this weekend's tourny

So I tried to make a tourny on the test site : http://www.test.mastersleague.net/Competition/event=16.html
but ran into some problems. First of all I cant add players and dont know how i would have to accept subscription etc. And secondly it is not showing up when you click competitions, you first have to click on the tap link, which is kinda confusing as you dont need to do that for all the other tournies. Heeeeeeeeeelp! Blum 3

Re: this weekend's tourny

Here is the reason:
When you have created the tournament you have set the option "user created event" to yes" (though you are an admin). On the main competition settings we have disallowed user created events though (therefore the tournament does not show). Even though user created events are a nice feature and maybe an option in the future allowing this would enable every site member to create his own tournament. This wouldn't work right now I think.

So what you need to do is to re-create the tournament and set user created event to "no".

On a sidenode:
I think we should postpone this Fast Raid II tournamet to next weekend. Not that another tournament would not be nice. But I doubt that many would play since we did not have any kind of announcement.

My suggestion would be to work on a good invitation/announcement, on the rules and on the settings an post it this weekend. This way the players would have 6 days to find out about the tournament and prepare. We kinda missed to make an announcement on time for tomorrow Sad

Oh yeah, thats my bad. I completely forgot to make an announcement. I guess next weekend is the best option now. And a good thing: I got holidays now, so now I can also host tournies through the week I-m so happy

Absolutely Smile
Just lemme know what kind of tourney you'd like it to be this time.
Oh... and the ladder function of the league engine is now operational (bugs fixed). We could think about launching a ladder but it would make me feel kinda bad since WG clan is trying to set up a similar event. What do you think?

For next week lets just call it Fast RAID 2 and it should be standard, with random land and as special I think nation: X-pack would be nice. I first suggested random offensive, but with random offensive you can still get every nation (even lakota or dutch :S).

I have also come up with another idea that we can maybe use for the tournament after that. Instead of you choosing your own nation, you choose the nation of your opponent :D. So then if you know your opponent well you give him the nation he sucks with the most Blum 3

Re: this weekend's tourny

All right then Jag. Let's set up the Fats Raid 2 tournament and the ladder. I must say I love the idea of chosing the nation for your opponent. Can't wait to have a tourney with this setting Smile Sure you don't want to use it for next tournament already? Wink

As for the ladder: Until I make some manuals it might take a week or two. Should be ready between Fast Raid Vol. II and Vol. III. Once people know how it works it takes almost no admin work. People arrange matches and enter results on their own.

Hehe ok lets have that on Fast RAID 2 already. Random land and pick nation of the opponent (no blacklist nation of course :p). Any idea for a banner yet that captures these settings?

Re: this weekend's tourny

I am going to try and come up with a banner - though I am all but a gfx artist Wink Meanwhile you can set the tourney up. Most likely a 16-player setup will suffice for this time as well.

As for the rules etc: I do not think that there are going to be many changes from the 1st tournament. Soo I reckon it will be mostly a copy/paste thing.

I tried making a tourny on the test site that has a sign up right now, so I can practise with the whole signup thing. But somehow I cant join it. How come? its called "just a test". When I click the apply button [...], then it says: just a test is not open to Join / Sign-Up

Re: this weekend's tourny

I think it was just a time/date issue Jaguar. I got the same error message. Tried setting the signup time 2 hours ahead (8:00) and then it worked. Like I said the system uses the server time. Just need to find out what this server time exactly is....
