EzPz Series - Tournaments, Invitationals, Fun!
« on: June 18, 2017, 07:04:39 pm »
Howdy fine folk of L4DNation 8)
I've come yet again to spread the word regarding Tournaments and whatnot.



About the Series:
Originally I wanted the EzPz Series to only provide 1v1~3v3 Tournaments.
But, I like the name, and I wish to host Invitational Matches and 4v4 Tournaments under it as well.
The Prize Pool will always be €50 per player (1v1 = €50 prize pool, 4v4 = €200 prize pool)

Invitational Matches?
The idea is to create an "easy-to-cast" and fun to watch Matches  (basically Scrims v2.0)
These Matches contain two teams that will fight for honor, glory, and a few bucks (Ranging between €40~€80).

How is it Hosted?
We handle and setup our Tournaments, Matches, Match Reporting, Disputes, Rules and what not through Battlefy.
We're pretty much using a standard ruleset in every Tournament, but they do change, so make sure you read to what you agree to during sign up.
And yes, I know using a 3rd party website yet again isn't very attractive, but have faith, Battlefy is very simple to use and causes a lot less clutter.

As for the Servers, thankfully most of the community and I personally have a healthy relationship with the Hotmess and EMC Staff.
The admins allow for quick and painless updates to Configs and desired changes, which is why they're the Servers we use in our Tournaments.

Casting
You can contact us through our Steam Group or on this very page to sign yourself up for Invitational Streaming, on approval you get "Priority-Streaming" which basically means that you are the to go to Streamer for Invitational Matches and have priority on regular Tournaments.
As Priority Streamer, You will be judged on the professionalism of your Streams (in terms of choice of Casters and such).

Please keep in mind that anyone that wants to, can Stream regular Tournament Matches, unless the Teams don't want you to.
When you're a Priority Streamer, you however are always allowed to Stream, teams are not allowed to lock/kick you out.

Its great to see tournaments being hosted other than just 4v4 matches. However I think for tournaments to fulfil quota, a tournament management module is going to be needed to be integrated into L4dnation, as I cant see many players bothering with alternative websites. Its time to get rid of the useless sections on this website and really take advantage of the player centralisation l4dnation has developed over its life time..

While I agree, it's a pipedream, even if a tournament module did get integrated and all these old stats (Servers and WatchL4D for example) get updated, it's not going to be anything professional or clean-looking.

I cant see many players bothering with alternative websites.

In my experience, every attempt up until now has been a single tournament sign-up with little to no hype from the Host himself as well as links leading to more links and even more links whilst having to use multiple sites at the same time.
I feel Battlefy is very attractive in terms of how clean it looks, how easy it is to gather a team, report scores/disputes, view rules and contact-info and pretty much everything else you need as a player and Tournament host.
No more requirement of Steam Group this, report scores there and Brackets here. It's all centralized.

Considering my project is intended to be long-term, I think a one-time sign up isn't too much to ask for.
