...just wow....the content in this dev blog just blows my mind. Though on a second thought, it could be also this fat roll of Harroule.

That's great. Now can you clarify the rules please as they are unclear and all the commentators and Soundwave himself too have been contradicting each other during the group stages.

1/ at group stage when 2 teams have equal wins, which factors determine the winner (and what is the order of those factors)
2/ for the final 16 can we expect matches like 1A vs 2B and 2A vs 1B etc?


Many thanks

CCP Punkturis will be speaking about the UI

This will mark the first time more peeps will be logged on to a CCP stream rather than the CCP game.

One of the bigger problems I felt was the audio normalization, especially in the studio. Giving the four people each a headset like the casters in the booth could go a long way towards fixing this, but the whisperwhisperwhisper WUBWUBWUB got really annoying. Constantly hovering my finger over the volume button is really annoying.

The new UI is awesome, though. I love actually know what's going on!

1) Some of the information given on air was incorrect. The correct rules are available on the ATX website and are:
Quote:
Team rankings will be determined by Win/Loss/Draw and then by total points scored.


2) We have intentionally chosen not to disclose that. Sorry it's just going to have to be a surprise.

Thanks for the quick response :)

re: 1/ Is that TOTAL points so far or just points scored during the group stage only?

re: 2/ I understand ;)

Ok nice dev blog.

First of all I just want to say thankyou for this years AT its been one of the best ive seen so far and also CHEERS MATES for fixing that stream.

I am VERY intrested in composing a soundwave soundboard song.

I have one question, would you mind if I incorporate other EVE sounds into the music? Do I have your permission to sample eve for this?

The good old days of Unreal Tournament, fragging and sniping on Facing Worlds, listening to Foregone Destruction.......

Group stage only. The rules really could be a lot more clearly written we'll see about fixing that for next year.

hahah "SonicLover." Lovin' at the speed of sound.

But in what medium? Obviously not space, right? His name creates more questions than it answers.

Awesome. Last question. What happens in the event of a tie on points?
