Xbye: I understand personal disagreements and community drama are the unfortunate (but often entertaining) bedrock of this community, that's just how it is, but I honestly have casted plenty of games involving people who I've had disagreements with. To be completely fair, whenever both of you post in a thread, it often turns into insult slinging and some needlessly long replies (see the posts above for proof of concept). Team D.A.D.D.Y. is heading for the elim bracket, their matches are going to be pretty important to the scope of the tournament. While the choice not to stream games - elimination games - for the tournament is your personal decision, Xbye, and it's not my place to tell you to change it 'cause it's your stream, I do believe some other solutions are available which don't involve you pulling your coverage. For example, if Bravo says something in all-chat you don't like, gag him. If he insults you in mumble, that might be classifiable as the oh-so-fun 'unsportsmanlike conduct' clause in the rules, and, if there's evidence of him doing so, his team could lose points. However, I would also not recommend arguing back in a similar fashion to the original comments (see above) because the results are often just sorta pointless and not a lot of value is gained, in the end. vOv

Bravo: kids who were born at the same time this game was released are going to be in second grade this year. Please stop trolling the people who are providing help for this community. Blah blah blah its dead it always has been, whatever, I still see you playin' matches. Personally, while I enjoy watching you and Xbye engaging in intelligent discussion on L4Dnation, keep whatever personal issues you've got with each other out of the livestreams he provides, or your team will face a penalty. Thanks!

RBT Tournaments / Hot Mess Tournament Round 1 -- Dark Carnival!
« on: September 25, 2016, 09:43:05 am »
Hello, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Hot Mess Tournament 2016! We are officially LIVE!!!

Round 1



Round starts: Monday, September 26th, 2016 (but if you wanna play your games today, go right ahead, for this week only).
Round ends: Sunday, October 2nd 2016 (Midnight PT)

Rules

Pairings

REMINDER: This is a home/away tournament. Some of the flags on the pairings are inaccurate due to a longstanding bug in the software. Click here for an easily searchable list of teams (ctrl + f) with captain denotation, and then go here if you need to find their specific steam profiles.

NOTES: Team Millenium (5) and Team Fear (24) were not paired due to their objectively verifiable history of suspicious behavior (aka their use of 'competitive advantages'). Evidence was presented to the administrative team in the week between signups and the tournament going live; if either reps from team Millenium (most notably their captain) or Team Fear would like to discuss/defend their history, please feel free to add the 'Hot Mess Tournament Complaint Department's Chairman', mister Fig Newtons.

Post match schedules, results, or questions related to Round 1 in this thread. General tournament questions should go in the main thread.

Results must be posted in this thread with a screenshot before the round end deadline.
Results are not to be sent over steam IM.

EVEN IF YOUR GAME IS STREAMED,
YOU MUST POST YOUR RESULTS IN THIS THREAD;
failure to do so will result in a forfeit loss.

GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!

RBT Tournaments / CASTERS/STREAMERS FOR HOT MESS TOURNEY WANTED!
« on: September 20, 2016, 02:53:22 pm »
Hello all!

With the Hot Mess Tournament scheduled to kick off this upcoming Sunday (9/25), the time has come to arrange streamers/casters for the tournament. We already have a couple of streamers interested in the tournament (who have already contacted the administration team), but if you're interested in streamcasting a game, feel free to add either myself or Volarium.

On another note, if you'd like to cast matches, we need you, too! Even if you're brand new and would like to try it out, the streamcasters already interested in the tournament are open to new voices who want to give casting a shot. If you're interested, add either myself or Volarium, and then we can connect you with a streamer. Jumping in -- with some preparation, of course! -- is the best way to go, in my experience. I personally will not be casting this tournament.

Thanks everyone! Looking forward to the start of a great tournament!

Note to all teams currently signed up and those who are going to sign up after this post: this will be a tournament played on full campaigns (i.e. Dark Carnival 1-5) each week consisting of regular and custom maps, instead of splicing maps together to constitute a full campaign. The map pool is as follows, in no particular order:

- Hard Rain: Downpour
- Detour Ahead       
- Dead Center       
- Death Toll         
- Swamp Fever       
- Dark Carnival     
- The Parish
- The Passifice

Thanks for signing up!

RBT Tournaments / Re: Hot Mess Tourney 2016: Map Format/Pool
« on: September 12, 2016, 08:36:52 pm »
Thank you everyone for your feedback! After careful consideration and taking the results of this poll into account, along with logistical implications, the admin staff has decided to run the tournament as a regular (complete) campaign tournament, meaning whole, non-spliced regular and custom maps (option 1 in the poll). The idea/option for a scrambled map rotation is a good one, and will most likely be seen in the future, but considering home/away and the leg-work required to implement a mixed-campaign map-set smoothly, we've decided this is not the tournament for its first implementation.

Thank you all once again! Signups are open HERE until September 18th!

SIGNUPS END: September 18th, 2016 (midnight Pacific Time)

EVERYONE INTERESTED IN SIGNING UP: The Map Pool for the Tournament is as follows (with one campaign/week instead of a spliced campaign system)

Note to all teams currently signed up and those who are going to sign up after this post: this will be a tournament played on full campaigns (i.e. Dark Carnival 1-5) each week consisting of regular and custom maps, instead of splicing maps together to constitute a full campaign. The map pool is as follows, in no particular order:

Thanks for signing up!




Necessary components for registration:

1. Team Name.

2. Team Location + preferred server used in matches.

3. Full roster, including: no more than six players, team captain denotation, steam community profile links AND SteamID identification for each player on the roster.

4. For specific questions regarding player eligibility, please contact ONLY our tournament administrators.

5. Please read all rules regarding the tournament. This is an assumption of good faith that the captains know the details of the rules as they have been posted; while they are fairly standard and have been mostly replicated from the previous tournament rulesets, there have been changes made to fit the needs of the Hot Mess Tournament, as there are in any tournament preparation.

Thank you!

RBT Tournaments / Hot Mess Tourney 2016: Map Format/Pool
« on: September 04, 2016, 07:52:46 pm »
Hello community. For the upcoming Hot Mess Tournament for fall 2016, an option has been proposed among the admins to alter the traditional format of gameplay for a major tournament.

Instead of playing a full campaign each week (Dark Carnival, Hard Rain) there would, instead, for all weeks of Swiss play (5) and the elimination bracket (3) on the home/away server format, be combinations of maps to constitute campaign equivalents. For example, in week 1, the map-set would be released at the start of the week as Dark Carnival 3, Hard Rain 2, Death Toll 4, Parish 2, and Detour Ahead 2. All teams would play the standard two games for home and away on that map combination. Then, at the start of week 2, the next map set would be announced, and this would continue sequentially for the duration of the tournament.

Please vote your preference above; the admin team is seeking feedback on which option the community would like to see in the tournament, so please also post below with your opinions on the benefits/detriments of each option. Please keep all feedback civil! The poll will expire a week before signups end and the final decision will be based off of feedback and resulting administrative discussion so that a final map pool is either released (or not) a week prior to signups ending.

Thank you in advance for your feedback!

-- The Hot Mess Tournament Admin Team

Updated with more details since we're less than a week out from signups starting!

1. Updated administrator list.
2. Posted a link to ruleset.
3. Updated server config (it'll be home/away for all rounds, Swiss and elimination)
4. Map pool/configuration is still forthcoming, but expect it within the week.

:D

I had a feeling of what this thread would turn into when I first saw it, and this is surprisingly close to what I imagined. If you want to play with Shade please add him because this thread isn't going to give you much pertinent information.
