Postby Bloodra1N » Sun 28 Jan, 2024 4:57 pm

WHAT: A two-day 2v2 tournament.
WHEN: 06-07 April 2024 at 18:00 CEST (convert to your local time).
WHERE: Event Chat thread in Elite Mod Community Discord server.
WHO can participate: Anyone regardless of skill level. You can register alone - in this case, you will be merged into a team with a random player before the start of the tournament if possible.
HOW to register: Write down your and your teammate's (if you have one) info in this forum thread or to me in Discord directly:
    - Nickname(s)
    - Heroes pick(s)
    - Steam profile(s) link(s)

CHEK IN: Confirm participation an hour before the tournament starts in Discord's Event Chat thread OR this forum thread.

1. Game Settings

[1.1] Game version: Elite 2.9.11

[1.3] Game settings:
    - Victory Point Control: 500 VPs
    - Starting Location: Random (including re-game cases)
    - Starting Resources: Standard

2. Format

[2.1] Round Robin (06 April):
[2.1.1] Each team plays each other in the bo1 (if >8 teams registered) OR bo2 (if <=8 teams registered) series in round order.
[2.1.2] Teams receive one point for each map won.
[2.1.3] The top teams with the maximum points advance to Playoffs. The number of teams qualifying for the Playoffs will depend on the total number of participating teams and will be announced after the start of the tournament (1-2 teams are planned to be eliminated).
[2.1.4] Points ties are broken in the following order:
    1) Number of map wins between the tied teams;
    2) Tiebreaker matches;
    3) Coin toss.
[2.2] Playoffs (07 April):
[2.2.1] Single (if <=8 teams registered) OR double (if >8 teams registered) KotH-like playoff bracket.
[2.2.2] The seed of each team is based on the Round Robin results. For example, if you place second in the Robin Round, you will immediately advance to the semi-finals.
[2.2.3] Matches are bo3 until the Grand Final, which is bo5.

3. Race, Hero and Map Pick

[3.1] Before the start of the tournament, players choose 3 heroes or random hero/race pick for the entire tournament. You don't need to announce the race/hero if you go random.
[3.2] You can't repeat heroes in bo2/bo3 and must win with each hero once in bo5.
[3.3] If the game is replayed, the player with a random race has to be random again.
[3.4] Maps cannot be repeated in a match.

[3.5] Pick orders for Round Robin:
bo1 (if >8 teams registered):
- Team A (top team), Team B (bottom team).
- Player numbers (A1, A2, B1, B2) are determined by the opening ban/pick of the opposite team.
- You cannot ban heroes against a team that has at least one random player.
    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
[3.6] Pick orders for 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.

1) Argus Desert Gate
2) Ashes of Typhon
3) Ancestors Rest

5. Disconnections / Sound Bug

[5.1] 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.

6. Other Rules

[6.1] Path blocking: It is prohibited to deliberately block paths with units with a higher movement priority (HT, CL, BC and all the vehicles) over units with a lower movement priority in order to disable the unit and/or block the use of its abilities. For example, path-blocking sentinel by fat heroes is prohibited, path-blocking infantry with vehicles is prohibited, while path-blocking vehicles with infantry or vehicles with vehicles is allowed. In case of violation, the game must be played to the end, after which the team must send a complaint to the referee. Depending on the impact on the game, the referee can decide to warn (with the results saved) / order a re-game / award loss in the game / disqualify the team in case of repeated violations.
[6.2] Bug abuses: Deliberate use of bugs (not mechanics) 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.
[6.3] 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.
[6.4] 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.
[6.5] In any other conflict situations that are not specified in the rules, the referee makes the final decision.

7. Streams / Observers

[7.1] Only streamers from the approved list (see below), referee/admin and tourney host are allowed to observe / stream the game, other observers are prohibited.
