I am confused now tbh, are the official picks tomorrow (Sunday) or in 1 week (then I have no issues what so ever)?

Was going to start the draft tomorrow,
and have all votes in.
But we can take a longer period to make sure all Captains have the time they need
State your selection if you are sure,
if Not let us know you need a couple of days for the 1st or 2nd pick
We can work case by case with each Capt

Okay, thanks, much appreciated since I am going skiing tomorrow and I just wouldn't be able to actively participate in the picking process.

There is a week allotted to picking players for your team though? The point of the timetable idea/some sort of max time to spend on your pick was to prevent the situation of a guy just going afk for 5 days and coming back.

Lol, sorry, My persistance and number of times I posted and broke aeolus has paid off.
We now have a very nice pool of players and standbys.

Remember Captains do NOT have to pick in order and you can Still get picked.
The draft process is going to take a few days for the Capt's to make contact with players and choose.

All people Not picked in the draft can still substitute on Day 2 of the Tournament.
Hope you get your shot, And THANKS for signing up!

.
Update edit:
YOU spoke too soon - You got In! Congrats.

Can you please change the format of teams in post
from this

F-Odin...................................1978-c..................BigBang-1792
BigBang................................1792 <-----1st round pick by: F-Odin

to this

  • F-Odin [1978] (C) - BigBang [1792] + nextplayer [rating]

  • BigBang [1792] - [1st] round pick by [F-Odin]

or smt like that... =/ Its really annoying. This is just a tip

....so must I convince someone to be part of my team now...?

You pick a player from the 24 people that aren’t captains. The degree of discussion you want to have with said players is your own prerogative.

Only thing to keep in mind is that the pick process is intended to last a week. So don’t spend several days holding up the process because you need to ask everyone their favorite music genre.

0

Another thing, please join/look at the FAF discord if you’re a captain. I will be pinging captains when they need to make their pick and it will generally speed the process along when everyone can be reached from a single, central location.

Currently Achieved is the only person not on the FAF Discord.

No.......
you do Not have too.
The draft is a means to handicap and make the tournament more balanced.
Players in the draft pool, Must accept their draft or not play, they can not pass.

This would disrupt the whole concept of the Draft.

Thanks for your pick.

The draft is now temporarily paused,
for AFK and research reasons.
We expect to resume draft tonight or tomorrow morning.

Everyone else.......
take the time today to contact players
and discuss your tourny game plans.

Best o'Luck to all

Multiplyer is standart x2?

Multiplyer is standart x2?

The Cheat and Build multipliers will be left at the default 2.0,
unless specifically set in the options section of each game map.

Right now we have 2 set options for Every game:*
1- Full share
2- Auto generate markers always
*Any other options will be marked with a yellow 'dot' on the map.

Make sure all 4 mods are loaded for every game,
as the AI mods work integrally together with markers and such.

Sim speed ++ means normal speed of time and refers to a performance improvement?

Yes, I believed it replaced the mod - "Quality of Performance."
It cuts down on the number of particles produced on certain effects to help keep PC's from slowing down as much.

It is common mod for multiplayer games.

I suppose you refer to cancer games. I know signups are closed but I am up to sub as well (probably subbing for a sub then).

There are multiple players who have asked to be put on the standby list since the draft period has ended.

So, I am opening the tournament to new players who would like a "chance" to play.
Players who wish to play will be put on a "Restricted" Standby list and still have an opportunity to play.
The way the Standby list and the Restricted Standby list will work is as follows:

ANY player on the pre draft - Standby list can fill in for anyone no matter the rating differential.
A player on the 'restricted' standby list can Only fill in for a player with a higher rating.

ie: A 1640 rated player drops out and needs replacement -
the team captain can choose an 1800 player from the standby list or
a player rated 1639 or lower from the restricted list.

So....... If you missed the initial draft and still would like a chance at play,
We now have additional players on the restricted list.
Sign up now for the restricted standby list.
