Xonotic Defrag World Championship 2022

Hello Xonoticians!
We proudly present you the Xonotic Defrag World Championship 2022! XDWC is a CTS tournament where we invite everyone to join and have some fun.


What is Defrag?
In Xonotic it is played in the CTS (Complete the Stage) mode using the XDF physics set. The goal is to complete a map as fast as possible.

How does XDWC work? (detailed rules further down below)
- Every player can join it at any time!
- 5 (or 6) unique and unreleased maps will be played
- Your time and ranking will be converted into a score for each map
- Player with the highest score after all maps will be crowned as the Winner

How do I get better?
There are two tutorial streams available as VODs:

Don't be afraid to even ask other players directly! Usually, they can tell you where you can improve or what you're doing wrong.
A good server to practise is " | Relaxed Running | CTS/XDF". Detailed results here:
Records from "Xonotic DeFrag - Join/Run now! - balance changes [XDF]" server can be found here:

IRC: QuakeNet, #xdwc -

  • Each Map (aka. Round) will be played for 1 week (see Schedule) on special servers, which are going to run 24/7.
  • You do not need to register beforehand to take part in XDWC!
  • You automatically join the tournament by setting a time on one of the servers listed below.
  • You do not have to take part in every Round, you can join each Round seperately as you like it. However, you won't be able to submit a time for a round that has already passed.
  • Your best time in the server rankings will be your time for the Round. The time must be set on an official server (see the list below)! You can NOT run a map locally and submit a time.
  • Weapon projectiles may not affect any runs other than the one they were fired in. Violating this rule makes your run invalid.
  • By joining the tournament you agree that we store your username and your results in our databases.
  • Points calculation formula: SCORE = 1000 * (time_of_the_fastest_competitor/your_time) * 0.988 ^ (pos - 1)


This year we're open to take donations via PayPal to cover server costs. This way we can make sure to run a smooth event with the best servers possible. Thanks in advance.

If you happen to be able to provide a server, please contact us!

I find the training map too hard for a training map. I managed to finish all maps of the previous XDWC but I can't even pass the first stage of the training map. Maybe alternative, slowest but easiest paths may help to lower the gap while keeping this good for getting better. The tutorial part was perfect anyway, it helped me to train circle jumps!

Thanks for making the first map accessible! I'm not good but it's always fun to run around pretending that I know what I'm doing. Smile

Also thank you for making the slower path available in the second map!

Any Idea why some textures are black for me on Map 5? I already tried redownloading the map. Still some textures remain black (i'm on autobuild).

Some floors (i.e. the finish) are just black.
Also some GPUs cause this problem if a textures size is not a value in power of 2 (64x64, 128x128, etc.).

I think you're right. I just tested it on my other System. It only seems to happen on AMD but not on NV. So i guess it's related to the texture size.

Yup you'Re right. I just found this thread and the fix so far is gl_texturecompression_color 0 (though i have no clue what side effects that might cause).

May I just state here that I am totally amazed by both the level of detail and the layout of Map 5? Ash has made an absolutely awesome job here, thank you so much for this unique running experience!

For me, I'm grateful for all 5 maps! I can't even imagine the careful thoughts put into them, to encourage beginners, while differentiating different levels of mastery. Kudos to all!

I very much look forward to the final videos! (By the way, it seems the event website no longer have pages with links to those videos. Or am I missing something?)

EDIT: I found them on youtube.

EDIT2: I just finished watching the videos of the winners' runs, and I'm feeling very grateful for the mappers and the runners. Together you made the whole experience so much fun! (And I agree -- the last map is definitely a master piece!)
