  • Any EGers?

    Hey, any EGers reading this?

    Do you know the status on EG leagues running?

    If they're not going, maybe someone interested could step up, put together a proposal, run something. TW's done it quite a while and knowledgeable people could probably help some with planning logistics. Just need to get people interested. Then you need the guys with the keys to agree. But that's not so tough, if you have a good plan and they're not doing anything anyhow.

    Hey Qan!

    I've asked if there were any volunteers willing to do pretty much asking exactly what you are. A proposal or at least a thought out idea, and a promise to put in the effort and to show up. I would work with them as much as my abilities would allow and try to make it happen. The most recent ones had ideas and the starts of something but pulled out due to either it needing dev work or just losing interest. Any recent leagues played started with a player volunteering to help run a league and even with a few speedbumps, the leagues went decently well.

    It being an open opportunity like this has always been the case for years and if anyone says we aren't open to leagues, it's simply because we ask people to put in the effort, not just to give us an idea and walk away. The offer is still open to anyone interested and I'd love to see a league happen. I would personally mentor them to get it done and would love to hand over the reins.

    Maybe this is another place to yet again advertise that we are open to working with players if they're open to working with staff. All we ask is for basic respect and the above mentioned.

    Feel free to hit me up on Discord if you have any questions - and that goes to anyone reading this.

      Thanks for posting this, RaeRae!

      Was hoping to get a few EGers who are around TW these days to bite.

      The dev need can be an issue. But it's often an imaginary need ... more of a desire for a perfect ideal. When TW had a lull in dev, we just went extremely low-tech (mostly forums), and it worked out fine. Often people have pretty grand ideas and get caught up on making things amazing, original, legendary ... But you don't need anything groundbreaking -- if it's just an agreement to play a league (and something draft is a good way to rebuild), there's not really that much needed other than one or two people to step up.

      Anyone interested, please also feel free to "borrow"/steal any TW rules/materials you'd like. Maybe talk to a friend and see what they think about doing it together. As you can see, there's nothing standing in your way but time and a little bit of work. Then next season, hand it off to someone else. EG used to be the second most populated zone in the game. People want to play. Why not be the person to help bring it back together?

        I’ve run 2 successful leagues in EG and people have seemed to appreciate a league running. I would be willing to organize eg league but my conditions would probably limit it from happening. I would like to see EG merged with TW which I know would never happen.

        it was difficult running a league without a central forum and through discord alone.

        my proposal would be to have an EG section in TW forum. Would also like to see sub arenas that have eg settings where egbd and eg flagging could be played and the stats linked to the twd site.

        If EG was more integrated into TW I’m sure there would be a large amount of EG players willing to come back but until that day I believe EG will remain dormant.

          afghan It seems as though there's still active. Is there a reason this wouldn't work? (We could also link over to there if it would be useful.)

          Running games on TWD and linking games to the TWD site would require some work, as well as approval by EG staff.

          A key place to start would be simply trying to run a weekend league and seeing if you can gather some willing to play. TWers may also have some interest (as there are plenty of multi-zone players). That doesn't require much of anything special other than someone willing to put in work to organize. Steam announcements are also a possibility for gathering signups. If instead you place expectations at the virtually unreachable, you're guaranteeing failure.

              I would love to see a TW division for 4v4 and 5v5 EG baseduel.

                Yeah I would totally play some EG basing again, whether it were basing games or duels. I bet a lot of TW players would if a few people from EG put it together and advertised it.
