Yesterday a new duel tournament was founded by Abdiel
. To introduce him and the tournament, we bring you a short interview and further info about the tournament.
Many of our readers are surely wondering who you are. How long do you play QuakeWorld? Have you followed any of QWDL or Ownage tournaments?
Well, I am originally a NetQuake player, and I just started QuakeWorld like 3 monthes ago. I used to follow the Ownage and QWDL tournaments and watch demos, yes.
I used to host some tourneys in NetQuake, like 1v1 and 4v4.Why do you run this new tournament? Who should sign-up to your tournament?
Oh, I'm running this tourney since I found out that the other 1v1 tourneys like 0wnage and QWDL might not run this season.
The tournament is open to all nations.Any preferred player skill?
Oh, well they should be familiar with TB5- DM2, DM4, DM6, Aerowalk, and ZTNDM3. So tier 3 to tier 0 I'd say.How much time (days) will there be to play one round in Winners' and Losers' brackets?
There will be one week per round, starting on the September 30th. So they can play the matches until the end of the week for each round.Who is going to help you with the tournament? There are rumours that some of the people from the Ownage crew would like to run a duel tournament too. Is there some chance they could help you with this tournament?
Yes, sure. The same php system is being used - "phptourney". So they could probably help since they might be familiar with it.So at the moment you are the only official admin, is that correct?
Yes, but the match reporting and and so on are all automatic, so players can just login to submit results, and admins can handle disputes.Yes, I guess that's how they did it in every Ownage anyway. On the other hand there's always the job of finding out which player should have the right to get a walkover, maybe the worst and toughest job in admining a tourney. Do you think you'll have enough time for that?
Yeah. They will be able to email the admin on the admins list. If their scheduled opponent doesn't contact them by the deadline.
