Title: NA Community Rep Post - April-June Term
Post by: Windflower on January 01, 2019, 06:08:27 am
END OF TERM/START OF TERM UPDATE


Well well well, the people have chosen wisely once again.

First off, I want to start by thanking you all for voting me in to my FOURTH community representative term. I appreciate all who voted in the election. This will likely be my last term serving as CR. I have been preoccupied with doing college in the morning as well as working 3-11 shifts right after that so it has not left me with so much free time this last week. I want to apologize as it was not a great time to be absent. This is not an indicator of the term though as I do plan to be actually even more active than I was in the last term.


Old News
ONGOING #1 - RECENT HACKING ALLEGATION
Recently there have been allegations of hacking against Matt. There was a community meeting held by Jolly (pretty much my vice-CR), and the conclusion was that the evidence was not conclusive enough to bring down the hammer. Matt being an extremely skilled player and being considered the most well rounded player in NA at the moment by many, so when the allegations were brought forth it turned into a "shit-show". People posting about this on multiple threads and people gossiping etc etc. It has been pretty much settled. Matt I believe has also started to step away from the game from what it seems to me.

ONGOING #2 - THE END OF THE 4V4
Really this has been my central focus of my last term in making sure this would be ran smoothly and would be something that would be enjoyed by the vast majority of the community. Something people could get excited about in 2019. I have received help from many members of the community and this league being ran as successful as it has would not be possible without their contributions. It was my goal from the start to make this less of a dictatorship and more of a community based league where all input is valued and appreciated. And it has been. Since this is one of the first properly ran draft leagues there were problems that were encountered but it was mainly just a culmination of a bunch of small issues that we sorted out throughout the season. This is to be expected imo of the first iteration of the league and if/when we decide to do this league again (whether it be 4v4 or another kind), these problems will be dealt with and improved upon in order to make "a perfect league". I appreciate everyone's patience, participation, and concerns with the league.

The last match week of the league is ending on the 9th. The post-season championship will be followed the week after so stay tuned!

ONGOING #3 - WHAT I WANT TO ACCOMPLISH IN MY FOLLOWING TERM
To keep it to the point, I'll quote my application in spoilers as well as brief the application.

Are you aware that the position of Community Representative is one of trust and confidence, and do you understand you can be punished for breaking that trust?: Yes
Why should you become CR?:

       I felt good about my last term, a real sense of some accomplishment within the scene and I only want to do more and more and more for the benefit of the community. I feel like I have more to do especially since the 4v4 league has occupied much of my recent time. I think the community was overall satisfied with my recent term which is good and I plan to inject the community with as much life as I can. I also feel like I have the most experience with this position and I have only found ways to better the role and make use of it. Though the casual side of the community may have been a bit neglected by me for this recent term hopefully I can put my efforts towards that more strongly this next term as I won't be so preoccupied with running the 4v4 league.

My competency as an administrator and moderator alone lead me to believe I am the best candidate for this role. Also a critique for myself might be that I'm not as active as I should be due to school and working closing shifts. School is pretty coming to a close and I know that I'm going to be online a lot more to deal with the player base and whatever may be going on. The community has been a lot more involved with these recent CR terms which is really good for the role itself and has brought the role to something more community based rather than the sole-CR based.

While the casual community may have been neglected a little they seem to putting along without too much distress. It's also important to remember that the competitive community makes up probably like 90-95% of FSE (which is where the CR's strengths lie.). Without the competitive community there basically is no community which would render the CR role a whole lot more useless. It is kind of important to elect a fitting person into the role of CR because it can actually impact the community more than you think. Other than that, I'm planning to keep doing what I'm doing.

CR FAQ
What is a Community Representative (CR) and how do you vote for one?

For information on this topic please see the following thread (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=29158.0), as this has already been covered. This topic will run you through the election process, the basics of what a Community representative is and how you can get involved and vote!

In short, the Community Representative is the Community Board Moderator and member of the Moderation team, elected by forum members, to represent the interest of the forum community.




What are the core responsibilities of a Community Representative?

A Community Representative has a few different roles, and while each nominated representative may see the role differently, the main idea of a community representative is for these three areas;

1. To be a gateway between the moderation team and the community (the Community Representative will have access to the Global Administration Board).

1a. To suggest improvements based on the consensus of the community or to advise on the moderators plans/suggestions.

2. To handle community/thread disputes within FSE.

3. To do what we can do keep the FSE Community both happy and running for as long as possible.

Since each CR will have a different perspective on the role, bear in mind that outside of these three aspects, the Community Representative is largely up to the platform of the individual.




What can a Community Representative Help you with?

Here are some things that I've found that Community Representatives are commonly asked and can help with;

1. A Community Representative can edit or remove posts on threads within the Off Topic and Community boards.

2. A Community Representative can put a suggestion forward to the moderation team on the Global Administration board.

3. A Community Representative should be the first contact for any disputes or arguments on the forum. If someone is causing issues for your regiment or event on the forums then the Community Representative should be your first port of call. I'd suggest contacting them via Steam or PM's.

4. A Community Representative, depending on their skills, may be able to help you with other areas of your thread such as helping you with editing your post if you've made a mistake in your BB Code. This will depend on the current Community Representative's skill but if they can't help with this or say getting a signature for your regiment they will be able to point you in the direction of someone who can.

5. A Community Representative can help you with any general forum queries. If you are new and have any questions then please don't hesitate to ask them.

6. A Community Representative can move a thread for you if it's in the wrong area in the Community or Off Topic boards.





What can't a Community Representative Help you with?

1. A Community Representative can't change your username on the forums. If you post on this thread (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=39733.0), someone can do it for you.

2. A Community Representative can't warn, ban, or mute forum users; however, they can put suggestions forward to the moderators on the Global Administration's watch list.

3. A Community Representative can't delete a thread; neither can a moderator, but they can lock the thread for you.

4. A Community Representative can't delete, edit, or remove posts outside of the Off Topic or Community boards.

Knowing what you can do as a CR is important and it is also important for the community to know to understand what community reps can do here on the forums. NA holds high standards for what community reps should do/be doing but you must also understand outside of the forums we are the same as you. If you have not been following the election here are a few posts in which I've outlined what I want from my term. Also if you want anything in particular from my term or want to see certain things done please by all means that what this thread is for.




Here I will try to make a weekly update on the NA community's and my own ongoing's.

JAN-MARCH TERM
DEC 31 - JAN 7
Ongoing #1 (Changes to community representative/current state):

Some of you have campaigned for changes to the current CR role. It is a community position so we want to have as much feedback and constructive criticism as we can to help improve the effectiveness of CR. If you have anything to say on this matter please leave a post here so that it can be further discussed as NA seems to be the more dissatisfied with the position.
Here's a quick quote from the election thread from Shadow:
Shadow's take on the current state of CR
(https://i.gyazo.com/ba8d824881cdec7803a3ff179f69e703.png)
[close]
I feel like the Community Representative is good for what is what made to do in it's current state but I also feel there's room for improvement so if you have anything you'd like to say on that matter please do post here.

