It's time to open up this year's supply of tournaments.
As has become customary for odd months, January will have an 1v1 tourney on its 31st day, at 09:00 UTC. The registration is open until Friday, January 30th 2015 23:59 UTC, and everyone is welcome to take part regardless of their skill.
Additionally, players can volunteer to substitute for anyone missing after the registration has been closed and before tourney itself starts. Substitutes will be used if the original signed-up players fail to arrive within 30 minutes of start without notice, in order of sign-up, based on this thread.
- Single elimination
- First map of each round is predetermined, the following maps will be selected by the loser of the previous game from the featured 1v1 map pool.
- Finals are best of 5, all other matches including the bronze match are best of 3.
The tournament bracket will be seeded randomly
after registration closes.
The players coming first, second and third will receive special unique collectible awards
to their player profile, and receive tournament points which will at the year's end determine the year's altogether best tournament player.
The starting maps for each round are:
Round 1: EvoRTS-New_Iammas-v05
Round 2: Intersection_v3
Round 3: Comet Catcher Redux
