Tournaments are community events that usually happen once a month. The tournament organizer is usually a member from the community (Previously -2015 admins). Players are free to create a tournament in a month that does not already have one. As a general rule, tournaments rotate between 1v1 and 2v2 (ex. Oct. would be 1v1, Nov. would be 2v2).\


Remember:

-Get arbitrators to help ahead of time

-Make sure you have people always show half an hour early

-Don't get your times wrong

-Make sure your tourney doesn't last forever (or the latter)

Below are some sample forms you can use for hosting 1v1 and 2v2 tournaments, respectively:

1v1



The tourney will be on mm/dd/yy at 10AM UTC.

All participants should arrive at 9:30AM UTC to show they are here. 9:55AM UTC will be cutoff time for entry and this is when subs will go in for missing people

Tournament rules:

Swiss matches to determine top 4 players. Swiss starts with a random match-up, then players with similar scores play against each other. Depending on the number of players, it could be 4-5 rounds. Each first match is on a random map in the map pool, and thenm loser picks map. After that, it's double elimination.

We have a 15-30 mins break in between format.

Double elimination games are best of 3 matches and the final game is best of 5 matches. The first map is a designated map in the map pool, then the defeated team chooses a map from the map pool.

Tournament Reward:

(whatever you work out with developers/players such as steam keys or kudos)


Match Rules:


Swiss rounds have no time limit.

The Double elimination matches have a time limit of 60 min [with 5 mins extra]. Similar rules as above. If there is a draw, a time extension of 15 mins would be provided. If there is still a draw, a random coin toss would be used to determine the winner [or one side could accept defeat in a display of sportmantship]. In such case, we acknowledge that both participants are equal in skill and all this is just because the tournament must continue.

Match Behavior:

To foster a sense of sportsmanship [As requested by certain Devs], we ask that each official game start with both teams say a polite greeting to acknowledge a fight between equal.

[ The same system happen in all sport/game match e.g. MMA fight have opponents touch gloves before fight, taekwondo Olympic match have opponents shake hand before match, Shogi have opponents bow to each other before each match,…]

No name calling or disruptive behavior is allowed in the match. The team that violated said rule forfeits the match.

About players who have to leave due to justifiable reasons or was unintentionally disconnected, the game can be paused for a small amount of time [<3 mins]. Any longer pause would need the consent of his opponent.

The teams that are 10 minutes late or no-show, forfeit the match. Post game analysis and congratulation are encouraged but not required.

Win or lost decision will be what both teams agree on.

If any member of any teams in the match disagrees, the decision will be on the Arbitrator. Match replay link should be recorded for future complaints.

If no team had this advantage, the game continues for another 5 mins, in which time whoever get the twice units winning condition win. If at the half hour mark, none has the advantage, it's a draw.
