In partnership with Critical Force, we are excited to announce Season 2 of the Critical Ops: Golden Ox Tournament. Like before, it will be a leaderboard tournament for beginner & intermediate teams. However, this time it will be divided into two parts, each part is a standalone event with its own winners. Part 2 of the Golden Ox Tournament begins September 19th and registration will remain open until September 26th unless mentioned otherwise.
- Starting September 19th, 2022
- Ending October 19th, 2022
- Format: 3vs3, 4vs4, 5vs5
- Participants: 100 Teams Max
- Regions: All Regions Allowed
- Maps: Any Map Allowed
- Mode: Defuse The Bomb
- Leaderboard: Points System
- Prizes: $500 Cash Prize, Golden Ox Emblem, & In-Game Credits.
- Discord: https://discord.gg/5wsYTsF
The teams can challenge one another once they are matched in the queue. The winning team will gain Points while the team that lost will lose Points. The interesting feature about this tournament is if you lose you are not disqualified but lose points and still have many chances to gain points and rise on the Leaderboards. The amount of Points the teams win or lose are calculated through a formula that contains several factors. Some examples that affect the amount of points gained or lost are differences in a match score, differences in the team’s rank, and number of participants that played. Matches are going to be 3vs3, 4vs4 or 5vs5, depending on the agreement of both teams. The more participants means that more Points can be gained following a victory. If you were already signed up for Part 1, then you will be automatically signed up for Part 2. But you may change your roster by using the command /apply.
Team captains must be aware of our Rules & Regulations. Any form of cheating or rule breaking will be penalized & we highly advise that team captains read all of our rules and explain the rules to their team members because this is the responsibility of the team leaders or captains.
Golden Ox Emblem
This unique emblem is only acquired by playing at least 10 matches in the Golden Ox Tournament. At the end of the tournament, we will contact all teams regardless of their position on the leaderboard that meet this requirement and award 5 players on each of the selected teams. This is only for players that don’t have it yet.
Special Rules for Golden Ox
- Teams must play at least 1 match per week or they risk being disqualified.
- Only team captains may set up matches with each other.
- Once a match has been set up, it cannot be cancelled anymore and not playing will be counted as a forfeit. Exceptions can be made after consulting with the MOBILE E-SPORTS Moderators.
- In order for a match to be considered “set up”, both captains must conclude match details based on bot suggestions, which must include the following:
- The Map
- The Server
- The Sides
- A BO3 or BO5 match cannot be set up, however multiple individual matches can be set up instead.
- When a team is available to play, they must use the MOBILE E-SPORTS Bot to enter the queue. If another team joins the queue, then a match must be played immediately.
- Teams join the queue with a specified duration, for example 1 hour. If after the specified time no opponent has been found, they automatically leave the queue.
- Other team captains cannot see which teams are in the queue.
- By default, no player has to record and matches can be hosted by one of the team captains, without a moderator spectating. However, matches of suspicious teams must be spectated by a moderator. The moderator may also request suspicious players to record the first 6 rounds of the match, or the full match.
- A player or team is considered suspicious at the sole discretion of the MOBILE E-SPORTS Team.
- In order to claim points for a match, the winner must enter the match into our Bot System and the loser needs to confirm the match.
- The loser must confirm the match within 2 hours, or open a support case for it if the winner broke any rules during the match. And if they fail to do so, they get -25 points.
