Oh, incidentally, it seems that we could use the same methods (challonge.com etc) to set up tourneys too, if we wanted. Might just keep in touch with Punasaurus Rex and see if he's planning any more first, though!

Seems sensible to do them all together.

Well, he's not definitely going to do another GM one but he said maybe mid-March.

So this was actually really cool. Loads of people involved and hanging out on TeamSpeak/Steam chat, and got some good games in. The major problems were waiting around for other people's matches, which took ages either due to no-shows or neither player bothering to chase the other, and the servers getting laggy due to crowding occasionally. I think with some super-strict organisation, it could be over in an hour and be all fun with no waiting.

Aye, I agree. Though I do think the Servers need to handle the load better before another bash at something like this :(

Seems most of Gun Monkeys issues at the moment is connectivity related.

Yeah, the servers were busy but not that busy. About twenty people on the heavy ones?

I think for the next tourney, one person would have to not take part and just coordinate. Then we could allocate a server to each match to make sure they don't all go in US 1 and overload it. We could also ask people not currently playing to exit the servers - ideally they would only have to do this for five minutes at a time as all matches in a round would be played concurrently.

Not exactly Ideal though really to have to tell people to leave the server because Gun Monkeys cant handle 10 people at once :(

I'm not even sure what happened up until about a month ago the servers was great now they have issues handling less than a handful of people.

Also It would be a good idea to spread them out over servers but I think the servers above 2 only become active once a amount of players has filled the previous one, but I would need that confirmed.

Your the boss mate, I'll follow your direction but I am just voicing my concerns about the connectivity and PR surrounding it that could be negative during an event this organised.
