G’day Forts Fans!
While we love our official tournaments there are also many community run events taking place each month. In a weekly spotlight on Discord we’ve been highlighting different new and cool things from our amazing community. Everything from custom tournaments, new maps and mods, fan art projects and more.
If you haven’t joined the Forts Official Discord yet here’s a small taste from past spotlights.
So many tournaments!
Forts players certainly enjoy their competitions.
Reloflex’s 2v2 Forts Pro League finished out its second season and crowned a new pair of champions. No spoilers, but they won’t have much time to savor their victory because signups for Season 3 area already underway.
Jdebrusk987 organized a series of weekly tournaments including 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3 which you can watch on his channel.
Jehdo held a massive 16 player 1v1 tournament to close out the summer and generously put forth $1,000 for the prize fund. If you want to see who came away with cash watch his Summer Championship along with co-casters Bobereto and Project Incursus .
For something a little different CronkhinatorYT’s fourth AI tournament pitted pairs of player designed AI bases against one another on a classic map. Watching these AI’s battle was not only highly entertaining, but also highly informative. Watch as the casters, once again Bobereto and Project Incursus break down the AI’s strengths and weaknesses and explain how to exploit them.