Ongoing #2 (Melee only event): Link here (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=40418.0)
Still in its infancy stages but seems to be the start of something if we can develop interest. I wanted to talk to tired about his suggestion to gather interest as well. I feel like if done right  it could really be a good thing for both
casual and competitive sides of the community. I will definitely keep updates on this and try to work toward it.

Ongoing #3 (Holiday lull):

WPC's finals are on hold until community member Waste returns apparently,  thing is taking forever to finish
NWGL is resuming this week
- After these 2 events we're going to need more to keep the community from flat out dying, its good to consider what we can do after these are finished.
[close]
JAN 7 - JAN 14
Ongoing #1 (Melee only event)
The first melee only event is taking place with the help of BBG tired. The Leib-Grenadiers were invited to participate. Hoping this goes well and we can do it again with the 42nd.(:

Ongoing #2 (Fast Paced 4v4 Draft League)
After some polls it was narrowed down for this to be the next "league" style event which will be hosted probably very soon. Further discussion may be needed to sort out some intricacies of the league but the rest of the organization should be fairly straightforward in terms of how the league will work.

Ongoing #3 (CR position)
Doesn't seem like anybody has suggestions about having the position itself altered which is okay if the community is content with CR.
[close]
JAN 14 - 21
JAN 14 - 21
Ongoing#1 (Melee only event)
The first melee event took place and it was somewhat a success but with the wrinkles ironed out I think this can get established as an actual event with casual regiments but we'll do it with pubs for now I believe and with the LG/42nd's and some mercs help for the next one at least. Date TBD, I think Friday is what we're aiming for again.

Ongoing#2 (4v4 Draft League Fast Paced w/ Proper rules/trade system)
Still fleshing out how the league will be ran (with the help of the community), its rules, who will be helping running, etc. and once those are decided I will begin working on the thread for it and my aim for it is to be hosted in early-mid February.

Ongoing#3 (Amateur NA Duel Tournament(s)
May as well make an official announcement on this planned series of tournaments to be hosted for new/inexperienced players, it will be mainly organized by Jolly with my and others help. I believe these tournaments will commence at the end of the month.

Ongoing #4 (Casual community)
It seems as though some people want a little more done in the casual side of the community which I am all about, I am thinking of what I can do to help with this and I am open to suggestions and am currently investigating myself.

Quote
as for events and what not,
-Melee only event will still be happening
-Amateur Duel Tournament is happening very soon
-4v4 League is being hosted after the Amateur Duel Tournament
The 93rd and 73rd have been recently created giving a little extra life/diversity in NA which is a nice change. I'm pretty sure the competitive scene will pick up quite a bit more than it has stagnated for in the last couple months. I've been fairly busy this past week so I'm sorry for the lack of anything on this thread.

JAN 28 - FEB 4
JAN 28 - FEB 4
Ongoing #1 - 4v4 Draft League ($150 prize pool)
So after polling the community it has been decided this will be the next league. The thread has been posted and there have been around 30 signups already. The next step for me is to make the teams and then work out the dates and also the draft itself.

Ongoing#2 - North American Amateur Duel Tournament
The duel tournament went down the other day with the amateur players and we had a decent turnup with German_Gunner winning it. The next one will take place likely around late Feb-early March.

Ongoing#3 - Possible resurgence of line only linebattles (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=40542.0), hosted by Midnight
I'm not sure how much the community is into this but it could be nice for "competitive regiments" who want to attend more linebattles again instead of waiting to schedule groupfights all the time.
Ongoing#4 - Talks of another season of NWL?
[close]
FEB 4 - 11
FEB 4 - 11
Ongoing#1 - 4v4 Draft League
We have signed up 45 players, the captains have been announced, and the draft is set to take place this Sunday. This is what I'm primarily working on right now and have directed most of my attention to. As well as some side community issues.

Ongoing #2 The apparent end of WPC
WPC has been booked for this Sunday apparently to finally end the league. This kinda marks the shift in major tournaments as the 4v4 league is just getting started.

Ongoing#3 Melee only event
I don't have any information regarding this, I haven't received word from tired or anyone really if they wanted to put one together but now is kind of inconvenient at the same time I suppose.

MAR 1 - 8
MAR 1 - 8

Ongoing #1 - Rise of Public Groupfighting and fall of BoB Groupfighting
Recently since BoB pretty much dissolved it saw the rise in popularity of Public Groupfighting which brings back NA_Groupfighting style administration with little tweaks and pretty cool scripts involving assists, no kd resetting, etc. Dallas Groupfighting seems to be kind of an absent placeholder but it's kind of hard to tell what's going on with that server. For now there is a central groupfighting server which is a good thing and a decent change for the community as it does also have better administration that BoB was somewhat lacking.

Ongoing #2 - NWDL
Currently NWDL is in its third week and things are progressing relatively smoothly with only a few bumps in the road with some minor tweaks here and there. The waiver wire will be at the end of this week after all the matches are completed and the captains will pick from the free agency pool.

Ongoing #3 - More (unique) competitive events
Brought to you by Jolly & Vetro with Fireboy's idea is the randomized 2v2 tournament  (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=41065.0)in which you are paired up with a random partner from the sign ups to compete. Since this is a 2v2 there is a possibility to have a lot of teams so make sure you guys sign up and get your friends to sign up to make this a real tournament.

Brought to you by Dan the Chef is another one of his innovative tournaments, this time being a 5v5 capture the flag "test" tournament which has potential to be fun given there's enough interest/sign ups for it. You can sign up for the tournament here  (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=41034.0)but you'll need a team to sign up with.

There are also a couple of other competitive events in the works but I'm not privy to that information.(;

Ongoing #4 - EU Tournament thing
Also this past week the NA team of the Napoleon's Cup EU tournament was eliminated due to bad sportsmanship long story short. It's not really worth going into and I'm sure most of you know the situation as it's the same shit every year. Pretty shitty to hear but it happens I guess and really you just have to move on because it is their tournaments in the end. There has been talk of hosting a "fair" world cup with multiple servers and all that but that would have to be well orchestrated and ran professionally in order to succeed I believe.

APRIL 1 - 8
END OF TERM/START OF TERM UPDATE


Well well well, the people have chosen wisely once again.

First off, I want to start by thanking you all for voting me in to my FOURTH community representative term. I appreciate all who voted in the election. This will likely be my last term serving as CR. I have been preoccupied with doing college in the morning as well as working 3-11 shifts right after that so it has not left me with so much free time this last week. I want to apologize as it was not a great time to be absent. This is not an indicator of the term though as I do plan to be actually even more active than I was in the last term.


ONGOING #1 - RECENT HACKING ALLEGATION
Recently there have been allegations of hacking against Matt. There was a community meeting held by Jolly (pretty much my vice-CR), and the conclusion was that the evidence was not conclusive enough to bring down the hammer. Matt being an extremely skilled player and being considered the most well rounded player in NA at the moment by many, so when the allegations were brought forth it turned into a "shit-show". People posting about this on multiple threads and people gossiping etc etc. It has been pretty much settled. Matt I believe has also started to step away from the game from what it seems to me.

ONGOING #2 - THE END OF THE 4V4
Really this has been my central focus of my last term in making sure this would be ran smoothly and would be something that would be enjoyed by the vast majority of the community.

