June Cygnus Pizza Race Tournament

For beings just joining us, let’s go over the rules:

  • Post below or contact us on twitter to sign up
  • Share the track list below so that everyone can vote on tracks for the racers to compete on. They will be run in the order of votes . 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place tracks will be run in that order , etc.
  • You can start submitting qualifier times as early as June 14th
  • There will be a kick off stream on Saturday morning that will open the challenge. At that point, just go into Settings → Reset Track Times, as it’ll be easier to collect your track times.
  • Race those tracks all you want , and get those great race times! Make sure to screenshot your times.
  • Post your best times for the tracks to twitter/this thread. At least to one of these for it to count!
  • FINAL TIMES FOR ALL TRACKS must be posted by Sunday Morning, 10am Eastern Time.
  • The FINALISTS will be contacted to arrange a costream Sunday (at a mutually good time), and then the final race is a head-to-head costream, best out of 5 … on the brand new track!
  • Due to the odd number of entrants, the top 8 times on the qualifying track 14 will go to the semifinals to race in the bracketed competition.

What good is a contest without prizes?

Well, here’s what you’re competing for!

  • Every official contestant gets stickers only available to tourney racers.
  • The winner gets an official Cygnus Pizza Race hat, as seen in game (and not for sale), an in-game decal for their ship (of their own graphic), a pizza, and automatic entry into the Tournament of Champions where they will compete for a paid voice role in Smugglers of Cygnus .

Let’s meet the tracks!

Level 1 , the CPF Single Topping. A simple and fast oval race track:

Level 2 , Solaxis Track 1. This is a winding track through the sunny sands with a few popups and curves:
image

Level 3 , Klaatu Omega Track 1. The harsh light of the gas giant casts a blue light on this winding and technical track:

Level 4 , CPF Mega with Everything. A super tight track inside the hangar bay of a ship of the mammoth pizza delivery fleet:

Level 5 , Solaxis Track 2. Back to Solaxis for a race across red sands with long straightaways for very high speeds and a few tight turns to keep you on your toes:
image

Level 6 , Solaxis Track 3. Winding, complicated curves interspersed with breakneak straightaways make a track where one mistake can make or break your race:
image

Level 7 , Klaatu Omega Track 2. Hairpin turns and elevation changes require precision control of the turbo and airbrakes:
image

Level 8 , Solaxis Track 4. The lead you build in the corkscrew can be lost in a moment on the tight switchback climb to the summit:
image

Level 9 , the Mathesar Belt. Dodging asteroids and attempting to collect toppings in the cockpit of the fastest ship in the Cygnus Pizza Delivery Fleet is a huge challenge, and a moment’s lapse can result in a humiliating 50 point run:
image

Level 10 , the dreaded Proteinosphere. Designed as a test track for handling and performance, this track barely clings to the surface of an asteroid and requires absolute concentration and mastery to cross the line with even one topping:
image

Level 11 , Polaris Track 1. The first exciting track of Season 2, this is a high-speed dash through a snowy landscape with a few light curves and one extreme hairpin where races are won or lost:
image

Level 12, Polaris Track 2. The qualifying track for the April tournament and the second track of Season 2, this arcade-inspired track has a shortcut, a jump, and some pretty rough surprises in store for the unwary! Proceed with caution and all speed!

Level 13, Vulcan. The final track of the April tourney, this race track is all about timing and awareness. Racing on a live volcano on a newly formed planet is too hot for most!

Level 14, Luminos Station. This is this month’s qualifying track on the beautiful but very popular luxury station orbiting the beautiful vacation planet Luminos, in the stunning Vita System.

This month, we have three MCs in the Winner’s Circle:
racer portrait
HourADayGamer has retired to the wealth and prestige of the intergalactic sports commentator circuit after his two back-to-back wins. He’ll be back for the Tournament of Champions, but don’t worry, I’m sure he will post his insight (and track times) to inspire the other racers this month. As a retired champion, he was in a position to help refine the track and help us prepare it for the big event.
Catch his streams on twitch!

Indiana Crohns, the man who doesn’t know the meaning of the word quit. He took the tracks by storm in the April tourney, with a fiery win on track 13. He will be back to claim the ultimate prize in the Tournament of Champions - but don’t worry, he will also share his encouragement, critiques, and phenomenal track times with this month’s racers!
Come hang out and see his amazing plague doctor masks on Twitch

Purple Thiccmin is an indie variety streamer and speedrunner with a penchant for precision and a hunger for victory that was barely appeased when he planted @GardenOfIndie on May’s Track 14. Sure to have plenty of tips for fellow racers this month!

Now once again, it’s time to MEET THE RACERS!

First, the veterans:

racer portrait
GardenOfIndie is no stranger to intense racing! After dismissing the famed Proteinosphere as too easy and obliterating some of Season 1’s best tracks, he decided that it was time for a real challenge. Armed only with precision and a feline chewbacca, he’s going all the way. Only three people have a gold trophy on the dreaded track 10, and two of them are in the Winner’s Circle. Is there anything else these racers will have in common soon?

Cardboard Tier is a dog-loving beard enthusiast with huge streaming skills and excellent race form. He put in great times last month, but now he’s done taking it easy on the other racers, and he’s ready to put the smack down. When it comes to racing, his tier is epic.
Check him out on Twitch!

Cronos Stampede is nothing if not a fighter, and he’ll be bringing his fighting spirit, indomitable flair, and quite possibly his beach wear back this month in his pursuit for delivery domination. He’s a loud voice for equality, and will be happy to leave everyone equally in his wake as he races to victory. And a cunning hat.

Lizardjam is determined to show off how fast he can go! Not a man of many words he tends to fly under the radar, but you know what they say about the quiet ones. Watch out, or he may just fly right past you! (Disclaimer- Lizardjam is not edible and prefers not to be used as a topping.)

Supherbyus runs a great indie stream with a big mix of styles, but don’t mistake his taking it easy for complacency… the last person who did that is still stuck behind a sabotage on track 10! Supherbyus is here to drink coffee and win pizza, and he’s brought two coffees.

TheLamppostGaming is the light at the end of the track! He’s so fast, he’s been known to hand over the controls to his daughter mid-race to give others an even chance. That all ends once the tournament starts, he’ll be taking no prisoners. Don’t worry if you can’t keep up, he’ll keep the light on for you in the winner’s circle.

L1L F3LL4 is part wyvern, part man, part myth, and all speed. Tireless in his promotion of his fellow indies, he and his wife form an amazing team chasing the ultimate glory: the Cygnus Pizza hat. Will they take home the prize, or have to buy their own pizza?
Watch them on Twitch to see!
