    DOTA 2 fun tournament trial run this week - submit your team!

    DOTA 2 RPS Mini Tournament

    This thread is for a mini DOTA 2 tournament for a bit of fun over the next couple of weeks run for RPS readers in general and RPS' Casual DOTA Chums steam group (join us for daily chilled out games!). We're hoping to use this tournament as a trial run, learn from it and then help out everyone running the larger scale tournament later in February. At the top of this post is the current action and further down you can see the rules.

    Match History

    20/01/2013 Bulletin of the Atomic Scientist stood valiantly before the unstoppable might of Team Zoidberg and put up an excellent defence, most especially so when considered in light of the difference in number of matches played.

    19/01/2013 The almighty Team Zoidberg dominated poor old Team Clockwerk Orange with a rather scary score by the mid game! replay file here.

    17/01/2013 Team Clockwerk Orange beat down Team Building Materials through far superior team fight ability! We're actually rather bitter about this one. Darn that tidehunter ulti, grrr.

    16/01/2013 Team Cobra Cocks were just about beaten by Team Building Materials! Well played everyone. Wildcard stood in for Ace and played a brilliant Luna. We felt like we were losing at first but a stunning performance by Micro with Naga and a huge quantity of slow and stun managed to give us an edge after well placed ultimates from lich and dark seer turned the game around.

    12/01/2013 Team Zoidberg had an absolutely incredible match against Cobra Cocks! Some great teamplay secured a second victory for team Zoidberg! Replay file here and youtube videos cast by Hex and Fate.

    10/01/2013 Team Building Materials were crushed beneath the might of Team Zoidberg. Replay file here and youtube here.

    (Note: see the bottom of this post for instructions on opening the replay .dem files*)

    Matches

    - Get together a team of five and submit it on this thread. Late team entrants still accepted.
    - The teams arrange matches between themselves. Include your steam name in your team post so that other teams can contact you and arrange matches.
    - Post your match times here in advance so that spectators can join if they wish.
    - Post your match results in this thread afterwards.

    Rules

    - Game Mode: Captains Mode.
    - Handicapping: If one team is obviously more experienced than another then you are heavily encouraged to pick stupid characters and/or take a handicap in the name of fun.
    - Scoring: Whoever has the most points at the end wins. A win counts as 2 points and a loss counts as 1 point, therefore the more games you play the better. You are only allowed to play against each team once. I will keep up-to-date results of games in this post.
    - Player Swapping: In the name of balance and convenience you are allowed to swap out one player in your team as long as the other team agrees to the new player (this is for when, for example, one player is unable to make the match or for helping out if there is a big skill imbalance between teams).
    - Dates: For now you have until (oh sod it) the end of january.
    - Fun: If possible, try and get a mixture of ability levels in your team. No raging allowed. Enjoy yourselves!

    ------------

    I'm interested! Sounds like a nice way of bringing together more Casual Dota Chums, practicing playing as a team (I hear it's all the rage) and generally getting more games of Dota 2 happening.

    I would most definitely love to join you guys, I'm somewhat competent. My name is Maniac and I'm in the chums-group, so go ahead and add me and we can play a few matches to see if I'm a fit, if you'd be willing, anyway. In the case thats a no-go, I'm definitely looking for a team. I really only have two mates that play the game that I could play with, thus if anyone needs a fifth, I'm here to serve.

    Haha we've filled up the building materials team already I'm afraid! But dude, if you only have two people who you play with then come and play some games with the Chums! I've set up an event as part of the group so that people can create some teams at 7.30pm tonight (anyone else reading this is welcome to join the group / come on the mumble and see if we can get you set up with some teams). I will add you as a friend now and see if we can have some games together anyway.

    Dang, too bad. I was looking forward to calling myself Rusty Nail. Alas, I'll have to call myself that and sit in a corner all by myself. And I guess I'll join in, its just the normal "unofficial" RPS mumble channel, right?

    I would be interested in joining a team.
    I am probably about average skill but watch a lot of competetive dota.
    I would be fine joining either a team taking it seriously and trying to win or a team that just wants to have some fun.
    I could play any position although I have more experience in the carry position.
    I should be able to play any weekday 18-23 CET or on the weekends
    My steam name is mrmud

    Boys will be separated from men as Team Zoidberg attempts to claw through Team Building Materials' concrete defense.

    Stay tuned at 8PM GMT.

    I've just looked up your other players, I think we might be placed firmly in the boys section going by their number of matches
