Now that it is New Year, we start 2017 with a few updates to the mod.

Introducing Ranked Team Servers


Ranked team servers are now available for ranked team play.

Teams will be ranked and can compete for the top position on the leaderboards, leading to an eventual team play-offs

How it works

  • Server that have the tag [TEAM] in their name are for ranked team gameplay.
  • The teams are created in the server lobby. You can invite up to 4 players in your team and you will see their location on the map at all times.
  • If you're up for the challenge, you can also try playing in a one-man-team against everyone else.
  • Each team has a rating that will change after the game ends and the match is logged into the leaderboard system.
  • The rating system is very similar to the current ranked elo system.
  • A team is defined by the players playing in it. Every time you play with different people, a new team will be created.
  • Any of the team members can change the name of their team via the team page. Please keep the BR rules in mind.
  • if you are on a team and are killed, you do not get kicked from the server. Instead, you enter spectate mode but are locked to only spectating your fellow teammates.
