"To make this unique competition even more exciting and spicy, the ESL will organize a last chance qualifier open to everyone registered on the ESL website. Four more players will be chosen during the first opening day at Gamescom 2012 to represent themselves at the tournament"

Could you clarify this a bit? Is it one team that qualifies from the GamesCom lan qualifier, or 4 teams?

"Four more players will be chosen during the first opening day at Gamescom 2012 to represent themselves at the tournament "

You mean Four more teams ?
Is it random pick or a tournament live @ gamescon?
Whats the tournament mode, since its not specified and in the text is written players not teams. please clearify.
I guess its elite mode.@Signup it asks u for a team.
Good Morning,

#2 #8 : 4 Team qualified via 4 online qualifiers & 4 teams via a "last chance" tournament at Gamescom.

#3 #9 : No, in Elite Mod 3v3.

How to register for the last chance qualifier ?
#12 : Informations about the "last chance qualifier" coming as soon as possible.
Je ne vois plus ma question donc je la repose pour avoir confirmation
Sera-t-il possible de jouer avec un autre joueur lors des qualifers et de la lan (un joueur de notre équipe (SIMOON) sera absent lors des qualifers) ?

ok now im kinda lost, when i wanna signup for it it tells me Teams has too much members for this league ( 2vs2 teams must only have 2 players ), could anyone fix this ? As i see noone signed up yet so its probably for this same reason i guess

#15 soz i failed :D

Correct me if im wrong. Can we (Imaginary Gaming) play with a diffrent player for the qualifers and the lan since SIMOON is in holidays during the qualifers tournament and he'll be back for the lan ?

#16 : Use the following link to signup : http://www.esl.eu/eu/shootmania/open_gamescom_2012/q1/signup/

#18 Yes, but he needs to be in your team.

9 Maps? atleast limit it to 7.. or 5.

BO1, first to 5, maxrounds 6? Is this a joke or something? Atleast put first to 6 maxrounds 7 and let the tournament start sooner so you can make bo3 at some point and maybe bo5 at the final and also put maxrounds 11 at some point and unlimited in final. Just let the tournament start 2 hours earlier.

First to 5 is realy random because 1 guy can't attack if one team plays to 0 and it will favor the first defenders alot, even more than as of now.

Another thing: please higher the max amount of players for teams, many teams have several managers.

1 more thing, will we have to buy the gamescom ticket if we make it in one of the 4 qualifiers / go to the last chance qualifier?

Calculation of 2 systems wrote:
ro128/ro64/ro32/ro16 = bo1, first to 6, maxrounds 7
= 13 rounds max = 13 min, let's calculate with 30 min for each match = 2:00 hours
ro8 / ro4 = bo3, first to 6, marounds 11
= 21 rounds max = 21 min, let's calculate with 1:20 for each match = 2:40 hours
ro2 = bo5, first to 6, maxrounds unlimited, let's calculate wiith 2:00 hours

= 6:40 hours

If you start at 19:00 the final will start at 23:40, if you put bo3 in ro16 it will start at 0:30.

Your current system, bo1 first-to-5 maxrounds 6 looks like that:
ro128/ro64/ro32/ro16/ro8/ro4/ro2 = 11 rounds max, calcualated with 30 min each = 3,5 hours, final will start at 0:00.

"team_pointslimit: 5
team_maxpoints: 6"

It should be 6 and 7. That's definitely the least you could change.
=) yea
And please please, do not change the current maps.. or let poppychamp release the new maps now :x Playing Qualifiers on a different (9 maps!!) mappool than the main tournament sucks, especialy if you don't publish the maps very soon.
