PS4 Droid Run Sign Ups are Now Open!

Post#1 » Sun Feb 26, 2017 6:31 am

Hello everyone, the sign ups are now officially open for our first Droid Run tournament on PS4.

You can sign up by clicking this link:
CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP
Sign ups will be open from now until midnight eastern time on March 9th.


I am setting the initial signup deadline for a little less than 2 weeks from today, on a Thursday night this time. This is because I feel like most of the teams now only play matches once a week on the weekend. By starting on a Friday this will hopefully result in some teams doing matches right away.

Also please note that it is entirely possible that we will be extending this signup phase past March 9th. The past couple tournaments we have had to extend the signups to get a solid number of teams, so I would expect the same to happen here unless something changes. If we do get a decent amount before the 9th though we can start right away. If the signups begin to drag on for too long we will cut them off at some point even if we have to end them at an odd number. If that happens then we will most likely have to do a format like double elim.

We had 18 teams sign up for Drop Zone III on PS4, so a good goal in my opinion would be to get 18 or greater teams. The real goal is to get as many as possible, as always though. If you guys could please tell your friends / teammates / rivals what the signup link is, that would be greatly appreciated. (You can copy and paste from the PS4 browser into PSN messages).

As usual I will wait approximately 1 week into the signup phase to see who signs up of their own accord or through the efforts of you guys, and then I will start posting on the DICE forums, reddit, the reddit discord, PSN communities, and sending PSN messages to past teams and new teams if I manage to find any.

The competition committee voted for this mode. There was no public game mode poll, we stopped doing those on PS4 SWBF 3 after we made the competition committee in September.

Okay so we just hit the initial deadline that we had set for the signup phase. At the time of me writing this we are at 14 teams. We have decided that we can maybe get a couple more teams if we give everyone a little more time, so we are going to be extending the signups until Monday night. The new deadline is midnight eastern time on the night of March 13th, 2017.

There's potential to go a tiny bit past this, but I don't see a scenario where we don't start everything on next Thursday late at night at the latest. If it goes that long it will have been just a little under 3 weeks of a signup phase.

Would it be too late to recommend a best of 5 map series for the finals?

Yea we were talking about doing it at some point in the tourney past the early rounds.

So, if we do groups then it would be the bracket after the groups that becomes best of 5s like you guys were mentioning. If we get a weird number and have to do double elimination then it will become best of 5 at some stage in the bracket. Maybe around top 8. Gotta see the final number of teams before we can really finalize at what point it'll be best of 5, but yea I will get it in the rules when I update the format part after signups are over.

We are at 15 teams right now and the deadline is tomorrow night at midnight if its not extended. Sixteen teams would work out nicely for a group stage.

EDIT: We hit 17 teams!
