Tournament of the Jaguar
« on: April 22, 2011, 08:22:21 PM »
Welcome. The purpose is simple. A 5v5 team tournament. The tournament will be a best of 3, single elimination no respawn contest. The winner will receive a custom made badge for their signatures to show off their accomplishment.

Here are the rules:

1. 425k Cash Limit - spectating judge will verify each drop list
2. No ejections
3. An asset unable to fight due to game bugs will be considered DEAD to avoid lawyering.
4. Base turrets will be disabled however fighting in a base or traveling directly through to trigger base LAMS will result in forfeit of that round.
5. Maps and seeding will be determined by tournament admin., and will be announced one week prior to the tournament. (tentatively May 21)
6. Disconnect and run back to the asset is permitted if the teams have not engaged in combat
7. Use of CSJ TS3 is required. Rooms will be setup for this event.
8. CSJ will provide up to 1 sub for any team that has team members unable to attend. Running short is also possible. To prevent forfeit.
9. Clans can submit more than one team providing there are slots available in the bracket..

Smoke Jaguar is hosting and administrating this tournament. Smoke Jaguar Teams will not be participating in this contest to retain impartiality. All SJ admin decisions are final.

Once a minimum of 8 teams have signed up a date range for the rounds to take place will be announced. Use the forum post found at  http://clansmokejaguar.enjin.com/forums/m/423292/viewthread/749671-open-tournament-jaguar    to register your team. (registration on the website is required) All participants in your team including alternates are required to be in your post. Good Luck and see you on the battlefield.

Check this news post for further updates.

If possible all fights will be recorded.

Note: Fraps volunteers are welcome

This competition is also open to Pick up Groups.

Any individual looking to get involved who isn't in a clan should sign up on our forums in the link below.

http://clansmokejaguar.enjin.com/forums/m/423292/viewthread/753030-open-tournament-pick-up-group-thread

Feel free to discuss your interest here and ask any questions about the tournament. Try to keep the above post fairly clear of all non signup chatter, so it stays clear and easily manageable.

This is a good opportunity for anyone who wants to try their hand at the competitive side of the mod, be it either playing or commanding. I suggest those who have thought about joining a clan but haven't to get involved, because it will be great fun.

We've currently got around 5 teams either signed up or stating that they will soon be signed up, just another few teams to go and we'll be able to announce a date for this.

As I said before this is a great opportunity for those that are just interested in dabbling in the 5v5 side of things and want to get together with a few mates and try it out.

Other than that, plenty more units still left to submit a team, so get involved guys ;)

Are undermanned drops allowed?  If so, I'll definitely throw the Blazing Aces hat into the ring.  We really rather just roll with our core unit than get a sub, and weight up with the c-bills to compensate.
I will personally hunt you down and poptart your leg while your back is turned and you're in your base.

dCK would like to play in this tournament. I cannot however give a full confirmation since I do not have talked to all of our members yet.

We will not be able to play on May the 7th and on May the 13th and 14th. All other dates would have to be negotiated.

I will update this post by the time I have received confirmation by my fellow clan members.

Great idea SJs, hope this works out :).

EDIT: Okay, I have talked to all members of dCK. We will fight in this tournament as long as the date does not collide with real life obligations our members are having. May 20th and 21st sound fine so far. If there should be any complications I will let you know in time.

Why undermanned? There are clan-free pilots out there which would participate but lack a unit...
I am quite sure, if some makes a post la 'me, Alvin and my buddies Simon, Theodore and Dave form a team, we just lack a 5th pilot' quite soon players would contact that guy...

Yeah Victor you can drop with 4.  Assuming that "to prevent forfeit" doesn't mean as a last resort.


8. CSJ will provide up to 1 sub for any team that has team members unable to attend. Running short is also possible. To prevent forfeit.

We have 6 solid entrants so far.. Clock is ticking!

edit: Oh, if it fills up, go ahead and note your entry anyway - at least one alternate team should be available in the event of a forfeit.
