Knockouts Started


Description:
  • WA version 3.8 or higher is required
  • Sign up opened until the mods decide there are enough players or it has been long enough
  • Group stage games will be best-of-three games, knockout games including semifinals and the final will be best-of-five games. The terrain type sequence should be open-open-cave-cave for best-of-three games and cave-cave-open-open for best-of-five games, but the terrain type can be anything as long as both players agree.
  • Read the scheme description for very important information about the scheme
  • Each round you can choose only one type of special/team weapon to use:  pigeons (x2), sheep launcher (x1), aqua-sheep (x1), holy hand grenade (x1), flamethrower (x1), cows (x2) or old woman (x1). Moles do not count as special weapon. In different rounds you can use different special weapons. If in one round you use more than one type of special weapon, you lose the round. For example, you can use 2 cows on round 1 and 2 pigeons on round two, but you cannot use cows and pigeons on round 1
  • Komito will be streaming some of the matches, players cannot refuse to have their game streamed and are not allowed to watch the streaming of the match they are playing
  • There will be a $40 prize for the winner. Will be paid via PayPal only, if you cannot accept PayPal or are too young to receive the money, you can choose to donate it elsewhere
  • You can check the recorded stream from the previous tournament to learn more about the scheme
  • The correct scheme must be used, any alteration to the official Cup scheme will result in a void game, and you will need to play again.

Cup #1123, 80-normal
« on: July 28, 2021, 12:08 AM »
Signups for the 80hp Cup are now open!

About "players cannot refuse to have their game streamed and are not allowed to watch the streaming of the match they are playing"

This is really aimed at the Knockout stage, for the group stage I wouldn't worry so much about it, potentially you could have multiple players playing at the same time, or they simply bump into each other online.

The games that are absolutely crucial to organize and stream though are from the Quarter-Finals onwards, those games must be organized in advance. I'd like to stream as many others as possible during the group stage though nothing bad will happen if you just go ahead and play it, we encourage activity!

I'm not very sure about this. I would love to play Dario's scheme and I'm willing to get somewhat brutally annihilated on stream too. I would love to play it just for fun rather than indulging into an obsessive and scupulous analysis of how should I place this dynamite, how should I do that, or even writing down the rotation of the enemy's worms... And all that sort of stuff that just isn't for me. I'm deliberately playing like a noob in that sense, but if hypothetically speaking I could win without having fun, I would rather lose and having fun. So that's my mindset for this. What is really stopping me at this point is the lineup. Those guys are veterans, brutal, and amazing. It's ok for me to lose, even annihilated as I said earlier - but with them? Annihilation is reductive. It will be a merciless bloodbath, an embarassment fully displayed in livestream! I don't know about this. I must think about it. I'll be watching, that much is for sure.

EDIT: It seems there's only a place left. That's not even a question then, I would rather want my place to go to someone like Korydex. That will make it much more fun to watch.

You don't need to worry about playing serious.

If you want to play for fun, play for fun! If you want to play serious and try to win the money, go for it!

If you really enjoy something for fun, do it! Eventually you will be a veteran yourself, that's how we all ended up veterans of Worms Armageddon in various schemes.

Also, signups will be kept open for around a week, there is still space left to join. Cups work different from Tournaments remember. We are hoping to have between 16-32 players.

I think there should be guidance for new intermediate players helping them improve the tactics, make them learn how to put dynamite, what to do in case of unfair placements etc.
The guide should be expert players like for example Dario, maybe Korydex, Mablak, chuvash etc.
It's been more than 9 years when I got into Worms, and I still suck at executing tactics or putting dynamite in low gravity mode. It'll be good guidance for newbs like me, and other new players. Maybe these players can improve and become stronger with some guidance and we may get more competition.
Just my thoughts. :)



Adnan, you are Mega, not Micro and not even faint  :D So fight till the end please.

Not dynamite, mines, though still useful:

...

...

Thanks. I know and have read all these guides, but I still need some time to put it into practice. Sometimes I pull it off, but it's too unpredictable right now... Someday, someday...!

...

I didn't know that, so I have almost a week to think about it. That's enough time. Not enough to grind, but surely enough to come up with a choice. What about the time of the cup anyway? I can't find this information anywhere on the page, perhaps it's just me... Do you still need to come up with that or am I missing something?

I'm not sure if you realize this, though Cups work differently from Tournaments:

Tournaments:

TUS Tournaments are events which have a signups time which lasts usually around 10-30 minutes, then once signups are closed pairings are immediately drawn, players go straight into the Knockout Stage and generally they are all present and active and finish all their games there and then within a matter of hours.

Cups:

Cups are events in which signups can last for anything up to a few weeks or more, once there are enough players the pairings are done and players are organized into Groups. If there are 4 groups, of 4 players, they must all play each other once, the top 2 players from each group are advanced to the Knockout Stage, from there the format is exactly the same as a Tournament although the difference is they organize games in advance just like how CWT/ONL PO works.

With Cups, the moderator will decide a deadline for players to finish their games, once that deadline has been reached the moderator will deal with any Groups or players who have unfinished games as they see fit.

Once the Cup begins, players are responsible for checking who their opponents are and then organizing their own games as efficiently as possible.

Cups usually take anywhere between 2 weeks and several months to finish.

I see, so it must be decided after all the users have signed up. I like that, because it negates the issue of different timezones, in a way that everyone can decide the right time for them and act accordingly. That's all I needed to know.
