One thing I forgot: Res map videos were awesome. Really liked his introduction to the maps. However, I think they were missing showing the global picture of what the map looks like.
It was sometimes difficult to visualize what Res was saying without having a global view of the map.
Outstanding job Chrazini and Memb. Can't think of any problem with the organization of this tournament. Great, great job. In terms of possible improvements:
- Civ drafts bring interesting match ups, but can also completely decide a game, or even a series. I'd like to see a mix. As Viper...
nimanoe already mentioned most of what I wanted to say, so big +1.
Maps that favor aggressive play are great, but I'd like to see more diversity. Having at least 1 more typical map, where players can showcase their macro skills would be great. This would provide a wider range of strategies...
I really enjoyed this event! A big thank you to all the organizers!
This was already mentioned, but I'd like to reinforce the feedback for:
- The casting was great for me and people used to AoE, but didn't feel noob friendly. The quick start doesn't give room to explain civs, bonuses, etc, but...
- This is what I liked in this event:
- This is what made me tune in:
Top level gameplay. Good production quality.
Hidden civ picks -> watching prepared strategies.
Dave is super entertaining!
- This is what I think could be improved:
The swiss system + elimination format doesn't work, as...
A random bracket is obviously unfair, but can be ok if determined to be one of the quicks of the tournament.
A Hidden Cup is the perfect format to use a Swiss system. This would make it fair after a reasonable number of rounds (5+, depending on number of players).
However, a Swiss system...
I really like hidden picks over civ drafts, particularly in live tournaments with packed days like NAC. The civ draft took way too much time and killed the tournament flow for me.
I'd like to see some more constraints added though, e.g. ban civs for your opponent, or the tournament bans some...
Yes, the stream had 13k+ viewers. That's a fact. There's no way to determine why people are watching.
What point are you trying to make though? "you can anything that you'll still have 13k people?"
This discussion about the casters is a bit ridiculous.
I have closed the stream in other...
I don't see why you see the need to raise such discussion at this stage. I've tried to be respectful to Ornlu, not mentioning him by name, but giving general feedback about last year's NAC casters.
I watched the series despite being casted by him. Everybody wanted to watch Viper vs Lierrey and...
Could you point me to this? I didn't find it.
I'm basically unable to watch one of the selected casters. Makes me cringe most of the time, but hope it's only me. I'm sure it'll be a great event nevertheless.
