You have asked for it, you have waited, and it’s finally here, A weekend FFA tournament!
Cheesy intro aside, not only will this tournament please the US players that have been requesting a tournament in the afternoon, but also the EU players that have been wanting tournaments at EU-friendly times. This means that both EU and US players are allowed to participate.
The tournament will be hosted at 9:00 PM GMT, AKA 21:00 UK time.
In US time, that’s 4:00 PM EST and 3:00 PM CST.
That means that you will be able to register starting at 8:30 PM GMT, half an hour before the tournament begins.
We will be hosting our 20th straight FWF Free For All (FFA) tournament tonight. Be sure to check out the rules tab above if you are new to the group. Participation is welcome for all. In fact, if you have any questions, feel free to join our FWF chat. We have been there frequently to answer questions, arrange for games, and generally be a part of a great community.
In an effort to simplify communication, I have had a couple requests to have the FWF chat open when steam is launched. As an added benefit, the “Steam News” advertisement is not displayed with this method. There is a simple way to do this.
Right click your Steam shortcut, click properties, and change your target to:
As many know, we started FWF with the humble goal of having skilled matchups on a regular basis. I am pleased to say that we have now have had flawless execution with 17 consecutive weeks of tournaments,
as well as a 2v2 that generated the largest turnout of any tournament yet. We have made new friends. We have had some great games. Last but not least, we have built a community of Duck Game enthusiasts.
FWF began as a league for weekly tournaments. We are going to continue to have these tournaments. However, I am working on expanding FWF to be not just for tournaments, but a community group for anyone who loves the game.
I have had several requests for 2v2 tournaments, 1v1 tournaments, different days, different times, and just a great place to hang out and meet new players. I aim to achieve this goal, with the help of our dedicated community. It starts with our FWF steam chat. Whenever you are looking to get into a game, or just talk Duck Game in general, I encourage you to hop in the FWF group chat. You can easily run it in the background, play some games, and see any communication our community has, whether it is looking for a certain type of game, 2v2, customs … like I said, anything Duck Game.
We will continue to be consistent with our Thursday tournaments.
Additionally, I will start streaming as much as possible. I primarily started the stream in an effort to teach people how to run the tournaments, but after seeing how well it works and the overall quality, I am very impressed with how smooth and crisp it is. I also managed to find a microphone that works. Woo!
Due to the number of last-minute registrations and higher than expected turnout, I have relaxed requirements for registration. You can now just type your name next to the hat you want. If you have played before, your name will be in a drop-down box. If you are new, there will be a little red triangle in the corner letting me know I have to add you to the database. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Sign up using the 2v2 button above and pick your name, or “Teammate Requested” if you are looking to form a team. I am asking for each player and their team partner to post in the Steam Community Duck Game Forum thread and choose an available hat. Each hat will be available on a first-come, first serve basis.
Team hats must be unique for the tournament structure to work. If we choose to continue hosting 2v2’s, teams will wear the same hat from one tourney to the next. I expect we will not run out of hats any time soon.
I am asking for each participant (both team members) to post their partner and hat in the thread listed above as a commitment to be there for the tourney. Once I validate this has happened, I will lock in validation and your name will turn white.
Example: Player 1 posts Player 2 Eyebob
Player 2 posts Player 1 Eyebob
This will help to prevent no-shows at game time. If your partner does not show up, you will be flying solo vs. two other players, so choose wisely.
I understand this is a pretty late start (or early for you EU’ers) but it’s the earliest I can be available for it.
Congrats to This Guy, winner of the Duck Call tournament last Thursday!
In one week, on Saturday, November 12th, we will have our very first 2v2 tournament at 10:30pm EST. I have had many requests for a Saturday game, as well as ample interest in a 2v2 match. We will need to pick partners and hats in advance for this game. If anyone has a great idea for how to arrange this, please let me know.
