The sdCup is a premier weekend tournament featuring a hefty prize pool and top class talent. It encourages even pings allowing for the entire world to participate online in epic weekend bouts between the best players out there.
All players are required to be present on the QuakeWorld Discord in the channel #sdCup before the tournament begins.
$2,000.00 (USD) are spread among the players as seen below:
- 10 min duels with 3 min overtime
- All rounds are BO5
- Ruleset: smackdown/qcon
This is a world wide tournament, meaning you might have to play games on a higher ping than you're used to. Strive for fair pings, but use this as a general rule of thumb:
- East coast NA vs EU = Ireland
- West coast NA vs EU = New York
- AU vs EU = India
- AU vs NA = Los Angeles
- BR vs AU = Los Angeles
- BR vs EU/NA = Miami
If you can find a server with lower pings for both of you, I strongly suggest you use that one! This is just a general rule of thumb and not a requirement, however striving for as equal pings as possible is mandatory. Use cl_delaypacket to even out the pings up to a maximum of 155ms.
