What is this? One night, when thinking about KAG, a thought popped into my head: "Wouldn't it be cool to have a tournament in KAG?". After pondering the issue, I made this thread to gauge support, and people seem to agree with me! Join up with two of your friends (or community pals) and compete in various gametypes, For GLORY, HONOR, and BRAGGING RIGHTS. Revision Having seen plenty of support for this, I decided to go ahead and revise this post, to explain the rules and redirect people for organization. Tell me if you find any errors, or anything to add, either by conversation, IRC, or otherwise. (This section may be deleted, but I find it useful) How is it organized? The current structure is as follows: Preliminaries: All teams will compete in a Swiss-system structure, matches being performed independently of each other, and Win/Loss count being recorded. The top 8 will continue on to the finals. Finals: Remaining teams will compete in a Knockout structure, matches being performed consecutively (specifics are debatable). The winners are crowned champions, and the winning team will receive a gold account to use as they please! (Thanks to the donator Contrary :3) All games are best of 9, RCTF (Rapid Capture the Flag).Maps will be drawn in no particular order, with each map being played once per match.

In-game Specifics Thiel asked me what were the match specifics, so here they are: Due to regular RCTF/RDM being without builders, and having never really run a tournament, there will be no builders in the tournament (maybe in a future tournament). Once again, per the usual rules, every player will be given a bomb and 20 arrows regardless of class, so any kill will grant the victor more arrows as an archer or a spare bomb as a knight. Finally, each team will have 4 lives - this means each player can--ideally--die once and respawn, the 4th death being given no respawn. How do I Sign up? Signing up is to be done here. However, discussion of team members (e.g. Hey X wanna join our team?) is totally fine and much preferred in this thread, or the IRC. In addition: You are also allowed to list a substitute, though it's not required. I've decided not to include builders for this tournament -- it's 3v3, so it's supposed to be "quick and dirty" -- Builders will probably be included when there are more members in the community. Sign-up is currently closed, but I might open it again, depending on the circumstances. IRC Channel As the trend is going, I've made an IRC channel, where you can talk with other competitors or discuss some of the planning. I still need to give a few people op, but other than that it's fine.dsf Trelawney asked me to post the individual channel: (On quakenet) #kag.tournament Join the discussion here!
