Tournament - May 30, 2021
Come and participate in the first Lostria tournament! A competitive strategy game where players can test their strategic skills. The game is still in development and will see its first release available on Steam before the end of 2021.
You will find all the information on the project at the following address.
The event will take place over two days and will be broadcast live on Twitch. The Lostria beta will be open for the duration of the event allowing everyone to try the game and practice before registering.
The stream will be in French but we will remain open to the English-speaking community and answer their questions in English.
The first day will be devoted to presenting Lostria and answering questions from the community. The day will also be lively with free games that can serve as training or discovery. Registrations will close at 10 p.m. followed by an announcement from the participants.
The majority of the day will be devoted to the tournament. We will start with a reminder of the rules and the course of the tournament, followed by the first 3 rounds. A break is planned to give people time to eat and rest. We will resume the final 4 rounds to end with the announcement of the results, the interview of the winners and an announcement on the future of the project. We will remain available for a while to answer questions from the community before concluding the event.
Registration for the tournament will be on Discord. A message will appear in the animation lounge on Friday, May 28 at 8 p.m. (UTC 2). You will only need to react to register for the tournament. Registrations will end on Saturday May 29 at 10 p.m. (UTC 2) Please note that the number of places will be limited to 128 participants maximum!
How the tournament unfolds
The course of the tournament is inspired by the Swiss system. That is, all participants will have the same number of games and face opponents with the same number of wins as them. The number of rounds will be fixed at 7. Each participant will therefore have a total of 7 games to play.
The final ranking will be determined on the number of victories. In the event of a tie, the total score of the opponents faced will decide between the participants. In addition, a game ending in a tie is worth ½ points to both players.
In the event of a total tie at the top of the standings, an additional game will be made to decide between the participants.
A round begins with the announcement of the games on Discord. The person named first will take the place of player one and will be responsible for creating the custom game with the settings below. It is also advisable to add a password to your game and communicate it to your opponent in private.
Once the players are ready they can start the game whenever they want with the exception of the first three games on the list which will have to wait for a member of staff to join them as a spectator.
The version used for the tournament will be Beta 2021.05.22. Make sure you have the correct version to avoid unpleasant surprises. In the event of a bug due to a bad version, the person who caused the bug will be considered the loser.
Nothing exceptional given the lack of budget, but here is what we have prepared for prizes.
The medals will be virtual only and will be visible on your discord member card visible with the command !rank.
