Random Restrictions Fun Event

This event will be about random restrictions. Each match will have 4 random restrictions, 1 fixed (no more than 2 mercs& Lumberjacks total per team) and 3randomly generated with help of www.random.org/lists/ from the list below:

  • No Mercury Field Guns
  • No Mortars
  • No Light Mortars
  • No Lumberjacks
  • No Typhon Heavy Flak
  • No Echidna Light Flak
  • No Hawacha
  • No Carrorades
  • No Light Carrorades
  • No Heavy Carrorades
  • No Flamers
  • No Banshee Rocket Carosel
  • No Artemis
  • No Very Long Range (merc)
  • No Long Range (LJ, Hawacha, Typhon, Artemis, Banshee)
  • No Medium Range
  • No Short Range (Flamer, both Carrorades)
  • No AoE
  • All Aoe
  • At least 2 Mine Launchers
  • No Mine Launchers
  • At least 2 Light Mortars
  • At least 2 Light Carrorades
  • At least 2 Typhon Heavy Flak
  • At least 2 Banshee Rocket Carosel
  • At least 2 Artemis
  • At least 2 Flamers
  • At least 1 Squid
  • At least 1 Spire
  • At least 1 Mobula
  • All Goldfishes
  • All Spires
  • All Squids
  • All Mobulas
  • No Pyramidions
  • No Junkers
  • No Galleons
  • At least 2 gunners
  • No Shatter
  • All Shatter
  • All Explosive
  • No Explosive
  • No Piercing
  • No Flachette
  • All Flachette
  • All Fire
  • No Fire
  • All Piercing

Match restrictions will be same for both teams in the same match (but not across all the matches). The idea behind the event is to hopefully find new effective tricks and have fun.

It's will be a 2v2 tournament on all 2v2 maps (including labyrinth).

Captains can ready in the lobby only after ref gives green light to ready. This is so referee can check ship loadouts. Referee MUST check ships to make sure they adhere to restrictions.


Restarts can be initiated only before first kill or before 10 minutes mark.
Restarts should be initiated because of loadout error and one team brings restricted items to match. Ref must either initiate restart of consult with both of the teams. Second consecutive loadout error in the same match will be penalised with a loss. 
Restarts can be initiated because Captain DC (ref judgement).
Restarts can be initiated because extended team member DC.

Format will be either tournamnt with qualifying groups of double ellimintaion depending on the number of sign ups.
Time: 17th August 8PM UTC (4pm EST/ 10pm CEST) or  24th August 8PM UTC - either could extent to next Saturday, or both weekends if there is extraordionary lot of sign-ups (determined by popular vote).
Signups deadline: 11th august or 18th August - the later date, that is still before the tournament.

Despite this not being a full competitive tournament event there are going to be prizes in the form of costumes (+bragging rights).
Disclaimer: MUSE whale of approval has not been officialy given yet, meaning in worst case scenario, winners will be picking from my KS costume surplus (eric messed up orders, meaning I have my set + a bunch of random costumes --- latter being very appropriate to the tournament theme XD). I'll try my damnest to make sure the winners get their choice of costumes.

I'm still recruiting possible streamers -  first one to be recruited was Fade.

NOTE: I've been writing this post for so long, that I've lost track of what I've written and what I haven't written. If there is going to be something missing, I'll be adding it shortly.

Sounds challenging, aka, fun!

I can imagine a match with the
-no explosives
-no short range
-all squid
Restrictions to be..... Entertaining.

What about if two conflicting restrictions are randomly chosen? Ex.
-All fire
-no fire

If conflicting restristions are randomly selected, the first restriction is kept and all other conflicting with the first one are eliminated and new one(s) is picked.

Also won't most competitive teams be playing on those dates and times already in the Cogs?

Well to be honest I've lost track of COGs, I thought season 2 just ended and if you aren't following them regularly it's easy to lost track of things. I was asking aroung on the state of cogs, but the people I was asking had no idea, and I had apperently had things wrong.
This event is being moved to the first unoccupied weekend between season 2 and 3.

While we are at it: when Is the season 2 projected to stop?

PS: as for AoE thing: apparently we have enough time to think it over if it's going to be inbetween seasons (and it is) - by default AoE is anything with splash damage or a cone spread, but this definition would forbid everything but gatling, merc, javelin and flare. If I cand get a reasonable definition I'll replace no aoe with a diffirent restriction, and I might have an Idea witch one.

The merc has an AoE of 1... But I think the flamethrower has 0. You might need to ask awkm about that.

For reference, we just had week 3, and I believe there's a gap in the cogs this week for the spire tournament. So week 4 will be next week.

The cogs have only really just started.

Cullen organises it now, if you ever need to find out the cogs schedule so you can organise stuff you should reach out to him.

Cullen is out of commission for a while, so I will be organizing Cogs in the interim.
