posted by Oppy - 30/03/03

After an intense QuakeWorld-filled weekend the winner of the first bygames pure QuakeWorld tournament has been decided. Congratulations go to reppie and blixem of team "FS" who narrowly beat a very strong "redux" partnership consisting of blitz and corax on the deciding map. Also well played to telly and chad of "Team Chad" who beat grind and nih of team "er" for the 3rd place spot. Last but not least, thanks to everyone for showing up and giving it your best - you are what made this tournament successful. I hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as the admin team enjoyed theirselves!

tournament information..

posted by Oppy - 14/03/03

We will be running a 16 team (2 players per team) weekend tournament on March 29th (Saturday) and March 30th (Sunday). The tournament will be structured in two halves, the first being a group stage played on Saturday and the second being a single elimination knockout tournament played on Sunday.

The first half, known as the group stage, will be played as 2v2v2v2 matches - the matches will be allocated by random draw in four stages. The winner of each game receives 4 points, 2nd place receives 3 points, 3rd place receives 2 points and 4th place receives 1 point. These points are then totalled up so we can seed teams for the second half. If teams are tied on score we will use frag difference to decide seed.

In the second half, played as a single elimination knockout structure, we will seed teams and initially play one 2v2v2v2. The top two teams per match then progress and the bottom two will be knocked out. The following games are then played as 2v2 all the way to the final.

Please join #byqw (Quakenet) on the tournament days for latest up-to-date information. This will be the tournaments official channel for the weekend. Note one player per team must be in #byqw ten minutes before their matches start, see rules for information.
