    (*): I have added players who have recently been active during ATs to a friendlist. Expect PMs from "Teaching Scrims Sun" around AT times for the upcoming days to remind you of Teaching Scrims. I will also PM you the day of Teaching Scrims, obviously. Sorry if it annoys you; if you don't wanna be pmmed you can just reply when you get a PM or tell me here and I will take you out of FL.

    Note: Scrimmages are usually held after C ATs on Saturdays and Sundays weekly.

    Introduction

    Since the GvG scene has been getting a bit less active lately, many players from the GvG scene have decided it is time that we should do something about this and make GvG more active. To accomplish this, we need to get more people interested in playing GvG. Since the gap between current playing teams and completely new teams is way too big, it will be necessary to teach the new players as much as we can to even up the playing field. The easiest way to do this is to talk with as many interested players as possible at designated times and to have organized scrimmages sessions where both experienced players and new players are mixed together into teams.

    Goal

    In order to accomplish this, we need to reach out to all the players left in the game, be it PvEer or casual PvPer and to make a list of IGNs of players that we can contact who are actually interested in making this happen.

    The plan

    We have already had a couple of very successful scrimmage sessions that both the new players and the more experienced players enjoyed (please check out the archived videos we made of the sessions at the bottom of this post). So far the scrimmage sessions have been during/after euro C-AT hours, but we are hoping to also get enough people interested so we can perhaps also make American A-At hours active again.
    We are also starting a mentor program, if interested have a look at the Mentor program thread. We are also opening up a new section on this forum dedicated to the scrims. If you want to have access to that, leave a message here or in the Mentor program thread, so we can add you.

    Organizers:

    Ska (Ska La)
    Momo (Wong Tai Li)
    Louise (Leila Of Langlar)
    Jorn (Mini Jorn)
    Athos (Daily Torment)
    Shisha (Strange Shisha)
    Killing (Sightless Faith)

    Any questions regarding this project(scrims) you can pm one of us.

    Amazing experience. Please come out as much as you can guys!

  5. THANKS !!!!!!

    Hope we will do more !!

  6. I think we had a great turnout and everyone had a good experience. We managed to get 5 scrimmages in with sometimes having almost 3 full teams ready to go.

    The next scrimmage time will be Wednesday 14th of October starting 1h after the start time of the AT (Check Tolkano for the actual time this is for you).

    We will have these for American hours too, lets see after Wednesday one. Perhaps @ Sunday, because monthly will be at this Saturday.

    Hey, if you scrimmed, I'd encourage you to check out the scrimmage streams (they're really good). It's really cool to hear and watch yourself in the matches. I'd recommend watching the matches for the comebacks!

  16. Great seeing the success of this. Makes me nostalgic over the days it was like this with hundreds of games going on.

  17. shout-out to you guys! stream looked and sounded interesting.
    makes me nostalgic toooo and at the same time a little sad that old times with ladder and so many teams cant be brought back. just yesterday saw that my oldest character turned 10 years. wtf.

    still best game. keep it up ;)
