06:51

Just a thought. Get some people like anarchid, ikinz, etc. Basically people that normally play in the get-togethers to do a little tourney (4 - 8 players?) and I'll stream and cast the whole thing?

The players being existing springers. I can advertise it on steam and crap too, so maybe players get to see more experienced players playing for once and maybe have some fun with having casting and crap?

I dunno, was just a thought.

Quite a few steamers are already on the ball though, seen good performance from a few.

I'd play.

It would be nice to have weekly weekend events if possible. I'll have to think up some ideas on what those events could be. Ideas welcome.

Imo there are already enough videos on youtube with spring-players.
Better to have minimum requirements (like 10 matches played) and then let the new people play.
Can see played matches on replay site.

You're missing the point of it. The point would be to show off a higher level of play than they are used to.

How do you think many of us learn new strategies in starcraft other than watching things that the pros do? I have refined several toss and zerg builds based upon things I have seen huk and scarlet do which are within my mechanical range.

The same applies to all games. You see someone doing something better and how they did it, you repeat it, Etc.

That and I don't really feel like trying to cast 2 noobs playing an hour long game that should be over in 9 minutes.

Think people interessted in such videos have already watched the existing similiar videos. Imo "community-wise" it seems more worthwhile to include steampeople, otherwise it gives bit strange impression.
A few steam-newbs have more played games than old spring-people, so should at least do okay.

I played three games yesterday in evo, losing two to steam "noobs".

Ofc that was teams and my allies insisted on making protectors rather than combat units, but yeah. Nowhere as clueless :)

As far as I know, most steam players just build lots of defense and then get super weapons. Since they have only played against each other, it may be hard for them to get any better even though they may have played many games. So, it may be a good idea to show them another way of playing Evolution RTS. The channel has lots of videos for them to watch, but few would bother watching all of them especially when some are from... less serious games I would say. For instance, the two videos on the top of the list and are watched by most are from a speed metal game and a 2v1 game. It may be worthwhile to recommend a few videos on the steam forum I think.

Anarchid and commonplayer, I need your email addresses or challonge usernames so I can add you to the brackets.

Still trying to get in touch with Quanthalis. Haven;'t seen him in the lobby. I did get in touch with KoyoteKamper though, and he is in.

Also, 5pm GMT. Same time as the get-togethers.
