Draena (POV)
Dodger (POV)

Winner: Dodger
2nd: Ch4mp
3rd: Solid
4th: Mirio
Game Settings
Game Mode: Duel
Ruleset: XPM
Timelimit: 10 minutes
Frag Limit: None

The changes from standard XPM settings are:
  • You only have a 40% chance of spawning at the furthest point from your enemy. This is a try to prevent people forcing the enemy to spawn in a certain spot and insta-killing them.
  • There is a minimum respawn delay of 1 second, with a maximum of 4 seconds.
  • If there is a tie after 10 minutes there will be an overtime of 2 minutes. A maximum of 5 overtimes can take place if there is still no winner, afterwards there is sudden death.
See also elix-base.cfg and elix-duel.cfg in this repo.

Map Pool
Aerowalk, Fuse, Graphite, Quark, Silent Siege, Stormkeep, Tuhma

Each duel cup, one map in the pool will be replaced by a fresh one.

The format will be a 2-stage tournament with a group stage.

GSL Style Groups (Bo3) of 4 players.
Basically the group stage will be a mini-bracket with 4 players each. Top two will advance to playoffs.
See this image for how it works. Or click the bracket link and try to follow that.  Smile

Single Elimination Bo3 with match for 3rd place.
The finals will be Bo5.

Map Vetoes

Best of 3 (Bo3)
Drop Drop Pick Pick Drop Drop , remaining map is the decider

Best of 5 (Bo5)
Drop Drop Pick Pick Pick Pick , remaining map is the decider

Prize Money
1st: 26€
2nd: 16€
3rd: 8€
I'm open to donations for more prize money.

I'm mostly trusting that people play fair here and won't publish a 200 page rule book. Nevertheless I want to make a few things clear:

Sign up in this thread or on IRC with any of the admins, then Check-In before 18:00 UTC. Late check-ins can not be considered.
Admins have the final say in any controversial decisions.

If a player disconnects or quits before 2:00 minutes have been played, the map will be restarted. Abuse of this will be punished with disqualification.
If more than 2:00 minutes have passed, the player that disconnected will lose the map by default.
If both players agree, the game can be restarted.

Check-in starts Saturday, April 4th 2020, 17:00 UTC (18:00 CEST)
Play starts at 18:00 UTC (19:00 CEST)


bw, Mirio, morosophos, packer

The servers will be amazing. They will run on a 125hz ticrate (most servers use 30-60) and be hosted on amazon AWS with plenty of power in Frankfurt.
packer has kindly agreed to admin the servers [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (A1) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (A2) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (B1) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (B2) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (C1) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (C2) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (D1) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (D2) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (E1) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (E2) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (F1) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (F2) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (G1) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (G2) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (H1) (GER) [2020-eLix] Duel Cup (H2) (GER)


Thanks to everyone who participated and congratulations to Dodger for winning the whole thing.

I want to say few words on the format and game setting. This tournament was a bit of a test-run for future ones and some lessons were definitely learned.
I can say for sure that the next duel will not have these spawn settings.
As for the format I'm not sure yet, but the next duel cup is in 2 weeks so I have some time to think of something that works well with uneven numbers of players too.

EDIT: What did you guys think of the servers? They were 125hz on pretty powerful machines and from what I saw there were absolutely no problems and the game ran extremely smoothly.

It was very smooth on my side.
I also had a pretty good ping (below 40ms, kinda rare for me), please keep these servers ))

we were 18, 6x3, 2 advance right?

you could have done something like that:
3x4 (gsl style), 2 advance

2x3 (normal round robbin), 1 advance
-> makes 8 players left and every player got to play at least 2 Matches Smile

I only played one game and got wrecked, so I don't have much to say about the servers Big Grin
