....Is back!

Format: Multi-mode; BALL/TBD/TDM.

Double elimination bracket.

Each matchup will consist of
1X 6v6 BALL

1X 5v5 TBD

1X 7v7 TDM with an 8:00 minute timer.*

*(teams can play 6v6 or 5v5 if one or both teams have less than 7, and if both teams agree.

*Teams that inflict a 3-0 victory on their opponent will receive a bonus point.


Date: Nov 17th

Roster cap: 10

Map pools: will be released shortly.

Servers: will be called Pwned!

Admins: VAN1SH1NG


Summary: The idea was to have an inclusive multi-mode 1 day tourney to attract as many players as possible. This format has never been done before but i feel that it has potential. Mixing up the modes keeps things interesting and gives players a chance to put many skills on show.

I capped the roster size at 10 to encourage more teams, if enough people feel this should be increased/decreased then please say so.

Also i'd appreciate some feedback from those who know the TDM and BALL maps better than I do to suggest the best ones to use.


=The teams=

KLF* Stars

Mild interest, you could postpone to give more teams time to organize :)

Would be a shame to see such a cool mini-tourney go to waste

Guys, you have to think bigger ! .. Word of mouth is golden, but we need social media advertising and youtube coverage .. Then we'll get angel investors to support us, do global tv campaigns and turn this into an event bigger than the Super Bowl and the Football World Cup ! :cool:

In 5 years, this alti turnament is all people are going to be talking about !

May be easier to just try to advertise the tournament in game and hope enough show up to play. Assuming there are enough that show, pick at least 2 teams right before tournament starts. I think people want to play and would show on a Sunday but not enough who will put in the effort to get a team ready prior to the tournament.

You should give it more time before making it into an on-the-spot team selection kind of thing. I am, for one, just starting to ask around if my friends are interested.

10-25-2013, 11:02 PM
Thanks for the comments guys =)

How about running it as a draft? There may well be a good number of people that will play that don't have or have no interest in joining a regular team.

Im happy with pushing it back, ideally would be better to do this before Skyleague though to avoid conflicts.

Any ideas welcome ;')

As a side note: This could be a fun opportunity for vets to pull out their smurf accounts.

Classy, why not have like people sign up but as free agents, that way, teams in their sole formation would have more options for players and eventually be picked up by those teams who are already established or perhaps, form another team from free agents if there are enough to fill in at least 6?

I was just thinking of this if KLF by some reason doesn't sign up, so I'd be a vet on the loose. :o

This is a great idea. I wouldn't like regular teams getting separated, but this way, "free agents" could easily sign up as well.

Hi Lakos, looks like a November start, waiting for more teams to come forward. If we don't have at least 4 teams by say mid november, i'll pull it.

This is too vague, put a date on it.

We can't really plan our regular scrims and whatnot if we don't know when this is going to happen. So it's not this Sunday then?

Please Lakos i appreciate that i do, but i can hardly set a date for a tourney with 2 teams can I.

Did Zrog sign up or not? Because in their thread it looks like they have more than enough willing to play

VAN1SH1NG
10-29-2013, 09:34 PM
Best to just pick a date and stick with it so people can plan. If you don't think teams will be ready this week, push it back a week but need to make a decision now. I wouldn't push it back any more than that.

Problem is just a lack of active players. Honestly two teams sounds fine to me as long as they are close in skill level. Gives us something to do on Sunday. Really don't see us getting much more for a one day tournament. Can always combine the teams that sign up with another team or two that is picked from those who show up but don't have a team.

I know there are multiple people trying to put together teams but who knows if they will get enough.

We did sign up .. We have 8 players atm who want to play in this turney, which is more than enough for the three gamemodes

Edit: Ignore the fact that the sign-up post was combined with a joke, lol ^^

The fact of the matter is that I'm struggling with lining up enough people, and I still assume this is going to happen this Sunday (question mark), so if you want to join us, PM me.

The current lineup is:
- EvelKnievel
- Kennedy
- nEo
- Sneaky
and me, so we have 5 free spots.

I sent out some invites already, so if those people want in, they will get priority.

I actually didn't expect for this Sunday anymore, but it shouldn't be a problem. ZroG should probably be around. And even if 2 teams show up, we could form more with those online at the time. Just the fact we're starting something new already makes it worthy for me. :p We can gather again later at a Pwned 2 if it turns to be fun.

Eh, right... we don't have a time, do we.

Hey, sure, we do need more people. I'll put you on our roster then. If you know somebody who doesn't have a team yet, you could invite them as well.

Yes, we will be in the {arr} channel on the public Mumble.

VAN1SH1NG
11-17-2013, 05:32 AM
Since class has not posted any updates and this is set for tomorrow, I guess I will try to organize this. But if class checks the forums before the tournament and wants to change anything, go by what he says and not me.

I really have no idea how many teams will show enough tomorrow. Looks like we will have between 3 and 5. Since making a bracket is not too easy without knowing what the turnout will be like, planning to do a round robin where each team plays each other team once.

To speed things up, I have picked the maps to be used for each round. Home team picks the server and the first game mode while the away team picks the second game mode (no option to change servers, again to save time). It will be best of three and the third game mode will only be played if it is 1-1 after two games. Normal league scoring where you get 1 point for each game won and 1 point for each match won.

I will post who plays who each round as well as the maps right before the tournament starts and we know what teams are participating.

Top two teams will play in a best of 5 finals. If necessary, a tie after the round robin will be decided by the same tie breaker rules as APL 10.

Tournament starts at 2PM EST.

I strongly encourage everyone to show up a little early because I expect some teams will need to pick up additional players prior to the start of the tournament.

We will initially gather in a non-password protected server named "Pwned! Tournament 2PM EST Nov 17th"

Thank you for taking action, Vanish.

Class hasn't added us to the teams yet, so just to make sure, I'll say again that we signed up.

Really appreciate you picking up where Classy left off, Van!

The lack of thread activity left me under the impression that the tournament would end up pushed back or canceled, so I took on other commitments that may or may not affect my attendance. I should (hopefully) be there for a good portion of it though.

Also...

2pm EST is 7pm GMT, right?
Yep!

VAN1SH1NG
11-17-2013, 04:10 PM
Minor update from what I posted earlier.. away team will pick first game mode and home team will pick second.

Also adding 1DM as a tie breaker mode. If a TDM or TBD match ends in a tie during the round robin continue on to the next game mode (if another to play). If round is tied 1-1 after 3, tie is broken by a BO3 1DM (first team to win two rounds wins game and match). Team size for 1DM will be 6, but if both captains agree it can be played 5v5. Home team picks 1DM map out of the four on the Pwned! servers (asteroids, cave, grotto, and mayhem).

Pwned lobby lists rules and maps to be used for each round. I may or may not update the map right before the tournament starts with the match ups for each round. If I do not I will post them here.