APRIL 15 - 22
April 15 - 22

Ongoing #1 Playoffs
We're finally in the closing times of the playoffs in the 4v4 league going on now as there are just 2 matches left to be played. The winner will go home with a total $150 pool and the loser will go home with nothing. Thanks! Until next season.

Ongoing #2 NANWL
This is going to be the next BIG event in the NW competitive scene so many resources will be used to make sure the 9th instalment of NANWL will run smoothly and professionally and that it also lives up to previous versions. The league sign-ups close May 4th and the league starts on May 11th so it will be a week or two after the 4v4 league ending that we will loop into a different league. The summer in particular is looking to see a little boost as is expected but the events and regiments popping up will increase even further I expect. For this season we've even seen the return of season 1 champions the 1aSvea. They're led by Wardop again but also seemed to be backed by quite a few of the former 93rd players to give it that kinda new gen. interest, good luck to them!

Ongoing #3 More events
After the 4v4 and during NWL I plan to host and contribute to a decent amount of competitive events. I'm also trying to see right now if a cavalry league is viable, for one to be worth while I would have to say around 5 regiments/detachments should sign up. I would also probably try to bring back the 1stMI (Mounted Infantry) under a different name (2ndMI) so basically just 4. It's a small community and I'm not that much into the cavalry scene so I'd probably have to get the help of a couple vets that know their way around the community more closely.

Ongoing #4 One groupfighting server
We have returned to the one groupfighting server days again which is fine as long as the administration is capable, not corrupt, and caters to the community it should do just fine and provide a centralized server for people. Go with the flow.(:

Ongoing #5 Australians
I fully support the Australians/OC, I did allow them to post their event threads in the NA event board until they were recently just granted their own boards for NW and BCoF which is cool for them, it should contribute to the activity of FSE as a whole and they are a decently sized community.
[close]
MAY
MAY UPDATE

First I'd like to apologize for the lack of any updates for the month of May. To conclude the ending of this month I will be posting this update. This has been a busy month for me personally as well as an uneventful month for NW besides the starting of NWL and a few other things, but here's what's in the works.

Ongoing#1 - Tiered Duel Tournament & Unarmed Tournament
With May seeming like a pretty uneventful month and the only major thing that's running being NWL since the draft league ended, it is time for the summer action to kick off. In the works right now is a Tiered Duel Tournament similar to the Amateur Duel Tournament hosted previously but with tiers for both pros AND joes and prizes for both. It is Jolly & I's plan to make this as large as we possibly can to bring back the recent lull of individual/non-regimental competitive events whilst also bringing in newer players to the scene. The thread will be posted within the next 2 days so stay tuned for that.

Following the Tiered Duel Tournament is something I came up with and had a map made specially for it courtesy of Zebaad. What this will be is an unarmed tournament (punches & kicks) aimed to involve everyone from all ranges of the community in one mega tournament to answer the question of who is the ultimate master of the fist (& foot). The plan to make this work on a large scale is to amplify the damage of punches and kicking through the usage of scripts to realistic damage levels to make the matches A. faster B. realistic and C. possible in a tournament setting. There will also be several arenas on the map designed after cage-match style MMA arenas. Here's a sneak peek.
(https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fbastionmaps.com%2Fstyle%2Fimages%2Fart%2Fshop%2Fboxing%2Fboxingb.png&hash=0ba1c577db4537028867d3f30f6f3ef0)

Ongoing #2 - Leagues & Summer 2019
Not much to say on this front as NANWL has now been under way and is currently in its second week. This league can take up to 3 months so it may feel slow while the other events are going on but the administration and Risk are dealing with issues well and are maintaining the stability in what may be the last season. This isn't necessarily the largest but not the smallest NANWL either so there is much to look forward to for season 9.

As for NA's cavalry league I've kinda put that on the backburner right now while everything else goes on, if anyone has any suggestions for this league or NA cavalry in general feel free. Right now my focus is on the competitive scene in NA as it makes up the majority of the forum users as I've said before which is the most important thing. With this also comes with introducing the casual players into the competitive scene and in term FSE as a whole which is partly the reason for these upcoming events. This upcoming summer will hopefully be a prosperous last push for the community. As 2019 continues into Fall it seems the state of the community seems a little foggy so we might as well make the most of it while we can.

Here's some extra info from Dan on his thoughts regarding the CR

Dan's thoughts
Can we change the name from community representative to like community moderator or mediator or something like that. I feel like that would better discriptor of the role at the current moment. If the CR were to continue as a role I think it would work better with an actual community manager and with the proper resources that would come with said community manager. Like when I think representative I'm thinking great blots where we're trying to decide an issue or where a statement has to be made or like for a company supported event where a community member can take discussion points right to the source and get an answer.

Basically change the name yo

So it sounds like what you're saying is that you'd actually want to have a Community Manager, managing the Community Representatives?

I've also updated the poll, btw - so we can retake your feedback and get a more updated input :)
In my dreamscape I would like the CR role to be split into a community moderator and a community representive. The CM would continue in a similar role and CR would assist a community manager in both managing community-driven initiatives and to tell the community manager what the community favors. The community manager can then either direct or give resources towards an event or initiative.

So basically community manager is the sugar daddy, community rep gets the hoes and the community moderator is the police.

My Response
This is maybe something worth considering in the future, but will note your feedback so it can be discussed. Thanks for your input, Dan.

I'll say this is something similar to what was previously done, I believe.
[close]

Also wanted to note that there's a poll here (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=29163.0) to note your response regarding the current state of the CR.

Thank you. :)

Even in EU, there are fewer and fewer regiments playing actively competitive (inf wise) yet again, as long as tournament titles are sort of contested between at least 3-4 regiments, and a few other can provide close matchup against these regiments, it makes things interesting and worth it. Even for last RGL which is a melee based contest (and therefore doesn't give much room to small/medium regiments to exist compared to bigger structures), it was still very indecisive until the clashes between 15thYR / 91st / K-KA and these matches were a hell of a close affair.

Even the EU cavalry competitive community is more active than NA, we have at least 6-7 regiments all capable to beat each other in a good day even if some are obviously more of a favourite.

Having the whole competitive NA scene based on two regiments constantly clashing each other isn't really anything interesting. I understand that there is no 'magic', you can't force people to play an 8yo game and with the NA community always having to be smaller than the EU, it's not much of a surprise to end up with such situation.

I don't really know the NA community all the well either, but isn't there a possibility for a third or fourth competitive group to be revived (even if it would only be for the duration of a league) and something Windflower could help with? I know atm there is the 15e but considering how the two bigs have difficulties scheduling matches with them, I am not sure what's up with it.



Also good luck with your term Windflower!

Problem is no one has the drive or following really to do that.

15e had a decent lineup until they got bored of never having matches because certain people didn't like losing or whatever so now a lot of their good players left for LG and 42nd

Double post but also, even with most of the competitive players in NA are in one of these regiments and we still barely manage 20v20. Our player base is just too small from people not being exposed to comp or getting raped and giving up on getting better.

Of course I could also just try to refuse people from joining or split the reg but, yea no
Title: Re: NA Community Rep Post - Jan-March Term
Post by: Tardet on January 02, 2019, 05:54:30 am
I hear you, but surely the contrary is true as well. LG/42nd have been around literally forever with the same people leading / same core. You probably have players who can't stand either of the people in these, but because they want to play NW competitive, they don't have really the choice and end up picking the one they 'dislike' the least.

