Code Red Escape from Tarkov tournament format & rules
Each of the eight players competed for seven hours, after which they had up to one hour to sell all of their items to Dealers. After all of the items were sold, the number of Roubles each player earned is what determined the final placements, with the highest-earning streamer taking home the victory.
Players start on new (level 40) accounts with ₽1,000,000 (1M) Roubles, 1 Labs keycard, 1 Gamma container and 1 dogtags case.
All Dealers except Jaeger are unlocked by default. Player can unlock Jaeger during the event.
Players can PMC & Scav raid.
Players CANNOT do “Hatchling” raids.
Players CANNOT raid on Factory.
Players CANNOT buy and sell on “Flea Market”, but they can use the “Flea Market” menu for Dealers.
Dog tags value: ₽200,000 per tag (regardless of level)
Players cannot sell dog tags to Dealers. They must keep them.
Dog tags will be counted at the end of playtime (7pm PST). The number of dog tags will be multiplied by ₽200,000.
Dog tags’ value will be added to each players’ Roubles value.
For example, if a player sells all their items and has ₽10,000,000 (10M) Roubles, if they have 10 dog tags, it will be 10*₽200,000 = ₽2,000,000 (2M). Therefore, ₽10M + ₽2M = ₽12M Roubles.
