That is a busy weekend for me unfortunately...

Perhaps in the week before announce the tournament also with the ingame Battlefield News? (the news should have a tinkering light when there is new news btw)

Hi,

some questions about the tournament:

a) what map will be played? Will there be a map pool or such a thing depending on # of teams?
b) how will the locations on the maps be assigned to teams?
c) do we use the latest playtest or the release version?
d) a word about map settings (money/tech level/fow etc)?

Hey guys, quick update / quick apology.
i threw the thread together hastily without doing the things i should, and have only just had the chance to fix it.
sorry for being so slack. you can expect more from me from this point on =)

Can you please post a list of known casters and a link to their channel? This will aid me when it comes to writing the next newspost :)

Rider Rockon has no interest in OpenRA anymore, he was contacted but declined my invitation
i will spend this week hunting for casters, yes it seem five aces is the only one keen.

2 quality casters (fiveaces and soscared) maybe enough? Not sure if they can cover everything, but they do it so well that a 3rd one seems unnecessary and possibly 'dilutes' viewers to much?
