Sunday's games kick off one hour earlier than today, 1pm, so please don't be late! Every team plays this one round then half the teams will be knocked out. For the guys who get knocked out early feel free to organise some games in the background - ask me if you require a server.

We now have a full quota of teams, thanks to all who have signed up - we'll see you tomorrow in #byqw at about 1:30 onwards tomorrow. Server IP's will be pasted in the IRC channel before each game as well as on this page under the fixtures. Please note we have a low tolerance for people arriving late, however we may allow people to enter a game in progress if one member of the team is already playing.

Good luck and see you on the battlefield tomorrow!

tournament information..

posted by Oppy - 21/08/03

We will be running a 16 team (2 players per team) weekend tournament on August 30th (Saturday) and August 31st (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 group stage will consist of two Team Deathmatch rounds and two Clan Arena rounds - so please be prepared to play both gametypes! 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.
