I'm the lead designer of Cosmonarchy Brood War, and I wanted to post about our Ascension-style tournaments! We've been running these for a hot minute now.
Our current tourney is the 5th, with 12 players across 4 groups! We're also planning double elimination for playoffs this time around.
Time slots are 16:00 GMT (+00:00), 19:00 GMT (+00:00), 22:00 GMT (+00:00), and 01:00 GMT (+00:00), on Saturday, the 30th of September!
The project plays very differently to Brood War, but there are lots of translatable skills between the two games, and the current crop of players isn't supremely out-of-reach in terms of raw skill - ergo, once you learn a bit about the project, you can probably start to take games off of people!
CMBW allows you to achieve much higher scale than you would conventionally see within Brood War, thanks to having a massively-expanded selection limit, the removal of supply and upgrades from the game, and entity limits like units and bullets being significantly increased. One of the things the game is about is controlling vast armies, so you can expect to see lots of those in the tournament matches!
Feel free to read up about the event format, and ask any questions you have!
We also play on completely bespoke maps. You can check out a fancy image here, or just click the event format link above and scroll on down. Cheers!
