  Nations Cup Question? Are there fans out there? Mon, 16 October 2006 11:08
Hi

I wonder for a while if a lot of players are following the Nations Cup WITHOUT being involved as a team member. As we have more teams and more players per team, the whole top 100 seems to be involved and a lot of lower ranked players too.

Ich wundere mich seit einiger Zeit, ob auch Spieler, die nicht selbst am NC teilnehmen, den NC verfolgen. Immerhin spielen dieses Jahr nahezu alle Top 100 Spieler und auch viele niedriger gerankte Spieler.

Now my questions for FANS! NC-Players can answer too but please mark that you are involved! Smile I give a few answers as an example.

Nun meine Fragen für FANS! NC-Spieler können auch antworten, sollten aber markieren, daß sie mitspielen. Ich gebe selbst mal ein paar Antworten als Beispiel.

1. How high would you describe your interest in NC? (-10 to +10)
Wie hoch würdest du deine Interesse am NC einschätzen? (-10 bis +10)

erps: +10

2. How many games of a round do you watch?
Wie viele Spiele einer Runde schaust du dir an?

erps: 60% to 80%

3. Do you have a favorite team? (If yes, you are free to name it)
Hast du eine Lieblingsmannschaft? Welche?

erps: Of course my team, but otherwise: TEAM OLE

4. Do you have a favorite player? (If yes, you are free to name her/him)
Hast du eine/n Lieblingsspieler/in? Welche/n?

erps: You bet! Smile From my team womble and of course Peter De Zeeuw, Anu, Bassie, Mudda and SKM.

5. Do you watch all or most of your favorite team/player matches?
Schaust du alle oder die meisten Spieler deiner Favoriten?

erps: If possible all.

6. Do you think the NC is really a "national" competition and is raising some national spirit in you?
Glaubst du, daß der NC tatsächlich ein Nationenwettbewerb ist und verspürst du eine Art Nationalstolz?

erps: I see it more as a team competition but there is a lot of "national" spice between some teams. Good Smile

7. Do you read all or most NC related threads in the forum?
Liest du alle oder die meisten NC threads im Forum?

erps: Reading? I am opening them!

8. How do you compare your interest in NC with your interest of this years soccer world championship games (or a similar sport event you are interested in like Football Super Bowl)? (Make this alternative event a Zero and give from -10 to +10 points for NC)
Wie würdest du dein Interesse am NC mit deinem Interesse an der diesjährigen Fußball-WM vergleichen (oder einem anderen dich interessierenden Sportereignis)? Gib diesem Ereignis eine Null und vergib dann -10 bis +10 für den NC.

erps: NC +5

9. Is this years NC an appeal for you to improve your game play and your ELO-rating?
Ist dieser NC für dich ein Anreiz dein Spiel und deinen ELO-Wert zu verbessern?

erps: Of course!

10. Are you planning to play the next years NC? And why?
Planst du am nächsten NC teilzunehmen? Und warum?

erps: yes, but it's a year away... Nobody knows what's happening in a year. Why? Because it's great fun and i love tournament games!

Hi
the most interesting threads are opened by ... erps Smile

1. +5

2. I log in for playing, but if there are NC-games I watch them instead of playing ... and I enjoy the cheering in the lobby - great team sprit!
(Question to DoW: is it possible to extract from the logfiles the minutes players are watching during "NC-nights" and compare them with "usual" nights?)

3. No - see 4.

4. I prefer watching games with players I already know and I have played with. And I keep my fingers crossed for the one playing with green (my favorite colour Very Happy ).

5. I watch incidentally only.

6. The NC is great (Thanks, Bassie!). It started last year with national teams and of course DoW. A transnational team should be an option. I like the idea of bi-national teams like this year FINg-ShUI. But in my opinion, if there is a team of his nationality, a player should not be allowed to join another team.
This year it seems to be more a team competion, where the players forming a team did know each other before - and it creates the same spirit in the lobby! Smile

7. I read most of the NC related threads in the forum - and almost the website of Shamogi (Thanks!)

8. +5 (I don't like soccer, but the world championship was fun!)

9. No. Regardless of any tournament - my aim is to reach 1600+ ... and stay there for more than two games ...

10. Presumably not. I am not very good at tournaments.

Have fun

Hi

Great! So it seems the NC has ONE (1) Fan out there... Crying or Very Sad

-> no press, no television, no price money, no sponsoring, no ads for the top players, no groupies

I think i should start playing Counter Strike. I heard there is a lot of money involved Cool

bye, erps

Nations Cup Questionnaire - Answers Wed, 18 October 2006 15:22
Nice thread. I'm a NC player but also a fan of the tournament, so I'll answer these questions too.

