Ok after 3 weeks solid video editing in every spare second I had (only 3 games of FAF ahhh), here is Championship trailer for this year :D

My game capture skills got better over time but didn't have time to go back and recapture some of the earlier footage and get the video out this week.

Could not get "Screenshot Mode" to work at all. One scene took 9 attempts to capture and the amount of times I forgot to move the cursor off screen, omg :?

Anyway Enjoy!!

For the record, i payed up the exchange fees and transfer fees (30 AUD), but im not going to be paying for the transfer fees to other players, that would get me bankrupt :(

This means that players won't receive the full prize, but about 3-5% less, unless i win a lotery, then they receive 3-5% more!



Hi Tokyto,

Please send winning players full prize amount and let me know the additional cost, and I will send you extra money to cover it. Also please take your 30AUD for fees back out of money already sent, I'll send extra after the first two tornies once we understand the extra cost ;)

Thanks for organising.

Hello,

i'm afraid it's too late to send them the full prize for this qualifier tournament. Already sent everyone the money :(

The fees aren't actually that big, so i'm happy to pay for that (I hope the quality is good enough on this screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/4ClXJFu.png). So i will pay the full prizes up until the grand finals starting from the next qualifier tournament.

Thanks again for everything!

Tokyto.

I mean there's no reason this can't be done. I'll see about finding you and ironing out some of the details.

Rainbow Cup II - Alliance's - 4v4 - $400 Prize Pool

Postby Fearghal » 13 May 2018, 04:43

I have an idea for a tournament I would like to sponsor,
and pledge $500 towards, as explained below:
(now scheduled for July 7th, 2018 - https://forums.faforever.com/viewtopic. ... 77#p164917

"Rainbow Cup II - Alliance's"
4 vs 4 tournament, - u7200, - Veterans

$400 prize pool (+$100 to TD, to cover payment's and fee's).
1st Place = $220
2nd Place = $120
3rd Place = $60

Capped at u7200 team combined rating.
100 games played requirement (Veterans)

Each team will consist of 2 factions only,
......and be different from opponents 2 factions.
...... hence the "Alliance's" part of the Tournament Title:
............ie: Team 1 = Aeon and Sera only, and Team 2 = UEF and Cybran only.


For this tournament a faction based colour system is to be enabled as follows:
Each player MUST match their selected faction with a faction approved color -
Failure to pick proper color, may be cause for DQ at TD's discretion.
........see chart below.

In the game lobby before launch, the following conditions shall apply:*

1- The top team in bracket is to be Team #1, and bottom team is Team #2.
2- All players take "a" position on their side of map, and start with "random faction" selected.
3- Team #1 then acts first and has one player reveal a faction, pick color and "x" up,
4- Team #2 acts second and has two players reveal 2 different factions, color and "x" up,
.............(The 2 factions they reveal, are now their "Alliance", and
................. their remaining picks are chosen from this alliance).
5- Team #1 reveals the final 4th faction, (this step creates their alliance) and
..................then reveals their last 2 players.
6- Team #2 then reveals their last 2 players.

*notes:
......1- During the "reveal" the player must also pick a faction appropriate color.
......2- At end of the "reveal" the player will "x" up, and cannot move there after.
......3- Players may change positions before and up until their own reveal.
......4- Teams meeting for a 2nd time will reverse the order of the "reveal" for fairness.

Below is a sample game ready for launch

................ Some thoughts on this proposed tournament.
1-Rainbow......An army has to be in uniform. Teams and Factions should be easily recognized by a color system.
2-Veterans.....100 games is good for encouraging people to play more often,
.......................and allow other players to have a player history with each other.
3-Alliance.....Realism! - It is more realistic that the Same factions would be on same side, and not fighting each other.
4-u7200......The previous "Rainbow Cup" u7000, on May 12th had more than 20 teams enter.
................Attracting more than 84 players was amazing,
................Bumping rating cap to u7200 is to shoot for the magic sweet spot of 16 teams for this "Rainbow Alliance Cup"!
................Similar rating = possible rematches - Noob, Vegetable, GB, + Epic Synergy stacks at the finals again?
5-Variety.....Players who usually play only one faction, will likely have to play a different faction in at least one match.
...............The order of reveal in lobby pre game will be an important strategic consideration.
...............Pick your Alliance's well!
