To win, you have to be good everywhere!
The NWFZ is a multi game competitionso ask for a great versatility of the participants. In fact, being very strong in one or two games will not be enough, as your opponents could overpower you in the other games in the tournament. Worse still, if you go far in the competition, your favorite games could be banned by the opponent.
The games are as follows, with the attached rules for this tournament:
Fall Guys – Ultimate Knockout : Classic Fall Guys Battle Royale. In the first group stage, all the players in the group compete against each other. In the second hen phase, two hens are grouped together. A player who survives a test gives his team one point, a player who wins gives his team five points.
elden ring : Boss Rush in relay, with a newly created character. Players must pass the controller every five minutes. You have 45 minutes to kill three bosses: Radagon’s Dragon Agheel, Godrick, and Crimson Wolf. Convocations will be prohibited.
ZUTOM : Modified version of Sutom, special for the event. There will be fifteen words to find, in a maximum of ten minutes and in as few attempts as possible. They will be words between five and eight letters. The classification of the teams will be made according to the one that has used the least number of attempts in total.
Republic of Riders : A massive race in Riders Republic, bringing together all the players in a group, in the first phase. For the classification, the average of the places of the three players of a team will be taken into account. In the knockout stage, it will be a 6-man versus race, with three races per map on five different maps.
apex legends : Featured at every stage of the tournament, Apex Legends is a flagship game of ZLAN 2022. In the group stages, all trios in a group compete in two custom matches, at Olympus and Storm Zone. The final ranking of the teams will give a number of points, as well as the number of kills. In the elimination phase, the trios will face off in 3v3 Arena on three maps.
worms weapons of mass destruction : Worms is a ZLAN classic, now therefore it logically returns in 2022. In the group stage, it will be an FFA mode bringing together four teams of six worms. Each player can only play his worm. Two teams of six worms will compete in the final phase. In both cases, the games will be played in a custom mode for ZLAN.
Age of Empires IV : In the group stage, six trios compete in six-player FFA matches lasting fifty minutes. In each trio, only one member will play at a time, and they will take turns on the keyboard every five minutes. The final phase will be played in standard 3v3. It should be noted that specific rules have been established for this game as well, both for the victory conditions and for the possible actions of the players.
hot wheels unleashed : The game chosen by the public, a first for this edition of 2022. In the group stage, there will be tours with six teams, one player per team, on maps created by ZeratoR, with collisions activated and car imposed. Each player in the trio plays four maps in total, so each circuit will be played three times, once per player on each team. The average ranking of the three players determines their place. In the knockout stage, one trio will face off against another on all four circuits, again with collisions turned on.
rocket league : Only present in the final phase, the teams will compete in 3v3 matches. The team that wins two of the three rounds wins the game. All three rounds will be played in different game modes: Dropshot, Thermal Guidance, and Snow Day.
