RCV ~ Masters of AI Tournament Dev


Hi All,
The "Rainbow Cup V" - 3 v 3 v AI Tournament
is tentatively scheduled for Sept 24th/25th, and Oct 1st 2022,
(RCIV was Feb/Mar, 2022)
The tournament will be a similar format to the RCIII + IV,

Each map will have anywhere from 2 to 4 AI,
there will be 22 maps.

Below are the 7 AI's that will be participating in RCV:

AI: DilliDalli
Sorian AI edit and


I would like for this post thread to be a place to discuss the
playability of the maps.

Each AI will play on 3 maps, all within the same bracket of tourney.


Tournament Rules:
Tournament will be a 3v3 player tourney with AI added in 2-4 spawn sites

Day 1, will have 3 different AI's participate,
with each AI playing in 3 games of same bracket.
Day 2, will have 3 different AI from day 1, and
also each have 3 games/maps in their own bracket.
Semi Finals and Finals will be mix of 3 best performing AI's

AI Factions will be pre-chosen.


Wish List


Map pool:

Day 1 - 3 Bo3's will have 9 maps.

Day 2 - 3 Bo3's will have 9 maps.

Finals day - 1 Bo3 and 1 Bo7,

Am always on lookout for good 3 v 3 v AI maps,
submit any for consideration please.

AI modders are encouraged to find and test 3 maps from the below 42 Maps,
and submit the map name.
I will then test the maps and fill one bracket of tourney with those 3 maps.
Lock up the fun maps before the others do, and if your able to play water maps, try picking mix of land and water and 10x and 20x maps.

Choose maps from pool below or submit one of your own.

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


As of now I am planning on each AI to play in one Bo3 bracket.
With the top 2 AI's in the Semi-Finals and Finals.


Lily Pads is a 3 team map. You can put the AIs on the smaller islands.


A work of art is never finished, merely abandoned


points for lots based on a teamgame tourney with ai lol


LotS is a 1v1 tournament meant to pick out the best player of the year, this is a teamgame tournament that isn't even between just 2 teams. You might as well as give out LotS points for winning a 16 player Claustrophobia FFA, in fact that one would probably be more relevant to LotS since at least it's 1 person teams.


@ftxcommando Thanks ftx, That makes sense. Will scratch that request.


@Fearghal Please also get in contact with the Promotions team so we can see what we can do to promote it in the new year after LotS

@rowey Thanks Rowey,
It's early now, but it takes a lot of time to set up, and map balance.
Last year I rushed it, and want to do it better this year.
I will Definitely get in touch with the promotions team right after the Lots Tourny!


@Fearghal with it beeing a few months out if you like we can post a Tournamet trailer to the faf YouTube as a mean of promotion if you know somone who or if somone is willing to put one together with your input 😄

@fearghal Yes please! I would be more than happy to create banners, stream overlays and possibly a trailer for the tournament! Just reach out to me (and the promotions team) after LoTS!
