Re: The St. Vith Knife Tournament

Simple had a knife tournament way back. It had a page with the rules, match results and a table I think.

Re: The St. Vith Knife Tournament

Hey guys,
have you sharpened your knives already? We shall pull the Knife Tournament off then.
Let's do it next weekend. Saturday and/or Sunday, 17th/18th of February at 21:00 CET.
If anyone feels dissatisfied, tell us.

The first stage shall be an open qualifying.
Arena is the town square of St. Vith.
Axis vs Allied.

You have 20 minutes to amass as many kills as you can.
Watch your stabbing, teamkill means -score.

  • use knife only, wounding with guns or explosives -> disqualified.

  • refresh your HP and catch a breath in the APC's.

  • don't pick medic class, the codex forbids bandaging in the open.

  • don't mess with the trucks, driver's seat only for staff with APC licence.

After 20 minutes of the expected chaos, there is a scoreboard.
The top 4 scorers from each team (or 5, depending on the total number of participants)
qualify for the finals...

The St. Vith Knife Tournament combattants:

Zagros                        Mette.Soldier            hrako   
Serebro                      Karl Dönutz               BabyIsDead           
Jim Lahey                   Graizer                         
Alvarez-Latino           Denny                                                                               
K1ngKunn                   TheVicar                 
Xberg                         AngrySloth                     
Blindschuetz             Maj.MerliN                       
MONTAG                     WILD BILL
Arp273                        MadMax

Re: The St. Vith Knife Tournament

Very interesting idea of having a qualifying stage. If it is doable somehow, it should be everyman for himself, no teams whatsoever and you just try to kill everything that moves.

Maybe as a quick set up, add all participating players to one team and have one player in the opposite team as a spectator, then all kills, which will be teamkills, would give plus 1, instead of minus score.

Not a bad idea.
That would be like uuuz's reg test server, only noone could be in the "other team" there.
The spectator could also just not spawn.

Lurking in the dark and ambush the unaware like a spider?
Yes, that's valid indeed.
In fact, the entire map is usable. Players can go fishing if they like.
Well, of course it's recommended not to stroll too far away from the APC's.

Yeah, a good suggestion, we keep that in mind.
The host server, provided by -=TL=-FearofthedarkHU, has the reg-patch installed, by the way.

A free-for-all mode is available (uuuz has done some nice mods), but -
Battlefield 1942 is a team game, Axis vs Allied, such is it's credo and we want to keep it like that.

No, its more like using the stairs, balconies to fight more spectacle like, the way its shown in Medieval and and mid millennium French fencing examples in film.

Re: The St. Vith Knife Tournament

Are registrations still open? How many players can join the qualifying stage?

Too bad it is not a free-for-all mode, teams can be unbalanced and some players might not qualify if, by chance, they are on the stronger team.

Re: The St. Vith Knife Tournament

Yes, tuia.
Anyone interested can jump on in the last second.
32 player slots are available, 21 participants are listed.
The server is located in Germany and is used as backup for Liga wars.
Also the most popular reg-patch is installed there.

This poster depicts MadMax testing the regs on Xberg.
Xberg-vs-Mad-Max-b.png
Beware of MadMax, he's a beast! Poor Xberg.

Here is the updated player list:

Zagros                        AngrySloth                  hrako
Serebro                      Karl Dönutz                 BabyIsDead
Jim Lahey                   Graizer                         Michaels42
Alvarez-Latino           Denny                          Maj.MerliN
K1ngKunn                   TheVicar                      Cpt.Karwsz
Xberg                          Mette.Soldier              Lecter
Blindschlitz                Møller                          WILD BILL
MONTAG                      MadMax
Arp273

Date:
Saturday, Feb 17, 21:00 CET
Sunday, Feb 18 21:00 CET

Open Qualifying, one round is 20 minutes.
Play as many rounds as you like, your best score will be recorded.
Top players will be promoted and earn access to the Knife Pit.

  • use knife only, wounding with guns or explosives -> disqualified.

  • refresh your HP and catch a breath in the APC's.

  • don't pick medic class, the codex forbids bandaging in the open.

  • don't mess with the trucks, driver's seat is only for staff with APC licence.

Watch your slicing and stabbing! Teamkilling counts -2, suicide -2.
Perishing in the barbwire or being pushed by Maj.MerliN off the belfry has no effect on your score.
Please refrain complaining 'bout hit regs, handling with your kitchen knives is different.
If it turns out to be really unplayable for combatants from West of the Atlantic, we shall look for an alternative server.
But as mentioned before, this one is suitable for clan matches.

Less than 1 hour to start the knife tournament. It is 2 rounds of play, 20 minutes per round. Be there or be square.

Re: The St. Vith Knife Tournament

Ladies & gentlemen,

we finished the first rounds of the qualifying.
The battle was intense. In other words, it was quite a bit of work.

Knife-Tournament-rounds-1-2.png

Fight.jpg

So, where do we go from here?
As you can see on the score board above, the highest score of each player is highlighted.
You may play as many qualifying rounds as you like, your highest score counts.
The 8 players with the highest scores may proceed to the quarterfinals.
It is obvious that it is very difficult to kick BF2024 out of his quarterfinal place.
In contrast, Darwahl has to improve his score in round 3 and/or 4,
else he might lose his quarterfinal place to a new, more successful player.

system2.png

The quarterfinals, semi-finals and the final will be held in the Knife Pit, in classic duel, 1 vs 1.

Rounds 3 and 4 are being played tonight.
Due to a clan war we start 1 hour later, 22:00 CET.

I played against people with a steel body, sparks bounced off them without damage from my knife strikes, I need to smear the knife blade with dart-frog’s poison like old Indians times
