Spyro 2 Race Tournament

Tournament Format

The run category for this tournament is "40 orb". This constitutes collecting 40 orbs and beating the game. Fast disc speed on PS2 is allowed. Skipping into Crush, Gulp, or Ripto is not allowed. Otherwise, all glitches and skips are allowed.


The tournament will be run in a double elimination format through Challonge. Byes will be awarded as needed for the first round to the top seeds to fit the players properly into the brackets. Players will be expected to play 1 game per week in the Winner's Bracket, or 2 in the Loser's Bracket.


Dates

Registration begins: Jan. 3rd

Registration ends: Jan. 24th

Tournament begins: Jan. 27th

Tournament ends: Early March, depending on entrants count.


Seeding

The participants with the 4 best PBs will be seeded. If we exceed 64 participants, the top 8 will be seeded. All other entrants below this threshold will be randomized. Please submit your time to the Spyro 2 leaderboards to be eligible for seeding.

Rules

All Speed Runs Live (SRL) racing rules apply. All participants must use approved emulators/consoles and stream their races. We recommend that you locally save your race-stream file in the event that your stream is disconnected and you are “proofcalled” on your time. If you are not registered with SRL, please do so now. If you do not know how to set up or use an SRL account, please contact a moderator for assistance. Once the race is completed, please get in contact with a member of the admin team to update the standings and times.


Scheduled matches need to be played before the specified deadline.


We realize that a tournament of this magnitude has a lot of people with a lot of schedules to work around. That being said, if you schedule a match with someone and then bail on the scheduled time without prior notice, you may be removed from the tournament at the organizer’s discretion.

Any disputes will be handled by the mod team, who will have final say in all matters. Should a member of the mod team be involved in the dispute, that member will have no say in the final decision.


Match Procedure

Discuss and schedule a time to play your match against your opponent. We recommend using Challonge, but other methods of communication are certainly welcome.

When both participants are ready, begin a race in the #speedrunslive IRC channel on irc.speedrunslive.com or at http://www.speedrunslive.com/channel/ with the command:

.startrace spyro2

Once the race channel has been created, join that specific channel. Within the channel, change the goal with the command:

.setgoal 40 Orb

Once that has been completed, both participants should enter the race. This can be performed with the following command:

.enter

When both participants are ready to begin the race, have their stream available, and are waiting on a file on the file select screen, type the following command:

.ready

The Race bot will then begin to countdown in the race chat, and upon reaching 0 both players will begin the race. The conclusion of these races is on the final hit to Ripto.

Once you have reached this screen, in the race channel, type:

.done

And that’s it. Once the race is completed, please get in contact with a member of the admin team to update the standings and times. Congratulations!

Some additional handy commands for the race:

  • .quit - If something arises and you need to remove yourself from the race, then use the .quit command.

  • .undone - Use if you prematurely type .done or .quit before the race has ended.

FAQs / Q&As

  • In the rare case of a race tie (as determined by the .done times recorded on SRL), racers will have to replay the race. We don’t think this will happen, but wanted to spell that out.

  • If your name on the Spyro 2 leaderboards does not match your Challonge name, please contact the mods so we can assign the correct PB to you.
