I realize this is a relatively new forum, but I figured I should post this here since I already posted something along these lines in CR/D. 

 

The blessing and the curse of strongholds is that there is no queu. As a positive, that means that people won't look at queu, see there's nothing, then drop out. As a negative, it means that we have no way to gauge interest and determine when strongholds are starting.

 

I'd like to get organized strongholds going at certain times, which we can discuss as we try them out. I'd like to start with champions getting going at 6:30ET today and the better clans (and clans looking to improve and look at top clan strats) switching to absolutes at 8:30ET. I'm sure mediums will come along with champions and absolutes for the absolute beginner clans, but I can assure you all that if you'd like to improve you should really be playing champs and eventually be moving to absolutes. Tier six gameplay is simply too derpy and calling with 7 tanks is not adequate preparation for 15v15. Newer clans are going to want to start at the champion level if they're looking for coordinated gameplay, and then move up when they are comfortable.

 

Otter will have a champion in queue at 6:30ET. We expect others to as well. That means we should be starting at 6:20~6:25, forming up, and then getting in queu just before 6:30. I'm sure that pbkac and variety of other clans will be joining us, I'll see you guys in stronghold battles.

*Edit* It seems that champs have been starting earlier and earlier. I encourage clans that want to play champs to spend 10 minutes getting ready, and throw a team in queu. You never know when they're up. Teams seem to be transitioning to absos around 8:00-8:30 ET on schedule. 

 

*Edit #2* Total success guys! This is working out quite well keep it up.

 

*Edit #3* Absos are dead

That's a great idea.

*checks to make sure this isn't CR/D*

 

The top clans will be on so you can see what good players and tactics are.  And if we get enough of the rest of us, they'll be diluted and we can have some fun games ourselves.

 

Look forward to it.  Hope to see youse guyz tonight.  Just don't kick us from Teamspeak kthanx.

Good effort.  The more clans who join into this - clans of all different skill levels - the more enjoyable this mode will be.  If you're worried about the competition just remember that if you're willing to join then other clans of your skill level are probably willing to join too.  You probably joined a clan so you could get a better experience playing this game and this is probably the best platform WG has given us to accomplish that.

 

Buy into the format and your clan will gain from the experience.

Might be harder tonight - more people are going to be grinding for the LTP for the free gold.  Don't think Stronkhold counts for that.  Might see a drop off at 8 EST.

We might see that, although I really don't care about the gold. We'll start champs at 6:30 ET again and go from there.

How many clans a night are doing absos? Last night we saw -HT- once then Otter 3 times. We love fighting Otter, but I'd like to see a mix.

I'm not sure. I know we've seen RDDT, NRWL, RELIC, PBKAC, and BADGR as well as a couple smaller clans over the last two days. The good thing is that I can easily coordinate with Petco and Relic to move to absos, join us if you like we usually transition around 8:00-8:30.

Okay, I'll keep an eye on this post. We've only lost to 2 clans so far. Seen Havok, -G-, Forge, Bulba twice, -HT-,  and Otter 4 times. So at least its competitive.  Look forward to seeing you guys again.
