  • Details on the Unvanquished Summer Tournament

    Originally posted by kharnov
    Greetings, Unvanquished community! As you may have heard by now, there will be a summer tournament. This will be our first official tournament ever held, and will pave the way for future organized events on even greater scales. To those that will participate in the tournament, you will become part of Unvanquished history. Make it count, but most importantly, have fun! This news post will now go over the specifics of the tournament.

    When is it?

    Our very first summer tournament will begin in the middle of July, with the first matches held on the weekend of Friday, July 19th through Sunday, July 21st. Successive matches will also be held on weekends after that. If you must reschedule a match, and both parties agree to a new date, you may hold the postponed match on a different day as long as it takes place before the next round of matches. Thus, if you can't make it to the matches on the first weekend, you have until Thursday, July 27th to have your match.

    Who may participate?

    Anyone! Both clans and individual players are invited to participate. If you don't have a clan, then you can just team up with other players that you like. The only requirement is that you must have at least four players in a match to play. If you can muster more than four players, you can play larger matches as long as both teams are equivalent in size. However, if you run short of players, then you may have a substitute on your team as long as both sides agree that the substitute can play.

    How does scoring work?

    If you win a match, your team gets three points. Losing grants no points. In the case of a tie, both teams get one point each. The two teams with the highest point scores go into the final round with each other. In the case that there are two teams tied for a final slot, there will be a tie-breaker round. If a team doesn't show up to a match and does not reschedule, then it is treated as if the team lost the match, and the points will be awarded to the team that showed up.

    How difficult is to get a team together on a Linux based forum for a tournament focusing solely on a free and open source game?
