i have high pings there

i have an idea , let s make this home&away, home choose the server :twisted:


I actually think it is better to choose servers where both have decent pings. Also because you dont have to get used to new pings in every game. We also may be so many players that there are not time for rematches.

We though could add one or 2 servers that are better for people more south/east.

Added Official Tournament Servers (rather central europe for decent pings for all participants):

RenzuKoken - Good for players in south europe
Hiten - (germany) - Good for players in north europe.

If there will be rematches. (which it will be if only 4 people will play). Then make fair home and away matches. Only use different servers then if both players have the possability to get pingadvantage. Else use the server which will give you most equal ping both times.

also, these servers may slow down if so many players connect to them.. a server with 2/10 players is faster than 8/10 players , because the servers bandwidth is also limited this occures.

three or more servers is better to be played on.
We may write down pings of both sides and calculate an average ping. Maybe instead of goal difference we shall use ping difference if two teams get equal points.

we may think of this, as this is the one of the very begining online tournament, we'll test & see how can the tournament be improved by experiencing difficulties inside the tournament :D

offical chatroom can be used in the tournament to announce scores, to arrange servers etc.. so everyone participating to the tournament should install java :) or an irc client to connect irc.quake.net


btw. if i play against alkis , it will definetly be better to play in a greek server like the one called phoneix so i dont think we should announce the servers before the tournament just decide over the chatroom by checking the pings.. ( and also if a server is too slow, if two players agree , they maybe able to restart the game over another server )

I think it is a good idea to write down pings.

"If both players agree other servers can be used." (from first post)

As allready mentioned the two players who play can choose whatever server they like (as when you play Alkis). The reason why I posted 3 was because I think it is good to have official servers to avoid possible missunderstandings and disagreements.

But just as you say I think it is a good idea to see what works.

And of course people can restart a match in another server if both players agree.

No problem. :)

Shall we cancel the tournament then?

Torunament with 3 players feel very dull.

We could aim for Wednesday or Thursday next week. Alot of unlucky things this Thursday with cinemas and KO2 offline tournaments.

It is me you and Steve C.

Alkis and Gianluca dont seem to be able to play this time.

Shall I start a new thread about a tournament next Wednesday then. Hopefully people have booked their Wednesdays fo r CL and now are free on that day of the week.
