OWC Group Stage again NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO D:
posted
I just hope that this scoring system won't be as bad as mania's. Indeed, I honestly feel like it's the worst for tourneys, why?
Because you cant make advantages of players' consistency in terms of comboeing (not sure about the correct word to use there). Before, in team based tourneys there have been a lots of tight match that has been disputed throughout maps because people had combos while other had not. I honestly feel like consistency is what people want to see, they want amazing combos more than "amazing accuracy" which is not relevant on long songs.. holding combos is harder in tournament than holding accuracy IN MY OPINION.
Well, i think i am pretty confused in what i say, but if it appears to be close to mania's score system, then i highly disagree with your choices.

As we stated here: https://twitter.com/ppy/status/649599477586636800

It won't be like mania. In mania, combo does not matter at all. We do not plan that. Rather, we just want to take away the weightening of combo >> all. Combo will have a significant impact, but it won't be exponentially outgrowing the score, so even if your accuracy is shit, you will be like miles ahead of people who just missed once. However, combo will definitely matter, we just adjust the balance between how heavy Combo impacts the score and how you can compensate singular drops by accuracy instead.

We didn't need you for past 3 world cups. So, no. You can resume playing steam games now.
Bit of a harsh thing to say to the person who did the majority of the commentating of the last few years, is it not?

Still, looking forward to this year! Will we be getting any pro players commentating like last year? That would be good.

Thanks for the clarification Loctav, it seems interesting then.

I'd listen to Mr.Color every OWC
Please continue

Wtf is this thing about Color, he was actually the best commentator with at least some knowledge about the standard players for all past tournaments.

Btw, you should consider taking in some new commentators. People like Evrien, lolimonz, Doomsday and others were really great during the All-Star tournament that took place not long time ago and could bring some great quality into this tournament as well.

How will the map difficulty be scaled? (Non-)Linear?

Edit to clarify (examples):
4.8 5.0 5.2 5.4 5.6 or 4.5 4.7 5.0 5.4 5.9?

We're working on it, I can't really say anything for now.
But yes, like past OWCs, it will be linear.

You should wait until we actually release how the scoring works before you make assumptions about it.
Probably PP-oriented system.
While it could be kind of "fair", it would ruin the viewing experience.

Like, seriously, can I commentate too?

Like I said, ask ztrot

May I please ask for the logic behind captains being selected by the management team and not by the team itself? Not trying to start anything, I just don't particularly agree with that decision and I'd like to hear your line of reasoning behind it.

Even if it's a temporary pick, I'm assuming the reason you pick the captain is for the captain to choose a team, right?

I think it's a bit too late for that. Would have to wipe all scores on leaderboards or make an entirely new leaderboard. :o

I wouldn't mind that at all. It would give me an excuse to play some of my favorite maps again to solidify my fundamentals. Not to mention I'll capitalize on the player base rage quitting because I'm so anti-meta.
