I still really don't get why sponsors would give him money for this. The community isn't as large as release and there is no observer mode so you won't get casters and the coverage they provide. If he's using his own money that's fine, but sponsors want viewers.

The "sponsors" are himself and 1 other guy who wanted to help out the DoW3 community.

Games can always be casted through replays - just have to have strict enforcement to upload them. Maybe go as far as to prohibit live streams so that the casting channel (whoever does it) doesn't get overshadowed.

But ya, observer mode is required for good tournament showings. But even some SC2 tournaments were casted through replays when the lag was too much.

Important to note that the tournament begins July 21st, Japan Standard time.

That is July 20th for most of us. For me it's about 6am thursday morning, on the 20th.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to participate due to work. Is it Double elimination BO1, or BO3? If BO1 then perhaps it'd be possible to play since I'll have around 5.5 hours from the start of the tournament until I have to go to work, which theoretically it should be possible to finish the tournament in that timeframe. If it's BO3 then that's unlikely since each round can be roughly 1-2 hours depending on game length.

Can't join because I am not home that weekend sad.gif

Pretty shit time to start a tournament though. It starts at Friday 2PM Dutch time. Plenty of people are working at that time. I am not sure what audience he wants to target, but starting on a Saturday would be a waaaaaaaay better choice.

friday 21st july 21:00 JST ? = 14:00 CET ? a friday afternoon ?
If this is not a typo, it seems it's a tournament targetting asian audience then.
No way I will ask my employer a day off (or half a day) for a tournament I know I won't win.
Sorry guys, I'm not in.

If it's a typo though, and it's 21:00 CET or UTC, I'm definitely in.


PS : huhu, right now, it's vindicareX vs yogimanz 1st round

I've mentioned the Time zone to False Motive but I'm not sure how seriously he took my concern - I'll show him this thread though.

I think that 15 100$ cups would be better than one 1500$. Anyway 100$ is a very good prize for dow3 now and in this way we will have more games and more events. Or may be 4 100$ qualifiers and than 1000$ ro 8 or ro 16.
