Hey there everyone!
First of all, this year we wanted to organize something special for all SWBF1 players so that we can all enjoy this game together. Every summer (or most of them) we have been organizing something we wanted you to enjoy, and this year, we want to make it perfect for you!
So, let's begin with some basics:
=> The tournament will be hosted on SWBFSpy. This means Steam players will need to copy their games into a separate folder and add the Steam reversion patch which is available here and on our info website -- feel free to shoot me a DM or send an email if you're having trouble (I strongly recommend joining an MP Monday hosted by our admin and host, Dark_phantom, as means to avoid coming up issues like the CD Key errors).
=> We have not yet come to an idea of how long it could take, probably a 6-week tourney is fine? Drop ideas and suggestions below!
=> We'll manage it mainly here, in our forums, but we recommend using our Discord server which is always available to you, and we'll do everything in our hand to make everyone feel welcome. Voice channels will be created, but I'd appreciate it if I got some help to make sure everything is set up properly.
During the following weeks, I'll try to get some outreach from everywhere and bring players' attention to our forums to get them to sign up, or at least check if this interests them. The point of doing this is to involve as many people as possible in the setup of this event.
I will attach to this post a PDF that contains all the info about the cup, making it more comfortable for everyone to download and share -- will update it until its name has the word "FINAL" at the end.
Unlike previous tournaments, we won't sign up clans or teams. Instead, once all participants sign up as individuals, we'll give each player a random number and teams will be created that way, making it random for everyone. If we find some teams way too unbalanced, we could think of changes.
Once teams are created, we'll need each one of them to give us their "home-planet"/map. To promote the talent from our modders, any map hosted in our forum is available for teams to pick (as if it is built from scratch or is a conversion).
I expect there to be at least 5-6 teams of 5 players, so each team will be able to attack at least 2 teams per week. Those attacks have to be posted on this board by at least one player from each team (make sure to deliberate with your team first).
Each map won will give +5points to the team, losses will subtract -5points. After the 6 weeks, the team with the most points will be considered the winner of the tournament.
The use of client mods are allowed except for:
=> See-through textures.
=> Extended radar.
Now, any suggestions/ideas/modifications are always welcome!
