1 News / Summer 2020 WDL Champions - Best Ever
« on: August 11, 2020, 05:29:44 PM »
Congratulations to the new WDL Champions, Best Ever (RoSK1ng, Acc, Skullrush, TMD) on their hard fought 5-round victory over Tai's Only Fans in the DemonSphere Championship Classic X! The game has been considered one of the most exciting playoff games of all time. This is RoSK1ng's 2nd consecutive championship as a captain and first WDL title for Acc, Skullrush, and TMD. Full coverage of the game can be replayed below:

#3 Tai's Only Fans [TOF] (MAP08) @ #1 Best Ever [BST] (MAP14) - Gametime: Sun, Aug 9 @ 2:00PM EDT

WDL Summer 2020 / WDL Summer 2020 Homefield Selection
« on: July 06, 2020, 05:20:50 AM »
Teams will select their homefields for the playoffs. Teams will be picked in order opposite of the draft nomination order (observing trades). A map may only be picked once (e.g. a team picking later cannot select the same map as a team picking earlier).

1. GPS - MAP30
2. TBW - MAP09
3. DMS - MAP25
4. BQB - MAP22
5. SBR - MAP23
6. TOF - MAP08
7. SXP - MAP11
8. RIP - MAP20
9. BST - MAP14
10. SUC - MAP03

Now that we've had a chance to look at every team, here's how I see this week playing out.

Best Ever vs Demon SlayerS
The Demon SlayerS had a decent showing against TOF and were at least able to pick up a point in their loss. It appears that there is a making of a good team there. They have 4 capable players and I'd also love to see them find a way to get Dosu into the mix as well. They have time to build this season and hopefully they can pull it together for a playoff run.

Unfortunately, that feel good story doesn't start this week. As usual, the reigning champ RoSKing has put together a hell of a team and made quick work of his protege in the opening week. Greater challenges likely lie ahead for BST, but it won't be this week. DS will play formidably, but fall to BST.

BST 2-0

Sexual Panthers vs Steel Ball Runners
A juicy matchup between the Bones-led SXP and the Zakken-led SBR. SXP was able to secure a two round victory over a solid GPS squad in the opening week, while SBR fell to SUC.

Both teams have the tools here. SXP has the Bones/Dragon combo that has had a lot of success in the past. Tobi is a prospect that looks to be coming along. ShadowStalker is a great player that might see some action this week as well.

Zakken and Caution are two captain-level players that are looking to build more synergy as the season chugs along. Legion has been a mainstay on starting rosters for years at this point. SBR also recently picked up Fran from Free Agency so it'll be interesting to see if he gets any run.

Tough call. I think this will be a close game with randomness playing a big factor. SXP gets a close, hard fought win.

SXP 2-1

Ô Blésq Blom vs Giant Pea Shooters
This game ensures one thing - only one team can possibly finish this season with 0 points in the standings. Both teams suffered disappointing 2 round losses to start the season and have an opportunity to get back on track here.

There's no way around it, BQB was caught off guard and embarrassed in week 1. Yes, the team fell to BST in under 9 minutes. Is that the nail in the coffin? No, absolutely not. BQB has a rookie captain in Infer and he is surely going through the growing pains that many new captains do. Last week, he dealt with a major roster shakeup only 24 hours before the team's season opener. With a full week to work with Cartel and Starrk, I expect a much better showing.

On the other side of the map, Alt+Stab is one of the most tenured captains around. This is his 9th consecutive season as a captain so he understands when changes need to be made. Week 1 was turbulent. GPS is a team of 4 bonafide starters with large personalities - managing that is the key to success. SXP ran all over GPS in the first round of week 1 and then Stab changed to the XENZOA lineup for the second round. They came out of the gate up two flags but weren't able to hold SXP off for the entire round. Denzoa, Ghostkiller, and Xenaero are all strong players and Stab needs to figure out how to get them on the same page going forward. If he can, they will win. If he can't, this could be another cautionary tale of the "super team". I think they pull it together in the twilight hour and win in a close, 3-round game over BQB.

