Relic and the community are working together to create the best patch for you. While the community balance team and Relic are busy putting together the patch, we are hosting a 4v4 tournament to test the December Balance Preview! Get ready for some good, balanced, EPIC games :hyper:



The team captains start off with a coin toss. The winning team can choose to either pick factions or save the last veto in the map veto process. Obviously, if the winner of the coin tosses chooses to pick the faction, the loser gets the first veto (which means they also have the last veto) and vice versa. The map will be determined from the map pool before picking factions.

Map Vetoes and Faction Selection

Map vetoing will be done first. So if the winning team of the coin toss chooses to pick the faction, it is not obliged to pick the faction until the map is determined.

  • Once paired with an opposing team, team captains from both teams are required to check-in on battlefy. Once every team checks in, their opponents will have 15 minutes to also check-in or they will automatically forfeit the match. Once both teams have checked in, they are required to use the PRIVATE CHAT feed located on their match page to communicate with their opponent and set up the match. Once the match is ready to start, one or both teams MUST report in the PRIVATE CHAT feed that their match has begun.
  • For the first match, the teams will alternate vetoes until there is only one map left. This map will also be played in game 2.
  • If the winner of the coin toss chooses to have the last veto, the winner must make the first veto.
  • If the winner chooses to have the first pick of faction, the loser must make the first veto.
  • If there is a game 3, the veto process is repeated. Instead of a new coin toss, the team with more victory points in their winning game– regardless of the VPs of the losing side – can again chose to either pick factions or have the last veto. Game 3 has to be played on a different map than Game 1. This means that if the winner of the coin toss chooses to have the last veto, the loser will this time start vetoing.
  • When all games are done, report who won with which score in the PRIVATE CHAT of the matchup. Do NOT forget to do this!

Other Details

  • Lateness can result in VP penalties or worse, as decided by the referees.
  • 5 min break between games; in special cases, the referees may grant longer breaks. Longer breaks are not allowed without permission by a referee.
  • Match fixing - including not playing to full potential against clanmates is disallowed.
  • Please restart CoH2 before any tournament game activity, and close external programs before playing to avoid crashes.
  • Bugsplats: If there is a bugsplat within 7 minutes the game will be replayed, unless there happened something very special.
    In this case the referees make a decision of what will happen. If there is a bugsplat after 7 minutes the referees will do either one of these things:
    • If both teams agree, the game will be replayed.
    • If both teams do not agree to replay and if there is a clear winner according to the referees, this team will be given the win. In case there is no clear winner the referees will make a decision of what is going to happen.

    However, the team that bugsplatted has to screenshot the crash with windows time/date showing! If this does not happen within 5 minutes the referees are allowed to give the win to the team that did not bugsplat.
  • If there is any sign of cheating during the games, contact the referees.
  • The team captain of the winning team of the match must upload all 2-3 games, and link them in this special thread. You run the risk of being banned from future events if you do not upload all your games! So do not forget!

Please upload the replays with a special name:
4v4DBP/Round(R1, R2, etch.)/Game Number(G1, G2, or G3)/Your Name - Opponent's Name)

Here is an example of how you should post your replays in the special thread:

Use the Insert Replay function in the reply editor to link your replays: that is the button to the right of the Twitch icon.

FaHu will be live casting as many games as he can! Make sure to tune in on his channel and who knows, there might be guest casters!

In closing

If there are any things that are unclear during the tournament, speak with the organizers. They will look at the problem and make a decision. Be aware that their decision is final! If you have any other questions, you can always PM |GB| The Hooligan or Currahee. Communicating to a referee during the tournament can be done by chatting in the steam group, linked in this thread above. You will be able to ask for a referee on the discord of COH2.ORG as well, but we can't guarantee a referee will immediately see your message there. For direct questions please use the chat box of the steam group or the discord channel of COH2.ORG . You can also flag your match in battlefy, but we cannot make sure that a referee will check what is wrong because battlefy sometimes bugs out.
