We are happy to announce a Round Robin between SiZe, ExCaL and Boycah on 1.04+!

IPB Image

Here are the rules:
First to 8 all matches
Moderator: ReLaX
Patch: 1.04+ (Click to Download)
Changes and more: https://www.gamereplays.org/community/index...wtopic=1028389#
Sponsors: $60 from AKAbolony (1st place), $30 from ReLaX (2nd place) & another 10$ for the best feedback provided on 1.04+, other additional sponsors are welcome.

When:
- Players arrange themselves. Games should be done before the end of or mid of February due to CW.
- Streamer: Unknown, hoping for Dominator. Others are also welcome if Domi don't want to or has no time.

Format/Rules:
- Random vs Random (players can choose at the beginning of the BO if they want to exclude USAx-USAx, GLAx vs GLAx and ChinaX vs ChinaX). --> Maybe we try to avoid any mu which is quite obvious and needs no further testing.
- Players need to choose 2 fixed, same colours which are good to make out between the players the whole BO!
- Random Reverse all way through, position on map and map itself; no real mirrors allowed like Tox vs Tox or Nuke vs Nuke for example. Real mirrors need to be cancelled and redone RND vs RND.
- First map is free to play from the map pool; if players cannot decide Vendetta should be played.
- After that loser picks every time (from the map pool).
- Players can choose the map they want, but we kindly ask for some variations for the viewers. I know pros are able to play more than TD!
- If the score is 6-6, its an vChina mirror for the decider. If the players want it could also be a AF-Mirror, if not vChina-Mirror.
- Cars can't be used as suicide cars.
- If mismatch/crash happens, the player in a clear winning position wins, streamers decision. Otherwise replayed.
- Fair Play Rules apply + no capturing buildings from inside.
Scaffold Abuse...
is any use of a scaffold that is not one of these:
-Placing scaffolds to remove GLA scraps.
-Placing scaffolds around the map to survive.
-Placing scaffolds to clear debris and ruined buildings/flatten land.
-Placing scaffolds to trick opponents when rally pointing.
-Placing/half building scaffolds to protect Workers/Dozers/Supply Trucks.
-Placing scaffolds to make air units waste their ammo.
-Placing scaffolds in front of defences with enough room to still allow them to fire (Firebases need a lot of room).
-Placing a scaffold to detonate a Demo Trap 3s after it's built. (Allowing them to place on manual.)

Map Pool:
(Near) Original maps:
TD NoBugsCars ZH v1
Barren Badlands Balanced ZH v1
Forgotten Air Battle (Winter Version of Forgotten Forrest)

Custom made maps:
[NMC] Summer Arena
Homeland Rocks ZH v4
Snowy Drought v4
Lagoon ZH v4
Vendetta ZH v1

Results:

Excal vs. Boycah (7-3); 1on1 starting at minute mark 3:27

10$ best feedback: Awaiting feedback.

You need to change the date this February January is gone. Also why 3 players you can have Fargo and logica get more ggs and more feedback.

Well, then a Round Robin would be extra-ordinary long.

What maps would you think are really good for this test on 1.04+?
I mean for testing the core balance?

Reading alone can help...at least sometimes.
We can also have a few Round Robins later.

Add fargo? 4 or 5 players shouldn't be unmanageable. If logica or Vivid wants to join that would be very nice too.

Besides the china mirror (most changed army) as decider, an air mirror would be interesting too because of the chinook price change.

For balance test consistency it's maybe even better to have fixed matchups. With mainly China, Nuke and SWG vs the better armies.

I have decided via Discord with AKA and the players that we want to do this shorter Round Robin. No change in here, but I am free to host more.
Shaye seemed not be the one who actually plays 1.04+ and also in other tourneys he dropped out due to his no arrangement skills.

Will add Summer Arena to the map list.

Any original map, which is quite good?

Well, I will ask them for further rounds for sure. Air-Mirror as 1 choice added.
Fixed mus are quite a good idea and I drafted it somewhere before, but thought it's not what players want to play and the list is quite long and a little complicated when playing these games.

You are a good player....and there is less adaption to the patch.

Your choice.

Now we should focus on the games and the streamer.
Please leave a message here and arrange games.
