THE FIGHT CLUB TOURNAMENT HAS ARRIVED, ARE YOU READY?


Saturday March 9th for the 1v1s and Sunday March 10th for the 2v2s


I'm sure many of you had to be sure this was coming. Well, it's here, and for Fight Club 10, we wanted to do something a little bit special. So as of today, we are opening up 48 1v1 spots and 24 spots for teams of 2 to sign up for a big ass tournament, and it's going to be awesome. Players and teams will be placed into brackets at random, and we will have a few rules for the players, based on testing done during earlier fight clubs and a wee bit of theory crafting. Rules are subject to change based on further information, and any possible changes in future patches.














RULES


For the whole tournament:

  • All items are allowed. Yes, this includes EMPS.
  • No heat cannon, ever, at any point, on any mech; no heat scout, infiltrator, grenadier, or whatever else has heat that I can't remember
  • And since there's a bit of an expectation here, the rev-gl IS ALLOWED.
  • No countermeasures
  • You must actively engage in fights - no getting a kill and hiding the rest of the time.
  • All fights will be in bazaar, in a defined area (We'll have an image soon)

For the 1v1s

  • There will be a clearly defined area in which the fights will take place. (not as small as the usual fight club arenas)
  • First person to 5 kills is the winner

For the 2v2s

  • Both players in a team have to contact me with consent that they both want to be on the same team.
  • No doubling up on mechs, i.e. no double sharpshooters, brawlers, scouts, anything. Both players must pilot a different mech.
  • No Rocketeer/Bruiser or Sharpshooter/Reaper combos either.
That covers the rules thus far, and they are subject to change if deemed necessary.
There will be prizes for the winner and for the runners up – we would love to have meteor credit prizes to give away, but we need the codes for that (we'll buy some off you MTR/ADH!) But in the meantime the winners and runners up in both the 1v1s and 2v2s will get a prize (through paypal, probably) for their victory! We'll work out exact details for the prizes and how to distribute them as time goes on.

The 1v1s will take place on Saturday March 9th, and will begin at 1 p.m. PST/4 p.m. EST, and will run until we have all the fights finished, or we will run off into the next day if necessary. The 2v2s will be at the same time Sunday, or we'll continue the 1v1s as necessary at 1 p.m. Sunday, then move to the 2v2s.

Each 1v1 fight will be a several fights not limited by time, and the first person to 5 kills wins, and will move on. The semi finals and finals will be a 10 life fight under the same rules.

The 2v2s will be first team to 10 kills.  The semi finals and finals will be a 20 life fight.
We'll keep this post updated with any news or changes as it happens, as well as more detail as is necessary.

This will be the arena for the fights.
For clarity, this is on the down slope of Bazaar, near Prosk's side of the map.

Update update! We'll probably be using the new facility map as the tournament arena. Wait for further details/the final thread.

Anyone who wants to be in a 2v2 team, either both of you can post here in this thread indicating your desire to be on a team together, or you can email me at saturnineaberrance(at)gmail(dot)com

Feel free to post any comments, concerns, ransom notes, or threats!

UPDATE:

The winner of the 1v1 and the team that wins the 2v2 will also win a set of Hawken decals like the ones linked here!


See you guys out on the battlefield!

After a lengthy discussion, we decided it was too controversial and too powerful as it stands in the game at present. Considering that the patch will hit before the tournament, this could change, so stay updated on this topic.

Anyone who wants to sign up for 1v1s, post here expressing your intent to participate, or send me a message same as for 2v2s and I'll put you on the list.

There's a difference between making the hoop 14 feet high and telling all the players that you have to wait for half a second after running before you can shoot the ball.

Alright, just as an addition: we'd appreciate it if all those who sign up would include which mech and weapon they plan on using for statistics and because we want to keep those participating in a set mech, rather than be all over the place to respond to whomever they are fighting at a given time - we want your mech, item, and internal choice to be as much of a tactical choice as what you do on the battlefield. This can also be a good way to see, in a concrete setting, what the differences between mechs and classes are and how they interact in a competitive setting.

This, only, you know, the other way around.

Mech Specs in a PM so people don't try to counter :-p

Edit: I am guessing this is going to be single elimination, which means that since there won't be a power of 2 number of participants (e.g. 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 etc.) there will be byes. Who gets the byes?

Edited by Derf, February 23 2013 - 12:29 AM.

Go then, there are other worlds than these.

I forgot there would be byes because I am Bad At Math and have been very distracted. The brackets will be entirely randomized, so I can't say who will be where. (If I can look at it and see individuals or teams are stacked in weird ways I'll fudge locations a bit) If demand is great enough (Tell your friends, the more the merrier!) I had been planning on increasing the number to 64, which would solve the bye problem.

Sign me up for both 1v1 and 2v2 please. It'll take me some time to find me a partner for 2v2 but in anycase I dont mind being set with a random person. I prefer that my team mate have a mic so we can communicate while we're fighting though. Well see ya on the battle field
