Quite a few of you have been enjoying a bit of Uncharted 3’s Multiplayer the past month, as has been demonstrated by some rather healthy meet turn outs twice a week. So I guess it’s time to revive the old Uncharted Treasure Bearer tournament!
Each of the Treasure Bearer competitions we ran during Uncharted 2’s days had a new winner. They were Yogdog, myself, and most recently Goodgoa. Will we see another new name carved into the treasure?
First the prize, in the form of a book. It’s quite a big book, filled with lots of lovely pictures, all about the development process of Uncharted 3. That’s right, it’s Uncharted: Drake’s Journal, written by Nolan North himself.
How do you get to win it? Well, the tournament will take place on Thursday 8th of December, starting at 8PM GMT. I hope lots of people can make it, as the maximum number of players will be 20, split into two parties of 10, and teams of 5.
To handle the 20 players, I’m reviving the competition layout of old, but across 5 rounds. Each round will consist of a 10 minute match played on a randomly selected map and a predetermined game mode. At the end of each round the lowest scoring player, based on kills, deaths and assists, is eliminated from each team before progressing to the next round.[drop2]
The gametypes we’ll be using are in order:
-Three Team Deathmatch
-Free For All
A couple of brief points. In Plunder, a treasure capture will count as an extra 3 kills, so try and capture the treasure, it’s worth it! Whilst in Three Team Deathmatch, people will be paired up based on the previous round results, and then, because we need 5 players to go through to the semi-finals, only the lowest scoring player on the lowest scoring team will be eliminated.
These and a couple of extra things, like how teams are decided, are written up all formally on page 2.
To enter, send an email to me at [email protected] before midnight on Tuesday 6th of December, with the subject line of “Uncharted 3 Treasure Bearer” and include your TSA and PSN ID.
The people playing, parties and so on will then be confirmed next Wednesday.
Also, don’t forget that there is an Uncharted 3 meet this week on both Thursday 1st and Saturday 3rd of December. If we have a bumper crop, then maybe we can split up into more than one group.
