So we got some popularity, maybe it's time to organize some show matches, replays of those events are generally quite popular. Also, a real battle report (with pictures) would be even cooler, because you can comment on map specific strategies and stuff on this.
So who could be considered for this? I don't think it has to be like fisheye vs blackman to make some noise. I would love something like Frozenarbiter vs mireille. Is FA on that level?
hmmm or we do it this way: Each player choses 3 maps out of the BWMN mappack or/and the MotW, then each player can eliminate one of his opponents choices, so it would be 4 maps in the end, reasonable for a BO9 imo. It sounds kinda complicated, but this way they actually play maps they _like_ to play.
Maybe we should have a list of players we want for that, we PM guys, if the decline, we just take the next one on the list.
As I stated above, my first two picks would be mireille and FA, I would actually also consider travin as he is a good player himself (travin vs FA would be boring though, they play each other too often anyway). Well my brother has contact with some pretty good players, and is good himself, but I don't know if he would have time and motivation to play or even contact the guys he is in contact with (mondragon being one of them :O)
Hm I think that would be too much extra for just a showmatch. It is not a league or something.
I love my idea, let them pick the maps from the BWMN mappack, we do it like this for like 3-4 showmatches, and then we have a new bwmn mappack and they pick from this.
or we can use that feature to highlight certain authors? Like only using Travs map for the first show match and so on. perhaps start of with panschks method to make sure there is interest, and then move on with the author method. Then we could do col personal banners and stuff
I think BWMN mappack only would be enough, think of the players who don't want to spend too much time on picking the maps probably. MotW gets promoted by motwtour, but the BWMN mappack is not really used yet, and offers a nice mix of maps. And as I said, newcomers like LGI will get their chance later when BWMN mappack volume 2 comes out^_^;
Map picking from _only BWMN mappack (not motw unless they are in the pack ^_^^;)_
4 out of 17, everyone picks 3, then opponent disables one.
I PM mireille on gg.net, travin asks FA, and then we'll see?
