Just thought I'd post this to see how many would join the tourney if there was one. Feel free to post, or just to vote.

This isn't binding of course. But if there's sufficient interest, I'll begin preparations. Below is the Tournament model. As you'll see, it's designed so that no two rounds are the same, and will encourage different styles of play.

Regards,

~Ash



Round 1 - Player + 2 AIs
The players battle alongside two AI allies. Whichever side they pick, the AIs will take the remaining two sides. The battle continues until one of the two human players is destroyed. A map will be chosen where the players are set back away, and the AIs take up more forward positions to make their presence more felt.

Game 1
Player A Player B
Brutal AI Brutal AI
Brutal AI Brutal AI

Game 2
Player C Player D
Brutal AI Brutal AI
Brutal AI Brutal AI

Game 3
Player E Player F
Brutal AI Brutal AI
Brutal AI Brutal AI

Game 4
Player G Player H
Brutal AI Brutal AI
Brutal AI Brutal AI

Game 5
Player I Player J
Brutal AI Brutal AI
Brutal AI Brutal AI

Game 6
Player K Player L
Brutal AI Brutal AI
Brutal AI Brutal AI

Round 1b - Purgatory
This round takes all six losing players from Round 1 and pits them into two hell-pit deathmatches. Only one player from each round can go through to the next.

Game 1a
Game 1 Loser Game 2 Loser Game 3 Loser

Game 2a
Game 4 Loser Game 5 Loser Game 6 Loser

Round 2 - Teams
The victors from Round 1 (and Purgatory) Team up against one another. Each is free to choose their own side and fight their own style. The victor is the first team to destroy both members of the opposing team.

R2 Game 1
Game 1 Winner Game 2 Winner
Game 3 Winner Game 4 Winner

R2 Game 2
Game 5 Winner Game 6 Winner
Game 1a WinnerA Game 2a WinnerA

Round 3 - One on One
The final round of the contest sees the finalists decided. However, there can only be one victor. Each player may choose their own side, and fight on a large, expansive map. Battle ends when one player is utterly annihilated.

R3 Game 1
Game 1 WinnerA Game 1 WinnerB

R3 Game 2
Game 2 WinnerA Game 2 WinnerB

Final Show-down
The final show-down sees the winning two players battle on a very small and tight map. There can only be one winner, however the runners-up from the last round have the opportunity to play their own show-down for first place.

SD
Game 1 Winner Game 2 Winner

Play-off
Game 1 Runner-up Game 2 Runner-up

Other Rules
- Superweapons are OFF.
- Disconnecting constitutes loss of the round. In the event of the disconnect in round 2, it constitutes that player being eliminated, and the remaining player must continue to fight it out.
- Times will be negotiated between the players and the spectating ajudicator. There will be ONE adjudicator in every game who made the game, and he's there to keep an eye on things, and also to confirm the victor with a screengrab.
- Two engi rushes in one game is grounds for disqualification.


Maps List
I originally thought about using a coupla custom maps, but decided against it. Here are the maps you'll be facing in the Tourney. All players in that round will be playing the same map, so don't complain the map's shit. All players are getting the same.

-+-Round 1-+-
Russian Roulette

-+Purgatory+-
Breakaway

-+-Round 2-+-
Triple Crossed

-+-Round 3-+-
Near Ore Far

-+-FINAL-+-
Meat Grinder


This is so all players get equal opportunity to learn the maps as they wish. And so nobody thinks I'm ripping them off in terms of giving them a better map. I'm not. Everyone gets the same.

Do you also have YR working?

Nice to hear you'll join though :).

I think it'll be scheduled in weekends, for most people have school etc during the week (including tough timezones). But just my thoughts heh. I might spectate a bit, but I cannot promise anything since I have a busy schedule.

I would love to join it :sad:

Now i have RA2 working, i just need help from someone to show me how to play online :lol:

Btw when is it planed for? I have a whole week free (even in the evenings) as of the 19th March so i want to do as much as i can in that week ;)

Playing online's easy. Go to the Internet button on the YR menu, login and select 'Custom Game' or whatever it says :lol:

And there is no actual planned date...this thread was actually more to gauge interest than make things official. It's mostly gonna be weekends as Blaat said, since that's when everyone's most active, and allows everyone to work out timezones. However, if both of you are OK wit hit, I can stage a first-round match between you and Samael during that week? Give other people time to fire themselves up. :p

However, if you know other RS fans, or YR fance who can be coerced into a game, do direct them here. We need eight concrete entrants for the tourney. However, if we manage to get seven but no more are interested, I'll be the eighth, and somebody else can make and monitor my match. ;)


I will hedge my bets the 'no' was from Holly, who simply can't due to game issues...so :)

As I said, there is no fixed date. Matches will be scheduled for whenever is convenient for all concerned.

I believe Ali is also interested, so there'd be a match between the two of you, whenever it's convenient for you, Ali and whoever's hosting and watching (most likely me).

We had a quick game me, ash and apollo got owned by the AI and Ash with his crappy game tactics while I had to defend apollo and his P2 64 mb ram machine from getting owned whilst fucking suicide planes were crashing into my refinery.

...yeah my P2 can run generals all smooth without lag.. yes sure..might actually need P3 etc for that ;) -Apollo

Ali:

1) Wrong fucking topic, dumbass.

2) Stop talking bollocks. I've never seen such sloppy defending since my own the very first time I played that game.

3) Next time I ask you to teleport my spies for spying refineries, DON'T dump them into middle of a bastard tank battalion.

4) Apollo doesn't have a P2.

5) You didn't cover our asses at all. Had you actually done what I asked and done it right, I could've taken care of myself.

6) Your shitty computer caused reconnection errors. Prolly for the best, since we were getting a bit shitted by 5 NEXUSes.
