RCVI ~ 3v3vAI ~ Tournament Dev

2

Hi All,
The "Rainbow Cup VI" - 3 v 3 v AI Tournament
is scheduled for Mar 11/12 and 18th 2023,
The tournament will be a similar format to the previous RC's,

Each map will have anywhere from 1 to 4 AI,
there will be 21 maps.

Below are the 4 AI's that will be participating in RCV:

AI-Uveso
M27AI
RNGAI
AI: DilliDalli

.

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

Please report any problems you detect on this thread, thanks

Here are some of the maps I am considering for upcoming RC.

L,W,A,+I += Land, Water, Air + Islands
.

Would appreciate any play-testing feedback about
the AI's on any of these maps.
Check to see that they act properly, and very importantly....
expand equally outwards towards enemy teams,
eco similarly, and that the ACU's also perform well.

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

Nomads concept has been scrapped.

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

This Rainbow Cup will be an "open" tournament and is
expected to have participants rated 1800+

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

The map has to be symmetrical about the AI's base.
Here the 2 "players" islands would not be the same distance from
the AI's island, so this map type would not work.

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.

@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!
