Instacup v2

[Image: UNYDSfR.png]

Instacup - Instagib Duel Tournament
It's almost time for another round of Instacup - the premiere instagib dueling tournament.

The previous tournament was such a success, that we've decided on turning Instacup into a quarterly tournament, hopefully providing some life to the instagib duel scene.

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.
As there will likely be others at your skill level, you should have enjoyable experiences, and great matches by participating in the tournament.


Rules
  1. This is a two stage tournament. First stage is a group-based round robin,  top players from each group proceed to a single-elimination knockout stage.
  2. Prize fund will be awarded for top 4 players in the knockout stage
  3. Group stage games are bo3, knockout stage games are bo3. 3rd place game is bo5, grand final - bo7.
  4. You can automate map selection and switching by typing "/cointoss heads" or "/cointoss tails" in the in-game chat during warmup stage. Starting slash is mandatory. This isn't obligation though, you may use the old-school manual cointoss and map selection.
  5. The map selection ordering is drop-drop-pick-pick-drop-drop-drop-drop-drop-pick (you shouldn't care about it if you use the cointoss bot, cause it tracks the order automatically)
  6. Typefragging and idle fragging are allowed, if you need a pause type "timeout" in console. When you are ready to resume type "timein". You can bind it to some keys for your convenience. You may take two timeouts per game.
  7. Report game results to kougi or Morosophos in Discord, IRC or Challonge PM.
  8. Save demos.

When?
Friday 19th of January. 20:00 CET
We expect phase 1 of the tournament to take, at most, 2 weeks. This should give the groups more than enough time to face eachother.
This is all subject to change as we start the tournament, and have a better idea of how many participants there are.

Due to the number of players who signed up for the previous tournament, and didn't show up, we expect players to check in a day early by letting us know that they'll 100% be attending their matches.
Players who don't turn up for the tournament, without notifying us, will be removed so that we're able to reorganise and seed the matches without delay.

Once again we'll be managing the tournament through Challonge, as it does a great job.

When deadline for signing in? too lazy to browse it all... 

farewell laserfun might be a fun map, but it lacks strategical aspects and benefits luck thanks to its open design. totally unsuitable for a tournament.

and where the hell is dade12 in the maplist??? [Image: aflagsforworship-co-uk_jo_pic_images_non...-gif.47825]

Deadline is on Jan 19th 20 CET. On that time we will have to sort people into groups and no additional participants can be allowed.

Some people do like farewell, and it's interesting to have different kinds of maps in the map pool. There are enough closed strategical maps like bloodrun, quark and fuse.

dade12 can be fun, but we can't stretch the pool too much, otherwise the map selection procedure would take too much time.

and for dade 12...kougi himself said he regrets that he didnt put it in the map-pool the first tournament, and now its still not there.

Mirio says that he sent a reply to you, can you check your forum inbox again?
I'm still thinking about dade12, we already have enough closed maps (warfare, quark, bloodrun, fuse). I want to keep the mappool balanced, so both snipers and tacticians can play on their favourite maps. Right now the balance is more towards "tactical" maps already. Another reason for doubt is that vanilla players don't know dade12 and this will be a disadvantage for them (besides an unusual mod).

yo!
I'd like to sign in! I'll normally be able to play it with those rules.
Just, you got dropped in a group then you have to meet players by yourself, did I get it?

For the group phase, that's close enough, there will be groups of ~5, these will be decided closer to the starting date. 
We'll try to balance the groups so that they're as fair as we can make them.

We'll be giving basic time slots for the group stage matches so that players know when their matches are.
If opponents want to agree to play at a specific time, then they can do that - however, they have to play their match before the next round, to avoid situations where other players are stuck waiting for them, as happened in the first instacup.

Hope to see you there.

We'll then be able to sort out the brackets, which means you'll know who your opponents are.

Remember that the tournament will be played over a period of about a week, so even if you won't be available on the Friday, you'll still be able to organise to play your matches at a time which suits you.

However, 20:00 CET will be our official time for meeting up each night for players who haven't organised a time with their opponents - this way players should have no difficulty starting their matches.

You can check-in via the Challonge page, which opens today at 20:00 CET.
