Download and connection issues (IP v6)

Dear commanders,

we are receiving a lot of complaints about unavailable services. In detail the What’s new? tab in the client, downloads from our content servers (maps, mods, replays, etc.) are broken for all users using IPv6.

We are aware of this issue and sorry for the inconvenience. While fixing the server setup might take a while, a confirmed workaround is deactivating IPv6 on your computer. Our fellow contributers have created a walkthrough how to do that on Windows 10 in our wiki here (use on your own risk).

Shared Army Tournament

 

Tournament for the 21st of July, 17:00 GMT
Hosted by keyser

This is a double elimination tournament with the latest version of “Shared army” mod enabled.

There is a rating cap. In order to balance a bit more the team the following principle apply :

-∞ – 1000 rating = 1point
1000 – 1199 rating = 2 points
1200 – 1399 = 3 points
1400 – 1599 = 4 points
1600 – 1799 = 5 points
1800 – 1999 = 6 points
2000 – 2199 = 7 points
2200 – 2399 = 8 points
2400 – ∞ = 9 points

10 points limit cap

We will use the highest rating from ladder and global leaderboards for the calculation. Ratings will be checked at tournament start, however mass rating dumping is discouraged and will be investigated at random, you have been warned. Smurfing will be severely punished.

The number of player per team can go from 1 to 8.

There is only 1 ACU per team.

/!\ Be careful about the use of UI mod managing the economy like ecomanager that will also impact the other player on your team. /!\

All other settings are as default.
Each round has a 60 minute time limit to complete. Any rematches that occur due to draws or crashes will not increase the time limit.
If a disconnect or any other disruption occurs, the outcome will be decided by a tournament director, any decisions made are final.
If a match doesn’t start within 15 minutes of the TD announcing the round a TD may disqualify any player causing delay.

Prizes:

1st Place: Standard “Strategic Genius” avatar Image
2nd Place: Your choice of factional face or logo avatar.
3rd Place: Your choice of factional logo avatar

PC Vote Results

Greetings Commanders,

Voting has closed, and the results are in. We are excited to provide the results for you all.

Before we reveal the winner, we’d like to thank everyone who applied for the role, we appreciate the time you have put in and your patience during the voting process. We hope that everyone will continue to contribute regardless of title.

We’re happy to announce that the winner is FtXCommando!

For those interested, here are the statistics for the voting process:

In total, we received 391 first-priority votes and 369 second-priority votes. Tallying the results of the first-picks, we get the following:

 

Sum of first-pick votes in detail:

Rowey        91
Picoo        12
Biass        100
GFY_DePonny  63
FtXCommando  125

Alternative voting works as follows: In sequence, we eliminate the candidate with the lowest votes, and redistribute first-pick votes to said candidate across the remaining candidates, according to their 2nd preference. Doing this results in graphs as follows:

Runoff 1 (Eliminating Picoo)

Runoff 2 (Eliminating GFY_DePonny)

Runoff 3 (Eliminating Rowey)

In the end after 3 runoff rounds, the result is 132 votes for biass and 173 votes for FtXCommando, so FtXCommando wins and is our new player councilor.

Full numbers and the python source code that generated this is available here: https://github.com/FAForever/notebooks/blob/master/pc_vote_results.ipynb

An alternative excel-based runoff iteration was made by giebmasse here, confirming the result: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hpy1gambxz9bios/PC%20election%202k18.xlsx?dl=0
