Can we change the date to that Saturday? I think that Friday is likely to be restrictive, especially since it's the day after Thanksgiving in NA (meaning a number of players are likely to be traveling or have other restrictions on their time.

 

Also a few issues with the rules:

 

Why are Null and Crackling autobanned? (not autobanned or considered all that strong in NA)

Why is backdooring not allowed? (not considered BM in NA)

If the game is 3v5, why can't the players play it out? The team of 3 is already at a significant disadvantage--why do they have to immediately forfeit?

Well it doesn't really make sense to have a "showcase EU vs NA match" be a 3v5, does it ? Might as well not play the game at all. I mean that seemed pretty obvious. To me. At least. Not necessarily everyone.

Makes sense, but shouldn't it then be on sunday rather than saturday? Aren't you guys more likely to be out carousing on the saturday following thanksgiving than having time constraints on sunday?

Short answer: EU organise = EU rules.

Long answer:

1) Certain heroes are found to be overpowered in EU, and are thus autobanned. I could ask you why marineking had to be autobanned in the last tournament, especially considering it had to be added 1 day before the tournament began, but starting an argument about that farce will only serve to make me annoyed. It is for the same reason that these two heroes are autobanned.

B) Backdooring is not allowed in EU.

d) Because it would be a waste of everyones time. Literally everyone speccing, playing, reffing or watching stream. All these people. Their time would be wasted. Might as well not play, if you're going to be playing 3v5. It is also extremely arrogant to think you even have the slightest of chances in such a situation, and would willingly waste aforementioned time on the off-chance that you can pull it off; in fact, it entirely defeats the purpose of a showmatch.

By that logic, the game should be replayed, since a forfeit isn't really a "showcase EU vs NA match." However, since players could game the system in that case, you would still want to have some penalty for players dropping. Hence, just play it out (unless the team with 3 decided to surrender--the point is that it seems overly restrictive to make it the default for the game to end at that point. We are playing across servers, so drops are not unheard of. How lame would it be to lose a match that had essentially been won just because two players drop near the end of the game (e.g. if the other team had been wiped and you were killing the artifact temple when the drops occured)?

Could be, but several of us aren't able to play on Sundays. Saturdays tend to be more reliable. Once we know who will be playing on the two teams, we can decide on a mutually agreeable time.

Okay, how about I organize it and we use NA rules? If it's a true showcase match, the rules should be agreed on by both servers. Just because it's being organized by EU doesn't mean it should automatically be EU rules. For the third item, see my comment above.

It would be very "lame" to lose a game because people drop - that's why people generally shouldn't be dropping. Funny how it works, isn't it? "Why should we be punishing just because we crash". Well maybe you shouldn't crash. I'm sure if you ask nicely, and the game isn't very old, the other team will be more than happy to oblige to a remake in order to accomodate bad Internet connections or whatever may be the case.

 

The purpose of a showmatch is to showcase a good game. A 3 against 5 is not a good game. It is a waste of time.

Of course that would be the smartest thing to do :)

Hey, I think both regions should agree on the rules too, but it didn't seem to be the case in the last tournament, given how essentially NA were consistently adding rules or playing with different rules on the NA server(NA vs NA team) (Backdooring allowed, mule lvl 1 tower abuse allowed, etc.) all the while calling African out for "only caring about EU" and being biased.

 

I think a middleground should be reached, but at the same time, I think it's very disrespectful that you would threaten to organise yourself, just in order for African not to have a basic foundation of rules rooted in his own server. You cannot be surprised by this, surely?
