Very fascinated in e-sports and the potential to make money. I’d almost even want to start my own e-sports team or invest in one if possible. Or even work somewhere in e-sports now before it gets even bigger. If any of y’all know more about it I’d love to hear it. Like what is untapped on this scene that hasn’t been done yet either.

Pre-downloading it on my xbox right now. Most hype I’ve been for a game since Bannerlord and we know how that turned out...

Hope this lives up to expectations

Since I graduated college and am currently unemployed, I now have a much larger interest in the stock market.

Threw $50 into my Robinhood account yesterday with my goal being to see how much I can grow it. At the end of the first day I’m up $5.92.

Anyone got any tips or stocks they’d suggest?

Events: NA / Melee Only Event
« on: December 27, 2018, 08:38:42 pm »
We need an event that focuses on melee so we can introduce casual regiments to the more skilled and in my opinion more fun aspect of the game. I think a melee-only conquest or capture the flag event would be perfect. We used to do this in the 63e after training to practice and also for fun. It is a good way for casual regiments to get a taste of what a groupfight would be like. This could also introduce more new players to servers like BoB Groupfighting or BBG Duel.

9/2 A blockbuster trade has taken place between Wolfpack and league leaders Infamous. The teams agreed to terms late Friday after the trading period began. The move sent DJ and Liquid to team Wolfpack, with Infamous landing Fireboy, Knightofstjohn, and Knocker. Fireboy is currently the leading candidate for MVP. This trade came at a steep price for Infamous as they let go of their best player (and good friend of their GM Oatmeal), DJ. "Business is business at the end of the day", the words from team Infamous general manager, Oatmeal.

9/4 Scrimmages between Atomic and Infamous last night have made it clear that WPC is definitely not a shut case. Atomic went on to win all 3 practice matches. Infamous was building chemistry with new teammates and testing new lineups. Be sure to expect a close finish to this WPC season.

9/5 Infamous took on a team scrambled together tonight consisting of Jaax, Bill, Yoshie, Pedro, Horse, and Rafael. The random team ended up winning 3 matches and tied in one. Infamous is still clearly working on chemistry. Surprise players include Pedro, Jaax, and Horse. They shined against tough opponents. Knocker also topfragged in the first match in a tie.

9/6 The landscape of WPC has changed today at the trade/transfer deadline.

- Masters is now carrying 11 players with the additions of Krastinov, Suns, Cwater, Cow, and Gul. They also released Maple. An investment from Jorge has allowed this move to happen financially. The prize pool is now $1057.14.
- Atomic has acquired fan favorite, CluelessWill
- Aftershock is in some turmoil with Nickcole wanting out of the team.
- Wolfpack is under new leadership as Moraine has taken charge and signed Lawbringer and Maple.
- Infamous made a bold move today. After a very impressive showing in scrimmages against Infamous, Pedro was signed by none other than the team he was doing so well against. Infamous also lost Suns. 
- Awakened is the only team that seems to have made no moves at the deadline. They are echoing the same mantra of togetherness and friendship that Wolfpack had done at the previous trade deadline.

It will be interesting to see how 11 players on one team blends. There are only 5 starting spots. Will there be any controversy over who starts? We will see. Is Maple going to have a resurgence? His lackluster performances have left fans, coaches, and players wanting more from the once shining star of NW. His new situation makes him a key player for a Wolfpack team looking to turn their luck around. Is that Nickcole or Le'Veon Bell? How long will he hold out?

9/7 "Ring the bell. The GOAT is back." These are the words of MATT himself. He has informed me today of his return to the game. MATT. Is. Back.

9/8 Wolfpack forfeits to Atomic. Wolfpack is still reeling and recovering after their trade with Infamous.

9/10 Last night was a match many were looking forward to. The "best friend" Awakened team vs. a new look Infamous team. It was a battle of duelists. It felt like watching Obi-Wan vs. Anakin as Godfreid and Bill went back and forth for what seemed like forever. Godfreid got the better of Bill, winning 2-1 and 2-1. These duel rounds helped swing the momentum into the groupfight, where Infamous seemed to simply just have more talent. Infamous took the win 16-12. It came pretty close down the stretch after some adjustments by Awakened, but they didn't have enough left in the tank to complete the comeback.

9/20 Well after a long 10 day break, a lot has happened.
-Theodin and Risk got into a small beef reminiscent of Fireboy and Theodin's war of words.
-Aftershock quit WPC after not bringing enough players to a match date scheduled by Jorge. This was an unfortunate circumstance, but was one people could see coming after previous turmoil from the Aftershock organization.
-The big news of the week is what happened to Atomic. After being unable to field enough players to have their match on Tuesday, Atomic was forced to forfeit. This was not a simple situation like it was for Aftershock.

Waste, the manager of team Atomic stated, "In the logs we schedule the match after I state that I will cancel the match if something doesn't work out. Jorge responds "Alright" making me think that he is acknowledging what I have said and is okay with it. Apparently I wasn't clear because Jorge claims that's not what he meant but doesn't say I can't cancel it. Numerous times other teams have canceled on Atomic with Jorges consent so I figured it was no big deal seeing as we still had 5 days until the deadline. Where I was wrong I guess is that a new rule was added saying that you cannot cancel a scheduled match unless both teams agree, though we were not alerted of this and it's not explicitly stated anywhere in the rules."

There are two clear sides on this issue. Jorge vs. everyone else. Waste clearly stated in his conversation with Jorge that, "I'll schedule it then cancel it if it doesn't work". Jorge's response? "Alright". Jorge then goes on to say, "The deadline match will be Sunday most likely if we can't set up our match this week". This is clear evidence that Jorge did in fact know what was going on. There was agreement on both sides that if the match needed to be rescheduled it would be done. The logs heavily support Waste's argument here.

