Xonotic Duel World Cup 2016

Hello my fellow Xonotic'ers!

First of all I want to say thanks to everyone that has been able to participate in the previous Xonotic Winter Duel Cups. I was not that convinced in beginning of it, but it turned out to be rather popular as well as it generated some really close games for the viewers.

For some while ago me and thimo talked lightly about gathering the best Xonotic players possible and make an invite-tournament with some money in it but the idea more or less floated away during christmas/new-years holidays and Xonotic Winter Duel Cup tournaments in the weekends. However, now as we have talked through our ideas around this tournament as well gotten Mirio on it we decided we don't want to host an invitational-cup but instead have it for everyone in the community. Everyone should have a chance on the prizepool!Big Grin

We are really happy to announce Xonotic Duel World Cup 2016!

1. General

Cirruz here, I'm in.

Hello! (I prefer "Xonotician")
I cannot survive, make my time.


Silentsiege replaces Warfare as map #7.

Should be able to play.

if i were awarded the tf2 crate keys, would i be forced to accept them ?

Yeah, I'll fly down to where you are, forcibly install Steam on your machine, and give you the keys=) If you don't want the keys I can sell them on SCM and buy you a game on steam, or convert it to Paypal money (1.75$ per key minus Paypal transfer fee).

If you don't want them you will of course not be forced to accept them.

Well count me in!


I guess I could join, I definitely won't win but I do like to support esport, especially Xonotic.

ai am ai.

Fix the avatar size limit please! I want my avatar gifs back! DISCRIMINATION!
Also, change my name to 'ai', these forums sucks which can't have 2 letters in the nick!

Sign me up.

I would like to participate too. ^^ (hoping my opponent(s) will not be bored by my lack of skill)
Facjad, France.

In a short time, we have gathered relatively many players for xonotic cup standards, so keep on signing up, folks! Also, spread the word, if you have retired or old xonoticcers lazy-assing around, let them know and lets get them back up playing!

Also, i wanna challenge some instagibbers to try out vanilla mod Smile I know its a big threshold to cross at first, you could rely on nex fine on your first games and do your insane 75% accuracies! =) Come in and show your aims Big Grin

Will there be groups or are everyone in the same bracket? Latter would be nice, I'm kind of tired of cups with max 3 opponents Big Grin

Same bracket with double elimination. With 22 players participating you have to play at least 5 matches to win. Or 9 matches if you are unlucky in the first round=)

20 would be the limit for a group stage (Reversion Cup style), which is considered. But likely it will be a Double Elimination bracket.