If a third option was offered to them with competent leadership, don't you think they would be tempted to give it a try? (even if as I said, its only for the duration of one tournament/league). Or is there no way for a third decent option to rise-up unless one of the two regiments quoted above disband/goes inactive?

This is the main stumbling block to having a third group - the waste/Russian and Asian/Godfried combo are the only leadership groups that can bring players back. The problems with size of the competitive community has always been about lack of leaders who people are loyal too and will come back for. I mean, the list of retired leaders is significant - Tico, the 9y guys, Alexander, Cheeseypants, Karth, etc. Each of those guys could bring 5-10 people back and could change the dynamics of the scene, but since all don’t want to play, people who would otherwise be core players in dead regiments end up having the options be 42nd and LG.

It’s been hard since jolly has been away due to family reasons for the holiday season. 15e will resume competitive stuff in January, though we certainly have lost some of our comp lineup to the 42nd and LG

Once I get back to school and can be active I'm starting up the comp side again after the christmas break.  This time I will be more open to doing 1v1 n gfs with other regiments no matter how much we lose.  Sadly other members in my reg aren't keen on losing cause of "moral" but also there's the struggle of converting casuals to comp.  But with more tournys and comp trainings I hope to change that, we do have a lot of members so hopefully we can get it rolling.

Losing members to other regiments doesn't make a difference.  We have a large players base of casuals that we can turn to comp players.  there's a lot of interest and we have to continue to promote playing comp to our casuals.(sorry for the double post)

Ongoing #3 (Holiday lull):

WPC's finals are on hold until community member Waste returns apparently,  thing is taking forever to finish
NWGL is resuming this week
- After these 2 events we're going to need more to keep the community from flat out dying, its good to consider what we can do after these are finished.

Just throwing this here, but considering the state of the current NA community, what would be the chance of a NAGFL to happen (and have a decent amount of participants?) An RGL seems out of questions with the 45nd/LG having too much of a melee stacks, and it's not like there are many formats which can be considered either.

A group fighting league ask a bit of commitment timewise because it's meant to be an event taking place on a few months (depending on the number of teams) but it's not regiment based, meaning you could have several LG/42nd/Mixed teams if you make it 5v5/6v6, on top of the teams from other regiments.

Again, I am throwing some ideas, I don't know the NA community all that well so don't take offence if my suggestions are a bit delusional or not based on much knowledge.

It would be cool to have a 5v5 league again with a High & Low Tier Groups so people fight other teams on their level instead of Top teams destroying low teams. I know Jorge 5v5 league was aids and took long because of him but it would be cool to have another GF league.

Somebody could try running a Swiss tournament. Eliminates the need for separate tiers, which eliminates the need to sandbag in friendly matches. Seasons could be kept pretty short, which would reduce the impact of disbands/reforms. I don't know how reliable Challonge's Swiss function is, might be better to do the matchups by hand, but that seems like a minor problem. Doing it by hand would basically guarantee that the schedules are going to be about as full of close matches as it's going to get.

I'd like to also get casual regiments as a whole more into the competitive side of things so maybe if they start playing each other more they could form a good base of the community.
it would also be nice to see the 6te and 45e back but I know some semi-competitive regiments like the LIR still play around.

I'd like to help in organizing this league if I could but I'm going to try to get more votes on it and to see who I could host it with etc.



As for the melee only event, tired was thinking of doing like a pros vs joes on the BBG Bot server so we would need like 20 top tier meleers to come in and fend off like 60-80 casuals. I'm thinking of holding just a sign up sheet for that or just invite like a Groupfighting team or the LG/42nd.. any more thoughts on the melee only event?

Mid-week update


So if we do a 4v4 league I (and everyone else) will want the league done in 1-2 months, and will probably have to go with Fartknocker's suggestion of having an increased quantity of matches than your regular league like the NBA but maybe not as extreme so maybe more like the NFL. Still in the infancy stages of organizing this said league.


As for the melee only event tired is helping with setting it up on a weekend. We're going to test it with a single regiment playing against the pubs/casuals, so we invited the LG to play in the first event when it does happen. It would be around 20~ against like 60 or 80 pubs we're hoping. If it goes well we would probably do it again but with the 42nd to include as much as the comp. community too.


If you have any feedback/comments on either then contribute and post please, I'd prefer as much community input as I can.

The melee event is actually one hell of a good idea, especially if you can gather that many pubs. Do you plan on making one specific map for it (or have one already?) because the RGL map might be a bit too small for such large numbers. Either way, really hope Glenn can record his perspective, I want to see how it looks.

I also hope that we won't have like actual NW veterans hiding behind pubs tags just to play against the LG/42nd. Don't want to sound paranoid but the idea is to have an actually trained melee regiment fighting a team made of people who will have nothing but numbers to the advantage right? So if a third of the so-called 'casual' players are in-fact good and experienced players in disguise, it may ruin the spirit of the event. Worth keeping that in mind.



As for the 4v4 league, do you think having like two matches a week would help to have a high quantity of matches in a reasonable period of time or was there something else you had in mind?

We should have a suitable map for it, I believe it'll probably be a decent sized flat map, not like a groupfighting map. The NW vet thing did come across my mind but thanks for mentioning it. If NW vets do decide to play on the casual side it shouldn't be hard to differentiate the two.. Casuals/pubs have a distinct only down-block style so catching someone shouldn't be too hard especially with admin(s).

the 4v4 league would probably be having 2 matches a week, for me it would specifically depend on the amount of teams signing up but yeah that would be ideal, depending on how fast paced people want it.

Ok MAYBE NFL was a bad analogy but I was just referring to how many games were played in one week in the league itself

but pubs hardly know how to down block so the LG should be fine and if we need a few extra people I'm sure it won't be a huge loss.

I think the 2 matches a week is a good idea only if teams can have say 4 subs.

Also how would handling teams that didn't play their match be done? One of the problems in WPC has been where teams are forced to play on a day they can't do even though they offered 5 days for the match and their opposing team offered 1.

Wouldn't it be easier to give teams that can't be active enough forfeits? Either that or give teams 1 extension week if necessary to finish any outstanding matches. Any other alternatives?

Just limit the team starters and have 4 subs who aren't as known (or as sweaty). An example will be have me, waste, yoshie, and havoc and subs like glenn, purplish, etc. So basically there can be a lot of teams with equal skill distribution and avoid those mega stacks.

Just limit the team starters and have 4 subs who aren't as known (or as sweaty). An example will be have me, waste, yoshie, and havoc and subs like glenn, purplish, etc. So basically there can be a lot of teams with equal skill distribution and avoid those mega stacks. Also don't give extensions because it defeats the point of having it 2 a week and I think it'll be better if they just have some more subs.

How did you know?

What I was trying to say is that since there are 2 matches a week, lets say Saturday and Sunday, and my team is myself, waste, havoc, and yoshie. And, for instance, havoc decides not to show up because he has to go to a gay bar, and my subs are rafael and he can play in havoc stead. Basically trying to avoid that scenario and instead have people like purplish and glenn replace havoc or anyone who doesn't show up and not delay the match just to have your "perfect" roster show up. If your full starting roster is there good for you, if not, get more active people.

