Multiplayer Doom Federation is pleased to announce another edition of the Take The Crown series, a two-day FFA Tournament that will officially be a part of the QuakeCon @ Home celebration! Beginning with the group stage on Saturday, August 8th @ 3PM EDT, participants will battle through a series of rounds to accumulate the most points. The top 6 players with the most points in the group stage will advance to the FFA Finals, being held on Sunday, August 9th @ 12PM EDT, for their chance to take the crown.
THAT'S NOT ALL...
The FFA Finals will be streamed LIVE on Bethesda's OFFICAL TWITCH! You read that right – you’ll get a chance to showcase your fragging skills on the big stage and show the world that Doom II will never die.
But wait, there’s more ~ we’ll be giving out a $750 prize (350/250/150), along with t-shirts and posters (some items given out randomly).
Signups are now open and will close on Friday, August 7th @ 11:59PM EDT. You may signup through our Toornament page or in our Discord server, however you will be required to join our Discord 1 hour prior to gametime to check in.
Odamex: The tournament will be held on the source port Odamex. You must make sure you have the latest version downloaded. Please follow the download link to find the latest version, and join the official Odamex Discord for help and support.
HOW DOES THE FFA TOURNAMENT WORK?
All players of a particular round join the server at once and will play the same number of maps, but the actual lineup of each round will be randomized. Admins will announce the player lineup for every following round, and the selected players will join the game and the map will be restarted for them. This should speed up the proceedings while keeping the event spiritually free-for-all. If it’s not your round, you simply idle in the server. The maps have been chosen for their variation of styles (pace, spam, player/frag/time limit) and we’ll try to make sure everyone plays across all of them, but this part will be heavily dependent on the player signups and randomization. It should ensure, however, that you don’t meet the same opponents often.
