The tournament is approaching rapidly and we’re nearing the first matches. I want to clarify a few things.
We’ve now got several streamers on board that will live stream as many matches as possible. It’s recommended that you fly your match on the scheduled time in order for it to be streamed. Rescheduling is allowed, but should you decide to do that, it’s important to include the streamer in that process. The assigned streamer(s) for your match are listed in the streaming schedule on the ED post.
Try to find a new time that suits both teams and the assigned streamer. Should the streamer be unavailable on the new time, you must still inform him and the TACT admins. And remember, joining the **Gamemaster** slots during the fight is prohibited and grounds for disqualification if done. Those slots are solely meant for the streamers/TACT Admin to use. When shot down please disconnect.
The elimination format and schedule has been posted to the ED thread:
Several of you have brought up questions regarding the rule “Known DCS bugs and exploits must not be used to gain an advantage”. However, that does not mean *everything else* is allowed. The reason for the vague rule is that we cannot know everything in advance and should a clear, unsportsmanlike behavior be detected, it is grounds for disqualification. These things can be hard to define exactly but most of us recognize severe and deliberate exploitation when we see it.
**Due to the uneven modeling of ECM between modules, we’ve decided to prohibit the use of any ECM for TACT 21-1. Some modules are affected and some aren’t yet.**
**Use of 16 or 32 second memory in the F/A-18 attack radar is prohibited**
**Use of “target size - small” on the F-14 is prohibited**
**We highly discourage you from launching Aim-54s in active mode BEYOND 10 nm; ACM Switch up / PH-ACT / PSTT lock or PAL, as these launches have been prone to desync**
We recognize that there’s multiple accounts on the F-14 issues and realise that enforcing the above rules is difficult, especially with how fragile client tracks are. If there are instances of 54 desync it is likely you will forfeit that round.
We can provide servers for the match times listed. I will set them up and make them available to the teams that want to use them. Feel free to use your own servers as well, if it suits you better.
