I am happy to announce Crap Map Cup, a new 96 player multi-draw random seeding (FA Cup style round draw, top 32 players receive first round bye) 1v1 single elimination event utilising some of the crappest maps we have in Age of Empires II. Of course I jest, but I’m sure we have all raged and blamed a loss on a **** map! Well, you can’t do that here. Every map has been picked to cause as much pain and suffering as possible. Whether you’ll be inflicting or receiving the pain, will be up to you. There’s a good chance one can’t come without the other.
Why? Why not! There is a good mix of different maps and settings that should allow for a variety of strategies and also lots of memey content and fun for viewers to watch.
What? The maps selected are Alpine Lakes, Arabia (current rms), Ravines, Bog Islands, Greenland, Monsoon, Team Islands, Wolf Hill, Metropolis, Megarandom, Crater, Pacific Islands and Swamp Arena.
When? The tournament is scheduled to start on 20th of April.
Sign ups open: Thursday 24th of March 13.00 GMT
Sign ups close: Sunday 17th of April 23.59 GMT
Crap Map Cup is all going to be about embracing stupidly. There won’t be a prize pool, but I’ll be buying some non cash prizes. If you are able to contribute to a cash prize pool then please let me know via DM or you can send on to my dedicated gaming PayPal at [email protected]. Anything and everything is much much appreciated.
