Full Version: Potential Tournament Thread

I made this thread so we don't spam the ban appeal thread with unrelated posts.

First off, if i was to organize the tournament the earliest it could happen would be the 16th of May (because of college, mainly), if anyone else want to organize it and make it sooner please manifest yourself, it ain't that complicated, especially if you communicate with bison for the private servers, i will post the potential format that i think would work the best in the current state of (wL) and if we take into consideration what we learned from the previous tournaments.

Map pool could be similar to the other tournaments :

de_dust2, de_cpl_strike, de_cache, de_season, de_nuke, de_inferno, de_tuscan, de_contra, de_russka, de_train (de_scorch ?).

Standard rules of (wL), typical league rules and tournament specific rules, like the previous tournaments would be in effect during the tournament.

Ideally the hour the tournament would start should take into account that we have many east coast, central and west coast players, in other words, that it shouldnt end too late for east coast players and it shouldnt start too soon for west coast players.

Please feel free to discuss, pretty much anything related to this potential tournament and if anyone wanna organize it sooner, again manifest yourself !
Everyone interested would join the discord at ''x'' hour

Teams would be selected the day of the tournament by a draft of the players present (Number of team or the number of players per team will depend on the amount of players obviously). Captains will be the highest rws players.

If there is not enough players we could make a bo5 with the players present or in other words competitive pugs (obviously we should discuss the details in this thread). And if by some miracle we have way too many players, we could simply double the format or introduce a group stage (but the second option would be very time consuming).

To prevent having to modify the format at the last minute, we could make a list of players interested to participate to gauge if we need to modify it prior to the draft/tournament.

The goal is to have everything done within 4 hours.

Tournament format :

Double elimination with upper and lower bracket.

Upper Bracket

Match 1 - Seed 1 vs Seed 4 (Loser goes to lower bracket)
Match 2 - Seed 2 vs Seed 3 (Loser goes to lower bracket)

Match 3 - Seed 1 vs Seed 2 (Winner vs Winner, Loser goes to lower bracket)

Lower Bracket

Match 1 - Seed 3 vs Seed 4 (Loser eliminated)

Match 2 - Seed 3 vs Seed 2 (Loser eliminated, Winner goes to finals)


Best of 3 - Seed 1 vs Seed 2 (Winner of upper bracket vs winner of lower bracket)


Maps Pool: de_dust2, de_inferno, de_nuke, de_season,de_cache, _de_tuscan, de_cpl_strike, de_train, de_contra and de_russka


You must behave professionally during the tournament since it's meant to be serious. No whining about registry, p90, teammates, strategy, cheating, etc or starting flame wars/arguments during matches. No forfeiting or ragequitting matches either. Even if it's 15-0, you're expected to finish every match.

Each player on a team can pause the match once for 60 seconds. Pauses can be extended by having a teammate or opponent use their pause. Do not use !pause unless you need to use it (strategy, emergency bathroom, internet drop, etc). In general, it's better to take bathroom breaks during half time than using !pause. Pauses take place during freezetime or the next round's freezetime.

Typical league rules are also in effect. This means certain gameplay isn't permitted, such as:

certain spots (de_train, de_tuscan, etc). The boosts on de_inferno are fine.
crouch spamming (standing and ducking repeatedly and rapidly on bomb or gun fights).
illegal defuses (you must have clear line of sight. obviously excluding barrels/teammates/flashes/smokes)
Standard War-Lords rules apply for areas not covered here.

Failure to abide by these rules will result in bans from future War-Lords events in addition to an in-game ban.
