Soldier + Med vs. Soldier + Med in a tight custom KotH map with fast respawns. The first cup was great fun and it's high time we did it again
This is probably going to be more casual than last time, but if we get a load of people wanting to play then I'll tighten up the schedule and ask Saint to put up extra servers* so that there's less waiting about.
*I haven't asked Saint about this yet - if we need to do it then I hope it's ok with you again
Saturday 15th + Sunday 16th of February.
Starting at around 7pm SpA time (6pm UK).
We'll use the Events server and maybe an extra server like we did for the last cup.
5 teams or less = Round Robin (everyone plays everyone once); more than 5 teams = single or double elimination tournament, depending on how many people sign up.
For now there's no strict schedule - just turn up as close to 7pm as you can and we'll start playing games. Server priority should be given to the teams that have played the fewest games, otherwise it'll be first come first served or just in whatever order makes the most sense at the time. Everyone will have periods where they'll need to wait around, but the matches are only about 5-10 minutes long so it shouldn't be too bad.
Best of 3 rounds for each game.
Medic - Blutsauger, Crossbow, Ubersaw
Soldier - Escape Plan, Equalizer, Disciplinary Action
Both - reskins of vanilla weapons (e.g Frying Pan, The Original etc)
Just keeping it pretty standard and classic. Using fancy unlocks isn't the point of ultiduo anyway
You can either go out and find your own partner or drop a post in this thread saying that you're looking for a teammate and then work it out from there. Either way, just let me know once you've formed a team and want to play.
It's up to you if you want to use mumble or not but I highly recommend that you do. It makes the game much more interesting for both you and the teams you'll be playing against. I imagine that the rest of us will be hanging out in a different mumble channel while the games are going on anyway, so just join up for the giggles
Obviously this is a SpA community thing so don't go asking people we've never met before to be your partner and carry you through the tournament. It's pretty sad that I have to mention this at all, but we know what happened last time. So I reserve the right to kick you if you try to be a TINY LITTLE DINOSAUR ARMS, but I know you guys won't do that
Yep! We've got some copies of Red Orchestra 2 RS and Epigenesis to give away. How many we'll be giving out will depend on how many teams sign up, so I'll announce that at the start of the tournament.
