DkH.GoOdy and eSa.SchniblOr agreed on holding a bo9 for us ;)
that's very cool for they're real professional gamers :). And ragna (clanmate+contact) is pretty sure he'll be able to get iv.Grummel or Yard for shoutcast-on german ofc, dunno if we have enough reputation in the german community, maybe it would be good to work together with www.broodwar.de-with those players, we'll get a lot of interest and listeners^^
I would prefer staying with the old BWMN mappack. We need to promote this more, I want that somehting like 1/4 of the active broodwar gamers have it on their hard drive and 1/8 of broodwargamers play them from time to time. Only if BWMN pack 1 is somewhat successful, it makes sense to make and release a new one!
There has been _one_ event on the BWMN mappack yet. I hope you agree thats not really enough. After BWMN mp2 would be released, the old one would be outdated. So that would not be fair to the maps in the first pack.
It's not fair to outdate the first map pack. When the time come to this map pack to be known and play a lot at many places, and then the people will learn the style to play them, and then you will outdate it? I don't even think that this is possible... So the better solution is to update the map pack, NOW! Before it's too late and well known.
Look at this way:
bwmn is a rock group, bwmn mappack was our first album. Now we will tour around and perform our hits at last some month before we do a new album. Even if LGI is the new front singer, we still will perform our radio hits^_^; Your maps get exposure via MOTW too.
Maybe we should set a release date for bwmn mappack 2 (maybe end of february?) and until then those discussions are muted :D
