Player's Guide


You can play in as many WO tournaments as you like, collecting points and medals for yourself, your country, and your clan (if you are in one). If you only want to play, you don't need to register, this will happen automatically after your first tournament.

Signing up

To play in a tournament, all you have to do is show up at the time shown on the site, and send a private message to one of the tournament's moderators. This PM should contain your nickname, country and clan (or "no clan"), and whether you can host. Most moderators will not reply to this message, but occasionally post a list of every signed up player to the channel.

If you need to leave for some reason at any time, please don't disappear without a word, notify one of the moderators.

Playing

After the signup period (which lasts for at least 20 minutes), the tournament moderator will create the pairings and post them in the channel. This might take a bit, so please be patient, and don't spam the channel with useless messages.

When you know who your opponent is, decide who will host, then set up the game. If the moderator has already finished posting the pairings and you still don't know whom you should be playing against, ask him.

In all WO games, the scheme file and settings set by the tournament moderator must be used. If you are the hoster, grab the scheme file from this site first. If your opponent hosts, check the settings, and don't let them use a different file.

All players must agree on the map. If you are the hoster and your opponent is not content with the maps you are selecting, keep switching them until you find one they like. If your opponent hosts and you are not content with the map he or she is selecting, you may ask that they switch them until you find one you like. Lighting up means you agree to the map selection.

After the game, the winner must report to the tournament moderator.

After the tournament

After the tournament is over or if you are eliminated, please upload your replays from that tournament, even if you lost in the first round. Don't rely on your opponents to do this, if they don't, you will lose points too, along with your clan and country.

Your replays will be added to your page as soon as possible. You will get a penalty for each missing replay (the penalty is only added after 7 days to give us some time to match them). Points are finalized one week after WO ends, until then you may get your points back by uploading your missing replays.

For "best of 3", "best of 5", etc. games please upload all replays.

Clans

You may switch clans, leave your clan, or join a new clan during a running WO. The clan you use for signing up in a specific tournament will get the points from that tournament.

Handling cows

Cows happen. Sometimes accidentally, sometimes not. Sometimes you can't tell which one. A general way of handling them would be this:

Milk them.
• If you kill the opponent by cowing, you lose automatically.
• If you kill one or more worms by cowing, you have to kill the same number of your own worms having at least as much health.
• If you damage one or more worms by cowing, you have to do similar damage to your own worm(s), even if it kills them.
• If you cow without causing any damage (e.g. attacking before crate but missing, blocking in certain schemes, etc.), you have to skip once.

These rules only affect the first cow. Not doing the penalty or cowing the second time automatically results in losing.

Penalties

Doing (or not doing) certain things in a tournament may result in a penalty. This may be a subtraction of X points, losing your points gained in that tournament, or both. In very serious cases you may be disqualified from the current Olympics. Disqualification means complete deletion from the Standings and Stats and further inability to play in tournaments or host them.

The following things will be penalized:

• Cheating with the results and misleading the tournament moderator or the WO staff.
• Hosting the same map over and over again unless the tournament description or moderator says so.
• Hosting with a different scheme or settings unless the tournament moderator says so.
• Using any kind of gameplay altering external module unless it is allowed in the tournament description.
• Using aliases. You must sign up in every tournament using the nickname you had in your first tournament.
• Impersonating another player.
• Not uploading replays in time.

The WO staff reserves the right to come up with new rules and penalties and retroactively apply them to everyone if there is a need to do that. Generally speaking, if you think something should not be done, just don't do it.

Remember that every penalty you get also penalizes your clan and country.
