Hello again dear Quakers! As you probably already know, The Hymn of Hope project started their first tournament and I'm bringing you a short interview with the leader of the project
We are also running a little poll, "How many players do you think will sign up?".
So Hymn of Hope season #1 started how do you feel?
I'm excited, I hope this tournament is the motivation needed for QuakeWorld-community to once again be active, and so far I've gotten lots of praises from people who loves the initiative.Yes. Right now HoH is the most discussed thing. Are you satisfied with the number of players who signed up the first day already?
I'm very pleased, its about one month until this tournament starts, and having roughly 25 signups first day, makes me happy. QW-players are known for being slow and signup last days, so I'm pretty sure that from 1 week from now and until the last days it will be pretty half dead, and they do it the last day or hour! But so far we've gotten some cool names.Yes I saw that there are players from all divisions. And I will ask more people about this. Tell us how many players will sign up in your opinion?
Since I'm pretty new to the tournament in a whole for qw, I first expected around 40 signups. But then I saw that Thunderdome managed to get around 120 players for their tournament. So, not to be too brave, I'm more then satisfied if I get around 80-100 players signed up, but I wouldn't mind breaking some kind of record in QuakeWorld, with most signed up players to a 1v1 tournament.Let's do a little poll about this. My tip is around 140 players! What about you guys? Post your numbers in the comments!Do you think money is the only motivation? If no, then why?
I would really want to say that it isn't because of money, but I'm afraid I think it is. If you compare other games like Counter-Strike 1.6, this game would've died long time ago if it wouldn't be thanks to the money. Since I want to attract other media, and getting new players into this game, and making it active once again, maybe revive some old legendary players, I cant find any other way then actually adding money into the project. I'm pretty sure many people will disagree, but I couldn't find any other way to deal with this issue. And I do think this also adds more excitement for the spectators and players, that they are aware there is money on the edge.All I say is "I Agree!". So thanks for your time! Do you want to do any shoutouts?
My shoutout goes to everyone in the qw-community, admins, players, newswriters and don't forget to signup for our tournament over at our website
and join our QuakeNet channel #HoH
