Stronghold Tournament

Recommended Posts

As the Anniversary is now less than a week away, we'll be running some events in-game to celebrate. Most of these will be fun-round styled modifiers similar to the low-gravity we had on the closure of OWG, however alongside those we will be running a Stronghold Tournament. We initially planned to run a CS:GO Tournament, however due to the time taken for us to set it up and the dedication required from entrees, we decided this is the best and most accessible option for our players.

From this year onwards, we will be hosting Tournaments in each of our games, starting with Stronghold. This will be hosted on a separate server to better keep track of competing players and to enforce custom rules. We will be running the event as follows;

  • The Standalone server will launch on Saturday and Sunday at 18:00-18:30 (BST). This will run alongside the main server
  • The server will be open for 30 minutes, starting with a clean Scoreboard and no props placed
  • On Saturday, the server will be accessible through the Server browser or through swapme. 9 players with the highest points score will be invited to the Server on Sunday, and will win $1,000,000 WZ Each
  • The three players with the highest amount of kills on the Sunday will win prizes, with rewards incrementing upwards with 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place

Prizes are currently unconfirmed, however some will be as follows

1st Place

  • $25,000,000 WZ
  • 100 Cases of your choice
  • Any skin of your choice (Not including exclusive skins)
  • One custom-designed Weapon, Glove, or Knife Skin of your choice
  • Lifetime Platinum VIP

2nd Place

  • $20,000,000 WZ
  • 50 Cases of your choice
  • Any skin of your choice (Not including exclusive skins)
  • One custom-designed Weapon Skin of your choice
  • Lifetime Gold VIP

3rd Place

  • $15,000,000 WZ
  • 25 Cases of your choice
  • Any skin of your choice (Not including exclusive skins)
  • Lifetime Silver VIP

1st/2nd/3rd: One unannounced prize

Top 12

  • $1,000,000 WZ

We will also be running a custom ruleset for the event, with set conditions;

  • AWPs/RPGs will not be equippable
  • Base building is banned (Props can still be used to climb roofs, etc)
  • Teams are allowed, with up to 3 players. Keep in mind, winning places are per-person, however can be shared amongst a team
  • A new ruleset will be introduced for the Sunday round, and will be announced to the contenders

Regular rules will also apply. If any rules are broken intentionally, the player will be banned for the duration of the Server event without warning.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Hell yeah

 

Replace K/D ratio with the highest amount of kills, though. If not, someone who joins in the last few minutes and goes 10-0 will likely win the tournament.

Considering AWP is banned from the tournament, may I suggest also banning the two other auto snipers? They're equally OP, though I'd even dare to say the auto snipers are even better considering they're a two shot most of the time with the same scoping and quite a fast shooting speed.

I mean if we are talking op then whats the opinion on m4a4? 

You can easily outgun an autosniper with an m4

I think it's the best automatic rifle. Previously, it wasn't just the best, it was also the worst to play against. It had a almost no recoil whatsoever. Now, after the recent updates, I find myeslf in situations where I lose to players with AK's or even P90's. It has been nerfed, but it still remains the best, though now other weapons can challenge it. And just for a comparison, the auto snipers are a two shot with a scoping. The M4A4 kills in 3 shots most of the times, and has just a red-dot.
Yes, one is a sniper, and the other is an automatic rifle, but there's a reason they're called "Auto Snipers", because they combine both into one.

There's a lot of discussion here about weapons to use or not, best to clarify some things.

First, the AWP is the most used Sniper in SH, and most of the folks in Management said there would be way too many players using the AWP. Of course, there are other auto-snipers and the M4A4 which also would do with some balancing, but removing a massive portion of the guns would further dwindle down the amount of entering players.

Honestly, if it was my call this would be in SH2. Better, more balanced weapons all around with more features and we probably wouldn't have to ban anything other than the RPG, but people prefer the broken as hell weapon system in the original, and that's why the SH2/3/Pro servers died within a matter of weeks ¯\/(ツ)\/¯

Another thing is for the Sunday round, there will be a new Discord channel for the 12 competing players. In there, we'll be discussing some new rulesets for that night and you can organise teams if you want. Most rules will stay the same, however you will be able to vote to ban certain weapons for the Sunday round.

Also, I'm certain the RPG ban is self explanatory :goproforsenE:
