Titles, who has them, and what they do.
« on: August 29, 2013, 08:13:49 pm »
As per the wishes of Squash and the ducks, we're bringing the titles into the full ruleset for competitive, and making a new thread so that all questions about them will go here, and he won't have to deal with them. Down to business!
At this very moment, the titles stand as follows. This is going to be constantly updated to have the most recent in place, so you know exactly who to hunt down an claim a title from. But how, and why, would you claim a title though? To claim another title from a team, simply beat them on a map they hold the title for! Other then proving that you are even better at that map then the team you wrestle it from, it will get you and your team one extra point towards the end of season tournament


Bringers of Dawn: Ducks




Timekeepers of Paritan: Ducks




Lords of the Labyrinth: Merry Men




Masters of Ambush: Merry Men




Sultans of the Dunes: Overwatch




Barons of Fjords: Ducks



But once you have your title, others will come for it, so be prepared to hold it, and even more prepared for an ambush.

Protecting:
The title can be taken from you, and you have to protect it. Any time your team competes in a competitive scrimmage, Cogs, or participating tournaments, on the map you hold your title to, your title is in jeopardy. Should your team lose, the team that beat you will take your title, and you will no longer be the champions of that map, or holders of the territory.

Ambush:
To take a title from another team, you just have to beat them on the map they hold the title to. If you are scheduled to fight them (either by official scrimmage, Cogs, or participating tournament), but the map you are scheduled to fight them on is not the map they hold the title for, you can force them to play on the title map instead. The decision to do this can be done at any point before the match starts, even in the lobby.

Let’s use an example. The Lizard People have claimed the title to Duel at Dawn in The Flotsam Dynasty Tournament. They are now the undisputed champions on that map. You’re in Eagle Squad, and are unhappy with this turn of events. In two weeks, you’re scheduled to fight The Lizard People in Cogs. Unfortunately, you learn the map your teams will fight on is Northern Fjords. You can only steal the Duel at Dawn title by beating The Lizard People on Duel at Dawn. However, you can Ambush The Lizard People, forcing them to defend their title, and changing the map minutes before the Cogs round starts.

While this may seem unfair to the poor Lizard People, having a title makes the clear assertion that they are in fact the best, most fearsome team when fighting on that map, of course they have to always be ready to defend themselves on that map! It also means that the more titles a team collects, the harder it will be to defend each of them, as the number of maps they could potentially play on in every competitive event grows!

It does indeed. It is though apparently going through a few minor changes. It may take a bit of time for it to recover to full strength but it's in no way gone.

A small inaccuracy, we were able to barely pry the title from OVW tightly clasped fingers.

Holy crap, they were great games.

It seems like a chore more then a reward to keep these titles honestly.

Exactly! We're not taking titles, we're shifting the burden ;)
