Command and Conquer Red Alert 2 Cash Ladder Tournament!

Posted Image


Credits:
Kindly sponsored by Fireworks, run by Strike-Team.
CNCTube for featuring all replays.
GameReplays.org for providing commentary, and further exposure of the tournament.

What must I do?

Qualify in the TOP 16 of the Red Alert 2 Quick Match Ladder, August 2010.Confirm (the potential top 20) with us that you will be able to play on the 18th September. (We hope to get this finished in a day) 19th September will be a run over if we can't finish on the 18th.However, If a player has been proven to lame or cheat during the qualifying month, they will miss out on entering the tournament.

What happens after that?

If you happen to be lucky enough to get into the top 16 you are automatically entered into the tournament. We will take 5 reserves in-case players are unable to turn up. (so top 20 as a backup)

Maps to be played in the Tournament?


You won't be assigned a map for your matches, but you must choose a map from the map pool. If you don't and play with what is in the map pool, instead play your own map choice you will be disqualified.
Games are best of 3, you will only be able to play a map once within each stage. So 1st stage is your first 3 games, the 2nd stage is your next 3 games etc.
Player 1 will choose the first map, Player 2 will choose the next, Loser of round 2of3 will choose the final map.


How will the brackets be made?


Rank 1 will play Rank 16
Rank 2 will play Rank 15
Rank 3 will play Rank 14 (And so on.)

Finals

Will be best of 5 games.
Hopefully having commentary (VOD's), and live streaming for Strike-Team users to watch live.

Terms of entering the Tournament

-No engineering enemy buildings (except for tech buildings) - accidental or not
-No bug abuse ('alting', 'self-spy' or other things that the game was not intended to do). - accidental or not
-No trainers or map-revealers
-No intentional disconnecting/reconnecting/washing
-No 'pushing'
-Only 1 nickname per person (players can use multiple nicks in the ladder, but only 1 of their nicks can be used in the tournament)

NOTE: Players MUST be available on the day otherwise they are considered 'forfeited' and a reserve will take your place.

Prizes


1st place - 100 euros (not to mention a great reputation!)
2nd place - 50 euros
3rd place - 25 euros

Where to meet?
Meeting will take place in Korean Bunker 2, at 7PM BST.

HOW CAN YOU SAY I CAN'T USE ENGINEERS FOR THIS TOURNAMENT, THAT IS PART OF THE GAME.....SO I PROPOSE NO RHINO TANKS BECAUSE THEY ARE STRONGER THAN GRIZZLIES AND I FIND THEM AS UNFAIR AS THE ENGINEER, SO SOV PLAYERS CAN ONLY MAKE FLACK AND DRONES.

Sounds fun, but after all there are two games. YR has lots of skilled players. Even if the tournament takes place on ra2, the top 10 or 16 (whatever it is) of YR should be included.

Rules not set by me, I'm just laying down the guidelines set by fireworks.

im just saying, people act like engineers are a glitch and engineers used correctly are very effective in splits, and the computer even uses engineers in the campaigns

I think the case was fireworks wanted to see a tank battle, and not cheap tactics. (which hopefully you won't see in the top 16 anyway)

nope i say gg if someone beats me with engis

what you both fail to realize is that engineers can be used to other advantages other than running 1 right in the war, and then building pills

"SO I PROPOSE NO RHINO TANKS BECAUSE THEY ARE STRONGER THAN GRIZZLIES"

"the computer even uses engineers in the campaigns"

MY TOURNY, MY RULEZ!!! Jst kdn :p I'm not like that. Grizzlies build faster, move faster & shoot faster than Rhinos to compensate for their weekness in armour.
The computer is a cheater! In skirmish it starts off w/ 50 000 credits when u start off with 10 000! (Use FA2 to double check this, I'm not 100% sure!) No doubt its the same w/ campaigns. + the computer sux! It can engi u 10 times & u'd STILL win.
But like I said b4, I jst don't think that a little man wearing a little yellow hat carrying nothing but a little spanner, should b able to turn a whole match around! I jst wanna have battles w/ tanx, planes, ships, etc., not a race to see who can capture buildings the quickest.

"Nice. I really hope to god that this little incentive won't lead to even more players cheating than there is already."

Same. We'll jst have to wait & see.

No cursing or you can be disqualified? lulz

I used to let my 8 year old niece watch me play this game online, I don't any more.

you cant have capture enemy buildings on OFF while you have capturing enemy tech derricks on ON, especially NOT if the rule apply's to stop LAMING.

What is considdered to be lame? Well im afraid ur forgetting engi eating and ppl chosing NOOB maps cus they know they'll get p00ned on a good map LOl.

Engi eating is too hard to prove coz ppl sometimes leave their dogs near the enemy's base after scouting & 4get about them.
With the map choices, that was neogrant's idea, but I agree w/ him. We have to give lesser-skilled players SOME chance of winning. I mean, I've ALREADY taken away engi-rushing, which is some player's MAIN tactic.
But I'm sure w/ ur skills & experience, those things shouldn't b a problem.
