Brackets shall be updated on a weekly basis (see Match Scheduling for more information).

[U]Game Type[/U] 1. The games shall be played in stopwatch mode. 2. Round 1: Team A shall choose a map, a server, and whether or not to attack or defend first; this constitutes a round half. Team B shall then attempt to set a lower time or defend for a higher time on that server; this constitutes the end of Round 1. The winner of the round is the team to successfully set the lowest time on the map, and is awarded 2 points. [INDENT]a. A tie occurs if neither team is able to successfully win the map in 20 minutes; both teams are awarded 1 point apiece.[/INDENT] 3. Round 2: Team B shall choose a map, a server, and whether or not to attack or defend first; this constitutes a round half. Team A shall then attempt to set a lower time or defend for a higher time on that server; this constitutes the end of Round 2. The winner of the round is the team to successfully set the lowest time on the map, and is awarded 2 points. [INDENT]a. A tie occurs if neither team is able to successfully win the map in 20 minutes; both teams are awarded 1 point apiece.[/INDENT] 4. At the end of 2 rounds, the team with the most points wins the matchup. [INDENT]a. If both teams have equal points at the end of both rounds, a third tie-breaking map shall be played.[/INDENT] [INDENT][INDENT]i. A server coin flip shall determine map and server selection. Team A shall call the coin flip. The winning team of the coin flip will choose EITHER the map (including attack first or defense first), or the server location. The losing team of the coin flip shall choose the alternate (either map, or server location).[/INDENT][/INDENT] [INDENT][INDENT]ii. The tiebreaker map cannot be the same as one of maps just played.[/INDENT][/INDENT] [INDENT]b. If another tie occurs, teams shall continue playing tie-breakers until one team leads in points.[/INDENT] 5. If there are any disputes over tournament rules at any time during a match, the match MUST BE PAUSED and the dispute must made known at that time. Do not continue the match and then complain that someone was breaking a rule. If a rule violation is not brought up at the time it occurs, it will be disregarded. 6. Maps must be played in the order of the objectives presented. No objectives may be skipped due to a map exploit (such as making a human/Supply Crate tower to climb over a wall to plant on a future objective). 7. In the event that the server crashes as the final objective is about to finish (plant, data disc transfer, what have you), it counts as an offensive victory.

As Khamul said, the maps are all on Nirvana if you want to download them from there to practice online or against the computer. The plan is to make sure that all the tournament servers are pre-loaded with the maps, so as long as you've connected to Nirvana before, you won't have any new downloads. We made sure to limit the map pool to the custom maps that are the least glitchy, even removing favorites like Comm Link because GDF supply crates don't work. The custom maps in the pool are fully-functional and proven, as we've been playing all of them for years in the TAW internal tournaments without a problem.
Posted on 22 April, 2013 - 13:28
I believe we might be switching out siwa oasis for the latest version of night raid. The one on nirvana doesn't require a boat run. The 4v4 config has no vehicles so a boat run would have turned into a swim run which is why we exclude that map initially.

Awesome unexpected news! First of all I have to say that hardly anyone is reading this section anymore, because it's kinda dead. You should ask badman to move the whole thread to the General Discussion. By the way, you can also post the whole text in just 1 post. :wink: The last time money was involved was back in 2008, I'm really surprised and at the same time I hope this will attract as many teams as possible! However I got some questions about the rules:
[U]Registration[/U] 3. Registration is open to all. No teams or players are forbidden from registering.
What about busted and well known cheaters?
[U]Maps[/U] 1. Only maps from the official list may be selected for play in the tournament. 2. Maps shall be declared on the day of the competition. No announcement of map selection before the scheduled matchup is necessary.
So the maps are set by the admins right? (I prefer this)
3. The map pool for the GG Tournament 2013 consists of the following vanilla and custom maps: [INDENT]a. Area 22 b. Island c. Refinery d. Salvage e. Sewer f. The Ark g. Volcano h. Canal i. Glory of the Weak j. Maridia k. Meltdown l. Night Raid (ATW3) m. Steedium Mines n. The Tower[/INDENT]
I think it's really necessary to change the map pool, as the newer player base is afraid of custom maps anyway and so it could discourage many teams. Furthermore not all maps are suitable for comp play. Let me go into detail: (I just list the maps which should be changed) c. Refinery Just a question here, you mean the "skip MCP" version, right? f. The Ark Got 2 (!) fullhold stages, it's incredible difficult to complete this map. There was a reason why Ark was taken out of the 4on4 map pool back then. h. Canal Not sure about this map, has never proven itself in comp play. i. Glory of the Weak ??? Never heard of this map before. l. Night Raid (ATW3) ??? Never heard of this map before. n. The Tower A very large map, never got played anywhere in comp. Radar You added so many custom maps, but you seriously forgot the best custom comp map? Comm Link Was one of the first custom maps played in comp. A fast map which would be perfect for 4on4, furthermore it's easy to learn and known by most players. I would like to see it!
[U]Servers[/U] 3. Servers shall be pre-loaded with the appropriate server config and all maps in the map pool before the tournament begins. a. A list of NA and EU servers (including IP addresses) running the tournament config and maps shall be provided prior to the start of the tournament.
So do you provide servers for both regions? Is a server with the required config allowed if it got only the default maps? (As our server has)
[U]Game Type[/U]
I skipped reading this part, sorry! :tongue: So just usual CB rules? And the flip coin method about the server is good! :wink:
[U]Match Scheduling[/U] 3. Teams shall then have the time between when brackets are posted to until 23:59 GMT Wednesday to come to a mutual agreement on when to play. [INDENT]a. Match times must be reported to [email]ggtournament2013@gmail.com[/email] by both teams so that an official may be present during the scheduled match.[/INDENT] [INDENT][INDENT]i. If a match time is not reported by 23:59 GMT Wednesday, the officials shall administratively set a time for the matchup, and shall report that time to both teams no later than 15:00 GMT on Thursday.[/INDENT][/INDENT]
Wouldn't it be much easier to set up an IRC channel for the whole cup, instead of emailing? As you could provide fast help there. My last question: Do the cup admins also play? There could be always the problem if they are biased towards certain teams or even his own team. If you need any help with the cup, I'm up to support! :wink: Looking forward to it! :cool:

Hey Rex thanks for the input! Let me try and address some of your questions/concerns. (Doing this on my phone so sorry if formatting is bad) 1. If they are known and caught cheaters they can be excluded. What we meant by "open to everyone" was more that it isn't just for clans and pick up teams are acceptable. 2. The map pool is set by admins. The map that is to be played for the match is set by the team. Before talking about the maps let me say that TAW has played these maps quite often so wizard and I are familiar with them. However that's on an 8v8+ scale so play could be different for 4v4. 3a. Yes skip MCP on refinery. There are no MCP maps. 3b. Has canal been in many other 4v4 tournaments? It's an infantry focused map that I think could be suitable. 3c. Glory is a slightly newer map but has been on nirvana for awhile an isn't too hard to learn. Night raid I thought has been aroun for awhile and should be just fine for a 4v4. 3d. Tower is a bigger map but objectives two and three are still infantry focused with obj 1 having a slightly longer run. Still though I think it could work. 3e. Radar was omitted for the explicit reason that it caused a lot of controversy during one of our match nights. The argument was between of you were allowed to transmit the UPS objectives BEFORE completing obj 1. We wanted to avoid any such potential issues and left it out entirely. 3f. Comm link was left out because it has a known bug. If a newer version exists we can use that one an that would be fine? Supply crates don't work on the map and a large plane shows up in the middle of the playing field on objective one. If a version has thy fixed we'll be more than happy to add that in. 4. We are in the current process of finding official servers for both the NA and EU sides. I you're offering use of your server, we accept :D. But to answer your question. Only official servers will be used. Or at the discretion of the officials. 5. I don't think wizard nor I use IIRC which is why we prefer email. But the email will be especially used for letting the officials know of match schedules and other official things. An iirc channel can be setup though, we just prefer email. 6. Yes admin officials can play on a team. But I understand your concern, especially when money is involved. There will be multiple officials. So an admin playing will have no say in rulings of anything that had to do with their team. An unbiased (hopefully) official will referee maps that have other admins playing on it. Besides that, we can just hold each other accountable and go off of a little trust. Everything else I skipped I'll talk to wizard tonight to discuss the points you brought up. Thanks for the feedback.

Ok, so I wait for wizards response until I comment your post.
Posted on 22 April, 2013 - 20:02
First of all, sorry for not posting it as one giant post, I thought using multiple posts would help visually separate the sections easier. :o
What about busted and well known cheaters?
You could help us out on this end, because I'm not sure who the cheaters are. :tongue: I wasn't aware of anyone that still plays that is a known cheat, we typically don't have that problem on the NA side.
So the maps are set by the admins right? (I prefer this)
The idea is to have a map pool of pre-approved maps. Teams can then decide which map they want to pick out of the pool to play their match on. No maps outside of the map pool will be allowed, but the team has the freedom to select their map every round. They can choose to play the same maps every single time, if they wish. Because there is a general pool and not assigned maps, the 7 vanilla maps and 7 custom maps provides teams with plenty of variety to choose from. If a team is uncomfortable playing custom maps, they can always choose to play a vanilla map for their attack, but they should also be prepared for the custom maps in case their opponent chooses it. We want to reward the teams with the best map knowledge, and that includes the custom content our community works so hard to put out. To clarify on some of your map questions, all maps are the Competition Mode maps, like skip MCP on Refinery and no flyer drone objective on Volcano. The custom maps we chose are the ones proven after circulating for many internal seasons in TAW. They are well-balanced offensively and defensively, have limited (if any) known glitches, and provide plenty of variety for the tournament. As far as Radar and Comm Link being excluded, it's just as Nemesis said...we had an issue with doing objectives out of order on Radar, and Comm Link does not allow GDF to deploy med crates, so we don't want to influence any team's strategy based on a map's limitations. I would love to sit down with you and discuss what maps you think should be included/excluded from the map pool. We have until registration officially opens to fine-tune these details!
So do you provide servers for both regions? Is a server with the required config allowed if it got only the default maps? (As our server has)
Both NA and EU servers will be provided (hopefully at least 2 on each side), although it's not finalized who's providing servers; I will give an update later. As far as using a server with a config but not all the maps is concerned, we'll need to discuss that further. My opinion would be that it's fine, since you choose what server to play your map on; a team would only pick a server that they know has their map on it.
Wouldn't it be much easier to set up an IRC channel for the whole cup, instead of emailing? As you could provide fast help there.
I've never used IRC before, but I'll certainly look into that! :)
Do the cup admins also play?
Cup admins can play, but there has to be a different admin officiating their match. For example, if I'm an admin and I'm playing on a team, I can't simultaneously be that match's official, someone else would referee that game. You should be an admin on the EU side! We need all the help we can get! :wink:

Hello, I juste read your mail Wizard. As Rex said it sounds sweet. Unfortunatly, as it is now, I am afraid not to be able to help you guys, as you asked me to, because I will be in an exam period the first part of May, though if it is just about playing I should be able to make it, just need to put all my gays together. Regarding the website we had for FTML, I made it all in html, it was a very simple thing, but if I had to do it again now I would need to learn everything again which would take me too much time. As long as I know, some guys like onYn and stuff are real webmasters, you should ask them. :) Even if I have no illusions about what ET:QW is now, it will be fun to play the game !

[SIZE=5]Tournament information update!!![/SIZE] I'm proud to announce that the prize pool just got BIGGER! The monetary prize is now up to $150.00 USD, and Badman has graciously offered Dirty Bomb Elite Packs as another prize!! That means we've now got prizes for 1st and 2nd place teams. :) I'm still in the process of setting up a system to accept additional voluntary contributions to the prize pool. The map pool is also being revised. The Ark, Glory of the Weak, and The Tower are being removed, and Comm Link is being added. I will edit the Page 1 posts and the downloadable PDF ruleset when I'm home, I'm typing this on my phone from work at the moment. :tongue:

Help requested!! If anyone has any experience making websites and would like to volunteer their efforts, please send me a PM. We need to create a website with some basic functionality: [INDENT]1. Main page for news and updates 2. Page for team registration and viewing registered teams 3. Page for official brackets as the tournament goes on 4. Page for tournament rules and downloads (maps, server configs, etc.)[/INDENT] We also need anyone who can make some cool graphics like Dthy and Rex already have, just some banners for the website, more sig pics, things of that nature. Any help we can get is highly appreciated! :)

It was Photoshop CS2 actually! (You can download it free from adobe!) :( Shouldn't of added the filter... I can make banners and such if I know the dimensions! *Edit* I'd also suggest tourney.cc as a website to use, as rubben did.

Question to the hosters: What's the advantage of winning the winner bracket?
Posted on 28 April, 2013 - 00:18
Is you guys monitoring the event email? I have sent a question 2 days ago. Thanks!

Question to the hosters: What's the advantage of winning the winner bracket?
So for a double elimination tournament you need to lose twice to be out of the tournament. The winner's bracket essentially translates to having never having lost, the loser's bracket translates to losing once, and not being in the tournament means you lost twice. So after there is only 1 team left in the winner's bracket and 1 team left in the loser's bracket, those two play each other. If the team from the loser's bracket wins the FIRST best-out-of 3, both teams need to play another best out of 3. Whoever wins the following best-out-of 3 wins the tournament. Now. If the team from the winner's bracket wins the FIRST best-out-of 3, they win the overall tournament. If the team from the winner's bracket loses the first best-out-of 3, but wins the SECOND, they still win the overall tournament. Essentially, everybody has to lose twice during the tournament to be out. Does that answer your question?

-]AGC[- is in! :stroggflag: Where do we sign up?
Sign ups start May 1st. On the first page of this thread Wizard mentions when sign-ups start and when the tournament starts. When you have a full team roster, you are going to email the official tournament email at: [email]ggtournament2013@gmail.com[/email] If you don't have a team and are looking for one, pm Wizard or myself and we will put your name on the first post of this thread so that other teams looking for a player can find you. Thanks.
Posted on 28 April, 2013 - 02:34
Oh! Sorry. Thanks! Will look it!

The website will automatically open tonight at midnight May 1 and will remain open until 23:59 May 12. At that point the website will automatically close sign ups and no other teams will be able to register. You effectively have 12 days to register. The website address will be released later this afternoon and as always, any concerns or questions can be posted here or emailed to [email]ggtournament2013@gmail.com[/email]

Posted on 30 April, 2013 - 14:59
Wizard, I really hope you will ban this Sverige guy... making a cup with cheaters taking part in it is not a best idea.

Then let me remind you; under the nick BratensaftHeinz he was teamkilling other players, using map glitches several times and assaults other public players and i guess many players from villa is well aware of this too.. Does such player fit in a cup? Seems like you're all fine with it.
