"First" Yellow Submarine Tournament - Sunday June 9th, 20GMT

Post by Peat »

Drunk Duck is organising a Yellow Submarine tournament via the Armagetron.co.uk forums here. Unfortunately, as far as I know you have to register to view the thread. Not that many people have signed up so far so I thought I'd try and help Duck out by making a thread here.

The tournament is at 20:00 GMT on Sunday the 9th of June. Signups close on the 6th (this Thursday). This is the same day as Brawl, but quite a lot later so there shouldn't be any problems there.

Not sure if it's original or new Yellow Sub settings, but I assume the latter.

It should be a nice fun tournament. I think this is the first one Drunk Duck has organised so go easy on her! :P

We are very happy to announce...

Oops.. I know that deep down, I just keep forgetting :?

I don't know what will happen about subs. It's worth asking Duck in the thread.

Hey all and thank you Peat for making a thread here :)

There is last 5 free spots left. And the servers will be with the new YS settings, so 8 rubber and bigger cycle delay.

ConVicT, If someone drops out before the tournament, i will message you and you tell me if you can play. Basically there is always somebody who can't play so i might let you know couple hours before tourney :)

If you have any questions, you can ask here or on the grid :)

Since "MESSAGE_OF_DAY" is a setting, then i guess it's "Don't complain about closing".

Could you please tell me where to go after winning/losing in server 3? Noob13's post only mentions server 1 and 2 from what I grasped.

3 servers (8 players each). Top 4 from each server (12 players) will move on to semifinal (2 servers, 6 players each). Top 3 players from each semi final server moves on to final battle, so 6 players in finall battle. All matches will be to 40 points.

My english kinda sucks, so i hope it sounds clear to you :D

After round 1, players who came first and third will go to server 1, players who came second and fourth will go to server 2.
This applies to all three servers in round 1, after which there are only two.

Ah, got it. Peat and some others already asked this and Duck answered, but I thought it's better if you clear it up here, beforehand: how do you handle ties? What if the 4th, 5th and 6th guy get the same points? Bonus match with smaller point limit (where everyone else can still take part to reach the first place and move on)?
