Every year, SourceRuns organizes some competition events for the community members to compete in.
The first competition events held by SourceRuns were the “Winter contests”. These are round-based competitions, each round lasting for about a week or so. Each participant has to do the given round task as best as they can, for which they are awarded points based on their performance at the end of the round. The participants who have collected the most points throughout the event, win the contest.
The SourceRuns Half-Life Jump Map Cup is a Single Elimination, Best of 3 tournament, played on a Half-Life 1 multiplayer mod Adrenaline Gamer. Unlike the Winter contests, it’s a live online event that is broadcasted on the SourceRuns Twitch channel.
The players ban two maps and pick a single map from the map pool in ABBA + AB manner, the remaining map being a decider. Then, a race is held on a server on these maps. First player to win two maps advances to the next round.
