Since some of you have shown interest in weekly Live games for the TOP 100 players, I'd like to start a discussion about it here.

Here is my proposal:

- One LIVE game will be played every week at the same time (for example every Sunday at 6PM UTC)

- joinable 15 minutes before start
- minimum rating of 2300
- 1 person per clan
- random start location
- balanced scenario
- rated game
- the winner of the previous week's game will have the privilege to decide the rest of the settings as well as the map
:)

Please let me know what you think about this idea and what time would suit you best (please convert it into the UTC time).

Let's have the first testing game this Sunday (Feb 12th) at 6pm UTC (7pm CET) with the default setup and the Ancient Europe Map.

Let's see if we can have a full house :)

Hi !

This idea of creating a weekly Top 100 game is great.

However, considering that a lot of top 100 players sometimes belongs to clans, maybe it would be nice to allow 2 clan members at least ? For example my clan has 6 top players, but only 1 can play.
Plus the fact that some players will not be aware from the game, I'm afraid that we will be a few to play.

My second suggestion :klugscheisser: is that a special award could be created for those weekly sunday game, visible in the player's profile. Like for the competitions trophies, a kind of special trophy, considering that those games are supposed to gather the best players.

Some players requested it to be only one per clan, and I personally agree with it because if we want it to be some kind of "prestigious" and motivational for people outside of top100, it should be a top quality game, and as fair as possible. However, if there is too few players and a demand for more ppl per clan, 2ppl per clan sounds also acceptable I suppose.

Anyway, for this week, it is 1 per clan as advertised, we might change it for the next week to 2ppl per clan if needed. Also we need to see how many people will actually join. For example, if there is 19 players and 2 of them are from the same clan, that sounds fine, but if there are only 7 and 2 of them are from the same clan, that's much less fair I guess.

The award would certainly help to propagate it :)

re-award: if you email me something, I can add it. Please send me something in higher resolution (e.g. 200x200 or 400x400) & I'll fix it up and add!

HOT NEWS: The following two adjustments have been made in TOP100:

1) There will be no clan members limit!
2) The game will be unrated!


This doesn't mean you can join and play as a clan though! TOP100 is a Lone Wolf game, so everybody joining is required to ignore their clan memberships. Refusing to do so might result in taking the award away from you. Since it's unrated, the only place that matters is the first! Only the winner will get an award and sponsored coins! So everybody play on your own and GLHF!

Lavi, let's just see how this works, we can always change it back, if it doesn't work well. Previous setup seemed to be the cause of too many conflicts. Since it's unrated, there is no point in playing as a clan because the final award is only for one player.

People from one clan will still work together to help one person... And they might just change for who we play to let him win depending on starting location.
