Scheduled: 17:00 CDT, 22 March 2015 to 21:00 CDT, 22 March 2015
The people have spoken! You wanted Sunday Duel Cups in North America and Sunday Duel Cups you shall get! This Sunday the games will begin promptly at 18:00 CDT, 22 March 2015 and we will be "cracking down" on late sign ups to prevent games from starting late. Thank you once again to our main sponsor for their fourth $100 contribution to the N.A. DuelCup.
yer Double Elimination. Map selection for Best of Three (upper bracket) is pick/pick and best of one (lower bracket) is obviously drop/drop. Common topics Relating to rules and guidelines are below and full details are here.
1.) Occasionally someone will ask "I don't have 3 days and 300 duels played! Can I still play?" and the answer is: "probably, but you should get in touch with me first". This rule exists to deter aliasing so the tournaments can be seeded properly.
2.) In a "Pick-Pick" tournament the pla
yers each pick a map from the pool, and then drop maps until one remains. The map that remains will server as a tie breaker. Best of One sets still decide maps by dropping until there is a single map left to play.
3.) 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.
4.) Upper Bracket games are Best of Three sets: PICK PICK, drop drop, drop drop, tie-breaker
5.) Lower Bracket games are Best of One sets: drop drop, drop drop, drop drop, play last
6.) Grand Finals is a Best of Seven with a one map advantage for the upper bracket finalist (this means first to four wins with the upper bracket pla
yer starting 1:0 in map score). First map pick us decided by a coin-toss, and the pla yer who wins the coin-toss can pass the choice to their opponent. No further action is required until the first map is played as a "loser picks" format means subsequent maps are always chosen by the pla yer coming off of the loss.
6.) Duel servers (unlike classic TDM and CTF) require no modification to the server settings and can simple be made. can be copied from below to make a server with password: duel
IMPORTANT: The only values you can modify are the maps, server name, server password, and server location. There is no point ro make premium servers as it only forces some pla
yers to need invites for a server they were going to join anyway. If you simply use a password and provide the information in #duelcup irc on quakenet no one will bother you except the streamer. On that note please remember to always provide an admin a li nk to your game and the password BEFORE you ready up. Server information can be put into the #duelcup chat or given to admin or streamer using the "/msg" command in IRC. Anything sent to flair in IRC is safe from the stream. note: Anything sent to flair in game is subject to show up on stream so please use IRC!
Sign Ups will open a few hours before the event as usual. and the sign ups will close at 17:45 CDT, 22 March 2015. I do not wish to delay
Sign-Ups can be found at http://1800.challonge.com/duelcup ... the bracket is unlocked and available for sign up ON EVENT DAY (March 22nd). There are no early sign-ups or pla
yer list available. This is done to prevent no shows, and it has been working very well! To sign up pla yers need to create a http://challonge.com account.
If you are playing you must join #duelcup irc channel (quakenet.org) on game day to setup matches. Do not expect opponents to add you to their friend list in quake. It is much more efficient to send a message in the #duelcup channel or a private /msg to your opponents.
See you 18:00 CDT, 22 March 2015 !
