I can think of a handful of comparable effic players aside from Honzik1. We talked last night, and it's also likely he won't be able to attend.
With this map pool, I can think of at least four fine ffa duelists who could all duke it out for the final.
But I see you misunderstand why I ever hosted tournaments. It was not to provide a platform for people to win. That is an outcome, one largely dominated by two people in particular, but I structure and design it with different motives. I want people to be forced explore new modes and maps, and forced to think in different ways. I hope some of these get leeched into their everyday playing. It has largely failed, although I can think of a few eCTF maps that are more played now than before we introduced them into SSL, and more people willing to try pickup modes than before we ran those... By doing more new things, people can discover new ways to think and play situations. That will improve them as players, and I hope some people will take that outside of Sauer and become better people.
If you have no intention of playing, I hope you come watch.
@Obstriegel very nice obst!, love the idea of having effic as the game mode, its going to be an amazing experience for your average player that would most likely play insta as most currently servers are and will a provide a chance for them to play a different mode. All the best on the project!
