Wumpa Classic Championship 2 is a Crash Bandicoot themed tournament that was held in mid 2020. The tournament like its predecessor, Wumpa Classic Championship, focuses less on races being edited and uploaded to YouTube, and instead makes streaming mandatory to enter. The tournament is hosted by 'The Crash Team', which is not an individual but a collaboration of various peoples; including Kolapro, Cotote and DessertMonkeyJK.

Progress

  • The tournament was announced by Cotote via a trailer video on June 26, 2020.
    • Sign up video has been posted and competitors have registered for the tournament.
  • Round 1 started on July 7th, 2020 and ended on July 30th, 2020 with all matches done.
  • Round 2 started on August 1st, 2020 and ended on August 19th, 2020.
  • Quarter-Finals started on August 20th and planned to end on September 6th, 2020.
  • Semi-Finals and 2nd place face-off started on September 9th and ended on September 17th, 2020.
  • Grand-Finals took place from September 26 to September 30, 2020.

Special Rules

The tournament will be following the General Rule Set unless specified otherwise.

Method of Play

Competitors may play the games by the following methods.

  • A PS1
  • A PS2 with slow disc speed (as opposed to fast disc speed)
  • ePSXe versions 1.8, 1.9 and 2.0.0
  • Mednafen and PCSXR

All other methods of play are banned. Accidentally playing with the wrong method will result in a draw time penalty. For using the wrong ePSXe version, the winner will incur a 20 second penalty per 10 minutes of the race. All of the other banned methods will incur a 1 minute penalty per 10 minutes of the race (timed when the first competitor finishes). If this penalty is enough for them to lose the race despite them finishing first, it will constitute a rematch, unless the other competitor is willing to declare themselves the loser.

Live Streaming

This is a livestream only tournament. Competitors are expected to be able to stream their game whilst competing, such as using the streaming feature on Discord. A dedicated set of users will be then restreaming competitor footage to the tournament's Twitch page. However, unlike the first WCC, whilst matches being restreamed is highly encouraged, it is not mandatory for all races to be restreamed.

If a race is not able to be restreamed, competitors must record their footage in some way while streaming (such as Twitch archiving past broadcasts). The recorded livestream must be edited after the race is completed, in order to be uploaded onto the YouTube channel.

The three options are as followed, in order of what is preferred:

  • If all competitors can use discord's stream function, and a restreamer is available, then they can stream on discord with the restreamer restreaming to twitch.
  • If there is no restreamer available but all competitors can both stream and record, then they can stream on discord and their videos are to be sent to an editor who can later edit the run
  • If there is no restreamer available and one or more competitors cannot both stream and record, then they can both stream onto twitch and spectators can use multitwitch to watch. The competitors must make sure to have twitch's archiving broadcasts option selected.

Mandatory games

The compulsory games for the tournament are the original trilogy Crash Bandicoot games for PS1. They take priority over all other Crash games. However, competitors may race each other in any Crash Bandicoot game, including any of the N. Sane Trilogy or Crash Nitro Fueled.

Round 1 goal rules

The recommended time for all Round 1 races are between 15-30 minutes. Competitors may check their goals with mods to see if they are within these parameters. If runners go ahead with a goal without checking first with a mod; the match may be declared void if the time of the race (when the first competitor finishes), is under 10 minutes, or over 45 minutes. If this occurs, a mod will give those competitors a new goal and they will have to race again with that goal.

Competitors must also make sure that their goal cannot result in a draw, which mainly happens when the goal is points based and there is no tie breaker rule that relies on a temporal factor. Competitors can check with a mod first to see if the race has a way of avoiding draws, but if they go through with the race without a tiebreaker and it ends as a draw, the race will have to be re-done and a mod will either add a tie breaker rule to the rematch or pick a new goal altogether for the competitors.

Draw Times

This tournament employs draw times for those who finish within a certain amount of time after a competitor who uses a "faster" way of playing the game. If a draw occurs, the match will have to be redone; Unless both competitors agree to ignore the draw times and declare one player the winner. Competitors are also allowed to create their own draw times if they wish at any time, both competitors will need to agree on this however.

Competitors are highly encouraged to Use the same method of play and version if possible, but these draw times are here for circumstances where it cannot be helped.

Unlike the previous WCC, there are no draw times due to method of play for the original trilogy, as both PSXfin and FDS are banned. FDS is only allowed if all competitors of a race are using it. EPSXE versions that are allowed are 1.8, 1.9 and 2.0.0, all others are banned. Mednafen is also allowed. For the N.Sane Trilogy, the draw time is unchanged since the original WCC.

  • All in italics is the slower way of playing and what the draw is given for.
  • All not listed combinations are deemed as equal and there is no draw time (Such as N.Sane PC SSD vs N.Sane Console)

0 - 15 Mins 20 seconds
15 - 30 Mins 35 seconds

Unlike the original WCC, If competitors choose to race English/European version with the Japanese versions, there are no official draw times, but competitors can still make up their own draw times. Racing between an English/European version with the Japanese version is highly discouraged. There are still draw times between NTSC-U and PAL versions, to assist those who only have access/want to play their region's consoles.
