If someone is up for doing a quick, not too fancy logo (I would as usual do it myself but my Photoshop doesn't work for some reason and I can't find the CD to reinstall it), go ahead knock yourself out. Also I'm searching for a streamer to cover the cup. Thanks!

I don't know what's the point for having any kind of cup for someone completely new to duel. It's like hosting olympics for people who have just started doing sports.

Why comparing such a cup to the olympics? Fact is, duel is probably the easiest gametype to pick up as a new player (well except for FFA and Deathmatch). You don't have to find/motivate some friends to be competitive (like you would have to play in a TDM/CFT/Bomb/CA cup), and belive it or not but beginners also want to be competitive in a game that from the beginning was aimed for competition. The goal of duel is extremely simple, the maps are simple (mostly) and it's fun against a equally skilled opponent. It's only so frustrating to play duel in current cups because of our small community where if you play in one of the "normal" cups you get raped by people like GoReY, KerpaL, Puffdar, aso.

nice idea for a cup proof, i only see a problem with the signups: i think most of the newer players in warsow dont have a warsow account, but maybe with the help of the duel community we can direct their attention to this cup.

so everyone - tell the newdudes about this =]

Just saw the thread about this cup over at ESR.

Having these Participation Requirements:

"- not a longtime, active player from another Arena FPS switching to Warsow"

Is just plain suicidal for Warsow's growth.

It's plain suicidal to let people in who played Q3/CPM for several years. Like this real beginners will be stomped to death by them. If someone plays QL CA for lets say 1 or 2 years I won't have problems with letting him in, but if he has 2k+ duels in QL and started in 2005 with Q3 I definitely won't let him in.

:-D No really its a good idea but if you are noob you dont sign for cupZ. The kind of cups that f.e. CPM.NA organized was with people who were used to playing other gametypes just not duel.

You'll need to reach on publics and places like this to get new players to play though. I doubt many of them read the forums...

Organizing such kind of cup is gonna be tricky. Who knows, we could have some good surprises. Anyway, GLHF to all and thanks to WtfProof for your contribution to the community =)

My suggestion would be to turn it into a mixed 2vs2.
All play first a DM. From the results, you make nearly balanced teams, like rank 1 with last, rank 2 with last but one, etc.

well, i dont precisely know the point either, but i know theres something between olympics and not playing at all. its called fun ;)

am seeing another signup, eThaD.
with enough signups, you can extend the cup and seed two divisions.

Signed up.

Hopefully this will be a way for me to find the people that are on my level, so I know who I could practise with from time to time.
