Due to some necessary work still to be carried out on the site, the season is going to remain closed for match submissions until further notice.
We apologise for any inconvenience/disappoint caused. We are working as fast as we can to get things up and running, and hope to bring you the season very shortly. In the meantime, feel free to schedule your JDCE matches if you are taking part.
Furthermore, events will still be scheduled as normal, so keep an eye out for further announcements!
since we have 16 players signed up, the first thing I did was match players who signed up to be with random. This was done by putting the names (on paper) of the six players who asked to have randomly assigned partners, in a hat. If I got any two from the same clan, the whole process was to start again - but thankfully it worked the first time.
The teams (and vetoes) are as follows:
Krzysiek + Smoke
Herobrine + Grytmastern (EOTM & RPOP)
Naps + Lynx (EOTM & RPOP)
Ragnarok + Purplejazz (EOTM & Stronghold)
Lazarro + Hyperion
Firerabbit + Superjazz (HMK & RPOP)
A7med + batata (EOTM & RPOP)
AhMo + Lahm
The next thing to announce is that there will be a mappool of 11 CTF maps. Each team will get to veto two of these 11 maps, so pick wisely:
Employee of the Month
Hall of the Mountain King
Re-Purposed Offshore Platform
Further rules will follow - Also, note that it will be a double elimination knockout tournament.
Any member of each pairing can announce vetoes - either by posting a comment or by messaging me directly - and they will be finalised by me adding them to the newspost. The deadline for vetoing maps is 23:59 GMT Sunday 21 July.
JDCE will be returning alongside JDC 30! However, this time with a twist;
JDCE 30 will be a 2v2 tournament, whereby each player must partner up with a player that is NOT in the same clan (or hasn't been for at least 3 months). Please note that there will be NO group stages, as they drag out tournaments too much. Instead, it’ll be a simple knockout format (eg. Single or Double Elimination). Mappool and further rules to follow.
If you are interested in signing up, please write a comment below:
• If wanting to sign up with a pre-selected partner, write “in" followed by your partner's name - and that player must do the same, followed by your name.
• If wanting to sign up and be randomly assigned a partner, write “in with random player".
The signup deadline is 20 July 2019!
EDIT: Signups are now closed - 16 players. :) - Anyone else who signs up will be considered a RESERVE.
And what a JDC this has been, with A7med snagging the title off Jety, who has comfortably won JDC for three consecutive seasons. Will A7med be able to hold his title as long as Jety? But without further ado, we present to you the awards for JDC season 29!

It is important to note that JDC 30 is definitely going to see a significant overhaul with major changes to how scoring will work. In the mean-time, we would appreciate it if you could leave some feedback (if any) on this newspost!
I would like to take this opportunity to add that we thank everyone who participated and also to those who helped organise this season, making it one of the best seasons in recent years.
I've (re-)deployed a fix for some scoring issues that have been plaguing this season. Some of you have gained some points you should have received but didn't, but overall standings are the same.
Apologies for the delay with this fix; I've had very limited internet access over the past few weeks. Please let me know in the comments if there are any lingering issues.
PS: This fix supersedes one that was announced a few hours ago. This should be of particular interest to Jety, who replied to that one with a further bug report that is hopefully addressed with this fix as well.
Edit: I've fixed a further issue that resulted in some more points being lost (thanks for the report, Jety). Again this does not change the rankings (of the top 10 at the least) but it does give some of you more points.
And so begins the final round of JDC 29! It's worth a few more points than normal.
Don't forget to join us for our crime and punishment event tonight!
I've decided to delay the Pestilence event until tomorrow evening (20:00 CET) as I have been informed that both the NT game Egypt vs Serbia and the JJ2 Shots Fired live speedrun are both coinciding with the original timing of the event (21:00 CET).
A spont event will be organised tonight in its place at an earlier time, so stay tuned for details!
JDC Round 2 has begun - expect a few changes to scoring this time around! Congratulations to A7med for winning Round 1.
We have been informed of some bugs regarding the scoring in Round 1, and these will be fixed retrospectively as soon as we discover the cause, so don't worry about your points if they seem wrong.
Also, don't forget to join us for our Capture the Flag event tonight! Challenge of the Round & Assassination scores to follow shortly...
The spontaneous ground force event is over, and now everyone is officially free to start playing matches for JDC!
In JDC 29, we now award bonus points for playing with unique team-mates in your team-games. In combination with this new addition, this week's challenge of the round will be to play with at least 5 unique teammates this round.
Stay tuned for the hLRS opening event tomorrow!
The planned opening event has been pushed back until Sunday as unfortunately I’m not able to make it tonight. However, there will be a spont event tonight in its place, so stay tuned!
