RCIV - Pre tournament AI Dev.

1

Hi All,
Would like to have RCIV in Feb 2021, (RCIII was in Feb this year)
The idea is for very similar format as the RCIII

BUT ..

I am thinking of allowing the AI devs to pick the AI factions,
(like the Computer Cup) that way the more apropos faction will be chosen.

I would like for this post thread to be a central point to discuss the playability
of the maps.
And to have all AI's working properly together, (Like as in RCIII - Great job!)
Any dev who prefers to chat in private discord is also fine with me.

The Top 3 AI's from the Computer Cup and Uveso are in gong to be in the Tournament.

Each map there will be anywhere from 2 to 4 AI,
and may be a mix of AI or the same.

Below are the AI's and sub AI's that will be participating in RCIV:

DilliDalli

RNGAI-Standard
RNGAI-Air Standard

Swarm-Terror

Uveso-Adaptive
Uveso-Experimental +
Uveso-Rush

Tournament Rules:
The tourny rules will be almost identical to RCIII.
You can read the rules and view maps from the RCIII tourny below.

Main difference will be that the AI Factions will be pre chosen by devs and myself, instead of allowing players to choose.

Map pool:
Most of the maps will be the same as in the RCIII, and
laid out the same way,

I'll enter DilliDalli and get it to support the nomads faction in the next update (in the next week or so).

What kind of players are you looking for? I played in the computer cup earlier this year and found it to be quite fun-if this is similar then I would love to play here as well

Hi Major,
This tourny (an annual held each year ~ Feb) will be similar to the RainbowCup III. See here:https://forum.faforever.com/topic/858/rainbow-cup-iii-3-v-3-1-2k
It is a 3v3 with AI on map as a "wildcard/disruptor"
There will be 12 teams and the 12 highest rated players, pick teams thru a draft type selection.
See Post #2 of the above link, for the teams that were selected in Feburary:https://forum.faforever.com/topic/858/rainbow-cup-iii-3-v-3-1-2k/2.
The players ranged from our #1 player "Nexus" to 1300 rated range.
We had 12 teams with avg combined rating of 5.8K.
