GoNext 2019 Tournament!
« on: November 02, 2019, 12:21:11 pm »

Tournament 2019
Hosted By: Spoon
Prize: TBA




About:

GoNext 2019 will be a 16 team, 8 week, double elimination tournament. Because of the double-elimination format, this means losing teams will get a second chance to make it to the finals! All scheduling, match results, cast announcements, as well as sign-ups will all be handled on the Steam Group!


The tournament is set to be played on NextMod v1.0.4 please make sure that if you encounter any config errors, you report them directly to me so that they can be fixed ASAP! And for server owners, if you need help installing NextMod, feel free to contact me!


SIGNUPS ARE OPEN UNTIL THE 25TH OF NOVEMBER!


Your admins for this tournament are all very approachable and you may already know them, please if you have an issues contact one of us.



Will this be an international tournament?

Because of issues in previous tournament involving servers, and scheduling, I've decided that this tournament will NOT be international. That being said, this can change depending on how sign-ups go. Please feel free to sign your team up just make sure you put the correct region. So what regions are allowed to play? At the moment, it will be NA / EU / SA only.


Is there a sign up limit?

Yes. The tournament is planned to only have a total of 16 teams. Don't let this discourage you from signing up your team though, depending on how many signups there are anything is subject to change!


Will games be casted?

We will try our best to ensure that every game is casted or at the very least that it is streamed. This does mean you will need to make sure you contact a tournament admin before your scheduled match, so we can get the casters and streamers set up. This does unfortunately mean there may be a slightly longer waiting time for you (Although they're usually pretty quick! ;] )


Map Pool?   

Big thanks to team Pubstar for helping with the map list!

Note For Server Owners: Please use the same versions of custom campaigns as linked above, and make sure you are using the newest version of NextMod! You can follow my GitHub to see when I release updates. Inconsistencies across servers is what has lead this tournament to not be international, it can lead to unfair home/away games.

Sign ups look pretty sad so far. Not sure why. Maybe not a whole lot of people know about it?

RU teams count as EU or they are not allowed to play at all? There is whole 2 or so RU teams.

Dude I am so sick of you posting this horse shit in EVERY tournament thread

Every last tournament there will be at least one post from your dumb ass about how few signups there are (usually more)

Every last tournament 90% of the competitors will sign up at the last minute and get 30+ teams in the end

And where are you to admit you're wrong? nowhere

GTFO

What are you even talking about? What is that random accusation? Where it even came from?

These sign-ups actually have 0 teams so far and it never happened before this late into registration process (it's been up for weeks).

It's hilarious how wrong you are. I am waiting for an apology.

He's not wrong though, you always make pessimistic comments on tournaments and even the games in it before they even happen.
You just gotta chill buddy, being around as long as you have, you'd think you know by now how it generally goes.
Also, think of it this way, if you put time and effort into setting something up for the community, do you feel it's necessary for someone to point out on your project's page that it's not working out too well? I don't think you'd see any point or value in that comment, I think you'd be well aware what's going on yourself.

Anywoo.
I see Adam's team signed up just now which I didn't expect.
Surely Pubstars will be back as they also helped with the map pool, Criss will gladly have another stab at a tournament and it's likely that Johzy will too.
That's already 4 confirmed teams, you'll get plenty of random filler teams from SA (this likely depends on if the rules allow for players banned by SMAC to bypass their ban on other servers, but still) add in a ruskie team or two and you're set.

He is. No, I am not.

You chill and stop come up with things I didn't do please. It generally goes that by this point a lot or at least some teams would register. Feel free to prove otherwise.

Do we know specific reason why it's different this time around? Do you know? Is it because teams are even more laid back than usual or because they don't like regional policy/no prize/nextmod/map pool/specific rule/admin himself or thousand other reasons? It's just curiosity.

I always have and always will wish the best to Tournament people you just misunderstood me.

Lol anyone, including you, can see what I'm talking about by reading 2 pages of your post history (although it by no means ends there).

I'm not going to argue with you about whether you have a pattern of this behavior any more than I'm going to argue that up is not down. I'm just going to continue to shit on your persistent, unhelpful, and unwelcome pessimism.

Edit: Wow. here is a post by you from two years ago where you make the same kind of shitpost, I call you out on it, and you claim to not have done it before. Weirdly familiar

Wow, 2 years ago I said something negative. I can't believe it. What have I done?!

You even go as far as equalize such negative comment with way more subtle one which was just a genuine question, a product of curiousity as I explained and with completely different context as such situation never happened before and was unique. In no way it was excessively pessimistic or anything that would warrant such reaction.

Your post was inapropriate and disproportiote to the magnitude of a situation no matter how you look at it. Your emotions got better of you.

I am not positivity incarnate. Noone is. Don't single me out. Specially when we talking this Community...don't discourage me.
