I (PSN ID: NovaMage) will be hosting a deathmatch tournament for PS4. The main intent of this tournament is motivate the growth of the PS4 competitive community, and, as a lover of competition myself, I would like to enjoy some good tournament matches. Now, without being too flashy, let's get on with the details:

========================
GENERAL INFO & SCHEDULE
========================

UPDATE: Tournament schedule delayed due to catastrophic technical issues on PSN during March 3. All dates have been moved one week away due to this.

Preliminary Matches - Sunday, March 9 of 2014, 8PM GMT
Finals - Sunday, March 16 of 2014, 8PM GMT

Tournament is expected to consist of 16 players divided in two sides of the bracket. During the first round, each group of 8 players will play 4 matches of deathmatch. At the end of each match, each player earns a number of points according to the following:

1st - 7pts
2nd - 6pts
3rd - 5pts
4th - 4pts
5th - 3pts
6th - 2pts
7th - 1pts
8th - 0pts

After four matches, the bottom 4 players of each lobby are disqualified, and the top 4 proceed to the finals. Scores will be reset for the finals, and essentially the same process will be repeated, with the same score system. After 4 matches in the finals, the top 3 players will be awarded the respective prizes, as shown below in the "PRIZES" section.

In either round, if there's a tie, the tie-breaker will be done by taking the players individual scores in each multiplayer match, and the person whose scores sum is the highest will win the tie.

================
GAMEPLAY RULES
================

As inferred by the tournament name, everything is permitted ;) Just plain deathmatch. No glitching, teaming, lag-switching, or cheating of any form. Anyone discovered and proven to be doing anything of the sort will be disqualified.

If anyone lags out or crashes during a match, the match may be restarted if it happened during the first minute. If it happens after the first minute, the match must continue normally. Depending on how influential the disconnect was, tournament officials may need to step in and take a decision that will vary.


===============
PRIZES
===============

Yes, because that's what you all want to know XD There will be prizes for the top 3 places. These prizes skip me as a participant, meaning, that if I take first place, prizes are awarded for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. If I am second, then prizes go to 1st, 3rd and 4th, and so on.

1st - 60 dollars US PSN code OR 35GBP UK PSN code OR 60 dollars via PayPal
2nd - 30 dollars US PSN codes (20 + 10 USD codes) OR 15GBP UK PSN code OR 30 dollars transferred via PayPal
3rd - 10 dollar US PSN code OR 5GBP UK PSN code OR 10 dollars transferred via PayPal

Essentially, you can redeem your prize via USA PSN codes, via UK PSN codes, or via PayPal (you can only choose one option according to your place). I've done this in order to give more options for participants to redeem their prizes and thus appeal to a wider spectrum of players. In case you don't have paypal, if you are from UK or US you can go for the code rewards instead.

=============================
CONDITIONS FOR PARTICIPATING
=============================

For the first time in gaming history, consoles allow ANYONE to record, not just youtubers with recording devices. In particular, PS4 allows for players to record up to 15 min gameplay, which is more than enough to cover entire Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag multiplayer matches.

So the main condition to participate in the tournament is that YOU AGREE to provide the footage that you record during the tournament to me (NovaMage). That DOES NOT mean you are granting me exclusive use of the footage, you may use the footage for yourself, or give it to anyone else, do whatever you want with it, at any given time, without my consent. The only thing you MUST agree to in order to participate, is that if I ASK you to upload your footage to facebook and give me access to it, you will. Also, you agree to allow me to use the footage for my own channel as well, without any further notice from me to you.

Note that Facebook is the only way to upload PS4's footage. Thus, having a facebook account connected to your PS4 and enabled to upload the recorded videos is necessary.

The primary idea of recording the tournament is the following:

-It is easy to prove anyone's innocence/guiltiness in case someone is accused of cheating in any form. Since every player's point of view is available, this makes the decision far easier for tournament officials.

-The footage may be used for further promo on my channel (especially the finals, and the winner's POV). Although, I will not ensure any footage in particular will make it into my channel.

I have posted on my channel an example of how to record the matches, and how to avoid a recording bug on PS4 that sometimes makes you record your first 15 minutes of play instead of your last 15 minutes (which is how it should work, hope Sony patches that soon). Here is the link of the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eycY5Z3oizQ

As a final note, entry for the tournament is FREE. No fee of any sort required.

Yes, this is fantastic. Awesome format too, I was going to use a similar points system to do a deathmatch seasonal league.

Anyway,

I'm in, doubt I have a chance at wining, but more in it for the fun. I'm CST, so that's 2pm my time right?
This is over a month away so kind of hard to plan that far ahead, but so far I'll be there.
I REALLY like this format, as have played a lot of competitive matches and know that sometimes the flow and contract system seems to be totally against you. This way if you have a mediocore game you still have a chance.
Have uploaded to my facebook page, but haven't done more than that. Will keep an eye on your channel for the tutorial and maybe start a youtube channel.

I friend requested many from here - to try and see what true dm competition can be like. Easily seen that I still need practice/work - but at least I'm not that bad ;) Just as Ysanoire stated, looking forward to watching footage made available. Would have liked to attend, just to say I tried -- but my schedule doesn't allow it. Good luck to all, and if you want some decent fodder while you play - look me up.

Thanks NovaMage for stepping up and creating this.

Anyone in here not get the initiates bundle to work for them? Meaning it didn't give the code on the initiates website (this opens up the Connor outfit for the Huntsman in MP, among other things)? I have a code if anyone wants it.

I agree, ran into NovaMage in a lobby and it was like walking into a slaughterhouse, only I was the cow. Think he got 10k two rounds in a row.

I wanna run into that, best lobby I joined was in the AC3 event night maps, it was all filled with Youtubers and op players like Trickster and Goowarna, and it was extremely hard to score well.

Yes, I wish we had one big platform so I had the chance to run into all those people too. Alas...

Results?

I will post the results through the videos themselves, and after all results are up in videos (both from me and other players), I will post them here. But there's no date for that.

The point is (naturally) to support everyone's channels, and also, as a means to avoid possible spoilers on tournament results without having seen the videos ;)

Sorry about that ;)
