Hello! After exploring the european tournament section, I've come to the conclusion that I'd like to see our side of the world become as active as them, because let's face it, we should always be better than them.

So this is what Uncle Sam has to say:

Uncle Sam wrote:
Hello my fellow Americans. As a hard-working, law-abiding citizen myself, I understand that times can be up and down. I also understand that people have lives and need to take care of their business. However, I am deeply saddened to see this complete lack of activity in this tournament section on such a wonderful side of the world. So here is what I'll say and we'll leave it at that:

What will you do for your country, your side of the world? Become active, grow, prosper. Let's show those Euros that we're better just because we are. Thank you, goodnight and as always--God Bless America.


So yeah people, let's get some tournaments going on around here! COME ON! It's almost been a year since someone has posted here, isn't that a bit sad? In all seriousness, let's get the ball rolling. I'll do anything and everything I can to help. Just understand that I play a limited roll as I have a son and a wife to attend to first, but I'll gladly join a tournament as long as it boosts some acitivty around here.

Ah c'mon guys, what's wrong with a bit of hyperbole when you're trying to kickstart something? Good luck getting something going again Hatred!

See, Cybershark acknowledges that we're just too awesome. Haha, I'm kidding, of course. Look, I'm not really even trying to take a stab at Euros, I'm just trying to have some fun, but at the same time I'm also trying to get this side of the world active again. The worst thing of it all is, only Euros have posted in this post so far. And that is something that is seriously wrong. So come on you filthy yanks, let's get this show on the road!

It's a very good point. The converse with regards to CTF is true in Europe. No new ECL yet.

The best thing you can do is run an unofficial tourney Hatred. Get in 4-6 players. Quick and nasty, get it done. That'll get things going again. Invite players in instead of waiting for them to post.

Official tourneys are still dead, the European ones are Unofficial. We got tired of it in the Euro section and a few players set up their own tourneys. Nero Dewww and Cybie set up unofficial rankings and two 1on1 tourneys a month, while I ran Vendetta for clans.

You should get a few players together and do the same. It will work.


If you build it, they will come. Wink

While I wish you the best of luck, I highly doubt that you'll be able to get the North American doom scene to play anything other than CTF. Lets face it, there hasn't been a DM, or TDM tourney in over a year now (With the exception of ZDDL.) and I doubt one will have much luck now. Sorry to be so negative, but I just see little chance of one actually happening. I guess we DM lovers are just a minority that is growing smaller with each day. Sad

I'll join any 1on1 tournaments. I like them because they are quick and dirty by nature. Cool

Madman, if you join, I'll definitely join!

br0k3n, if you're reading this, you should join, too!

All you need are a minimum of 4 players for a mini tourney. I'm pretty sure you could get 8. If you stick with it and chase people up, the tourneys will grow again, once people start talking about them and gain bragging rights.

Let some of the Euros sign up as well and you'll get a larger tourney.

I'd be willing to join a 1 on 1 tourney, but it would help if I had an actual internet connection at home Razz. Hopefully I'll be getting one soon, but then again who knows. Anyways if I do end up getting a connection soon, then count me in.

The even funnier thing about this little "lol" requote sequence is that the only ones who've quoted it are complete euro-trash: lol. Wink
