Announcing the Hot Mess Tournament Fall/Winter 2016!
« on: August 15, 2016, 09:14:56 am »
Hello ladies and gentlemen! Apologies for me posting this a day or two late. Prior to the end of Bleedout, I got together and talked with a few other community people to talk about the community's direction after Bleedout's success -- well, the answer is here!

OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCING:

THE HOT MESS TOURNAMENT FALL/WINTER 2016!



SIGNUPS START: September 4th, 2016

SIGNUPS END: September 18th, 2016

SIGN UP HERE!

TOURNAMENT GOES LIVE: September 25th, 2016

ADMIN TEAM:

an entire sleeve of fig newtons, Alpha Madre, Rails Barlow, and Prodigy,

TOURNAMENT SPONSOR:

You guessed it -- The Hot Mess Pug Group

DETAILS:

Format: Team 4v4, 5 week Swiss moving to 8-team Single Elimination Bracket (meaning the tournament will last exactly 8 weeks)

Servers: Home/Away

Prize Pool: forthcoming

Config: AceMod (could see option for Promod/Reflux, but default is Acemod/if one team wants Acemod, it's Acemod)

Map Pool: The map pool is as follows, in no particular order:

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

Thanks for signing up!

Ruleset: CLICK HERE

METHODOLOGY AND FEEDBACK (PLEASE READ)

In discussing the community's next step after Bleedout, it made sense to pair one of the community's most active pug groups with the ensuing tournament; Volarium and the Hotmess admins showed a lot of enthusiasm towards the project, thank you to them for their encouragement and support. Before the tournament goes live, if there are any alterations or suggestions to ANY of the information posted above, this post serves as both an announcement but also a chance for anyone in the community to post feedback and/or discuss with the admin team about what the community would like to see. There's just about three weeks before signups go live, so you've got three weeks to reply to this thread. All of the information I've posted here is only semi-concrete because, as we know, stuff can happen in the weeks leading up to a tournament (see: RBT2). Bottom line: NEXT TOURNEY IS HERE, START SCRIMMING, GET YO TEAMS, GET HYPED.

I look forward to this post being taken down so that you can continue running a corrupt system for a game that has less teams then I can count with one hand.

PROMOD...!
PROMOD...!

If both teams want promod then promod can be played; only problem is that no teams will want promod in it's current state - with jumprocks and whatnot enabled.

I've heard various people are sick of customs ...  but Open Road wasn't used in BOT and it seems like it'd be pretty suitable for Acemod.

I won't be playing in this, but i still <3 customs.

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
