Single Player Cup 2022



Good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night everyone and welcome to the 2022 Single Player World Cup! It's been a few years since this was hosted so for those who may not know here's a little introduction.
This event is the top event for single player replay makers across the globe, THE place to throw down and prove you're the best.
This event will be an open qualifying round, followed by 5 rounds to narrow down 32 competitors to just 1 winner.



To qualify all you have to do is send in your best replay. Anything goes, 750 frames max, must be a new replay. You must submit this via discord dm to me and only me [Charkra#2388]. It won't count if you submit it anywhere else, or to anyone else and it must be the .rpl file. If you made the replay in a custom mod please include the mod with the replay otherwise I may not be able to view it. To prove that it is a new replay, the ENGAGE DISTANCE must end in a 1. For example, the engage distance can be 101, 151, anything so long as the last number is a 1. If your replay does not do this I will send it back to you and shout at you. (ask for a new one)*
*If the mod you are using alters the engagepos, then that number must also end in a 1 for verificiation. You may also use the ingame replay submission system now! Just go ingame, to the news tab and on the right click the SP cup banner.



Rounds 1 -> Final:
From that point on, we will pick the top 32 replays and put forward themes that your replays must play on. We'll half the number of contestants until we have just 1 left standing, at which point we will have our 2022 SP Cup Champion!
The themes for each round will be announced and edited into the OP of this thread upon announcement so that we don't have anyone trying to get ahead of the game!

Rules:
Some minor rules as formalities.
Don't steal replays.
Follow the criteria for each round
Hacking is allowed
Changing the mod (unless otherwise specified) is allowed
No collabs (unless otherwise specified) are allowed

Deadlines:
The deadlines may alter depending on how deep in the tournament you are so STAY VIGILANT.
For the Qualifying Round you'll have 10 days from the date this tournament is posted. I may extend this if we're still getting entries, but this will be the only extension. All other deadlines are final with 0 negotiation, if you enter we assume you have the time.




The reason the replay must be sent to me and only me is because I will be anonymising the replays before passing them onto our expert judges.
Oh yeah, we have some expert judges by the way;
Fred: replay maker extraordinaire, vastly talented, wonderful human being and a blessing to have involved with this tournament. Previously an ORMO recruiter, so helped set the standard.
Tabby: Technical excellence combined with creativity, and a monster in the replay boards providing cnc to the community by the bucketload.
Iris: Incredible replay maker, particularly dangerous in -30, their expertise will come in super handy! Extra shoutout for helping set this event up.
Tsuion: The winner of the last SP cup, all the way back in 2015! Agreed to come out of retirement just to help judge this event, what a sweetheart!
Flash: You know, Flash? Replay making legend. Yeah. That Flash.

Thank you one and all who sent in a replay for the Single Player Cup 2022! I'm looking forward to sitting through them all and watching them, then passing them on to our judges!
I will still be accepting a few straggling replays in the next few hours if you dm me, but you won't have long so send something in last minute now if you need to.

With the qualifying stage drawing to a close we announce the qualifier item. I present to you a new way to start your battles...
"Single Player Cup 2022 Participants Gong. Inhale. Exhale. You stand ready. The gong is struck, you feel the resonance empower you. Breathe... And go."
Everyone who sent in a replay will receive this exclusive item, complete with re-texturable nameplate. It will be sent out within the week to all participants. Thank you for your patience while we take our tournament to the next stages <3
May the best replay win!

Thank you all for your patience while we took the time to decide how to proceed and more importantly WHO should proceed in the competition.
Due to some limitations and lack of entries we decided the best way to progress the competition would be to skip a round and choose 16 qualifiers to move on to the next round.
It is with great pleasure that I congratulate the following on their progression in the tournament:

Lucci
Nokia
Eamon
Avenue
JJOFFCUT
emoteen12
Nausea
DeepKnight
DaNewNinja
Haluejah
dqw4w9wgxcq
Sandalphon
melrose
rcrichman
akina
greyvoid
Toad


In addition, the best replay of the round award goes to Toad, who will be sent a small bonus! Huge congratulations to them, and everyone who made it through, commiserations to those who didn't make it. We loved watching all of your replays and look forward to your replays next year ;)

The next round is called GLASS. You must make a new replay, the only restriction is that the Dismemberment threshold must be below 70, that is it.
The deadline for this round will be the 17th of May, send your replays to me over discord!

Best of luck everyone, thank you so much, I will post a zip of the replays shortly.

just to get some clarification, does all this mean is that only the dm threshold must be under 70? so dms can be turned off and a replay completely unrelated to dms can be made?

Nice try, and I should clarify:
You can't turn off dms, your replay must, in whatever form it takes, have dms ON and the threshold must be below 70 ;) That is however the only restriction
