After a long delay, we’re happy to finally announce the 3rd edition of everyone’s favorite, SourceRuns Half-Life Jump Map Cup!
These events weren’t intended to be held only once a year, but better late than never! Hopefully we can make it more frequent this time round.
The cup will take place on May 26th, starting at 15:00 UTC.
As usual, it will be a live event that we will stream on our Twitch channel at http://twitch.tv/SourceRuns so make sure you’re following it.
This time we’ll be introducing some new maps, though a couple of classic ones have remained as well.
A package with all the map files is available here.
Rules & Format
The rules and the format is exactly the same as our last event, but to reiterate:
- The tournament will have a Best of 3 Single Elimination format, with the grand final being Best of 5. Each participant will be able to pick one and ban two maps out of the pool. During the grand final, each player will only be able to ban one map.
- All runs are done in a Half-Life multiplayer mod Adrenaline Gamer, on a server running HL KreedZ. The mod has uncapped bunnyhopping and a built-in autojump feature that you will be able to use.
- In order to allow fair competition, the fps_max CVAR is capped to 249.5
- Using checkpoints and teleports is not allowed, every run has to be a “Pure” run.
- Abuse of health boosters to gain speed at the start is not allowed.
- Tournament runs will be 1v1 races.
- Any kind of scripted sequences are banned (including agtricks stairs script), except OpenAG autojump, duckroll, doubleduck and usespam.
