Thanks Zydro! I was wondering what capture card you're using, since the HD60 only works through window capture on OBS for mac. It works well enough, but the frame rate would be better with direct input to OBS, which may be available with a different card.
I can help out with the chat moderating if needed. I've nodded a few back when I used to be more active with the speed running community. But good luck with the event. :) let me know if you want my help! Modded* won't let me edit my post :< stupid phone auto correct lol
Sorry Jett, looks like I won't be able to participate in your stream as we are in different pools. If you have any free time I'd be happy to play some matches before/after the pools battles :) whether its for stream or not.
Jett i recommend you don't bother trying to stream UQ because of the last minute rule change to 3 stock 6 mins, i personally believe these rules to be an embarrassment to smash in Australia and would rather people from overseas not look down on us
3 Stock 6 minutes will lead into alot of time outs for people willing to abuse it. I'd recommend either going 2 stock 7 minutes or running 3 with 9-10 mins. Would hate to see people win constantly on time out :<.
But yeah Its up to the tournament organiser after all and I'm not even attending, but just throwing the advice out there just incase :)
I talked to Lachlan and he said that he wanted to keep 2-stock 6-minute. But the committee saw that people wanted 3 stocks, but didn't want to increase the time for matches. He said if both players agree they can use an 8 minute timer in the pro singles winners bracket (providing time isn't scarce).
I know this isn't ideal, but I don't really want to abandon the stream for something as petty as a timer. However, the pro singles bracket is the only one where timeouts were really a problem and hopefully now it is not as much of a concern. On a related note, I very much agree that a higher timer is better can be even more efficient on time compared to a lower timer. Here's a great video explaining the matter:
