Its time! The tournament the community voted for and everyone has been waiting for! BATTLEFIELD 3! 4v4 Squad rush tournament!

This post will contain the rules and the format the tournament will be played. I will try and be as brief as possible in posting but as always please leave comments or concerns you may have about any information in regards to it.

Rules
We will be using part of the TWL 'league' rules that have been set for BF3.

- Standard code of conduct is expected during gameplay. This means you must use appropriate attitude and general sportsmanship during the event. No racism or "omg noob" chat etc to be used when playing.
- No 3rd-party software may be used during this even to gain advantage in the game other than a VO-IP service used to communicate with your team. This of course includes no hacking / aimbotting / wall hacks / etc etc.
- No glitching to arm mcoms or any other outside of maps / base tactics to gain an advantage over the other team. this includes the known MAV elevator glitch this will not be tolerated.
- Snipers are only allowed to use scopes more then 4x magnefication
- Sitting in one spot for more then 120 seconds (2 mins) is illegal ( this simply means you can not stand in one window or one 3-5 step square area this long we want to keep this fast pace and high action)
- Spawntrapping is illegal you must play the objective by defending etc
- No C4 on mcom stations ( meaning attacking team may not use it to blow up the mcoms) all other play with c4 may be used.
- You must leave your spawn to defend / attack the objective.


Weapon restrictions
- No shotguns
- No Mortars
- No RPG / SMAW
- No M320 or Grenade Launcher attachment / weapon. Aka 'Noob Tube'

All other weapons / attachments may be used. the servers are unranked and feature every unlock possible to use in the game other than DLC and assignments. This will allow everyone to have the same amount of guns and so forth for balance issues!

These general rules will be updated / changes up to 24 hours before the tournament starts on Jan 27th.

Match layout and how you win
Like noted we will use the template match format from TWL league which is the following

Matches will consist of two teams playing 1 map for 2 sets. Each team will play as the attacker and defender in a set (2 rounds). If the teams are tied after both sets (4 rounds), then play will resume in a third (overtime) set (see below).

Matches will be scored based on total points, NOT rounds won.

Scoring will be done as follows:

- Blowing 0 MComm stations = 0 points
- Blowing 1 MComm station = 1 point
- Blowing 2 MComm stations = 2 points

Overtime
Teams will play a two round series until one team is able to blow up more stations than the other. This means if an overtime is needed the two teams will keep playing a full set until one team has blown up more stations than the other.

Examples
Team A Vs. Team B
Set 1
  • Team B blows up 1 station on their attacking side giving them 1 Point
  • Team A blows up 2 stations on their attacking side giving them 2 Points
Set 2
  • Team B blows up 2 stations on their attacking side giving them 2 point and 3 points total
  • Team A blows up 0 stations on their attacking side giving them 0 points and 2 points total

Team B wins the match.

Bracket scheduling

Come at me, do yourself a favor and just hit suicide every time you spawn, if you're on the enemy team that is. The loss will be less painful for you that way.
