Custom Ruleset Duel Tournament [NA]

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 !

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 NA players :

No unauthorized spectators will be allowed on the servers.
Servers will be provided, Dallas, Chicago, New Jersey.

(Players from different regions than NA are allowed, they'll however have to play on NA servers if facing an NA opponent, EU vs NA will be played on a NJ server or Chicago server (if the NA player is west NA))

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

Good Luck !

Hey Rama,

I am interested in playing but could you consider maybe moving the NA tournament to a date during which Quake Champions qualifiers will not be happening?

I don't see any QC qualifier being held on the 16th for NA, could you confirm that there is one on that day ?

Sorry for the late response, the first NA Sacrifice Qualifier is on the 15th AND 16th. I'll attach the official image for reference. The first EU Sacrifice Qualifiers was yesterday (7/1) and they finished it today (7/2). So yes, there will be some scheduling conflicts, I'm pretty sure most if not all the top NA Reflex players are playing in the Sacrifice qualifiers.Quake_ChampionshipsBracket_FULL.png
