Team Invidia prevailed in the Monsterball tournament with a perfect 4-0 record! While Monsterball is fun, there are several issues that we'd like to work out before considering adding it to the league, but for now we're glad to be able to give it some representation within the league!
With the latest version of the bot, 2.1.1, the team roster cap size has been increased from 8 to 10. We've seen a pattern where there aren't enough players willing to lead a team, and existing teams that have slots have valid reasons to keep their sizes under the league maximum. Meanwhile, teams that could accept new players are left with their hands tied as they are already at 8 players. This cap will be monitored, and if necessary increased again, but not until after the conclusion of Season 2.
Congratulations to The Three Queens for taking the CTF tournament with a 5-0-1 performance! I hope everyone is excited for Capture the Flag, because it will join Team Anarchy in the modes that can be played in Season 3!
For the next One-Day Tournament this Sunday, November 24th, we'll again try a new mode, this time with some Monsterball! There are currently a number of Monsterball maps out there, and all will be valid for play in this tournament. Similar to the previous tournament, the home team will choose which of the maps to play. Hope to see you there!
The Mid-Season Invitational has completed with Sorry Guys taking a 3-1 series win over Post Terran Mining Corp! This means SG will automatically begin the group stage with 1 win in the Season 2 Championships in January. Well played to everyone involved, as every set had at least one match within 10 points!
Season 2 continues to roll on with the next One-Day Tournament this Sunday, October 27th at 11 AM Pacific. For this tournament we will be changing it up dramatically with our first ever Capture the Flag tournament! There are currently 6 CTF maps, and all of them will be in rotation for the tournament. The home team will choose which of those six maps to play in the tournament. These are:
- Cacophony by @[PTMC] Miasmic
- Twinspire by @[DC] JosheM
- Gambit by @terminal
- Halcyon by @jazzyjet
- Friction by @terminal
- Ancient by @Yinut
Hope to see you there!
Congratulations to Post Terran Mining Corp for going 4-0 in the August One-Day Tournament that featured slower hunter missiles! We are hoping to have the slower hunter missiles become a more permanent part of olmod soon, so stay tuned to the olmod project for more information!
The September One-Day Tournament is coming up this Sunday, September 29th at 11 AM Pacific. This time, we'll be doing something a bit crazy... Friendly Fire! Be careful where you shoot, or you could be taking points off the board if you hit a teammate! As with other Season 2 tournaments, games will count towards the season, but individual stats will NOT be recorded.
And I'm not trying to raise the flag for what the October One-Day Tournament will be, but... 🏳 🏴 🏁 🚩
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!
