3rd TOC Wall Tournament

Postby Mystler » Sat 1. Nov 2014, 20:33

Congratulations to our winner:
Leonie
You will get a trophy soon.

The full results can be found here: Link

A big thank you to all participants and visitors. We had 11 players and many more visitors. Obviously, our advertisement worked and we were very happy to see such a number of people again.

Unfortunately, the wall didn't behave as we expected it to and we want to apologize for that. The control panels as well as the blocker screens in the observation room need major fixes. We learned that there is still work to do in order to make it smoother when so many explorers are in the age. Also, some people seemed to have connection/latency issues, but it looks like these were special cases. We're glad that we did not have to cancel the tournament though. We did our best to ensure the core game worked and we were able to play all of the games.

I hope you agree that, still, the we were able to see a fair and exciting tournament.

So, what will be our roadmap now? We'll start working on the Wall again and, when everything is ready, have another event. This time it will not be a tournament but a "Wall Party" which we will use to debug it and find out what needs further fixes. For that we will have random games and everyone who wants to play can do it. The priorities are fun and testing instead of competition, then. ;)

Again, thanks to everyone for your patience last evening. See you next time!

Original Announcement:
Spoiler:
The day of the contest is decided. On Saturday, November 22nd, the next Wall tournament will take place.
Once again, we are eager to see who will be able to beat the wall and stand up to their opponent.
If you believe that you can compete in the tournament, go to our event registration page and participate.

Important Information
Registration: http://the-open-cave.net/index.php/events/current-event

Meeting: Contest Hood, 20:30 CET (UTC+1), 12:30 KI

Rules
  • We will play in the Contest Hood Gahreesen that can be reached via the linking book on the pedestal behind the Nexus book.
  • We will prepare the game for you, so all you have to do is to set your blockers. After both players went through the tube, an automated countdown will start. Please wait in front of the ladder until countdown says "GO".
  • Depending on how many players sign up, we will either play Double Elimination (8 or less players) or Single Elimination (more than 8 players).
  • We play with 15 blockers.
  • Each game (except the final) has a 10 minute time limit. If no player can reach the top until the time expires, the game will be repeated with 5 less blockers.
  • If you completely block off the path to the top, you will be disqualified.
  • If you are using bugs (e.g. climbing outside the blocker area), you will be disqualified.

Please note:
  • The yellow seat has a strange collision and you might have to jump after standing up.

Gratulation an unseren Gewinner:
Leonie
Du wirst bald eine Trophäe erhalten.

Die Ergebnisse kann man hier ansehen: Link

Ein großes Dankeschön an alle Teilnehmer und Besucher. Wir hatten 11 Spieler und viele weitere Gäste. Offensichtlich hat sich unsere Werbung ausgezahlt und wir haben uns sehr gefreut wieder solch eine Anzahl an Leuten zu sehen.

Leider hat die Wall nicht so funktioniert, wie wir es erwarteten und dafür entschuldigen wir uns. Die Kontrollschirme sowie die Blockeranzeigen im Konferenzraum müssen überarbeitet werden. Wir haben gelernt, dass es noch einiger Arbeit bedarf um sicherzustellen, dass die Wall mit so vielen Forschern in der Welt flüssig läuft. Außerdem hatten wohl ein paar Leute Verbindungs-/Latenzprobleme, aber das scheinen Ausnahmen gewesen zu sein. Wir freuen uns trotzdem, dass wir das Turnier nicht abbrechen mussten. Wir gaben unser bestes um sicherzustellen, dass das Basisspiel funktioniert und wir waren in der Lage alle Spiele zu absolvieren.

Ich hoffe ihr seid einverstanden, dass wir trotzdem ein faires und spannendes Turnier sehen konnten.

Was steht also nun auf dem Plan? Wir werden wieder an der Wall arbeiten und, wenn alles bereit ist, ein neues Event veranstalten. Dieses Mal kein Turnier, sondern eine "Wall Party", die wir zum Debugging nutzen werden und um herauszufinden was weitere Fixes nötig hat. Dann werden wir zufällige Spiele spielen und jeder der mitmachen möchte kann das tun. Die Prioritäten sind dann Spaß und Testing statt Wettstreit. ;)

Noch einmal vielen Dank für eure Geduld letzten Abend. Bis zum nächsten Mal!

Ursprüngliche Ankündigung:
Spoiler:
Der Tag des Wettkampfes steht nun fest. Am Samstag, den 22. November, ist das nächste Wall-Tunier geplant.
Wir sind auch diesesmal gespannt, wer von euch die Wall bezwingen kann und seinem Kontrahenten die Stirn zeigen kann.
Wer meint, der Wall das Wasser reichen zu können, kann sich gerne in die Anmeldeliste eintragen und mit zu machen.

Regeln

  • Auf komplette Absperrung des Ziels folgt Disqualifizierung.
  • Auf Ausnutzung von Bugs (z.B. Klettern außerhalb des Blocker-Bereis) folgt ebenfalls Disqualifizierung.

Hinweis:
  • Der gelbe Sitzplatz hat eine merkwürdige Kollision und ihr müsst eventuell nach dem Aufstehen springen.

Filtik has done some work on the wall to facilitate the event. The update went live a few minutes ago. Feel free to test it and let's hope everything is ready for the tournament.

If everything goes well a live video stream will be available at http://www.twitch.tv/filtik.

The screens in the Gahreesen conference room might have a better display (and the better game FPS) though.

Wow! Great things and preparations are happening behind the scenes, how exciting, and we have 3 teams already (I hope janeerah managed to log in by now) ... :P

I wonder how this will all work out, with the facilitation I mean, and now Filtik has facilitated the proceedings even more as you've said ... So, we just have to sit down (I suppose the panel activation and the number of blockers as well as its fixing etc. will be done by you, the TOC team, or is being automated), set our blockers, get our maintainer suits and climb the Wall after the Go! ... Sounds all great and it will be interesting to experience and go through the new procedures, and of course with the new and additional live streaming service ... Awesome! ... See you all then on Saturday ... :D

I also wonder btw. how one could check this all out beforehand, I mean, do those new procedures work automated, means without your presence? ... 8-)

All we will do is organizing the matches and, when both players sit, trigger an admin cheat that prepares the game to 15 blockers. The rest will happen automatically, in all games, not just the tournament. You can set the blockers, confirm with the top button, go through the tubes and an automated countdown starts. Even the winner will be displayed automatically.

I've just reminded of this event on the MOUL forums here as there's quite much happening on the weekend, and I wanted to bring this already announced event to their attention again before it'll pass into oblivion, I hope that's ok ... :)

I’d love to participate, but besides having very little practice, I’m not sure I can be online in time :?

Anyway, I’ve tried to register, but I get the usual problem with the apostrophe :)

Korovev, please look through Mystler's updates, you won't need any practice at all ... Filtik has managed/programmed and enhanced the proceedings in a way that everything runs almost automatically, script or code-wise or so ... So, we just have to sit down, add our nasty blockers to the panel lol, take our maintainer suit and climb that awesome Wall ... On every step on your way you'll be guided if needed btw. ... :D

As for the apostrophe, I don't see an apostrophe in your name, and if it creates problems for you, why don't you just skip it ... 8-)
