Yup, ESL tournament realm had a similar signup but you played on a ESL TR realm with a ladder.

I actually made an appearance at DH2014 and I met up with people from twitch who were involved with the dota 2 / cs tournies that where there, I talked about the game from my perspective as a professional player and we actually shared a lot of opinions. All I'm saying is a lot of people will be VERY surprised about the future of this game in the esport world :)

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)

See it's funny you call him a kid when from my experience with your posts you behave like a 5 yr old

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?

Considering there is a 20$ charge for each person that wants the tourney realm, do you really think theyre wasting money or resources on it? lol
Why monkeys? Im starting to believe these monkeys have been snake bitten.. A whistling Dennis Rodman and a snake bitten monkey are no different. For these tree dwellers hath stolen the eggs of the momma parakeet. The howler monkey howls at dawn and dusk, the spider monkey yelps "yeeeeee yeeeeee" through the forest. Even the cud chewing antelope ease drop from a far. Tranquilize the monkeys and put them in a zoo, says the man with the red beard and boonie hat. And now I've got shit pie on my face?

This method has been used for a long time; it's how we used to schedule matches when I was involved in competitive team leagues in a lot of older video games. We didn't have many 'tournaments,' instead we had leagues spanning many weeks that involved negotiated scheduling by team captains.

It worked pretty well then, but that's not what it sounds like ESL is doing. It sounds like ESL is assigning match times, and then saying "show up or lose."

ah just re read the rules again and as i said it just depends on how ESL is running it and it looks like you have a 10 minute time limit the day of? I would hope they would give you a scheduled date to play then allow you to confirm with the team you're facing to see if that suits you just in case a scenario such as this came along : make a date for oh October 13th 2014 - 7 out of 8 teams cant make that date so you automatically default the tournament ot that one team that could?

that would be such a horrible way to run a tournament and I really hope it doesn't turn out to be that way :(

Sounds a bit like how Diablo 2 PvP leagues used to be, but I'm not sure what the set game times are about. It's also only played during one weekend? Huh?
