October 1st :: Tournament of Champions for All-Time High Seeds

Post by dustin » Mon Sep 21, 2015 9:47 pm

Calling the highest seeded players of all-time for a grand Lux rumble show-down!

You can see your lifetime highest seed on your user ranking page. It will say "Seeded: whatever (high of Nth)". It's the "high of" number that we will be using to determine the seeding for this tournament.

We'll be holding 2 different starting times, to allow for people over the world to participate easier.

Early division start time: Thursday October 1st: 11am Pacific / 2pm Eastern time / 7pm London / 8pm Berlin

Later division start time: Thursday October 1st: 6pm Pacific time / 9pm Eastern / 2am London / 3am Berlin (friday Oct 2nd in europe)

Join the "FEST" online host to participate. The FEST host will be open 15 minutes before the listed start time, and the tourney will start at the appointed starting time, with the highest seeded luxers that show up. Show up on time to compete!

Here's the shiny bling that will be awarded to the winners:

Maps used will be: Classic, Rome II, and some of the more popular MOTM / MOTWs.

Whichever name you enter as, the seed from that name will be used for ordering players. You cannot use your pjb172 seeding for your pjb name. Sorry, but it would create to much confusion and loopholes to allow that.

Yes, you're probably right, however he's not here anymore and probably won't be anytime in the future. Perhaps it's time to move on. Not every thread in this forum needs to become a flame war.

I have a similar issue. I cant access my imapickle acount. I am playing as imightbeapickle.

I think the problem is due to that 3 for one deal, which gave me a new access code or something.

OK pickle, I've updated your imapickle account, so you should be able to play as that name again now, using the account that you're now.

If I see the daily traffic in the games I doubt that we will have enough participants for a tournament. But hopefully I am wrong.

Still, you should show up. Sometimes ex-players show up for Luxtober.

After getting an "old folks" medal in the Luxtober 8 event showing a walking frame I was frustrated and bought my first Porsche 911

Perhaps I will buy a Parasol this time :)

The later division round will be starting at Thursday October 1st: 6pm Pacific time / 9pm Eastern / 2am London / 3am Berlin (friday Oct 2nd in europe).

The tournament room will be opening 15 minutes before that time. Show up on time if you want to compete.

The top players who are there on time will be pitted against each other for 3 games in a row, on the Classic map, then ROME II, then the new MOTM Hundred Years War HD (take a look at it beforehand for a bit of an advantage).
