[Bigmoran Video] Origin of the Glinkz DDOS

12 September 2014 - 09:55 PM



Glinks made a DDOS clan recruitment video back in '09. He thought this footage was destroyed. Our main operatives uncovered this footage and we plan to expose the roots of the G-Link DDOS.

North American ESL Rules are Weird

03 September 2014 - 07:16 PM

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...

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.

Blizzcon 2014, weird tournament rules

30 August 2014 - 12:46 AM

The Arena Tournament rules have been posted at:

https://bnetcmsus-a....06136021022.pdf

While actually reading through them I found some weird things:

"THIS TOURNAMENT IS OPEN TO INDIVIDUALS WHO...



ARE NOT RESIDENTS OF THE STATES OF ARIZONA, CONNECTICUT, NORTH DAKOTA, MARYLAND OR VERMONT IN THE UNITED STATES, THE PROVINCE OF QUEBEC, CANADA, OR RESIDENTS OF THE AUSTRALIAN STATES OF VICTORIA, QUEENSLAND OR THE AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY"

What's the deal with that? Are there some laws in those states that prohobit participation?

Also, there is some weird claus on age restriction and account ownership. If your name isn't the same one as your account, it seems you cannot qualify.

Please sticky my thread
