Title: GCRL Season 4 - Rules and Regulations
Post by: Zer0 on January 18, 2011, 11:35:08 am
Game Version
TrackMania Nations Forever  (With the latest online update applied)
Free version download available at: www.trackmania.com (http://www.trackmania.com)

Players are requested to create their own free account.

Tournament Structure
GCRL Season 4 will follow a 1v1v1v1 double elimination format. Each round will consist of a 1v1v1v1 free-for-all match, in which the top 2 players will continue in the current bracket, while the bottom 2 players will be relegated / eliminated.


General
Competition Method : 1 vs.1 vs.1 vs.1
Match winner              : The player with the most points at the end of the map.

At the end of each match players are required to save screenshots of final scores and standings. The winner of the match is required to make a post with the results and final standings screenshot. (similar to GCFL).


Game mode
The races for GCRL will be played in customized Rounds Mode. This is how the customized Rounds Mode works:

4 players join the same match, on an official server hosted by Gamer.LK. Server details will be announced shortly.

All players start at the same time.

Every run in which at least one player reaches the finish line marks a round.

After each round, the players are given points based on their standing:
               1st 10pts
               2nd 6pts
               3rd 4pts
               4th 3pts
               DNF 0pts

A single tournament round (match) will consist of one pre-determined track. List of official tracks can be found here (http://gamer.lk/index.php/topic,16781.new.html).

The match ends when the first player reaches 100 points. If there is a tie, the match continues until an outright winner is chosen by the game.

The two players with the highest score at this point qualify for the next round, while the two players with the lowest score will be relegated to the lower bracket or eliminated from the tournament.

Game Settings
Competition Mode: Rounds
Point Limit: 100
Number of winners: 1
Chat Time: 30 seconds
Finish timeout: 30 seconds for first 2 rounds. 15 seconds thereafter. 10 seconds in the final.
Opponents always visible: ON


Customization
All forms of visual customizations of vehicles are allowed.


Illegal Behavior
The use of 3rd party software that enhances performance (trainers) is illegal.

Should a player be found using such software, he may be disqualified from the tournament.
Any complaint regarding such matter should be made during the match, and will be dealt with after the race is completed.


Exploiting flaws in track design is illegal. These are defined as instances where a player can gain a time advantage by traveling through an area which is not meant to be traveled through, and is only exposed due to flaw in track design.

These are not to be confused with actual shortcuts, recovery areas (i.e. areas which allow the players to travel and recover after missing a turn, jump or stunt) and extra track areas added for complexity, which are legal and can be used in matches. (any track surface, road or dirt, is legal to use with no question).

If you are unsure which is which, please contact an admin before using such a route in a match. Exploitation of a known or unknown flaw during a match to generate an unfair advantage will lead to a warning, which could lead to a disqualification.


Disconnections
Since the tournament will be played online there could be instances where disconnections occur. In case of a disconnection the following should be observed.

If a player disconnects during a race, it would continue to the end of the current round. The game will be paused for a reasonable amount of time until the player reconnects.

IF however, a player appears to be disconnecting intentionally to avoid losing or disrupt the match, the race may continue at the discretion of the admin.

If any player abuses the pause time (i.e. race to gain points before the referee announces the race restart), he shall be warned and removed from the game. If any player persists in this action, he may be disqualified from the tournament.

When the game starts, without clicking play, click config, then put settings to low.

 :yawn: hey this is unfare! why these funny tracks?! This will be another typical event that the same ppl winning! just put tracks that can see where to go!! The ppl whose making this maps will win!! I have spent more than 1 hour in per track  to find the freaking way!! its very annoying that this will be a fare event! ..Dont you people know that even F1 races are played in tracks that every one can have a chance!! this is just stupid. Its more like posing
Then they wil say "WE ARE THE PLAYERS U NOOBS!!"   (N) (N)  :no:  :no:

Haha, I must admit it, in certain tracks I kinda got lost :P, but it's not all that bad. Don't make such a big fuss.

Like I said, these are official WCG tracks, so quit whining. Even I played the WCG'10 maps only today. I admit they are hard. But not impossible if you practice for half an hour.

Oh btw, If you are new to TM dont start on these maps. Try to get gold medals in atleast half of the normal maps to get used to the handling of your car and the physics.

:yawn: hey this is unfare! why these funny tracks?!

These funny tracks because they have been accepted as the standard competitive maps internationally last year. It wasn't chosen by us, but by organisers who are a lot more knowledgeable about competitive TMNF than you or me.
