League Supporting 1v1 Tournament @ March 30th Saturday - Prize

Postby Impregnable » Tue 12 Mar, 2019 12:52 pm

- The organizer has the right to alter any rules during the tournament to adapt to various needs that arise.
- I will refrain from altering rules during the tournament as best as I can in order to keep consistency in applying rules but will not hesitate to intervene if the need arises.

Preamble
When I first started organizing tournaments back in June of 2016, I decided to do 2v2 tournaments because looking back at past records showed that 2v2 was underrepresented and there were only a few tourneys done for 2v2. At the same time, Atlas' MRT was still a regular thing so I wanted to provide a different mode for tournaments. Then, suddenly Atlas had to put most of his time in patching work and 1v1 scene largely fell into dark age without any tournaments for a very long time. Horrible influence from the warp in the form of DOW3 did not help either. This is why I am very grateful towards Adila who decided to do a league format which can engage players for a long time.

However, league format requires commitment across a long term period and is not fitting for players who can only do a one day all games format of MRTs of the past. Of course, this is not Adila's fault. If we can make players engaged over a longer period of time, the better. He also has limited time and effort resources for organizing so doing MRT and the league at the same time is not possible. This holds same for me. I cannot regularly organize both 2v2 and 1v1 tournaments at the same time but I can at least from time to time like once in 6 months do a 1v1 tournament like this to fill in the gap that Adila's league cannot fulfill for certain players. Therefore, this tournament is named League Supporting 1v1 tournament because it aims to do what the name suggests.

Those who cannot commit to the league, those who wants to practice in tournament environment as not to dull the skill in between leagues and those who are eliminated from the league due to many losses but still wants to do a tournament while waiting for the next league season are all welcome to join. Those who wants to taste what it feels like in the league in terms of rules and format are also welcome because rules and format are exactly the same for this one day tournament only with little alteration as to fit in one day tournament format. I sincerely hope this tournament can further help Adila in getting more hype for his league.

1. When does it start?

- The tournament will be played in the 1 v 1 format.

- It's going to be a double elimination tournament and we'll play as many signups as possible.

4. Hosting and Refereeing
1. Turning on ESL reporter is mandatory.
2. There will be no referees for this one so I expect each player to know rules by his or her heart.
3. Would be great if observing players can help out players in game in regards to rules.

5. Maps & hero picks.
Map Picking First -> Hero Picking Second

Map Pick - Applies to both Below Semifinals and Semifinal/Finals matches
- Map pick is always done first before the Hero Pick.
- The same map can only be played once in a BO.
- Maps that are variants of other maps, such as Calderis Refinery and Valderus Refinery, will count as one map.
- Each player can veto 1 map during a match. That map is then banned for the rest of the BO.
- The player on the top bracket(Top of the box) always casts a veto first.

Hero Pick - Applies to both Below Semifinals and Semifinal/Finals matches
- You can only play your heroes once each match.
- Each player has 1 hero veto per game. The veto only lasts for 1 game.
- This means veto is not possible in the last match of BO5 because each player will end up with only 1 hero to pick.

Thanks for supporting the game with all three tourney formats; 3v3 MFW - 2v2 MTT - 1v1 LS ; I got a request if you are able to do so mate:
Since you are covering 3v3,2v2 tourneys; and we barely have 1v1 tourneys (Adila is doing a fantastic job on "ELeague" but not all of us who are passionate about 1v1s can join that due to the lack of time); could you also run the MRTs as well? (I know it is atlas's thing; but mb u can do it co-op when he is around and when he is not u can do it which would be awesome) if you do i am sure many would join in monthly and many would donate for the prize pool. The 1v1 tourneys are easier to run than the team games also, if you do that would be absolutely great!

anyhow appreciate your hard work so far!

I understand. well, we always have the 2v2s that should be close to 1v1s :)

Also on second thought. Please put me on reserve for now.
Will tell you if i can attend this ,on the day of the event. but if i do, I have the same hero picks as I mentioned above. thanks
