In a best of 1 format, there isn't really a fair decision that we can make in the rules because we don't know the impact. We will literally have to observe whether a bug like that was game changing.

I want to try and avoid making any judgement calls during games where possible


In a best of 1, would the impact of being ghost vs early lights be even higher? Any mistake is permanent and there are no further games. Welcome back btw :welcome: :wave:

Thanks ShadowLink!

Mistakes are permanent and if there is a serious bug, I think it can be considered for a rematch. I'm just not prepared to put a rule in this event that says if 'x' happens, then player 'y' will win because I think that all situations needs to have appropriate attention and consideration.

Basically, I'm not denying that a bug could be disastrous for someone on a winning streak. But I feel that it is a situation we will deal with as it happens. I'm very confident in our ability as a moderation and ref team to make the right decisions as we have had to on so many occasions.

If there is significant loss to the player who loses the game, then I may even consider giving them some kind of consolation prize such as some cash output or another chance to contest the King in the next game (usually it's one chance per week)

Hey Spanky,

Thanks for putting this forward to me.

This tournament is all about showcasing new maps and community content etc, so I will certainly have a look at this. If it passes our assessment of being a fair map then I will have it included in the map pool specially for you.

I really like this map btw. My one comment would be that I think it could be a better map if the fuel and munitions point for each player were swapped with each other so that the high fuel point for each player is further away.

My reasoning for this is that giving a high fuel point to each player could result in the map becoming axis favoured as the fuel stacks up over the game time.

I'm happy to use it in its current form, but I do believe that the map would be more competitive with this adjustment. Happy to discuss!

Rolled out an update! Have a look. Made more pathways thru forest areas and re-balanced cover around the map, especially around points.



Edit: Should i make the fuel cut off?

Stormless and A_E, I'll post two other maps I've made in the recent years, but they are not so important, perhaps you like them as well. :) Worth a shot.

Hey dude,

Thank you for posting this and making a revision so quickly :)

I'm going to take a look at it later on this evening, I'm not going to put it into the first week untested but I will update the map pool next week with this in.

As for the other two, I'll check these out for you too.

Bayeux map updated, fuel sector now moved, pathing opened and cover balanced. Should be good to go.
