Hello WGG members, I have created a starcraft 2 team called Two Chimps, after our favorite podcast of course. This works like the fan club thing that we had on nextgenwalkthroughs, but  with this you can enter tournaments, and play against people on the site. If you would like to join just put you name down andi will contact you.

@Awsome_King

Maybe when it's about 10€ or so ;)

I bought the CE for SC2 so I won't be paying the full prize for a second copy which will help me get what was promised to us before the release.

@bip

Alright.

Name: Solifluktion

Although I feel that if you put me in a KOTH there wouldn't be much competition. Perhaps commentating/streaming would be my deal! =P

Hey a quick anouncement, if you want to join the team you have to send me your email. I rather you message me on this site over that kind of information, just so random people dont spam you one your email. 

@ Archangel, I've been sandbagging my score so i can play in weaker tournaments,right now im one of the best in bronze and mainly protoss, but i should be in silver/ or maybe gold.

@Archangel

I never played 1on1 ranked.

I was gold in 4v4 and one of my 3v3 teams.

The other 3v3 team was silver afair.

You  don't have to buy the NA version to play on NA servers, you have to activate it from the Blizzard website.

 

Also any ranks in 3v3 or 4v4 means nothing.

Sangyerians you cant insult anyone until you join the team. Only team members can insult each other. Besides what rank are you

hey, guys I've become an admin for the z33k site, and i can now officially make real touraments. So i was wondering what should i make. 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, or anything crazy. I was hoping John or Dan would sponser the tournament but i know that, that most likely wont happen. So give me your ideas, and if you would like you could sponse, and promote something

Monobattling!

If you don't know what that is, it's where in a 3v3 or 4v4 you publicly announce one unit, and you can only make that one unit the entire game (barring workers, mules, observers, overseers and queens). Eg. If you are making only Marauders and are attacked by Void Rays, you can say "Well, I guess I'd better make more Marauders." This leads to all sorts of funky stuff.

This is not me joining the WGG Starcraft team because I'm terrible at Starcraft (for now, I'm doing a little practice). I'm just giving ideas, with a shout-out to Day[9]. Always make sure not to make the wrong transition into LYWFB.

Hmmm... I think the main idea is to put the idea of Wikigameguides out there. I mean, we could make wikigameguides into a new Teamliquid.net in terms of Starcraft strategy and news. Where as Team Liquid is more of a hardcore strategy and news, we should appeal to newer players in creating a platform in terms of new players. Lower level tournaments like Gold and under would be good. In addition, we should call the tournament WGG Tourney or something like that. 

 

P.S.

Someone should contact John or Dan to join, It would be cool to get the creators in.

Got a Response from Dan, here is what he said

I wouldn't feel comfortable commentating as I've never even played as Protoss or Zerg. I basically only know how to turtle and make Battle Cruisers :) I think it's cool what you're doing and if you want me to promote it I could definitely do that.

I'm still going to try to see if i can get them to join or cast something, but i think its pretty cool

Soz for late reply. I wasn't meaning to insult, it's just the ideal hammered into me by all my Grandmaster friends. I've silver in NA but I'm plat in SEA last season. Haven't played much during my first year of uni.

 

I'd love to  participate/commentate. I have experience streaming/very limited commentating experience. Might put that xsplit licence to use. 

Edit: we should run a WGG Sponsored/Supported tournament and put it on TL.

Depending on the day, I may be in for a tournament, even though I almost never play and am not very good. I do much more watching than playing. I'll have to figure out my NA account code, but if it's not when I'm either sleeping or on a holiday, then it seems like fun.

Why would you be nervous to invite Dan and John? They're not Gods. In fact, they're pretty gay.

But they don't play much real SC2 anyway.

We should have a WGG SC2 tournament, or king of the hill or something. In fact, I think I'll talk to John about that.

Ok, so I've contacted the people that i work with and they said that i had the green light to make it, so now this is where you come in. They are going to make the banner for the tournament. Tell me what you want in it. Also the title. Since im dedicating this to you guys i would like your opinion and Dan wont tell me what he wants, so you decide. Also some general rules.

WikiGameGuides Invitational Tournament: (Probably should include the logo if possible) 

In terms of the tournament, The question is do we attempt to advertise to everyone? Or do we appeal to the best of the best or the worst of the worst. I feel the latter is the best option. In addition, some people casting the games would be very cool. Finally, we could start a wiki on starcraft 2 strategy, with videos and have specific people moderate that. 

(P.S. Hate to be a bother, but could you do a tournament for gold and under? The only tournament for that is the Golden Age Tourney, which is only for Europe and I'm sure I'm not the only Gold player who feels this way)

Hm... i was thinking for letting every rank be able to join. i'll try to get casters, and i will see what i can do for the gold and under tourneys for NA. now for a even bigger question, should we have donations, and make the tournament branch off and give the prize to the person that wins the final tournament. If we do do this then i will need to find a way to get donations. If you guys know any one that would be willing to cast the tournament that would be great. Might contact ares for one of them

A prize pool would be cool. An advertisement on the podcast would help greatly in getting the community to rally. In addition, Dan and John should guest star on the cast.
