It was a great tourney, perhaps not with the most players but still great. Personally I had a lot of fun and I really like the map, I think its well balanced and allows the player with a disadvantage to move around the map in clever ways to avoid his opponent and slowly gain back control.

So a few questions:

The Tourney
How was the schedule? Good with 10min pauses between games?

What do you think KTK needs to do to attract more players?

Anything specific that went good during the tournament?

Anything in particular that went bad with the tournament?

The Map: Vdm3v3
How would you rate the map: Horrible, Bad, Decent, Good or Awesome?

Any technical problems such as fps drops?

Anything that you think was particularly good about the map?

Anything specific that you think was bad about the map?

What do you think about the Mega Health, how it was placed and the use of a one way "door"?

Would you like to see Vdm3v3 be used in a more serious kenya duel tournament?

Anything else you want to add about the map or the tournament?

- Didn't really get the 10 min breaks. But doesn't matter, the faster it goes, the better.

What do you think KTK needs to do to attract more players?

- Not much. Filter out the "bad" maps as soon as possible for upcoming tourneys

Anything specific that went good during the tournament?

- All games played within 1 1/2 hour or smth.

Anything in particular that went bad with the tournament?

- Not really. Smooth and fast


The Map: Vdm3v3
How would you rate the map: Horrible, Bad, Decent, Good or Awesome?

- Decent

Any technical problems such as fps drops?

- No

Anything that you think was particularly good about the map?

- Nice amount of ammo

Anything specific that you think was bad about the map?

- All the air stuff. One map too much with air shit already.

What do you think about the Mega Health, how it was placed and the use of a one way "door"?

- Not much thoughts about that. Good that it's close to YA. At least slightly closer than from RA.

Would you like to see Vdm3v3 be used in a more serious kenya duel tournament?

- No, not really. Other maps are better.

Anything else you want to add about the map or the tournament?'

- Nice initiative, think its a shame RedMasq isnt in the map pool though

just some general input on 'What do you think KTK needs to do to attract more players?'

lower the tournament duration. i think at the moment many players are put off by the time window '19-23 h'. i'm willing to bet that if you halve the time window you get twice the amount of players.

one possibility would be to streamline the group stage, to have players get knocked out of tourney quicker basically. if group stage is done within maybe 60 mins it would encourage a lot more players to give a new map a try and still allow the more dedicated players to take their time with the finals stage and show off their skills later in the tourney.

it was just great

i don't know

it went smooth and fast

Anything in particular that went bad with the tournament?
the rules on the site said overtime = sudden death, but when i overtimed vs nefuri it was 3 extra mins

The Map: Vdm3v3
How would you rate the map: Horrible, Bad, Decent, Good or Awesome?
good!

Any technical problems such as fps drops?
nope

Anything that you think was particularly good about the map?
i like it how u can decide 3 exits from only one teleporter ( the one at YA)

Anything specific that you think was bad about the map?
getting on top of that RA box is hard :p

What do you think about the Mega Health, how it was placed and the use of a one way "door"?
i think it was good, and the one way door is just great

Would you like to see Vdm3v3 be used in a more serious kenya duel tournament?
yes, although i must say i haven't tried many other kenya maps except for aero and ztndm3

Anything else you want to add about the map or the tournament?
loved the map, thank you zapp for counceling!

Q: How was the schedule? Good with 10min pauses between games?
A: 5 mins (used some KTKs back) felt "omg hurry hurry" all the time, 10 minutes are maybe a little bit too much, if you want to go into perfection, maybe 4x 5 mins and then 1x 15 mins breaks or smth like that

Q: What do you think KTK needs to do to attract more players?
A: Maybe some super-simple intro into the map, with two or three screenshots .. like "here is RA, it's difficult to reach it because..., nearby is LG, blah blah" "on the other side of the map there is..." "tricky area is this..." "the pace of the map is ... players typically try to ... this map is similar to dm4/whatever" .. kinda like swiNg's comment here, but put into the news item on qw.nu with a few screenshots

Q: How would you rate the map: Horrible, Bad, Decent, Good or Awesome?
A: good

Q: Any technical problems such as fps drops?
A: mh area was acting weird for one moment (not the doors, but dropping down there while hugging the wall, was doing similar thing like in dm4 ya when you want to fake the drop sound)

Q: Anything that you think was particularly good about the map?
A: lots of options what to do (especially when losing), while the design is quite sane

Q: Anything specific that you think was bad about the map?
A: sometimes movement felt a little crippled, but i blame not enough practice, hlt showed he can move there pretty well

Q: What do you think about the Mega Health, how it was placed and the use of a one way "door"?
A: it's ok, nice idea

Q: Would you like to see Vdm3v3 be used in a more serious kenya duel tournament?
A: definitely

Q: Anything else you want to add about the map or the tournament?
A: Thanks for organizing! Nice event.
