Welcome to Reflex Monthly Cups


Reflex has been in need of a more established competitive scene for some time. The goal of the Reflex Monthly Cups is to give those who have the drive to compete in duel the guarantee that their commitment will be rewarded. Our goal is not to provide two tournaments or ten tournaments, but to provide a sustainable framework for competitive and dependable Reflex duel tournaments that will continue as long as there is demand and people willing to organize them.

RMC is a purely volunteer effort, but we will do our best to consistently meet our goal of hosting a duel tournament every 4 weeks for each region.

Volunteer

 

Reflex Monthly Cups is looking for volunteers eager to help us improve the quality of these tournaments:

  • Another Public Relations member who can advertise the cups on discord and other sites and platforms
  • 2 to 4 additional tournament admins
  • Additional Video Editor
  • Someone with videomaking skills to join the highlights video team
  • A newswriter who can write pre and post cup summaries

A tournament admin issues periodic announcements, reminders, and information throughout the tournament. Tournament admins are responsible for assigning servers for matches and managing the challonge page. They must be available throughout the tournament to assign servers as games are finished, as well as in cases where rules need to be enforced. The more tournament admins available for a tournament, the less the workload will be for each one.

If you are interested in any of these roles, please contact @DazedSpartan#3488 on discord. Thank you!

Reflex Monthly Cups staff is happy to announce that prize pool donations and payouts will be handled through https://matcherino.com/

Thank you to all donators!

I'm pushing a 1.1.2 expplus build to the expplus steam branch for this. This will allow you to use the custom ruleset on the 1.1.2 build.

note: If you go this way, only the server will need the expplus branch, connecting clients just need to callvote ruleset experimental_plus

Been sitting on it for a while with anticipation that 1.2 would beat it - but it doesn't look like that's the case.

Please let me know if there are any issues setting up the expplus servers.

Reflex Monthly Cups Experimental Map Pool Discussion

The main goal of RMC is to provide a solid and pure foundation for competitive Reflex. A refined map pool is an important component of this goal. 

Some preliminary changes have been made to:

The Catalyst :http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1227484158
Pocket Infinity :http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1227493206
Furnace :http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1227513321
Simplicity :http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1227501276
Abandoned Shelter :http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1227508873

 

The main goals are :
-Giving more options for out of control play on some maps
-Making use of the ruleset ammo changes by moving and changing the amount of ammo boxes on some maps

These changes are not final, and are a starting point to promote constructive discussion that will lead to maps that utilize the full potential of the new ruleset.

Please provide feedback and suggestions in the respective RMC-EXPERIMENTAL-MAP-POOL discord channels here : https://discord.gg/VkayrzM

After months of feedback and tweaking, this experimental map pool may be showcased and tested in a future Reflex Monthly Cup edition. 

Thank you for your help and see you in the 1st EU cup this weekend!

The EU cup on December 17th will use the standard map pool as outlined in the rules.

We continue to need more tournament admins who will be available to help run the NA cups. Please contact @DazedSpartan#3488 if you believe you can be of service.

The item layout is largely effected by the world spawn so forcing the same sort of "standard" item layout to every map is a really bad idea.
There was a reason why maps were designed the way they are and that (at least) partly took the item layout into account. Just changing that with a general argument in mind that disregards every map specific situation that will be caused by the changes goes against all mapping theory that Reflex mappers used up to date.

We appreciate your feedback but want to remind you that the goal of these changes is not to force standardized item layouts and is instead to give more options for out of control players on some maps.

We are not trying to create a homogenized map pool. The initial changes you are responding to were one idea of how to accomplish this goal, but the main purpose is to use Reflex Monthly Cups as an opportunity to generate new discussions and feedback to improve the map pool. In only a couple of days some of these maps have gone through multiple iterations with the initial changes simply serving as a starting point. The experimental maps will hopefully continue to be tested and tweaked in a similarly positive way in the coming months before they see any competitive play whatsoever. Expect at least 2-3 months of testing before any changes are considered to the main map pool.

Any changes will not be large, for example the most common change on these experimental maps was moving and sometimes deleting certain ammo boxes. Especially with the new ruleset coming in 1.2 where ammo is more scarce, these small tweaks should make maintaining control require more careful decision making by forcing the in control player to expose himself, take a less efficient route, or simply not have ammo for certain weapons, giving more options for out of control and a more interesting game dynamic. 

Again, we appreciate your feedback but if you would like to be directly involved in the conversation we encourage you to join the respective discord channels here : https://discord.gg/VkayrzM

Thanks,

RMC

A new rule has been added regarding the occurrence of bugs or exploits during a tournament game:

Accidental or incidental triggering of a bug or potential exploit during a match will be judged on a case by case basis by the admins.

Abuse of an exploit will result in an immediate loss of the map for the abuser. A second abuse will result in disqualification from the tournament. An exploit is a clear advantage gained through the use of unorthodox or game breaking methods that take advantage of a flaw in the game that produces a result that is clearly not intended and unfair. 

This rule is effective immediately.  

The following exploit, which has been reported to shooter, falls under this category:

This rule is designed to ensure fair competition for Monthly Cup participants.

Reflex Monthly Cups is looking for broadcasters to stream the tournaments

The tournament broadcast is a vital component of Reflex Monthly Cups. It is clear from watching Delementary, ToRRent, and GMT’s streams that having great casters helps tremendously. Unfortunately, GMT is going to be taking a break from streaming and will be stepping down as a broadcaster. We wish GMT all the best in his future efforts, but RMC is now need of streamers.

We are looking for someone who has:


-A high production quality (good settings, mic, and internet)

-Some knowledge of afps (not necessarily Reflex)


Casting is not mandatory! We are looking foremost for a dedicated streamer, casters will be arranged later if necessary. 

We would prefer someone with more experience streaming, but we are open to the idea of new streamers as well.

We pride ourselves on organizing the RMC tournaments in a way that makes it as easy as possible for the streamer. 

Each tournament will be held on a Sunday and will last 4-5 hours with the date announced far in advance.

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Additionally, in order for Reflex Monthly Cups to be sustainable we need more tournament admins who will be available for the NA editions.

If you are interested in streaming or admining please contact @DazedSpartan#3488 on Discord or send a private message to Reflex Monthly Cups on the Reflex forums.
