The first N.A. Duel Cup of 2015 is coming soon! The first four events were well received, and community support has been awesome. The internet has come a long way but due to ping restrictions most players from North America still cannot compete in the main QuakeLive events such as the 125 FPS League. The N.A. DuelCup fills a small yet vital role in providing players from this region a stage to compete on. If you missed any of the events or would like to relive them the VODs are available.
The N.A. DuelCup welcomes donations towards current or future prize pools. Please specify if you would like to remain anonymous. Total donations in 2014: $216.00 USD (thank you everyone!!)
32 Player double elimination bracket.
i. Upper Bracket games are Best of Three (Bo3)
ii. Lower Bracket games are Best of One (Bo1)
iii. Type "cv cointoss" following by "heads" or "tails" into the console to see who picks/drops first. The winner of the coin toss may pass the first map drop/pick to their opponent or take it for themselves.
iv. In a "Drop-Drop" tournament the players drop maps until there are 1, 3, or 5 maps left depending on the kind of match (best of 1, 3, and 5) they are playing. Best of one drops until 1 map left, best of three until 3 maps left, and so on. If playing anything except a best of One players now pick maps until one map remains as the tie breaker.
v. Grand Finals: Best of Seven (Bo7)
No coin-toss. First map pick is awarded to the upper bracket player. Remaining maps are chosen by the player who just lost the last map (in otherwords... the Grand Finals is a Bo7 with Loser's Pick)
If you have any questions please check the official rules first. However failing that please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or join #duelcup

$30 to the Runner up

Sign-Ups for all North American Duel Cups happen the same day as the event. The Link for sign-ups is http://1800.challonge.com/duelcup and the bracket is unlocked two hours before the event. Please do not ask if you can sign up before the bracket is unlocked. Players need to create a challonge account and sign up themselves. This is to prevent No-Shows. All players should also join #duelcup irc channel (quakenet.org) to make match scheduling easier. Please send all issues or questions to email@example.com. We will see you 17:30 CST, 10 January 2015 !!
