AJSA COMPETITIVE TEAMS - READ

76 posts in this topic

Hello there and welcome everyone to this forum thread! This thread will be detailing the current plans for the COMPETITIVE TEAMS of the Angry Army and what you can expect in the future!

 

First of all for those of you who do not know me, I am Delrith! I am a decently talented player that was brought on to assist with running the AJSA community and managing the competitive aspects of it in the future. For those of you who are new here, welcome!

 

Now a lot of questions and messages have been sent to me over the past week asking a multitude of questions revolving around this subject. So I figure the best way to start is to answer the ones that were asked the most in this forum thread, then elaborate on things I want to afterwards.

 

  • Q: What games are we going to be going competitive into soon, or in the near future?
  • A: Well, as of right now we have major plans for Battlefield 4, as well as a few other FPSes that will be coming out in the future. We have plans for Star Citizen, TESO, and a few other MMO's.. but those are TBA and we have not decided on whether or not we'll be fielding actual 'teams'.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Q: What do you do to get invited into a competitive team for the AJSA community?
  • A: You go through a screening process. People who believe that they are *exceptional* or *amazing* at a certain game, like Battlefield 4, send me a message personally through my inbox and I set time aside to evaluate them. This process requires a good amount of time as I have to go through stats, watch you play, and play with you myself.. as well as conduct an IN-TS3 interview with experience.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Q: When I send you a message about being apart of a competitive team, what should I include?
  • A: The best thing for you to include is experience. I need to know if you have experience playing with teams, participating in tournaments, winning tournaments/events, or management of any of those categories. I need to know if you're great with strategy or tactics as well, as that is an important role.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Q: What happens if you're accepted into the competitive team for a certain game?
  • A: Your team manager (Competitive) for that certain game will be setting a strict schedule and guidelines for what you're required to do. This will include set training days, set meetings, and strategy discussion with the other players on the team. This will be taken EXTREMELY seriously, as in the future there's a chance that teams will be paid for to participate in-person at events. Joe must not be disappointed!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Q: What if I have a great team already with a record and I want to bring them over to compete for AJSA in games that are not necessarily on the radar for competitive tournaments?
  • A: You need to contact me with your team, the team's history, the names of each individual player (So I can check records) and their history as well listed in the message. If it's a game worth investing into and something that would help further the community there's a high chance you'll be pulled aside and spoken to. THIS TEAM *MUST* HAVE PRIOR EXPERIENCE AND *MUST* SEND PROOF OF SAID EXPERIENCE BEING REAL.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Q: Will there be team jersey's, outfits, etc for players that are formally accepted into a team?
  • A: Probably, but that's not confirmed right now. If a serious amount of money begins to get offered in a game and the team in question proves itself to be reliable/competent it's entirely a possibility.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Q: Does anyone have a chance to 'try out' for a competitive team here at AJSA, say for Battlefield 4?
  • A: No, there's too many for me to go through 'every' person that sends me an application or simply wants to try out. I will be personally evaluating the stats of each individual before even contacting them based on history, performance, and time spent on said game.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Q: What are you looking for? Just pure talent in killing the enemy, or something else?
  • A: I will be looking for a range of players. Each time requires an extremely balanced build of individuals that WORK WELL TOGETHER and act as one. This includes killers, support players, strategists, etc. A team will be comprised of all of those, with a few more killers then anything else.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now take in mind we have not formally formed any of these teams yet! This topic is simply being posted to allow you to start messaging me with your applications and for you to post questions here that were not answered.

 

Anything and everything is subject to change based on what Joe wants and this was simply a courtesy being extended to all you fine people at the AJSA community!

 

Just keep in mind that I HAVE TO TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY, and do not look down on me if I deny your application or cannot accept you into a team. I have to be selective in every aspect, as the players chosen will be representing not only the AJSA but Joe himself, and that's important!

 

Thanks!

 

-Delrith

 

P.S - Ask questions in this thread  and I will update the post responding to them.

Will players be paid for their time once officially on the team, not just for going to some events? I know that it isn't easy to adjust one's schedule to meet strict practice schedules especially if they lose money doing do.

This could be problematic when it comes to make a Team with Players from different Countries and Timezones. So scheduling Trainings, Tournaments and Meetings with them could be as hard as biting a chunk of steel. No offense.

I have a question sir, Fighting games are included? Currently there are a few of them in Steam... And in the future will be more (like Tekken). The professional scene in fighting games is really developed.

Any idea if Cs go will have its Comp div ?

This ^^^ 

 

A great place to start for competitive teams especially for shooters is CS. It already has a strong competitive environment, probably the strongest amongst FPS games, and has many ladders and leagues to enter to get an idea of where AJSA would stand in a competitive environment. It might take a while for BF4 to get going in the competitive scene so i think including CS would be a good start

Id say for the army there should be at minimal eteams for

Starcraft 2

League of legends

Dota 2

Counter strike global offensive

If we can get talented players for these games then we would have a strong start on the e-sport scene and an influx of members to join.

I say whatever gets more publicity for the army is good to have.

I have some questions! I hope you answer them as many are very good ones. 

1. Will there be a certain minimum age to be on a team or is skill (In any of the fields you mentioned) a priority? 

2. How strict will the schedules be, as many people have a job or go to school. Will practice days/times be more flexible toward the teams needs and will unforeseen accidents/emergencies be tolerated as a cause for missing a practice/game? 

3. Do you have a basic idea of what FPS games will be added to the list so players who wish to join these teams know which games to practice?

4. Approximately how much time would practices/games take, because if I were to be accepted into one of these future teams I would have to adjust my schedule accordingly, but I wouldn't be able to see if I would be able to fit such a commitment into my day-to-day schedule without knowing how long they would take?
