RE: This game seems to have too many pointless weapons

The reason several units have memetic AA (see Fatboy and Monkey) is partly so yhose units don’t get memed by T1 Bombers and similar units.

There is a place for a discussion to be had with the meme weapons. To be frank. I’d rather see them improved then removed. Like UEF Frigate AA basically pointless. If we made it not so? I mean I don’t know the stats but you’d need to condense and find them all

2021 Summer Invitational Qualifier

Hello and welcome to the Qualifier Tournament for the 2021 Summer Invitational. The winners of this tournament will fill up the remaining slots in the group stage as well as determine substitutes. Players who have received invites are not eligible to participate (a list of invites can be found here).

This is going to be a 1v1 Double Elimination bracket with BO3 games in the winners bracket and BO1 games in the losers bracket. The bracket will be seeded based on ladder rating. Each BO3 will consist of a 5x5, 10x10, and 20x20, played in that order.

There is no maximum number of signs ups for this tournament, the number of BO1s vs BO3s in the winners bracket will be adjusted to ensure a timely tournament.

All standard tournament rules apply. In the event of a tie in position occurs (ie 7-8th) which is needed to determine whether a player will advance to the group stage, a BO1 will be played to determine who advances. Signups will close 15 minutes before the start time.

Date: July 10th
Start Time: 14:00 UTC

2021 Summer Invitational

Hello and welcome to the 2021 Summer Invitational Tournament. The 2nd annual Summer Invitational is a top level 1v1 tournament featuring a series of invited players and an open qualifier to find the top 16 players on FAF. For those who are not familiar, there will be series of invites sent out to previous tournament winners, and an open qualifier on July 10th to fill the remainder of the 16 slots. This is followed by a group stage on July 17th where the top 8 players will advance to a single elimination playoff bracket on July 24th-25th whose winners will receive prizes and glory, including LoTS qualification points! (See here for details)

All tournaments will be casted on twitch.tv/faflive starting at 14:00 UTC.

What’s changed?
The open qualifier no longer has a maximum number of players so everyone who signs up for the qualifier is guaranteed to play in it. The number of BO3s vs BO1s will be adjusted to accommodate the number of signups to ensure the tournament finishes in a reasonable timeframe.
The order of games in group stage was changed to put the 2nd seed vs 3rd seed game last.

The qualifier:
This is an open qualifier, all players who have not received invites are welcome to participate. It will be a double elimination tournament with BO3s in the winner's bracket and BO1s in the loser's bracket. Maps will be selected by myself from a pool for each round. Players will be seeded by ladder rating at the time of signup.

The group stage:
This will consist of 4 groups of 4 players playing a round robin style tournament with the top 2 of each group advancing. Games will be BO3s. Groups will first be seeded by Invitational points, then the qualified players will get to pick their group. Maps will be chosen by players from a pool of 10 using a veto/pick system with 2 vetoes each, players will make alternating vetoes and picks with loser seed vetoing first and higher seed picking first. Faction veto will also be used.

The playoffs:
This is a single elimination tournament with all BO5 matches expect for the championship match which will be BO7. Maps are chosen by players in a pick/veto system from a pool of 15 with 3 vetoes each, players will make alternating vetoes and picks. Players advancing from the group stage can submit one map to the finals bracket map pool (subject to Tournament Director veto). Faction veto will also be used. There first two rounds of the Playoffs will be played on Saturday and the 3rd place and championship match will be played on Sunday. The 3rd place match will start at 14:00 UTC and the championship match will follow it.

Invitational points:
Invitational points have been updated with results of major tournaments since the Spring Invitational, all players have lost 25% (rounded up) of their points for decay, and then 8 points were given for 1st place in the Spring Invitational, 6 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd, 2 for 4th, and 1 for 5th-8th. 2 points were also given for 1st and 1 point for 2nd in the April and June League Invitational. This produced the following list of 13 invites:
