(or Really Bad if you Still Don't Like Us!)

hosted by Rails Barlow, an entire sleeve of fig newtons, and ZerOxShadows. Our official anti-bullshit consultant is ZenDigital.

Sponsored by World 4 Dead!

SIGN UP --------> HERE!!


The Basics:

1. This is a Six Round Swiss Style tournament, which will then proceed to a finals bracket of the top 8 teams to determine the champion (similar to the Really Big Summer ProMod Tournament and the WatchL4D.com Spring ProMod Tournament).

2. This server format for the tournament shall be North American based with server considerations for international teams for the Swiss portion of the tournament; FOR THE ELIMINATION STAGES, HOME AND AWAY SERVERS WILL BE USED FOR INTERNATIONAL MATCHES. Server considerations for international teams for the Swiss portion are defined as such: all games where a European team plays a North American team MUST be played on a New York server. All games where an Asian team plays a North American team must be played on a California server. All games where a South American team plays against a North American team MUST be played on a Dallas server.

3. This tournament will use The Latest Version of Promod with a match by match option for both teams to play Reflux if they so choose. If both teams choose to do so, they can play their match on Reflux instead of ProMod; both teams must agree to play Reflux, if one team still wants to play ProMod then the match MUST be played on ProMod.

4. Team Signups will be in THIS thread, in order to keep organization simple. Please designate your team captain, and provide profile links and SteamID information for each player on your roster.

5. Teams have a limit of six players.

6. Team Signups close on Thursday, September 10th, 2015 at 11:59 PM PDT (Pacific Daylight Time)

7. The tournament goes live on Sunday, September 13th, 2015.

8. A round announcement for pairings, scheduling, and result posting (via screenshot) will be supplied for each round, as it was in Another Swiss Tournament and RBWT.


The map pool for the tournament is as follows:

Qualification Stages:
Round 1: The Parish
Round 2: Dead Air
Round 3: Swamp Fever
Round 4: Hard Rain: Downpour
Round 5: Dead Center
Round 6: Dark Carnival

8-Team Finals Bracket:
Finals 1: Diescraper Redux
Finals 2: The Parish
Finals 3: Hard Rain

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to post a reply and/or contact one of our admins.


REMINDER: Please do NOT post your team rosters on this announcement thread; the registration thread is linked in number four on this post.

Pro Mod 4.3.1
This was gunna come out next week but since there were some things that really needed to be fixed in Pro Mod and Reflux, I figured it'd be best to release it earlier. Sorry to everyone for the release so soon after the last. It's been a while, I'm rusty! Give a big thanks to NF and Estoopi, all these map changes are their work.

Pro Mod 4.3
Unfortunately 4.3 didn't end up being the big kahuna we were looking forward to... But I'm glad to say that it is just a minor delay, and not a cancelling of our plans. In a week I will be releasing a stripper only update for CCT, as well as some fixes for vanilla maps.

We will be looking to release the next big update in the next 1-2 months. Many of the features planned for 4.3 were pushed back simply because we want to make sure we aren't putting out anything buggy. The changes coming are HUGE for the future of Pro Mod and yet again change the definition of what is or isn't possible in a config. I look forward to it and I know that many people will be very happy with it when that time comes.

In related news to the future of Pro Mod, I would like to announce that we have taken on a new Co-Dev, Dr Horrible. We have always had a running list of features we wanted to add, and over time it out ran us. With his help we hope to catch up to that list and bring some of the bigger projects that we previously abandoned to you guys. Anyways, onto the changelog...

- Melee weapons will spawn less often, and further apart from each other.
- Chrome shotgun spread increased by 16% (3.0 -> 3.5)
- Added molotovs back (Max 1 per map) *Reminder that infected can not be lit on fire, including tank*
- Molotov burn duration reduced to 5 seconds
- Molotov max spread reduced by 20%
- Lighting a witch on fire will now trigger her normally, but will not do any damage.
- Survivors can no longer get a melee off on tank between punches when cornered.
- Chargers and tanks will no longer be slowed down by m2s.
- Removed charger chestbump plugin.
- Fixed some Pro Mod features not carrying over to Reflux.
- You now bleed out normally, rather than never losing your temp health.
- Fixed quad caps not working.
- Fixed 25 damage pounces not working.

xxLeft 4 Dead 2 Pug League

May 06, 2015, 05:30:52 pm by Jacob
Views: 2952 | Comments: 25

It is very important that you read the entirety of this post before downloading or attempting to play in the league.

