About Renz: it's weird. He pm'ed me 15 minutes before Jon agreed to be my alt... That happened after I checked my team in, I think. Hope everything is fine with him, no force majeure involved.
Regarding the site itself (can comment on this, since I was managing the 'bureaucratic' part). Actually, I think the site works smoothly and is quite intuitive, for the most part. What I didn't like was the strange restricted navigation/double authorization system: separate logging in with the same login/pwd needed to enter JeeSports from JeeLounge. Moreover, after you log into JeeSports, it takes you to your lounge, even if the entry point was tournament's page.
Concerning Russian speaking players: I can post this guide separately + add more info, if Julia thinks there is much interest. I know that Akumrise and Drakon4ik, both very solid players, were interested, but couldn't make it because of family matters. Dreamcatcher wanted to play with EX-Sharigan, who was N/A for some reason, and Lols_SeaWolf was feeling he's not in tourney shape this time However, all these folks can read English just fine. I've advertised the tourney to every decent Russian-speaking (and non-Russian speaking) player I know, but most of them politely declined the offer due to short notice + time constraints.
What I think must be done next time to increase participation rate/smoothen rough edges:
(1) Fast strictly scheduled tourney is a great idea, as long as potential participants know WHEN EXACTLY it will happen. I know last moment decision regarding Sunday evening (my evening, that is) caught me a bit off guard with virtually no time to adapt to it or even to practice 2v2 with nnnils (which was a shame, since Kira/ppap were interested and online). Since mature people constitute the lion's share of this community, we should take into account the simple fact: real-life commitments (family, work, etc.) will always take precedence over DG, and the only way to mitigate this is by somewhat earlier notice. In other words, "either Fri evening or Sun noon" announced mid-week is not good enough and ultimately confusing. I suppose a tourney announced 10-14 days before it actually happens should be adequate.
(2) A convenient user's guide to JeeSports/JeeLounge must be published on the forums. It's frustrating enough trying to guide 3-4 people simultaneously via in-game pms. I assume Kira & Pacov should document the whole process, after which I shall be able to produce the Russian version of the guide.
