So begins the very first tournament of the Tendency Circuit, and we're kicking it off with a gamemode not often visited by the community at large: team deathmatch!
The tournament follows a double elimination system, which means that teams remain active in the tournament until they lose two games.
Teams are made of two players. Players are allowed to sign up their pre-determined teams, and players who decide to sign up alone will be shuffled into other teams after the sign-up period ends.
The amount of teams that will participate in the tournament is directly proportional to the amount of sign-ups and, more importantly, to the amount of players who actually attend to the event. There is no rule against odd amounts, so it is possible to have 5 or 7 participating teams.
The tournament will utilize tdmax_b4.wad as the maplist. It contains 43 maps, 5 of which are part of the starter map list (check out the Games section for more details).
- MAP01: DWANGO5 MAP01
- MAP04: UDM3 MAP01
- MAP10: Exec MAP07
- MAP16: Vex-ZDaemon MAP01
- MAP29: Greenwar MAP20
Each round has a duration of 6 minutes and a frag limit of 40. Sudden death is enabled. Each game follows a Best of 3 system.
The team that is higher up in the bracket is Team #1, and the lower team is Team #2. Out of the 5 starter maps, Team #1 eliminates one map out of the starter pool, Team #2 eliminates two, and lastly, Team #1 eliminates another map. The last remaining map gets played for the first round and, for subsequent rounds, the losing team picks any of the remaining maps, including other starter maps and non-starter maps. A map may not be played twice in the same set.
- Trading players between two teams is not allowed.
- Trading players between a team and the free agency, on the other hand, is allowed, but can only be done once.
- Stalling is not allowed. Any players/teams caught doing so will automatically lose their game.
- If a team is unable to show themselves when their next game comes up, it will automatically count as a loss for them.
