eFPS 2012 Summer Tournament Registration Opens!
« on: August 01, 2012, 10:27:52 am »



Tournament Main Page: http://www.everythingfps.com/tournament.php?id=33

Main Site: http://www.everythingfps.com

You must  have 4 players on your roster with steam ID's by August 26th to participate. That is over 3 weeks away so no teams should have any problem signing up. The tournament maximum is 32 teams so it is a good idea to register as soon as possible.

Format and rules are still being determined, however we will we try to use a ruleset similar to that of CG/AST, so as long as you are familiar with those you should be fine.

Rosters are limited to 6 players as always with eFPS events. (4 players + 2 backups).

May I suggest that you consider a swiss system tournament? 8) We got (almost) nothing but good feedback about it once people got used to it, and I gather most people playing in eFPS will have played in AST or followed AST and so they will be more familiar now than they were before.

It especially benefits low-level teams who get to complete a tournament and build experience even if they're losing more than they win. The prevalence of knockout tournaments might have contributed to the dearth of active teams in the past 1-2 years since it was always the same 3 teams that did well and stayed in the tournament (and so they continued to improve) while lower level players got no more experience or even had their teams break up after they knocked out of the tournament. In AST we are entering Round 5 and we still have 10+ teams active and scrimming!

I understand completely if you don't want to have a discussion in this thread -- if you have questions / objections but want to hear more, you can add me on steam and we can talk about it. :)

Yeah, if you're going to replace any of the l4d2 maps with death toll, it should be dead center. Swamp is much more balanced; people rarely play it just because it's kind of boring with the standing crescendos that have huge amounts of common and little practical chance for damage from SI.

Or just don't play Swamp Fever or Dead Center.
4 Chapter campaigns don't belong in tournaments in my opinion.
Viva la l4d1 maps.
