[1.04 NF] SaberMod Clan Arena Draft

Post by fau » 12 Jun 2017, 20:45

Tournament is over, click here to see results.

Hi!

I'm happy to invite you to another JK2 event – this time a Clan Arena Draft Tournament. Event is open for everyone from beginners to top players and will take place on Sunday 18.06.2017, 7PM CEST / 5PM UTC. We will be playing on Extreme ~ Clan Arena servers located in Frankfurt, Germany (35.157.76.97:28070 and 35.157.76.97:28071) so check them out and autodownload the clientside before Sunday.

What is Clan Arena?
It's a new gametype introduced in SaberMod 2.0. Very similar to TFFA, however dead players don't respawn but wait on spectator until one team is eliminated and a round is over instead. Game continues until one team hits a round limit. I believe it is better suited for mixed teams and fun events than classic TFFA because weaker players don't drag the team down by "feeding" frags and dead players can chat on spec until a round is over.

What is a draft tournament?
A draft tournament is similar to a Pick Up Game. A number of captains (usually best players) pick their teammates from a pool of participants. Such teams battle it out in one of regular tournament formats. This leads to even teams and captains sharing their knowledge and excitement with less experienced player to lead their team to the victory.

Why should I come?
If you're an active JK2 player or would like to start playing again, please don't forget, reserve your time and make sure you're there. This really matters. The NF scene struggles with low activity right now and in order to have new events and pickup games it needs a critical mass of players. If we have enough attendance on Sunday I'm sure this will lead to new events and more activity next weeks. Otherwise people who are trying to organise the community may wait until fall when there are traditionally more players.

This isn't an event only for hardcore TFFA players. The draft format was chosen so that players on all levels can play alongside, help their team and compete.

If you would like to ask some questions meet up with players, play regular TFFA pugs or use comms, join our 1.04 NF discord server: https://discord.gg/9ptNfpK

Check out this pub Clan Arena game we played today to see what this is about. Sorry for my boring POV :P

Very nice. This is how I like to play 2v2s, though preferrably the match starts in a little smaller area (like bespin) with the participants closer together, so it's less likely to start as a series of separate 1v1s.

Hopefully I'll be there.

I hope it will be at least 4x4 (4-player teams). In 2v2 draft wouldn't work so well for making balanced teams.

On a side-note: this video uses the same "vertical FOV" as fov 97 on 4:3 resolution. I think I will update fov limit so it's still optional (dmflag), but doesn't disadvantage widescreen users in next SaberMod (ie this would be max fov on 16:9 monitor).

Really need people for this. I know some KAI members will come, I wrote on SoL forums, gonna spam jka discord today and tomorrow. Ofc I'm counting on JK2 PUG discord regulars. krO will try to bring some Polish players via facebook and I invited whoever I could yesterday on the server. Please invite people who may still not know about this personally, this usually works better. If we can make it with 16 players then doors are open for next events this month.

The tournament is over and I consider it a success :-)

Over 16 players turned up for the event:

shot0013.jpg

Team captains picked up their teams, 4 teams 4 player each and we played a round robin Clan Arena tournament.

Final Standings
  1. Team stormix: stormix, hek, noob, robert
  2. Team fau: fau, shadow56579, xaro, shell, michl
  3. Team krO: krO, garga+ Liuskur, Art
  4. Team dentists: dentoN, miso, Nibler, josh
You can find particular match scores on challonge: http://challonge.com/xzds0dz7 Team tournament was a clear sweep for team stormix who didn't lose a match. Other teams took only one win and two loses each. Second, third and forth place were determined by total round wins and direct match result.

Individual Stats
  • Total score (*): 1. krO (195) 2. fau(190) 3. robert (183) 4. dentoN (152) (*) in Clan Arena you get one score for a frag and one for 50 damage dealt to enemy team
  • Score in a single match 1. fau (77) 2. krO(76) 3. robert(70) 4. krO(69)
  • Total damage dealt/received ratio 1. robert(1,75) 2. krO(1,74) 3. dentoN (1,58) 4. fau(1,54)
My personal reward goes to shadowPC who played in my team and made an incredible improvement with each next game, getting almost 1:1 damage ratio in last match (not an easy feat outside of top 5 players) :-)

Comments From Organiser

Thanks to everyone who came and made this possible and sorry for all who couldn't make it or weren't picked. I think the organisation was ok for such new and complicated event but I know some may have different opinion. In my defense I can say that actual games started around 19:20 and finished 2 hours later as I predicted. I hope this will get better as people get accustomed to this format. Also the draft idea went great and teams were very balanced.

If you couldn't make it, here are various clips from the event:

Miso's 3 Frags
Team Dentists vs Team krO
Michl Channeling The Move

I know some of you have input and complaints, please list them here so we can improve :-)

There will be next tournament with the same format next weekend, I will announce it soon. I would love to have some more competitive tournaments, but this will be possible only when the community gets back on its track again so if you're a competitive duel/tffa player, please hold on with us for a while!

Read description under youtube video. Basically everyone thought blue team has it in the bag because (a) they had 2 players vs one (b) michl had 10hp (c) there was one second left. I even wrote gg before time was out.
