Every human being is has the need to be around other human beings, be it friends, family. Urbanization has occurred over the years due to man realizing that he will not survive without the help of others. As crime goes, the fear of being pinched or killed has led to the creation of gangs, who rely on each other to survive.
GTAForums has seen its fair share of gang activity over the years. Clans, teams, crews, battle it out to gain respect for their skills. Players have enjoyed the benefit of always having someone to cover them, but the real question is...
How far can you go when your buddies ain't there?
The 2012 GTAForums 1v1 Cup unites those who think they can reach the top without the help of others, in a quest to find GTAForums' best single shooter. As the name states, games will be one versus one, so that each player can push himself to the limit without the need of external assistance, only their own two hands and their weapon of choice.
16 players (if possible, 32) will be randomly split into four groups of four players which will start the round-robin stage of the cup. These players will have three months to face the other three players of their group to gain points and advance into the knockout stage.
In a match, 2 games will be held, one game for each player's settings. (Read "Settings"). If a player wins both matches, he will get three points, the loser will not gain any points. If there is a 1-1 draw, both players receive one points. At the end of the match, a screenshot of the score MUST be posted in this thread.
The winner of each group is the one who finishes the round-robin with the most points. If there is a tie between two players in the number of points, point differential will decide who goes on, that's why landslide victories are important in the group stage.
The winner and runner-up of each group will advance into the quarter-finals. The winner of a group will face the runner-up of the next group (e.g. Winner Group A vs Runner-Up Group B, Runner-Up A vs Winner B and so on...)
These games will be composed of two matches, once again, one match with each player's setting. If there is a 1-1 draw, both competitors will compete in a third and final match with the following settings:
Location: Colony Island
All other settings may be manipulated as long as both parties agree on it. If the match does not take place in these settings, both parties will be removed from the tournament.
So that the cup is not delayed, deadlines are created for each stage of the tournament.