It's hard to really put a set rule on how good your subs can be but yeah it would be preferable if it was not 4 stacked starters and a stacked bench. I feel like a team captain and 3 starters with 3 bench players would be sufficient. So instead of having extensions the scheduling problem gets eliminated by having multiple substitutes.

Yeah, Waste has a point. But even for a league lasting on a large period of time, having the reserve being as big as the main line-up is a bit ridiculous and could (potentially) prevent a few extra teams to form up. If some people feel two subs isn't enough, then I reckon the perfect middle is three, which I believe is what Windflower already stated.

I'd rather see more work done to revive the casual side of NA. It will eventually have a domino effect on the competitive side. For some reason, since 2016ish NA has been die hard on 1v1/groupfights only and a lot of CR try to do more tournaments or get more bad regiments to 1v1 really good regiments then after a month if that they disband and that's the end.

When was the last time a competitive regiment went to a casual line battle? 6te and Jakes 41st are the last two I can think of. 3eVolt, 54th, 63e, PSG, 9y hell even Law's 91st use to do casual line battles every week.

That's just me though.

I'm gonna try to put a focus on that after comp gets a little sorted out because the comp community is also the FSE community and it needs some direct heals right now. But I think the LG did casual events when they first reformed and also I feel like a lot of the older players got tired/worn out of casual events which is understandable. But your opinion is noted.

Post by: Fartknocker on January 07, 2019, 07:08:34 pm
It wasn't the trading that was broken in WPC, it was the ability to leave the team you were on without consequence. As a player you shouldn't have the power to say "fuck it i'd rather be on that team." and then join a different team. Trades would have to be approved by the commissioner of the league to prevent stacking. We could have a trade deadline as well (ex: week 3 of a 6 week season).

Also if we do a prize pool, there is a better way of doing salaries. We can make it so that the salary of the player is the cut of the prize they would receive. Max salary could be $100 and minimum could be $20 or something like that. We could also base salaries off of draft position so that if you are a first round pick you will get a higher cut of the prize. Salary negotiations could also be a thing to make it more like real life but that'd be pushing it.

Sidenote: I also agree with Lurvy. We need the casual side to grow.

Force regiments to spend a minimum of 30 minutes on a NA siege server to populate it every night and draw noobs in it like what the 63e did.

Add an incentive to get regiments to do it.

Make it a requirement to spend atleast 30 minutes on the siege server to partake in tournaments and leagues.

Threats in this community are impossible to enforce at a community level.

No one has the power to force regiments to spend time in ways they don't wish to spend it.

The CR also doesn't have the power to ban regiments/their members from participating in tournaments and leagues (except for tournaments/leagues hosted by the CR).

Sure he could choose to not promote tournaments hosted by people who don't enforce the "incentive", but most tournament hosts do the promoting themselves so it's inconsequential. Plus that wouldn't do anything but divide the community, which isn't a great way to help grow it, and would pretty much ensure that he wouldn't win should he choose to run again.


If you want comp regiments and players to spend time on pub servers, you 1) have to get them involved in the process and 2) have to give them a legitimate beneficial reason to do so.

End of week update-


Melee only

Glenn uploaded a video of the melee only event that took place on Friday
Spoiler
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBPCReCOpAM
[close]

The problem with our very first "test" event if you will call it was that it was not expected that the pubs would come in 150 strong. This gave problems right away as there had to be pubs swapped over to the LG's side and still they were losing rounds. Not only that but apparently there was some annoying lag issues. Overall the event was well received I believe.

We're looking to host it again probably on the same date next week (still sorting this out) but with the 42nd on the LG's team as well (they aren't sharing teamspeaks). To fix the lag the server is going to be moved to a regular one instead of one with a bunch of scripts that likely was the cause of the lag.

4v4 Draft-
I'm probably going to wait until the end of the month to host the league.

Misc
-8thEPI started doing competitive events
-Lawrence made a regiment

- Midnight is bringing back a line only event

Well, the active and not active part for players has been happening for years and it won't go away, it's something we just gotta deal with and people will play no matter what knowing most of the NW Community most people crave competitive so that's why they'd sign up and a team wouldn't keep them from playing.

Kinda screws over captains though if they waste picks on good players who then decide to drop out.

Pretty sure all of Aftershock quit or went somewhere else because they didn't like the team. Idk really actually that team just imploded

I agree. The system was shit. It only took months of that crap for people to understand why I wanted the rules changed from the start lol. Players should have minimal power in terms of roster transactions. Captains should be dedicated heads of teams similar to a GM in pro sports.

NickCole, Vetro and Montoytoy kept playing into the final 3rd of the tournament. Maccle and ToxicFormat were kicked off atomic during the first trade window and not picked up by other teams, so not sure what they were supposed to do. Sleek quit the league along with Rune and Maniac when they had to take a forfeit.

Aftershock didn't quit because they didn't like the team, they were mostly friends who had been together in 6te. They imploded because they took losses to Infamous and Wolfpack early in the season and it was handled poorly by their Captain, among other things that were handled badly. Moral of that story really is make sure you assign Captains who are actually capable of handling the role.

Only people who really just disappeared were Zappy, Puppytron, Anthony, Charles, Shinto and Dj, Yoloswag.

It really wasn't bad in WPC.

The real problems in the league wasn't people disappearing, it was 1) I don't think everything the league tried to introduce such as trading/transfers was completely thought through and properly implemented. 2) People couldn't handle losses and reacted like toddlers about them. 3) Tournament was way too long which caused real life factors to interrupt peoples ability to play and causing them to go inactive (Dj, Yolo, Anthony, possibly Zappy and Puppytron). If you set a tournament for 15 rounds w/ 1 match per week + 3 off weeks for trades/transfers you're going to have a bad time.

The real problems in the league wasn't people disappearing, it was 1) I don't think everything the league tried to introduce such as trading/transfers was completely thought through and properly implemented. 2) People couldn't handle losses and reacted like toddlers about them. 3) Tournament was way too long which caused real life factors to interrupt peoples ability to play and causing them to go inactive (Dj, Yolo, Anthony, possibly Zappy and Puppytron). If you set a tournament for 15 rounds w/ 1 match per week + 3 off weeks for trades/transfers you're going to have a bad time.

This. I would also add on not all the rules were good either since it got super chaotic w/ transfers and stuff. People abused them.

+1 to the captains can trade players

For the 4v4 I just thought of this but can we not allow a trading period at all after a draft because of how shitty WPC went down. Also can you get people who can help you run the league Flower instead of what Jorge did and just disappear without any help. How are captains going to be chosen?
I think trading should be allowed and not transfers, but like BabyJesus said Captains cannot trade themselves and both trades would have to be approved by both captains and also the mod team. I'm capable of running the league myself since I'm not going to disappear but obviously I will be having/wanting a community mod team to help with everything as doing everything myself though possible is more work than I'd like to take on while attending college.

