tl; dr: the first live broadcast for the 2014 Galactic Cup will be this Sunday at 8 pm CST on twitch.tv (audio + video) and mixlr (audio).
The qualifying rounds for the 2014 X-Wing Galactic Cup on Vassal have finished and the field of 144 players has been distilled down to a 46 point single player elimination tourney. The qualifying players include the current world champion, multiple national champions, many players from top 16 US Nationals and Worlds, various regional winners, etc, etc - in short, a fantastic collection of X-Wing talent ready to fight it out for the top prize in the biggest and toughest on-line X-Wing tournament to date!
Throughout the next month I'll be livecasting their matches on twitch.tv (video + audio) and mixlr (audio). Commentating will me will be some great X-Wing folks, including X-Wing's first world champion Doug Hothie, its second world champion Paul Heaver, the team from the Scum and Villainy podcast, and many others.
I'm thrilled to announce that the first match we'll be broadcasting is Texx versus Uncleho. Texx finished second in the 2013 World's tourney and will be representing the Imperials.
The match will begin this Sunday at 9 pm EST/8 pm CST/6 pm PST. There are a couple of ways you can watch the match and listen to the live commentary:
1) Vassal and Mixlr: If you've never used Vassal before, here's a guide from Mu0n that should help you get started. Once you've got Vassal up, you can head over to my Mixlr site ( http://mixlr.com/sozin ) and listen to the live commentary. Mixlr is basically just live internet audio; there is a 4-10 seconds of time lag between the live Vassal game and the audio broadcast.
2) Twitch.tv : If you don't want to bother with Vassal, you can just head over to my twitch.tv site ( http://www.twitch.tv/sozinsky ) for the full audio and video. There will be about a 10-15 time lag behind the actual game.
Please join us in celebrating this wonderful game of X-Wing in a live broadcast format!
