I'm not even home right now and Windows seemingly committed suicide earlier today. How convenient... So I'm probably out unless a miracle happens.

So lots of shit has been happening. Not only massive amount of games has been noshows, we have gotten matches where people have gotten lagspikes (what the fuck id software), OBS, PC and QL has been crashing, TDM has been breaking up and multiple million other stuff. This has been pretty awful and as much I tried to finish this (since I worked for this quite a long time), I finally lost my nerves.

I am now announcing the cancellation of the tournament. Sorry for this, but can't just take it.

I'd like to give MASSIVE THANKS (was supposed to play a video in the ending ceremony) to:

EVERYONE WHO PLAYED THEIR GODDAMN MATCHES
Everyone who was involved with the Quake Live intro video (it is amazing and I try to upload it on youtube)
NEDM for photoshopping the amazing timetable+stats stuff for the break section. The way .psds worked was just superb and was radical as hell.
NEDM, 3dou, MaDBoY94 and Cookie for commentary.

nothing else to comment here, see ya folks.

I am so sorry. I thought that the map I forfeited was the last one we had to play. I didn't remember about BO5


Thanks for the games though. It was fun

Sorry i actually just found some time into write a message about this and it's probably my first and last (long) one in this thread.

First of all, thank you Mara for planing and executing this tournament, it's extremely tedious to plan ahead and have backup strats for all occassions but not for the ones that aren't predictable.
I've already had the feeling that you were busy the prior weeks before the initial stream launch and sounded excited to open the gates as fast as the countdown hits 00:00.
You've managed and handled everything very nicely and there's not a-wholy much to say, any than that you've laid a good foundation for a potentially good tournament.
But unfortunately we had so many issues that couldn't be calculated in.

The sudden decision to end this tournament early is reasonable,
it's extremely discouraging to keep on going if things just look like a mess and nothing turns out as planed.
So it's safe to say that only half of the games in the entire tournament did actually happened; the other half were all no-shows.
Not to push guilt to the ones that couldn't show up because of personal reasons but if you sign up for something and willingly say you would like to jump in, you either take responsibility and actually appear or just drop a message to the corresponding person hosting the event about your absence (or even people associated with them) which literally takes less than 2 minutes, so that the person who is in charge of that event can plan ahead of time.

It is a bummer to cancel your entry, but the tournament host can strike you out of the brackets before it can begin and it's much, much less stressful for eveyone involved than not appearing at all to one of your matches.

If you can't attend, leave a message to somebody about it so the host will know, it will make a huge difference in terms of overal attitude, planing and the future for similar events to happen.

It's not sportsmanship like to attend a tournament but not even showing attitude and spirit in competing or showing a bit respect for the effort one is putting into a project/event.

Overall, it saddened me that it has to be canceled before the competitors for the finals were announced, nonetheless everyone who has participated and was present at the tournament did a splendid job and played very well in which i have to say: "Thanks to all participants that gave their best".
I don't know if any of the viewers or players may have recorded their matches but some of the matches were really well played, even some of the one-sided matches had me feeling that a clutch might happen.

Eitherways, i had some fun commentating, especially since it was my first time doing commentary and hope it wasn't all too annoying with me that i try to overhype situations. So yeah, thanks for having me here Mara.
Hit me up if you need something again, i will see what i can do.

You competed and tried your best,
but i would personally be extremely pissed off too, if i would have to play a match that would decide your tournament games with bad latency so it's reasonable.
Also your ping at the beginning was spiking up to 150 but got worse at the second game of your duel match which was 250 by default and upped up to 310+
Of course your problem was visible at the TDM aswell (judging by your performance compared to other sets you had), so yeah.

I would've forfeited too to be frank.
Good games delivered eitherways, it was just unfortunate today.

If you're having fun playing the game or just having fun competing; as long as you enjoy it and contribute by either supporting with feedback or reactions, even be one of the competitors, the time that Mara and everyone involved with him had spent into making >this< possible had been all worth it.

Sorry that you feel this way, it's awesome that you kept trying though.

As a viewer, it was fun watching all the games. despite the difficulties you were having, so your effort wasn't in vain. The commentary wasn't boring, in fact it was really fun to listen to. I wasn't there for all the days, but the experience was still enjoyable. It was slow at times but I kept watching just because I thought it was interesting, and hope others felt the same.

Sorry for my match in particular though, my friend was having his own personal fps issues on an old computer of his, and we both aren't very good lol. Although I'm relieved that people believe it was better that we at least showed up instead of not showing up at all. We gave our best ever though we were outmatched.

It may not seem worth it due to the current situation, but if you do another tournament next year I don't think your efforts would be in vain. It's a fun event and I was hyped for it. Even if a lot of people don't watch, those who do enjoy it, or else they wouldn't be watching it :D

Same with NEDM, 3dou, and the other commentators aswell, you all put in effort to make this thing happen and make it enjoyable and I'd just like to say thanks. I watched a lot more than I expected.

I wish you best of luck Mara, sorry for all the difficulties, definitely not all your fault, there was no way of telling so much would go wrong.
