Outpost 2 1vs1 Tournament
« on: December 22, 2006, 01:18:24 PM »
Outpost Universe Outpost 2 1vs1 Tournament 2006/2007

Format: 1 vs 1
Race: Player preference
Scenario: Both players must agree on a scenario to play. If they can't agree then it defaults to Last one Standing
Map: Both players must agree on a map to play. If they can't agree then it defaults to Nostalgia.
Morale: Both players must agree for morale to be set to steady or to be on. If players canít agree then it defaults to morale steady.
Day and Night: Both players must agree for D&N for be on or off. If players canít agree then it defaults to D&N off.
Disasters: Both players must agree for disasters to be on or off. If players canít agree then it defaults to disasters off.
Attack Mark: Both players must agree on a attack mark. If players can't agree then it defauls to no attack mark.
Build Mark (For Land Rush scenario): You should use mark 60 or 80 depending on the size of the map.



Default Settings:
Scenario: Last one Standing
Map: Nostalgia
Morale: Steady
Day and Night: Off
Disasters: Off
Attack Mark: No Attack Mark
Build Mark (For Land Rush games): Mark 60

How it works:
There will be rounds of matches. Everyone keeps playing until they have a finishing rank. If you win your match you advance into the winnerís bracket. If you lose your match you go into the loserís bracket which are to determine your place in the tournament standings at the end. So the player who wins all games ends up with rank 1 and the player who loses all games ends up with the lowest rank.

We will play as many rounds as needed for the players that they are. With this format games should get played quickly and it gives everyone a chance to take part and not get knocked out right away.

Each Round:
Opponents are not set or chosen by us. You pick a player from the current pool to play with. This is so we can get the games played as quickly as possible and because we have many skill levels and this is the fairest method. If you are challenged you do not have to accept the challenge unless:
- We are nearing the end of a bracket or round.
- Adminís have said that you must accept challenges so we can get the games played.
- There is no one else in the pool to play with.
We do this so you can find someone more on your skill level and who wants to play the map/scenario you wish to play.

Both the winners and losers tiers proceed in the same method. You play a game, win or lose you keep playing until youíre the only person in your pool. Your finishing rank is determined by this.

If we get a situation where there is an uneven number of players in a pool then each player must play two matchís vs two different players instead of the standard one.



Round 1:
We have starting pool of players, after round 1 matchís we then have a winnerís pool and a losers pool. At this point you are either in the winners or losers tier. Any players who have not turned up to play at this point may still enter but have to find someone in the starting pool to play with and then go into the respective pool after their match.

Round 2:
The players in the winnerís pool must play someone in the winnerís pool and the players in the losers pool must play someone in the losers pool. The players in the winners tier have to find someone in the winners tier to play with. If you win you then go into the next winners pool, if you lose you go into the next losers pool. Same happens for the players in the losers tier. We then keep doing this format until there is only one player in your pool.

Finals:
When there are 4 players left in the winnerís highest tier the 2 games played are the semi-final's. The winners play each other in the grand final. The losers play in the loserís playoff to determine who is rank 3rd and 4th. In the losers highest tier the last two players play in the losers final. For the grand final, semi-final, losers playoff and losers final a best of 3 games must be played for the match to determine a winner.

Example:
Click here for picture 1





Here is a example with 16 players with 4 rounds. Remember player 1 does not have to play player 2, they can play anyone in there current playerís pool.

This is what match's are played in each round:

Round 1
Round 1 we have all the players in the staring pool playing to determine if they are in the winers or losers tier.
Round 2:
- Players in winners pool play
- Players in losers pool play
Round 3
- Winners tier round 2 winners play (Semi-Finals)
- Winners tier round 2 losers play
- Losers tier round 2 winners play
- Losers tier round 2 losers play
Round 4
- Winners tier round 3 winners play (Grand Final)
- Winners tier round 3 losers play (Losers Playoff)
- Winners tier round 2 winners round 3 winners play (for rank 5 & 6)
- winners tier round 2 losers round 3 losers play (for rank 7 & 8)
- Losers tier round 3 winners play (Losers Final)
- Losers tier round 3 losers play (for rank 11 & 12)
- Losers tier round 2 winners round 3 winers play (for rank 13 & 14)
- Losers tier round 2 losers round 3 losers play (for rank 15 & 16)

Reporting:
Both players must report the match to an admin. You must report the scenario, map and raceís you played. If you played multiple games you must report the details for each game.

Rules:
- You must play the same colour in-game throughout the tournament. If there is conflict one of you must use your secondary colour in-game. You must use the same secondary colour throughout the tournament.
- You must report the match result ASAP via IRC (if admin is present) or forum pm.
- No cheating (not that you can), but we mean forceing a disconnect from a game.

Misc:
All results will be posted on the forum. Please donít play another match until an admin has posted results on the forum and confirmed your next pool/match.

You may at any time if you and your opponent wish play best of 3/5/7 games.
As long as both players agree to it you can play more games. For instance your first game may have been close or you both just want to play all the scenarios.

Your allowed max of 3 disconnects from a game, after this the game win goes to your oponent.

Once you start a match with a oponent you cant start another with someone else. For example you were going to play best of 3 games and you played 2 games then your oponent had to go. You cant start another match with someone else from your pool.

Adminís word is final.

Please take some screenshots as you go.

Have fun!

PLAYERS PLEASE NOTE

This tournament is a completely seperate event from my winter tourney. Users who applied to the winter tourney will have to confirm whether they will be participating in THIS tournament or not.

My Winter Tournament has been cancelled so that Levi's tournament (this one) can go through.

I will not be awarding prizes in this tournament. If there are prizes, they will be courtesy of Leviathan. I will not be involved in this tournament so that I can plan (reschedule) my tournament for February, in which I WILL be awarding prizes.

if that's the prize I am glad I am not winning as I already have the game registered to my account in steam.  Now if you made the prize HL1 EP2 that would be a different story in my wanting to win...

Wow, this is sad.
Okay I want to play ... wait a minute, I am the only one who wants to play, so I win by default. Zanco` Does it again!

Now I want this Half life dvd :P


I think another way of making people play would be to send out newsletters (like you used to). They are quite effective indeed.
if anyone finds and communicate to us that which thus far has eluded our efforts, great will be our gratitude.
