AIR TOURNAMENT! First ever CRS supported player competition!

40 posts in this topic

Soon after 1.29 is released to live server, the first ever tournament will be held, the winner will receive a free month and/or T-shirt.

(While this is only for AIR war, if successful the possibility for ground and naval tournaments are likely)

This is a trial for a full scale tournament.

If the participation and organization go well, this may become another exciting opportunity for the player base to enjoy the uniqueness of this game world!

The rules are in the final stages of being finalized, CRS is fully aware and is supporting it.

The competition will involve at least 3 different matches, using the equipment from 1.29 in combinations of Rank and Tier.

The list can be found here:

http://wiki.battlegroundeurope.com/index.php/Rank_and_Tier_table

Let me emphasize:

There may be matches where players can only use Tier-0, Rank-0 (T-0\R-0) equipment!

Yes, that means Hurricane I or Hawk 75 versus a 109E-1!

OR T-1\R-3 Spit Ib or H-81 versus a 109E-4!

So start practicing using those new aircraft!

Of course there will be other match ups, and the combination includes your favorites!

EVENTS (each win a prize)

Single fighter vs fighter

Team fighter vs fighter (2 pilots per team for each side (note, must be same country, no French/UK mix))

Bombing skill and timed event (bombing factories, most hit in shortest time)

Possible:

CAS event

Factory bombing vs defender

Battling bomber (surprise)

This is ONLY an announcement.

Details on the rules will be forthcoming (by week end if all goes well).

Meanwhile, practice with the new aircraft and new tier structure.

And may be Best Person and Team win!

Their are 3 tournaments.

2 of the tournaments involve 5 matches, scores totaled from each.

3ed is a skills and timed event.

Winners will receive a free month!

Basic Rules

Both sides engage at the specified altitude, +/- 50m (150ft).

Combat continues until shot down, CTD, or Alt-F4 then considered lost.

In case of ramming, both sides considered lost, and match is counted as 0. If an elimination, competitors are changed and redone (if happens again, the player with 2ed ram is disqualified).

Special rules:

Will be noted by each system and set.

Time:

Point earning matches are less depended on a schedule.

Elimination matches will be scheduled with two or more check in times so it can to be run over a few hours or days. If players fail to show up at least to pre-arranged number, they are disqualified.

Timed events will have a set times and must be run in a certain period. More then one start time for the timed events start time can scheduled, but a player can only do the event once. It is VITAL to take a screen shot of the mission for scoring!

Contenders:

Those that check in are added to a pool of contenders, and they are chosen for a match.

Must play all levels in a set.

Each player has 6 matches to a set.

Points will be earned per match, all will have a total.

Competitors will agree on what type to play, but no player can do the same class and Tier twice.

Those with most points wins (obviously).

Equipment is based on the set, what is available is from the Rank and Tier table:

=====----------=====----------=====----------=====----------=====----------

Need at least 10 sign ups for each for the tourney to be a GO

At least 5 axis, 5 allied players, need to balanced.

More is better!

With bombers, there is no side requirement, can be all DB, or all 111's, so pick a type you feel best at!

Should be finished in less then 3 hours (I hope! :o )

(You can ask questions on rules as well as post sign up).

A poll question:

I am considering that Multi place fighters (Blen If and Bf-110) can get a TG for crew, but those players do not get any credit for the match, win for loose.

Yea or Nay?

I'm in.

Is it only recruits and rookies that can take part in the 1 v 1 competition?

Anyone can play, but only recruit and rookie toys for the fixed competition. NOTE, you still have an unlimited type in the match.

The one who get the most points in each Tourney wins!

(everyone flies each set of 5)

Uh, guys, I know you are all eager, but please:

WHICH event?

single fighter

team fighter?

bomber?

all 3? (not sure if we have time for all that).

Fighters have 5 matches

Bombers will take about 2 hours.

Well, looks like the bombing trouney is just about a GO.

Get a few more of the DB's signed up (and I not mean DB-7,lol).

The more we can get in at the same time, the better.

JUST to make it clear:

You are to drop on as many factories as possible. 8 is best score (btw, NO RELOAD, but you do not have time to do that anyway). If we get ties on fac hit, then it goes to best time.

You can approace and hit the factories anyway you like.

It will be best to make your own mission, so you can set up waypoints the way you like them.

I'll be in for the single fighter event I think, unless I fly wingman with mevan. I am not really understanding the format for it though. Is it 1v1 or 6v6 but each person gets their own score?

Just found the post in the Hangar - am I too late?

If not, put me in for all tourneys - if a hassle, just put me in for DB7s.
