This is a double elimination tournament. Each 2 teams will play best out of 3. Maps played are:

  1. oasago2_081 (0.8.1 version of oasago2)
  2. ps37ctf2 (Lightning in place of Nailgun)
  3. pul1ctf

Each team will choose 1 map. If there's a tie then the third map will be played as tie-breaker.

The official servers of the tournament are: rat CTF hosted on dedicated Montreal, Canada for NA vs NA and NA vs EU games (Europe and US West coast will get 100-150 ping with /snaps 40, US East Coast about 50 ping) and rat EU CTF for EU vs EU games. NOTE: we will not use :f ctf servers because  :f mod has too many differences. Rat mod has many of its own competitive features and we welcome you to see them for yourself!

Note: There will be times when the ping differences are still too big to be considered fair. In those cases, the two teams can agree to play 1 map on the Montreal server and 1 map on the EU server out of consideration for ping. However, in case of a tie the third map must be played on the Montreal server.

Weapon damages:

  • Rail 80 dmg
  • Lightning gun 7 dmg
  • Machine gun 6 dmg
  • Gauntlet 50 dmg
  • Rocket launcher 100 dmg (direct hit)
  • Shotgun 110 dmg (full blast)
  • Grenade launcher* 100 dmg (direct hit)
  • Plasma 20 dmg

*in rat mod, grenades bounce on jump pads like players. This change was made to make grenades more viable in ctf.

Tournament will start on August 27 10:00am PST 12:00pm CST 1:00pm EST 19:00 CEST


During grand finals, the team coming from the loser brackets must win two sets (2x two out of three) in order to win. 

Spectators will NOT be allowed, not even fellow clan mates due to the possibility of cheating/ghosting. If you want to see the games, join a spectator server or watch the stream (they will both have an intentional delay to prevent ghosting). The only players allowed to spectate the live games will be referees and commentators. Please let us know if you would like to volunteer to be one! 

In the event a team wishes to switch players during a game, they can call a timeout with /timeout and contact substitutes in that time. It is highly recommended you inform your subs to remain on standby on discord or irc. Otherwise please try to keep the same lineup as much as possible.

If you were wondering, YES you can voice chat together as a team, in fact it is HIGHLY recommended so you are not at a disadvantage against a team that is communicating this way.

Once the tournament starts, any available teams can begin having their matches at any time and the organizers/referees will keep track of the results (just make sure to let us know when/where you are playing). Hopefully, this means less pressure for teams to schedule their games.

Also, please feel free to record your own demos!

Finale winner team will get $100, 2nd place will get $60, and 3rd place will get $40 donated by Pro Naruto. For clarification, the losing team from the final loser brackets will be considered 3rd place.

If you wish to donate towards prize pool for 1st, 2nd and/or 3rd place please send funds to [email protected] and write in memo which position you would like to donate to. (Will update this as we get more donations)

Not playing but want to see the action? All games will be livestreamed at (stream will have a 30 second delay)
