Apologize for late notice, I'm just throwing together a tourney real quick for November.
The tourney will be on November 19th 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
Swiss match 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.
Being worked out with devs.
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.
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 this rule, forfeit 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.
