I liked all your ideas you listed on Sunday, such as the spectator chat. If we're gonna use ProArena this time, I don't think people will have to spectate.fau wrote:If you've got any ideas for player or spectator features that may be useful for such event, pleas write me asap so I have time to implement them.
I know what you mean for sure. It makes your job easier cycling through the players rather than having to cycle through like 20 players. It can take a while and can be very annoying. I have had people spectate in previous tournaments, in fact that's one of the rules for this upcoming tournament:Boothand wrote:When I was streaming stuff, it was handy to have people in spectator, but there's an equally important reason - a tournament fight won't be exciting if no one is watching. Having 10-15 people pay attention to your fight makes it that many times more meaningful. This also carried over to the streams I did. Seeing people in the background doing a TFFA when they're done automatically carried over dullness over to the stream. Also 4 groups fighting at once makes the focus so spread out and hard to pay attention to.
Great that you're doing tournaments though, all too rare in JK2, but I think the few tournaments that do take place could improve a lot simply by directing people's attention to the action (whether they would rather jump/fight around or not)
However, I usually have at LEAST 3 matches going on at once. If we did a match one-by-one (like how I used to on ffa_bespin), the tournament would take forever. The way how I have it now is still about a 2 hour tournament. I can only imagine how much longer it would be if it was 1 game at a time...miso wrote:4. Stay in spectator until it is your turn to play. Those who are not playing must stay in spectator. There will be time for everyone to play before the tournament while people warm up.
I just wanted to say that it wasn't only for the streams, but also the culture of a tournament. But you guys know better if it's suited or not, however all tournaments I can remember in 1.02 was very attentive by the audience, and I would personally feel much more encouraged to fight and win a spectated fight, or to watch a fight that is being paid attention to.Miso wrote:If we're gonna use ProArena this time, I don't think people will have to spectate.
It does fuzzy name matching in follow and other commands.Daggolin wrote:Or the mod could be adjusted to support names instead of only client numbers to make it even easier. ;)
Of course :lol:Boothand wrote:But you were ready for the 4th of October, right Kameleon?
That's an overstatement.Miso wrote:Tournament is cancelled; nobody showed up.
My mistake...3 people showed up..fau wrote:That's an overstatement.Miso wrote:Tournament is cancelled; nobody showed up.
