Server settings


For the Servers that are hosted for the first round, we please you to stick to the following server settings:

  • Mode: Cup

  • Warmup duration: 2

  • Disable Respawn: Yes

  • Points: 500 (you play 7 rounds on all 3 maps, therefore the limit doesn't matter - only must be high)

  • Rounds/Challenge: 7

  • Cup Winners: 0


  • To get the correct point distribution, you can use the following commands on the server:
  • Xaseco: /admin rpoints 10,6,4,3

  • Fast: /cup custom 10,6,4,3


  • Map order for Round 1:
    1st map: New Generation
    2nd map: Milano Star
    3rd map: ReckLess


    Additional information
    When you are doing some warmup rounds in CUP mode, and the players are already receiving points, then you have a small problem: even if you do a normal ingame restart the players' points won't go down to 0, which means you can't start the war!
    To prevent this problem, the map must be restarted via RCP/Admin Panel, then the points will go down to 0 again!
    If you don't have access to RCP/Admin Panel, then the best solution is to keep the server in ROUND mode until the war starts. Don't drive any round in CUP mode. Before you are starting the war, just switch the mode then; commands:
  • Xaseco: /admin setgamemode cup

  • Fast: /adm mode cup


  • One slot available again!!


    One slot just got free so if anybody is still interested in playing this Cup, please write a simple comment under this news and you can play it! You would play in Group 7!



    More information:
  • We again want to say that you should not pay too much attention to the Tournament Tree. For the first round you will find all information there, but we probably won't be able to keep the Tree up to date during the Cup. But don't worry, all information for the second, third and fourth round will be online and visible in this News on Tuesday before the Cup starts. We will already post the server details for all further matches. Therefore just take a regular look at this News post and you won't miss any important information

  • For the matches that will be hosted by the players we will give you information about the correct server settings soon

  • We earlier mentioned that we will create a "sheet" were all important information can be found. After a new consideration we came to the conclusion that it won't be needed. As written above, all important things will be here in the News soon

    Advanced Information


    We decided to make the first Cup - but also the second and third that will be announced here later - a single player Cup. However, it won't be a usual 1on1 Cup. We decided to use the 1on1on1on1 system because it's way more attractive in our eyes. But there is one problem: there is unfortunately no specific Tournament Tree for this system. Therefore you will see a simple 1on1 elimination tree.

    But what it is even more important and should be mentioned aswell:
    As most of you know we had major changes in the Admin staff in 2011. Now we have a small but compact team with Admins who weren't really active in the Tech scene as Admins before the EMS/CAP started, or weren't ESL Admins at all. And one thing that we will try to do is "going new ways". We will try out new things and will change some stuff. Our target is of course to get a better working section and to keep TMNF up. But when trying new things, we already know for sure now that not everything can go right. So there will be things going wrong, though we do our best to avoid that by calculating everything as good as possible. One of the new things is here now: we will use the 1on1on1on1 system for this Night Cup and not the classic 1on1 system. So feel free to share your thought about it. Do you appreciate this small step, or is it bad? On the other hand we will have this little problem as mentioned above, there's no specific Tournament Tree for our system. So we will also try our something new here. We don't know if it will work as we except it, if it's going to be a success. However, we want to try new things and we will see how it goes. We deeply hope that you will appreciate it! :)


    So how will it work?

    The first thing is as usual: we create the Cup and you sign yourself up. As soon as the maximum amount of players (32 for the first Cup) is reached, the players will be seeded. But as the Tournament Tree will only show matches between two players, we will use the following system: the 4 players who are seeded to the top (positions 1, 32, 17, 16) will play in group A. The 4 players below them (positions 9, 24, 25, 8) will play in group B and so on. Therefore we will have 8 groups with 4 players each.

    Now the top2 of each group advance to the next round. In other words: the top2 from group A will play against the top2 from group B. Then again the top2 advance to the next round and in the end there will be 4 players left, who will play the grand final!

    Little note: it will be Single Elimination, that means there won't be a loser bracket.


    As the ESL Tournament Tree won't work, where can the information about the groups, and all other neccessary information be seen?

    We will create a sheet where you will always see an actual version of the Tournament Tree. There you will also find the Server information (location, login, passwords etc). This sheet doesn't exist yet. But we will create it soon! It is unbelievable important that you take a look at it all the time after you've finished a match!
    So you don't really have to pay attention to the Tournament Tree. It is only used to the seed the players for the first round. All other information for the first round and all upcoming rounds can be found on the sheet then!


    How will a match look like?

    Every match will be driven by 4 players. All 3 maps will be played at every match. On every map 7 rounds will be played, after 2 warmup rounds. The normal Cup system will be used: that means the player winning a round gets 10 points, the player reaching the second place in a round gets 6 points for this run, the third placed player get 4, and the last placed player 3 points. After the 21 rounds the 2 players with the most points advance to the next round!
    There will be a specific map order for all rounds. It will look like that:

    Round 1
    1st map: New Generation
    2nd map: Milano Star
    3rd map: ReckLess

    Round 2
    1st map: Milano Star
    2nd map: ReckLess
    3rd map: New Generation

    Round 3
    1st map: ReckLess
    2nd map: New Generation
    3rd map: Milano Star

    Grand Final
    1st map: New Generation
    2nd map: Milano Star
    3rd map: ReckLess

    If we are able to host every single match, then we will configure the servers correctly for every single round.


    What happens if 2 or more players have the same amount of points after 21 rounds?

    Incase that should happen, 3 decider runs will be driven on the 1st map, only between the players who have the same amount of points of course. If there is still no final decision then, this system will be repeated as long as a final ranking exists.


    What happens if a player doesn't arrive in time?

    All matches are set to a fixed time: the first round starts at 18.00 CET, the second round at 19.00 CET, the third round at 20.00 CET and the fourth and final round starts at 21.00 CET. Incase not all players are present in time, you have to wait at least 10 minutes for this player. After those 10 minutes the player is disqualified and you can start the match without him. Exceptions are possible here, but only in special situations with the Admins' confirmation.


    What happens if a player disconnects during a round?

    The round will be finished and counts. Afterwars this player has 5 minutes to reconnect. If he doesn't arrive in time, the match has to continue without him. If several disconnections delay the match, please try to contact us on IRC in case noone of the Admins is present at your match.


    Where to post the results?

    Please write the results of your groups into the IRC channel #esl.tm
    There you will always find Admins who take care of everything. Please also think about doing screenshot of all map results so there is a proof incase it will be needed.


    Who will host the servers?

    We will try to organise all servers on our own. For the second round 4 servers will be needed; that won't be a problem. But for the first round there will be 8 matches at the same time, and we don't know for sure yet if we will have 8 servers. We will give you more information about that as soon as possible.


    Will there be a match referee/Admin present at all matches?

    The answer is unfortunately no. Most of all in the first round we can't be present at all matches. We will try to check everything though via rcp, and will join the different servers from time to time. However, IRC support will be active as always. Visit us at #esl.tm


    What's next?

    Are you tired of serious events? You had better check our news in the next weeks. We would like to make your winter time!

    Really good idea to do cups like this one.
    I would appreciate if you would start cups not on the ESL Maps. So it would be more interesting for funplayers to participate.
    Something is already prepared for FUN section ;)

    Who seeded the groups? ._.
    3 times Bullracing in one group is a bit too much for coincidence, I guess...
    #18
    i can tell you for sure that the ones who always rejected you aren't active anymore. now there are other/new guys deciding about such things.
    so if you are still intersted in being an admin, feel free to give it a 11th shot :)

    #19
    they were randomly seeded. such things are possible, that's all i can say o.0
