Proving Grounds October Tournament

Postby An'grathul » Mon 13 Aug, 2018 3:15 pm

----Elite mod Proving Grounds beginner tournament (Vol. IV)----

With Elite league in full swing and several of our top players engaged in glorious combat, it’s only fitting that we also bring the fight to the newer arrivals in Elite mod. Gird yourselves for battle; the time has come for the fourth instalment of the Proving Grounds beginner tournament!

Experience has taught us that we’ve hit a sweet spot with a 400 hours played limit for contestants. To remain fair and inclusive enough players below 800 hours that think themselves suited to the level of play can always PM and we'll have a look in-game. The format of the contest will be Bo3 with a Bo5 finals and a loser's bracket finals for third place. Although there are no limitations on how often you can play a commander in a single set, each player has a single commander veto for one round.
In case of a large player pool with a wider range of interested skill levels, there might be a more extensive bracket system with separate brackets for ‘true’ beginners and a bracket for more mid-tier players.

When will it take place?

We’re aiming for the weekend of October 13th.
The tournament will start at 19:00 CEST, also depending on the amount of players.

Sign me up!

That's the spirit. If you're interested there's a few things you should do.
-Post your steam name in this post, along with three commanders you want to play in the tournament.

-Add An'grathul on steam to give me a head's up.

-Preferably, join us on the Discord https://discord.gg/2YZxrDJ so you can join the many practice sessions we host.

EXAMPLE:

Player: An'grathul
Heroes: Warlock, Farseer, Sorceror

Much like last time I hope to see many beginners called to battle! Along with the Proving grounds Discord I'll also host unofficial prelims to get some matches in and test the waters. If any casters are interested, your patronage would be appreciated.

IN SHORT

Date: October 13th
Time: Start at 18:00/19:00 CEST

Map pool:
Calderis Refinery
Pale Tooth Gorge
Green Tooth Jungle redux fixed
Fedrid Folly
Leviathan Hive
Outer Reaches
Jarilo’s Forge
Vulcan Pits

Yikes
The internal battery has run dry, the game can now be played. However, clock based events will no longer occur.

Just posting a quick note to state that the time for new sign-ups is now over! If you still wish to participate it will probably be in a backup spot in case another opponent drops out, feel free to contact me.

Sorry but I need to withdraw from the tournament. Unfortunately duty calls and I have to go be a weekend warrior this weekend. It would have been easy wins for people anyways since I haven't been able to practice. But thanks for the opportunity! I will take my laptop with me in the hopes I can play but if not I hope you understand. Thanks again and happy purging!
