This Sunday the weather is forecast to be rainy, so why not play in another multi-team pickup, also known as #tdmpickup Draft Tournament!

The 10th tournament we've hosted gathered 92 players forming 23 teams. You can watch VODs at Flair TV and Level Up TV. Spoiler: it was won by team pecka (pecka, lethiferous, Apollo440 and Batu1), followed by team empish and "team Harry" ;) who were awarded paintings and postcards signed by the most acclaimed Quake painter, Russia vikatje. Some action shots!

Our 11th Cup in this series will start at 10:00 CDT, 17 May 2015. Signups will start at 09:00 CDT, 17 May 2015 and will last for one hour.

We'll try the incomplete DE format once again, and to motivate you to play until the last game, there's again a prize for third place!

All players are invited to participate, but remember, each player has to play at least 10 TDM pickups prior to the tournament. Please warm up by playing with us all week!

At #tdmpickup, we have many reasons to celebrate: played our 40 000th game last month, HoQ TDM season just finished, QuakeCon 2015 featuring TDM... This calls for yet another #tdmpickup Draft Tournament!

Our 10th Cup will start at 11:00 CDT, 15 March 2015. Signups will start at 10:00 CDT, 15 March 2015 and will last for one hour.

Many of you complained about the SE format in the past, so in a change from previous tournaments, #10 will feature a best-of-1 Loser's Bracket for all teams except WB finalists.

All players are invited to participate, but remember, each player has to play at least 10 TDM pickups prior to the tournament. Please warm up by playing with us all week!

#tdmpickup draft tournament #9 vods. (6 comments)

I got the privilege to stream all the games from the team who ended up winning the tournament, plus the other semi-final, and all vods can be found below, on youtube as a certain polish tdmpickup admin which i will not call out by name would complain if I only had twitch vods.

Also yes, it was made family friendly bitwise by going from BigdickTV to BigducKTV for the evening, that is not a permanent thing. I think.

Round 1 - Team gienon vs Team ahxnxa - Dreadful Place
Round 1 - Team gienon vs Team ahxnxa - Purgatory

Round 2 - Team gienon vs Team gohann - Dreadful Place
Round 2 - Team gienon vs Team gohann - Hidden Fortress

Round 3 - Team gienon vs Team rehepapp - Purgatory
Round 3 - Team gienon vs Team rehepapp - Hidden Fortress

Round 3 - Team Mastermind vs Team wood27 -Hidden Fortress
Round 3 - Team Mastermind vs Team wood27 - Purgatory

Finals

Final Round - Team gienon vs Team Mastermind - Purgatory
Final Round - Team gienon vs Team Mastermind - Hidden Fortress

And a big thanks goes out to the #tdmpickup team for a well ran draft, it was great although some massive delays on one side of the bracket. Good job.

#tdmpickup news & more (68 comments)
Posted by wision @ 10:09 CST, 1 February 2013 - iMsg
It has been almost two weeks since successful draft tournament #2, with more than 100 players attending (qlstats.info). This made us think about another tournament already, which will be happening on Sunday 17th of February. But there are matters which need to be discussed and we would like to know your opinion about them.

We can all agree that having BO1 in the first round is unfair towards some teams, so we would like to push the signups time from previous 10:00 CST to 09:00 CST, and start the tournament one hour earlier (10:00 CST) and make sure that all the games are played as BO3. Feel free to comment about the earlier start.

Another thing to discuss is the maplist. We were pretty happy with the previous maplist (Dreadful Place, Hidden Fortress, Limbus, Purgatory, Terminatria), but unfortunatelly the last map on the list hasn't been played a single time. That's why we would like you to vote in the comments on the 5th map in the maplist. Your vote can either go to Grim Dungeons, Intervention or Terminatria.

For those who don't know what a draft tournament is, you can find an explanation in our previous newspost about #tdmpickup draft 2. See you @ #tdmpickup and !add.

Schedule: Passed

As we already promised, we are announcing #tdmpickup draft tournament series. This kind of tournament is open to all the players, where you just signup before the tournament start and the teams are created automatically based on players' QLStats rating, so the teams should be equal.

First tournament of the series will take place on Sunday 25th of November. Signups will be open from 10:00 CST to 11:00 CST and done via IRC. After the signups, we will announce the teams and playoff tree. The tournament format will be Single Elimination bracket played as BO3. We will also provide Mumble and Teamspeak servers for everyone to use. The only requirement for everyone to add is that you have to have at least 10 matches played on #tdmpickup according QLStats website. If you didn't play 10 matches yet, you still have about 10 days to rank yourself. Just join #tdmpickup, !a and wait for your game to start.

But wait, there's more! During the last 7 days before the tournament, everyone playing at #tdmpickup will be competing for another prize. The person dominating in number of played games during past 7 days will receive 3-month pro membership redeemable token for QuakeLive! You can check current stats in here (please bear in mind that QLStats website is a bit slow). We will check the results exactly on 11:00 CST and we'll count out quits and forfeits.


The event will be streamed by the best TDM streaming organization ever, which of course is lvl^. Have fun!
