Ho there, all you Asian mercenaries! Think you have what it takes to go toe to toe with the best? If so, come join our Top Gun MGE tournament!
There will be two categories for this tournament: Scattergun Specialist, and Ruling Rocketeer. If you’re unclear which class falls under which category, we helpfully refer you to this link. Each person is only allowed to join ONE category.
The format will be double elimination, which means you have to lose TWICE to be knocked out of the tournament. So if you don’t perform too well on that first match, no worries, you’ll still get another shot! (Which is no doubt delightful news to those of you who are having an off day, or whose mice aren’t working, or whose opponents are SO LUCKY THEY’RE LAGGING TODAY!)
Each participant may only join ONE category. Scout vs Scout, or Soldier vs Soldier.
There are only 24 slots for each category. Registration will end on the 29th of November, or when all the slots are filled up, whichever comes first.
(All participants must sign up for an account on challonge.com)
Participants will be responsible for arranging their own matches and servers. You can start once you see the Challonge brackets updated. All preliminary matches must be played within 1 December 2015 and 5 December 2015. Grand Finals and Third-Place matches will be played on 6 December 2015.
Best of Three Maps
Participants will choose 1 map of their preference from the map pool below and both maps will be played. Players whose name appears on top of the Challonge brackets get to choose first. You may not choose the same map.
In the event of a tie-breaker, Ammomod [MGE] will be played.
Viaduct Middle (Not permitted for soldier)
Snakewater Middle (take note this is glitched on mge_training_v8_beta4b)
Ghosting is strictly prohibited. If you are found to be ghosting a participant’s health or position to your friend, both players guilty of ghosting will be disqualified.
The onus is on the winner of the match to update the score in the challonge site (eg. if you win both maps, you post 2-0 etc. They are also required to take a screenshot of the finalised scores and upload it onto the challonge site (by attaching the file.) If the file is too big, they can upload it to imgur and attach link.
When a match is completed, text will appear in chat stating the outcome of the match e.g. “tharnos defeats kol 20-0 in Granary Middle”. You may screenshot that portion as proof. You may also save screenshot within steam so that we know the screenshot is linked to your account. Please see example below:
As there has been an increase in hackers of late, all players are REQUIRED to record demos of their matches. If a player is suspected of cheating, his or her demo will be reviewed. If found guilty, the cheater will be permanently banned. Demos should be kept until the end of the tournament.
Participants are also advised to save chatlogs when arranging their matches and provide them to the respective admins in the event of a dispute
Some say it’s the journey, not the destination, that matters. But who are we kidding? No one’s in it for the journey. All of you are hungry for frags, and hungrier for a reward. In fact, if I hadn’t put this at the end, most of you wouldn’t even have read through all the stuff above.
So. To satisfy your curiosity.
For either class:
3rd place: 1 key
2nd place: 2 keys
Scout Champion: Strange Professional Killstreak Scattergun
Soldier Champion: Strange Professional Killstreak Rocket Launcher
The champions will be given the tags of [Rocketeer] and [scatter-lord]respectively in the MGE servers, just to sweeten the deal.
Now, if that doesn’t convince you to stop dilly-dallying and sign up NOW, then we don’t know what will. So click the link below, and add your name to the pool of hopeful mercenaries. We wish you all the best!
