Greetings to each and every fan of the Supreme Commander: Forget Alliance. A new tournament of an unusual format is being published today. The Nightmare tournament will take place on Jule 3 at 14: 00 GMT.
All your units, buildings are completely devoid of direct vision. Because you are surrounded by total darkness.
The only way to get information is to build a radar.
Each faction is unique in its own way in this mode, their potential is revealed.
Example of one of the games #14701208

The duration of the tournament, players must log in to the #nightmare IRC chat .
For any additional questions, please email me discord kite#4399 or here on the forum
To participate in the tournament, just write about it below.
The tournament will use a special sim mod "Blind" from mod creator 4z0t, for which he is very grateful. The mod is already available in the FAF client. The mod removes direct Vision from almost all units, which reveals the game in a new way. This is a completely different perception of the game. You can deceive the enemy using the army of scouts.
We want the tournament to be available to more players and the games to be interesting, so we added a modest restriction on retying.
In each round, the games go up to one win (BO1)
The tournament is played in the FFA format. There are 4 people in each group. The winner advances to the next round.
The prize pool.
The prize pool is available at the moment, but it may change a lot if the FAF players and the viewers of my Youtube channel support this tournament.
1st place-unique avatar + $ 21 (1500 rubles)
2nd place - avatar face + $ 14 (1000 rubles)
3rd place-avatar logo
The tournament will take place if there are more than 16 players.

I believe that one of the main reasons for FAF is the toxicity of players. People watch streamers or casters, learn to be toxic from them. People see the behavior of high-ranked players and succumb to it. If everyone in the game tries to help everyone else, then the community will only bloom and grow. Propaganda of aggression on streams or in videos (not of an entertainment nature) should be punished. The less FAF will have toxicity, anger, aggression, the more pleasant it will be for us.
I also believe that everyone in the FAF is trying to "pull the blanket over themselves". More than 90% of players believe that they are stronger than everyone else and there is no one stronger than them. This is what makes the generation of FAF idiots grow up, trying to appear strong when they aren't. Only small circles of people support each other. The rest, in turn, only hate everything that others do, when they themselves can not do anything to promote.
Thank you for your attention!
No matter what anyone says about me in the FAF community, I treat people with respect both as players and as individuals. At a certain point, I reviewed my opinion on the FAF community and noticed that at the level of "player-player" communication, a million disagreements arise, which in the future lead to various kinds of insults, and later reports on each other. It looks like some kind of childish narcissism.
99% of players believe that they are the best. And when faced with people who believe that everyone around is not able to do anything, it plunges me into a wild shock. People measure their skills, this is absolutely normal. But it is normal exactly as long as it does not turn into insults or mockery.
I once spoke out about the toxicity between players. I have expressed everything that I think about it without hiding anything. Players strive to be like their idols. Russian Russian is what I'm talking about right now, because I speak Russian myself and I can't speak for other segments of the Earth. Players see that streamers are allowed to insult other players with any words and they do not get anything for it. And the next day, they're covering you with all the possible phrases they've learned from the streamers.
Having gained a small influence among the Russian-speaking FAF, I came out with the signature #AntiToxic, which you can see now in my discord. Seeing this, the players noticed the hope in my face. Thank you to them that they follow my antitoxic movement and do not go on about the toxic compound.

What you want to collaborate on:
I think I'm quite talented at creating tournaments with an unusual format. For example, "Deaf Archon" or the upcoming tournament "The Nightmare Tournament". I'd love to do more of them, but I'm on a budget. I think that no one will participate in tournaments without prize money. People don't have the motivation to do this.
Your preferred method of contact:
I can always be easily found in discord or in FAF if I'm online. If I'm not busy, I'll answer pretty quickly.
Your experience/skill level:
I can't say that I have any great experience. I started participating in the community about six months ago. I can probably speak well in public(but you can argue with that). I have a little experience in organizing and participating in tournaments.
What types of collaborators you want to work with:
I've already worked with some of the mod creators, such as Eternal- (Dark Archon mod) and 4z0t(aka Ctrl-Knob) (Blind mod for "The Nightmare tournament"). I hope that we can continue to work on new mods for new non-standard tournaments.
But I am always glad to have new and fresh minds for the implementation of the most strange and crazy ideas, of which I have a lot. I hope you will see this in the future.
Currently intent to work on but not alone:
We are currently working on the Blind mod for "The Nightmare Tournament" along with the aforementioned 4z0t. The next project may be:
I really have a lot of ideas, but so far I don't have enough skills in lua to implement them.

@FemtoZetta for this tournament I was allocated 12 accounts on the test server for a trial tournament. only the director and FAF administrators will know who is playing under which account
sing me up plz
@archsimkat yes, this function is really broken
I conducted an anonymous survey on the topic of toxicity. So far, only in the ru-segment ( it's easier for me to perceive the answers this way ). Most of the respondents suggested giving mutas in the game chat. You can see the discussions of this topic here: https://forum.faforever.com/topic/1813/collaborative-contribution-in-faf/2
Or read it in the FAF offline discord in the FAF Association section
@morax no, I'm not trying to get moderator status with this post. I applied to become a moderator, but any information about this has died down. I would be happy to help sort out the reports with all the rigor of the law and complete composure.
just want to make our community more friendly towards players towards each other. I'm not talking about the statements of streamers on their broadcasts. I would be happy to raise this question, if you are interested in it. it seems to me that he also requires his attention.
in addition, I want to add that the players do not observe the active work of moderation, because only 1 moderator works. it becomes harder and harder to tolerate this toxicity.
When I try to be kind to the players, and they shit on me in the chat or in private messages, what should I answer them? should I start being like them? this question has been bothering me since I started actively participating in the life of the community. maybe you will say that you do not know me, maybe it is so. I have not yet achieved high results in tournaments or got into any elections. but I try to promote antitoxicity with my hashtag on streams and in ru-discords.
@morax some players behave unacceptably. mixing others with dirt. in turn, the following begin to behave the same way. and this snowball will ever get up in the throat of the FAF community
I would like to propose to make a group of activists in our community called AntiToxic. Now I myself am learning this skill, to be calm, reasonable, correct and kind. The purpose of this group is to monitor the integrity of the communication between the players on the FAF forum and during the gameplay. I think that would be an interesting idea.
@conorach uef only
