Due to discussions amongst top duellers in QuakeWorld on the suitability of bravado for top level competition, a small committee have been gathering for some months past with the goal of reproducing the map in a modified form. Ever a good friend to the QW community, Lurq
has been kind enough to donate some of his precious time in doing the physical work, and his project is nearing its next stage of completion. A question thus will arrive: Is it ready?
With Thunderdome season 7 fast approaching, however, time for such contemplation is in short supply. It is for this reason that with optimism we announce the Thunderdome Bravado Exhibition Tournament.Read on for more information...
The tournament will be a one day event hosted this Sunday 9th
of October, starting at 20:00 CEST (18:00UTC)
. The format of the tournament will be decided based upon the amount of entrants, but it will definitely be elimination based. All entrants and mappers will be welcome to comment on their experience and ideas on any variations of bravado in the #mapping room of the Quake.World server on discord, or on the forum post on quakeworld.nu that shall appear on the day of the tournament.
Entrants should apply by writing their name below, if this does not work for you for any reason then you can contact an admin either via discord or irc. Entrants from all over the world are welcome to join, and can help the smooth running of the tournament by ensuring that the map gets uploaded to their favourite servers in advance. A copy of the map is included as a postscript, along with a list of all the known servers that are hosting it.
The administrators are VVD
praxismo. They can be found on irc #Thunderdome@QuakeNet , or in the QuakeWorld discord server.
Because timing has been unfortunate, the execution of this tournament necessitates that the commencement of Thunderdome season 7 will be postponed by one full week. TD7 will now start on the weekend of the 15th of October.Signups:
