MAP POLL HERE: https://forums.xonotic.org/showthread.php?tid=9106

Brackets: https://challonge.com/XonoticDuelJAN2022

Hello fellow Xonoticans!

I'm happy to announce the Xonotic January 2022 Duel Championship!
It will be played in January, and players will have plenty of time to play their matches before the grand final on Saturday, January 29.

Everyone is free to join, simply notify a tournament admin on this thread or on IRC/Discord if you are willing to participate.

A minimum number of participants is required (6 people at the VERY least), otherwise the event will be canceled.
I never organized any tournament before, so I'm open to constructive suggestions that could improve this event Smile
The whole organization described below is not carved in stone yet and can still be changed!

1. General

Feel free to join #xonotic.cup on Quakenet IRC or the #tournaments channel on the Xonotic Discord (the 2 channels are bridged).

1.1 Format

Group Stage: Players play against all other people from their group. Top 2 players are qualified to the Final Stage while the other players are eliminated.
Final Stage: Players that qualified in the Group Stage play in a single elimination Final Stage, that ends with a Grand Final and a match for the 3rd place.


1.2 Schedule
  • Monday, January 3, 2022 until Sunday, January 16, 2022:      Group stage. You have 2 weeks to play against other players from your group. Top 2 players of each group are qualified to the Finals Stage. The other players are eliminated.
  • Monday, January 17, 2022 until Sunday, January 23, 2022:     Quarterfinal matches of the Final Stage must be played during that period - Bo3
  • Monday, January 24, 2022  until Friday, January 28, 2022:     Semifinal (and possibly match for 3rd place too) must be played during that period - Bo5
  • Saturday, January 29, 2022 at 20:00 CET:  Grand final (and maybe 3rd place match)! Casters and spectators are welcome [Image: smile.png] - Bo7

1.3 Demos
Admins can ask a player to give them their demos. If a player refuses to give them, a warn will be issued.

1.4 Registration
Check-in starts NOW until Friday, December 31 by a) posting here or b) messaging an admin on #xonotic.cup or on the Discord tournament channel.

2. Matches organisation

2.1 How-to

Simply talk to your opponent and schedule your games on IRC, Discord, on this thread or by any other means, it's up to you !
This tournament is not a one-day event and thus it leaves a lot of flexibility to the players. Please don't use that time as an excuse to procrastinate and play your matches at the last minute though Big Grin

2.2 Servers

[PAC] Duel                          - devfull.de:26002                         (thanks [Image: 55.gif] packer for the authorization!)
PsyX Duel (France)            - 91.134.143.13:26000
PsyX Duel (Poland)           - 147.135.209.141:26000
and maybe a USA server, if there's any interest.

2.3 Map picking

Group Stage and Rounds 1 + 2 of Final Stage
- Best of 3 (Bo3) (= 2 map wins needed)
- Heads/Tails->Cointoss + Drop-Drop-Pick-Pick-Drop-Drop -> If it ends 1:1 the remaining map is the decider. No draws possible.

Semi Finals
- Best of 5 (Bo5) (= 3 map wins needed)
- Heads/Tails->Cointoss + Drop-Drop-Pick-Pick-Pick-Pick -> If it ends 2:2 the remaining map is the decider. No draws possible.

Grand Final (and match for 3rd place)
- Best of 7 (Bo7) (= 4 map wins needed)
- Heads/Tails->Cointoss + Pick-Pick-Pick-Pick-Pick-Pick -> If it ends 3:3 the remaining map is the decider. No draws possible.

Breakdown of "Heads/Tails->Cointoss + Drop-Drop-Pick-Pick-Drop-Drop"

1. One of the players chooses Heads or Tails
2. vcall cointoss
3. Cointoss winner removes a map
4. Cointoss loser removes a map
5. Cointoss winner picks the 1st map to be played
6. Cointoss loser picks the 2nd map to be played
7. Cointoss winner removes a map
8. Cointoss loser removes a map
[if 3rd map needed:]
9. Remaining map gets played!


2.4 Matches report

One of the players should write the result on this forum thread, preferably with a XonStats URL.
You can also write the result on Quakenet IRC at #xonotic.cup or on the Discord channel (please ping me in that case).

