What are our Community 5v5s?
Our bi-weekly 5v5s are an opportunity to play a structured 5v5 with and against other members of the community. There will be two scheduled matches per night. The matches will run similar to an ESEA or ESL match, playing a best-of-thirty match with team communication and competitive rules. Teams will be set by the head admin before the first match, and may be altered if needed for the second match.

Feel free to join our mumble during the event. While not required, many of us do join mumble to facilitate communication. We do not use discord for voice chat during the event.

Rules
There are a few rules to help these events run more smoothly:
  1. Community members interested in playing, please sign up in Google Docs, so we have a list.
    • The first ten players to sign up will have priority, but if ten are already signed up, please include your name anyway! If somebody doesn't show up you'll be invited.
    • If you no-show one week, you'll have low priority next time.
    • If we do not have ten players within 15 minutes of the scheduled start time, the event will be canceled.
  2. This is a competitive setting. Please treat it with the appropriate level of decorum, or you will not be invited back.
  3. This event is open to players of all skill levels. Players of low skill levels are still expected to try their best and be a positive, competitive team member. Players of high skill levels are expected to be respectful and not flame anybody for any reason.
  4. All of our server rules still apply. Expect to be banned from our servers if you break these rules.

Current list of no-shows or leavers (These users will be given lower priority if we have more than 10 people sign up for a given day.)

I have created sign ups for this next "season" of our community 5v5's. I tried to do it bi-weekly but accidentally got my dates mixed up once and so it's not quite bi-weekly.

Feel free to sign up for any and all events!

We've only had three clan members sign up. I was hoping that switching it to every other week would make clan members feel more inclined to participate, since it's not quite as big of a commitment. This is our first one tomorrow, and we already have a community member signed up who has never played with us. This is a good opportunity for outreach, and it looks really bad if even our own clan members don't feel like participating.

Remember, being a clan member is a responsibility. I understand if you can't, but please make an effort to participate in these.

I only can't play some days due to team, but I hope I can make time. I really would like to play in them.

We were thinking of maybe moving some of them to, say, 2pm on Saturdays to help try to accommodate your schedule a bit.

Ok maybe we'll schedule the next one at that time. I don't want to change this one since several have already signed up.

Tonight we had streams for both the girls' and boys' sides, since we had enough sign up. Here's a view from the ladies' end. Hype has the other stream from the boys' side.

How do you put letters in people's circles on the radar?

I've reworked the map pool for the next match. Now, instead of just picking two maps, you'll pick one map in two different groups. The first map you'll pick has more "regular" maps, and the second map will have some lesser played maps. Hopefully this will provide a good balance between the people who prefer to only play the same maps, and the people who prefer some variety.
