Competitive Play

From Dystopia Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Dystopia's team oriented gameplay is extremely suitable for competitive action, and teams have continued to form and participate in Dystopia’s ever growing clan scene since the mod's inception. Several tournaments and leagues have been executed and organized to figure out just which team is the best.

Team Dystopia has worked tirelessly to ensure their game remains competitive and balanced throughout each update. They are currently sponsoring the Dystopia Global League to eliminate volatility which has erupted in previous events.

Dystopia Global League

The DGL is the only currently active competitive community for Dystopia. Its main function is to organize hundreds of players into a few different divisions, but it also hosts regular shoutcasts, a news bulletin, and related text articles. See the about page on the official DGL website to learn more.

The longest running and most active division is the Global 5vs5 (currently on Season 3), where teams can challenge each other through a ladder system and are allowed to field five players a match.

To learn how to join or create a competitive Dystopia team through the DGL, view the help page.

Shoutcasts and other major matches are announced through the official DGL Steam Community group.

The DGL also has an IRC channel, #dystopia-league on irc://irc.gamesurge.net.

Questions and comments about the DGL can be posted on the forum.

Pick-Up Games

Pick-Up Games, referred to as PUGs, are competitive in nature but do not require players to be on formal clans or teams. At the beginning of a game, all players become spectators, and two team captains are selected. The team captains take turns picking players for each team. When all players have been chosen, a number of rounds are played, and then the cycle repeats.

PUGs are routinely organized by the Dystopia PUG Steam Community group, but are also often spontaneously hosted by server admins.
