    Frequently asked Questions / Cup rules






     
    Spoiler


    Basic notes:

    1. Requirement for the cup to take place


    Please note that a minimum of 16 teams (with a minimum of 4 players each team) are required in order to spill out the full Pot of 500 $ (The winning team will get 400 $ in total, the runners up will get 100 $ in total. We won't decide how much each player of the team will get). However, if the total amount of teams is only between 15 and 8 teams, the cup will still take place, but the price pool will be reduced to 250 $. You will need a paypal account to receive the money. Payments must be claimed within 1 month of end of the cup, else it won't be entertained.





    2. How to sign up your team / How to join the free player pool.

    Captains have to create an account and a team first on challonge.com and than sign it up to the AssaultSpringCup2016 tournament by clicking here . Each team member has to create an account on challonge as well. Than the captain has to add his members himself. For this go to "teams->select your team->Members"


    In case you dont want to be captain of a team and dont have a team to join either but still wanna play, just create an account on challonge.com and we can add you to the free player pool. Simply reply here and tell us your challonge-nickname or leave us a request on irc, facebook, steam and provide your challonge-nickname.




    3. Some matchrules so far (subject to alterations)


    - Matchdays are sundays 20 CEST. If one team can't play on this date, it's your duty to contact the opponents captain and ask for a date on a contemporary day.
    - You can use the assault teamspeak server of Weedman. (TS3: 74.91.116.147 pw: ut4.ig)
    - A team has to consist of a minimum of 4 players, but you can add up to 6, so you have 2 subs. The game will be played 4on4.
    - Spectating is only allowed if both teams agree on it.
    - Every match should be recorded (via shadowplay or the demorec command in UT).
    - No multi team joining allowed.

    Match process/rules:

    Cup process:

    The cup will start on Sunday May 8th 20 CEST / 18 GMT ! The following matchdays will also always be Sunday 20 CEST ( May 15th, May 22th, May 29th )

    - The captains should be available at least 1 hour before the match on irc @ irc.globalgamers.net #ut.assault
    - 2 Groups ! The first 2 will proceed to the final stage

    The groupstage will take place on sunday May 8th and sunday May 15th.

    -We will play 2 matches on the first sunday ( May 8th) . The rest will be played on the second sunday ( May 15 th ).
    -If you don't have a full team on one sunday, you can get a sub out of the free players pool (note: no one of another team) or you have to contact your opponents captains, if they agree playing against you on another day during the week. So it's prolly better to care for a sub.

    important for rearranged matches: - all of the rearranged matches have to take place at the latest until the following wednesday ! (i.g. you can't play the two matches on sunday the 8th, you can play the two matches on monday 9th, tuesday 10th, up to wednesday 11th)
    - you have to provide the rearranged date until the saturday before the matchday in this thread.(means if you can't play on sunday 8th, you have to tell us the new date until saturday 7th)
    - if you won't find a sub and can't agree on another date to play, the team who doesn't have a squad on the sunday will loose the match.



    - playing for more than one team is forbidden, except you are left in the free players pool. People left in the free players pool can help wherever they are needed in the group stage and can be recruited for the final stage after the group stage is over.
    - if both teams agree , spectators are allowed




    Finalstage:


    - The semifinals will take place on the third sunday (May 22th)
    - The final and the match for the third place will take place on sunday (May 29th)
    - matches will be streamed
    - no new substitute out of the free players pool allowed anymore. However you can add a substitute, who played for you in the group stage directly after the group stage is over. (May 15th)




    Other infos:


    - If you still need players for your team, it is time to tell us as soon as possible please.
    - Free players will be in Team Subsitute and can fill up any team, who needs a player.
    - The Assaultmod will come with an updated 3.3 version and updated map (bug fixes) in the next few days. A map pack will be available for download. So make sure you all are up to date.
    - Using gamebreaking bugs will be forbidden. (You are not allowed to use a glitch of the map. That also means using the defenders teleporter i.g. on overlord towers) However please note that finishing a map, using a teamlaunch is not a glitch !
    - Be gentle to each other ! It's a cup where all should have fun. So take consideration for each others.
    - if anything isn't covered by the rules, try to find a fair solution or the admins will decide. (admins: ]-[ank, fatJeff, Urgamanix, Bloodking, iBamz)



    Setting up the match / rules :

    The group stage

    Both teams have to join the Assault HUB they agreed playing on. One captain has to create a match with the map AS-Ballistic : Assault Cup -> Group stage and invite the participants.(private match, spectating not allowed, don't limit rank, allow join in progress)

    -> AS-Ballistic is the warmup map.


