    Shotty Open League™ News

    I should have made this thread since a long time already (but I haven't haha). So let's begin with two major informations:

    1) Introducing MAP VETO!

    Newer tournaments from SOL that will feature a complete map pool will give the possibility to the players (and teams) to veto the maps that they don't want. How does it work?

    during the swiss stage (BO1), the maps will be given by random.org (each map will have it's own number)
    during the playoffs (BO3), each player will be given the possibility to veto 3 maps off the map pool, the two remaining maps will be played. In case of 1 - 1, one map will be randomly choosen by random.org.
    during the grand final (BO5), each player will be given the possibility to veto 2 maps off the map pool, in case of 2 - 2, the last map will be choosen by random.org.

    Important: a map cannot be played more than once in the same match.

    all of that being clarified, let's go straight to the second major information:

    2) Unveiling the AllStars 2018 official map pool!

    1. Little Trouble
    2. The Lost Tomb
    3. Sun Palace
    4. Docking Bay
    5. Pro Fortress
    6. Figona Clan Map
    7. Rafinery
    8. Crush



    That does 4 native maps, 3 community maps and one halfway being the Pro Fortress as it features only minor modification. The map pack will be provided with the official registration thread which will be opened once I will be ready.

    So since I got a little bit of free time lately, i'll take the time to write a note about what's up at the SOL tournaments:

    I was really really enthusiast for the AllStars 2018 tournament and it really saddens me to see that the players who were playing it are gone. However, I am still not closing this tournament! I will work on what to do with it in the future and I WILL do something out of it, I swear we will play this tournament and finish it, even if that means I have to purge it and begin again from zero. Will work on what's possible to do.


    BUT for now, all attention is towards the Classics 2019, a small tournament to make the remaining players around here to play in a more conventionnal format. With this tournament I expect to pick the attention of those who're still watching us from afar and give them the envy to come back for some action.

    The Grand champion of this tournament will be featured in the reworked Featured thread (now separated from the main SOL thread). By the way, I will also be working on finally getting Destroyer, Klesk and Phenomenon in the featured.

    Last statement is regarding the Championship: It is clear that this project won't go any further with such a small community, by consequences it is stopped right now. From now on, all the focus will be for the small Classics tournaments and the remake of the AllStars 2018.

    Due to my image host's doing a global purge, many of the pictures including screenshots of the results may be broken. If you see any broken image please notify me, thanks!

    Shotty Open League major updates:

    - Tournament systems have been readapted to the SS community, we will hardly reach 16 players in tournaments so the qualifiers does no longer exist. Instead i'm introducing two types of tournaments: Stars Series which will contain ShottyStars; AllStars and TeamStars, and Classics Series which can be anything else, any tournament time on a classic double elimination format, Stars Series will remain with the swiss system.

    - TeamSeries has been renamed TeamStars and I am actually working on the possibilities of doing a team tournament soon

    - Map veto rules have been updated

    - A FTTH dedicated server will be available in January for west EU players

    further updates are planned concerning team tournaments, studying the possibility of cutting half the swiss format for stars series.

    Introducing the Ladder! The ladder is the average ratio of players who played one or many SOL events. How does it work? the same way as the MVP but instead calculating the ratio of frag per game, it's the ratio of average ratio (MVP) per tournament.

    what happens if you don't play a tournament? your ratio will decrease for inactivity. one tournament not played and your ratio will be divided by 1,2. next one is 1,3, next one is 1,4 and so on. If you play one tournament and are inactive again the next one, your ratio will be divided by 1,2 again and so on if you're inactive again.

    This ladder brings who's the best contender of the SOL events. I expect this little feature to motivate people to play the tournaments, there's a #1 place waiting to be taken.

    We will not need any donation since the server would be running on a personnal computer, but we won't be exploiting the !map feature sadly. We'll go the old F9 way.

    Thanks for proposing though
