    Wreckfest Knockout Tournament is a 1-on-1 racing tournament.
    Consisting of 2 stages: a group stage and a knockout stage.


    WKT is different from a lot of other tournaments being held in torn. Because all races are being held 1-on-1, participants have to set up all races themselves. This means that you have to look up your next opponent and have a chat with him/her to arrange a time where you race each other -- making it a tournament that is great to meet other people in Torn outside of your faction and friends list.

    The first edition of Wreckfest was held in August and showed that Wreckfest is a tournament where your odds of not going home empty handed are quite high . This was however only possible thanks to the racing community who did send in many donations for the tournament. Without the help of the racing community in Torn it won’t be possible to do this again, so all donations are welcome.

    All donations received will go to the WKT prize pool.
    Your donations will be highlighted in this forum thread unless of course you wish your name to be omitted from the list of donators.

    For the people who missed the previous edition of Wreckfest:

    We handed out prizes valued around $1,200,000,000.
    As could be seen in the link of our first edition of wreckfest during the summer of 2020.
    I did decide to pay the prizes out in the form of donator packs, feathery hotel coupons, energy drinks and xanax, this in order to avoid people being mugged.
    If people wish to donate something else, I will convert those items/money towards one of these items..

    Signing up:

    Send a screenshot containing your racing skill and class to either
    Prezze, Soupy or Jairyll.

    We require a screenshot of your RS in order to determine for which tournament you qualify (everyone below class A or people below 9.0 RS can join the newbie tournament). The screenshot is also necessary in case there is a huge number of people signing up for the main tournament to give us the option to split the main tournament in 2. It also serves as proof that we know you can send race results.


    Tournament structure determination:

    • The tournaments are split into 2 stages: a group stage and a knockout stage.
    • People below 9 RS enter the newbie tournament
    • People not in class A enter the newbie tournament aswell (even if they are over 9RS


    The Main tournament:
    • Startdate: February 08th 2021
    • Estimated end date: 01-03-2021 (note: this depends on number of participants).

    For each stage
    • Participants will have to set up the races with their opponents themselves. (Communicate with your opponent and look for a time/day that suits you both).
    • Racetracks will be determined through rng by me and will consist of 20 laps.
    • Send the race event/screenshot of your race to your group leader.
    • Use your best possible car
    • You will have 2 days to finish each race and send the screenshot/event to your group leader

    Group stage
    • The amount of people signing up will determine how many people are in each group and how many people move on to the knockout stage. (In this edition the groups will be made bigger)
    • Groups are being made by the challonge website itself, I will only supply the names in a list format which the website randomly distributes over groups. If due to the number of participants you end up in a group with 1 person more then others, it is bad luck.
    • Participants get 2 days to finish each race.
    • You race every other person in your group 1-on-1, winning the race will get you 1 point. Losing the race will get you 0 points
    • In case that the group stage ends in a tie for 1st or 2nd place,the people tied for that place will race each other to determine the winner.
    • The topfirst 2 people in each group will qualify for the knockout stage.

    Knockout stage
    • The challonge website creates the seeds for the knockout stage itself, so your result in your group determines where you end up in the knockout bracket. I have ZERO influence over this.
    • Each round will have a different race track, the amount of laps is always 20.
    • You race your opponent 1-on-1, the winner of the race advances to the next round.
    • Per round you have 1-2 days to finish the race and send the screenshot to either Jairyll, Soupy or Prezze.
    • Once we are down to the semifinal the winners of the semifinals will race each other for first place and the losers of the semifinal will race for 3rd place.
    • The top 3 in the tournament get a personalised banner. (Made by Teario)

    People not sending in race results in time, will mean that both people get 0 points for that race. Unless of course the opponent is fedded or inactive for multiple days, in that case the win goes to the other person.


    The Newbie tournament:
    • Startdate: February 08th 2021
    • Estimated end date: 01-03-2021 (note: this depends on number of participants).

