Relic is proud to announce, the War Paint Championship Series! Funded by the War Paint Skins available in the in-game store, the War Paint Championship Series is a 1v1 tournament that invites up to 16 of the top competitors from the Go4CoH2 ESL series along side 16 wild cards that make it into the tournament through two qualifier rounds.

This is a tournament for the community by the community. Each sale of the War Paint skins between now and September 4th not only contribute to the tournament's prize pool but also unlock a variety of unique and exciting rewards for the purchasers of the skins as well including free skins, decals, faceplates, t-shirts, and even a paid trip for 2 to Relic Studios in Vancouver, Canada! For more details on all the rewards available for War Paint contributors, check out War Paint Milestone Tracker now!

Tournament Details

The War Paint Championship Series will run over a period of five (5) weeks. During this period, there will be two (2) Qualifier Rounds in which up to 64 competitors will be able to compete to qualify to participate in the tournament. The top 8 competitors from each Qualifier Round will move on to participate in the tournament which begins on August 28th, 2016. The other 16 competitors will be invited to participate in the War Paint Championship series based on their performance in the ESL Go4CoH2 Cups, making a total of up to 32 competitors for the tournament.

    No need to upload the replays? So casting is limited to the chosen caster who will stream on Relics Twitch channel? I hope you will alter the rules regarding this matter, this would be kind. :)

    So in order to be eligible for the contributor prizes you have to purchase a warpaint skin by or before the 4th of September.

    Purchases before the announcement of the event do count right? Since I can already see the skins 33% off at the in-game store I presume that this is the case but I posted this anyway just to be sure :blush:

    edit: After reading the post again, I realised that the 33% discount applies to everyone so my hypothesis above is invalid!

    Cool thing. Its nice to see another tourney.
    Just one question, I bought all war paint skins on release, so obviously I cant buy them again. By looking on the Milestone Tracker i realized, that there are many giveaways for contributors. The question is how can I participate in those without purchasing the same skins again? Do you plan to publish new skins, or is there another way that I just overlooked?

    Nice initiative. Even though I doubt there will be a lot of new sales since most of the guys who wanted these skins bought them already. Like 0ld_Shatterhand said there is no way for us to support this campaign after the announcement.

    However, I hope we can reach the next milestones - a live finale in Vancouver would be epic.

    At times like this I wish there was an option to gift in-store items to friends. That functionality is sorely missing, especially since there are many people who want the skins but can't buy them directly.

    so, instead of using money from community content to improve the tools so better content can be made, its used for a tournament that only a tiny minority of people can play in?

    thats just sad tbh

    Unfortunately the revenue generated by the War Paint skins would never be enough to give the CoH2 tools the overhaul you are looking for. However, the revenue generated can be still used in other ways that give back the community, such as this.

    Anyone who has purchased (for real currency, not Supply) any of the War Paint skins between the release of the skins to September 4th, 2016 is considered as a "contributor" to the War Paint Championship Series and thus eligible for the Milestone rewards.

    I whole heatedly agree. I pushed to have a feature like this added for this promotion but unfortunately it was not possible to do at the time. It is something we are looking into and considering for the future.

    Very glad to see this, I don't normally care for cosmetic stuff but I bought a pack to support the initiative.

    Thanks for the insight. It certainly doesn't surprise me that changing the mod tools would chew up substantial hours of labour. They can be overwhelmingly complex.

    Given the basis of this tournament however, can you advise as to whether there is any possibility of official vehicle model assets being released to aid future skin creation?

    While I can appreciate skins aren't likely to let Relic employees have money fights any time soon, the models presumably wouldn't require much effort to release (with the possible exception of the legal team), and the massive gains to efficiency and detail skin modders by having accurate models really can't be overstated. The time lost to burning every revision of a skin and having to load up a game to test the changes just to find out if seams line up is a massive time sink and barrier to content creation.

    Cheers

    Are the milestones rewards retroactive? Do I get the rewards from the milestone 2 if I buy the skins now?

    Does purchasing them with Steam-funds count as purchasing with Cash?

    The rewards will be sent out when they are ready. Things like skins, faceplates, and decals are currently being designed and once completed, will be integrated into the game and then given out as rewards. All this takes time and it is not yet clear when their release will be.

    This is indeed something we have been looking into. Unfortunately it is something on the back burner right now but I am hoping it is something we can do before the end of the year.

    For anyone and everyone, if you purchased any of the War Paint skins between the time they were released to September 4th, 2016 using your Steam Wallet, you are considered a War Paint Contributor.
