    First Off.. I want to apologize for how the tournament started... was a glitch that i did not have last week running the WB tournament...and later after the tournament figured out the cause.. and shouldnt be a problem next time... frustrating for you the players and believe me even more so for me....

    so after sliding over to javtourny and using the tourny bot we managed to get the tourney completed...

    Due to popular vote we ran a 2vs2 tournament so the prizes were split between the 2 players on the teams:

    **Note to all winners if i have not gotten you your money find me in the zone and ill meet you in pub and send it to you!
    for me to donate we both have to be in pub!

    1st place... 1 Million Pub Bux: Fork/Molon
    2nd place.. 500k Pub Bux: Steadman/Plato
    3rd place.. 250k Pub Bux: They Tourney bot we couldnt have the a 3rd place match so after talking to all the semifinal losers we split 3rd with both teams
    Pee Pee Sock/Cherry Poppins and Brokenfist/ForgottenGhost

    Congrats to all for a great effort!

    There was no bug that prevented 1v1 tourny.. evidence for that is RaCka and I were still playing when we found out half the arena had left. So either you caved to the pressure to host 2v2 or decided to end it for some other reason. I asked why the 1v1 ended.. no response. Then I look here and there is no information about the supposed bug. Maybe you should expand on the exact nature of this bug to clear some of the confusion?

    as to why it went to 2vs2.. when we went to the tourny bot i do not have control of what is played.. it is an automated bot and at that point was just trying to get the tourny going with everyone screaming... less a caving more a patience ran out and frustration over things not working the way i had envisioned it...

    so if u were set on the 1vs1 i apologize for that too...can never make everyone happy in events...

    the "glitch"i am referring to is why we restarted twice at the start and came from my own ignorance regarding ship changes and is why some were affected at each start and others were not...

    i like fair play.. and randomness... doesnt matter how we do things we as staff are accused of being either biased or cheating or "fixed" lol....

    so what im gonna do is actuallly tell you what i did.. so u can maybe understand why it happened..(if u care lol)

    so the week before when i did the WB tourny... i did the exact same process.. with no issues.. so im thinking the 2 diff maps have different settings.. which is common when it comes to certain things as javtourny2 was setup as an automated spot to begin with way back....so maybe tighter restrictions...

    my process:
    first i shipset everyone into a jav
    to make complete random i like to put everyone on one team on same freq...
    then set it so it randoms all to freqs with 1 per team
    to make it really random i do 3 or 4 random shuffles (which is why you all saw yourselves appearing to be warped a few times

    the problem was.. depending on how many times u changed ship before.. or died just before start without killing anyone it was random at which point u got specced...until the game started and guys were screaming from being in spec...

    believe me my frustration level was high.... and so did the best we could to salvage the tournament and still have a lil fun...

    i wanted to run it manually without the tournament bot as we had had alot of fun the week before and the sytem i set up randomed your opponent each round... so it wasnt a fixed bracket each time

    i now know if i run in there again i can only just shipset once and random once and it would all be fine... the limit when i tested it after was 5 or 6 changes or randoms and we got specced when i tested it with another staff to see what the cause was....

    so again i apologize for the confusion and mixup.... hopefully it will be a little smoother on the next one

    Yeah I was more confused because I'm not a retard who changes ships on a map like that (entirely safe zone), chain spawns people, etc. and so I was still very much in and into the game. Then we're on a different arena but doing 2v2. So clearly you weren't frustrated enough to not do a jav tourny at all right.. so why all of a sudden 2v2. I feel like someone, or some group, complained and so it switched over to 2v2. There is no explanation for why the event suddenly switched over, either, unless the arena simply doesn't allow 1v1 jav tournys.

    Tournybot used to be able to forced into a gametype by smod+ I think. Atleast Pure_Luck used to do it for his pizza tourny's as far as I remember. Also seen some other staffers do it.

    And about those !random's, why? It doesnt really make sense.. Especially if you do them that much half the arena gets a d/c. Its not your first time hosting, but yet you make a very first time impression all the time. And tbh, I can kinda guess why. You prepare every arena with macro's etc, that you will get annoyed if people are against you and when something doesnt go the way it should be, you are 'confused'. Its like you are trying to make it an automatic host, but you spamming your macro's. There is barely any interaction and experience from 'bigger' games. Yes that matters, because you would know no one would duel to 10 in javelin. In warbird its not that painfull, cuz running away etc isnt as hard as in javelin. TWEL-J duels always go to 10, but take often like 30-40 mins, if not longer by some players..

    6 changes or dying without firing will get you d/c'd. So if you !setship, !teams 1, !random 4x its there.. And like you said yourself, if someone died just before you started the progress, he will go d/c'd even earlier. !setship is totally understandable, but !teams isnt already.. That doesnt add anything to the progress of making it random. The !random 4x maybe does some.. But with that d/c thing in mind, should you really do that?

    I can raise the limit on the number of shipchanges/deaths without firing before DC in any particular arena if it's needed. Sounds like it needs to happen.

    !force is indeed a (secret) command. Adding it to !help and allowing mod+ access.

    @dierightnow : the 2vs2 i had no say in the matter once we started the bot to get it going.. which another staff hit the start on it i had no control from that point on... it was all done automated and chosen by the players...

    @major... hindsite is 20/20 in my head i did not consider !teams and !random to be shipchanges.. i guess im as new as you always say i am... so in my head i did 1 shipchange.... and it didnt do it to everyone so the confusion was why it happened to some and not all...
    maybe instead of yelling and insulting all the time and asking what the problem is and how u could help instead of being such an ass all the time maybe things could have gone smoother...

    Don't worry about it. From what I saw there wasn't that much of a delay, and it was probably the first competitive event I've seen hosted in years. I don't even see a single other person hosting events.

    Pretty sure there was no one playing in the arena when I logged back in. And like you said before, some people got killed before it, so that didnt help either..
    And I have told u multiple times in game that ?go tourny has a !force mode. Is it my fault that you dont use it at all? Or didnt bother to ask qan about it? Cuz apparently it wasnt in the !help. And that you even wanna say that I dont help you is bullshit. I have helped you multiple times with how you should host an event. I remember helping you to get Pipe working. I remember talking to you about the warbird tourny. I already told you back then you could make it yourself much easier by using ?go tourny and the tournybot. That was because the no-spawn option and no need to worry about !random stuff or even warping ppl etc. But I guess you totally ignored it.

    Yes, I can be an ass, especially if you fuck up such easy things. Like I mentioned, your communication with the event players is bad. And common sense about some stuff is lacking a bit. Like I said, don't think anyone would want to do a jav duel to 10. The ship is too slow for that.

    Under pressure you tilted it seems. You aint that bad as a host and doing a great job with being the only one still hosting.
