Luxtoberfest (or lack thereof)

Post by dustin » Tue Nov 16, 2021 3:48 pm

Hey Luxers,
There have been a few questions about why no Luxtoberfest this year. Well the truth is that I don't have the energy to organize tournaments for Lux at this time. Sorry.

I welcome mods or community members to organize tournaments or events if they have the energy for it. I'll do what I can to support.

I've made this thread as a space for laments or plans forward.

Hope you're doing well out there.

Preemptive question, but we all know the answer:

Any events this year or no?

Like last year, i do not believe Dustin will organise a tournament but i do hope so. Maybe a kill the King tournament?

I myself hosted a few luxtober tournaments in 2020 and 2021 with no succes. Only a few mods showed up, so i'm not sure if organising anything this year will be successful.

Sad, but I assume Luxtoberfest is past. As much as I would wish back the good old times, we have to be realistic about was is left and what the status is nowerdows. Even if Dustin would host an Luxtoberfest I doubt there would be enough players around for a good successful tournament.
I am very sad about this as I would wish myself a great Luxtoberfest to take place.

But it's never to late to look forward. Maybe everybody who wants to play some tournaments could post here some constructive thoughts and show he his will to participate. Show presence and so improve the chance for some events.

If there would be really enough players willing to show up and play, we could arrange some events on our own (it does not have to be a Luxtoberfest, but maybe some single fun tournaments with fixed shedules). If enough players for FH games would sign up, I offer my help in organization and I am sure other mods (and maybe even Dustin) would also do.

Any thoughts are welcomed. So I encourage everbody not only to wish back the good old times, but also to show up and play in case there are any tournaments. Likely it won't be big events, they probably won't be as perfect as past events, but returning for some hours of good FH games is still fun IMHO. So don't only blame everything, lets take hold of the reins ourself!

LuxKillz, http://luxkillz.sitegrep.com/ automatically aggregates results by Host and Month.

If we could get some hosts up, named by map and have them up for a couple of days at a time, it could be a way to keep count. We don't have to use the Trueskill rating, we could use number of wins or something, or I could export the results..

As an example:

Luxtoberfest 22 - Imperium Romanum Expletus (Running October 1 - 3)
Luxtoberfest 22 - Classic (Running October 1 - 15)
Luxtoberfest 22 - Cube Wars (Running October 16 - 17)
Luxtoberfest 22 - Castles (Running October 22 - 23)
Luxtoberfest 22 - Bio (Running October 29 -30)

Living in Oz in GMT+10 it's hard to find players for games, but it would be great to get a few tourneys going...

Just an idea..

Hi H0b0,
thank you for the feedback. Good idea and valid point with the time zone.
Unfortunately I doubt without fixed times there would any good chance for a full house game.
The probability is much higher if you find a fixed time fitting well for everybody.

But I do not see much people really interested in playing a Luxtoberfest;-(
