- Organize it over a long period of time.
- Attempt to get 3+ teams.
- Don't allow people to play for other states(like i did today, lol)
- Games should be played 7:30-8:30+ on a Sunday (Not friday or saturday)
- Have CAPTAINS that are WILLING to organize their teams.

@yourself, Is the leaked wolf any good?
@everyone, YEAH NSW SUCK IT QLD!!!
@fizz, find where I posted my list and follow it. You need to organise things in a certain way or it falls to pieces as you may have seen.

Cheers

When we tried to organise it I had a hard time getting things done because everyone wanted something different.

Have structure and like blusky said...have captains that are willing to get their team organised. Communication is the key here. Captains discuss amongs themself and set date and the admins/mods setout the rest.

You should really have more than two states in this and get ETTV going lol. That with venty is GGs/lols for the rest.

does anybody mind if i organise the people part of it and have maybe wicked or someone else organise the maps part.
cause no offence guys but you suck :p
and they think chics are never on time lol.
hahaha but yeah i think you should have outkasts cause not all the other states are going to get enough players so maybe combine together and hit it off.
also maybe a more standout post should be made and prior notice for a bit so that people know its coming up
cause i didnt know until like last minute :)

- Get a banner on the server with what time and the ip to the next origin map
- when teams have to get other state players to fill in numbers, they forfeit
- Advertise it in game as well, many players dont use the forums
- Play at a later time - 8:30 on sunday/monday/tuesday/wednesday/thursday's

You need structure and organisation.

Players know what state they are from. Nominated captians gather information on which days most of the players can play. Then captains discuss amongst each other while adminds/mods suggest who plays next. Once captains have made up their minds on date/time via talking to their team mates it is then put forward to the admins which organise the server and commercialise the next match so that everyone knows.

If the captians dont do their job, which is what happend when I and others did this on the previous server, it all fell appart.

Problem is who can play on which day so captains have to keep his/her team members well informed.

You have the potential to have public scrim sessions from players across the states so make it count and get things organised.

Considering that I was playing ET today on dialup and it didnt went too badly I will gladly sign up fo the VIC team. :D

How hard can it be........

Contact the states captains, make the captains responsible for contacting players and nominate 3 time slots.
The two opposing captains post their available times and choose the common time slot or make a compromise.
Book a server and G-trains your uncle!!!

Dont know why you guys over complicate the most simplest of tasks.

If only things ran this smoothly, as you suggest, when it comes to the crunch time. Why do you think M@ilda and I had a hard time getting this thing going in the first place.....disorganised and loss of contant betwen teh hierarchy.

Im thunbs up for this to go ahead....it seems I have already joined the VIC team by some miracle editing not on my behalf lol :p

What? It was so easy on OGN, we set a time and people arrived. The first Roaches Vs Toads game went without a hitch.
It started getting complicated when 5 different people posted time slots around and pulling game times from out of their arses.

When all the captains took control of things it was ting ting ting NSW series CHAMPIONS!
