We would love to play in this tournament, but it is hard to keep scheduling for an all day event when the dates keep getting pushed back. If keys expiring are a problem, you can preorder the game and have unlimited beta.
It's a shame you guys didn't contact me, I could have helped out with the server issue. I've also spoken to griffin, who would be willing to help set up servers. Just let me know - [email protected]
Weeknights da best
Two weekends in a row now it gets pushed back, i get that there are issues servers,keys and stuff but now theirs at least 7-8 teams that are saying they wont be Taking off work / canceling other plans. Again i understand stuff happens but its things like this that hurt the games future with player support and your brand as well.
I will give you the server issues in this game right now are a pain but there has been time to get everything setup and admins should have learned about it before now.
All i ask is please spend this week getting things setup before Sunday comes around so that the teams that are putting the time in to show up and ready to play are not again punished. Unfortunately my team and myself will not be able to put in for another Sunday off for the 3rd week in a row. And i know the PMS Girls will not be able to play next weekend either...
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused players who actually bought the game. We want to run the best possible tournament for you that we can. As such, moving the event is the best course of action. We not only had to consider making sure players and teams were capable of participating, but due to the change in the beta of Shootmania, we had to make sure admins, casters, server providers, etc all had the needed access to the event to make sure it ran well. The largest issue was with regards to servers. I was told by the developer that the server provider needed to have a purchased license to be able to launch the servers and not simply the beta key we originally provided. This caused an unforeseen delay. We were approached with being provided servers by participants in the tournament, and we appreciate the offer, however, we had no methods of quality control to ensure servers were set properly, specs werent allowed, etc.
We will absolutely be hosting this event in the near future and we are also in the process of planning additional Shootmania events to take place shortly after this inaugural.
If you have any questions or comments feel free to respond.
Again, we apologize but we feel this is the best course of action.
Exactly. The committed teams bought the game and anticipated this key expiration situation happening. By delaying it they are disregarding the players who really wanted to play in it and planned ahead for it. People made plans to be available at this time for the tournament and they delayed it at the last possible second.
