Uh no it's not. "Perfect" is an exaggeration, but if there are things that most people realized instantly upon hearing of this tournament as common sense, you're damn right we can expect the organizers to have though of it already.

My point is, everyone involved in making this tournament happen is human, and humans make mistakes, a lot. You'd be surprised how different the game looks from the Developer end. I'm sure many of the Developers play the game on a regular basis, but I'm sure others don't. You see things a lot differently on the Developer end and unless you're actively playing the game, you'll miss things which players find obvious.

Again, I'm not saying they didn't make a mistake, I just think you should cut them some slack, seeing as this is their first attempt.

awesome thing! I think it's great that you are doing something like this. im curious to see where it goes...


side note; Ignore the idiots that only want to look for the negatives in this as opposed to looking at the positive of an event like this and what it could mean for future events.


I really hope this turns out to be a fun event!

Any update on this? We've already had our practice run today, so we won't be able to showcase it in a separate thread.

Like someone mentioned it earlier, some guilds/players are invited into closed PTS, how is that fair to the rest of the players? these players are fully geared almost in first week of release new stuff. They know tactics before is on Dulfy, bugs ect. how can you compare any other guild run to these? pointless to even try

They know the tactics bc. they made them by own. Dulfy just put the tactics into his guide wich they used for their kills.

Is there an update on the rules anywhere that I've missed, I only see two BW posts in this thread? We want to practice but it's hard to put our group together when we don't know the rules such as only taking one healer, tank in DPS gear, full stealthers etc.

Closed PTS doesn't have the final boss layouts, since they are changed a lot more frequently than on live. So a lot of tactics that may have worked on PTS do not work on live. In that case you even have a disadvantage, because you already got used to something "wrong" that you need to abandon before developing new tactics. Closed PTS is not the practicing ground for progression guilds like the open PTS for Dread OPs NiM was, though that's what a lot of people on the forum claim - mostly those who weren't there. Closed PTS is actually for working on the content/making the content work and assisting Devs doing that.

Hey folks,

I will cut right to the chase, we are cancelling our ESL Operation Victory competition. Our reason revolves around the Coratanni encounter. I know many of you raised concerns about the issues related to the encounter, and we agree.

We spent a lot of time this week testing bug fixes to see how viable the fixed version would be in a speed running environment. We have applied improvements to the Coratanni encounter as of tomorrow’s patch but there are still situations that could impact players focused on a timed run.

We thank you for your feedback around the contest and should we decide to do something like this in the future, we will let you know. Also, let us know your feedback on the concept of doing a speedrun contest. As we explore options like this in the future it would be great to know your thoughts.