Please enable your in-game demos, in case the result of a match is disputed.


3. In game play

3.1 Game format

- 1v1 Duel (official XPM balance)
- Timelimit: 10
- Fraglimit: 0

3.2 Map pool


Boil - Final Rage - Fuse - Mint - Quark - Stormkeep - Xoylent


A match has to be played again if the players did not play all their games on one of these maps.

3.3 Forfeiting

You may forfeit during a match of course, without getting penalties.
Obviously the map or match will be lost.


4. Prizes

No prize pool, but I'm open to suggestions if you think that's a good idea.

Oops sorry, looks like I forgot a few popular maps, including yours. Will try to edit the poll, or create a new one.

EDIT: It looks like I can't edit the original poll, so I created this new one: https://forums.xonotic.org/showthread.php?tid=9106

A tournament where I can agree with the opponent on a time and don't have to play 18:00 CET? I'm in!

There are 17 participants so far!
The preliminary brackets (not definitive!) are there: https://challonge.com/dtl8acow
In order to keep the cup short and to ensure the tournament can progress nicely, I decided to add the following soft limits:

Monday, January 3, 2022 until Sunday, January 9, 2022:      All Winner brackets Round 1 +2 games, and Loser brackets Round 1 + 2 games must be played during that period.
Monday, January 10, 2022 until Sunday, January 16, 2022:  All Winner brackets Round 3 + Semifinals and Loser brackets Round 3 + 4 games must be played during that period.
Monday, January 17, 2022 until Friday, January 21, 2022:    All Winner brackets Finals + Loser Brackets Round 5 + 6 + 7 games must be played during that period.
Saturday, January 22, 2022 at 20:00 CET:                                 Grand final ! Casters and spectators are welcome  Smile

There can be a small tolerance, especially for people starting on WB Round 1 who will have one extra game compared to others, but please try to respect that schedule as best as possible!

Of course, if you are ahead of schedule, you are free to play your games in advance! (except for the Grand final which is going to be played at a fixed date & time) Smile

Yet another change to the schedule / cup format (it will be one week longer):

Monday, January 3, 2022 until Sunday, January 16, 2022:      Group stage. You have 2 weeks to play against other players from your group. Top 2 players of each group are qualified to the Finals Stage. The other players are eliminated.
Monday, January 17, 2022 until Friday, January 28, 2022:     Final Stage, single elimination. The match for the 3rd place can be played during that period.
Saturday, January 29, 2022 at 20:00 CET:                                  Grand final ! Casters and spectators are welcome Big Grin


A Group Stage + a single elimination Final Stage is imho less a headache than the previous Double-elimination bracket format, especially with 20 participants ^^

I hope you don't mind the extra week that shifts the Grand final date to January 29 instead of 22!

Cya next week for the start of the tournament!

Hello folks,

The tournament will officially start in a few hours! Heart
 
Check your group and your opponents on https://challonge.com/XonoticDuelJAN2022

The Group Stage will last 2 weeks, from Monday, January 3, 2022 to Sunday, January 16, 2022. During these 2 weeks, you can play whenever you want against all other people from your group, in any order you want.
The top 2 players of each group will be qualified to the next stage of the tournament.

All the Group Stage matches are Bo3 (Best of 3), it means that 2 map wins are needed.
Typically, a player picks heads or tails, then starts a vote for cointoss (vcall cointoss). The player who wins the cointoss drops a map they don't want to play, then the second player also drops a map. Then the first player picks a map that will be played first. The second player also picks a map, then the first player drops a map again, and the second player too. The remaining map will be played as the decider map, in case the score is 1:1.

Feel free to contact your opponents and arrange your games on Quakenet IRC or on Discord

Please post your complete match results here, on IRC or on Discord (you can ping one of the tournament admins).

Reminder:
  • Your games must be played on one of the following servers:
           [PAC] Duel                          - devfull.de:26002
           PsyX Duel (France)            - 91.134.143.13:26000
           PsyX Duel (Poland)           - 147.135.209.141:26000
  • The map pool is:
           Boil - Final Rage - Fuse - Mint - Quark - Stormkeep - Xoylent
You can refer to the first post of this thread that contains all needed information.

Good luck & have fun!
