Hi all, most of you have probably already heard the sad news.
But from now on there won’t be any official tournaments anymore.
Unfortunately someone is attacking the servers to sabotage the tournaments.
This has been happening for months now, I’ve tried to patch some things like adding captcha, rate limiting and more but if someone really wants to break stuff they will almost always find a way.
Because of my limited time and because we don’t know the reasoning behind these attacks I won’t be able to keep on trying to stop the attacks.
Unfortunately this also means that Zuzi steps down as tournament moderator because there are no tournaments anymore. Here you can read the message.
OK guys, since this tour has been attacked by the hacker again, as well as every official tour in the last 4 months, its just not worth the time for me to keep putting hours of work into events, that will be messed up within a blink of an eye. Therefor i am stepping down as the lead tournament-moderator. This results in the end of official CFPro tournaments permanently. I hope you had fun with my events that managed to be finished and a am gutted to not being able to actualise the projects i had in mind. Wish you all the best in your lives. See you!:rasta:
I still hope the one behind the attacks will contact me some day and that we can get to know his motivation. I doubt that his goal was to make an end to tournaments so maybe we can chat about it.
Unofficial tournaments organized by players have never been targeted.
So, we will support those by providing rewards.
We can not guarantee the person behind the attacks won’t target the unofficial tournaments but it’s something we can try at least.
For every 5 participants (rounded down) that PLAY in the tournament you can add 100 gems to the prize pool.
The minimum amount of playing participants to get rewards is 10.
If there are 23 participants the prize pool will be 400 gems and if there are 25 it will be 500 gems.
It’s up to the tournament organizer how to divide the gems.
If there are more than 20 participants we will also give a champ crown to the winner. (for teams all team members can get the crown)
Please note that we may change this rewards in the future but this is a good start.
Submission and approval
Unofficial tournaments have to be submitted to the moderators.
You can make the forum post and send the link to moderators.
They will review it and let you know if it’s eligible for rewards.
Make sure to include clear rules in your tournament.
After getting approval you will also be given access to write in the tournament announcements channel on Discord.
