|10/10/2009 00:28:56 Tournament On Jovana's!|
Just want to know if anyone is interested in playing a 20 person tourney on this map (rated).
I know that I've played it more than anyone, then probably followed by Von B, but he would agree with me that it really doesn't matter how many times you've played. It's a testament to true skill, because it's balanced. Also, it's a testament that if the map is balanced, having played it many times really gives you no advantage. I've been beaten by the following people who hadn't played Jovana's as much as I have.
Stirling - beat me his first time playing the map.. It was rated.. Since then his record on that map against me is 6 - 0.. lol
Rahl - schooled me many times there.. I think record is like 3 - 1 for him
Juffe - beat me once on there I believe, I still want a rematch.
Tygerdave - Crushed me many times there, just recently got revenge : )
Pyldrvr - beat me like 3 times ina row on there!.. was sick.. I got revenge a few months ago : )
Knechtrupercth - I think I spelled it wrong
And many others I can't remember.. Either way, the point is I think it would be fun to have this tourney. I like to think this is where I do best, but I have been surprised before. Comments/questions/insults are appreciated : )

|ill play but if its rated then VonB is out|

|I have to disagree that having played it a bunch is not an advantage. I have only really played this map against you, a few times. I had fairly good luck until you (and others) developed a new strategy where sea forces are built but are worthless because of DFA coverage. You caught me on this new strat and whipped me up pretty good after I made the mistake of spending thousands of points on sea forces which were my ultimate demise. I know the new strat now, but having not known that made for a loss. You even pulled me out of 'rated games retirement' to show me the new skillz you have achieved and get your revenge . While I knew there were nefarious details attached to the game and knew I would probably lose points knowing you had played it a bunch since (which I was ok with)I still have to say that knowledge of the map is critical to gain a win against a player who has played the map a lot. That being said, I like the map and think it is balanced but there are nuances and strategies that will give a player who is knowledgeable on the map an advantage as is with all maps.|

it's critical, but not necessary.. also, I learned the new tricks from someone who had never played the map before (Stirling).. lol.. So I don't know, that may contradict your argument.
I guess it does make a difference for a great percentage of people, but honestly, after a certain level of play, I don't think there's really a difference.
Whatyousay still beats me on that map, regardless of any tricks.. I haven't beaten him there in like 2 months.
The question is though Pyl, are you in the tourney or not? : ) That's the subject of this post, I want to know who's interested

P.S.. if Stirling or Juffe end up join the tourney, then my chances of winning it are slim!.. And they've played it only a small fraction of the number of times I've played : )..
K, we only have 2 people in the tourney so far.. please let me know if you're interested : )

Didn't you say Comments/questions/insults are appreciated ?
I don't think it would be too harsh to say playing on your own self-styled "home turf" stacks the odds a little in your favour (please don't take this as criticism, I'd want the same)
I have a vague (and possibly unjustified lol) feeling that you also owe me some revenge on this map, but I'm going to decline; I find Jovana's a little dull for some reason

I'm in GD. i'm enjoying the chess-like pace and play on Jovana's, although i do agree that experience is a strategic asset. but so is an innovative mind.
My only caveat is that i'd like the number of games i need to have on the go for the tourney at one time to be a few rather than a ton.
like 2-4 instead of 6-12

Actually, I like the map enough to play it rated against anyone. I'm in

|I'll pass on this one, I'd be dead very quickly against the current entrys. Plus, I've never really liked that map. Never won on that map.|
|10/10/2009 18:05:48 Re:Tournament On Jovana's!|
|daphron, i'll play you on that map. Your odds might go up.|
|10/10/2009 18:45:23 Re:Tournament On Jovana's!|
|na, I haven't really participated in the tourneys. I'm just a casual player these days. I just wanted to comment on your statement that there is no 'home turf' advantage which I disagree with to a certain point. Anyway, have fun with the tourney and good luck to all the participants!|

|10/10/2009 20:34:34 Re:Tournament On Jovana's!|
|Warmaker, my chances will still be a loss. I'll play if you invite though. Ever since starting drdrew's tourneys, I don't have slots open.|
