TopReplays Bug Bash Tournament #2 (http://topreplays.com/Tournaments/Details/1)
Beta version of the tournament system is complete. I've also done some bug fixes against the replay upload from last tournament, This tournament will give me a chance to test the system by having many users upload their replays.

The replay system is by no means even close to being feature complete. There will be more tournaments as new versions roll out every 4-6 weeks.

Prize: $100 for first place.

Date: The tournament is Sunday, July 26 beginning at 12:15 p.m EST

Registration: Registrations will open on Thursday. I will be using a vBulletin mod to run and manage the tournament.

Qualification: Any registered member. Create your account here. (http://www.topreplays.com/User/Register)


Official rules:
1. You have until the start time to register for the tournament.

2. Check in begins at 10:15 AM EST You will have until 12:15 PM EST to check in for the tournament. Brackets will be up at shortly after. Matches start once the brackets are up. If you don't check in, you'll forfeit your spot.

3. Disconnects: If the game is less than (or at exactly) two minutes in, the game will be replayed on the same map. Otherwise, the loss goes to the disconnecting player unless both parties agree to replay.

4. To report your loss/win submit a replay. The tournament software will handle wins/losses

5. Games will be played on GGC, with a host that is agreed upon by both players.

6. Observers are not allowed unless both players agree.

7. Map choice for pre-quarter finals will be based on veto, with the higher seeder starting until one map remains.

8. All players must be in IRC channel #topreplays on quakenet. (May just switch over entirely to GGC)

9. Quarter finals onwards are BO5, all matches beforehand are BO3.

10. No cheats or hacks are allowed. Evidence of cheating will be grounds for disqualification.

11. Prize money will be distributed in the easiest manner. The prize money is $100 U.S. dollars.

Have to go to forums everytime to sign in ><.

You also changed my username a couple of months back and now when I'm not in forums it says "Welcome *insert old name*" and when I signed up for the Tournament just now it signed me up on my old name :(.

I caught the bug, it repros on the webhost but not on my local machine. I'll try to get this taken care of in the next couple of hours. I'll email you guys and also post on here.

What was your old account BidBadNemesis? Changing usernames, timezones, using custom avatars aren't really supported right now. I can do this manually for you though. Do you use your new account name to log onto the front page?

Alright now it should be fixed. You guys can try to recreate your account with the same username and email.

I really wasn't expecting bugs to be coming in this early. Good thing you guys reported the registration problem. It has existed for a while now.

For anyone wondering there are 54 people currently signed up. We went from about 32 when I went to bed this morning at 1:30 to 54 when I got to work this morning at 9:30. Gosugamers putting us on their front page sure helped.

It is up to you. It would be nice and very apprechiated, but you don't have to if you don't want to.

Considering no one post in that forum, no one would be able to play :D. Though i guess that would get more people to post so it doesn't look like I spam the forums. Hopefully some will stick around after this.

Hmmmm only 132 people signed up. Thats like 46 more people that were signed up when I went to bed 8 hours ago. Which means we added an extra 50% in one night. And your ad is still going at TL.net.

Yeah I know, its because I posted it in the forums. He said that he would put it up (which he did). The number attending went from 20 something to 40 something over night and then just kept rising. <3Chicas also got a banner on TL.net which probably accounts for the rise this past night.

Well after looking over google searches for "Topreplays Tournament" once it got posted on GosuGamers the tournament must have gained notority. It was then posted on various sites by other people including Garena site, and some clan sites. They all link back to the GosuGamer site, and the news post for it. Right now there are 162 people which is 100 more than we had 12 hours ago. My goal is to get 1025, because at 1025 I think the tournament page breaks and therefore <3Chicas will have to do some work. Right now all he has to do is sit on his ass in the channel and make sure nothing catestrophic happens.

Edit: BTW <3chicas and I originally only posted it on WCR and Battle.net so those links are void.

Everyone "signs in". Those who don't show up don't sign in. Then when sign ins are done the program puts all those who signed in into brackets. From there you see where you are and who you are playing. And then you say "hey [name] lets game".

<3Chicas
07-25-2009, 11:17 PM
So there will be a checkin button that you will need to click so that you can prove that you have showed up. The brackets will only be generated with people that have checked in. The checkin button will appear once it's the checkin time.

What if my username on TOpReplays is iEnergyHD when my GGC/Garena account is EnergyHD, should I create another ccount on TopReplays or doesn't it matter? Also, I'm not that sure how I join the tournament, do I just wait on GGC from 10.00 GMT-4 or? ;) Please answer these questions because I really would like to participate in this tournament.

Thanks in advance.

<3Chicas
07-26-2009, 06:37 AM
Right now it doesn't matter, the tournament automation part of the code broke and I will need to update the brackets manually. Your name can be whatever you want it to be. Just try to keep your GGC account similiar to your Topreplays account, so that other people can find you easily.

To join the tournament, create an account on topreplays if you havent already. Log in and then go here http://topreplays.com/Tournaments/Details/1 Click on sign up and wait until the checkin start occuring. At that time another button will appear saying to check in. Click and then you will checked in. Afterwards just wait until the brackets are generated to play.

All of a sudden Mr. Makes fun of my threads about this, wants to know when the next one is :D. I'll let <3Chicas do the dirty work this time. I showed him the ropes its time for me to sit back relax uninstall wc3 and watch my little boy be all grown up :D

To answer your question, probably next month (this may or may not be a blizzard month).

Soon? :P I'm shooting for the weekend before or after blizzcon. I got a backlog of bugs fixed and features I want incorporated before I do the next one.

So this doesn't seem like an empty post. These are the features I want to add before the next one.

The brackets need to be improved. They are currently a mess.
I need better way to report wins. Theoretically I should be able to drink beer and obs games the whole tourney.
The replay details page, well dont show much details.
