- Registration is open till the end of the 1st round - November 15th.
- First round starts on November 1st.
- Every round lasts for 10 days, overlapping the next round by 3 days. It is like 7 days, but you have 3 extra days just in case, in order to record the most successful demo.
- The 1st and last rounds will last for 14 days, and they overlap more with the next/previous round. The first round is long just to make sure nobody is late for registration. The last round is long in order to let everyone plan their time before the upcoming Christmas and New Year.
- Every round starts on Wednesday (except for the final one). Every round ends on Saturday (except for the 1st one).
- There will be a new anticheat engine based on iodfe.
- The point system will be same as in DFWC2014

And in order to heat up your excitement, here's a teaser movie for it. It consists of highlights from the past DFWCs and a sneak peek of the new DFWC2017 maps. It also features comments from well-known game streamers
This movie has 2 parts. The 1st part has a reminiscence of the past DFWCs. No complete runs, just highlights of some bright moments. The 2nd part has a sneak peek of the new maps to be played in 2017! Don't expect to see some secret routes though, because every map is flashed really shortly =)
Not all the demos from the past DFWCs are world records, and not all of them even were recorded during the corresponding competition. Some of them are top-2, others were recorded after the official DFWC, one demo was rejected from top-1 place because of a random OB. But anyway, I just wanted these demos to be in this movie because of the nice execution of some tricks in them.
I would like to thank everyone who helped me during the creation of this movie:
