The hottest event in real-time strategy

June 7, 2021

THE GAMES (LITTERALLY) HAVE BEEN PLAYED!!

Requiem's team ''Super Delicious'' with Harzer and Orb has won the Gold Cup!

It was a blast and each and every community had a blast, based on reactions in chat and also by the organizers. Thanks all for doing this!

Commanders of all worlds - Rejoice!

Some weeks ago our team has been contacted by the admins of Planetary Annihilation and Forged Alliance Forever (Supreme Commander) communities.

They came over with an absolutely stellar idea of organizing a tournament featuring the three prominent Total Annihilation-inspired games and that they wanted to include BAR as one of them.

Purpose of the Triathlon

To form the bonds between those awesome communities and praise the legacy of Chris Taylor's magnificent creations. Without any second thoughts, we loved the concept immediately, so here we are, announcing...

The hottest event in real-time strategy is coming this weekend!

The RTS triathlon is a 2v2 tournament where the 2 players unfamiliar with each game will be coached by a player experienced with it. Four representatives from each community has been chosen to form the teams of three.

For the past few weeks the participants have trained to achieve understanding of the different games. It has been a lot of fun discovering the similarities and the slight nuances that make every single one of them so unique. If you would like to see the coaching streams, you can see them all on RTS Triathlon Discord channel. We are having a ball there! :)

The tournament day matches will be casted by the coaches of the respective teams. To watch them tune in to the official Twitch channel of the RTS Triathlon:

FAF LIVE (starting at 15:00 UTC on 5th of June)

Rules of the event:

  • Teams will play a single elimination tournament with a bronze match. Each round is a 3 game series where each game is played once.
  • The four teams has been reviewed and formed in such a way that it is fairly balanced with accordance to players' relative skills in the three games.
  • The maps roster for the tourney is being discussed right now, but one thing is certain - the finals are going to be run on the three versions of the epic Supcom classic map - Seton's clutch, which has its analogues in BAR (a.k.a. Supreme Crossing) and PA as well.
