Players competing from the same IP will not be a problem, so far as I'm aware. Once the IP's authorised, any connections from it should be fine.
Hope that quote thing works.All leagues will eventually charge, and not to far into the future, Jolt already charge for their tourneys, BY gaming was setup to be p2p from the start and will be soon. Mark my words.

lol everyone says that
I'm an old school internet user - we never used to have quote buttons
Indeed, this is why I doubt the BWCSL will be that successful next season - it's too expensive.Originally posted by bsvarups
Anyway. Jolt only charges £10 per league PER CLAN.

LOL I've been suggesting things like the ideas Skyler and others have suggested to the admins in the private admin channel. I think the league is the way to achieve the prestige and the interest BW has been needing in CS. Ultimately it could actually be a way to take the gaming community by the horns and make it unthinkable for a self-respecting CS player NOT to have a BW subscription. Note for example that www.ukterrorist.com shadow the BWCSL with a great deal of interest already - they know it's the best league going and that the admins actually have, like, keyboards and mice and stuff. Many good players suffer quite badly in other leagues due to poor adminnning and frankly the standard of adminning in the BWCSL is high.
- so there is a strong basis there for positioning Barrysworld with a splendid advantage when this P2P movement takes place in the industry - as Ch3tan told us in an earlier post it is going to happen and soon. I think it would be wholly appropriate for Barrysworld to be out there with it's nose in front as this all takes off.
Some kind of model regarding clan subscriptions to the league would press home the 'pro' element one needs to emphasize in the image, to beat the competition. It is like saying: you can like gaming, that's fine, but Barrysworld is for the real thing, leagues, where honour is at stake, 'hardball' (as ukterrorist referred to the play of ClanOne). BW has the advantage of being the historical 'home' of UK CS traditionally and is the one service only lamers avoid. Surely no member of a top team would, once p2p is in place among all providers, feel it would be l337 to admit to having, say, a BY subscription for example.
What I think would be really silly would be to move straight into the next season with a full and full-price move to p2p in the league. There is a golden opportunity to entice players over to p2p directly through appealing to their status as a gamer.
Amen brother Ryo BW / BWCSL listen to what people are saying - we will gladly pay for a league that is well run (which i believe the BWCSL currently is) and offers value for money, however don't force us to go for a full sub we will probably never use outside clan matches anyway!Originally posted by -]K.M[-Ryo
Stop jibbering on about what a great deal it is - it's simply a crap idea. See sense offer an option to those wo are not full bw members to joint the damn leagues for a one off fee.

Well in SWANTs case having 5 subs for the whole clan would be cheap, but which members would use these accounts for bookables, publics etc out of league time?
Maybe 5 subs.. Maybe 6..7.. 8.. maybe 3...
I've no idea who would be playing next season..
To be honest, i dont think any of us would want to use bookables, or publics.. or any other BW facilities. If we did.. we'd already have BW subscriptions.
