How should that work? Huh

Eh. It is impossible to have a 6th map to choose from?

You don't choose maps in Best of 1 - you eliminate them, thus you need an uneven amount of maps. The map that survives will be played.

Well, add two then Tongue Or are we still desperate for 1v1 maps?

anyway I should have stayed out of this. I would never compete in a tourney like this anyway.

The small compact map-pool was nice, I think people would much rather have a smaller quality map-pool then in the past when we've had like 10 maps and some don't really fit, I know I prefer this. I actually nearly picked Xoylent as my second map choice as i'm actually ok on it, I just don't think it is a good map for playing comp duels when you can fall off and get pushed off a map very often.

I don't think the mappool needs a huge shakeup personally as this was one of the first tournament's I thought there was a really decent list, perfect size also, although if hub is to be used in the future, a re-make is really needed. Drain would be nice to be added into the mappool for whatever cup/tourney/league sprouts up next, and hopefully some mapper/s (Hello kuniu!) can make a new duel map since we haven't had that many new one's for sometime?

The mappool will most likely contain 5 maps again.

In mappool: stormkeep, darkzone, warfare_itemfix_itemfix, drain
Candidates for the remaining slot: downer, xoylent, aggressorx, red, hubaerowalk

I guess that can be decided with a poll, what do you think? That wouldn't be fixed forever btw, 1-2 maps could be vote-able for each cup.

I think there should be a big pool suitable 1v1 maps and the admin picks always 5 different maps for the cup.

I would add aerowalk. The idea to change 1-2 maps for every cup sounds good to me. Keep up the good work!

Could even have some fixed mappool with all the maps asyyy mentionend above (of course some maps could be replaced with newer maps) and then just 5 random maps for each cup.

For weekly cups that would be an option, but with 12 cups/year I rather want to plan things carefully. Especially regarding the small and sometimes quite picky playerbase and the PR effect. Beside of that, some maps are better than others and if quality is equal a xonotic map gets picked over a nexuiz map which gets picked over a quake map. Simply picking 5 out of 9 wouldn't fit that philosophy well.

I agree that 5 maps is better for something like this, gives players much more focus on what to practice. What would be good however, like fisume said, is maybe replace one map at each cup (with a poll to decide which map gets replaced/replaced with?), that would still keep focus but allow new maps in to try out.

Please make sure to record every demo and upload them to some safe place (I can provide an FTP account)

I'd love to participate but I have ~200ms latency to USA, not to mention EU, so watching demos is about all the fun I can get Wink

Check this: http://88.198.17.137/_files/Demos/Xonoti...rt%202012/
For the next cup we could ask all players to upload their demos, I might set up a little web frontend for that.

I was talking to nifrek/zeroql about this before, it'd be nice if we had a place where we could upload the demos from tourneys etc and Xonotic movies also maybe

<nifrek> even something like this could work fine: http://demos.quakeworld.nu/ <-
