This is a Specific Rule Set for this Cup Type. The General Cup Rules also apply to this Cup.
1.1) Map Picking
The Player on the left side or at the top of the Matchup on the Cup Tree begins with the Map Picking.
The Map Picking process is done in turns. First Player A, then Player B, ... and so on.
First each Player bans two Maps from the Map Pool (in turns, 1 Map at a time). Then each Player picks a Map from the Map Pool. Finally each Squad bans Maps from the remaining Map Pool until one Map is left. This Map is called the Tie-Breaker Map.
Example: 9 Maps in the Map Pool. (Player A is on the left side in the Cup Tree, so they begin) Player A bans 1 Map. Player B bans 1 Map. Player A bans 1 Map Player B bans 1 Map. 5 Maps left in the Map Pool. Player A picks a Map. Player B picks a Map. 3 Maps left in the Map Pool. Player A bans a Map. Player B bans a Map. 1 Map left in the Map Pool. This Map is the Tie-Breaker Map.
The server for the Tie-Breaker Map can be chosen by the Player with more overall frags in the first two Maps.
2.1) Match Phase
The first Map that has to be played is the Map of the Player that started with the Map Picking.
A Map is won when the final score on the Map is higher than their opponents score.
The Tie-Breaker Map has to be played when both Players win one Map (1:1) or if both Maps are a draw (2:2).
The Match is won when a Player reaches two Map Points. This can happen in 4 different ways: A) The Player wins the first two Maps. (2:0) B) The Player wins one of the first two Maps and the Tie-Breaker Map. (2:1) C) The Player wins one of the first two Maps and has a draw on the other. (2:1) D) The Player has a draw on the first two Maps and wins the Tie-Breaker Map. (3:2)
In case of a draw on the Tie-Breaker Map, a Shorty (#.# start shorty | mp_timelimit 10;mp_fraglimit 10) has to be played. If there is still a draw after the Shorty, repeat this step.
3.1) Match Reports
Match Reports have to be made as stated in the General Cup Rules.
Additional Screenshots (Shorty screenshots) can be added in the comments.
If you have a draw on a Map, report it as a 'win'.
If you had a draw on the Tie-Breaker Map and won the Shorty, report this Map as a 'win'.
guys I cant play on #1 VirtuousGamers.EU - Ranked Matching - [Germany] steam ask me "disconnect: need VPN please contact Admin for approval" LOL i have no VPN on my pc .SUGGESTIno? write me also in pv thx
The main VG server ran out of storage space for its demo's even if we compress them (You guys have been playing A LOT!). Because of this the very old demo's are now moved to a new storage server you can find on storage.hl2dm.eu . Our match links are automatically updated once the demo has been uploaded but if you find a really old demo link somewhere and its down this is where to look.
