Possible Streamed forum tournament.

I am thinking of ideas to bring this area together in a fun event. What I have been thinking about is a streamed forum tournament with commentary, It would have to be an event on a day, and not a drawn out one like in the past and I could possibly provide some prize support depending on the event or just make a new thread, have it sticked with the information about the event and winners....sorta standard forum hall of fame.

That all being said what does everybody think?

Just want to spit ball before I make any decisions.

I would be very interested in seeing something like that, as long as the video is available on-demand after the fact.  I rarely have time to sit and watch entire webcasts in one sitting.  Probably would not be able toa participate either and for the same reasons, but it would be cool nonetheless.
Next thing you will tell me Browbeat is bad.
I'd be interested, but I don't own many mtgo cards, and time is always a major factor.

I think it's an awesome idea.  You didn't mention anything about coordination though, which is obviously the tough part.  I'm with Jman, no MTGO here, and outside that I'm not sure how it'd be practical.  And Cockatrice seems a tad tacky?

This interests me. Particularly since I'm always under fire.

I do not use MTGO... and I definitely wouldn't be able to build a collection in short order if we decided to use this medium on a short notice. I'm only willing to throw so much cash around.... software+a few hundred ticks.

I would also like to do it, but I'd need to schedule it for say... the evening of the 31st, the 1st, or the 2nd since the wife will be out of town and I can hunker down in front of the PC for a few hours uninterrupted.

I dont think alternative programs would be tacky, but the programs have a few inherit bumps and glitches that modo does not. You get what you pay for mostly

(at)MrEnglish22

Shakier servers mostly, yeah.  But as long as we didn't schedule near anyone's midnight server reset or whatever..  Anyway, couldn't dump the resources at MTGO either.

In the case of the alternate programs, you get a heck of a lot more than you pay for because you pay nothing..   But the manual transmission nature of the programs might require at least cursory familiarization from anyone not already comforatabe with them.

There's also a lot more issues with interfacing on Cockatrice that lead to user errors.
But on the upside, Cockatrice has better spectating options (afaik)

(at)MrEnglish22

I have MTGO and the beta for MTGO, that being said I never said MTGO, I realize alot of you do not have it. So keep your mind at ease about that. I am mostly seeing if we have enough interest that I could atleast get a small tournament going and get the ball rolling on something new that can bring the community a tad closer.

Hey, Cage, can I have my 4xWrath of God yet?

Jest and angst from past grievances aside, I'd be totally interested in adding more prizes to my tab.

I do not think I ever ran a tournament giving out a playset of anything. I am a bit to cheap unless I picked up an extra set.

Although yeah I fudged it on prizes on one of those tournaments and I still feel bad about it.

I can participate next weekend using any medium if given enough time to setup. Outside of next weekend I got nada.

I'm interested in seeing how this tournament goes down. Will each participant need their own Twitch account? If so, we may have the problem of ghosting. Anyways, I'm down for watching to see how this turns out. Seems like a good initiative.

The Tournament would happen on the same day and I would be casting it. So no ghosting will happen.

what are we using to do this?

Tournament would be played on cockatrice which has a spectator function. Please do not take this as an excuse to say it, but it needs to be known.

Also going to hammer out some details, but I need to get a solid tally of anyone who would be interested. So if you are interested please post in this thread saying you are intersted so I can get a tally.

I'm not doing anything with less than 8 people. I'd also like to firm up my weekend plans so we need to lock this in today or I'll excuse myself.

Not trying to be a ****, but I like to know what I'm doing a few days out.

Eat dog. You get free lunch/dinner, and you get to Magic! I'm also unsure if I'm going or not, as money/getting a ride/living quarters

I will sit your dog.

NOTE:  I may or may not use it for pavlovian experiments in my social psychology course. 



Don't see why you are doing Pavlovian experiments in a social psych course... I was also hoping that there was going to be a "literally sit on your dog" joke somewhere.

Its pretty easy. Just waive your fingers in their face while you have a 100 dollar bill inbetween them.

No day set, just trying to get general interest so Jman you might still be able to attend. Trying to figure out if this would have enough interest.

All you will need is the game program (Cockatraice in this case) and the one doing commentary will be the one streaming everything.
