[Race / Hero Pick]

- 3 heroes pick per player or random (you don't need to announce the race/hero if you go random).
- You can't repeat heroes in bo2/bo3 and must win with each hero once in bo5.
- If the game is replayed, the player with a random race has to be random again.


1st day, Saturday (Round Robin):
- Each team plays each other in the bo1 (if >8 teams registered) OR bo2 (if <=8 teams registered) series in round order.
- Teams receive one point for each map won.
- The top 6 teams with maximum points advance to KotH-like Playoffs.
- Points ties are broken in the following order:
1) Number of map wins between the tied teams;
2) Tiebreaker matches;
3) Coin toss.

Pick orders for Round Robin:
- Team A (top team), Team B (bottom team).
- The number of players (A1, A2, B1, B2) are determined by the opening ban of the opposite team.

bo1 (if >8 teams registered):
The map is fixed for each round (will be specified in the bracket) -> Team A bans hero for B1 player -> Team B bans hero for A1 player -> Team B picks hero for B1 player -> Team A picks hero for A1 player -> Team B bans hero for A2 player -> Team A bans hero for B2 player -> Team A picks hero for А2 player -> Team B picks hero for B2 player

bo2 (if <=8 teams registered):
Game 1: Team A picks 1st map -> Team B picks 1st hero -> Team A picks 2 heroes -> Team B picks 2nd hero.
Game 2: Team B picks 2nd map -> Team A picks 1st hero -> Team B picks 2 heroes -> Team A picks 2nd hero.

2nd day, Sunday (KotH-like Playoffs):
- The seed of each team is based on the Round Robin results (example).
- Matches are bo3 until the Grand Final, which is bo5.

Pick orders for KotH-like Playoffs:
- Team A (higher seed), Team B (lower seed).
Game 1: The map is fixed (will be specified in the bracket) -> Team A picks 1st hero -> Team B picks 2 heroes -> Team A picks 2nd hero.
Game 2 and beyond: Looser Team picks the map -> Winners Team picks 1 hero –> Looser Team picks 2 heroes -> Winner Team picks 2nd hero.

- Ruins of Argus
- Desert Showdown
- Hydris Chasm
- Fen Dunloch
- Medean Cliff Mines
- Calderis Refinery

[Disconnections / Sound Bug]

- If both teams can't agree on a clear winner or a rematch, the referee will decide the outcome based on the following system:
- In case of a disconnected team's significant advantage - a rematch;
- In case of an equal situation or a disconnected team's disadvantage - a loss for a disconnected team.

[Other Rules]

- Bug abuses: Deliberate use of bugs (NOT the game mechanics like pathing) that contradict the description in the tutorials and the way the game should work, for example - the endless use of WL's "Immolate" ability leads to an immediate loss in a game. In case of repeated violation - disqualification.
- Delaying: If the referee considers that a team is delaying a match / tournament, he may decide on a technical loss in one game for such a team. In case of repeated violation - a loss in the match / disqualification.
- Toxic behaviour is prohibited. The referee may give a warning in case of a minor violation. In any other case or repeated violation - may result in a loss in the game / match / disqualification at the discretion of the referee.
- In any other conflict situations that are not specified in the rules, the referee makes the final decision.

[Prize Pool / Donations]

- 1st place - 70$;
- 2nd place - 30$.
- If you want to increase the prize pool - contact me in the discord.
- The donation can be made via PayPaypal OR on the Russian bank card.
- An increase in the prize pool will lead to more prize places.

P.S. Tex and Tenso the T&T team is ready to go. Unless of course either of us will be absent T_T.
