The F1 Climaxxx will be returning for its second edition to kick off FWA action in 2024. This announcement is to give you all the important information about the selection process for the participants.

Qualification.

This year, there will be eight competitors (with eight different handlers) in the F1 Climaxxx. They will be divided into two pools of four for the competition (more on format later).

Like last year, grade averages will be used to determine the entrants. We are going to use a grading period from Lights Out (the next show, hence this announcement) to Winter Wasteland, including those two pay-per-views and the three television cycles between. A character needs at least two promos to be eligible to qualify for the F1. Unlike last year, there is no automatic spot for champions in this year’s tournament. Only mod grades will be counted towards the average (we will discount any non-mod tiebreakers used for this purpose).

After Winter Wasteland, we will contact the eight handlers with highest grade averages to invite them to the tournament. They will have forty eight hours to reply. If they decline the invitation, the next highest grade average will be invited, and so on until the eight spots are filled.

If a handler has two characters in qualifying spots, they can choose which one they want to enter (if any).

Any champions that chooses to enter would be double-booked at the Untitled PPV and the Grand March only (if they make the final).

Format.

As mentioned, there will be two pools in the tournament: Pool A and Pool B. Both pools will feature four competitors. The pools will be randomly drawn from the eight qualifiers, as they were last year.

Each pool will be a round robin where each character faces all the other characters in singles matches. Two points will be awarded for a win, one for a draw, and zero for a loss. Ties at the end of the pool stage will be decided first by head-to-head record (or mini-league system in the case of a three-way tie) and then, if still unbroken, by grade average. In kayfabe, if the grade average tie breaker is used, this will be explained by a bonus match on Night 3 of the tournament.

The winner of each pool qualifies automatically for the semi-final stage. 2nd and 3rd from each stage will qualify for the ‘wildcard round’. This means that it is highly likely that every match will still matter on Night 3, the final round of matches in the pool stage, which takes place on the Untitled PPV. In the wildcard round, 2nd of Pool A faces 3rd of Pool B (and vice versa), with the winners of these matches progressing to the semi-finals alongside the pool winners. From there, it’s a straight forward knockout tournament.

Dates.

Lights Out 3 (8th Oct 2023) until Winter Wasteland (17th Dec 2023) - grade averages qualification period (see above).

A Very Crossfire Christmas (7th Jan 2024, Beijing): Press Conference.

Meltdown XXXVII (18th Jan 2024, Hanoi): Night One (Pool Stage).
Meltdown XXXVIII (1st Feb 2024, Seoul): Night Two (Pool Stage).
Untitled PPV (25th Feb 2024, Tokyo): Night Three (Pool Stage).

Meltdown XXXIX (7th Mar 2024, Osaka): Night Four (Wildcard Round).
Meltdown XL (21st Mar 2024, Anchorage): Night Five (Semi-Finals).
Meltdown XLI (4th April 2024, Seattle): hype segments hype.

The Grand March (28th April 2024, San Francisco): Night Six (Final).

Prize.

The reward for winning this year’s war of attrition is a shot at any championship of the winner’s choosing at the Carnal Contendership event.

Naming.

The F1 will be named for the year that the final match took place. Therefore, the first edition was the F1 Climaxxx 2023 (despite some of the tournament taking place in 2022). This one will be the F1 Climaxxx 2024.

Good luck!

F1 Climaxxx '24 Qualification Update.
Grade rankings: top sixteen.


Below are the current grade average rankings, as of Meltdown XXXVI and Fallout 036, for the F1 qualification period. There is one event to go in that period: Winter Wasteland on 31st December (promo deadline 17th December).

Information on this qualification period (as well as the tournament in general) is in the post above.

Several characters are listed here but with a [*U] for unranked. This is either because:
  • The character only has one promo in the qualification period.
  • It is the second character listed for that handler.
  • The character is currently absent from FWA television.
Which of these reasons applies should be obvious from context.

This is revealed here to give everyone an even playing field going into Winter Wasteland, in that you now know where you stand and can think about whether you’d want to enter the F1 or not in the event you qualify.

[*U] Randy Ramon: 33.900 [1 rp]
[*U] Violet Dreyer: 33.480 [1 rp]
[01] Alyster Black: 33.365 [2 rp]
[02] Bryan Bastard: 33.180 [3 rp]
[03] Chris Peacock: 33.175 [2 rp]
[04] Chris Crowe: 32.715 [4 rp]

Due to a change in his work schedule, Jam is unfortunately now unable to compete in this year's F1 Climaxxx.

His spot in the tournament has gone to the next person on the grades average list, that being.... Xperienx SilenX!!

It's a straight swap in both the pools and the fixtures, which now look like this...
