Eclipse one-day duel tournament - Sunday 10th September
After nitemare's victory last week, round 2 is this Sunday night @ 8pm CEST (7pm BST).

Same rules/structure/map-dropping rules as last week, so it should be a round-robin group stage, followed by a double-elimination bracket to determine the winner.

Update: Tournament is over, thanks to everyone who took part and also to Jehar for streaming at TastyspleenTV. The full results are now available on the wiki page.

This coming Sunday (17th) there will be a one-map tournament for a new map that is being considered for Thunderdome9 - stay tuned for details.

  • Games start at 8pm CEST (7pm BST), please be on Discord (#events channel) at that time, and report all match results in the channel.
  • All matches are BO3, tournament map-pool is same as Thunderdome 8: DM2, DM4, AEROWALK, ZTNDM3 & BRAVADO
  • Map-pool reduced to three maps before match starts: the higher-ranked player's nominated map is tossed first, then the lower-ranked. If both players nominated the same first map, the lower-ranked player's second option is tossed instead. Higher-ranked player picks the first map.
  • Players will be placed into two groups, and play all opponents in their group (round-robin)
  • Ties in group stage will be broken by maps won across all games in group, then by maps won across games between players involved in the tie, then by frag difference between players involved in the tie. If still tied (!), the tie will be broken by cointoss (/cmd rnd)
  • Knockout stage is double-elimination - winners of group stage progress to knockout stage WB, runner-up in each group goes into LB

Ping rules
  • Be prepared to play on London servers
  • If requested, be prepared to ping up to half your opponent's ping, or 51 (whichever is lower)

That's us up to 13 now, 16 will be the maximum.

Also the tournament format will change - either 2 divisions and same as last week, or more groups but single elimination knockout stage, just to reduce the time a bit. I'll see how the groups look.

ok98: As a new Thunderdome season is just around the corner, I went with that map-pool for the moment - ideally we can use regular weekly (small) tournaments to try out different maps and expand the map-pool further, adding another map and adding DM6 back in to make a TB7. For the moment though it's the TD8 map-pool.
