You can late join ANY live game by typing EXACTLY the name of one of the player as it is shown in game (so with the clan tag, caps, etc.). Then you hit 'Enter' several times in a row and the game will show.1. Given what happened in last year's final, given how casters/co-casters cannot reliably join live games, why are the finals also not casted recs?
I guess robo would rather kill himself than trying to schedule for 32 people anonymously, including couple of brazilians, some always late people, and some non-english speaking players. But if you volunteer to take that job...QUALIFICATION SHOULD BE HIDDEN NAMES AS WELL
Yes, everyone can sign up.I know this is probably obvious, but can anyone technically sign up and then it will be the 32 highest ranked DE 1v1 ladder players on Feb 14th that actually take part in the qualifiers? except the invited 8 of course.
Well, worst case scenario they can always revert the game to whatever patch was live during NAC3.Super hyped for HC3, but...
So, I'm not sure if I missed it, but I only recall seeing bugged maps and DCs being directly referred to in the rules. In the wake of recent amusing yet anti-competitive bugs like units walking through walls or unusual damage dealing scorpions and mangonels, I was wondering what was going to happen with regards to major, sporadic gameplay bugs that are definitely not intended behavior (which is different from issues like bad pathing, which is predictable, ubiquitous, and part of the native behavior, for better or worse). Would they be considered part of the normal DE gameplay? Or considered an actual issue that would require rules/admin decisions?
A half dozen scouts running through high HP walls or a few siege shots from a single non-treb unit taking down a TC can definitely shift games in major ways, so I don't think it's entirely trivial. And although these bugs might be fixed in the next patch, they may also not, or worse, more bugs appear.
It seems hard to deal with fairly, so I don't envy the position of the admins.
There's players from China to Brazil so that shouldn't effect much. Also can it be hidden cup if you can make presumptions about the time the games are. Recorded games can be in any time player want them to be but when might the Grand final live be? That's the question.What patch will be the games played on?
