Yes, you need to make a registration on our event server till 22th March 2020.
- Register an account on our event server https://www.events.the-west.net/ - Some of you might already have an account there. In this case you do not need to register a second time.
- Find a team.
The tournament starts at 06.04.2020 with the preparation stage. Fore more details of the time table please check the rules post. so what does the 22.3. means ? you have to make an account till 22.3. even though the tournament and server starts at 6.4. ?
Yes, there are 2 quests that give you 3 day character bonus https://tw-calc.net/item/2311000 and maybe one quest in tutorial( I'm not sure, 100% there is automation, better drop and faster regen)Btw, is it possible to get a Character premium for Free there, somehow?
(I will remove this message when/if answered)
I for one would love an event without Union Officer sets.I must say, I am disappointed that Union Officer or even Deputy Chef weapons ain't included.
I mean according to Lead CM (Etriel herself), they are supposed to be countered by Livingston, or even Courtier set anyway.. Not anymore?
And I for one would love a game without P2W madness that provides you about %50 more Damage than +2 Tombola counterparts (i.e Murrieta)I for one would love an event without Union Officer sets.
We will announce prices in the next few days.1)What are the prizes? There aren't any mentioned neither in announcement post nor in rules. Without that I don't think many teams will be likely to register
The small forts we are fighting on are fully built?
Correct. A team can get between 0 and 7 points from one circuit.3)Ad 3)
If I understand correctlythere is only ONE point added per "circuit" of 2 battles and it's requirements are checked from top to bottom right?
As you can read in our rules section it is forbidden to trade with an other team. We will have a good eye on the market and every team. If we see trades between we will punish the trading players with bans and will also disqulify both teams in very bad cases.4)Ad 1.h) and 1.j)
All the items are not upgraded?
- 1x Dead Hawk Dancer's set (clothing, weapon and animal set)
- 1x Joaquin Murrieta's set (clothing, weapon and animal set)
- 1x Livingston's set (clothing and animal set) + Emiliano Zapata's weapon set
- 1x Mountain farmer's set (clothing set)
- 1x Moonshiner's set (clothing set)
How are you gonna prevent situation like on second IFBC where team that lost gave their items to another country team with whom they had a good relationship? Some team could upgrade sets for 10-20 people and change course of whole tournament, how will you punish team if they do something like this? Rematch of the battle?Revert of item upgrades? Disqualification ?
From quests and from the special chest you get character bonuses. Also you get 15 Nuggets every 5 days which can be used for character premium.5)Ad 1.h)
Are 5x 3 days VIP-longtimer we are getting gonna last for every battle?
If not it's gonna be unfair for people that don't want to spend money for nuggets on this world, for me every player should have "Character bonus" premium for every battle (either via some "Character bonus medals" given for every player or pernament bonus for this world.
The maximum selling price will be capped, yes. As long as you transfer money inside a team within our champion ship and game rules, you can do this.6)Ad 1.i) and 1.j)
How are you gonna limit trading between members of one team? Capping max sell price of every item? That can be loopholed via trading hundreds of products for min. buy and sell price.
Will we be able to accumulate money for e.g upgrading PSSR for one full leadership player from ^3 to ^5 (10 milions $ needed) ?
If there will be a lot of teams 3x Booby trap given could not last for whole event and we will have to boost e.g one Master saddler to 600 points will "limited trading" prevent that?
This belongs to the rule break. Rule breaks like heavy communication offences and mentioned trading will be a direct perma ban.7)Ad 1.k)
Is breaking one rule gonna immediately permaban someone? Or there will be warning first?
We are currently thinking about giving the mentioned rifle to every town gunsmith. I will announce it right after we have a decision.I know everyone gets a level 3 PSSR, but if upgrades are going to be in the event, are all town Gunsmiths going to either have them or not have them to avoid teams having to rebuild towns over and over until they get them?
The shop will be the same like on every live world. But we will have no sales and tombolas.It does say you will be able to buy sets, can you please confirm if that means shop sets like the newly updated worker, soldier sets etc, or if it means gambling event sets from either a tombola or the shop or any of the nugget flash sale sets, especially Union Set?
Alright, good to know. But let's say I per accident put stuff on the world market that were intended for someone of my own team and someone of another team then buys ("steals") those items. Will both players then also be punished?As you can read in our rules section it is forbidden to trade with an other team. We will have a good eye on the market and every team. If we see trades between we will punish the trading players with bans and will also disqulify both teams in very bad cases.
Yes! You are responsible for your doings. We are completly strict this time because we want a 100% fair championship, so we will enforce the rules to the letter.Alright, good to know. But let's say I per accident put stuff on the world market that were intended for someone of my own team and someone of another team then buys ("steals") those items.

and every use afteri) The Best-of-three system
The Tournament will take place in a “Best-of-3” model. Each team will be playing 3 Circuits against the same opponent. This will be called a “Match”. The team with 2 out of 3 Circuit-wins will be deemed victorious and will progress to the next Match. The team is considered to have won the Match when it wins at least two out of three Circuits – as the Attacker and as the Defender.
Example: Team Y managed to win the first and the second Circuit as both Attacker and as the Defender but did not win as the Attacker in Circuit three. Because Team Y won 2 out of 3 Rounds, it goes forward.
and second questionOne extra point will be accredited to the overall winner of a Round, the team that:
Is this point necessary? Rest of points are given in situations where it's 2:2 or 3:3 to determine winner of one Circuit a.k.a who won "in a more difficult way " but here obviously winnning by killing all attackers give team Y 3 points and holding fort for 55 rounds gives team Z 2 points.
- Wins one battle of the Round when it plays as the Defender by killing all the Attackers and the opponent team had its victory by holding the fort over time
Yes. I edited the post. Thanks for your report. (just a translation mistake by myself... )Does "Round" mean one Circuit?
and every use after
Yes this point is necessary, because we want to reward the Circuit winners.Is this point necessary? Rest of points are given in situations where it's 2:2 or 3:3 to determine winner of one Circuit a.k.a who won "in a more difficult way " but here obviously winnning by killing all attackers give team Y 3 points and holding fort for 55 rounds gives team Z 2 points.
This situation is not possible.Also there should be points in this section for situation in where team Y wins by killing all defenders and team Z wins by killing all attackers
Yes, basically the same. We used the word "overall winner" in the text, so we wanted to give it a proper definition. Also for the tournament section it is not necessary how many points you would get. It is only important who won 2 of 3 circuits/is the overall winner of 2 of 3 circuits.3rd question:
So is Circuit Winner and Overall Winner(in the DEFINITION) the same?
In rules there are notations like: "wins 2 out of 3 Circuits" or "Because Team Y won 2 out of 3 Rounds, it goes forward. "
If team wins first two circuits there won't be 3rd one? So it's just who gets 2 wins first?
We thought about this but made it a bit different for one reason:Those brackets are kinda bad, in every esport title that I know where losers bracket exists team that lost once can still beat winner in finals. Winner of loser-bracket fights against finalist of winner-bracket for 1st place. And here he plays against top2 team for second place maximum xD the loser-bracket is totally useless then and system isn't called Double knockout/elimination then. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-elimination_tournament
In my(and many more people) opinion team that lost once should be able to play in finals too. But winner of Winner-bracket should start with 1 point advantage (in best-of-3 system)
