Introducing the Bracket System for the 2011 European Invitational

Quote from: Qoennon

On 6—7 August, the best European StarCraft II and World of Warcraft players will compete in Warsaw, Poland at the 2011 European Invitational. But before talking about the prizes and the participants, let’s have a look at the bracket system.

In order to get to the finals and fight for fame and prizes, the competitors in both the StarCraft II and World of Warcraft arena tournaments will have to go through a double-elimination bracket.

The double-elimination bracket system is a little more complex than the single-elimination one, but the advantage is that it gives everyone a second chance. A player would need to lose two games to go out of the competition entirely, and could still win the tournament even if he loses his first game.

The double-elimination tournament is divided into two brackets: a Championship Bracket (upper bracket or winner’s bracket) and a Consolation Bracket (also known as the lower bracket or loser’s bracket). These two brackets can be seen as single-elimination brackets; however if a player loses a game in the Championship Bracket he will be moved to the Consolation Bracket instead of going out of the tournament.

Here is how it works:

  • Everyone goes into the Championship Bracket at first. At the end first round, the winners advance to the next stage of the Championship Bracket. The losers are moved to the Consolation Bracket.
  • The first losers will have to face each other, and the winners will advance to the next stage of the Consolation Bracket. The losers go out of the tournament.
  • The next stage of the Consolation Bracket is conducted between the winners of the first stage of the Consolation Bracket and the losers of the second stage of the Championship Bracket.
  • Every time a player or team advances in the Consolation Bracket, they will have to face the loser of the previous stage of the Championship Bracket.

Here is an example of a double-elimination tournament during the European Warcraft Invitational 2010:

In the forthcoming 2011 European Invitational, the StarCraft II players will have to get through a best-of-three match in order to advance to the next stage of the bracket, while the World of Warcraft teams will have to win a best-of-five match, so get ready for lots of action!

Promenjen Speed Masterwork Elementium Deathblade na 3.5

Blizzard je promenio brzinu Masterwork Elementium Deathblade sa 3.8 na 3.5. Slede i zvanične informacije povodom ove izmene:

Yes, obviously Blizzard needs to fix the tooltip on the pattern and the item if they're not going to just make it 3.80 like it ought to be. But, I think the real question ought to be:

Why isn't it 3.80 anyway?
At 3.80 speed, the weapon was over-performing relative to its cost and the ease with which it can be obtained.

[...] We wanted this weapon to be roughly on par with weapons from the previous tier, since it can be purchased from the Auction House. It wasn't intended to compete as much with current raid drops, as it felt weird that a strength-based DPS crafted weapon was more attractive than some of its counterparts.

Happy Birthday, StarCraft II! Community Spotlight – Videos and Compilations!

Quote from: Kapeselus

Welcome back for the second round of some of the most epic community highlights of the year. With some of our favorite tunes still deeply rooted in our minds, we direct our attention to videos and compilations from the awesome StarCraft II community.

We couldn't possibly forget those who entertain us with their words and/or video creations, including some of those fun videos we shared with our friends on Facebook and through other channels.

Tastosis, the casting Archon
Who doesn’t know Tastosis, the casting Archon? They entertain us and they teach us about StarCraft. That is, when Artosis is not busy dodging high fives. Not nice, Dan (but, maybe that one was just a hallucination).

Both Nick ‘Tasteless’ Plott and Dan ‘Artosis’ Stemkoski are the experienced nerds in our community, and they are like a font of knowledge for all those looking for some ‘nerderly’ advice or words of wisdom!

Tastosis Tips – Life Lessons for Nerds

Eye-opening, educational and hilarious.

Tasteless ladder points compilation

When you click that quick match button and you see Tasteless on the other side of the screen, you might want to surrender immediately. If you feel up for a daunting task, at least prepare yourself for Tasteless’s extreme ladder-point-thievery by watching this video. You have been warned!

Sean ‘Day[9]’ Plott aka ‘Day[J]’
There are many great StarCraft II community contributors. We can't even attempt to highlight them all and even if we tried, we would be afraid to miss someone who is as great as the others.

We are sure though that most of you will agree that if we could choose one who has had the biggest impact on all of us, it would be Sean “Day[9]” Plott. We feel that it wouldn’t be a real community spotlight without mentioning him and his passion, dedication, motivation, positive energy and amazing work he brings to the community. If you missed Blizzard’s interview with him, read it here.