I think Captains should be chosen by the mod team after everyone is drafted to their teams. The criteria for Captain would probably be something like the most reliable, matured, experienced member etc.

would the way WPC drafted its teams be an issue? (asking because I wasn't involved in WPC's draft process)

WPC Draft involved players being randomly picked per round. So a random 6 players would pop up and you'd have to bid on who you wanted. I want no more of that shit. Make the order random and choose good captains to spread out the talent, then just go round by round and have each captain choose who they want.

So just choose willing players to be Captains out of the player pool and randomize the draft order for the teams the more standard way? It would likely have to have a seperate sign up then for those interested in captaincy then.



also made a small start of week update on the OP

JAN 14 - 21
Ongoing#1 (Melee only pros vs joes event)
The first melee event took place and it was somewhat a success but with the wrinkles ironed out I think this can get established as an actual event with casual regiments but we'll do it with pubs for now I believe and with the LG/42nd's and some mercs help for the next one at least. Date TBD, I think Friday is what we're aiming for again.

Ongoing#2 (4v4 Draft League Fast Paced w/ Proper rules/trade system)
Still fleshing out how the league will be ran (with the help of the community), its rules, who will be helping running, etc. and once those are decided I will begin working on the thread for it and my aim for it is to be hosted in early-mid February.

Ongoing#3 (Amateur NA Duel Tournament(s)
May as well make an official announcement on this planned series of tournaments to be hosted for new/inexperienced players, it will be mainly organized by Jolly with my and others help. I believe these tournaments will commence at the end of the month.

Ongoing #4 (Casual community)
It seems as though some people want a little more done in the casual side of the community which I am all about, I am thinking of what I can do to help with this and I am open to suggestions and am currently investigating myself.

I have a few things I'll be trying to organize with casual regiments to gain interest in comp.

1. Organize 30 minute melee trainings with regiment leaders
    - These melee trainings will be led by 5-10 people depending on the amount of pubs
    - Trainings would include a basic overview of blocking, attacking, fients, communication, and movement in both duels and gfs
    - Aswell as going into more advanced techniques chambering and so on

2. The point of these trainings are not to hold their hand and teach them every step of the way but instead to explain how to go about practicing and how to use servers to practice (e.g Bob gf, Na Duel etc)
    - Encouraging them to practice with their own regiment memebers so they're comfortable with failing around people they know until they're confidence reaches the point where they can play around high level players with out giving up entirely.


Instead of pointing fingers on why the comp scene isn't growing I'd like to focus on way of growing the comp scene.  My whole goal for this is not to throw people into the deep end of comp but instead finding those players who wish to improve their melee abilities slowly while keeping up motivation.

This is going to take time and I am willing to put into the time to teach newer players.  I'm already doing this within the 15e and I feel with this experience I can help a lot with growing the community. 

As well with the addition of my amateur duel tournament which if sucessful I hope to continue with more amateur tournaments(not leagues) E.g. 2v2, gfs etc

I find it somewhat hard to write out and explain properly.  If you have any questions and wish to discuse this over TS pm on Steam (https://steamcommunity.com/id/TheJollyCanadian/)

The pubs on the BBG discord are asking about training for the Pros Vs Joes 2 now this Friday. They want to train, but they don't know how. So this might be a good way to funnel people into regiments. You and I and the CR should work on a plan to use this event to regiments' advantage.  There is definitely interest. I also have a dead server script called Mountain of Wisdom from Kanade that you can train against bots that I can bring up, might be a fun way to get pubs started in their Regiment career.

For sure, that's great that they're showing interest in improving. Establishing the event with other regiments is the next step and ye we should make a plan to further propagate their interests into the comp. scene and training them is one way.

The Pubs are talking smack, so I'm going to make it around a 2:1 ratio for the pubs, hopefully 100v50 and limit the server to 150 slots. Then I think it'll showcase a bit better what regiments can do.

Hopefully see you guys tonight

Pros vs Joes went well tonight with both 42nd and LG I think, they got their revenge on the pubs and the server was fine. Ended up being close in some rounds though actually with a 40 v 95-100. The next iteration I believe will involve solely the LG against a proper balance of pubs for a REAL challenge. Can they pull it off?

What I had mentioned to Tired is that we do it just like this week but some rounds of only LG or only 42nd just so incase it is too much for just one regiment we can still combine. Also maybe a little longer? This one lasted like 15 minutes, I'm sure we could implement some fun stuff in the future with different game modes also.

It would seem err inconvenient to keep swapping regiments and them making them wait an entire round in spec imo. I do think we should make it longer and also add some more variation ofc.
I had thought of doing it on a siege map too but yeah that's a good fix for it.

though the top 2 may seem like competitive events they are really there benefiting the casual community more than anyone imo,
is there anything you had in mind in particular Yoshie since you're keen on posting here?

Should really start sign ups and rule talks for 4v4 league imo. The longer it takes the less interested people will be. One month of sign ups should be good, this other stuff should be done then we can start.

Sure. But I don't think people will lose interest if I wait 4-5 more days to post the thread. Most people are probably unaware and only the core competitive community that visit this thread would know.

JAN 28 - FEB 4
Ongoing #1 - 4v4 Draft League ($150 prize pool)
So after polling the community it has been decided this will be the next league. The thread has been posted and there have been around 30 signups already. The next step for me is to make the teams and then work out the dates and also the draft itself.

Ongoing#2 - North American Amateur Duel Tournament
The duel tournament went down the other day with the amateur players and we had a decent turnup with German_Gunner winning it. The next one will take place likely around late Feb-early March.

Ongoing#3 - Possible resurgence of line only linebattles (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=40542.0), hosted by Midnight
I'm not sure how much the community is into this but it could be nice for "competitive regiments" who want to attend more linebattles again instead of waiting to schedule groupfights all the time.
Ongoing#4 - Talks of another season of NWL?

Line Only went out well tonight. A few rule breaks here and there but that's to be expected. Had around a total of 90 or so attendees to the event with definite room for more. I encourage all lines to attend as it's not just for competitive regiments. The 2ndHan who is a dominate casual regiment did very well tonight.

Good to hear, that's pretty decent for a first event and the event can only grow from here with the addition of more regiments over time.

Ongoing#1 - 4v4 Draft League
We have signed up 45 players, the captains have been announced, and the draft is set to take place this Sunday. This is what I'm primarily working on right now and have directed most of my attention to. As well as some side community issues.

Ongoing #2 The apparent end of WPC
WPC has been booked for this Sunday apparently to finally end the league. This kinda marks the shift in major tournaments as the 4v4 league is just getting started.

Ongoing#3 Melee only event
I don't have any information regarding this, I haven't received word from tired or anyone really if they wanted to put one together but now is kind of inconvenient at the same time I suppose.

Well, don't bm team NA when you didn't even play in the matches. We beat Spain, We beat Germany, if they would've upheld half rounds EU half rounds NA, we would've beat NL/BE too, so yes, I do think we represented well.

It doesn't matter if "you would have won", you and others on the team completely made NA look like shit bags. From what I've heard the captain of Germany wasn't even upset at losing to us, he was upset about how toxic you guys were.

In what way did I personally make NA look like shit bags? At no point was I ever disrespectful to the organizers, opposing captains or players.

But this is exactly what I'm talking about. You're talking shit without even being there and it shows because you don't know what the fuck you're talking about.

