Duel Instacup (1v1 Instagib tournament)

[Image: UNYDSfR.png]
Instacup - Instagib Duel Tournament
Do you enjoy Instagib? Want to test your mettle against other players?
Join the upcoming instagib+hook 1v1 duel tournament, hosted by Clan.exe.

Whether you consider yourself a duelist or not, there’s still a spot for you in his tournament. 
Having fun is the ultimate goal - don’t think it’s not worth joining if you don’t expect to win.
Hopefully we’ll have players of a varied skill level so that there’s something for everyone.

The final scores of each player will determine their “unofficial” instagib duel rank.
In contrast to Xonstats’ rankings, the results of the tournament will give a clearer image of how players compare against each other.

The format of this tournament means that every competitor will have several matches with different opponents.

Instagib duel (1v1, grappling hook enabled)
20 minute, frag limit of 30 per round
Swiss-system tournament 

13th October (Friday) - 20th Oct (Friday)
20:00 - 22:00 CET each night of the tournament.
We’ll play a to be determined (Depending on how many people enter) amount of rounds each night during the tournament.

Good stuff. I've always wanted to try out the Swiss system. Big Grin

Are the matches Best of 1?

Maybe allow people to sign up via this thread or PM too, if they don't want to create an extra Challonge account.

Hit me up if you need any help!
Also I'll try to take part. Wink

TheDefiant pointed me to this tournament yesterday. I signed up too!

Shame it has a hook. I do not quite like it. If it had no hook, I would maybe consider shooting around :[

Signed up.

Hey guys,
just a reminder that the Instaduel tournament is starting on Friday (8PM CET), so we're now in the process of finalizing things.

The absolute deadline for people to register for pariticpation will be on Thursday, after that we will have the final seed numbers, and everyone will be given their first opponent.
Feel free to remind people who have shown interest in joining, but haven't signed up yet.
You can see the current 1st round matchups there. (If no one else joins)

Hopefully it all goes smoothly, and everyone participates In good faith - it should be a lot of fun.

The map pool has been finalised, and these are the 9 maps which will be played.
  • Warfare
  • Farewell_laserfun
  • Quark
  • Xoylent
  • Aerowalk
  • Bloodrun
  • Stormkeep
  • Ruiner

For the matches, They'll be chosen via coin toss/map veto.

Honestly I would have played but the timeframe just doesn't work for me.

I have issue for friday match. I will not be able to make it.   Is there any way we can do it on saterday? 

SorrySorry for the last minitue,

Your opponent for the first round is Cobra.
I think, for situations like this, we'll have it so that if your opponent agrees to a match at a different time, then that's perfectly acceptable, providing the match happens before the next round. (Before 8PM the following day).
Speak to Cobra and see if you can agree on a reasonable time for your match.

As a note, could people please enable auto recording of demos on their client, so that these can sent to us and published - as well as being evidence of how the match went.

The tournament nearly here, and I want to say thanks to everyone for the interest shown in it.
Hopefully we have a friendly, clean tournament, where people show respect towards their opponents.

if it all goes well, this could become a regular thing.

Packer has agreed to stream matches from the tournament, the stream can be found here.

Due to a recent change in my work schedule, I will be unable to attend this sexual gathering.

Thx kougi,

I will check with Cobra (question is how...). I can schedule the match before 8pm next day if he can make it.

Quite a few people didn't turn up for the tournament, including Cobra.
We've had to rearrange the brackets, and as it turns out Kwakkie, you're my opponent.
What time do you want to fight tomorrow?
Let me know, and I'll be there, on the Instacup server #1.

See you then.

Hey all, apologies for leaving you in the dark. I saw Kwakkie's message in the mail, but replying directly to Challonge's email doesn't work. As I was late at work and I generate my passwords, I had no way to access any of the relevant accounts from there.
I hoped, seeing Kwakkie's email, that me not showing up was sufficient hint that tomorrow i.s.o. today is fine for me. Now I see that due to other people not showing up you guys were taking more extreme measures.
Again, I'm sorry I couldn't let you guys know in advance. Good luck with the rest of the tournament! I'll be watching the occasional game :-)

We'll be having play-offs to determine the final positions for the top 6 players.

This will be taking place on Saturday evening, at 7PM Central Europe Time (CET)

Here are the match-ups:

Round 1: [Image: 52.gif] DL vs [Image: 97.gif] kwakkie
Round 2: [Image: 123.gif] Visse vs [Image: 55.gif] Mirio

Semi final 1: [Image: 55.gif] Islinn vs Winner of round 2
Semi final 2: [Image: 120.gif] Kougi vs Winner of round 1

Grand final: Winners of semi final rounds.

It'll be best of 3 matches, with the grand final being Best of 5.

This is the map selection, slightly different to the earlier phase of the tournament due to player feedback:
  • Warfare 
  • Farewell
  • Quark
  • Xoylent
  • Aerowalk
  • Bloodrun
  • Stormkeep
  • Ruiner
  • Asylum
  • Mcsarges
  • Pukka3tourney2
Maps will be selected via: drop-drop-pick-pick-drop*6-pick

More information can be found here:

See you then!

Hey kougi. For sure I will not be available before 20.30.

Besides, can you please put the Pukka3tourney2 map on the servers. Who made the selection. I would have liked Hands of God to have been added.

Hi. Kwakkie. Thanks for pointing that out, we need to update maps on the tournament servers. Meanwhile, Pukka3tourney2 is available on the InstaDuel server, you can practice it there (settings are the same, except footsteps are disabled).


Kougi and Morosophos,

Thank you for organizing this duel tournament. I had great fun in most of the duels, with shaking hands after the games!

I hope you guys do it again next year.
