See those? Those are the new dedicated, official, Tournament & Event servers. We’ll be using them in the very near future to host tournaments, events and even Leagues. That’s not chadztime™ either, it’ll be soon.

Many of us feel that, contrary to popular belief, this community can support (and even grow from) these types of events. Unfortunately, there are a few problems that keep these types of events from being successful, such as: the lack of organization and proper promotion, few participants or not enough teams, outdated servers, and finally subpar rewards. Fortunately though, we’ve identified the hindrances and believe they can be addressed.

With that in mind, as well as the recent success of Panos’ Duel Tournament, we felt that we should give such things the support they deserve. That is, providing official support, and not just the kind where you host a server and consider your job done. We know we need to get everyone involved and that it’s not good enough to just get people already in clans, and those who already consider themselves exceptionally skilled, but the average player as well. Because of this, we’re going further, much further, than just setting up the server and calling it a day.

Each tournament will have Heirloom Points, Gold and more as rewards. Since we realize we need people from all different skill levels participating, we’re not restricting rewards to just 1st-3rd place, and we’ll even be holding raffles for people spectating matches. Oh, and by “more”, I mean the real prizes. Winners will be rewarded with unique event items that can’t be bought from the shop. Right now we have the Crowned Helm as a unique reward, but we’ll also be giving each winner the opportunity to add their name to any item of their choosing, and we’ll likely also expand the pool of unique event items as things progress.

Bagge & I will be opening team registrations for the First Official EU cRPG Tournament sometime within the next week, and with an NA side beginning shortly after. Now, as with all my posts like this, it’s time to involve the community. The Event servers will have a separate admin team from the other official servers. Therefore, aside from requesting just your feedback, we’d also like anyone interested in becoming an Official Event/Tournament Admin, to use this thread to submit your application in the following format:

Code: [Select]
Character name:
Ban history(within the last year):
Why you're applying:
Your region(NA/EU/etc.):

Finally, with that, I hope everyone can feel confident that we really are taking this seriously.

Official Event & Tournament Rules:

  • All of the Official Rules apply.
  • No interrupting a match that is in progress.
    • OK: Observing a match from spectators.
    • NOT OK: Joining a team while a match is in progress.
       
  • No disrupting Events.
    • NOT OK: disrupting a planned event because you want to practice/scrim.
    • NOT OK: Spawning, but intentionally ignoring event rules.

I’ll be updating this as things progress further, so don’t assume that since you haven’t seen something listed here, it isn’t a rule.

irl something shorted on the shuttle and laika overheated and died within a few hours of liftoff and for a brief while one could look up to the stars and see a light shooting across the sky that was actually a warm dog corpse slingshoting about the earth at thousands of miles per hour which was arguably humanity's greatest achievement so far

This looks amazing, faith in devs restored. Also:
Character name: Horns
Ban history(within the last year): I believe one ban from last strat that is almost a year old for delaying/leeching I think.
Why you're applying:This looks like something that could really help the community and I want to help out.
Your region(NA/EU/etc.): NA

Once again, good work Tydeus and devs, last thing I expected to be in the works.

Wonderful news, it's great to see this kind of activity. I hope everything works without a hitch and thank you for your work.

Please don't let any of the unique items be as stupid as the flaming katana however.

Looks very promising, should hopefully get a few people more active. 

Just one question, is there going to be a nations vs nations tournament like 8v8?

It's a possibility. I know Bagge is highly interested in a cRPG Nations Cup, this was one of the first things he mentioned to me when we first started discussing this. This first tournament is mostly just to help gauge the potential. We're hoping that we can even draw more people in with the spectator raffle thing(haven't entirely decided how we're going to work this. How often do you receive a ticket for the raffle? Should the prize be drawn at the end of the match or end of the tournament/league/event?).

I think you need to make the "special" items unsellable so we don't get any crazy auctions that crash the market.

Will titles be given? For example the winner of the tournament could be the Champion of the Donkey /chadzia/whatever for a certain period of time.
And the items, will they be permanent, or until someone takes their place in a new tournament? Since if you start giving them away and people can keep it, then eventually pretty much everybody will have one of the "exclusive" items, much like it happened with looms.
And will they be tradeable in the marketplace? For what Rhuarc said.

Applying
Character name: Moncho
Ban history(within the last year): None iirc.
Why you're applying: I would like to help when I can, these are a good idea for the community, and I hate when people start interfering and being asses while something is happening.

I agree with this. Account bound.

Sounds promising. Gonna be fun...

I can do staff if there's need for it.
When west germany annexed east germany, nobody moved a finger too.
