Current updated Challonge bracket below.
When submitting "team name" - try to keep to 20 characters or less to
be able to fit whole name in brackets. Thanks
I don't know if any one else mentioned, but there's certainly some issues with starting locations on some of the maps not being symmetrical. Would you like some help fixing that?
Hi @Conorach, Thank You very much for the offer to help, but..
The Rainbow Cup tournaments have been using variable start spawns for the last 2 Tournaments and for this one also.
It's a 3 way FFA of sorts and players can strategize their line ups for each map.
Many maps "only" have 3 start spawns, but
many maps also have from 4-6 starting spawn sites to choose from.
ie: Map #1 - (which has been the starting map for RC III - V)
Here you can spawn in any of the 5 "open" spawns available.
(if the map, labels them closed, than you can not choose those spots)
See post #2 at top of this forum,
for the tournament rules, explaining team colors, mods, maps and
the directions each captain should know to be able to host the game lobby and
set the options properly:
This is the from the "Directions" section, in Post #2:
When there are > 3 "open" start spawns,
follow this procedure to select team starting positions:
1 - !Roll - winner chooses to be: "team 1" or "team 2".
2- Team 1 - chooses side of map, team color, and set's up first.
3- Team 2 - sets up second.
4- Team 1 - can then choose to play "as is", Or
----has an option for a "One time only/permanent" position change.
5- Team 2 - can then play "as is", Or
----make a Final positional change. (get the last move)
6- Position AI, set Factions, and color them Green.
7- Close any open positions
8- Launch Game.
If any one else would also like to help out....
You can do so, by..... reporting any bugs or desynchs to
the AI Discord channel Bug reports and issue's section, here:
The AI department is very welcoming and helpful.
Please briefly discribe the issue, and if possible please include the
game replay link, and the game log.
Any issues you may find, will help this tourny run more smoothly.
Ahh it makes sense now. Thanks for letting us understand. We can choose where in the 5 spots we wish to spawn!
Great Thanks so much @Fearghal !
when preparing and strategizing for the upcoming battles...
remember that the game scenario's posted so far, are "early" intelligence reports.
We still have a few days, before we make contact with enemy.
Our enemies are dynamic, and on the move.
Battle lines are still being drawn.
Forces may be stronger or weaker than expected,
the enemy may have even changed locations,
it's also quite possible that... there may be more enemy bases present then expected.
Prepare as best as you can.
Learn the maps, and be ready for everything and anything possible.
We will not know with certainty what awaits us until about 1 day before battles commence.
(when updated map scenario's will be released)
A good commander, Will adapt to unforeseen circumstances and come out on top.
Day One is going to be all 10x10 Land maps.
Day Two and Three will have some water maps and some 20x20 maps.
Here are the maps being used as of today:
*L, W, A + I = Land, Water, Air and Island type maps.
