Postby Eerie » Mon 01 Jul, 2013 7:13 pm

Monthly Rumble Tournament - General Rules

Dates & Starting Time
You can find the Date and starting time of each MRT in their registration threads
and on the Monthly Rumble tournament Steam group event page.

Tournament Sign Up
There will be a separate registration thread on the Elite Mod Forum section.

Be present in the Steam group chat of the MRT Steam group on the day of the tournament for as long as you are in the running. Be there at least 15 minutes before the tournaments starts. The sign ups will end two days before the start of the tournament. Your commander choices, as explained below, will be locked at this stage.

Prizes
A money prize is guaranteed for the winner of every edition.
Approximately €10-€20 depending on participants, tournament format, etc.
Any donations are welcome and much appreciated.

The actual prize pool will be shown in each MRT registration thread.

Tournament Rules
Host Settings:
Victory point control: 500 VPS
Random starting location
Standard resources

Commander Choices
A player must choose 3 commanders while registering to the tournament.
These 3 commanders are the only ones a players is allowed to use during the course of the tournament. The player in the top bracket will lock in his commander first for the first round. In the next game the player in the bottom of the bracket will lock into their commander first.

In the final game (game 3 or game 5 depending on the format, victory points left from all the previous games will be summarised and based on them, the player who had less victory points left will be choosing his commander first).

You may also enter as random instead of picking 3 commanders.
You will be locked into random for all your games then.

Maps
The first round of a match will always be a fixed map as shown in the brackets.
No map can be played more than once within a match. Each player will have the option to veto a single map during a match, excluding the first round map.

The rounds that follow will be "loser's choice".
The loser will pick a map.

The 1v1 Map Pool
  • Ashes of Typhon
  • Calderis Refinery
  • Fedrid Folly
  • Green Tooth Gorge
  • Ice Station Obelis
  • Judgment of Carrion
  • Leviathan Hive
  • Quest's Heresy
  • Siwal Frontier
  • Green Tooth Jungle Redux
  • Jarilo's Forge

Observers
No observers are allowed except for referees and/or streamers.

Results
Both players are responsible for contacting a referee and giving the correct results.
The confirmed results will be updated in the brackets.

MAKE SURE TO SAVE SCREEN SHOTS OF THE SCORE SCREENS IN ORDER TO COUNT THE VICTORY POINTS, SHOULD THE 3rd OR 5th GAME HAPPEN!

Replays
Replays have to be saved by both players. Should there be a dispute where neither player has saved the replay(s), the game(s) will have to be replayed.

The in game names of saved replay files should be preferably labelled as:
MRT#[number], P1 vs P2 RO[number], game[number]
Example: MRT#1 Eerie vs Dark Riku RO32 game1

The winner of the match is responsible for sending the replays to wisekw@gmail.com

Disconnections
When a game ends prematurely for whatever reason, two things can happen:
Either the players agree on a winner or agree to replay.
If the players don't come to an agreement a referee will make the decision for them after watching the replay. The referee's decision will be final and without discussion so the tournament can go on as smoothly as possible.

Additional Tournament Rules
Be respectful. Inappropriate or disrespectful behavior will result in disqualification or other disciplinary actions as the referees see fit.

Using "Burn Dat House" (Slugga boys ability) on power farms is prohibited.
Failing to follow this rule will result in a game loss.



Community Help: Referees
Any volunteer referees are welcome. Contacts Eerie for this on Steam.

What should a referee do:
  • Be in the tournament chat room some time before the tournament starts.
  • Help people find their opponents.
  • Resolve disputes between players after watching the replays.
Referees can't play in the tournament.
*With exception of eliminated players when there would be a lack of referees.

Streamers
Every streamer out there is welcome to cast the games they want.
Please do not crowd a lobby with too many streamers.


Special thanks to Caeltos, Lulgrim, Indrid, Dark Riku, Uncle Milty, Codex, Torpid and Floid for helping me put things together.

News and/or changes will be communicated on the forum and the MRT Steam group.
Stay tuned for more! Good luck and have fun everyone!

If you have any additional questions, you can contact Eerie on steam
or write your thoughts down here in the thread.

These 3 commanders are the only ones a players is allowed to use during the course of the tournament.

Player can pick any one of those 3 commanders at any time and must let the other player know, what his pick is.

You may also enter as random instead of picking 3 commanders.
You will be locked into random for all your games then.

In the first game one of the players from the team that was in the top of the bracket picks his commander first, then both players from the enemy team pick their commanders. First player's teammate is last to pick his commander.

In the second games, the situation is reversed. First, a player from the team that was in the bottom of the bracket is picking his commander, then both players from the team that was in the top of the bracket pick their commanders, then the remaining player pick's his commander. If it is a bo5.

In case of going to the last game (3rd or 5th, depending on a format), remaining victory points from the previous games will be summarised and the team with more remaining will choose in what order of the previous 2 they want to pick.

Maps
The first round of a match will always be a fixed map as shown in the brackets.

My vote is for the August Tourney to be 2v2. It would almost certainly be more popular than 1v1 and puts emphasis on teamwork and communication, so there's a greater chance of upsets.

heheh, well, guess I'm going to spoil the surprise, but there's a certain individual who might have some plans for some other the 1v1 tournament in the nearest future. This is the reason I'm sticking with 1v1 for now.

Will Saturday's tournament be using 2.1 or 2.2 beta? I didn't see this addressed anywhere, and was unsure if 2.2 was considered stable enough for it, even though my preference would be 2.2. Thanks :)

Unless the bugs occuring in 2.2 are fixed, we'll stay with 2.1. I was about to announce it with brackets.

You should seriously consider running it in Beta 3.

The only thing broken now is ST nade Barrage, but compared to all the other positive fixes and balance tweaks (especially to Grey Knights themselves), not to mention webway gates and Nid towers, I think it is well worth going with beta 3.

Definitely support this. Besides, 2.1 kinda screws over anyone with a GK pick who expected 2.2+...
