THERE IS NO TOURNAMENT

REALM. ALL GAMES WILL BE

PLAYED VIA BATTLE NET

ORGANIZED QUEUING OVER

ONE WEEKEND

http://www.nationale...ow/news/247385/

"The online bracket will be played until eight teams remain, and those eight teams will advance to a LAN final."

So is the whole online tournament one GIANT bracket that lasts until top eight. How do they expect teams to organize queues into each other?

Oh wait...

http://www.nationale.../wow/cups_guide



5.Contact your opponent

The first place to try contacting your opponent is in-game through Battle.net. Go to the match page and you will find their Battle.net nickname and character code underneath their ESL nickname.
If you can't find them on Battle.net, then try:
  • Writing a comment on the match page
  • Chatting with the match chat (matches at the bottom right and click your match)
  • Cup Chat
Keep trying for at least 10 minutes to contact your opponent via all methods before reporting to an admin in Cup Chat!


6. Play your match

Once you are in contact with your opponent then you can play your match.



7.Enter results, upload screen...

Go to "matches" then match setup to enter the result, then the other player can confirm the result.
Either player should upload the screenshots of the match by going to the match page and then "Upload matchmedia"

So teams literally have to take SCREENSHOTS of themselves winning so that the organizer can update the bracket and detirmine future games? What is this?

More importantly, how does ESL or Blizzard expect to manage organizing queues if it's on some dodgy honor system. The TR ladder was a good, albeit not perfect, method to organize top 8 teams. This apparent GIANT ladder system could potentially be an organizational disaster.

It DOES seem like a really Half ass / shitty way to organize this and go about it. I have a feeling there is gonna be alot of "well, they cheated so were not going to agree that they won the match," Etc etc.
Ya know, i was born in west philadelphia. I spent most of my days on the play ground. Usually i just be chillin, relaxin, trying to act cool by shooting some b-ball at school. But on this one, terrible, dreary, horrid day, a couple of guys that were certainly up to no good starting making trouble.. I was the first one of course to step up and fight them back. Because of this, my mom got scared and made me move in with my aunt and uncle in bel-air.

Is there still gonna be a TR or PTR to duel people on? Because if you're alliance on a bumblef**k server that doesn't cross realm into anything big cant you just dodge a bunch of teams since you won't be able to war game them

Hopefully there's atleast a server that people can use, otherwise it's going to be a disaster trying to cross realm into other people (with 5 in a party to port you to the right server) to war game and screenshot wins

actually ....

this is how ESEA organizes their games via their website - two team captains discuss details and come to common ground on a date

both teams log on ... play the games and record and/or screenshot the end game score and report it via uploading or what have you.

its different from the usual Tournament Realm but not exactly pointless or awful

just depends on how THIS particular website does things and how well its organized via blizzard and if it works just as well as ESEA does with their matches then this would be quite awesome

they could just be cutting the tournament realm out of it due to them not wanting to spending money on it and figure if you're going to want to qualify for a tournament then you already have a fully geared character of your choice and already have the comp in mind that you want to play so why waste resources on a new realm?

if you have an legit job that makes you quite a bit of money... i dont think sacrificing that for a gaming tournament is at the top of your list of priorities.

if you have a job that you just have then im sure you have days off that allow you to be flexible for games - its not just you playing its 5 other people as well so that means they all have to make their schedules fit and some people would go as far as to taking a day or two off to play in this tournament and if that is the case thennnnnn maybe your job isn't that serious?

all about priorities playboy.

WHERE IS JONTE ?

I HEARD HE MADE AN APPEARANCE AND WE SHALL BE SURPRISED ABOUT THE OUTCOME OF HIS VISIT, I THOUGHT BLIZZ REPS TOLD HIM THIS GAME IS GOING PLACES PVP-WISE


rofl stupid swe kid, and stupid blizzard really. I know of said method and it'd be perfectly fine to use IF this was any other game than WoW.

Not running TR quals and not running team system over CR system is absolutely fucking dumb.

I don't particulary give a fuck or two, I just enjoy the amusement of witnessing all the wrong turns blizz keeps taking. Smart company (y)

Its not actually as bad as it sounds, But it is more hassle for us than the usual TR Like they would not swap the format from the original for no reason. Something was most likely wrong on blizzards end and they decided to do a new approach.