    For each stage
    • Stock class E cars only, so get some of those class E cars.
      Stock means cars with upgrades can not be used.
    • Participants will have to set up the races with their opponents themselves. (Communicate with your opponent and look for a time/day that suits you both).
    • Racetracks will be determined through rng by me and will consist of 15 laps.
    • Send the race event/screenshot of your race to your group leader.

    Group stage
    • The amount of people signing up will determine how many people are in each group and how many people move on to the knockout stage. (this edition groups will be made bigger)
    • Groups are being made by the challonge website itself, I will only supply the names in a list format which the website randomly distributes over groups. If due to the number of participants you end up in a group with 1 person more then others, it is bad luck.
    • Participants get 10 days to finish all races
    • You race every other person in your group 1-on-1, winning the race will get you 1 point. Losing the race will get you 0 points
    • In case that the group stage ends in a tie for 1st or 2nd place,the people tied for that place will race each other to determine the winner.
    • The top 2 people in each group will qualify for the knockout stage.

    Knockout stage

    Prize Money newbie tournament
    The prize money for the tournament is split over the group stage and the main tournament.

    First a little bit of extra info about the group stage.

    • The races in the group stage took place on Underdog and consisted of 15 laps.
    • Total track distance = 41.76km (25.95 miles)
    • Amount of kilometers driven in the group stage = 20 756km (12 897 miles)
    • The person with the lowest racing skill to qualify for the knockout stage had at the time of sign up 1.40 RS
    • We had only had 1 crash in the newbie tournament.

    The reporter had some extra time and nicely coloured the drawing in afterwards. Here you see the aftermath of Flids crashed Peugeot 106. We still have no clue how he could mangle that stock class e car up so bad, but as you can see it is ready for the crusher. At least Flid will get something back from it, his crash meant he won the special prize in the newbie tournament.

    • Fastest finish time in the group stage was on behalf of BeepBeepBoop with an amazing time of 0:45:20.12 - 11.82 seconds faster than NSFlygirl1966’s time of 0:45:31.94. The average speed for that finish time was 55.27 km/h while NSFlygirl1966’s average speed was 55.03 km/h.

    • The best average speed over the group stage is also on name of BeepBeepBoop, with an average speed over all his races of 54.49km/h, 2nd fastest average speed went to Kungfuhrer (54.45km/h) and mattynob 3rd with 54.43km/h.

    • Slowest average speed goes to Bt999 with 53.64km/h as an average

    • The smallest difference in which a race finished was 0.53 seconds.

    Prize money main tournament

    The prize money for the tournament is split over the group stage and the main tournament.

    First a little bit of extra info about the group stage.

    • The races in the group stage took place on Industrial and consisted of 20 laps.
    • Total track distance = 43.45km (27 miles)
    • Amount of kilometers driven in the group stage = 34 240km (21 276 miles)
    • The person with the lowest racing skill to qualify for the knockout stage had at the time of sign up 10.21 RS
    • We had 2 crashes in the newbie tournament. First crash in the tournament goes to Greekposer.

    The reporter had some time to make a sketch of the crash. The image shows you how Greekposer lost control of his car and is about to crash while his opponent in the race seemed to have been lucky not to have crashed either. At least Greekposer wins a special prize for his crash.

    • Fastest finish time in the group stage was on behalf of Ashanie with an amazing time of 0:28:01.76 - only 0.15 seconds faster than bLiNd’s time of 0:28:01.91. The average speed for that finish time was 93.01 km/h.
    • The best average speed over the group stage is for Hammer, with an average speed over all his races of 91.94km/h, 2nd fastest average speed went to dromedan (91.92km/h) and bblake17 3rd with 91.80km/h.
    • Slowest average speed goes to QwertyChegie with 85.73km/h as an average (note that he ran a class B car)
    • The smallest difference in which a race finished was 0.01 seconds.

