Signups are open. I had to choose a definitive date for the wiki page. Went for the default date and will alter as the vote comes through.

Recordings for 0.2.9.1:

Running gag: I mistook kill_alls for new match starts and started new recordings in panic.

round1_deu_ta_vs_dump.aarec 36728kb 3321s
round1_dny_dumb_vs_para.aarec 22172kb 2242s

round2_dny_dump_vs_para.aarec 16612kb 1424s (continued below)
round2_kevinh_pbox_vs_ta.aarec 20312kb 2783s

Yep, happened here, this one is a mix of the rest of round 2 with round 3 you have to fast forward to 1800:

Disconnect at the end of part 1, for some reason I decided to start a new recording for the rest:
round3_z_dumb_vs_ta_part1.aarec 12452kb 1323s
round3_z_dumb_vs_ta_part2.aarec 3112kb 288s

round4_dny_pbox_vs_para.aarec 23324kb 2258s
Disconnect in between, this time I reconnected directly:
round4_kevinh_dumb_vs_dump.aarec 12576kb 1623s

For the final, I mistook some kill_all for the start and went off for bedtime story duty, so you now have to ff to 1350...
final_dny_dump_vs_ta_starts_at_1350.aarec 55544kb 4722s
When I came back to check, I was wondering what was taking so long and fell for another false restart cue. Err. So bonus, if you just want to watch the very end, you just have to watch this one here.

This is hilarious. When you're recording these matches, how often are you actively watching / multi-tasking / etc.?

Well, I have all of the recordings running at once (used to be worse, of course), so that's problem number one; I'm leaving the recordings running as untouched as possible, so I can't, for example, press tab to get a quick look at scores or who is on the field, so I have to rely on chat events mostly to judge when new games start. A chorus of 'gl, hf' usually is the surest sign, and 'gm's that it's over... or at least that used to be the case, now you lot already use that for the individual matches. I just let the recordings run on for a bit anyway after the end, so that's not a problem. But man, kill_all is my nemesis :) Because if it's really the sign of a game starting and the recording has been long enough to make a restart worthwhile, I have to react quickly. But no worries, I'll just judge whether a proper game is in process (easy to tell, someone will miss a proper start by chatting or goof off with silly mazes while it's not) and restart the recordings on a regular basis.
And no, usually I'm not actively watching, I'll be doing light work or video watching on the other monitor.

Don't lie to us like that, we know you're having watch parties and making side bets on these games :D
