Season 1 has come to a close, and not only has Sorry Guys emerged victorious, they've gone undefeated in 84 Season 1 games with a record of 82-0-2! Holy Kodachis!
We also saw Invidia come out on top in the July One-Day Tournament with a 6-0 record! We played Thunderbolt and Time Bombs for the entire tournament, and it made for some fun moments.
The August One-Day Tournament is just around the corner, and will take place Sunday, August 25th at 11 AM Pacific. We'll be testing out a potential nerf to the hunter missile, given the overwhelming response we've had regarding it's excessive power. As with the July One-Day tournament, games will count towards the season, but individual stats will NOT be recorded. We'll have details regarding the mod prepared in the coming days!
Congratulations to Sorry Guys
for taking an 8-0 record in the group stages of the Season 1 Championships! There were plenty of close games and surprise as SG, The Three Queens, and Old Man Gaming will join Post Terran Mining Corp in the knockout stage to determine who the Season 1 Champions will be! Follow along with the brackets at https://challonge.com/otls1c2
We will be continuing our month end one-day tournaments into Season 2, and our working out the details of what we will be doing for that event. There will be another announcement on Wednesday detailing the specifics of the event. We will continue to hold it on the last Sunday of the month, which this month will be 7/28, at 11 AM Pacific time, and we will play for approximately 3 hours. Hope to see you there!
The end of season survey is LIVE! Visit https://forms.gle/DJ7QHm9r9jmQhY8D6
and fill out this survey. This will take some time, as there are a large number of questions. I'm not going to put a closing date on the survey at this time, but I do want @everyone
who played this season to take the survey.
The final one-day tournament of Season 1 is tomorrow, Sunday June 30th at 11 AM Pacific! Once again, we will be adding 3 new maps to the rotation.
First up is Winchester by @terminal
! A mix of indoors and outdoors, this map features two outdoor areas. Enjoy throwing creepers and other homing projectiles from one outdoor area to the other! Download at https://overloadmaps.com/winchester
Next up is a remake of an old Skyrat level, Skybox by @jazzyjet
! A classic in Descent 3, Skybox features spacious rooms and hallways, and a ton of interconnectivity. Download at https://overloadmaps.com/skybox-v1.2
, and be sure you have the current version, v1.2.
Finally is another @terminal
map, Jega! This is a map similar to Winchester but a bit more cramped with less dogfighting spaces, and much more tunnel ratting. Download at https://overloadmaps.com/jega-v2
, and be sure you have the current version, v2.0.
Be certain to have the latest version of olmod which doesn't require olproxy to play! If you are having any trouble with olmod, be sure to get in touch with @[3Q] roncli
Do note that home maps and rosters lock at July 1st, midnight UTC. The group stages of the Season 1 OTL Championship Tournament will begin immediately thereafter!
Congratulations to Sorry Guys for going an undefeated 5-0 in their first one-day tournament! With this tournament complete, that means TBDB, Belted, and Tryhard are now available for league play. This also means that olmod is permitted for play! See #olmod for further instructions and for a link to download the version that's on the servers.
I wanted to remind everyone of the upcoming timetable with regards to the conclusion of Season 1 and what we're planning for Season 2.
First, we will have our final one-day tournament on Sunday, June 30th at 11 AM Pacific, and it will again feature three new maps. Send ideas for new maps to your team captains!
Second, the regular season for Season 1 will conclude on Sunday, June 30th at 5 PM Pacific time. All games must have started by that time to be included in Season 1 stats.
The regular season for Season 2 will begin immediately upon the conclusion of the regular season. The final ruleset is still being decided, but I'm not expecting major changes. More on this below.
The Season 1 Championships will also begin immediately. If we still have six active teams at the time of the start of the tournament, we will only be doing 2 phases of the tournament. The first phase will last up to 3 weeks, and will feature a double round robin between all of the teams except Post Terran Mining Corp, who earned a bye to the final phase of the tournament as the #1 seed. The top 3 teams out of the double round robin will be seeded 2 through 4, and then a single elimination knockout best of 5 tournament will take place to determine the Season 1 champion. There will also be a 3rd place match!
Before the end of this week, I will be distributing a survey to the league regarding pretty much everything having to do with the league and the competitive game at large. Your feedback will be VERY important, and potentially drive what the league does for future seasons. Keep an eye out for it!
