First Liftoff Tournament announced!

First Liftoff Tournament announced!

To celebrate our presence at Gamescom, we are happy to announce the very first Liftoff tournament, which will run for the duration of Gamescom. You’ve all been competing in multiplayer against 4 other pilots, but now it’s your chance to show your worth competing against the whole of the Liftoff community.

At the end of Gamescom, the fastest pilot on the built-in Pine Valley race will win our very first Liftoff goodie bag. The tournament will run from 18/08 to 21/08 and will be closely followed by the Liftoff team. The top ranking pilot on the Pine Valley leaderboard at the end of the tournament will be the honored winner.

Leaderboards!

Our next update, to be released at the start of Gamescom, will include the much requested Leaderboards feature. Our leaderboards go beyond a simple list of top pilots: it’s a more complex game system that will be updated and improved upon in future updates. We’ll have “Top Race Time” and “Top Lap Time”, a list for all the official tracks, and your personal position data.

To keep things interesting, fresh leaderboards will be created on a monthly basis, allowing everyone to compete for the top ranking of the month. The winners of each month will be remembered in a “Hall of Fame” list and might enjoy some in-game rewards later too. A more concise representation of the leaderboards will also be shown as a text ticker in the multiplayer room, so you are always kept up-to-date while playing in your favourite room.

What’s in the Liftoff goodie bag?

The banner on top shows you exactly whats included: a cool Liftoff Shirt (L) a Liftoff branded USB card, two funky badges and of course the ever lasting glory of winning the first Liftoff Tournament!
