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).

Hi harzer99,
I have already thought about late signups...
I have seen people in aeolus talk about missing the deadline to register.

I did Not put a "late registry" clause in the Tournament for this year,
so It is Not possible to enter late registrants,
due to players hoping to be able to get a spot.
BUT.
Next years RC IV will have in the registration rules...
that if a player misses the initial registration period....
they will still Not be eligible to be in the draft,
But....
will be able to be placed in the restricted Standby Pool,
until the draft is over, then they would go into the general Stand by Pool for substitution.
And additional players could continue to register
up untill a 2nd cutoff date shortly before the Tournament Date.

This works - as you could still only replace someone with a higher rating,
so this does not really work against the draft systems intent.
(and this allows some higher players Back into the pool,
to more closely replace first round draft picks who can't play and need substitution)

Additional cut off dates, would be required for the 1st day play
and again for the second day play.
I don't mind the registry keeping,
as long as I stipulate this at the beginning of the Tournament.
And I Do want to accommodate as Many players as I can who would like to join.
Early or late 🙂

If you allow people to register after signup is over, and not as a part of the draft, then you allow people to do things like:

  • 2100 guy signs up late
  • is now a sub
  • guy picks a 1300 for their team
  • 1300 strategically forfeits slot
  • now this 2100 is on the team

Ah, didn't see your restriction about the higher rating thing. I still think it leaves the door open for abuse in the form of someone clearly overrated signing up only to forfeit and then getting your pick of a particularly good 1800/1900.

Sub could not be higher rated then the person who drops,,
so to get a 2100 , a 2105+ would have to drop
That Protects from such devious nous

I noticed that sometimes happens.
Trying to get more accurate number on how often it happens.
I just watched 2 replays to the end from Wesh and LimeZ3 that played all the way to end with no problem..
Will have to try a few more to see if we can figure out why.
ps,
I have heard from the faf AI division that the desynch's sometimes happens when a single player plays vs AI,
but does Not happen in multi player games, with the AI.
I have had people join my AI practice games and both replayed to end with no de-synchs.

The Draft is now over and the Teams have been selected.
Congratulations to all who were selected.

The 17 players who were not selected are now in the Stand By pool,
and
if any team is Not able to field 3 Players to play....
Before or during Day 1 or Day 2 of the tournament.

ANY player in the Stand By pool can be chosen as a substitute.

Players in Stand By:
Be prepared for an early call up, and
be ready on the Tournament Days, for any last minute No Shows.

Best o'Luck to All.

Here is How the Maps for the Finals will be chosen:
I wanted one surprise map for finals game 1, that I think will be very entertaining,
and
I didn't want to make the HUGE decision for the last 2 maps that will decide the whole Tournament.
So, I want to leave that to the Players.

This is the idea that I have come up with that should be fair to both teams.

Finals
Match 22 > Game 1
Finals - Game 1 Map - Will be a surprise,
released "Shortly" before launch.
Training and Preparation got you here,
Playing on the fly will win this one!
.
Finals
Match 22 > Games 2 & 3
Games 2 and 3 maps will be chosen by the Captains as follows:
Each Captain will send list of 8 map numbers, from the map pool to veto.
The remaining maps will be vetoed 1 at a time until 3 maps are left,
and then high seed Captain will pick "Odds or Evens"
The winner of the "Odds or Evens" roll, will then choose the map
to play for Game 2.
Odds or Evens will be decided on Aeolus by using the command - !roll -.
If a game 3 is needed, the other Captain,
will choose one of the remaining 2 maps to play.
(the 3rd remaining map will be used if a Tie Break is needed.)
