Rules & Points

The following Rules & Points determine the parameters by which the tournament is held.


Please keep in mind that what counts is the spirit of the law, not its letter. If you find a tactic or interaction that is clearly broken and / or unintended, let us know. If you instead rely on it, be prepared that we may make a decision on the spot to prohibit its usage, or that it may even already be fixed by the start of the tournament.

The StarCore Team reserves the right to reject any submitted blueprint. If a blueprint is rejected, the team will have a limited amount of time to submit a replacement. If the replacement blueprint is rejected again, the team will have to compete without that ship.

Useful Tips

  • Test your build on a dedicated server! If you experience significant latency while controlling your ship (especially while taking fire), put a subgrid on it. Blame Keen. Use the "Invincible Subgrid" block if you don't want to spend points. Max 1 of these blocks per ship.

  • Use SHIFT + T to show the stats tracker while looking at a grid

  • Use SHIFT + R to ping an object to your team, courtesy of the TeamSpot mod.

  • Many mods have bindable keys for their functions. You can set them in the TextHudAPI's Enter -> F2 menu while ingame.

  • Use your numpad to quickly control shield shunting directions.
