Hey Everyone,





I'm happy to announce our first DTO weekly cup! Down To One has partnered up with Mwave.com.au to bring you some sweet prizes with one weekly competition each week, over the next 4 weeks.
For those that don't know, Mwave is Australia's largest online tech retailer, and our first choice as a partner of competitive Down To One (I buy all my own gaming hardware from Mwave, and have always had a positive experience!).

The tournament has finished! Congratulations to Abyxx for earning 1st place, Ancient who placed second, and Jksthegate who placed third!


Prizes (over $250 worth of prizes!):
1st place:
1x Sennheiser PC 163D Gaming Headset http://www.mwave.com.au/product/sennheiser-pc-163d-gaming-headset-504128-ab52753 (valued at $90)
OR
1x $75 Mwave store credit

+5x DTO Steam keys (valued at $75)
2nd place:
5x DTO Steam keys (valued at $75)
3rd place:
1x DTO Steam key (valued at $15)

When is the tournament?
This tournament will be held at 9am Perth time (or 12pm AEDT/Sydney time) this Saturday, the 7th of March, players should be ready 15 minutes before the allocated start time. Check here for a countdown clock.

How Do I Sign Up?
Anyone can sign up, simply head over to http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/78NiIM8YtZ & sign up! NOTE: Only Oceanic & North American residents may participate in this tournament - sorry about that!

What format will this tournament be played in?
-All DTO weekly tournaments will be played in a double elimination bracket (so, you can 'lose' one game, but won't be immediately knocked out of the tournament).

-Any solo player can sign up & play in this tournament - no teams are allowed.

-The amount of players signed up will determine the amount of players in each round.

-Each round will have a minimum of 5 players in it, and a maximum of 10.

-The top X players (usually 2, but dependant on round size & upper or lower bracket match) in a round will proceed in their bracket, with the rest of the players in that round being awarded a loss, and either moving to the losers bracket, or, if they're already in the losers bracket, being knocked out of the tournament.

What are the rules for this tournament?
Our full competitive ruleset can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1h1i_JYd2_HBMj3KPeBlH14r5qVQLWnNFeO3EocswpVo/edit?usp=sharing - the main things to remember are: no teams, no intentional exploitation of known bugs, and of course, no cheating. As we are still experimenting with various rules whilst in an early stage of development, some changes will probably be made to these rules throughout development.

I don't own Down To One yet - can I still play?
Whilst we're still in Early Access, we are looking for experienced competitive FPS players to provide us with feedback on the competitive format, in-game improvements, and more. If you are an experienced competitive player with recent CG game activity, and are willing to compete in this tournament & provide detailed feedback, send me a CG PM.

Will this tournament be streamed?
Yes! Matches will be streamed on the official Down To One Twitch channel.

Yep. Will be streaming it over on the DTO Twitch channel, Twitch finally added DTO into their games list this week, so it's good timing!

Alrighty guys, brackets are up! As it turns out, Challonge cannot actually generate the brackets we need, since no other eSport that it supports has our unique FFA format! So, for now, our brackets will be done via google sheets:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LpRW87GmP2HnodTCoKwXoNj6rkl2OA-KYLKMubOaAyE/edit?usp=sharing

Also, for a visual representation of the brackets:

Now, the way that tomorrow will work is: 15 minutes prior to the start time, each match will be allocated a server, and a link will be given in the google sheet, which you simply need to click on in your browser to start Down To One and automatically join the server.

Also, remember that you must be using your names which you signed up under.
