  1. Hello fellow Skylords! A late Happy New Year to all of you and let us proceed with the old issue...Who will win the Stress Test Open#4? Format? It will be a 1vs1 Double Elimination best of 3 tournament, the grand final will be best of 5 (one match, no reset). Semi finals and (losers)finals will be all played on stream. Prize Pool! (subject to change) 1st place - 1500 BFP 2nd place - 1000 BFP 3rd place - 700BFP 4th place - 500 When? On 26.01.19 starting on 4pm CET, the stream will start about 30 minutes in advance. Where? In the Sparring grounds, get the community observer maps to enable observers/streaming. Link Extract the folder to Documents/Battleforge/ Please test if the maps are accessible for you before the tournament. Use the bracket list in Challonge to contact other participants if you need help (or contact me). Organisation? The tournament brackets will be on Challonge, so register and join the tournament there. Please use your in game account name to make communication and finding your enemy easier. LINK to Challonge. The streaming channel that will be covering the tournament is DasToggy on twitch.tv . In case of problems contact me or one of my mods via Discord or Battleforge. A list of tournament mods and organizers: DasToggy, Karlmann Rules! -No bugabuse, cheating or insulting the other players. Penalties may vary from a warning to default loss. -Disconnection during a game results in a default loss. If both sides agree it is possible to have a remake. Should there be severe server problems matches will be posponed. -Not showing up to your match with after 15 minutes results in a default loss. The plan is to play a round of matches every 30 mins. -To make sure we can handle your situation correctly or determine who won, save the replay of your matches. This is performed by going to Documents/Battleforge/replays and altering the name of autosave.pmv (Do this before playing another game or the Autosave will be overwritten). Please use a descriptive title. -After your match go to Challonge and insert the result. That is done by clicking on your match and selecting the winner/stats . The brackets will be updated automatically. -The Map Pool is: Haladur, Simai, Elyon, Tairayver and Wazhai. The first match of the round will be played on Haladur, then it is loser's choice. Second round will start with Simai, third one... you get the drill. So again in short: -Decide to play and register for the Tournament in Challonge. -Download and extract the community observer maps. -Be online before 4pm CET on 08.12.18 and contact your enemy, invite him into a party and then host the first map (Haladur) and play the match. Then the loser picks a map of the pool above, play that. Repeat until one player has 2 wins. If you are not able to contact your enemy and he is not contacting you, proceed as if you have won. -If you win, go to Challonge and confirm your win and update the bracket. It will show your next enemy. Save the replay of the match. -Relog, contact your next enemy, invite him to a party and then host (Simai/Elyon). Repeat until you are in semi finals and do not start without me. -Semi finals and finals will be all played on stream. Communication will be via Battleforge, the stream and Discord. -Win the tournament and eternal glory. Also some BFP and maybe cards. Reply in this thread if you have questions, I will check it out later. This was a lot of text but as described under "So again in short" it is not a lot of work. I would love to see this community grow again and the competitive scene develop as well. This is a fourth step. Please recheck this thread before the tournament in case the map pool, rules or staff/mods will change. Best regards, DasToggy

    The Stress Test Open#3 08.12.18

    Hello there, 4 Players out of ~16 already get a reward but if it is demanded it would be possible to downscale rewards in further tournaments. A Double Elimination Tournament is planned and will take place in the next year :-) . See you all later for the tournament! Greetings, DasToggy

    The Stress Test Open#3 08.12.18

    Hey, I thought about hosting a "rookie" Tournament for upcoming players but there are several problems with that. -Who to in/exclude is rather difficult since i know several very strong players who did not yet make their tournament appearance. -I simply do not think we would have more than ~5 Participants since everyone who is not participating because they want to win the tournament will not join anyways...because he knows one player in that tournament who is stronger than himself. Personally I would prefer everyone to compete in the same tournament and for more inexperienced players to try and get their skill up. I mean you do not have to win the whole thing, just go in for a few games. Also we have the weekly "Battleforge Fightclub" on Wednesday evening to give everyone who wants to learn PvP or improve a platform. Greeting, DasToggy

  6. Hello everyone, the next tournament is concluded and I want to thank everyone for their participation or support. Gratulations to RadicalX and Hirooo for winning the tournament! Greetings, DasToggy
  7. Hello everyone, There has been some problems with the 2on2 observer maps but thanks to Ano we have a full mappack of maps! Be sure to download and extract them into the "documents/battleforge/map" folder. Here is the Link . Also there were some adjustments to the mappool and prizepool made. And the type of the tournament could still change so please check out this thread again tomorrow! Greeting, DasToggy
  8. We have more than one price to encourage more than the best one or two players to play in the tournament. Playing four to five matches without a reward coming in second would be frustrating. If we only want to determine the most stable and best player we would not host an elimination tournament at all (single or double). We would need a league system or several Round Robin tournaments. But I also want to have a nice evening full of matches and see all the players fight for the title and prize. Btw should not enough Teams sign up to have a decent elimination Tournament we will switch to Round Robin (that means every team will fight every team). Greetings DasToggy
  9. Directly after the tournament, so during the Stress Test. Oh do not worry, if we applied the rules that strictly, Navarr would have lost without playing since he had problems with the maps. of course only a disconnect in a running game (with enemy contact) counts as a loss. It will be allowed for this tournament. Should nobody be able to counter it or should everyone use it Shrine of Greed might be banned in future tournaments. Greetings, DasToggy
  10. Hey there champion. Do not worry, the prize pool, rules and especially the mapool can still change. Are there observer versions of other 2on2 maps? Greetings, DasToggy
  11. Hello fellow Skylords! Since the first 1on1 tournament was a big success and happened without major problems, it is time to step onto the battlefield again... with our allys! Who will win the Stress Test Open#2? Format? It will be a 2vs2 Single Elimination best of 3 tournament. Semi finals and finals will be all played on stream. (Do not start the semis without me) Prize Pool! (subject to change) 1st Team - 3000 BFP 2nd Team - 1500 BFP 3rd Team - 800 BFP When? On 17.11.18 starting on 4pm CET, the stream will start one hour in advance. Where? In the Sparring grounds, get the community observer maps to enable observers/streaming. LINK Extract the folder to Documents/Battleforge/ IMPORTANT: Also get this folder LINK Please test if the maps are accessible for you before the tournament. Use the bracket list in Challonge to contact other participants if you need help (or contact me). Organisation?

  12. Skyladies and Skylords we have a winner! Everyone fought bravely and they really earned their rewards. Gratulations go to RadicalX for winning the first Stress Test Open.
  13. The stream for the tournament is live:
  14. Hey Eirias, Everyone with basic tournament experience knows the pros and cons of single elimination vs double elimination. I decided to host a single elimination tournament first, because... ... the rounds will be played out much faster. Double elimination with more than 16 people take more than one evening (if I want to stream a lot of matches). ... we do not need a ruleset for map drafting. ... this is the first tournament since its revival. I had no clue about how many people will participate, if the scene has any tournament experience or if the servers will crash nonstop. Single elimination makes everything just much more easy and less problematic, especially with errors disconnects and server restarts. From an eSport perspective a double elimination, round robin or group staged tournament would have been better, yeah. If everything goes smooth the next tournament could be in another format. I would be happy to see you participate then. Best regards, DasToggy
  15. Completely agree, I would love to see some good sportsmanship :-) . I will change that later.
