Looking around and aiming on NHE tends to feel inconsistent from box to box, especially as the boxes get hotter. I’m pretty sure that’s why it’s not being used as of late.

Sometimes I wish we could agree on a value you need to win by on host in order for it to count as a win. Like if you get 45 kills off-host you technically win. Idk. Something to account for it.

I have the mod on my two boxes but never actually tried to play around with it, thanks for clarifying.  

I used to consider 30+ on xbc a “victory,” or if I hosted and won like 50-45 I knew I woulda got smoked on lan by the same person.

We used to just play two series on/off and off host would get the color advantage depending on the map.

Is there a stream schedule / event schedule out yet for Beach LAN? If not, do we know when and where one will be available?

I know that the tournament will be on Monday and Tuesday, and that other days will feature a set of hand-picked matches. I don't know the times yet though. I'll try to get those and post them here.

I've been very slowly watching through the Beach LAN bracket play VoDs and made it up to the point where Hard Way, Bo, and Meg realize that Legend/Skillz vs. McDick/J0wnz is a gauntlet. It looks like the past broadcasts from that day and previous days are no longer available on Twitch. Anyone know if it'll find it's way onto YouTube or if it won't since it was only the pseudo finals?

And how did prize payouts end up working? Watching through the archive it felt that everyone was as uncertain as me as to what the stakes were in each match after the long delay.

 

(Also, thanks to the Bean LAN team for putting on another great show. Would love to see a pure 1v1 tournament with semis and finals broadcast at some point, I think that would be fun to watch)

Dman is normally pretty reliable about getting this stuff uploaded. I'll talk to him.

It's my understanding that top 4 got paid. I know UGC comped the hotel and team passes for at least top 2 at BL, and team passes for top 4.

I'd love to see that too. I was sad to hear that Legend and Patch basically refuse to play Wiz radar or Longest when I asked them about it (at least in friendlies), so it'd only be Priz. I'm sure they'd play the other two if that's what the TO set up though.
