Source: JJ2WC

Another successful JJ2WC season is coming to an end. All this time I’ve been careful with words, but I think it’s late enough to be able to say that this has been the most professional, well organized season ever. Not only the game got technically improved with Blur’s JJ2+ addon, but even the newest, most novice clans showed a lot of professionality by showing up to every game. And just for those who haven’t been involved with the competitive clan scene in the last few years – while I say “novice”, they would’ve still kicked most old clans’ asses.

This evening at 21:00 CET, -t3> and CC will face each other for the 2nd and last semi final game of this season. The winner will play vs. [GpW] in the grand final next weekend, whereas the losing clan will have to face RL for the honorary 3rd place. All matches will be broadcasted at JJ.net’s JJ2TV and for hardcore JJ2’ers, closely followed at our IRC channel.

EDIT: CC defeated -t3> by 6-2, which leads to another clash between the two most veteran clans of the game, this time at the grand-final. The Superclasico with [GpW] will be played next Saturday, so stay tuned!

The nominations are over, and voting has begun. Anyone may vote, and you may vote for one item in each category. Details (and the nominees) are in the thread.

If you don’t have a JCF account for some reason, you can PM me your votes on J2O. Same rules apply as in the thread.

With the recent downtime, the voting time might take longer as there are still people who can’t access J2O. The definitive end date will be announced later.

 

Permalink Recent downtime January 4th 2011

What’s a better way to start the year than with a few days of downtime?

I can think of a lot of things, but unfortunately we didn’t really have a choice – for whatever reason our web host’s DNS server went kaboom coindentally with the fireworks and most of you weren’t able to reach Jazz2Online during the past two days.

Anyway, it looks like everything works again. Our apologies for the inconvenience. Let’s hope the site works flawlessly for the rest of 2011 – the year of the rabbit, by the way!
