[ANNOUNCEMENT] ACUK World Championships

The ACUK World Championships aim to find, and celebrate the top Arkham City players on the planet. We’ve seen the YouTube videos, we’ve scoured the leader boards and now it’s time to create the ultimate Arkhamverse competitive platform.

The championships will consist of multiple 1 v 1 rounds in which participators compete in gaining the highest score on a particular challenge map. Make your way to the final for a chance to become the ultimate Arkham City player, and that won’t be all, we’ll have a few prizes along the way too!

By now everyone has had a chance to get to grips with the control system and hit their high scores. Whether you're an expert at predator, combat or both, now is the time to compete against your fellow Arkhamites to find out who is the best in the world.

ROUND SIX - THE FINAL - WINNER batman404


With a couple of FANTASTIC scores, batman404 has topped our Batman tournament and we'll be sending him a prize out ASAP.

Prison Riot Extreme: 280890
Lost City Extreme: 0:37.36

CROD and I had a lot of fun testing out and balancing some Combat/Predator combinations and scoring.
What we arrived at is that combat stands as points gained at the end of the fight that translate exactly as your tournament score. Predator points will be starting at 300,000pts at 0:00, -1000pts for each second, 100,000pt penalty for each medal missed. So that's zero points if you miss all three medals and zero points if you take longer than five minutes.

The first two rounds are direct head-to-head knockout battles with other users. Winners from Round 2 will be put into a table for Round 3, from which the top four players of each of the two tables go into the Quarter Finals. Quarter Finals, Semi Finals and the Final are straight forward knockout rounds.

For each round, users will have three days to get their top score on a pair of challenge maps; one combat, one predator. They won't be informed what the two maps are until the first day of their three days. They will, however, get an email a few days before the round starts to let them know when we'll be starting.

To make sure that scores are current and belong to the correct user, score submissions must follow the prescribe format or will be discounted. All users must show their final summary page with a player card that shows their ACUK username, the round number and the round key word. Users can use a plain sheet of paper or can print out the template below. See images for proper submission format; please note that I need to be able to see the medals in the bottom right corner of the combat map.

This sounds really good. It'll be interesting to see who the best is. I won't be participating but good luck to everyone that is.

I hadn't played for ages either, until we needed to work out the points system. It comes back pretty quick though! Hopefully the time off will be a good leveller.

No. You just need a pen, paper and camera.

We'll be starting with Batman. Other characters to follow (purely because not everyone will have all the characters).

Details on format to come.

Sweeeeeeeet man, so just proof of your score is all you need, i'm guessing just a note of your acuk username near your highscore and just taking a picture of it?

I only really play as Catwoman on all the maps, time to get practice using B-man :oldyella:

This would be the PERFECT time to finally re-use my capture card. Can I record my highscores and put them up? Or...?

Also, how do you rank predator? By time, challenges, or both?

Ok, I 'll be honest: I was skeptical when Necro told me about this.
But this actually sounds really fun :oldyella:

I'm all over the Iceberg Lounge :lol:

Most other maps I can easily 3 Batarang it but getting the high score is a whole other thing. That's mixing in as much variation and gadgets as you possibly can, high combos, flawless rounds. I reckon it's gonna be really fun to see the kind of scores people can get.

Cue training music!!:
