December 1st :Time For A Cash Prize 3vs3 Tournament
« on: September 02, 2017, 01:24:45 PM »
Getting cold here in montreal. That is the universal sign that winter is around the corner. Every year we kill it on the Christmas event night so I think this year we can start a little early and bring in some rail assassins to boost the playerbase for that time of year.

Beaver got the server numbers up lately with a lot of new faces.  I am seeing a lot of the newer guys make a great improvement to their railwarz gameplay. Nothing better way to encourage the masses then with a friendly competitive tourny.

I would like to do it OGL style with predetermined times for gameplay. This may be a lot to ask and may not even work out. Trying is half the battle so lets get this done.

Basic Ruling(Subject to changes)

-Teams of 4 allowing for one ringer
-Each team will face off twice at differently scheduled times (One map pick per clan), we normally do best of 3 but that rarely works because it is time consuming and has to many issues
-Wins will be 2 points and a Tie will be 1 point each clan
-Teams will be chosen via a pool of players willing to participate
-Clan leaders will consist of logical volunteers that will try and make things as fair as possible(Looking for at least 6 clans)
-Clan leaders will be drawn at random for the order of picks.
-Player picks will work in the style of a pick up game.
-Failure to have a team present the night of agreed time will lead to a forfeited match
-Teams of 4 means no outside ringers.
-Beaver will not play for every clan this time around :D (Lmao)


On a side note I would like to give a big shout out to beaver for having a vision of what he wanted to do with the server and made it happen. Good job brother.

Tournament to Begin Friday, December 1st, 2017

I am Accepting Donations for a Grand Prize incentive.

I will start the pool with 100$ to start the interest.
Prize money to be seperated evenly between the 4 players in the clan.
If you did not participate in any matches at all you forfeit your winnings to your team.
Any amount will be greatly appreciated I do not care if we build it up 2$ at a time. High Cash Prize higher interest

Grand Prize Fund :
100$ or 25$/Person

Simply reply here or contact me via facebook/email/phone with your name if you would like to participate

sounds good!

the good ol days are back!

ill play primarily defense and support!

but only if KiD runs the offense 75% of the time. maybe 50% if i feel like i can dedicate that much focus and not go AFK.

our 3rd player.

someone new and active who is still honing their skills day by day

 or someone older and dependable that wont miss a match, whose reflexes aren't quite what they used to be when they owned everyone back in the day (not saying they dont still own me every once in a while) like underlord zz4 fire retrer... i would say oldguy... but hes way better than all these old dusty farts! so that would be unfair advantage for us..   ;D

  we will decline on the ringer to save more players for the remaining 5 clans

we will pledge 75% of any earnings we win to the future of railwarz by donating them to the next tournament + another $25 from me each time we win!

our 3rd player whoever you might be can keep their earnings, please don't feel obligated to pay your earnings forward because you are on our team! :) its almost a guaranteed victory for us! but who knows maybe someone will surprise us  ::)

i hope KiD is cool with this idea, other wise ill have go to supreme commander beast mode and make housefly nipple talk you into it   :-*

Well i thought about it and i kind of feel a cash prize is just the incentive we need to pull in people right now. Hard enough to organize in the present let alone plan future events and people playing now is key with winter coming around.  Its nice if you have a chance to win a little something to. . I would also feel slightly uncomfortable with the fact that if people chip in they want to know where the cash went, I am not a big fan of "the house" taking a cut for the future. I decided to do this to support the mod now i dont want to be taking money for any other reason. Collect, play , split the pot between the winners. Everyone is happy and we had a blast doing it.


Teams are not predetermined beav. Pick up game style round robin. Minimum 6 leaders will be needed. We round up the player pool. Live stream picks #1-6 to see who gets first pick. We do numbers 1 to 6 then reverse and come back down 6 to 1. Thats the most even way to get good teams.

I misunderstood then. You do as you wish with your earnings.

Extra Extra!: email just in from unknown source!

Clan Smurf: Gargamel, Grouchy, Clumsy, Azrael, TBD, TBD

would like to challenge 3v3 4v4 5v5 and maybe up to 6v6 match sometime soon.

how soon can this challenge be accepted?

who will play them?

are these guys any good?

do they care about the tournament or just want a match vs the best?

beaver is this really the correct thread to post that? shouldnt it be posted under the challenges section?

any way...kid i had a thought that since the christmas tourny includes cash prizes, we should have all of our people use their real handles instead of aliasing...that way we can crack down on any potential botting...we know our people are good...so if some unknown name or groups of names comes in and wrecks all the rwz gods...we could accurately suspect botting.

Aliasing cant work in this style of tourny. We are doing it pick up game style to balance off the teams as much as possible. Its that or it ends up with stacked teams by choosing players.

December will work best for this tourny october is to close by. Gives us some solid planning time and we can possibly get that rwz trailer out by then and pump the hype

I spoke with clan smurf some more they didn't realize it was a cash prize tournament,  they said they aren't looking to troll anyone and are just looking to play for fun,


They would like to all enter the tournament and be drafted 1 by 1 like everyone else,

In the meantime they are open for setting up some matches just for fun for anyone who is interested in a match just to stir up some fun!

For the tournament

Kid
Beav
Reefer
Godspeed
Gargamel,
Grouchy
 Clumsy,
Azrael,

Not sure who else might be interested maybe kid n godspeed can ask around on the servers in the next couple months n add more names

people should be given a shout out email or fb post or something right now so that they can have time to get back into shape, if they dont practice in the interim then its their own fault. baver i beleive thats ur area of contacting people...but perhaps kid should do it this time since people are not as used to seeing his emails/fb post. make sure kid has the latest email list
