The OGAT Hunger Games Tournament - 1st Edition


Subscription end on 6 February 2016 !
Read the article to discover how to join the tournament.

Hello guys, and welcome to the first edition of the OGAT Hunger Games unofficial tournament!

*For more detail and question please check the official thread ->
HERE

General informations
Hunger Games is a mod created by the player Lupo511 based on our official RP-Sandbox gamemode, so keep in mind that the tournament is unofficial but supported by the developers for recreational purposes, there may be bugs and inconvenience that may not reflect the current state of the game.


How does the Hunger Games mode work?

In the Hunger Games mode 24 players (called tributes) are put inside an arena where they have to survive and fight each other to death, until only one remains alive. That last player will be the winner. There is no respawn, when you die you are out of the game. You start with nothing in your inventory and you have to gather resources exploring the map, because the better your equipment is the more your chances to survive are. Steal your victims's inventory, use the environment to your advantage and study a good plan. Be smart, be quick, be brave, and you will manage to be the winner!

Hunger Games will take place in the River City map,
FULL RESOLUTION IMAGE HERE


Tournament Rules and organization

Every match will have no more than 24 players. In case there are more than 24 participants in the tournament there will be qualification matches. The winners of the qualifications will go ahead and play in the great final match. There will be a draw to randomly choose the players of every qualification match (if there are enough players from nearby countries there is a possibility of country specific qualifications in order to reduce lag advantage).

Tournament rules:
!!Infringement of the following rules can be punished at the organizer's discretion!!

1) Only one player can win the OGAT Hunger Games.
2) Every match consists of no more than 24 players.
3) We require extreme precision with match times. The server will be locked 10 minutes before the event starting time and whoever is not in the server by that time will be left out, so be sure to be there earlier. The match will start exactly at the declared time. We will be 100% precise with timing and we will not wait for any late player.
4) Any type of hack or cheat is strictly forbidden. Any player caught using hacks or cheats will be instantly disqualified with no option to get back in the tournament, and in some cases banned from the game.
5) Players are expected to mantain a friendly and fair behaviour. Any type of misbehaviour against other players (including but not limited to racism or insults) is not tolerated.
6) We don't accept any complain about lag. However, we will do our best to remove lag problems in the games.

Early Access Review
The game has some issues, but a developer was kind enough to address each of them in my formerly negative review that I'm changing it to positive.

1. Buying the full game gets you access to a lot of stuff, but you should definitely play the demo for a while to get a feel for the game.
2. I said before it didn't go on sale, but checking online confirmed that it has actually gone on sale quite frequently.
3. I used steamcharts as my source in saying the game is dead, but that didn't factor in players from other clients, which I now know there are.
4. The "Hackers" I encountered so often are just players glitching, the devs are fixing it soon.

There are issues present, there are also bright points. For example, the devs listen to the community and care about their opinion. The fact a developer took my negative review apart and pointed out what was incorrect about it shows how much they care about the game. Another point I have is that it's still in Early Access. All things considered, this game is way better than 90% of the Early Access garbage that people get conned into buying. This also means that eventually the game will get released as a full version, which should boost the playerbase significantly. There are regular patches, and the gameplay itself is fun and addicting, inducing a "one more round" type feeling. I think I've actually convinced myself about this game, now excuse me while I go reinstall it.

Early Access Review
sThis game is fun fun fun ...
you play a game where light is very important; robbers are invisible if thy're not in direct Light. So the guards (cops) can't see their nemesis in the dark, but they can switch on the lights in any room to make them instantly visible again.

To balance a little more the cops have stronger weapons than the robbers; so they kill easier than being killed.

The game on itself is great fun, really (look at how positive it is reviewed by so many people); but i'm missing an important item in the game; I can't sit back and relax with this game. It's obligated to be sitting bent over your keyboard and mouse.
To sit back and relax while playing this game one thing is missing; support for controllers/gamepads (not joysticks). If the game would finally support game controllers (x360). With a controller i could sit relaxed in my computer-chair, or i could set the pc to output to my TV (over hdmi) and lay myself down on the sofa whilst playing this game. That would be so much better than getting than getting RSI-pains because of the constant mouse+keyb usage.

Conclusion; it's a very good game BUT it 100% misses controller support. So Devs, please add those lines from the Xinput API so we can finally use our controllers with this game. That is really my one and only remark about this game. When controllersupport is added; this game would receive 95% from me (sorry, but perfect games don't exist in my world)
