Recommended Posts

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?



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 + Promo ravenheart

2nd place - 1000 BFP + Cold Snap

3rd place - 700BFP + Lost Spirit Ship

4th place - 500 + Lost Spirit Ship



On 26.01.19 starting on 4pm CET, the stream will start about 30 minutes in advance.



In the Sparring grounds, get the community observer maps to enable observers/streaming.


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).



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.

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



-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, Lajesh, Uro  and Wazhai (same pool as in ranked duel). 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 26.01.19 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,