    MAIN TOURNAMENT WRITE UP

    After Round 1:

    Group A
    Based on racing skill at signup we have about 4 people who we could consider the favourites for qualifying. So far those 4 people succeeded in getting the win, however the pressure remains upon them. Currently leading in the group are ColJustJames, Hoentoe, Silver_Rose and Ashanie. We are all curious who will make the first error of them. The underdogs in the group are: AleksandrWolf, eXplosive, LordOfFire and SaraM.

    Fastest finish time group A: ColJustJames 0:28:14.37

    Group B
    This might be one of those groups you didn’t want to end up in. The group contains the winner of the first edition of Wreckfest bblake17(also qualified for winter URT2021 (10th)) and the runner-up of the first edition Reagan. Other 2 people that we consider to be with the favourites are KPCSlor and Cubis, the underdogs in the group are Crannie, Jairyll (shiny steward in WKT), Slipwings and ThePostman. KPCSlor only won with a 1.92 second difference from Crannie. Don’t underestimate the underdogs in this group.

    Fastest finish time group B: bblake17 0:28:13.58

    Group C
    The favourite to win this group is Miro. This is an entire open group where there are no underdogs. Worth mentioning and really not a small feat is that Octon qualified for the WinterUrt 2021. Yes, another qualifier of that fabled tournament is present, great for everyone to compete against. So far we have Okapi, Miro and Jazeejas (one of my lovely stewards) leading in the group. We are currently at the time of writing still missing the result of the Beerstein - Octon race.

    Fastest finish time group C: Okapi 0:28:29.90

    Group D
    We consider in this group 2 favourites for the qualification and the rest of the group as underdogs. As the first edition showed, being favourite does not mean much. 1 of the favourite’s also qualified for the winter URT 2021: Ketone(17th). The other one is TheCarCollector (with such a name you can’t expect less then him to be that, he has a nice collection for those who don’t know him). We have another known name from the newbie series in this group: Greekposer, the winner of the newbie Wreckfest first edition. However he didn’t have a great start in the tournament: First race and first crash for him currently giving cwa311the win. Other people who won their first race in the group are Ketone (who won from the other favourite in this group), Muirisc and emerix.

    Fastest finish time group D: emerix 0:28:05.38

    Group E
    This group has got 2 URT winter 2021 qualifiers, with the big “hammer” and Patapouf. Hammer came 4th and Patapouf came 19th in the URT. Don’t forget the person known to fling bras in the pitstop torn racing channel Dexy in this group. Don’t get distracted.
    After round 1 the 4 leaders are Dexy, Hammer, Aaassh and Kamikazie99.

    Fastest finish time group E: Kamikazie99 0:28:21.56

    Group F
    MIA and stan are considered to be the favourites in this group both won their first race, as did Joseph and Green_Revolver. MIA and Green_revolver face each other in the next round, one of them will suffer their first loss.

    Fastest finish time group F: Stan 0:28:23.71

    Group G
    This group started of fine, yet after the first race one of the racers in the group got permafedded. We decided to void the result of that race and the racer in question became a fillup name, sadly for the group they already had 1 fillup name. So the group will only have 6 participants instead of 7 or 8. With the fedded person falling out, this is a group where no favourite is left now, nor do we have an underdog. Currently Fortunas, Lugburz, Gnarkills and Trachten are leading this group.

    Fastest finish time group G: Lugburz 0:28:25.56

    Group H
    Biggest name in this group is ToxicMonkeyMZC, probably known by the majority of the racing community and with a monster racing skill. The other favourite in this group is bkoz, although he does not see himself in tournaments as a favourite. Brainslug managed to beat bkoz and becomes leader in the group together with ToxicMonkeyMZC, Kafia and Strandevader.

    Fastest finish time group H: Strandevader 0:28:23.44

    Group I
    Racing skill wise we have 3 favourites : Ali_Looya, Madbranch and Tittie_Twister (finished 30th in urtwinter 2021). Besides these 3 we also have another known person from URT Sarovs, known to be the lowest rs racer to make it into URT. 2 of the favourites battled each other on the track already, where Madbranch came out as the winner over Tittie_Twister. Other leaders in the group are Ali_Looya, Fuzzyright1 and Sarovs.

