Is this only the signup thread (if so, get me out of here ) or is this the discussion thread too? The opportunity to see the Nicov/Miguel pairing again is awesome, they have been absolutely stellar in the Arabia tourney...nice event. Also I think the event design of going from most standard -> most crazy map is quite a good one
@potao: nah, feedback is welcome here as well. Don't think we'll see more than 20 signups tbh ^^ Should add some rules regarding sling & civs (teams mustn't pick the same civ; e.g. 2x vikings on water) etc., too. We only came up with the idea Wed night, had a banner made & typed up a topic. Just really wanted to post last night to give more time for signups.
When it comes to the sling, I hope the rules won't follow the trend of two recent tournaments to ban slinging completely until the imperial age. Slinging is indeed overpowered, which is why tournaments should modify the sling, allowing us to gauge what the best possible balance is.