1. How high would you describe your interest in NC? (-10 to +10)
I'd say 7. Is there a difference between giving it all and not being fanatic?

2. How many games of a round do you watch?
I usually watch the games afterwards through Erps' website, the clashes between players I think are interesting or to study my opponents.

3. Do you have a favorite team? (If yes, you are free to name it)
Catalunya, the surprise of the tournament.

4. Do you have a favorite player? (If yes, you are free to name her/him)
There are too many players that I like and love to see in railroad combat. So to keep it short I'll just stick to my own team, Rail Barons, and pick Koel Player, Rick27707 and Corflu. I'd pick them all, but these players in particular have grown a lot throughout the tournament.

(Thanks Erps, for mentioning me as one of your favorite players. Sorry I've been so disappointing so far. Embarassed)

5. Do you watch all or most of your favorite team/player matches?
Unfortunately I can't always, so that's where Erps' handy recordings come in so I can watch them afterwards. Smile

6. Do you think the NC is really a "national" competition and is raising some national spirit in you?
A little, but not much. Anyway, I'm a Dutch mercenary now playing for an American team with two native Belgiums in it and a Philippina. So, uhhh... I just want to play and beat other high ranked players.

7. Do you read all or most NC related threads in the forum?
I cast a quick glance at them. Something people really write too much. I'd rather play.

8. How do you compare your interest in NC with your interest of this years soccer world championship games (or a similar sport event you are interested in like Football Super Bowl)? (Make this alternative event a Zero and give from -10 to +10 points for NC)
4.

9. Is this years NC an appeal for you to improve your game play and your ELO-rating?
Of course!

10. Are you planning to play the next years NC? And why?
If someone wants me in their team, sure. And why? Because I like tournaments and take down big names.

I'm a bad man. Smug

D.I.S.

Re:Nations Cup Question? Are there fans out there? Mon, 23 October 2006 16:02
Hey erps, hi all;

I'm also a nation cup fan - not an nc-player. I would try to answer your questions. Please don't look at my grammar. My time at school is long long ago and I need english hardly ever. I think, this is also a problem of many players of TTR, so they don't answer.

1. How high would you describe your interest in NC? (-10 to +10)
Wie hoch würdest du deine Interesse am NC einschätzen? (-10 bis +10)

+5

2. How many games of a round do you watch?
Wie viele Spiele einer Runde schaust du dir an?

I couldn't say. If I had time and the games are interesting..

3. Do you have a favorite team? (If yes, you are free to name it)
Hast du eine Lieblingsmannschaft? Welche?

No not really. Maybe Team OLE, because the cheering is great.

4. Do you have a favorite player? (If yes, you are free to name her/him)
Hast du eine/n Lieblingsspieler/in? Welche/n?

No.

5. Do you watch all or most of your favorite team/player matches?
Schaust du alle oder die meisten Spieler deiner Favoriten?

See 4. and 5.

6. Do you think the NC is really a "national" competition and is raising some national spirit in you?
Glaubst du, daß der NC tatsächlich ein Nationenwettbewerb ist und verspürst du eine Art Nationalstolz?

No, I think it's more a Team competion. For a national feeling I think there are too much german teams in the competion. I'm a German don't worry.

7. Do you read all or most NC related threads in the forum?
Liest du alle oder die meisten NC threads im Forum?

I try it, but my english!!!!!!!!!!

8. How do you compare your interest in NC with your interest of this years soccer world championship games (or a similar sport event you are interested in like Football Super Bowl)? (Make this alternative event a Zero and give from -10 to +10 points for NC)
Wie würdest du dein Interesse am NC mit deinem Interesse an der diesjährigen Fußball-WM vergleichen (oder einem anderen dich interessierenden Sportereignis)? Gib diesem Ereignis eine Null und vergib dann -10 bis +10 für den NC.

Hmh, I'm a big soccer fan. So I must say "0"

9. Is this years NC an appeal for you to improve your game play and your ELO-rating?
Ist dieser NC für dich ein Anreiz dein Spiel und deinen ELO-Wert zu verbessern?

No, I would improve my playing and my score, because I would play with the good players. The games against top players are more interesting. But the most of them dont play with lower ranked players.

10. Are you planning to play the next years NC? And why?
Planst du am nächsten NC teilzunehmen? Und warum?

Not really.

I wish you, all other players and fans further good games, good luck and FUN.

Bye
Bagetta