    After that warmup map, don't vote so the first map will be picked random. After this the looser picks the next map and you take turns.

    - Round Robbin system
    - First to 3 maps wins
    - Map-pool will be: guardia, frigate, nemphis, overlord, riverbed,
    - All maps can only be played once ! So don't vote a map, which was already played.
    - On a match day at least 2 matches in a row will be played for each team.
    - Hammer launching allowed (if you don't know what it is, just ask us or watch the trailer or the tutorial here, note that rocketlaunching is not working atm)



    The final stage

    Both teams have to join the Assault HUB they agreed playing on. One captain has to create a match choosing AS-Ballistic as start map : Assault Cup -> Final stage and invite the participants. (private match, spectating allowed-> only our 2 streamers are allowed to go in, don't limit rank, allow join in progress)


    -> AS-Ballistic is the warmup map.

    - Single elemination system
    - First to 5 map wins
    - Map-pool : same as group stage + autorip, ballistic, golgotha, golgotha2, lavafort (makes a total of 10 maps)
    - All maps can only be played once ! So don't vote a map, which was already played.
    - Hammer launching allowed (if you don't know what it is, just ask us or watch the trailer tutorial link)



    After that warmup map, don't vote so the first map will be picked random. After this the looser picks the next map and you take turns.

    You can get the maps from http://ut4assault.com/MapList.aspx and see a mapguide/tutorial for AS-Ballistic as well.


    4. Where will the matches be played?


    So far we have servers located in Sweden and Germany. The team captains have to agree on a server to play.
    The server needs to run the latest version of Maps / Assault mode. In case the teams cannot agree on a
    server to play on, 1 Map will be played on the server of team A and the next map wqill be played on the server
    of team B. Admins will flip a coin in this case to decide where the first map of the match will be played.


    ON-GOING: We might add more servers to the pool of servers.


    5. How to cope with errors / issues / bugs / cheating etc.


    Please note: The game is still pre-alpha and errors / bugs might occur during a match.
    Since each situation is unique, each situation must be handled individual.


    In case the servers crashed during half time, the first round does count and the team that defended
    first will get the chance to attack. If they exceed the time of the team that attacked first, they lose this
    map.


    Cheating is not allowed. Players who are caught cheating will make their team lose the match by default.


    Please assist the admins by recording demos (command: demorec examplematch20160419-Guardia-Defense) or by recording
    a video using shadowplay or something similiar.

                  Its a rebuild of AS-Hispeed (ut99) made by ]-[ank, its really awesome to play and adds alot new aspects to the game

                          How do I join the FREE PLAYERS POOL?

                          When I click on "go to registration" it won't let me click on it and when I click on the "FREE PLAYERS POOL" team on the ladder I don't see anything that says sign up.
                          Also, around what dates and times is the tournament going to be?

                            One of the cup admins can add you to the free players pool providing your Challonge name. Which I assume Is Felin. Then about the dates I think the cup will be played mostly during weekends. Due to the time difference between us and eu players. More info one of our admins can provide in more detail.

                              Farac is right

                              To sign up to the "Free Player Pool", you just have to give us your challonge name. Neither by posting it here below, sending us a pm on forums, irc, facebook or where ever you like. Since we know your challonge name already (Felin right?), we will add you to the free player pool. The sign up page/ registration with the drop down menu is only for team captains to sign their team.

                              Good news for you NA players. We will have a NA-Hub very soon (i quess this weekend) where you can train all the maps or play some Assault.

                              About the date/time. The plan atm is to let you guys choose between 2 days you can play. One during the week and one on weekend. However if you can't manage to play on this, it's up to you to ask the other team captain to agree on another date.

                              More rules / infos will be posted this weekend. Stay tuned And no fear...sign up guys ! We already have 2 teams totally new to assault
