I do know one thing, what ever we decide I want NOTHING to do with Canadians.

Aww.... Someone's taking this a little personally.

Either way, there is a big difference between wanting to play on Team America and being forced to play on Team America (which is what your plan came very close to being). Under the system as I have proposed it, if a Scot is not comfortale competing with the English, they could essentially play as Team Scotland. If someone wanted to compete for Team Texas, they could. The big thing: It is their choice to do so.

Seriously? You want nothing to do with any of us because of the words of one of us? Since Doug's initial comment you've done nothing but trash talk all of us!

Again, so how did making your statement help in anyway. Saying you wanted to make it so you can pick where you represent would of been fine. You had to jab the US, again because it's the "IN" thing.

There is more to it then just this...same thing happened in an off topic thread....about Zombie Apocalypse. You guys do realize that we are just trying to organize a tournament....not change your beliefs or make you love America. Honestly I'm upset cause it wasn't called for. I think less of you two because of your narrow minded comments. I'm done discussing this on here. PM if you want to discuss some more.

Wow. I never knew voting for a tournament type would turn into such a dramatic and argumentative discussion.

It's hopefully out of the thread now, time to get back to brainstorming

EDIT: For the record, I've got nothing against the US, or playing in a collective tournament with US members, I just don't want this grouped up into some big thing of only 2 teams (NA vs EU)

Exactly. I have no idea when this went from playful banter about different teams to taking offense and actually hating on another country and its people. I don't really wanted to be associated with other Ambassadors that harbor hate against a country or a group of people.

Never assumed you did The more teams the better. Canada and U.S. should be separate and that's that.

I'm sure no one meant any harm in arguing over their countries and everything. So long as there's no thoughts or discussions of "we're genuinely better than your country and therefore we don't want to play with or against you" then we're fine.

Agreed. A thing or two that I said either has or will hopefully be settled privately with someone... I'm sorry if anyone took offense to anything I said, please let me know (specifically and privately) so it can be learned from and avoided in the future.

I hope none of my food comments offended you xhunterrrr

I wake up and this is the first sensible post of all those 20 posts you guys made during the time I was gone...

I could go on and delete all of those trash talk posts but I'm just too tired at the moment.

On topic: Teams by time zone would be good, but then again when 2 teams are competing they are still from different time zones and the difference can be anywhere from 2 hours to 10 hours. It would also take away the idea of Olympics where at least I think it's people competing for their country.

Maybe the best idea would be actually to open up a sign-up thread and see how many people we get and from how many countries/time zones/continents and then make the decision on how to divide them in teams.

Of course you might end up in a team with someone who you don't like (referring to this Canada-US argument) but then again I don't think every athlete in the real Olympics like each other who are competing for the same country.

Disliking someone on your team brings down your chemistry though (thanks NHL games for this term) but isn't that what teamwork is for? Getting along with people and try to work together for the best outcome.

Please no more trash talking. At least on the public side.

Jappe. A bigger problem than time zones would be connection. You can't play Cod if the host is on the opposite side of the world.

How about I host the matches so everyone has the same latency?

Wouldn't that create even more of a problem when dealing with different time zones? With you needing to host, we could end up dealing with Australian time, North American times, and European times all at once.

Yeah that was a part of a joke maybe we could come up with someone who has the best connections and they would host it.

If everyone is not happy with that we could change the host to other continent during the match if the other team still feels that the others have host advantage.

Mostly when I was still playing Cod with my friends we owned everyone even though we had yellow connection

wow...this sounds like a logistics nightmare. Hopefully you can figure out something without it being such a pain in the rear-end.

Whatever you decide, since I was acting like such a baby over the weekend I wont be allowed to complain.

I don't understand your attitude. We are all here to have fun, be a noticeable part of the X360A community, and represent the site to attract more people.

As for hosting, my loving Time Warner Cable internet could host everyone. I don't mind. I do enjoy host advantage.

Oh no...now an American v. American fight might break out Guys...just let each other be.

Anywho, I have great connection so if we're looking for "candidates" who could host, I could be considered.

Anywho, I have great connection so if we're looking for "candidates" who could host, I could be considered.
I am not starting a fight or wanting one.

And if you host, then how will I have my host advantage. I'm not good enough to win without it.

No issues here. Lets move on.

It's pretty safe to say that if there would be hosting...it would by a neutral host. In a game like Call of Duty doesn't it randomly assign host? Can't we just let the game decide who is host?

I think some games try to find the best host (or so they tell us) In my experience the lag issues only happen when people drop in and out. I've hosted games with people from NA and Europe and have had no problems until new people started joining.

If there were only a small group of us and we were in a private match, hopefully connection won't be a major issue.

I think that's true.

There seems to be a lot more complications about this tournament than we had initially accounted for

I thought the matches are being played in Private matches where the host is the guy who you decide it to be. I don't know how a tournament game could be played on the Public side

Dedicated servers would be best but does CoD have them? No.

One positive thing about submitting a high score in a game instead of online versus is that there is no lag and everyone has equal chances to win.

Does anyone know how this kind of tournaments have been held before? Like the Subscribers Cod 4 tourney?

I wasn't around yet when that happened.

I wasn't a subscriber back then but I occasionally sat on the sidelines and watched

The larger games like COD and GTA would have a set time limit eg 10 minutes, then whoever came 1st would win. The smaller rooms like UNO were set up so that the winner or top 2 of each round progressed to the next. I don't think the smaller ones had staff sitting in on the game but relied more on everyone being honest and the winner would sign their name in the thread to let the staff know they had won.

I guess it all comes down to how many people sign up/show up as to how each game is set up. If enough people show up for a game like COD then you may need to have 2 matches, then the top half of each go into a final?
