With the official trailer to Assassin’s Creed 3 sitting just one day away from release or maybe even less from when this goes to publication, what better time is there to make that AC:R PC Tournament that so many have requested? The correct answer is no better time at all because I’m sure none of you will be rushing to learn more about a game that’s expensive, riddled with bugs and lacklustre at single player, if AC:R is anything to go on.Not that I’m bitter about rushing to buy ACR as soon it was available or anything.
Sorry, seem to have lost my train of thought for a second there.
Ah yes, the PC tournament for AC:R which people have been pestering WiNG about. Well it’s just lucky for you all that I was the (un)lucky T3 writer to be the only person who bought it on the PC so let’s get to the rules and shit.
Tournament format and schedule
- The tournament will consist of twelve (12) qualifying brackets and one (1) finals bracket.
- Players in the qualifying brackets will play one round of Wanted.
- Player scores will be recorded between all matches. All but the one (1) best-scoring player from each bracket will be dropped, leaving twelve (12). The five (5) lowest-scoring players of these players will be dropped, and seven (7) players will advance to the finals bracket.
