Hymn of Hope September Edition - 2on2 written by sd_andeh, 2012-05-23 15:23 CEST (36 comments)

We know that September is quite far away but we feel like doing a teaser anyway. Since quakeworld players take summerbreaks, so will the Hymn of Hope tournament. We feel that it's smarter to host the biggest tournament thus far in the start of autumn instead of several small tournaments during the summer when nobody plays.

The Hymn of Hope crew are happy to announce the Hymn of Hope September Edition!
This edition will be different from the previous ones in a very obvious way - it will be a 2on2 tournament with more prizemoney than ever before!

QuakeWorld hasn't seen many 2on2 tournaments except for the one hosted at QHLAN. We feel that it would be interesting to see how big the interest is for such an unusual tournament. The prizepool will also be bigger than ever before and we hope to see way more signups than in the dueltournaments! Remember that this tournament is for everyone and every division and skill of players!

Please note that this is just a teaser announcement and a bigger, more complete announcement will follow in the end of the summer.

We have not opened the signups yet, as the date hasn't been set. Stay tuned!

Do you have any thoughts about this? Don't hesitate to head over to the Hymn of Hope feedback thread [quakeworld.nu] and give us your opinion!

We would also like to remind everyone that you can contribute to the prizepool if you want. You can easily donate money at the Hymn of Hope donation page [hymnofhope.tourney.cc] if you want, which will help increasing the prizepool further. Any donation is very appreciated, be it 1 euro or 100 euro! Thank you for yor contribution.

Please give us your feedback in the Hymn of Hope feedback thread [quakeworld.nu] and let us know what you think about the Hymn of Hope September Edition!

More information will come in the end of the summer and we hope that you are just as excited about this 2on2 tournament as we are!

Stay tuned!

So the Hymn of Hope May Edition is over, which once again showed success on the stream with a lot of observers and spectators. We got to hear Carapace, Milton and FU-KIPPO do guestcommentary and of course andeh and QuakePhil, we got to see some great games and a finals including BuLaT.

Final standings:
1. Rikoll -> €200
2. BuLaT -> €100

Once again we congratulate Rikoll who is still playing so well, winning the finals convincingly to maintain the status of being the best dueller of today.

Hymn of Hope May Edition written by sd_andeh, 2012-04-18 01:32 CEST (24 comments)

Fellow quakers,

First off we want to thank every player, spectator and admin for their contribution to making the first edition of Hymn of Hope a wonderful experience for everybody!

Now we are happy to announce the May Edition of the Hymn of Hope duel tournament! It will be held Sunday, the 20th of May. Yes, that's right! It will be a one day tournament instead of a weekend tournament. More info below!

You can easily sign up for the Hymn of Hope May Edition HERE [hymnofhope.tourney.cc]!

We saw the April edition succeed in both bringing top level duelling, loads of spectators, and a hell of a show for every quaker out there.
The tournament went smooth, even though so many games had to be played, and we got to see Rikoll come out the strongest, winning the finals convincingly against bps.

VODs of the tournament can be found here:

Loser's bracket finals - Kingpin vs bps [twitch.tv]
Winner bracket finals - Kingpin vs Rikoll [justin.tv]
The game considered to be the best game of the tournament - LocKtar vs bps [justin.tv]

Hymn of Hope GRAND FINALS - Rikoll vs bps [justin.tv]

and if you would like to watch the entire 48 hour clip, you can do that HERE [twitch.tv]. It does however include other things than just the Hymn of Hope tournament.

We have listened to the feedback from the community, and done some major adjustments in order to provide an even better experience for all involved parties. These changes include;

* 1 day tournament instead of 2 (this is to not take away an entire weekend from players, admins or spectators)

* Bigger prizepool (almost 3 times (!) larger than last edition!)

* Single elimination (we noticed that having a loser's bracket in such a short tournament with such a tight timeschedule was exhausting not only for admins but for players as well)

* Best of 5 from Quarterfinals (to be crowned champion you will have to master all the maps in the mappool)

* More scheduled games (this is to ensure the best possible viewer experience on the stream)

Stay tuned though, as we might have more suprises coming up...