Jorge has decided to be proactive about this. He has announced in an official statement that a committee will be selected that will address issues and rulings. This is a step in the right direction for the league.

With the NBA Draft coming up I figured I'd make a basketball thread. Made this so people could talk about who their favorite players are, trash talk other teams, talk about draft prospects, who you want your team to sign in free agency, etc. There's a lot of nerds on this forum but I know a few people like basketball here.

Competitive NA Events/Tournaments / UFC - NW
« on: June 13, 2018, 10:00:07 pm »

UFC NW will be an ongoing league for dueling. It will be run similarly to how the UFC or boxing operates as a sport. There will be ranked contenders for different divisions. Each division will have it's own champion.


Old Stuff
The divisions will be sorted by skill. All fights will be FT7's. The champions will have to defend their title 3 times in order to move up to the next division. The players at the bottom of a division or players that are on losing streaks may be demoted to a worse division to make room for other players.

Sign Ups: Just put your name and say you want in



It will probably be on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday every week or two. It will be split up into Main Card fights and Under Card fights. Probably 5 Main Card and 10 Under Card.

It'd be neat to have someone record and commentate it one duel at a time but if not it'd be faster to just do multiple duels at once being watched by refs.



Rules

All duels are ft7
If a fighter can't make it they will be replaced
If a fighter doesn't show up after saying they would, it's a forfeit
All forfeits are 7-0’s
Champions must defend their title 3 times before challenging another divisions champion
Throwing matches is not allowed and will result in punishment as seen fit
Players that are inactive will be removed
Ping classes will not always be taken into account, challenging other players may lead to a fight if I allow it
Trash Talking is allowed (and encouraged)
A Champion's belt may be taken away for inactivity
Playing under a fake name/another player's name will be a forfeit and may lead to punishment
You will have 4 days to complete your duel

Groupfighting Teams / 63e Logic - Groupfighting Team
« on: May 26, 2018, 04:18:59 am »
63 Logic is a groupfighting team that includes current and former 63e members. Whether you are banned from the regiment or not, 63e Logic is open to anyone that was once a part of the 63e. 63e Logic participates in groupfighting tournaments and in the future maybe even against other regiments.

Players that have played with 63e Logic in previous tournaments:
Fartknocker
DrunkenSpartan
Curtis
Purplish
DJ
Fireboy
Zappy
Steven
Mattbob
Aaron
Pizza
Krastinov
ghostrider
Horse

If you would like to join us in tournaments let me know on steam.

14
This list is based on my opinion on other players from the game. I tried to factor in each skill (example: chambering, footlancing, groupfighting, dueling, etc.). I believe that as the only living 63e member in the game that I have the most unbiased list out of anyone in the community. I also want this to be updated regularly so I will do my best to keep up with it. This is why I moved it to a separate thread. I can also see this list being used for tournaments if people want to make seeded tournaments or leagues with drafts. This can be used as a reference point for player skill levels. Feel free to suggest changes and give reason. If you are salty about where you are, do better, and you will be upgraded. If you want to help with the list steam message me. If you are not part of the list or know someone that plays and isn't part of the list, steam message me or leave a comment here so I can give you a rating.

These "Rising Stars" are players that I believe are constantly improving and can become much better players than they currently are. They consistently have improved their melee and have expanded their skills.

Competitive NA Events/Tournaments / Groupfighting League Idea
« on: April 25, 2018, 01:40:35 am »
There should be a groupfighting league with a draft. No regiments or pre-made teams. Signups for captains and the limit could be like 10. Then the rest are player signups and there will be a draft date when the captains make their picks. There can be a schedule for the season, with trades allowed to be made by each captain. The trades would have to be approved by the commish of the league of course, to avoid team stacking. Stats could be kept too after each match and we can have a leaderboard for kills, KD, deaths, etc. This can be a way to get the community flowing again and if people pitched in for a prize pool it'd give everyone a goal to reach. We could even tie in some rating system based on the leaderboards to satisfy everyone's ego. Team sizes would need to be decided based on how many players would join. Any new player that wants into the league can be brought in as a free agent but due to maximum roster spots, of lets say 6 players if its a 5v5 league, the team captain would have to cut someone off their team to sign the free agent. This would then make the cut player a free agent, and you can see how this goes. If there are too many free agents at one time, expansion teams can be added to the league. This league format makes it more like professional sports minus the salary. This can go a long way into making NW an actual e-sport (which probably won't ever happen but could you imagine if we actually made money playing this shit?). If we carry this over into Bannerlord NW we can become elite and all the scrubs will look up to us. This will probably never happen, but if it does, Fartknocker is the savior of NW and you will kiss my feet when I enter servers.

Haven't thought of a name yet but I have a couple examples:
Major League Groupfighting
International Groupfighting League

Have initial sign-ups with a start and end date
After initial sign-ups, players who sign-up will become free agents
After player sign-ups hold a Captain sign-up(after play sign-ups so we know how many Captains are needed)
5v5 with 1 or 2 subs(limit at 2 maybe)
Matches round robin style(every team plays each other once or twice)
Have trade periods every so often(every 3  weeks or so) If we want to keep seasons short have a designated day for trading
If there are 10 teams have the top 4 more to playoffs
Series could be incorporated into playoffs(Best of 3) then remaining 2 teams play another best of 3 series


Set up a Paypal for donations for prize pool
Collect Kills and Deaths stats throughout the season and give out Staff chosen awards(MVP and such) maybe money prize too
If the seasons are kept short and player number grows, new teams can be added
Also instead of Captains we could have Managers who don’t play but have to buy-in, Or have both and the Captains could just lead during the matches
Once Staff members are chosen have a vote to decide Commissioner, Re-vote every season
