    Sushiflex ACE Cup

    A new Reflex Tournament format! Date: Saturday, March 10th, 2PM EST/20:00 CET Stream: http://twitch.tv/sharqosity Registration: Join the Sushi Discord and PM Sharqosity#0314 Explanation of the Rules: This format is based off of Starcraft's Proleague format. 2 captains will be chosen by the tourney admin at the beginning of the event: Captain 1 and Captain 2 will draft their teams: 1 - 2 - 2 - 1 + ( 2 - 1 etc.) until everyone has been drafted. Team members will each be given roles and split into 2 Discord text and voice channels. Here they can discuss strategy and who to put on what map The amount of maps/games played is equal to the amount of players on each team. The map pool will be announced after teams are drafted. Each team will decide a player to send to play on each map - each player can only be used once (not counting the ACE match). Each team will send their final player lineup for the map pool to the tourney admin. Once both teams are done, the match-ups will be revealed. Sharqcoin betting will be active during this event! Games will be played and streamed one at a time in the order of the map pool. All games will be played on the Sushi ruleset. Check #sushiflex-setup in the Sushi Discord if you need to get set up. Each map win for a team will net every member 10 Sharqcoin. The ACE Match: After all maps are played, teams will put forth one player of their choosing to play in the ACE match (any player on the team can be chosen now). The team that wins more maps is considered the official winner of the tournament. The ACE match will still be played at the end, and the winner of the ACE match will net his team 15 Sharqcoin each. If the teams have an even amount of players and both teams are tied after all maps are played, the ACE match will decide the winner of the tournament. Map pool MAY INCLUDE: The Catalyst, Phrantic, Outworld, QW Aero, Abandoned Shelter, and more if needed! Map pool explanation: We want to keep the map pool varied so drafted players are not only valued for their raw strength, but also their map knowledge and ability to adapt. The goal of the map pool is to let a range of different skills shine through, because we believe each player has something different to offer to the team's skillset. Note that maps in the list above may not actually be in the map pool, and maps not listed could. Registration: Players from all regions are welcome to register! It is imperative that you join the Sushiflex Discord on game day so you can communicate with your team and receive directions from the tourney admin. Since a traditional challonge page cannot accommodate for this type of format, simply PM Sharqosity#0314 on Discord to register, OR reply to this forum thread! Currently registered players: Volume, Jankygoatsmugla, lzr_dev, cozy, christian, Cthulhu, def, lko, puma, TheBennyFishel, BL, Svyt, Magikarp, rex Message from tourney host, Sharqosity: See you guys there! It'll be hype watching and rooting for your teammates. No real money prizepool this time, it's all for fun (do come and win your sharqcoin though). If you have any questions at all about the format, don't be afraid to ask and clarify. Think of this as a trial run for the format; if something doesn't work or can be improved, please provide suggestions for the next one!

    SushiFlex Mapping Competition

    All routes in default are possible in Sushi. All routes in Sushi are possible in default with one exception being the platform height bug having more prevalence. Example: Bolt Rifle platform on Pocket Infinity is now possible to reach in Sushi by jumping against the platform TWICE. Basically, Do not worry about the movement between rulesets affecting the routes and we will keep in mind the platform height issue if we come across it. This is just a mapping competition hosted by SushiFlex due to our focus on pushing a wider map pool.

Submit Your Entry Donate to the Prize Pool This competition is a map layout competition for 1 versus 1 (duel), so do not be worried about art. Depending on how this competition goes, we will host more mapping competitions in the future for different modes. Competition Process: Contestants will have until the specified deadline to complete their map layout. Judging will begin immediately after and continue for ten (10) days. Map voting list releases and a three (3) day grace period ensures. A potential tournament will be held with the map pool being the map voting list during this grace period. Community voting begins once the grace period ends and will continue for seven (7) days. The winner will be announced within a reasonable time frame after voting closes. Submission Requirements: Map must be capable of one-versus-one deathmatch (duel). You may submit up to 2 replay files with your submission (if possible , please send us SushiFlex ruleset replays!) Existing maps may be submitted as long as they were submitted to the Steam Workshop no earlier than January 1st, 2018 00:00 GMT. UNLESS the map has had a substantial layout change (ie. something that effects how the map plays ((eg. Re-scaling, teleporter changes, item placements, etc.)) later than the previously stated date. You can submit old maps as long as they have had changes since the start of the year. Multiple entries are allowed, but only your highest scoring entry within the initial judging process will be able to place. Judging Process: Judges will initially weed out any maps that are unanimously deemed poor / incomplete. Judges will then grade the remaining maps on multiple categories using the Sushi Rating Scale (SRS). Judges also will provide a short reasoning for their score as well as may provide potential feedback on the map. SRS - Sushi Rating Scale: ⬥⬦⬦⬦ - Low Quality ⬥⬥⬦⬦ - Average ⬥⬥⬥⬦ - Above Average ⬥⬥⬥⬥ - High Quality Judging Criteria: Base Score (B) is determined using this criteria with each criteria using the SRS. Enjoyment Is the map entertaining and fun to play on? Structure Is the map geometry well designed and properly utilized? Item Placement Is the map item placement well designed and properly utilized? Potential Stability Does the map stand out compared to others in the current map pool? Approach-ability Is the map able to be played among all skill levels? Interaction Does the map encourage healthy player interaction? (inc vs. ooc dynamic enjoyable?) Experimentation Does the map successfully execute new ideas? Judge's Score (P) uses the SRS and is weighted fifty (50) percent less than the base score. Overall Score: (2B + P) / 15 Judges will then be required to give a short reasoning for the score they have given and optional feedback / constructive criticism. Community Judging: The community will then be able to vote on the top entries rated by the judges. Community members will be able to give an overall score to each map within the pool using the SRS. Selecting the Winner: Final score is calculated by: (0.6 * average judge score) + (0.4 * average community score) If a tie develops between the top 2 entries, the judges will reassess both maps. If a tie is developed between the second and third place entries, both maps will be awarded the second place prize. Prize Pool: First Place 40% of Matcherino Prize Pool 120 Sharqcoin within the SushiFlex Discord. Map is added to the SushiFlex Official Tournament Map Pool for the next available tourney and has the potential to remain within it. Second Place 20% of Matcherino Prize Pool 80 Sharqcoin within the SushiFlex Discord. Map is added to the experimental SushiFlex Tournament Map Pool. Third Place 12.5% of Matcherino Prize Pool 50 Sharqcoin within the SushiFlex Discord. Fourth Place 5% of Matcherino Prize Pool 30 Sharqcoin within the SushiFlex Discord. Fifth Place 2.5% of Matcherino Prize Pool 30 Sharqcoin within the SushiFlex Discord. Honorable Mentions 25 Sharqcoin within the SushiFlex Discord. Judges 20% of Matcherino Prize Pool 60 Sharqcoin within the SushiFlex Discord.
