Get your nappies ready; it's time to cream yourselves.

Build the hype, and spread the word because I intend to make this even more succesful than 2 years ago. Let's do it together, let's spread the word to all the old greats - I know a lot of them are active and I'd love to see some top names, once again, take part in yet another epic season of dueling expertise.

Post your interests and ideas here if you like, but I'll be saying little more other than I'm getting webspace next Thursday and I'm already in the process of planning everything!

Europeans Champions League... Coming soon to a Doom port near you...

To make a poll about a substitute instead of the big shoot d5M7. There are many better maps imho. Usually people play d5m1,judas,map01,king, but d5m7 very seldom. Very Happy Yeah i have to admit that king is popular and should be in. Anyway it is just my opinion, i suppose that the maplist would be the same as in the season one...

I'll probably stick with d5m7, no need for a poll for anything, yet.

woo i'm definitely spraying cum everywhere! Hope there will be a ctf league running alongside, but this is good.

How about streaming some games with commentary this time? Not sure how big interest there will be tho since it's not quake we're talking about here. But this way we could keep the match servers passworded and private and people could still watch em live (little delay ofc). This would hopefully eliminate the laggy feel spectators seem to bring to most servers (is it just me but whenever theres many spectators the game starts lagging?)
Streaming would also make it easy to promote zdaemon gameplay to those unfortunate ones who've not yet got to play it. Let's bring more newbies to zd!

I personally don't think the maplist should go through changes. I still very much dislike d5m7 but there needs to be one map the mindless ssg-zombies can win amirite? Smile Only map i'd even consider would be ssl2 but bleh, I say keep the old map pool!

can we call premiership div1 this time? :) it was silly to explain how i was in division 2 that was 3rd actually.
d5m7 is the stupidest and ssl2 is even more stupidest. just use fuloser or greenwar map28 for less stupidest ssg bash. but what do i know, i'm just a lowly div2 coming to div1. i mean to div2. from div3. called div2. uhhh.
looking fwd to this!

runk: Dweller is a nightmare for OS settings, a lot of scattered weapons. ssl2 is too small, and gw for a tourney like this? I don't think so! Hell why am I justifying myself? d5m7 is staying put!

dew: Yes, I'll make those changes to stop any silly confusion - but it did look good!

turska: I'd love to stream games and have casters, I've done it once myself so I'd be happy to do so again if any of you chumps want to join in? Also we need a streamer. Oh and yeah, if this picks up interest then ECDL will try again!

I thought I said I wasn't saying anything Mad

The same 5 maps again - the same ones in zddl - is boring. We could do with some variety, however, the maps will still have to be very familiar to everyone. If you want to keep d5m7 why not have 7 maps to chose from? I don't see a problem with ssl2, but I do agree that dweller plays bad on OS. Map03 is another possibility too although its quite a specialist's map.

Last time I think the lower divisions had a different map selection which I wasn't happy with. I would say the same across the all divisions this time.

dk : They will be the same maps across all divisions. And they will be the same 5 maps as before, if they bore you, run an NS league! (I plan to soon, anyway.) But just remember this is ECL and these are, at present, the most prestigious 5 maps in Europe. Nothing else comes close to being played as much as these, other than possibly ssl2 but screw that!

7 maps would not work as the finals are all bo5 (all maps) they'd just make more hassle, which is not necessary.

EDIT: For those who can't guess the maps, they are as follows:

DooM2 Map01;
Dwango5 Map01;
Dwango5 Map07;
Judas23_ Map23;
King Map01.

Keep firing, boys!

fluff : I'm buying a bunch of domains next week, and when I get internet in my new place I'll get the hosted with someone... ASAP! So it'll probably look like this www.rqreview.com/ecl and /ecdl for when I do that, too.

And well said on the maps front, other maps are played monthly, just look at what shark and dew (a bit me) have acheived in these tourneys over the last 18 months! Tourneys are hugely active again and this will only add to the fun, but the maps are sticking!

We gotta have map01 edits in place too... imagine a huge game that is being streamed and commentated live.... . "and now turska is waiting for ocelot to come out..." "ocelot seems to be waiting for turska to come in though... .... .... you guys seen Inception? it's not bad at all"

and Ufon needs to get off his lazy ass and join up this time.

oce : Yes, I forgot to mention I'll be going ahead with the edits dew and some others worked hard towards. We'll do some more testing to ensure it is as fair as possible, and kudos to them for thinking ahead!

Not see Ufon in a while...

'cept i'm not in charge of ECL, so why bring up my name in regards of it. if you meant my involvement with the map01 hack, why not use a formula1 analogy instead. ;)

ninja edit: also FU for calling me french. :P

Aha what?

ECL is serious business thanks! I'm going to go through any rule changes there may be with my helpful team of monkees! Any rule changes that people think should be adopted please voice them here, or forever be ignored.

Commentating is a beautiful thing. I can see scenarios where it's more diverse in the Euro population because there's obviously many different languages spoken, so finding a caster for everyones respective language would be tough, but if done, it would work out phenomenally well. When I casted a few games for ZDDL last season, as well as watched live stream casts, I can tell you it adds a completely different element to the game. I've listend to Nero cast before and he's got the typical Brit voice that pronounces every word, syllable and letter down to it's tee. It was pretty good. It's nice to have someone to call the action while having a more experienced player analyzing whats taking place along-side him, but he's gotta' be quick and have a good voice! Best of luck though, I hope you guys can get the ball rolling on this.
