Here's some quick information about the upcoming first The Walls Tournament that will be occurring next weekend. When? The tournament will last around 24 to 36 hours on Oct. 5-6. Official hours will be posted this week. How do I enter? Just by playing The Walls on that weekend when the Tournament happens, you will be automatically participating. How does it work? There will be a new stats called "Tournament Rating" that will act like a ladder system to sort out the top 10 players. Wins and kills will reward rating. Losing, leaving and dying will subtract rating. You can't go below 0 rating, don't worry about that. You will be able to see your Tournament Rating on the scoreboard in the Walls lobby. Example (Not the official numbers) Wins a game: +10 Walls Tournament Rating Kill a player: +1 Walls Tournament Rating Lose or leave game before it ends: -6 Walls Tournament Rating Death or : -1 Walls Tournament Rating Since we had limited time to make this tournament happen, we didn't use complex algorithm to make it perfectly balanced, playing as a team will be very important if you want to make it in the top 10. In the future we will separate solo and team with a tournament queuing system. What are the prizes? Official prizes will be announced this week, including but not limited to unique Walls Perks, Coins, Pets and much more. A giant podium will be in The Walls lobby for that weekend, showing the top 10 players. The prizes will be greater if you are closer to #1, the top 3 players will receive cool stuff. Over the course of the next few months we are going to have lots of tournaments and we will be trying different tournament system to find the best way for us to have tournaments more often without having the trouble of organizing one with thousands of participants. You guys have a week to prepare! What are you waiting for ? If you have any questions, please ask here. Possible that we add a maximum of game played. Not sure yet. Update - PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING This is a first tournament where we want to test water. This is not a perfect system, suggestions are good but far from being realistic in thetimeframe we have. This is just the first tournament system, we need to work on it. Stop complaining, it just shows why no one does tournament, because there will always be people complaining and it's a lot of trouble for the organizers. We can be honest here, there will never be a perfect system for everyone. Because in the end, not everyone can win, and that my friends some people can't accept that, they will blame the system and the organizers. It's like when I used to do giveaway on the servers, everyone wanted giveaways but as soon as it was over I had hate messages and people were REALLY frustrated even tho I could have just donated over 1000$ worth of stuff in 30 minutes. Everyone wants to be a winner. There is more than 100,000 unique players that plays The Walls on weekends, now with a tournament that number will double. You can't just play 5 games of walls and be #1, you have to play a lot of games to stand out, that's why our option is Ladder system using ratings. Because you guys don't have an initial "rating" we can't pair you against people of your skill so that's out of the question for a new system. To the people saying that people who play the most will win... well if they are not good enough, they will lose rating and will take way more time to get rating than other players. Good teams could win in like 8 hours and call it a day while bad team could take a week to reach the same rating. I see people complaining that they will have to play a lot... well of course you are going to play a lot, you can't just play 5 games and win the whole tournament against 200,000competitors, you need to work your rating and win but also avoid loses, which is something more interesting than some other ladders I've seen where the winner is the guy that just played the most, even tho he wasn't good. We are talking about a 24 to 36 hours timeframe, not week or even a month. We have to take in account people leaving, going afk, timezones, solo players, team players, griefers, people having RL stuff. We can't do organized matches with over 200,000 players, we need to find out who are the best players in ladders, just like League of Legends, World of Warcraft or any other games. They didn't do organized tournament before they knew who were their top players and then organize professional tournament with them. World of Warcraft for example had this place called Arena Tournament where you would fight your way up with rating, then the top teams would get to participate in the championships. However I want to have public tournament, not private where only a selected 100 people get to play over 200,000. People would complain even more because they wouldn't be able to participate. Now we are going to have a weekend full of people playing walls, along with some walls updates to make people happy. Even solo players can have fun this weekend.
