- Above link is the starting time and the event is 10 hours long. As long as you can arrive within 10 hours, you are not required to attend at the starting time. No need to stay until the end either.

2. Sign Up Procedure
1/ Player
- Leave comments below for sign up. Should include following.
1) Steam ID
2) Faction Choice
2.1) Primary Faction
- If I don’t play this faction on the event day, I will die. I must play this faction or this event is worthless for me level of dedication. You can choose only one.
- Note that Grey Knights, Chaos, Space Marines are very popular choices and if you sign up for them, there is a very big chance that you won’t get to play them.
2.2) Secondary Factions
- I can play these factions but I don’t want to play them on the day if it can be helped. You can choose multiple factions as long as they meet requirements.
3) Time Limitation
- The faction war can last up to 10 hours after the start.
- The standard time for players to leave is after playing 2 consecutive Best of 5.
- Players can stay longer after 2 consecutive Best of 5 if they wish to.
- If you do not include below information in the sign up post, I will assume that you are available at the start and is able to play at least two consecutive best of 5 before you leave.
3.1) Arriving Late
- It is possible to join in the middle or at the end rather than at the start if you have time limitations. You can write this down in the sign up post so that the organizer takes it into account when assigning you into a team.
3.2) Leaving early
- It is also possible to leave after a single best of 5. In case you have to leave after a certain period of time, include that information on the sign up post. However, even when leaving early, you should at least have time enough for a single best of 5 with full 5 games. If you think you do not have time required for a single best of 5 with full 5 games, you should not sign up.
Sample
Impregnable

Secondary Factions: SM, Chaos, Orks


Player Requirements
- Each player is required to have at least one of below requirements met to be able to sign up.
1) Minimum 500 Steam play hours in retribution/elite mod
- Steam hours used here should be an approximate value excluding time spent in idling, observing, bashing AI, The Last Stand and Campaign.
2) Testimony for your skill from an expert player
- Ask that guy to give me a Steam message.
- List of such players can be found here. >>> viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2759
3) Getting a direct invite from the organizer
- It is possible to be invited into the event by the organizer while the event is still ongoing in order to fill up vacancies.

2/ Streamer
- Make a post below with your
1) Steam ID
2) Stream link
Sample
I want to be a streamer
Swiftsabre
https://www.twitch.tv/swiftsabre


3. What to do on the day of the event
1/ Be present in the Steam Group Chat of the MRT steam group
- Group Name: DoW II Elite Monthly Rumble tournament!
- Group Link: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/dow2emrt
- In order to enter group chat, simply visit the link above and hit "Enter chat room" through a logged in Steam account.
- Do not turn off group chat because major announcements will be made there such as which room to enter.

2/ Follow game host's instructions
- He or she will personally contact you through Steam. You need to be in group chat in order for this process to work.
- The host for each room will be announced on the group chat.

3/ When you are appointed as a host
- Hosts have to do below things according to organizers' instructions.
1/ Gather players through group chat
- Contact players directly through MRT group chat.
- What I mean by directly contacting players is to actually directly send Steam messages to them and not just announce their IDs in the group chat.
- In the group chat's right side panel, there is a list of players inside the group chat. Right next to their Steam IDs, there is a small downward pointing icon. Clicking on in gives you various options and one of the options is to send direct message to them. This can be done even if they are not your Steam friend.
- Report to the organizer immediately when players are missing.

2/ Keep rules
- Compared to the tourney, faction war rules are extremely simple. Have a brief look at it on the sign up page.

3/ Inform the organizer about team balance
- Since the organizer cannot be in every single game. He has to rely on host's observation on balance of teams. Cast worthy games cannot be made if teams are too unbalanced.

4/ Save all replays and label them.
- This is the most important duty because the main purpose of Faction Wars is to attain replays for casting by Youtube casters.
- All replays should be saved and labeled like below.
Orks vs SM game 1
Orks vs SM game 2
Orks vs SM game 3

- Over 22 minutes replays should be highlighted like below.
(Orks vs SM game 4 - Over 22 Minutes)

- Labeling can be either done by naming the replay when saving the replay at the score screen or by renaming names of files in playback folder.
- Replays files are located at playback folder which can be reached by following below route.
(users -> my document -> my games -> retribution -> playback)

- If you happen to crash at the end of the game and is unable to save the replay manually, the replay file of the last game you played can be recovered by renaming temp.rec file located in playback folder.
(temp.rec -> Orks vs SM game 5.rec)

4. General Info & Rules
1/ Team Balancing
- Teams can be balanced by the organizer or the streamer anytime during the match up. They will listen to what players have to say when changing though.
- The organizer gives priority to 1st Dedicated Player, 2nd Top Player, 3rd Recommended Player by Top or Dedicated Player, 4th Newly Joined Player. The list of Top and Dedicated Players can be found here. >>> viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2759

2/ Game Format
2.9.5.1 Patch
3 VS 3
Victory Point Control: 500 VPs
Starting Location: Random
Resources: Standard

3/ Number of matches
- Depends on the number of people that I can get for each faction but usually can do up to 3 simultaneous match ups.
- All matches are best of 5 but can do best of 3 in case players have to leave early.
- Concede is allowed.
- Can change the number of match ups and games played when there is more or less time available.

4/ Map Selection & Hero picks
- First map of each series will be played on Estia Province.
- After that losing team of previous match will pick a map out of below list of maps.
- Same map cannot be played twice within a series.
- Maps that are variants of other maps like Argus Desert Gate and Garvus Ice Gate are considered to be one map.
- There is no rule for hero selection but OM/GK is regarded as a separate faction from SM.

Map Pool
Argus Desert Gate
Calderis Refinery / Other versions
Estia Province
Capital Spire Redux
Judgment of Carrion
Graesark Undercity
Typhon Arena / Other versions
Meridian High City
Kathari Ruins
Death World Temple
Wrath of Baal
Siccaris Plateau Redux
White Walls of Calderis
Kasyr Ruthien Redux
Khatrin Purification Plant
Angstrom Heights

5/ House Rule
- Other rules can be introduced on the day.

5. Disconnections/Sound Bugs
- In case of disconnections, that match will be played again if it is within the 15 minutes of start on the same map and members. If it is past 15 minutes into the game, the match will continue but I will make sure the casters know who got disconnected.
- If a player suffers consecutive Sound Bugs despite turning their Steam off and on after the first one, the organizer will remove that player from the event.
