Hello fellow racers !

4 months ago, the Rollcage Summer Tournament 2015 occured, which was won by K.Mac

(you can watch the videos of the finales in the RollcageTV channel)

Soon (the 9th of January), the Rollcage Winter Tournament 2016 will start. This time, it's going to be a Neo-mode tournament.

The rules
  • We will all use the latest Rollcage Redux build, by codemonkey
  • Races will be in Neo-mode. If you don't know what neo-mode is, read this
  • No Yuri. Sorry for the Yuri lovers
  • 12 laps per track (15 was way too long in the last tournament)
  • 3/4 tracks per league
  • No shortcut allowed ! The only exceptions are :
    • Daytona
    • Smugglers
    • Eruption
    • Flood Zone
  • Double Elimination tournament, in leagues of 4 people :
    • Within each league, a Rollcage-like point system is adopted (+10 for the first, +6 for the second, +4 for the third, +0 for the fourth)
    • At the end of each league, the third and fourth players are eliminated
    • You lose the tournament when you have been eliminated 2 times
    • The finale (1st vs 2nd places) will be a best of 5 in 1v1, with maps chosen along a pick/ban system
    (look at this nice chart for details)
  • 16 participants would be a perfect number. But the tournament can be adapted for more or less people.

Appliance
While no specific rules apply, it is better for you if you have a stable connection. If you don't, you literally stand no chance since you will be continuously desynchronized with everyone.

The best way to know if you have a stable enough connection is to squat one of our weekly games ;)

Track listing
This time, we will keep it simple (following Dups' idea), and play on the same tracks than the Gemini, Scorpio and Taurus leagues.
The only exception will be for the finale, where every track will be allowed, including the Training track.

Prize
Even though i am open to discussions, i am reluctant to have a prize for two main reasons:
  • This competition is more about having fun together and show our skills, and I would not want people to be stressed or angry if they don't get the prize.
  • Rollcage is far from being without bugs, and there might be situations where you lose the race not because of your skills but because of technical difficulties (bad ping, small desynchronizations, stuff like that - people who play in the weekly games know what i'm talking about).

Subscribing
If you are interested, please subscribe on this sheet. Fill all the cells please :)
  • We need hosts - people who can successfully host a Rollcage game. In order to host, you need to forward the TCP port 21000 on your router, and set up correctly your firewalls/antivirus. If you're not sure whether you can host or not, send me a message on steam.
  • We also need a couple of twitchers to cover at least the finales (the best case scenario would be to have enough twitchers to cover the full tournament of course)
  • Finally, I need to know various stuff, including a link to your steam profile, so that I can add you as friend on steam. No worries, no spam guaranteed.

Deadline
The subscriptions for the tournament are opened until the 15th of December. So make sure to subscribe before this date !

I considered joining until I saw neo mode. I can barely control the damn things in neo.
I didn't even know what was in the splatter pack before I bought it.

Broscar's a scrub and refuses to play unless he's allowed to play on 1337-mode lol ;-)

I suppose Broscar will only participate in the Winter tournaments, while you will only be there for the Summer tournaments.
You should consider making a team :D

Just remember though that the main purpose of the tournament is just to have some fun.
Especially since it's a double elimination this time : you have two chances before going out of the tournament,
which makes it less frustrating for the people who are beginners and/or not good with Neo mode.

You will race in at least two leagues, no matter what

I did some practicing on Neo mode.

God the AI suck so bad on Neo mode, lol. Doesn't make good training at all... also Jet is scary, I'm tempted to switch to Ria or Leon just so steering isn't so damn twitchy when I'm in 4th and boosting at 700km/h...

Sounds interesting, but I oughta practice some Neo Mode first. I had serious trouble driving the Genesis in Extreme: doin' donuts without wanting to do donuts.
And the Dutch said: "Wees zuinig", and thus, somewhat later, we had the moneyz.

Neo Mode is harder than driving Genesis in Rollcage Stage 2.

So yeah, I think you might need a little bit of practice - but out of 16 people (if that much subscribes), i'm sure you won't be the only one to not master Neo mode.

If you need practice, one of the best places to learn are the weekly games.

We even have some tips for you as a starter in neo.

lol, I'm just not used to driving at 650km/h and correcting mistakes at that sort of speed is hard. I'm sure by January I'll be fine.

I'm sure even Broscar fucks up during 10 laps of a track on Neo mode. :P

Yeah, it's hard and as you said, Broscar and I are messing up time to time in a race.
You just need to learn how to correct your problems at an early stage (the time you still have some control ;) ) and to know the signs that you're going to lose control.

Sure you still try to race perfectly, but it's a fact you will have problems in a race.
But that is the fun of it in my opinion.

I tried Rollcage redux for the first time a few days ago, geez the controls are just awful, at least if you try to use a controller like I did :?
For you experienced players, what's your controller/keyboard config? I had turning and going forward both on the left joystick and it was way too hyper-responsive, any tap to any direction sort of made me fly off the map, do I just need to git gud?
You're just a voice pal.
