All Stars

Post by click click boom » Sat Oct 14, 2017 3:52 am

It’s been a while since we have had an all star event...

I was thinking best 2 out of 3 with maps hix and Ducati. Reason being these are by far our 2 most active maps that allow everyone to compete at the highest level. Not everyone has the time to play every map so we would risk losing players if we tried playing every map part of the rotation. If there is a tie breaker we would count capture differential and that team with the most captures would pick which the 3rd map will be for the tie breaker. The goal would be to make this as inclusive to as many people as possible without watering it down to much. A 10 v 10 or 15 v 15 would be nice. Matches would be 30 minutes long. 2 captains would be picked along with co captains to draft teams.

Let me know your input.

After careful consideration it appears there is no interest for an all stars game I’m assuming the huge talent disparity is to blame. Seems like no one reads the forums. Also It appears admins only get behind their own ideas but yet want the players to promote ideas... moving on..

This post has had 93 views so far....can't be from just 2 ppl :). Your FB post has 27 views so far....so they have been read. I find most are lazy to post and i say that kindly.

You have a clear idea of what you envision for this All Stars....organize it and the admins will make sure there are servers set up to run it and provide any counsel you might need.
This is how we got Chesval (zelgadis & another player came up with the concept and organized it; admins made sure there were servers set up to accommodate it) and iirc it's how Rikers came about as well.

Kierra,


I have created a signup to schedule which day works out for the most players. The link is https://doodle.com/poll/ru8fzxmguxm6r2ks

All players are encouraged to signup, I ask this is posted on the Lu site (news section).

Once the poll ends the council can pick the date that works for most. I will also ask the council to pick captains from the western and eastern hemisphere to assure we are being inclusive for captainship. Co captains would also be great.
I do not want to be part of the process, just trying to get the ball going here. I don’t want any controversy.

Give your input re: best date!

All Star teams will be inrespective of geographic location! This is not a Riker's or Chesval wannabe!

Well, was a great turnout to the AIS event.
Thank you to Alec and Button for serving as captains and to Monster and R3lax as their co-captains.
Thank you to all who joined in and played!

All in all, it went very well. Team A won both hix & ducati fms.
Both matches were 13 vs 13 with several obs!
Thank you to ccb for getting the ball rolling on this.
Thank you again, allejo for hosting.
