Hey everyone! Happy new year!
After a pretty successful first edition of SourceRuns Half-Life Jump map cup™ we’ve been trying to organize a second one this past year, however due to lack of good organization it never really happened. Until now, that is!
The SourceRuns Half-Life Jump map cup is coming back for a 2nd edition in 2018! The exact date is February 3rd, so make sure to mark your calendars. The starting time will be announced closer to the event date.
Same as last year, it will be a live event that we will stream on our Twitch channel at http://twitch.tv/SourceRuns so make sure to follow that.
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.
The rules are pretty much the same as last year, with the map picking part being slightly different.
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 and ban one map 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 “Pro” 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, except OpenAG autojump, duckroll, doubleduck and usespam.
- agtricks stair climb script is also banned.
You are required to record demos during your runs and be able to provide them if requested.
