Favorite builder and why: Gnoll, his poison towers, ranged hunter, strong walls and his wards are extremely powerful and fun to play with.
Favorite titan and why: Glacious, Bone chill is extremely powerful, he has a good windwalk and can learn his nuke early.
Usual playing time: 5:30 to 11:00 EST
What version of Island Defense was your first?  2.7.4
Do you have inhouse experience? If so, with whom? Yes, with IDG and other random PUGS
Do you know anybody in IDG (well, not meeting them the night before.) Yes, I know .... and .....
Game 1 (Builder) time: I can play at 7:00 EST, February 9.
Game 2 (Titan) time: After builder
Do you mind if we put your replays on this page as an example?You can if you want to.

Miscellaneous stuff you must know:

All games will be played on 3.0.6G4, or the current version, using Game, IDG-H0ST or the IDC bot.

Your game must be with myself or nuKKaH and all IDG and other forum members are welcome to come. (And if you are in IDG and wish to help recruit, post here so I know. If I am not in the game, send me the replay(s) and your opinions of the person's attitude and abilities over these forums in a private message)

You may apply as many times as you want, but if you don't show significant improvement between applications, then future requests will be ignored. If you break any rules and continue to after warning, or you are found to be maphacking or anything of the sort, you will be denied future applications and/or you will be banned from the IDG channel and IDG games. You may be asked to play multiple titan or builder games if the game before did not provide enough information about your playing abilities. You will be expected to know how to play several titans and several builders if not all of them. Ultimate decision for if your whether or not you are accepted rests in myself and nuKKaH. Please give us several days (2 or more) notice when applying so we can plan on attending your builder and titan game. You may not be accepted immediately if we are reviewing the replay.

We will not allow you to play worse by claiming lag or anything of the sort unless it is the fault of the host. If you lag that day, then play your best. If you are denied, apply again when your connection is better.

You may be denied to join based on attitude as well.

If we get enough players (8 or more players that are not pubs), we will transfer the game to inhouse rules. For IDG, inhouse rules are:
2 players maximum to a base. If one builder is escaping and teleports to the base, they must leave immediately.
-EXP -RD
Game ends at 90 minutes and nobody wins.
No teamkilling or attempting to hurt your teammates in any way.
It is highly recommended, although not required that you take control of minions and share control with the dead players. This can allow those players to assist you in the game.
When you die as a minion, you are to assist the titan in any way you can and the titan is allowed to take control of your units and force you to buy them items with gold.

Schedule: (TEMPORARILY ON US WEST, MEET IN "CLAN TRA" CHANNEL, BACKUP CHANNEL IS "IDG TRYOUTS")
None.

Replays: Here will be past games that will provide a good example of what level of play we expect from you. We do not expect you to be amazing by any means, but you must know how to play well and not expect us to teach you everything.

Placeholder game with me as titan until a better example rises:  http://www.mediafire.com/?f522jmi8cdi6czd

Friday: 5:00 EST for Myth

7:00 EST 13r4ndon

Saturday: 3:00 EST for theholysmighter

When confirmed I will edit the main post with these times. All forum members are welcome to come.

Er, actually, can we do the games on the USWest server? My IP is apparently restricted from East for something. (Stealing the airport's internet has drawbacks) They won't tell me what it was for and all I can find is a list of possible causes.


Title: Re: IDG Tryouts Thread
Post by: Ryld on February 15, 2011, 08:44:50 PM
This is a surprising amount of recruits. Very nice I'll have to advertise to the good pubs see if IDG can be revived again


Title: Re: IDG Tryouts Thread
Post by: Aflacduck on February 15, 2011, 08:52:51 PM
That's my hope, whether it is in vain or not.
 
For those of you who wish to attend these games, since my USEAST logging-on abilities are temporarily gone, meet in the Clan TRA channel on USWEST at the times of the games. If, for whatever reason, the Clan TRA channel is down, then meet in a channel titled "idg tryouts"

Can I move your games to 7:00? I want to keep a 2 hour window between games in case we have to do more than one game (very likely since we may not have enough people for an inhouse, and judging skill in a pub is difficult.)



Also: I recommend that you guys play games before your tryout and you join the other tryoutee's games to see what we expect as far as skill.

Favorite Builder
Goblin. I think it's one of the most funny builders from ID. Panic and Trap are very powerful abilities, especially when used at the right moment. Also, a flying Hunter is good in any kind of base. It's a builder which a lot of different gameplay styles.

Favorite Titan
Lucidious. Doesn't require any pearl, giving a 15g plus (Webbed Feet + Ward of Healing usually). Pretty balanced the whole game which good items. Also the bouncing Nuke gives an advantage when breaking a base by brute force is some sort of impossible.

Usual Playing Time
05:00 to 10:00 Battle.Net time. Also available the whole weekend.

What Version Of Island Defense Was Your First?
I do not really remember the number, but I know it was the map with two builders (Murloc and Gnoll) fighting the titan (Lucidious). At that time I remember harvesting gold by hitting and eventually killing the mound unlike these versions.

Do You Have Inhouse Experience? If So, With Whom?
I've played a quite big number of IHs, mostly on Europe, with the few ID clans left: UNI, StiD, CoA (Dead Now). Also played two inhouses on USWest against Clan PAID as Titan.

Testing Games
Well, I'd really apreciate if the games would be during the weekend. During the week I'm pretty busy (school ending soon, preparations for trip and so on). At any hour.

Do You Mind If We Put Your Replays On This Page As An Example?
Sure. Go for it.

Best Regards.