In our German match we weren't even toxic, their players started making 9/11 and Boston Marathon jokes, then some of our players responded by making Nazi jokes. For the most part we weren't even in all chat.

The only match we were "toxic" in was our match vs Turkey. Players were frustrated at the refs and engaged in some banter with Turkish players.

Calling me a dumbass does prove your point a lot more than just leaving it what just happened. I only heard from Fireboy and some others about what happened so of course I don't know what all happened but I'll be the bigger man and say sorry for assuming all the fault was on NA. There was fault on both sides and hopefully you guys get a rematch. It wasn't you talking shit by any means during the match but others on the team who are uncontrollable and say whatever they want. 

And from asking more people about what happened with other matches such as Germany I do have a bigger picture about what happened. I still don't approve people on our side shit talking by any means. Some people should just suck it up and be the bigger man and not respond. But I will admit I jump to conclusion too quickly from only one source.

MAR 1 - 8

Ongoing #1 - Rise of Public Groupfighting and fall of BoB Groupfighting
Recently since BoB pretty much dissolved it saw the rise in popularity of Public Groupfighting which brings back NA_Groupfighting style administration with little tweaks and pretty cool scripts involving assists, no kd resetting, etc. Dallas Groupfighting seems to be kind of an absent placeholder but it's kind of hard to tell what's going on with that server. For now there is a central groupfighting server which is a good thing and a decent change for the community as it does also have better administration that BoB was somewhat lacking.

Ongoing #2 - NWDL
Currently NWDL is in its third week and things are progressing relatively smoothly with only a few bumps in the road with some minor tweaks here and there. The waiver wire will be at the end of this week after all the matches are completed and the captains will pick from the free agency pool.

Ongoing #3 - More (unique) competitive events
Brought to you by Jolly & Vetro with Fireboy's idea is the randomized 2v2 tournament  (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=41065.0)in which you are paired up with a random partner from the sign ups to compete. Since this is a 2v2 there is a possibility to have a lot of teams so make sure you guys sign up and get your friends to sign up to make this a real tournament.

Brought to you by Dan the Chef is another one of his innovative tournaments, this time being a 5v5 capture the flag "test" tournament which has potential to be fun given there's enough interest/sign ups for it. You can sign up for the tournament here  (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=41034.0)but you'll need a team to sign up with.

There are also a couple of other competitive events in the works but I'm not privy to that information.(;

Ongoing #4 - EU Tournament thing
Also this past week the NA team of the Napoleon's Cup EU tournament was eliminated due to bad sportsmanship long story short. It's not really worth going into and I'm sure most of you know the situation as it's the same shit every year. Pretty shitty to hear but it happens I guess and really you just have to move on because it is their tournaments in the end. There has been talk of hosting a "fair" world cup with multiple servers and all that but that would have to be well orchestrated and ran professionally in order to succeed I believe.

In all seriousness, Team Canada managed to make cross-continent relationships work in NWWC. I A) don't know the situation and B) don't know if this is addressed at the EU's, but it seems like the only times there have been issues with WC style tournaments have been the US boycotts and this, whatever this is

The problem with the WC style tournaments is that they are European tournaments which discriminate against the NA region (which is fair, it's their events), but they are promoted and exhibited as a world cup tournament. This bias almost always will raise issues/questions every year. The solution to this is not to create a biased NA world cup tournament but a fair solution in which all nations can compete without facing bias from the organizers. Canada manages to make it work (for the most part) because we've been willing to participate in these tournaments because they are the only ones in which USA/Canada may represent themselves on a global scale so we not only do not mind the timezones but also don't mind the ping.

There honestly wasn't a huge issue until our match vs Netherlands.

The problem arose because the organizers announced that teams would be required to face us 5 rounds EU, 5 rounds NA, but didn't enforce it against Netherlands.

I don't think there would've been any problems if they either just stuck with having us do all 10 rounds on EU, or just actually enforced doing 5 and 5, instead of leaving it up to whatever Captain we were facing and how sportsmanlike they were feeling.

At least then we could prepare for our circumstances instead of being like "Well let's hope our next opponent isn't a sack of shit".


But I honestly don't care anymore, we all know who would've won if we went back to NA after that 2-3 half  ::), I wish them good luck in their journey to 4th place.

END OF TERM/START OF TERM UPDATE


Well well well, the people have chosen wisely once again.

First off, I want to start by thanking you all for voting me in to my FOURTH community representative term. I appreciate all who voted in the election. This will likely be my last term serving as CR. I have been preoccupied with doing college in the morning as well as working 3-11 shifts right after that so it has not left me with so much free time this last week. I want to apologize as it was not a great time to be absent. This is not an indicator of the term though as I do plan to be actually even more active than I was in the last term.


ONGOING #1 - RECENT HACKING ALLEGATION
Recently there have been allegations of hacking against Matt. There was a community meeting held by Jolly (pretty much my vice-CR), and the conclusion was that the evidence was not conclusive enough to bring down the hammer. There has also been a dedicated thread to the matter here. (https://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=41368.60) Matt being an extremely skilled player and being considered the most well rounded player in NA at the moment by many, so when the allegations were brought forth it turned into a "shit-show". People posting about this on multiple threads and people gossiping etc etc. It has been pretty much settled. Matt I believe has also started to step away from the game from what it seems to me.

ONGOING #2 - THE END OF THE 4V4
Really this has been my central focus of my last term in making sure this would be ran smoothly and would be something that would be enjoyed by the vast majority of the community. Something people could get excited about in 2019. I have received help from many members of the community and this league being ran as successful as it has would not be possible without their contributions. It was my goal from the start to make this less of a dictatorship and more of a community based league where all input is valued and appreciated. And it has been. Since this is one of the first properly ran draft leagues there were problems that were encountered but it was mainly just a culmination of a bunch of small issues that we sorted out throughout the season. This is to be expected imo of the first iteration of the league and if/when we decide to do this league again (whether it be 4v4 or another kind), these problems will be dealt with and improved upon in order to make "a perfect league". I appreciate everyone's patience, participation, and concerns with the league.

The last match week of the league is ending on the 9th. The post-season championship will be followed the week after so stay tuned!

ONGOING #3 - WHAT I WANT TO ACCOMPLISH IN MY FOLLOWING TERM
To keep it to the point, I'll quote my application in spoilers as well as brief the application.
Windy's App
Quote from: Windflower
Name: Windflower
EU or NA?: NA
Are you aware that the position of Community Representative is one of trust and confidence, and do you understand you can be punished for breaking that trust?: Yes
Why should you become CR?:

       I felt good about my last term, a real sense of some accomplishment within the scene and I only want to do more and more and more for the benefit of the community. I feel like I have more to do especially since the 4v4 league has occupied much of my recent time. I think the community was overall satisfied with my recent term which is good and I plan to inject the community with as much life as I can. I also feel like I have the most experience with this position and I have only found ways to better the role and make use of it. Though the casual side of the community may have been a bit neglected by me for this recent term hopefully I can put my efforts towards that more strongly this next term as I won't be so preoccupied with running the 4v4 league.

My competency as an administrator and moderator alone lead me to believe I am the best candidate for this role. Also a critique for myself might be that I'm not as active as I should be due to school and working closing shifts. School is pretty coming to a close and I know that I'm going to be online a lot more to deal with the player base and whatever may be going on. The community has been a lot more involved with these recent CR terms which is really good for the role itself and has brought the role to something more community based rather than the sole-CR based.

