Trials Records: Hot and Frosty Speedrun Sessions Tournament October / November 2019

Introduction

Following the success of the first Trials Records: Trials Rising Speedrun Session Tournament, we return to showcase the new Trials Rising DLC, Crash and Sunburn, with the “Hot and Frosty Speedrun Sessions Tourney”. This tournament aims to deliver more top level speedrunning action using our tried and tested “session based” format allowing for cross platform competition! The tournament will be held over 2 weekends pitching 32 of the world’s best riders against each other.

Instead of using the glitchy in-built Private Multi-Player system and limiting the entrants to one platform, this tournament will be using a new format, the “Sessions Format”. Each race will consist of a timed session where each rider gets the same amount of time to set their best run with the winner being the rider with the best time. We stream these matches showing each rider, side by side for their allotted time. For this to work we will require each participant to be able to stream in a quality that is good enough that we can verify their times.

If you would like to know more please do get in touch via the social links at the top of the page, Discord will always be the easiest way to get in touch 🙂

RULES

  • Due to stream delay there will be a short grace period where your score will count if you finish an improved run within a few seconds of the session ending. This decision will be made by the hosting tournament mod and all decisions are final
  • Times set during the session will be recorded by the tournament mod with help from their respective Twitch chat mods and others. VOD can and will be consulted should any issues arise

  • If you are unable to stream or stream is of insufficient quality to verify you will be disqualified
  • If you make any attempt to cheat or disrupt the tournament you will be disqualified

First round placement will use a typical sport seed system, see the example bracket below for further details. This is to ensure top players do not meet in the very early rounds. The defending Trials Records Champion, Novastxr, will take seed #1 regardless of score.


The rules mostly relate to fair play, any cheating will result in a permanent ban from Trials Records tournaments. Trials Records and its moderators can and will act using discretion and any behavior deemed to be foul or disruptive will result in a permanent ban from Trials Records tournaments
