Custom Ruleset Duel Tournament [EU]

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, as some of you may know already, I've been working on a custom ruleset that aims to improve the current competitive ruleset's gameplay and weapon balance. Here is the full detailed explanation : http://reflex.fun/ruleset.html

The goal of the ruleset is not to "divide" the community but to refine these changes and then to propose them to the developers. This testing is only temporary.


I'll be hosting 4 tournaments on this ruleset :

09/07/2017 : Custom Ruleset Duel Tournament [EU]  18:00 CEST (17:00 to 18:00 for checkin)  --- 16:00 UTC

16/07/2017 : Custom Ruleset Duel Tournament [JP]  19:00 JST (18:00 to 19:00 for checkin)  --- 10:00 UTC

16/07/2017 : Custom Ruleset Duel Tournament [NA] 02:00 PM EDT (01:00 to 02:00 for checkin) --- 18:00 UTC

23/07/2017 : Custom Ruleset Duel Tournament [AU] 05:00 PM AEST (04:00 to 05:00 for checkin) --- 07:00 UTC

Players from all regions and skill levels are welcome in each tournament, servers will favor players from the original region !

Rules :

General :
Join https://discord.gg/KkmVPWp on discord for communication

Please use the same nickname on challonge and discord !
Be autonomous, contact your opponent, play your match, report the score on discord.
Unsporting behaviour may be penalised.


Match system :
Winner's bracket matches will be BO3, grand final will be double BO3 (if needed).

Loser's bracket mathes will be BO1, except the last two matches which will be BO3.


Map picking system :
Use the 'roll' command to determine which player drops first. (Player with the highest roll is the roll Winner)

W: Roll winner
L: Roll loser

BO3 : Drop(L)-Drop(W)-Pick(L)-Pick(W) - The last map is the tiebreaker map (Maps are played in order of picks)

BO1 : Drop(W)-Drop(L)-Drop(L)-Drop(W) - The map remaining is the map to be played


Servers/non EU players :

No unauthorized spectators will be allowed on the servers.
Servers will be provided, most likely DE, NL and one Dallas server.

(Players from different regions than EU are allowed, they'll however have to play on EU servers if facing an EU opponent, EU vs NA will be played on a London server, if the EU player has a higher ping than the NA player on the London server, a German server will be used)

In case of a ping/server disagreement, a DE server will be used.

Good Luck !

Had it been a month or two ago I would have donated, but can't this month -_-
Anyway at least a tournament of this size is going to be a much better and proper(!) testing grounds for experimental changes, so kudos for following up.

Maybe I'll donate something from my inventory, we'll see.

I might be able to donate something later, good to see reflex cups again and especially for experimental changes. Not that it would help but if you need too many normal cosmetics I can probably give away everything I own lol. 

Ill see in a littlewhile if it sorts itself out on the donation front.
