    Welcome,
    I'm Snake19, also known in community as, simply, Snake.
    And I'm here to announce great news. And, personally, I think you gonna love it. Alright, ladies and gentlemen, I'm happy to introduce you to...


    The New KAG World Cup
    [​IMG]
    (edition 2015)

    For those of you who aren't aware we had a KAG World Cup last summer held on KAG Classic with 10 participants nations. (I know it's not much but, well, it's KAG after all ::D:). That KAG World Cup was won by representants of Oceania with Ukraine as runner-ups and France on third place.

    So why not try it again?

    This World Cup will consist of series of matches on KAG with certain rules. After which we'll see what country most deserves the title of best KAG nation.
    This tournament is also dedicated in memory of @Kouji (rest in peace friend, we'll never forget you). Because without him it would be never possible to organise it. He helped me, who was basically like a stranger for him, to organise this. (Kouji was always ready to help anyone).:heart:

    I'd also like to thank following people, potential leaders of teams, who helped me much during the process of creating the rules and tournament structure: @sinitreo, @Galen, @SAcptm, @UnnamedPlayer, @8x, @Superblackcat.:heart:

    I'd like to direct you now to my friend's, @Lumeos, post that explains the rules of World Cup and how to participate with your nation's team and other important things.

    :right:CLICK HERE :left:
    (you must part of this group in order to use the links to threads within the group)

    KAG World Cup Reward :


    1st: 20€ + 5 KAG keys

    2nd: 10€ + 3 KAG keys

    3rd: 5€ + 2 KAG key


    It's possible that other rewards comes afterward.


    In the end, I want to show you two videos of matches recorded during previous World Cup:

    FRANCE VS BENELUX:
    (If you don't speak French the real match starts at 1:28)


    CANADA VS USA:
    (Thank you @Ej for video)




    Sincerly yours,
    Snake​

    Both teams will probably play on a server that is on an entirely different continent from the ones the teams are from, so both teams will have horrible ping. It's better, I suppose, but still horrible.

    EDIT: "Teams from the same home server region will play 3 different maps on their home server. Teams from different server regions will only play 2 rounds – one on each team’s home server. In both cases scoring will still depend on overall flags captured."

    You can find the rules of the Kag World Cup here : https://forum.kag2d.com/threads/rules.21874/
    It explains how we will address this possibility.

    In addition, we had a big discussions with the leaders of countries by reporting this problem of ping.

    it's been several months we organize this World Cup Kag.
    We know what we do

    Best Regards,
    Snake

    All of the maps used in the rotation need to have the same number of flags. Using the default CTF rotation would be a problem in the event a match with only two flags happens on Team A's home server (let's say they get both flags and win, the other team captured no flags). The next match happens on Team B's home server. Team B now has advantage, and we'll say this map has three flags. Team B captures all three flags and wins. This was unfair, because there was unequal scoring potential in the two matches, giving the team that has the home match with more flags an advantage. Every map in the rotation needs to have the same number of flags because of this.

    No offense but you shouldn't be forced to join something just to measure your interest. I would recommend posting the rules within this thread.

    Probably a good idea, but making people use the social forum isn't terrible either.

    it's a good suggestion. We Are here to listen to your suggestions to make this world cup kag the best as possible.
    Thank you for your help t3rnary.
    @sinitreo, @Galen, @SAcptm, @UnnamedPlayer, @8x, @Superblackcat.

    I think if you want to participate in the World Cup Kag you must join the group.
    We did that last year and it worked very well.

    I do not think Be a good idea to spam this thread rules of other.
    (And if the rules spanning several pages, people will not see etc ....)

    All was created at the posts to make way for the subsections.
    The rules are in place.

    And as there so say "T3rnary" will force his community to use social forums.

    Sincerely, Snake

    I can not give you specific dates, because we are waiting for your opinion.

    - We need to find leaders for each country.
    For now we only have it in France (Lumeos and me)

    - And we also need to find players who will make up our teams.
    (although I have some ideas I want to see the entries.)

    The servers are almost operational. Maps are operational!

    I think in the next month everything will be ready!

    I like it. but when do we expect this to kick off?
    --- Double Post Merged, Oct 21, 2014, Original Post Date: Oct 21, 2014 ---
    Also any way to have a US west coast and US east coast? Kind of unfair if only one team represents all of America as it's about the size of Europe.
    --- Double Post Merged, Oct 21, 2014 ---
    And what does it take to get a twitch stream of the action so others can watch.

    Australia and Canada are also large countries, and there will only be one team for each country. I honestly don't think it would be fair if the U.S. (or another country) had multiple teams, as that would increase that country's likelihood of winning.

    The date for the start of the tournament is TBA.

    The "size" of the country does means absolutely nothing: Last year France and Urkaine did set the top 3 while the United - States did not even reach!

    This year I know that the United States will be very strong, but it does not mean that we will let rekt :wink:

    wouldnt it be easier for the teams in each country to have to fight it out til there is 1 team to represent if that many people want to represent

    That would divide good players into different teams, and would not produce the best lineup to represent a country. The best five would likely be divided into different teams and some of them would be eliminated. It will be better to hold tryouts for each country to ensure the best possible lineup to represent a country is procured for the tournament.

    I can see this as a possible route, I just worry about some people being left out. Maybe have rules similar to Footbal world cup where country of origin could be claimed? Albeit more loosely than first generation.
