Welcome to the AO tournament thread. Allies Overhaul is a map edit still in development that attempts to make Allies vs Allies more interesting without fundamentally changing core game play. You can find more info here: ... 83&t=20529.

Signing Up



On May 26th at 12pm EST (4pm UTC) I will hold the tournament. It'll be double elimination with 8 players. The first map of each round will be pre-decided, and the the loser of the previous round decides the next map. Loser's Bracket games will be a best of 1. There will only be one match played per round in the loser's bracket. All normal rounds will be a B03. Finals will be a B05.

Factions: As this is an Allies Overhaul Tournament, faction picking will have some rules to it. The first match of each round is always an Allies mirror (countries can differ). The loser of the previous match can pick his faction, however, there must always be at least one Allies player in the match. For example, if the losing player pick Soviets, then the other player has to play Allies. If he picks Allies, the other player can pick either Soviets or Allies.

Rules will be standard RA rules (explored, no crates, etc) on the latest version of AO.

*I will likely add more maps before the start of the tournament.

Prize Pool

Prize pool is $160. It'll be split up with 50% going to 1st place, 30% to 2nd place, and 20% to third place. 2nd place will be loser of finals, 3rd place will be loser of loser's bracket finals.
It'll be distributed through paypal.

You can stick my name down too for some qualifying :)

I think some planning towards game times will make things run a lot smoother, and is more enjoyable for the viewers too, as they can make sure they watch the match ups they want to see.

So there's been some stuff going on behind closed doors, and I've been convinced to -un-cancel this!

Qualifiers were skipped, but currently we are at 7/8 participants (N/a and Netnazgul msged me privately to sign up).

The tournament will be double elimination. Also I screwed up on the time. It's actually 4pm UTC this Saturday, not 5pm UTC.

There's a semi-private discord server I've set up for the tournament. If you want in just send me a msg.

I've also edited the rules a bit since we know how many participants there are.

Current Signups for the Tournament (7/8 ): Blackened, Eskimo, Lorrydriver, ZxGannon, Netnazgul, N/A, Smitty

Awesome can't wait!

Can we directly spectate or do we have to get on stream? If so, who is streaming?

The games will be hosted on public lobbies. If the participants are fine with it anyone can spectate. No one has said they'll be streaming, though Lorrydriver might stream his first person perspective. I'll be streaming if my internet holds up.
