The problem is that it's going to be impossible to ask people to find teams of 5! I am going to see with ekcolnovkol if we can work out on a faster version of the map (reduced towers hp and slightly increased xp) and going to make tests to see if that doesn't last too much.
If people stay on a separate lane I bet you the opposite team will gather up and gank the poor only player so fast :)
I would like to enter this, but unfortunately I don't have an EU account, just US. Is there a way to get around this? Also, towers are weak enough as it is, due to the attack priority system. In the original DotA, it was very dangerous for a melee hero to attack a tower, as the tower would have a fair chance of targeting him next. In SotIS, that isn't a problem. Also, I suspect that HP goes up a lot more per level than it does in DotA.
I am playing some SotIS and I just seem to get owned either way I play :p
I guess the teams that will do good are the ones that picks heroes that accompany each other, so that not all goes one type, you need DPS, Tank and Support, so the teams that look a bit into the unit compositions should be able to pull ahead.
I would like to thank VJ for giving me the chance to cast this, we had tons of fun playing yesterday so I hope this will be as fun, its going to be so much easier with two people casting also, as it creates a conversation easier and sounds naturally better.
I wish all the teams that sign up good luck in the tournament!
I am sorry but due to the lack of people entering the tournament, it has been cancelled. For those who applied, I can give you one month of curse premium in consolation. Please PM me your curse (or sc2mapster) account!
Sorry :( Next time i will try to plan more time before it starts.
