Important Announcement For SND 2017 Upper/Lower Bracket
« on: February 19, 2017, 10:27:58 pm »
Wasup everyone.  So with alot of recent thinking after some friends told me some things, I've decided to cut Round 7 from the tournament.  With the amounts of active teams left in the tournament (19 teams), I agreed that 6 weeks is sufficient enough and not worth prolonging the additional week of swiss.  So this upcoming week just chillax and take a well deserved break from playing L4D2.  The Upper/Lower bracket Section will start on Feb. 27th.  Rankings are not official at the moment due to some Round 6 issues I have to handle still.  So stay tuned for an official update asap.



Important Reminders For Upper/Lower Bracket Section
  • No ringers allowed at all. Official roster players only.
  • No roster replacements or subs for any reason.
  • It will be Top 8 Ranked Teams Double Elimination Brackets.
  • The official map pool for upper and lower: HERE (subject to change)




Lastly, I want to thank specific people in no order who helped kick start/contribute/support "The Still Not Dead Tournament".  This wasn't just me.  It was a culmination of a team effort.  More importantly, it was a community effort.

grz - thx for making a dope hype video for SND Tournament and making a team also last minute when you said nah to me about playing :). hype vid was lit.  Thanks for playing also man.  P.S. let your aspirations flow bro gl :D.

shade - took up the reigns to stream and cameraman tournament matches with no experience at all.  That shit was bold man.  Not to mention how much you have supported the tournament and myself up until now.  You should feel proud of yourself cuz I am man.  I feel like I can't ever repay your time and effort that you put in for this.  But all i can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart homie.  Much love man.  btw gl with your future man.

Danne - thanks for being really proactive with helping sort out cheaters and also for your feedback about stuff with the tournament.  and thx for casting also.  Despite me sometimes disagreeing with your opinions and shit,  i still take them into account even tho i always don't agree.

Vol, RageCake, and All Other Hotmess Admins - Thank you very much for allowing me to use the Hotmess group and servers to be played on and used for the tournament.  I know funding and running a community is not easy.  Alot of stuff goes on behind the scenes  Thanks for keeping the comp l4d2 scene alive in 2017 and hopefully onward. Thank you.

Mzn - This guy came outta nowhere to ask if I wanted to co-admin a L4D2 tournament!?!?  At first I was like hell naw, but then I changed my mind and said fuck it.  And here I am now.  It was mad chill working with you during the tournament bro. A lot of memories of me speaking bad fucked up spanish to your spanish l4d2 friends where we met but I think you forgave me already for that hopefully xD LOL.  But for real, Thanks for giving me a chance man. Let's get this shit done homie.  Viva espana y puertorico ;)!!!!

Spirit - thx for offering to stream and cameraman for the tournament even tho you had technical issues.

Puppy - thanks for streaming and cameraman-ing for the tournament.  means alot.

Jacob, Visor & NF all config devs past and present - thanks for making acemod and doin other shit over years with config development.  With competitive configs we'd never have something to play so thank you all.

All EU/Asian/or any other region caster & streamers - thank you for taking time out to stream and cast matches.  Left 4 Dead 2 is a global game.  Imo It's always been about collaboration and the beauty of international gameplay.

Dyl Dough - thanks for being insightful and helpful as fuck mostly every week.  Also thanks for pointing out my stupid flaws and ideas.

Sempai, Infested_Soul, Fig, WON, Bravo and all other american casters -  thank alot for casting and taking time out of your day to cast.  I always thought casting was the best part of a l4d tournament.

to anyone else I forgot, thank you. Much love to the left 4 dead 2 community and all of the community members that make up our community.  Thanks to all the teams and players cuz without you there would be no tournament.  Thank you everyone for lettin me perform my metaphorical swan song until it's time for my last curtain call.  I want no recognition or anything in return but to have at least spread some good vibes and some love during my time here in L4D2.  So together, Let's finish this tournament on a good note.

    One week long break from Left 4 Dead 2. Because teams get tired of playing one game per week. Am I right?

    <<
    SNDT 2017 Upper Bracket Map Pool

    Detour Ahead
    Haunted Forest
    Dead Before Dawn DC
    The Passifice
    Carried Off
    Undead Zone
    No Mercy
    Warcelona
    Cold Stream
    >>

    It's kinda weird when best maps from map pool are custom ones...

    Imo best way to finish the Tournament is using best map in the game - Dark Carnival.

    This Cup gets interesting. G2 for the win?!

    Tested on both Hot Mess France and Hot Mess New York, and seems to be working fine.  Must have just been a glitch, which can happen occasionally on any map. Please report if anyone sees it happening again.

    I have a question about our (G2 Team) win against Team Vatican. where is our +1 to stats and 5-1-0 in parings?
    LioN asked about this many times i guess, but no one answer him. And i hear that Vatican players call WREGHQ a hacker, so at first why if they think that WREGHQ hacking no one ask for demos after match? before our game lock crying a lot about our demos after match but no one ask for that.

    How do you determine rank in the same win and lose?
