This is just the post for another cup, but at the same time it promizes Elite League 9 to happen some time soon and I will host it. To try out some more rules for League this cup has everything like last cup but with vetos now.

Link to the Participants in this cup:
Brackets Links:

Short "What to do?" Summary for the lazy People:
- you tell me by DM or post here that you want to join
- I'll add you to the list of players
- you check in 60 to 15 min before the cup (tell me in discord or steam that you will actually be there or how late you will be)
- I'll make and post brackets from 15 min to 0 min before the cup
- you find your oponent and make a lobby for the BO3 series and start esl
- you roll the map in discord (all maps are rolled)
- may veto the map
- after noticing who is top in the bracket, you flip a coin in discord
- in case of heads, the player on top has to pick and tell race, he can change his hero in secret at any time before the match starts
- the other player picks and tells a hero knowing the race
- may veto the hero
- stomp, chop, shoot
- looser of the last game can decide who has to pick race and who has to pick hero after
- if you win a BO3 you go to the next round, if you loose you go to loosers bracket and advance with BO1s or drop out to finally watch some stream in peace

1. When does it start?
Date: Saturday May 27th 2023
Time: 15:00 UTC
Convert to your timezone here >>>

2. Who can join?
Anyone can join regardless of skill level.

3. What is the format?
Victory Point Control: 500 VPs
Starting Location: Random
Resources: Standard
- The tournament will be played in the 1 v 1 double elimination format.
- The tournament will be played on the current patch at the day of the cup.
- BO3 in winners bracket, BO1 in losers bracket
- rules for grand finle: Player from winners gets one game advantage. It starts 1/0. Therefore looser can decide who picks first in the first game wich is g2.

4. When does a game count?
- The organizer will be present to help in case of the trouble so contact the organizer asap if there is any trouble.
1/ Both players have to use the ESL Reporter (or save the replay and agree that this was the game in question, replay save and share is mandatory if you have an esl block active - looking at you Inekura and Bloodra1N!).
2/ Both players type L within the first minute. If an admin is present then 1 player typing L is enough.
3/ Players should contact each other and host the room.
- Organizing is done at "event-chat" channel of DoWII: Elite Mod Community Discord.
4/ It is the duty of the hosting player to contact the organizer regarding scores after all sets of a match conclude in order to make the brackets proceed.
5/ There is a possibility no referees are available so I expect each player to know the rules by his or her heart.
6/ It would be great if observer slots can help out players in game lobby in regards to rules.

5. Maps & hero picks.
- !rolltourney in Discord "map-and-coin roller"-channel to get the map (all games unless players just agree on one)
- any map can only be played once per match
- !flip in Discord "map-and-coin roller"-channel
- map vetos may be placed after a map is rolled
- all races and heroes including random are available
- in case of heads the top bracket player starts with picking a race, in case of tails the bottom player starts
- the one who starts, picks a race (not a hero) and announces it in the in game chat
- the one who follows picks a hero for himself and announces it in the in game chat
- the first player can then veto the hero and change his hero in secret
- Random can't be vetoed
- while map veto is permanent, hero veto only lasts one map and can only be used as first pick
- overall one hero and map veto per player and match
- who ever lost the last game can decide who picks first (race) and who second (hero) in the next one
- any hero can only be played once per match and player
- no bans on heroes or maps

6. Punishment for Disconnections/Tardiness/Toxicity (what is wrong with you guys? smh)
- Both players may agree on a rematch
- If they don't, the default would be a loss for the offender
- The offender only gets a rematch then, if he was ahead by the standards of a referee
- If there is no referee available, the offender was ahead if he lost 20% less VP's than his opponent
- When the organizer or the referee deems there are too many rematches to the point it is delaying the tournament severely, a special rule is introduced to speed up the progress. The offender loses disconnected/dropped game. ESL reporter replays are used as a proof.

- In case of tardiness, the organizer awaits for the player as long as possible until the point is reached when awaiting further will result in delaying the progress of the tournament. If the offender does not arrive before reaching that point of no return, he or she is eliminated from the tournament or replaced by a backup.

- you get a warning when you overdo it. If you don't pull it together after that or are totally out of line with the first offence, you may be banned

Calderis Desert
Calderis Refinery
Fedrid Folly
Fortuna Sanctum
Green Tooth Gorge

Gerneral disclaimer:
- The organizer (I, FuFu) has the right to alter any rules during the tournament to adapt to various needs that arise.

Thank you for hosting Fufu !! <3

Maybe take the idea to let div B enter div A at some points. would be exciting!
Div B was a tad too big IMO.

Nice to have you organizing, streaming & casting FuFu
