16Bit TF “Frags & Affection” Ultiduo

In the spirit of Valentines Day and kicking off 2012 with a whole lot of fun, 16Bit TF will be hosting the 16Bit TF “Frags & Affection” Ultiduo on Sunday the 12th of February. This will be S.A’s very first Ultiduo and every one and any one is welcome to enter.

So what is Ultiduo?

The combo from 6v6 (medic and soldier) work together to kill the opponent combo. It is King of the Hill (KOTH); the objective is to capture the point and hold it for 3 minutes. It’s basically a death match style competition, very simple and easy to play.

The original Ultiduo concept was developed by Ozfortress. It is meant to celebrate a very integral aspect of team fortress which is the medic and soldier; this is the core of the competitive scene and also is a staple combination in pub play.

With its fast-paced action an Ultiduo competition promises to deliver excitement, upsets and “midairs”. We looking forward to seeing new faces show their skills and expertise with the medic and soldier classes. Simply create a 2v2 team and you’ll be able to sign up.

Tournament Format

KOTH 2v2 format with the soldier and medic combo. The tournament will be a single elimination system, consisting of 3 rounds: preliminary, semi-finals and a final. Each round has a 30 minute time limit. To win a point a team must capture middle and hold it for three minutes (the clock starts running down once a team caps mid and stops when the other team starts capping it). The team who reaches 3 points first, wins the map.

Allowed Weapon Unlocks- Soldier:

Rocket Launcher
Shovel
Shotgun

Allowed Weapon Unlocks- Medic:

Syringe gun & Blütsauger

Bonesaw & Ubersaw

Medigun (Kritzkrieg is NOT allowed)

General Rules

1) No class switching is allowed during a round, as it may give a slight advantage. Players are allowed to swap at the end of the round.

2) One Sub per duo will be allowed during the elimination rounds. Please note that semi finals and finals must be played by the exact line up that qualified for them. No subs will be allowed in the semi finals or finals as it makes to drastic a change to the game because a team exists only of two players. (Read this, don’t ask about it later :P)

3) Seedings will be done in a random pick format; a system will be implemented where essentially the participants will be the deciders.

4) Players must play with the same nick they registered with.

5) Each team is allowed only one tactical timeout (pause) per map. Tactical timeouts may not be longer than 10 minutes.

6) If a team is not on the server ready to play within 15 minutes of the scheduled time, that team will forfeit the map. After the first map, teams are allowed a 10 minute break before the start of the second map. This is under the players’ discretion, and if they wish to carry on straight away they may do so. (10 minute break only applicable to semi finals and finals)

  11. So a lot of research was done on this cup?
    Honestly those maps are a waste, it takes 4-7 seconds just to get to mid and gameplay will be ratardedly slow.

    Get koth_ultiduo_r_b7, since this map was actually designed for this gameplay.
    BONUS the games will be way closer and more enjoyable.

    1. YES!
      furthermore, why do we NEVER play custom maps in mixes?
      wtf is wrong with all of you?
      get the goddamn maps.

    2. Im sure we can put the custom map in. Everyone pls make sure you have the map and actually test it pls. Thank you for suggestion

  15. The reason we haven’t put in any custom maps is because we’re expecting a lot of people who, as usual, won’t download the map or will not know how to. This happens every competition and it won’t be any different this time. This competition is just a forerunner, we’re testing the waters and the communities response to it. Maybe in the future we will run a custom map Ulti Duo. But for now let’s just KIS (Keep it simple) and get on with it 🙂

  16. This sounds like some fun.
    Unfortunately Sunday nights are not an option for me.
