Ok, how many weeks you want to have for training from the moment I release the map & post the Tournament and the Tournament games. I myself think a 3 weeks would be just fine, please post your opinion.
- Minute 1: turn on your computer
- Minute 2: open StarCraft, connect to the server
- Minute 3: find and join the game. Download the latest version of the map if you have the old one.
There is no reason to spam..
This is not spamm. I think it would me much cooler if we had no training time at all. Improvising and learning everything while playing the first time is much more fun.
3 weeks training time. An extra week just in case a mapping contest is launched
2 weeks! My team got practice ahead of time ;D
4 weeks, Not everybody is 100% active and get a lot of training done in 2 weeks, 3 weeks is an obscure number of weeks and the month is always going to have a SEN contest so the extra week would be useful.
No matter how much time you give them, they will do all their training (if any) in the last day before the tourney begins.
Actually, Doodan's idea is pretty good. Give people 10 minutes before the first game. Send a PM to each member of each team that is on B.net with a copy of the map and say "you're playing in 5 minutes" people would load the map, and go. No time to train.
But then again, we can always train on the prequel map.
