    ################################################## ###########################################
    Hello everyone, I come here to present you with a bit of an event I've been planning for a while now. I've noticed there are no real combat events in GMod and I thought I'd give it a shot here.

    Almost There Engineering ACF 40 ton Armor Challenge

    The Almost There Engineering ACF 40 ton Armor Challenge is a tournament we have been working on
    to pit builders from various servers and their tanks against each other in combat. All battles will take place in the Almost There Engineering server using standard ACF.

    Server's IP: 68.235.84.10:27015

    ################################################## ############################################

    The battles will be fought in a 1v1 basis and matched in the ladder at random. Each combatant may subscribe a single tank in each of the two
    categories. To enter the tournament just make a post with your Steam username,the name of the tank(s),its weight and armament, for each category and two pictures of the tank(s) being used. One frontal and one side shot.

    Subscriptions are open until July 13th, after that date battles will be set a date and no more entrys will be accepted

    Subscription Format

    -Steam Name
    -Tank(s),their category,weight and armament (One line for each)
    -Links or thumbnails for the pictures of each tank (No full picures in the thread please.)

    Example:

    -K IV Front www.examplelink.com/4343 Side www.examplelink.com/4343


    The winner of each category will recieve a reward consisting of a Steam game of their choice under or equal to
    -$10 if the number of contestants is 8 or less.
    -$20 if th enumber is a above 8
    -$30 if we get more than 14 tankers participating in that category.

    I might be up for this, but I'd have to build a tank first.

    i don't think i'm going to enter- I just don't have the time really, and I don't want people to be discouraged from joining the tournament (I don't mean to seem snooty/arrogant)

    Would you consider 40.1t or 40.999t as the limit?

    40.0t rounded preferably but an extra kilogram or two won't hurt.

    Who knows. I cant even get my browsers (IE, Firefox, and Chrome) to allow the login fields to work correctly. Only way I'm logged in on this one is cuz of cookies.

    I've been meaning to make a 40 ton, as normally all my stuff is just superlight so this works out well.
    By "footprint" do you mean total hullsize or base hull size? Like does that include tracks?

    Heh, all this newfangled ACF...
    I don't think I can convert my Maus directly to it, but I'll see about making a tank destroyer for this, maybe JagdTiger or JagdPanther styled.

    I'm saving that for the Land Battleships ;)
    But no, I'm making stuff to scale now, still kinda large though, but nowhere near as big as what I used to do.

    Those who wish to enter the competition add me on steam after leaving your entry here, it should make it easier to organize the battles that way. My username is :3 Wolf

    Also would anyone have any issues if I enter myself seeing as I'm the one organizing the competition?
