Congratulations to Invidia for winning the Season 3 Championships, 3-0 over Sorry Guys, who take second! Also, The Three Queens three-peat the number three spot. Hmm. 🤔
For Season 4, we are going to focus on improving the experience within the league, starting with some changes to home maps that should be coming by the end of the month. Each team will now have a list of home maps that are specific to the team size being played, including 2v2, 3v3, and games at 4v4 or larger. This means that map selection will come after the team size is agreed to, and may need to change if the team sizes change. We will also be eliminating the stock map requirement, as there are no longer official servers that are restricted to those maps.
We will be going through some balance changes very soon as well, keep an eye on the #balance channel for more information!
Good luck to all teams in Season 4!
It's time for the Season 3 Championships! Check out https://otl.gg
under the Tournaments menu for the current standings for each of the 3 groups in group play. Group stages end Sunday July 19th, followed by the knockout stage!
Season 4 has begun! While the Season 3 Championships is going on, feel free to get your Season 4 campaign against other teams in the league!
Finally, we are doing another end of season survey! Visit https://forms.gle/vUZpjggvt75ffpFD8
and take about 15 minutes to fill out this form if you played at any point in the season. The feedback from this survey could shape the future of the OTL and olmod, and your participation will be greatly appreciated! You will have until Sunday, July 19th to provide your feedback.
While there has been only one team that's achieved season champion so far, there have been three different teams winning the Mid-Season Invitational. This time, that goes out to Invidia, who went 9-0 en route to the MSI tournament victory! Congratulations to them!
Season 3 concludes June 30th, and with that the Season 3 championships will begin. Format and rules will be out soon, but expect things to be similar to last season with a modification to be made to the group stage to allow for 9 teams. Season 4 will also begin upon the conclusion of Season 3!
First, give it up for Sorry Guys for repeating as the Overload Teams League champions for a second straight season! Invidia takes second, and The Three Queens won the third place match that contained a record-setting Game 4 that featured THREE overtime periods!
Also, congratulations to Invidia for taking February's CTF tournament, sporting a perfect record of 4-0!
Today, version 3.0.3 of the bot and website was released. Of note, this version comes with three important rule changes for teams to consider:
1) When issuing the
!rematch command, subsequent games will make sure that the color you played in the previous game is the same color you play in the next game. The
!challenge command will still balance out colors over time.
2) The captain cap has been removed! If you want a team of ten pilots and all of them are captains, knock yourself out! (Except for the founder, of course!)
3) We are introducing a cap exemption system that will allow teams that are at the roster cap to continue to add members. This is provided for teams who are at the roster cap, but have members interested to join that have a strong connection to one of their teammates, for instance a family member. Cap exempt members will be listed in the #cap-exemptions channel and will have the @Cap Exempt role. The specifics regarding this rule can be found in the #teams channel.
Tomorrow, Sunday, February 2nd, at 11 AM Pacific, we'll be running some mixed team matches for fun. Show up and play, we'll even play with non-OTL players if you'd like!
This week, the Season 2 Championships will wrap up, and one of Invidia and Sorry Guys will become the Season 2 champions! Good luck to both teams involved!
Finally, the February One-Day tournament will be Sunday, February 23rd, and we'll be doing CTF matches again, this time restricting the map pool to CTF maps that have come out since the last tournament. That includes:
Cacophony by @[PTMC] Miasmic
Colony by @[PTMC] Miasmic
Grand Traverse by @[DC] JosheM
Halcyon Curved by @jazzyjet
Isle of Dogs by @terminal
Kataclysmica by @jazzyjet (An asymmetrical map!)
Rotunda by @[PTMC] Miasmic
Trichome by @jazzyjet
Turnstile by @[PTMC] Miasmic
Whoopass Cannery by @jazzyjet
We want to find out what time will work for players, so please reuse the #balance for what the best time to run the tournament will be for all teams involved. Keep in mind we try to keep it around 3 hours if possible!
