Tournament Format and Information.
Spoiler:
The tournament (as of now) will be a single elimination style tournament with teams of three. This means that each team will be eliminated when they lose. We cannot guarantee that all teams will play the same amount of rounds since that would require the number of teams to be a power of 2 (which isn't exactly guaranteed) Some teams may play more rounds than others, unfortunately. The tournament will be a 3 versus 3 arena-style team battle where each member of each team will receive a toolbox. The team with the last man standing will be declared the winning team. The losing team will be eliminated. Additionally, Since we do not know the number of players who will be participating in the event, we are unable to tell how many rounds will be played but we believe there will be about 5-7 rounds depending on how many teams we receive.

You can see the previous arena made by Okand from the past tournament here (just to show how big the arena is)

Tournament Rules

Spoiler:
Team rules
  1. Teams MUST not use any performance-enhancing chemical reagents during the arena match (No Ephedrine, Meth, etc.) Any players found violating this will have their team AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFIED
  2. Teams and all players are allowed to use out of game communication (skype, discord, etc) during this event.
  3. Only teams of 3 are allowed. Teams are allowed to have optional backup players but they will not receive prize money.
  4. Each team should have a team captain that can be talked to on discord.
  5. There is no guarantee you will be able to get into the server depending number amount of people going to the event. If you are a part of a team, you should get there early.
  6. If a team does not have three people at the time of their match, they will automatically forfeit their match.
  7. Teams should report when they win to their designated admin contact (We will figure out who this is closer to the date)
Fighting rules
  1. All forms of combat are allowed. You may throw your teammates/opponents at your foes, you may disarm your opponent, and you may throw your toolbox.
  2. No objects from outside the arena other than what is given to you may be used.(I.E. you should be without any jumpsuit and clothing going into the arena.)

Currently there are 3 steam keys put up for rewards for the tournament including Kerbal space program. Will up if anything else is added to the prize pot.

Needed help:
ADMIN ONLY POSITIONS:
Spoiler:
Facilitator
We will likely require 3-4 admins to be in charge of handling requests by players this includes:
  • Getting players to their arena (probably the majority of what is needed and why this is particularly needed)
  • Talking with team captains to make sure all players are here
  • Reporting the winner of each match
  • Handling misc requests

Bracket staff
We will likely need 1-2 admins to help us out with the bracket. This will involve helping us manage the bracket and receiving the reports from the facilitator admins about who won each match and recording that to the bracket. We're expecting a lot of people during the event so this will be an important role.

On duty admin
Any admin can apply for this and any amount is acceptable. There will likely be griefing and people who cause problems, so we'd just like some people to be on duty to handle ahelps.

DJ
yeah sure why not (ONLY ONE ADMIN PLEASE)

ADMINS AND NON-ADMINS POSITIONS

Spoiler:
MAPPER
Feel free to reach out to me if you're interested in taking a look at the map and even mapping the event itself. Someone reached out to me last time during the ball but I forgot to respond, so I apologize about that. If you have any mapping experience and would like to help out, feel free to reach out to me. I promise I'll respond back.

Security
We could really use people who designate themselves as security for the event to maintain order. Usually, this is good for people who can be trusted with the role. Likely there will be people who roll for the role when the round commences but we would be happy to suit up people for security if they're not participating in the event.


If you're interested in one of these roles (or you have any other questions), feel free to Forum PM me or ping me on discord @CitrusGender⁽ʷᵃᵗᶜʰ ᵘʳˢᵉᶫᶠ ᵈᵘᵈᵉ⁾#0366
