Urgent Fury Dust for Starhawk Exclusively on PlayStation 3

On May 14th, 2012, we will kick-off the first round of “Urgent Fury Dustâ€. Dust is a series of six tournament events designed to prepare your clan for our Signature TacMap Tournament that will be revealed later this summer. Urgent Fury Dust will focus on 8-vs-8 matches that introduce your clan to our level of competitive but friendly sportsmanship; in fact, our motto is “Win with Honor, Lose with Dignityâ€. Who wants to play with cyber bullies, cheaters, or trash talkers? Certainly not us! We monitor clans to make sure they’re playing with respect for all players (even the people on their own team)





 
Each event, known as a deployment, will consist of eight matches carried over a two week period, and since we understand that some nights are better for some we have broken the war nights into two divisions to provide all clans with flexibility.
 
Alpha Division will run Monday through Thursday at 9 pm central standard time and the Bravo Division will run Wednesday through Saturday at 9 pm central standard time. Below is the full schedule.
 

Alpha Deployments – Monday – Thursday 9 pm central standard time
May 14 – 17 and May 21 – 24
June 11 – 14 and June 18 – 21
July 9 – July 12 and July 16 – July 19

[*]Bravo Deployments – Wednesday – Saturday 9 pm central Standard Time

May 30 – June 2 and June 6 – June 9
June 27 – June 30 and July 5 – July 8 (Matches adjusted for July 4th)
July 25 – July 28 and August 1 – August 4


The winner of each deployment will gain one of 24 slots into the upcoming TacMap Tournament.
 
Here is a few FAQ’s about the Tournament, additional questions can be posted in the Starhawk Forum:
 

Can my clan compete in more than one Deployment?
Yes, you can compete in as many deployments as your clan wishes

[*]What if a clan wins more than one deployment?

We realize this is very realistic, if it happens, the next highest ranked team will get the slot for the TacMap Tournament. So if Clan A wins the first and second deployments, then the 2nd place winner of the second deployment will get the spot

[*]What is the cost for entering the tournament?

Entry is absolutely free

[*]Do I have to be a resident in North America to participate?

No we welcome members from all territories, but members should realize the match times may be a little rough. We are exploring additional regions, if you would like to have specific support for your region please see this post.

[*]What if my clan does not win any of the deployments, do we still have a chance to get into the TacMap Tournament?

YES, we will hand pick clans that have shown that they can “Win with Honor and Lose with Dignity†to fill the other 18 slots.

[*]When can our clan sign up?

Right now, head over to UFGL and create your clan today. Remember all members of your team must sign up for Urgent Fury to compete in the Tournaments.
Once you have the minimum of 8 members on your roster then you need to Join one of the Deployments by visiting the Starhawk League Section

Urgent Fury welcomes StarHawk

In the past seven years Urgent Fury has used Socom as its staple in tournament design, later games like Call of Duty and other shooters have seen their acceptance into the community. But early last year we caught word of a new third person shooter coming to the scene. Now we have never strayed that far from the military path in shooters but this one takes us to the final frontier.
 
Urgent Fury is proud to welcome StarHawk to our 2012 tournament season. The Starhawk universe is set in the distant future, out in the far reaches of space where factions battle over a rare and dangerous resource known as Rift Energy. In this galaxy, colonies of humans, called Rifters, explore a scattering of planets, known as the Frontier, in attempt to mine this energy to make an honest living, but find their way of life threatened by the Outcast, a ruthless species of humans who have mutated into psychotic monsters due to exposure to this very same Rift Energy.
 
Starhawk’s features a host of weaponry and a multitude of vehicles for high-speed, extreme combat combined with intense vehicular warfare on both land and air. The game’s innovative Build & Battle system lets players alter the moment to moment action by giving them the ability to change the dynamic of the battlefield instantly with a selection of base structures at their disposal, all while in the midst of the fight. By the touch of a button players can violently deploy a number of buildings, vehicles, or artillery to strategically complete mission objectives and defeat enemies. Through the sophisticated architecture of the PS3 system, the instantaneous customization that Build & Battle provides, as well as the breadth of game play that spans multiple modes, is made possible.
 
With the release scheduled for May 8th, 2012, expect this summer to ignite with intense battles as Urgent Fury seeks to find the 2012 Championship Clan. Does your clan have what it takes? Well get started by introducing your clan to our community by clicking here.

    AAPG Boot Camp Season 2 Registration Now Open

    After feedback from Season 1 we have adjusted how Season 2 will play. We have increased the match size to 7 v 7 and roster size to 32 players. One of the biggest changes will be the best of 3 matches. Many of our players have asked for this so here we go.
    We are going to limit the teams to 24 with divisions of 6 to shorten the length of the league schedule. We will continue with the Sunday - Tuesday Schedule at 9pm central.
    All of this is to eventually build up to a TacMap Tournament. We are getting everyone used to long schedules, so when you are recruiting be sure to talk about the need to endure through a schedule with several weeks.

    Urgent Fury welcomes Patrick "Commander Fury" Gross back as Media Director and Co-Owner.

    Patrick's first tenure with the popular tournament community began in 2006, and lasted until 2012, when he left to create Battle Chatter Online with his colleague and friend Bill Lavoy (now of Prima Games).
    In September of 2013, he joined the development team at SOF Studios where he served as UI & Audio Designer for the "H-Hour: World's Elite" proof of concept demo. Upon completion of the demo, he was approached by Urgent Fury with an offer to return and decided it was time for a homecoming.
    Once again, he will oversee all branches of media including audio, visual, & social media. And says he has a desire to expand Urgent Fury's current model. "I think that it's no secret that Urgent Fury has struggled with its identity over the last few years…mainly because the industry has changed & evolved so rapidly. But I'm confident that we know what we need to do to adapt, and what we need to do to be sure that Urgent Fury is in step with the industry".
    He also says he plans on resuming production of the community favorite podcast Urgent Frequency. "UFreq was such a huge part of what I did here at Urgent Fury, and I have every intention of making sure that's still the case moving forward. In fact, the plan is to expand the amount of media content overall".
    Urgent Fury CIO Shane Bell says he's excited about Patrick's return. "He was the very first staff member at Urgent Fury, Patrick is Urgent Fury. He understands how the community was built from the ground up and what direction we need to be heading. As our newest Director and Co-Owner, he will have full creative control with where we are taking “UF�. Not only with regard to our tournament events, but Urgent Fury as a whole. We cannot begin to express our excitement with what the future holds".
