Guidelines

These are to be determined. The 4-Team Fortress settings will generally follow popular trends in Fortress, with possible scoring changes related to the additional players and missing teammates. It is not clear if teams should have 4 or 5 players. Five seems to be more fun, but the extra lag nearly unbearable meaning a few people usually die right away. Four players per teams is definitely playable, and given the increased competitiveness of Fortress, this is probably the way to go.

The event will usually have only four teams in a single server with the winner being the first to win two matches (first 4 teams to sign up). If 6-8 teams are interested, two servers can be used, with the top two teams from each match proceeding to a finals server (Only one match will be played and an additional full round of play can break a tie for second place). It is not likely that more than 8 teams will ever attend, so no guidelines currently exist for an event of that size.

History

One of the earliest 4-team maps was created by Durka in August of 2006. A tournament was played, which was successful enough to prompt a second 4-Team Fortress event in October 2006. A wiki page exists with the early workings of 4 Team Fortress Tourney 2, and is now preserved as a historical reference as this page supersedes it.

It is not clear if there were organized 4-Team Fortress tournaments between late 2006 and this successful event in January 2010. No 4TF events were scheduled before the creation of this page in January 2013.
