Etiquette
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.

Strategy
Your team captain is considered your IGL (ingame leader) unless they delegate this responsibility to someone else. You MUST follow their strategies and play spots/sites they tell you even if you disagree. Team captains should repeat their strategies a few times or ask whether anyone is unclear of where they are playing/doing during freezetime until their teammates acknowledge they understand what they are expected to do that round.

Pauses
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.

Gameplay
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.

ALL matches take place Saturday, April 8th - Sunday, April 9th 2017, 1 AM - 11 PM PST. Participants are expected to play every team during this time (Round Robin style, up to 8 teams/matches). Make sure you're available on these two days and times before registering.

This is a draft tournament. The highest RWS participants will be team captains. Team captains will choose a player every round of picking (like any sport draft) until teams are full. The first round of picking will be random while subsequent picking rounds will be in reverse of the previous one (1-8, 8-1, 1-8, etc). The chosen teams will remain the same for the duration of the tournament.

If too many players sign up, then the tournament will be split into groups made up of 4-8 teams. The best 2  teams in each group (or more if ties) will go to an upper stage where they will face off against the other teams which qualified. The best 2 teams in the upper stage will face off in a Finale.

There will be a minimum of 4 teams (20 players) and a maximum of 8 teams (40 players) in each group.

Post your nickname and a link to your pug stats page to register.

RWS based on 12M if >200 pugs, All if less

Posted by: M. Bison - Mar 03 2017, 07:39 PM - Forum: News Replies (7)

The buddy menu shows up prior to readying now. While the menu is open, the "people needing to ready" panel on the right hand side is replaced with a "Your Team" panel [ss]. This panel shows what your team will be if everyone readies and starts the pug. However, these teams are not confirmed until the game starts and may change as people buddy and foe each other.

Keep in mind the following:

+buddy's effect is stronger than +foe. The effect of +buddy/+foe is also 4x stronger if it's mutual between players. Additionally, if you have someone !ignore'd then it's the equivalent of using +foe against the player (it doesn't stack).

The resulting teams will always have an RWS difference of no more than 4.0. This means it's a bad idea to +buddy every high RWS player and +foe every low RWS player (you'll end up getting one of them anyway). The system's purpose is to primarily trade players with similar RWS.

A few tactics can be employed to get the teams you want:

Two high RWS players can try to get on the same team by using +buddy on each other, +buddy on low RWS players, and +foe against medium-tier players.

If you strongly want to play with a friend, then it's possible you may have to +buddy someone you hate in order to make it happen. This is because the only combination which is RWS balanced may require both players on your team (your friend and your enemy).

I've updated the forums to match the servers site, the forums is mostly responsive so you can browse it on your mobile on most pages (not all).

Please report any bugs here, there's bound to be many as I never tested it and went full yolo as per Bisons instructions   Cool
