ONSLAUGHT TOURNAMENT SERIES YEAR 2, SEASON 2: Registration Open Until September 10!

Welcome to Year 2, Season 2 of the community-run Onslaught Tournament Series!

Rules and format walkthrough: 9th of September, 4-7pm UTC, 12-3pm ET, 6-9 CEST, 5-8pm BST (streamed on Twitch)

The tournament format tests consistency and skill, giving teams of four players three hours to complete four maps in a specific order with three attempts each map. Each failed attempt deducts points from a team’s overall score, with forfeited maps deducting the full amount of points for that map.

There is a comprehensive set of rules, but three notable rules worth mentioning here are as follows:

  • All teams MUST be able to produce a recording on the same day as the tournament, or stream it and have an accessible vod to review, or risk disqualification.

  • In order to give players more team and career variety while creating a more-balanced competitive environment, teams MUST use the Tourney Balance Mod (patch notes document can be found here).

  • Iceolator is currently in the process of overhauling Onslaught+. Please ensure teams download and utilize the archived version of the mod found here.

On top of this, as normal there will be a shoutcast on second and third days of the event streamed at Twitch, with shoutcasters Ishka, and the original creator of Onslaught, Grimalackt. Portions of the proceeds from the channel subscriptions/bits/etc this season will go towards supporting those affected by the floods in Germany and supporting Moopshark during his family’s crisis.

The signups are now open! In the appropriate channel in the discord, please state your team name, the names of each of your players and which tier you’d like to compete in.

Hope to see you all there!