What is this?
L4D2PL is an attempt to bring pug players and more competitive players together under one roof. It has benefits for both. L4D2PL allows players to quickly and easily get games going, without the hassle of struggling to find 8, arguing over who will be captain, or worrying about picking teams. It automates many parts of pugging that many people find annoying. Sick of seeing announcement spam? Me too. With L4D2PL you simply open the client whenever you want to play and when a new game is hosted, the client will tell you. There is also an option to put in your cell number for text notifications if you are a die hard pug star. Sick of people trolling or going afk in your games? Yeah, so is everyone else. The league has built in report functionality, with automated time bans based on how many reports a player receives in a short period of time. What's the upside for people who want to play more competitively than an average pug? The league will track your wins and losses, and has a leaderboard which updates after every game. At the end of the month the top 3 players are awarded prizes, and everyone's rank will be reset. If you don't care about prizes, then this feature won't affect you other than giving you more balanced games. I will get more into detail on these features throughout this post.

What did you say about a client?
Players must download a client, IXDL, in order to play. It is a very popular client in the Dota 2 scene and is used by everyone from new players, to mid level players, to the pros. By using this client we will also be getting more exposure for our scene, as L4D2 and Dota 2 are currently the only games supported by it.

So how does the league work?
Players can host games by using ! followed by the game mode they would like to play. Players can join games by typing !sign or by clicking on a game listed in the "Pending Games" section. There are 4 game modes currently supported: SG, BSG, PD, and CL.
SG can be compared to how euro mixes work, once 8 players have joined teams will be automatically picked and balanced based on ranks.
BSG is the same as SG, except that players can not see who hosted or has joined the game.
PD is comparable to how pugs currently work in the NA scene. More than 8 players can join the game, but once the host starts the game, 2 captains will be chosen automatically based on who has the highest rank. They will then take turns picking their team. Once both teams are chosen the game starts and the left over players are kicked from the lobby.
CL works the same as PD with the difference being that one player will directly challenge another, and those 2 players will be the captains.

How does the ranking work?
Each player starts at 1000 points each month. At the end of a game, the team who wins will gain points and the team who loses will lose points. Players with higher rating will win less points and lose more points. Conversely, players with lower points will lose less points and win more points. Additionally, players can earn points from winning streaks. Players with 3 or more win streaks will gain a percentage of their winnings as a bonus. Opponents will gain bonus rating if they defeat a player who is on a 3 or higher streak.

How do reports work?
Players can report other players in their game for any reason they choose. Each player starts with 5 reports, and gains 0.50 reports per game played. Reports only count once per game, regardless of how many times the player is reported. If a player is excessively reported over the course of his game history, he will receive 4 warns. Warns are our way of punishing players, you can be warned for being truant, game ruining, poor attitude, etc. Warns decrease at a rate of 0.05 warns per game. If you exceed 20 warns, you will be temporarily banned for 12 hours per exceeded warn. You can report players through the game lobby of the client.

Where do I sign up?
You can download the client from IXDL's website. I will put a direct link at the bottom of this post. Like I said though, please read this entire post before downloading. Once you have downloaded the client, simply put in a username and your steamid. Do not attempt to make 2 accounts. Once you are in the client you will see Left 4 Dead 2 listed on the side, simply follow that path until you see L4D2PL and join that channel. You are able to register and join the channel now, however the league will not be officially starting until this Friday at 9 PM EST. Players who attempt to make more than one account will automatically have all of their accounts banned, with no chance of appeal. This is not up to me. It is a rule of the client to prevent smurfing. I can not help you if you fuck this up.

Important Information / Recap:
- The league will begin on Friday at 9 PM EST There are still a couple bugs that need to be worked out before then.
- Do not attempt to make 2 accounts, you will be permanently banned.
- There are many more features planned for the future of this client. For now you will have to pick a server and mumble yourselves once the game starts. In the future we will also be automatically printing a random map for players to play, but for now players can simply vote for what map they want to play in the pre-game lobby of the client. If there is a tie, the lobby host gets to choose the map out of the tied maps.
- By default, all games are to be played on Pro Mod. In the future we will have options to host and play different configs.
- As of now this is only an individual league, in the future we will look into hosting a similar league for teams to play in.
- Again, the league officially beings on Friday at 9 PM EST. Get as many of your friends there as you can.
