One thing though, I'd love to have seen start at like the Groups announced 1st of January or something. Loads of interested people are currently still doing that WinterCup thing or EuroCup. Would be nice if we could spread the events more instead of having 3 at once and then none at all, plus this would make a great start for the new year!:D
About the delay thing we will take everything in consideration. if it turns out we dont get enough signups we can still push the schedule back so people have more time to create teams or whatever. But if this thing goes massive now i see no reason in delaying it until after new years day. So time will tell :)
Avi if they don't show up :o
Faster admin.... what a troll!
Furthermore the other admins, as myself, will just help and advice Playa, who keeps his position as head admin. Matches can be played everyday of the week, multiple admins come in handy to monitor these.
stop being such a butthurt. Can't stand it your RTCW cup monopoly is coming to an end? Oh mighty ZeD, the one who brought the RTCW activity back up! No srsly, I'm grateful that you were the one who put effort in getting some life back to RTCW, but give the community credit aswell. Such as merl, bully, playa, warwitch, sabo, nail, dts, voice etc...
I invite anyone to take a look at our rules and then compare them to yours: http://binarybeast.com/xRtCW1303300#info
That said if you want to go butthurt over this I'll have you know I've already been punished enough by using your rules as a basis since I had to clean up a gazillion spelling errors.
It just shows how much effort you can put in to this cup. Try harder and make the from scratch, like I did.
I've really said all I had to, you're free to continue but I'm not wasting my time anymore.
There are a few changes that could be made here and there to make it read better. Not criticising, just a bit of a weirdo when it comes to this kind of thing haha.
It was only a few little things, I'll pm you them here later today bro.
PMing me here is fine too, thanks for your efforts.
Real annoying having to wait 6 days to be connected though, should have saved a bit of porn before I moved haha.
Mad cuz this cup will better.
People are also mad because I took the driverseat and started moving things.. Dunno why, maybe because their jealous.. Maybe...
I "like" people who start sliding on others people success.
1o1 basement to settle the score and afterwards kiss and makeup.

it's a thread about a cup which contains (stay with me here, try not to get lost) information about that cup
i want some infos :P
avi as backup - can play any class
Captains: Anyone Above
No matter what you feel about his decisions (I know I've not been happy about one or two in the past), he has put in lot more work than anyone else to get the scene where it is today. Even things such as helping Warwitch with his setup and making sure the shoutcasts run to schedule takes a surprising amount of effort.
This is no slight against the new admin team at all, as every single one of them are great guys that I speak to on a regular basis, but this cup would have been no way near as easy to set up as it has been without ZeD's past efforts. To shun him completely and just take over seems a little bit harsh.
Anyways enough of all the serious bizzle, I'm available for this cup with a shiny new internet connection (when they bother to send us the kit). If anyone wants a decent smg with lots of experience, just let me know. Or if you are looking for a team, pm crabje so that we can just start liquids again.
I have all the respect for the efforts he has made to keep rtcw in the spotlight but this doesn't mean he holds a monopoly position over hosting cups.
There is absolutely no chance for him getting to be admin in this cup, besides the comments he left here he's actively contacting us to insult us, despite everyone having helped him in one way or another in the past.
Even besides that I don't find him suitable as an admin at all, he's arrogant, condescending and frankly not that smart.
I know you mean well DtS mate, but you don't really know the full story.
Just seen a lot of hate towards ZeD recently and although some of it may be jusitifed, it's not nice to see such overwhelming negativity towards someone. Like him or not, he did reinvigorate the scene to an extent no one had managed for a while before.
I just think it's important that people remember his hard work. He may be insulting people at the moment, which is in a way understandable, but he has also had to take a lot of shit from people, myself included, over the past 12 months.
It was in no way my intention to try and stir anything up. As I said to fstr on Facebook, each and every admin in the new cup is a friend and I know the competition will be a big success.
It's true that hosting a cup and being the only admin at the same time is definitely a lot of work and you're bound to have people who'll disagree with the decisions you make.
All the respect in place for carrying such a burden.
But. the hate/shit he's receiving at the moment is caused by none other than himself by constantly picking fights.
Him having done a lot of work on the previous cups does not excuse him from receiving aforementioned shit, it's up to him to make it stop.
And thanks for your faith in the cup, we'll definitely try our best!
Before you judge me... I was the one who was put under shitstorm. Now reason why? I dont know, maybe people are stupid and jealous because I started to run the show in RtCW community and meanwhile people like you and many others didnt accept the fact that out of nowhere I start to run the community in a GOOD direction. You and your buddies had those funny clips, hate etc.... NOW BULLY if you would be smart person you would understand that I wont accept the shit. Who wants to have a shitstorm over them? Maybe you do... Theres always consquenses, you perhaps thought its funny to hate towards the guy who brought you activity while you lazyass were playing small mixes night after night. I have my bragging rights...Heres the thing, your cup wont be near as successful if i would have not made an effort, accept it and you know it so does the rest of the community. But karma is a bitch.
You try to be a smart person and have all the answers as you think.. but guess what...
Keep on sliding on other people success.
Over and out.
Edit: First wanna see who shows up from our old roster.... There will be a crossfire recruitment post if we are in need of players :-)
The advantage of this system is that everyone gets an equal shot at winning the prize, not just the players but also the viewers which are equally important to make this cup and exposure for rtcw a success.
You also mentioned deserved, I think trying to get the most predictions right will be a very tough job. You can vote randomly yes, but you could also increase your chances at a correct prediction by studying the teams so you get an idea on how they perform.
I've already explained my view on this.
We already have quite a substantial prize pool for the teams, the theoretical mvp has a good chance of being rewarded already since he'll most likely be in one of the top 3 teams.
All in all this prediction system is an attempt to get the community more involved.
That said, we're attempting to contact a potential sponsor who could possibly offer some smaller prizes for awards like the mvp. Emphasis on attempting as we have not heard anything yet.
