Banana! Tournament System

In the Hedgewars Tournament 2015 you will fight several 1vs1 rounds in single elimination mode. This means that if you lose your game you remain eliminated and if you win it, you pass to the next round. We will display your opponent for each round in a tournament ladder.

-----

Orange! Rules

The tournament is based in 10 rules:

  1. - Each game will use a variable of Default mode, called Default T. (Because there is a small change, the playing order must not be random). The Default weapon set, health and turn time will be the same as the “official Default”.

  2. - Each match will take place on a randomly generated map with the Map Size set as "Large" (The way of the land generation detail is up to players at the time of the game). Refresh the map after each game. You can use any theme except Art, because it is too dark.

  3. - Each team must contain 6 hedgehogs. No more no less.

  4. - In the first two games, the playing order should not be random. One player should go first in the first game, the other in the second game. If a third game is required, it should be played with a random playing order.

  5. - Each match will be played to the best of three games, Final and Semi-Finals will be best of 5.

  6. - You have to upload the demo (hedgewars demo section) and post the links to them when you announce the match results. Only the winner of the match has to do this. The demos prove that your victory was fair, until you don’t give us the demo you are not considered the winner.

  7. - When creating a room, please include the word "tournament" somewhere in the room name, and remember to restrict team additions.

  8. - We are going to assign your opponent randomly with a Tournament Generator made by Vatten.

  9. - A - Every game in a particular round must be played within the week scheduled for that round.

    - B - Matches not played within the week schedule will be subject to review, if one or both parties are found to be responsible for the match not being played, those respective player(s) will be disqualified for the remaining duration of the tournament.

  10. - If a network problem occurs whilst both teams have more than 3 hogs the match will be replayed.If a network problem occurs when one team has less than 3 hogs, the team with the most hogs/health at the time is declared the winner. Since 0.9.21, if one player disconnect he can return to the game. So, this rule just applies if the player who was disconnected doesn’t rejoin the game.

-----

Apple Prize

So far, a pack of 4 hats for the winner. Not bad, right?

-----

Lemon! Announcing your victory

A new thread will be created for this the 2nd of February titled Hedgewars Tournament 2015 Results & Demos.
When a match is finished, the winner must announce his-her victory at the end of that post. The winner has to leave a comment which it must contain, the name, opposing player’s name, result for each game and a link to the demo for each game.

-----

Orange! Respecting deadlines

Some of the biggest disappointments in previous tournaments were due to this, we want to make sure this won’t happen again.
At the start of each round, we’ll post pairings for that week (in the tournament ladder). If Round 1 starts the 16th of January, all the games should be played by midnight on Sunday 22th of January ( a 7 days deadline). Please remember each match in the round consists of 3 games with your opponent. You don’t have to play them all at once, but you have to play them within the week of the round.

-----

We want to mention that there is currently a Shoppa Tournament in development and if you are part of it you are free to participate in our tournament at the same time.

-----

The most important information is explained, more information will be added in the meanwhile. If you have any question please ask them below. A F.A.Q will be posted.

Heart Good luck and have fun, with love, the hedgewars tournament staff. Heart

Tournaments are usually a way to get me motivated to get back into this game, but I've been so busy lately that I think I'll sit out this time.

Have fun guys!
