WORLDSTAR online (RESCHEDULED for September 1)

Post by Fuddle Duddle » Wed Jul 25, 2018 6:55 pm

A WORLDSTAR discord mirror will be TDed by (EDIT) me, Jakob Myers, on September 1. If that date doesn't work for enough people, we're certainly open to pushing it later. Here's a signup sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

Given that it's a better date for me, with 8 people signed up a 2-team mirror wouldn't be much fun at all, and it seems to work for more people, I've elected to reschedule this for September 1. I'm sorry to anyone this inconveniences.

This is indeed happening; the tournament will start at 1 PM Central Time and will likely run 3-4 hours. A discord server link will be forthcoming. If you haven't supplied your email on the signup sheet yet, please do so now. I'll close the field and assign teams at roughly 5 PM central tomorrow.

Clarification since it probably wasn't August 30 everywhere when I made the previous post: the field is being closed at 5PM on the 31st.

This happened and stats are up for it! Danzig with the Stars (Doug Simons, Jason Cheng, and Austin Foos) defeated Stay Together and Don't Be Racist (Matthew Lehmann, William Golden, Peter Schmidt, and Alex Schmidt) in a final. Thanks to everyone for playing! A British mirror is probably happening during the regular season, so this set isn't clear yet, but copies of it are available upon request. If you haven't yet, pay me via venmo at @myersjak.
