There has been quite a bit of 4on4 activity in form of mix games after Qhlan, but the scene hasn't seen almost any official 4on4 games since the last EQL season. To fix that we're launching a new 4on4 ladder style league together with Dev right about now: enter Quakeworld 4on4 Ladder Tournament Season 1.
Some of you might still remember the Ad Mortem ladder tournament or the first season of NQR in which clans were allowed to play each other as many times as they wanted and received points based on the ELO (or similar) rating of the other team. The idea behind Quakeworld 4on4 Ladder Tournament is basically the same, but instead of an ELO-based system the tournament uses Rankade's own Ree-points to keep track of each clan's score.
Rankade isn't perhaps the most suitable platform for team-based games, but hopefully it'll work well enough for us. Teams should contact either Milton or Dev in Discord
(or wherever you can find us) for an invitation link to Rankade and sign up with their team (one sign up per team). As Rankade doesn't support team-based tournaments very well, teams should include the nick names of the players in their team name (e.g. "Team Kenya lovers Milton Ihminen blAze Xantom" ). This name should be in the "Name" field under profile. Username doesn't have to contain the nick names of the members. In addition teams should uncheck "Check if you want to display your username instead of your name" under Profile -> Settings tab. The first season starts as soon as we have at least two clans signed up and ends on 30th of June.
The goal of this tournament is to first of all increase clan-based 4on4 activity and to finally learn a couple of new 4on4 maps. The map pool for the tournament is cmt1b, cmt3, cmt4, schloss and ukpak2. There won't be any play offs in the end of the season: the winner will be the clan with the highest score in the end of the tournament. Winning isn't however perhaps of utmost importance in this tournament, as mentioned above. Full rules are available at the tournament web site in Rankade.
