The end of season survey is LIVE! Visit 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

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, 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, 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 or @Arne.

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!

Effective starting 11 AM Pacific on Sunday - hey, that's when the One-Day Tournament begins! - olmod will be officially approved for play in the OTL!

If you're not sure what olmod is, it's a program written by @Arne that basically injects code into Overload, allowing for the game to do things that were not possible previously. Over the coming days, I'll be providing additional information on how to get started with olmod, both by itself, and with another program called OCT by @[SWM] Maestro! Both are super simple to use.

With this, all of the Azure servers will be upgraded to using olmod, and us-east-olmod will be decommissioned. Don't worry if you still want to play games using the original Overload client, olmod servers will still support this!

What can you do with olmod?
• The desynchronization of hunters and missile pods is fixed.
• Join a game as an observer by creating a pilot whose name starts with "Observer". Remember to raise the max number of players to allow this!
• Copy and paste the IP address into the password field.
• Console commands to reload the missions without having to exit the game.
• Game stats are logged to the server they are played on.

Please note that the following olmod features will NOT be allowed in the league, at least for now:
• Join in Progress - Please still follow the same procedures for players disconnecting as you do today. This likely will not change, except we might get more fine-grained time goal options in the future!
• 5v5 and higher - This WILL be allowed in Season 2! 🎉
• 3 or more teams - The OTL is currently not setup to handle this. Maybe season 3?
• Monsterball - The OTL is currently not setup to handle this. Also maybe season 3?

The Three Queens take their second consecutive One-Day Tournament, going undefeated en route to a 4-0 record. With this tournament complete, that means that Junebug, Mesa, and Turnstile are in rotation for maps you can choose from in the league.

The next one-day tournament will be Sunday May 26th at 11 AM Pacific! We will again be adding 3 new maps to the rotation. This month, prepare yourselves for wind tunnels, teleporters, and plenty of vertical play!

First up, it's another Overload DLC 1 challenge map, this time we have TBDB by @[PTMC] Miasmic! This is a 4 story map with plenty of different kinds of spaces to fight in. Download at, and be sure you have the current version, v2.0.

Next up is another @[PTMC] Miasmic DLC 1 challenge mode entry, Belted! This is unique in that it's the first map in the league that uses the indoor alien level textures, and also has a single teleporter that takes you from the top level to the bottom and vice versa! Download at, and be sure you have the current version, v2.0.

Finally, our small map is a recent entry from @Yinut, it's Tryhard! This map will challenge teams to figure out how to use the two wind tunnels properly to get to where they need to be! Download at

These maps are nominated and voted on by team founders and captains, so if there are maps you want to see in the league, be sure to communicate with your team's leadership!

Be sure you have olproxy ready to go, and if you're having any trouble setting it up be sure to contact @[3Q] roncli or @Arne.

Also a reminder to teams that there is a month and a half remaining in the season, which ends July 1 midnight UTC. That will immediately be followed by the group stage for the Season 1 OTL Championship Tournament!
