Full Version: Quake III Rules - 1v1 Duel
Respawn LAN Forums > Official > Lan Information > Competition Rules
SirSquidness
The Quake III tournament will be 1v1 duels, run in single elimination rounds.

Each round will consist of a single 10 minute match, except for the last two rounds which will be best of three format.

We will be using vanilla Quake III in tournament mode with the following maplist:
pro-q3dm6, pro-q3tourney2 (optional), q3dm13, pro-q3tourney4,hubaeroq3, cpm3a(optional), ztntourney3

Maps marked optional will only be played if both players agree to them.

Registration for the competition will close 10 minutes before the competition is scheduled to start. It is recommended to use our Respawn LAN System Tray Notifier and Annoyer Tool for up to date notifications.

Should a player take more than 10 minutes to make themsevles known to competition organisers when requested or more than 10 minutes to join their designated server without approval from competition organisers, it will be considered a forfeit.

Players should all record a personal demo. In the event of cheat accusations, player demos from both people will be used. If the accuser has a demo showing cheating, and the accused cannot provide a demo to counter the claims, guilt will be assumed and forfeit given.

Demo recording is done by typing the following in to the console:
/record demo_name_here

Please ask if you need any clarifications.
See you at the LAN

What are the last round three formats
SirSquidness
As said in the post, "Best of three". You play three matches. First person to two wins is the winner.

The general idea is to have your games patched and up to date prior to the LAN, as has always been the case smile.gif

Seriously, lazy? That's a bit rude. If you saw how many servers and competitions he had to manage, you would realise that he is very far from being lazy. As always, keeping your game installation fully patched and up to date is the responsibility of the player; we only host them when possible as a convenience for the players.

then how come the patch was never hosted he could have asked another admin to place it on the intranet.
Considering it was a major comp not a fun comp

It is not our responsibility to provide copies of patches for you. They are all freely available on the internet for you to download before you come.

If you are unorganised enough to come to the LAN without having your game updated, it's your own fault. The update mirror is there as a convenience, not as your right and our responsibility.

As I said to you at the event, the patch will have been on the network somewhere. I even pointed you to someone who would know where it was, as I was incredibly pre-occupied at the time.

In future, I would avoid coming on here and calling us LAZY.

Not to be a hater, but if this runs at v16 (And I pray it does) i'd change these rules quite a lot for next time as there pretty far from the norm. (y)

I'd say how but maybe when it's not 3:15 in the morning. Will post again tomorrow.

Please do. Constructive feedback is appreciated.

This is pretty much the ruleset that was used at all major Quake competitions (ESWC, Quakecon, CPL) (And current ones such as the Asus LAN) before they switched over to using QuakeLive. In short this is/was considered the "competitive standard" for Quake 3 in a single elimination comp:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Client setup
Challenge Promode Arena (CPMA) 1.47 will be installed on all computers along with two different executable:

Game settings
QUAKE 3 1.32
CPMA 1.47
Default VQ3 gameplay settings using CPMA mod
Timelimit: 15 minutes
Overtime: 2 minutes
Single Elimination bracket
Best of 3

Maps
The maplist contains the following maps:
* pro-q3dm6
* pro-q3tourney4
* ztn3tourney1
* hub3aeroq3
* pro-nodm9

Matches are played in best of three maps. The player who reaches two maps won will be declared winner of the match.

Map picking procedure:
A coin toss will decide who is player A and player B
Player A picks one of the 5 remaining maps.
Player B picks one of the 4 remaining maps.
Player A removes one of the 3 remaining maps.
Player B removes one of the 2 remaining maps.
In the event of a tie, the last map remaining will be used as a tie-breaker.
The same map canít be removed or picked twice.

I like this set up its very afficient and easy to do so

Seconded. Thx to Tree_ for the idea of using the CPMA mod w/ vq3 physics to allow brightskins, etc etc.

I approve.

Assuming you have all the maps from the point release as well as the ones found here, Quake 3 1.32 Point release and CPMA mod installed in the base folder and are using the CNQ3 executable, here are all files required to run a dedicated server (not tested thoroughly).

Batch file script to run Dedicated server from CNQ3.exe (an alternative q3 exe):

CODE
cnq3.exe +set dedicated 1 +exec cfg\respawnserver.cfg


Config File. Goes in ..\Quake 3\cpma\cfg, executed by dedicated server console by exec cfg\respawnserver.cfg

CODE
// almost everything is set to sensible defaults in CPMA
// the only exceptions are cvars that are "poisoned" by baseq3

// change these  :)
set ref_password abc
