QW2018 Team League pre-tournament announcement + sign ups.
With the successful Get2Gether 2on2 tournament coming into its final stages, attention now turns to what will be next on the Quakeworld competitive calendar. So after a fair amount of rumor and discussion we are proud to announce the QW 2018 Team League, a new 4on4 tournament focused on providing fast and furious clan based action for all players across the skill range of Quakeworld. Be prepared to see the stalwarts of the 4on4 scene rub shoulders with enthusiastic new upstarts and possibly the return of an old legend or two ;-)
Signups for Division 2 close this Saturday, 31/3/2018
. We will not be accepting signups for Division 2 passed this date. Sign ups for Division 1 have be extended for one more week. The deadline for Division 1 entries is 7/4/2018
We are aiming to get the ball rolling in the next 3 - 4 weeks so would ask you to go ahead and show your team's interest in the comments below. We still have a few things to work out with regards to the format but below are the essentials.
Start Date: 16/4/2018
Admins + Discord contact:
Squads to consist of 6 players (minimum) to 8 players (maximum). Please specify a team captain (c) and vice captain (vc) for the purposes of communication between teams and admins. To sign up please provide the following information in the comments below.
.Player roster + nationality (specifying (c) and (vc) next to the relevant player.)
.We would also ask that teams provide an e-mail contact for both captain and vice-captain to a member of the admin staff via private message on Discord. PLEASE DO NOT POST E-MAIL ADDRESSES ON HERE!!
DO NOT WORRY! Teams will not be locked and considered final until the official start date so feel free to sign up now, you will be able to change line up freely up until the start of the season.
Still to be finalized, a lot will depend on the final number sign ups but we are aiming for at least 2 divisions with an initial round robin style group stage followed by some form of elimination bracket. Matches will be BO3 with possibility for BO5 at later stages.
Division 1 - dm2,dm3,e1m2 & cmt4
Division 2 - dm2,dm3,e1m2,cmt4 & schloss
Now I am sure there will be questions asked, we have already had more than a few. Please feel free to send any questions you may have to the admin staff on Discord. I may compile an FAQ over the next week or so to address particular recurring queries.
Tournament website can be found here.
Also we are experimenting with a Facebook page to boost visibility for the league as well as provide additional content such as screenshots, stats, videos etc. We realize that a lot of people don't have/don't like Facebook so there is no requirement to use this page. But for those who are interested you can follow the page here.