    Fastest finish time group I: Madbranch 0:28:23.73

    Group J
    In group J, your organiser aka Prezze is considered to be the favourite for qualifying. However he really struggled in his race against Dunk666 and only won that race thanks to a great last lap. Shows that anyone can win this group. Current leaders in the group are BloodyKangaroo, Kalaya, Fraziel and Prezze.

    Fastest finish time group J: Fraziel 0:28:11.13

    Group K
    Group K see’s one of the big favourites for the final victory in the tournament named Storm1968. Yes, everyone in this group can race the winner of Winter URT2021 1 vs1. Current leaders in the group are Vasto-Lorde, Storm1968, Kelf and Jenga187

    Fastest finish time group K: Storm1968 0:28:23.05

    Group L
    In group L I consider Yourowner and RefleX_ the guys to beat. In the first race however Yourowner already fell to the pressure of that position and lost his race against sa69. RefleX_ also struggled to win his race, but crossed the finish line 1.33 seconds faster than jessica16. Considering the known fastest times per group, this group sees 3 fast times in the first race of which sadly for Stiiewo his time of 0:28:20.26 doesn’t even land him a win against his opponent. Current leaders in the group are Krachas, Metall2ica, sa69 and RefleX_. Leokes in this group is one of the stewards of Wreckfest.

    Fastest finish time group L: Krachas 0:28:13.78

    Group M
    ExarionThar and ShuKa are the favourites in this group, another name that might ring a bell with people after last urt is the name MonChoon(38th) , both he and ExarionThar(37th) qualified for urt. In the first race both of them faced off against each other of which MonChoon crossed the finish line 1.16 seconds faster than ExarionThar. Current leaders are MonChoon, Shuka, bobdawildman and Skywyre.

    Fastest finish time group M: Skywyre 0:28:23.67

    Group N
    Group N is an entire open group without favourites from the start. Current leaders after round 1 are andwappe, bLiNd, Johor and Who_knows_who.

    Fastest finish time group N & overall: bLiNd 0:28:01.91

    Group O
    GFTL, Manchineel and Soupy are the favourites in this group. However sadly our fellow organiser Soupy has been inactive for quite awhile. After round 1 none of the favourites managed to win. Cookdandbombd defeated Manchineel with 2.15 seconds difference and GFTL lost his race from BuzzHead. Current leaders in the group are BuzzHead, cookdandbombd, The_Joker and most likely we can add HotAngel to the list, it depends if Soupy logs in on time and can still race.

    Fastest finish time group O: BuzzHead 0:28:22.91

    Group P
    3 favourites in this group in our opinion: Mathematics, Donco and MaGnO. MaGnO and Mathematics faced each other in the first race resulting in a win for Mathematics with what most likely will be the smallest win difference in the main tournament only 0.02 seconds difference!
    The other leaders in the group are Donco, boisterous and Jibblets.

    Fastest finish time group P: boisterous 0:28:22.58

    Woot! Maybe this year my biggest influence won't be losing all three games and getting other three members additional race due to the same points!

    there will be more then 3 races this year, groups will be bigger. To avoid having 1 loss and being at risk of losing.
    Also same amount of points = always a race now to determine

    Praise Tymora, Beshaba, LucyPanda, Tyche, Fortuna, Oponn, Shai, Xolot, Chernobog, Belobogl, and all the Gods of Luck, both good and bad.

    you see someone had to think.. humm what do i think of this guy, and that a great honour

    for somone to spend even 10 seconds deciding what they think of me

    It does not mean you don't have a chance in the main tournament. The website I use to track the results for everyone divides the people into groups. So it could be that rngesus takes kind to you and you are in a group with people with lower RS aswell not only the winner of a group will qualify but the top 2.

    Last edition the highest RS entrant didn't qualify for the knockout stage of the tournament.

    ALso depending on the total number of people joining the tournament I might divide the participants based on RS.

    If you don't try you can't win anything
