NC too longggggggg

Postby  thepitzaboy » Tue Aug 01, 2017 9:14 am

I mean the games are awesome, there is so much good games a tournaments like this produces its amazing and kudos for all the effort. However, the format seems way too long. At this stage we are down to 2-3 games per weekend and seemingly this will go on for 2-3 months. The players all have to work around their personal lives to schedule and play this. Have we ever contemplated a faster tournament format. I somehow feel a knockout invitational played over 1-2 weeks is much more favorable for the players. Even better we can do this few times a year. Just my 2 cents.

If there was no LAN, then the gold league would be completed by the 10th September, so I don't know where you are getting 2-3 more months from?

The only issue is some teams inability to get the games scheduled and played. I mean there are teams that have completed their group stage while the other teams have like two outta three games yet to be played. And when they do schedule the games the threads go on many pages because of zero value posts like "hey when?" instead of "can you play x day on x time?".

The deadlines should be enforced better, now people just treat it like whatever. The phrase "If admins allow for extra time" basically is a given and teams know this so they dont even bother to get the games played in time.

Hey community joker, i wont argue with you. Keep entertaibing.

Robo if there is no lan then at the current rate it will take multiple weeks. 2-3 months is probably an exaggeration.

Von - welcome to aoc scheduling. You will never solve this problem instead shorter formats is better is my thinking.

Problem can be solved with a scheduling app, it's just forum scheduling that's messy.

I dont mind it being long and having 2-3 set of games. I dont live to watch AOC, there is other stuff to do, why do you want 10 games per week, are you going to watch them all?, do you think all games will be streamed? why do you need to have the winner in few weeks?

Why make a short tournament that we will have once every x years? Just be patient, or go live under a rock for two moths and come back and watch all in youtube or recs in marathon like its GOT.
