The first North American Quake Live event of the month is being held this Saturday by Silent Gamers. The organization recently held a capture the flag tournament to celebrate their return to the Quake Live scene. This weekend everyone is invited to come celebrate another milestone with Silent Gamers as they partner with the N.A. Duel Cup and hold the first of many S.G.Duel.Cup
yer Double Elimination. Map selection for Best of Three (upper bracket) is pick/pick and best of one (lower bracket) is obviously drop/drop. Common topics Relating to rules and guidelines are below and full details are here.
1.) Occasionally someone will ask "I don't have 3 days and 300 duels played! Can I still play?" and the answer is: "get in touch with admins". This rule exists to deter aliasing so the tournaments can be seeded properly.
2.) In a "Pick-Pick" tournament the pla
yers each pick a map from the pool, and then drop maps until one remains. The map that remains will server as a tie breaker. Best of One sets still decide maps by dropping until there is a single map left to play.
3.) Type "cv cointoss" following by "heads" or "tails" into the console to see who picks/drops first. The winner of the coin toss may pass the first map drop/pick to their opponent or take it for themselves.
4.) Upper Bracket games are Best of Three sets: PICK PICK, drop drop, drop drop, tie-breaker
5.) Lower Bracket games are Best of One sets: drop drop, drop drop, drop drop, play last
6.) Grand Finals is a Best of Five/Seven (please read for further clarification)
The upper bracket finalist is assumed to have proven themselves by not dropping a set throughout the tournament, and therefore if they take 3 map wins before their opponent they win the grand finals. However if the pla
yer from the lower bracket takes 3 map wins first then the best of five becomes a best of seven. Map selection remains the same starting with a coin-toss. Pla yer who wins the coin-toss may pick the first map or pass the choice to their opponent. Subsequent picks are then chosen the loser of the most recent map.
6.) Server settings can be copied from below to make a Texas server with password: duel
No additional modifications are allowed. The only values you may change are the maps, server name, server password, and server location. Do not make premium servers. There is no point and it only causes issues with pla
yers needing invites. If you simply use a password and provide the information in #duelcup irc on quakenet I assure you no one will bother you. Always provide an admin a li nk to your game and the password BEFORE you ready up. We can avoid having to ask you mid game accidentally. Admin names on irc SG|shun, SG|Rob, and flair. You can put your server information into the #duelcup chat. Anything sent to flair in IRC is safe from the stream. note: Anything sent to flair in game is subject to show up on stream! Please use IRC

Sign-Ups for the Silent Gamers Duel Cup can be found at http://1800.challonge.com/duelcup ... the bracket is unlocked and available for sign up ON EVENT DAY (February 21st). There are no early sign-ups or pla
yer list available. This is done to prevent no shows, and it has been working very well! To sign up pla yers need to create a http://challonge.com account.
If you are playing you must join #duelcup irc channel (quakenet.org) on game day to setup matches. Do not expect opponents to add you to their friend list in quake. It is much faster to simply send a message in the #duelcup channel or a private /msg them.

The amounts for first, second, etc are subject to change ba
sed upon donations.
Important: Until we setup stripe for CC donations (very soon just waiting on bank to approve) donations can be made with paypal on the new account we have created. I say all this because last month paypal kind of screwed us and pla
yer's money sat frozen with little help from customer support. I have requested the account be closed and a check mailed out. Details of the whole fiasco can be read in this thread
