The FFA 3 will be played on Sunday, August 31st, 2014!


What the FFA is

The Fortress-for-All tournament is a Fortress competition inspired by the Fortress Brawl, Ladle, Spoon, and "pickup" games. The idea is to get players who don't always have the opportunity or the will to play in the Ladle to experience the intensity and excitement that comes along with it. Frequently, in the Ladle, a team will sign up with well over 6 players (the minimum required to have a team) and only 6-7 of those players actually get to play. The others are forced to spectate with stars in their eyes wondering when they'll be able to play on the big stage. Well, that's what the point of this tournament is. Anyone, whether you have a clan/Ladle team or not, is encouraged to participate in this tournament. There are *NO* previous requirements to sign up.

How it works - Signups

Anyone who wants to play is more than welcome to sign up. There are going to be 72 initial spots to sign up. This will equate to 12 teams of 6 players each. Once the allotted 72 spots are filled up, there will be no more spaces. In addition to signing up as a Player, 12 people need to sign up as a Captain. Anyone who wishes to be a captain may nominate themselves, but please - be very knowledgeable about fort and willing to put in the effort of organizing your team to it's highest capabilities.

Regarding Substitutions

Any players who remain after the rest have been distributed to teams will be regarded as available substitutes, unless they notify otherwise. All substitutions must first be picked from this list, until such time as none remain. Otherwise, captains are responsible for finding their own substitutions. The practice of "firing" a team member and artificially substituting them is strictly forbidden, and the consequences will be forfeiture, regardless of progress.

How it works - Teams

Team members for the captains will be picked at random, either by an independent third party or by a bot designed for this process. Each player who signs up will be given a random number between 1 and 72, and these numbers will then be distributed at random to captains. Once the teams are full, the corresponding list of players will be released. This eliminates the possibility of favouritism by captains. All assignments are final, and swaps are disallowed. The distribution will take place the week preceding the tournament, to allow for unexpected obligations. Captains will meet in the IRC server #ffadistro at 6PM GMT.