Day[9] works relentlessly on numerous StarCraft II related projects, bringing you educational ‘daily’ videos and “making you a better gamer”, doing commentary on many epic eSport tournaments, organizing events and… being funny! Visit his site at—it’s a real treasure-trove!

Day[9] Daily #100 - My Life of StarCraft

To see what kind of person Sean is, what StarCraft means to him, and how he's developed into one of the most-loved StarCraft personalities, you absolutely HAVE to watch this video. A touching and truly unbelievable story of probably the most dedicated StarCraft player in the world.

Day[9] comic

War is hard for everyone. Especially those poor units in the Koprulu Sector, commanded by brave generals, who like to watch Dailies and use “Day[9] made me do it” for an excuse.

Day[9] Scream

If you have your speakers turned up, you might want to turn them down a bit. Sean is the man who is really full of energy.

Day[9] Running man

We weren't sure about this one. But we felt the need to highlight something that is a theme for Day[9]. He is _always_ a professional. Always.

Entertaining, in a different way

PonyCraft II

A different take on the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty trailer. Which Kerrigan do you like more?

The Dancing MULE

We had to include Markus Frank from Germany, the winner of our 2010 EU StarCraft II Video Contest. The creativity and overall production are really amazing and after so many months it is one of our favorite StarCraft II videos.

Which video did you like the most? Do you feel that you have learned something from them? Do you feel there is something else that should be up here? Share it with us and the other members of the community by leaving a comment—we always love us some more StarCraft content.

If you missed the previous community spotlight entry on music, check it out here. Be sure to come back on Monday, when the next part of the community spotlight about art and machinima will be posted!

Happy Birthday, StarCraft II! Community Spotlight – Music

27 July 2010, the date that our lives changed for good: the launch of StarCraft II.

Here we are, one year later. That's 12 months. Or 365 days. No matter what you want to call it, that’s a lot of time to let your creative nature go wild and produce something out of this world.
Many members of the StarCraft II community used it to humor and amaze us with their productions. We couldn’t possibly include everything the community has come up with, but we we’re happy to share some of our favorite creations with you!

The community really produces so much amazing content that we decided to split the Community Spotlight into three separate articles to make sure that we have enough space for everything!

First off—the music. Oh, didn’t we get a lot of these the past year! Original creations and parodies. Heart touching or funny and cheerful. Different types, but they all share one specific quality: they’re a ton of fun to listen to!

Without further ado, here is the collection of some of our favorites:

The opposite sides of what it feels like to be a StarCraft II gamer:
Temp0 - When I'm Grandmaster

A parody of K'Naan – Waving Flag. And what will you do when you become a Grandmaster?

AKAmazingness – Forever Bronze

From dreams of being a Grandmaster to the proud and bronze. “We never say never”—inspirational!

The heart touching:
HoughToonz – Pylo the Pylon

The story by R. Houghton of a brave pylon that was destined to die, despite the efforts from its commander. Some things just happen and leave us pondering why and this song tells the tale. And do you still remember Pylo the Pylon?

The Singing Nerd – A Viking’s Lament

A sad ballad about a Viking that was just too afraid to fly. “Can’t we agree to all stay on the ground?”

Nerd Alert - SCV Love Song

Who said that there is no love during war? Who said that an SCV cannot have feelings for another SCV? There are no rules when it comes to love, and this song is about just that!

The funny and/or happy songs:
Nerd Alert - Banelings

A parody of the Justin Bieber's “Baby”, this was the song that we can safely say has been the most popular over the last year in the community. “Banelings, banelings, banelings - ohh” has been on everyone’s lips to this day!

Nerd Alert – Void Rays

A parody of Rebecca Black's “Friday”. The most recent song which is in some way a follow-up to Banelings.

AKAmazingness – Four Gate

Another parody of Rebecca Black's “Friday”, this song gives a pretty good description of a very popular Protoss strategy. If you don’t know it... wait, do you really play StarCraft II? Who are you? In any case, check out the song, which is both fun and informative!

Josh “AskJoshy” Suth – Like A ‘Toss

A StarCraft parody of a popular song by The Lonely Island. A day from the life of... the Toss, as described by Mr. Probe.

Underline Entertainment – Fly like Aiur

A parody of the M.I.A. – Paper Planes song. Uplifting :)

So much fun. Have you found your favorite song in this collection? Which one do you like the most? Also, don't forget to come back for the next part of the series, which will feature some of our favorite videos and compilations!