GPS 2-1

Tai's Only Fans vs Rip N Tear
Likely game of the week.

RIP was already part of what many onlookers considered an upset in week 1. The Boomstick Warriors handed RIP their first loss out of the gate. This was a surprise to many as RIP has been projected as the team to beat since the draft. Having watched this game back twice already, RIP did not play poorly but were simply overwhelmed by the offense of rookie Asriel. RIP is no joke - they're a team of highly competitive top level players and should be expected to get back on track.

However, they're going against TOF who has already been smashing teams (namely, mine) in practice. This map is practically built for TOF and they have a lot of experience on it. TOF was projected by many preseason prognosticators to be a middle of the pack team. If they lose this game, that could possibly hold true. Don't count on it though because TOF is winning this week's game with authority. In fact, they're going to win this game in two rounds and continue to shake up the league-wide expectations for this season.

RIP is going to make the playoffs with a nice seed and possibly go deep. They're going to be fine because they're simply too talented, experienced, and smart. But reality can be cruel: RIP is going to start the season 0-2. Lock of the week.

TOF 2-0

10 News / WDL Summer 2020 Sign-ups Open!
« on: May 29, 2020, 07:34:36 PM »
The WDL is BACK! The tenth season of the World Doom League is officially open for signups!

Signups will close Wednesday, June 10th, 2020.

Signups for the tenth WDL season are now open! Not only is this the 10th season, but also the 25th overall season of the combined IDL/WDL lineage. The first nine seasons were a huge success and we hope to continue that with our Summer 2020 season. If you'd like to be a part of the league, it's time to jump on over to the signup thread and put your name down.

If you are unfamiliar with the WDL, read on for more information.

What is the World Doom League?

The WDL is a 3-on-3 CTF league, played on Odamex, and built on tried and true competitive traditions. In the WDL, 4 man teams are built when captains take turns selecting players before the season through what is known as the "draft".

The WDL is currently projected to be composed of six to eight teams. These teams will compete in a "regular season" schedule that allows them to qualify for a playoff tournament, a concept you're surely familiar with if you follow any major professional sport organization. The regular season should last five weeks with an additional two weeks of playoff contention.

The WDL is currently an OPEN league. However, the league reserves the right to deny free agency to select players under certain conditions. Players from 5 continents and over a dozen countries have already played in the league. Those who show a proactive, vested interest in the the league, the game, and the community are most likely to be drafted onto teams.

How can I get involved?

That's simple!

The easiest way to get involved with the WDL is to play Private CTF. Private CTF, or "privs", are organized games of Capture the Flag played on private servers only available to members of the community. Don't worry though, you don't have to sign up for anything to play. All you have to do is visit us on Discord or Teamspeak and jump into a game!

The Discord information for the WDL is as follows:
Channel: WDL Discord

The Teamspeak information for the WDL is as follows:

Will I make it onto a WDL team?

While there is no guarantee that a new player will make it onto an WDL roster, dedication to the game and the apparent will to do well at it will take you a long way in the process of securing a roster spot. Even backups and free agents usually get an opportunity to play in WDL games. Some of CTFs brightest stars have come from stepping up when opportunity called.

Even if you do not secure a spot on a team through the WDL Draft, a continued interest often allows you an opportunity to play during the season by way of a "free agent signing". By receiving and accepting an invite, you are immediately a free agent and can be picked up onto any roster during the season. Some of the league's most notable players got their start like this.

How does the WDL benefit me?

Although some free agents may not make it onto a team, being involved in the WDL community has its benefits. Aside from playing with some of the best CTF players in the world daily, by means of private CTF or WDL league activity, many great friendships have been born out of past endeavors (such as the WDL's predecessor, the IDL).

Leagues like the WDL and IDL have gone a long way by uniting once rival doomers and turning them into respected opponents and, more importantly, close friends. The WDL scene can be daunting at first, and most players have to work for in-game recognition, but the bonds within the WDL are some of the closest I've ever seen with over 15+ years in the Doom Community.

So what are you waiting for? Check out the website and forums, and more importantly, come see us on IRC and get ready for the upcoming season!
