    What is Contact!
    Contact! was an idea made up after the confirmation that the PRT would no longer host tournaments. The goal of the tournament is to provide a competitive, yet sportsmanlike series of battle where planning, skill, and coordination tops all. We have similar ideals and ethos regarding our play style as the PRT, but allow clans a bit more freedom. This doesn't mean clans will reign supremacy but simply allows them to have a bit more of their members involved within specific squads. While they are not guaranteed a full 8 or 6 man squad, they have the option to get more of their members involved should certain instances occur. For more information on this, please refer to the rules here.

    Signing Up and Getting Accepted to the Team
    Upon filling out an application you will be redirected to the tournament information page. Once accepted by the admins, you will be PM'd by your chain of command with further instructions on what to do. This message will inform you of what you need to do to finish your signup. Once you have done everything in the PM, you should be ready for duty.


    Signing in:

    Every member of the team is required to sign in, this includes Supreme Commanding Officers and Commanders. It is your sole job as a team member, to ensure your chain of command knows whether or not you can attend the event. Only an LOA will exempt you from your activity requirements. However, those who go on an extended LOA may be removed if the leaders of the team feel it is not authentic. You will be messaged by your CoC on how to properly sign in.


    Activity requirement

    Each member of a team (at minimum) is required to do the following:
    - Check the team discord weekly.
    - Attend some form of team event.
    - Be on TeamSpeak while attending said event.
    - Maintain some form of communication with your chain of command.

    More in-depth requirements for specific ranks can be found on our rule page here

    LOA:
    Each team has an LOA channel on their discord, if they are not posted there, they are considered invalid. All LOA's must be accepted by an officer before they are considered valid. A player may post a maximum of 3 LOA's per tournament, with the maximum amount of time being no longer than 30 days per LOA. A request for more than 30 days must be approved by the admins and the commander of that team. People seen using the LOA system to abuse or avoid the activity system will be removed from the team with no chance to reapply.


    Time frame
    The plan is to have multiple two-week cycles to help lessen the burden on commanders as well as to ensure ample time for teams to train and prepare for the battles. The aim is for the tournament to go live on the 4th of January, with the first battle taking place on the 18th of January.

    There will be 2 prep battles and 6 true battles. The prep battles are for teams to get organized, and the true battles are when the tournament officially starts and points are kept track of. Do note, prep battles are meant to be taken seriously and are meant to be played in the same capacity as normal battle would.

    Winning a map
    Just like traditional PR, the winner and loser of the map is determined by the amount of tickets a team has. Once one team reaches 0 tickets they lose. Winning the map should be seen as a short term goal, whereas the long term goal of the tournament is to accumulate enough points to win the whole thing.

    This year, we've made flags influence the actual battle a little bit more. Each time a flag is neutralized, you will deduct 30 tickets from the opposing team, and each time a neutral flag (including neutral flags at the start of a battle) is captured you will be awarded 30 tickets. This will incur a full 60 ticket swing in the ticket difference, compared to the usual 30.

    Campaign System and Victory Conditions:
    Each map has a minimum of 12 points for flags, each flag is worth two points and neutrals award 1 to each team. The winner will receive points for the flags held plus points for the tickets they won with the equation can be found here. The loser will only be awarded for the number of flags they owned.

    Example 1: Saaremaa

    Both teams start with 650 tickets and the US team wins holding 3 of the 6 flags with 80 tickets left. US gets 6 points and Russia gets 6 for flags. The US also receives [25 x (80/650)] = 3 points extra for winning. That totals the US getting 9 and the Russians getting 6.

    Example 2: Wanda
    Both teams start with 700 tickets and the Chinese team wins holding 2 of the 6 flags with 1 neutral with 120 tickets left. China gets 5 points and Germany gets 7 for flags. The US also receives [25 x (120/700)] = 4 points extra for winning. That totals the China getting 9 and the Russians getting 7.


    Once a team gets enough points that it is statistically impossible for the other team to come back, they are crowned the winner.

    Map Choices & Faction Selection
    Maps are by the admins in a random order to prevent tanking for the next battle, and the loser of the previous battle chooses which faction they would like to play for the next battle.

    Fixed a bunch of spelling errors, Did not see Wanda spelling error, did you mean that it was lacking "Shan"? That's just how the author decided to write it.