While the casual community may have been neglected a little they seem to putting along without too much distress. It's also important to remember that the competitive community makes up probably like 90-95% of FSE (which is where the CR's strengths lie.). Without the competitive community there basically is no community which would render the CR role a whole lot more useless. It is kind of important to elect a fitting person into the role of CR because it can actually impact the community more than you think. Other than that, I'm planning to keep doing what I'm doing.

I want to
- TEND TO ANY COMMUNITY NEEDS/WANTS/CONCERNS
- AID IN RUNNING NWL/OTHER POSSIBLE MAJOR COMP EVENTS
- TEND TO THE CASUAL COMMUNITIES CONCERNS

- AID THE CAVALRY COMMUNITY
- COOPERATE WITH OTHER COMMUNITY MEMBERS IN INCREASING QUALITY OF EVENTS
- CONTINUE WITH WEEKLY/BI-WEEKLY UPDATES (i know y'all love em')


ANY COMMENTS, QUESTIONS, CONCERNS, QUERIES,
PLEASE DON'T BE SHY TO INPUT ON THE THREAD OR IF YOU'RE NOT COMFORTABLE MAKING A PUBLIC POST I'M ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO PM ON FSE OR I'M WELCOME TO STEAM MESSAGES AS WELL.

April 15 - 22

Ongoing #1 Playoffs
We're finally in the closing times of the playoffs in the 4v4 league going on now as there are just 2 matches left to be played. The winner will go home with a total $150 pool and the loser will go home with nothing. Thanks! Until next season.

Ongoing #2 NANWL
This is going to be the next BIG event in the NW competitive scene so many resources will be used to make sure the 9th instalment of NANWL will run smoothly and professionally and that it also lives up to previous versions. The league sign-ups close May 4th and the league starts on May 11th so it will be a week or two after the 4v4 league ending that we will loop into a different league. The summer in particular is looking to see a little boost as is expected but the events and regiments popping up will increase even further I expect. For this season we've even seen the return of season 1 champions the 1aSvea. They're led by Wardop again but also seemed to be backed by quite a few of the former 93rd players to give it that kinda new gen. interest, good luck to them!

Ongoing #3 More events
After the 4v4 and during NWL I plan to host and contribute to a decent amount of competitive events. I'm also trying to see right now if a cavalry league is viable, for one to be worth while I would have to say around 5 regiments/detachments should sign up. I would also probably try to bring back the 1stMI (Mounted Infantry) under a different name (2ndMI) so basically just 4. It's a small community and I'm not that much into the cavalry scene so I'd probably have to get the help of a couple vets that know their way around the community more closely.

Ongoing #4 One groupfighting server
We have returned to the one groupfighting server days again which is fine as long as the administration is capable, not corrupt, and caters to the community it should do just fine and provide a centralized server for people. Go with the flow.(:

Ongoing #5 Australians
I fully support the Australians/OC, I did allow them (kinda) to post their event threads in the NA event board until they were recently just granted their own boards for NW and BCoF which is cool for them, it should contribute to the activity of FSE as a whole and they are a decently sized community.

MAY UPDATE

First I'd like to apologize for the lack of any updates for the month of May. To conclude the ending of this month I will be posting this update. This has been a busy month for me personally as well as an uneventful month for NW besides the starting of NWL and a few other things, but here's what's in the works.

Ongoing#1 - Tiered Duel Tournament & Unarmed Tournament
With May seeming like a pretty uneventful month and the only major thing that's running being NWL since the draft league ended, it is time for the summer action to kick off. In the works right now is a Tiered Duel Tournament similar to the Amateur Duel Tournament hosted previously but with tiers for both pros AND joes and prizes for both. It is Jolly & I's plan to make this as large as we possibly can to bring back the recent lull of individual/non-regimental competitive events whilst also bringing in newer players to the scene. The thread will be posted within the next 2 days so stay tuned for that.

Following the Tiered Duel Tournament is something I came up with and had a map made specially for it courtesy of Zebaad. What this will be is an unarmed tournament (punches & kicks) aimed to involve everyone from all ranges of the community in one mega tournament to answer the question of who is the ultimate master of the fist (& foot). The plan to make this work on a large scale is to amplify the damage of punches and kicking through the usage of scripts to realistic damage levels to make the matches A. faster B. realistic and C. possible in a tournament setting. There will also be several arenas on the map designed after cage-match style MMA arenas. Here's a sneak peek.

Ongoing #2 - Leagues & Summer 2019
Not much to say on this front as NANWL has now been under way and is currently in its second week. This league can take up to 3 months so it may feel slow while the other events are going on but the administration and Risk are dealing with issues well and are maintaining the stability in what may be the last season. This isn't necessarily the largest but not the smallest NANWL either so there is much to look forward to for season 9.

As for NA's cavalry league I've kinda put that on the backburner right now while everything else goes on, if anyone has any suggestions for this league or NA cavalry in general feel free. Right now my focus is on the competitive scene in NA as it makes up the majority of the forum users as I've said before which is the most important thing. With this also comes with introducing the casual players into the competitive scene and in term FSE as a whole which is partly the reason for these upcoming events. This upcoming summer will hopefully be a prosperous last push for the community. As 2019 continues into Fall it seems the state of the community seems a little foggy so we might as well make the most of it while we can.

Do you want my boxing ring?
I think I'll stick with the octagons in the current map I have but thanks ya

just do a battle royale for the unarmed thing
Good idea, I may implement that for maybe right after the tournament which would also keep the spectators, or something that may serve as its own installment. I think the 1v1 style format is most appealing though to determine a sole champion and with the scripts I'm hoping the length of the matches drastic go down.




personal
In other news working the 4pm-12am shift has its benefits as I have only had to deal with a few people during the entire night which gave me some time to make this post.

Well the new elections are soon now that you mention . .
though I may not be CR for this next term that's alright since it's been time for a new CR to bring this era to a close.

I may not hold the title either in a few weeks but that will not mean I will stop my efforts in contributing to the longevity of the NA community. Though I will not have the CR title that will not matter mostly since the importance and ability of the power lies between being the representative for the administration between/for the community and the official forum administration.

The added benefits of being CR are more of luxuries in which I believe someone could make better use out of since honestly it's been 4 terms and I've been running out of juice. I ran for this 4th time because I believe I still would have benefited the community as CR more than anyone who was interested in running for CR at the time and as well as the fact that I still felt I had more to give after my last term ended.

Election procedures

On the 20th (for months lasting 30 days) and on the 21st (for months lasting 31 days) I will open a thread on this board with all candidacies in the first post. Candidates may put themselves forward on that thread, or by PM (though obviously they will be added to the list). Only those from NA can run for NA rep.  Same on the EU side.  Exceptions may be made to run for the other side but you will have to talk to shadow first to get approval. The thread will be open, so people can discuss the election.

After 5 days, I will open the election, giving people three days to vote in the first round. Any run-off will start directly after the results are known, and last two days. On the first day of the new month, the new CR's will take office and the old ones will leave - unless, of course, they are re-elected.
