A proposition: great Battle for Wesnoth tournament?
I've had this idea before and mentioned it in our IRC channel, but also in this forum. Now I'm thinking maybe it may really be a good idea and would like to hear if anyone of you would seriously consider joining the effort (and fun). In most parts of the world it is summer now so some of you who may have not had much time for this could find some now. So it might be a good timing.
The idea is to organize a Battle for Wesnoth multiplayer tournament for all interested Nuxified.org members. We can compete individually or we can separate ourselves into teams. Then we can schedule battles at specific times and between specific parties. Battles times can be flexible, but all changes to the original schedules should be announced and everyone participating in a tournament should check frequently.
We can also make up a few guidelines for choosing proper maps for our battles to minimize any unfair competitions.
If there would be enough interest from you guys then we will go to the news sites with this inviting more interesting parties until a certain deadline date when we will structure teams if necessary.
For now, this is just an idea. If we go through with it, it could be a good way to promote Nuxified.org as well as Free Software because by going with it to news sites we can get to know alot more people in a fun way that may later stick with our community and because Battle For Wesnoth is a shining example of a game that is Free Software and working on GNU/Linux - it promotes the fact that GNU/Linux can well be a gaming platform as well.
So, anyone interested? Any thoughts? Suggestions? Let's hear you!
