"Why Ladna, why are you spamming the tournament boards with your IDL stuff?"
I'll tell you why. Up until now, IDL games haven't been officially scheduled, they just happened when they happened. Usually this resulted in all games (or nearly all) being played on Sunday between 10pm & 12am EST, which wasn't optimal for European players, or players that had class/work in the morning. So the IDL developed a scheduling system, with the end result being games that have a specified date & time in the future. The main benefit of this is that players don't need to watch the IDL IRC channel like a hawk to avoid missing games, they can just show up at game time. So I started posting the game times here.
However, I've updated the IDL site (http://www.intldoomleague.org/schedule) so that game times are shown on the site itself, thus removing the need for me to post here anymore! So I highly encourage everyone to check the schedules page for the week's upcoming games; schedules are almost always posted by Wednesday. And again, should you miss a game you can always download all player POV demos from http://www.intldoomleague.org/demos.
You might also have noticed that there's a separate IDDL league. The IDDL, or International Developmental Doom League, is a league designed for IDL free agents that aren't currently drafted onto a team. The idea is that players can improve their skills and potentially be drafted up into the IDL. IDDL information is available at http://www.intldoomleague.org/?league=IDDL (clicking the league name on the right side of the screen switches back and forth), or you can ask Goatface about it if you're interested.
See you in server!
