ILLIAC Online Restricted Open Mirror

Post by Iain.Carpenter » Tue Apr 30, 2019 2:59 am

Hello everyone,

Saturday, May 18th, Illinois will be hosting an online Discord mirror of ILLIAC. Teams are allowed to be open, but we reserve the right to break up "super teams" to prevent extremely talented players from dominating the field to the detriment of others. For more experienced players, Will Alston is running a true open mirror on May 4th.

We will be charging 25$ per person as an entry fee.

If you are interested in playing or moderating for this tournament, please sign up on this spreadsheet! Additionally please email me at wrencarpenter@gmail.com

If you have questions, feel free to message me on whatever platform is easiest for you.

It looks like you forgot to make the sign up sheet public. In related news, some UW players and I plan on playing. We are in need of another teammate though!

I think it's because I used my school email to make the spreadsheet which only opened it to Illinois accounts, it should be fixed now!

With the date of this mirror drawing near, I'd appreciate it if you guys could confirm that this tournament is, in fact, happening and provide some information on when/where we will be holding this. If you need help setting up a Discord server, I'd be willing to help out with that.

Echoing Harris, can we get a start time on this?

Hey everyone, sorry that this is so late, but the tournament is still going on. We will be starting at 9AM CDT tomorrow, and we'll be having a full round robin with a final. The discord link to the server is here! If you're a free agent, please feel free to use the general chat in the discord as a means to find teammates.

Are there real stats anywhere? It's very important to me that I flex the first buzzes I got because I remembered clues from Chicago Open four years ago.

If you don't want to be regarded as a "raving lunatic," it might be advisable to rave less, or at least to do so in a less loony manner.
