ZLAN is multigaming competitionso he asks great versatility from participants. Indeed, being very strong in one or two games will not be enough, as your opponents may dominate you in other tournament games. It’s worse if you go too far in the competition your favorite games may be banned adversary.
The games are as follows, with the rules for this tournament attached to them:
Fall Guys – Absolute knockout : The classic battle royale from Fall Guys. In the first group stage, all the players in the group compete against each other. In the second phase of hens, two hens are grouped together. The player who survives the test gives one point to his team, the player who wins gives his team five points.
ancient ring : Relay boss rush with newly created character. Players must pass the controller every five minutes. They have 45 minutes to kill three bosses: Dragon Agil, Godric and Crimson Wolf Radagon. The call will be denied.
ZUTOM : Modified version of Sutom, specially for the event. You will need to find fifteen words, in a maximum of ten minutes and with a minimum number of attempts. These will be words from five to eight letters. Teams will be ranked by whoever has combined the fewest attempts.
Ryders Republic : A massive race on Riders Republic that brings together all the players in the group in the first stage. For classification, the average number of places of the three players on the team will be taken into account. In the elimination phase, it will be a 6-man race against races, with three runs per kart on five different karts.
Apex Legends : Featured in each stage of the tournament, Apex Legends is the flagship game of ZLAN 2022. In the group stages, all trios of the group compete in two personalized games: on Olympus and Storm Zone. The final ranking of the teams will give the number of points as well as the number of kills. During the elimination phase, the trio will face off in a 3v3 arena across three maps.
WMD Worms : Worms is a ZLAN classic, now logically making a comeback in 2022. In the group stage, it will be an FFA mode with four teams of six hearts. Each player can only play with their own worm. At the final stage, two teams of six hearts compete. In both cases, the games will be played in a personalized mode for ZLAN.
Age of Empires IV : In the group stage, six trios compete in six-player FFA matches lasting fifty minutes. Each trio will only have one member play at a time, and they will take turns playing the keyboard every five minutes. The final phase will be played in a standard 3v3 format. It should be noted that special rules have been set for this game, both in terms of victory conditions and in terms of the possible actions of the players.
Hot wheels on the loose : The game selected by the public, the first for this edition of 2022. The group stage will have courses with six teams, one player per team, on maps created by ZeratoR with collisions activated and a car overlay. Each trio player plays a total of four cards, so each round will be played three times, once per player on each team. The average rating of the three players determines their place. During the elimination phase, the trio will collide with another on four tracks, again with collisions activated.
rocket league : Only present in the final stage, teams will compete in 3v3 matches. The team that wins two of the three rounds wins the game. Three rounds will be played in different game modes: Dropshot, Thermal Guidance and Snow Day.
