This tournament will be run on the official C&C Tiberian Dawn Remastered server, so please confirm that you are able to access it before you attempt to join this event. In addition, for ease of communication, for the organisation of your own matches and result reporting, we will be using a discord where a lot of Tiberian Dawn players base out of called C&C Tournament Central. When signing up, please state the username under which you will be playing in the tournament, it is preferable for your in-game and discord name to match so your opponents/referees can find you easily.

It is your own responsibility to make sure you check in and show up at the correct time and date. Check in procedure is elaborated thoroughly further below. You will not be reminded individually by staff or by a referee. The entire tournament will be finished within an estimated 4-6 hours, so please make sure to clear your schedule in advance.

The tournament will be played as a double elimination tournament. For those unsure what this means, it means each player has to lose twice before they are knocked out of the tournament. All games will be best of 3 up to the winners and losers bracket finals which will be played as Best of 5. Grand finals will be played as Best of 7 however the winners bracket finalist will have the advantage of being 1-0 up as a reward for not losing a single match throughout the tournament.

Signing up and checking in


You must be signed up by the time that sign ups close (1 hour before the event is due to start). Entries after that time may be accepted at the discretion of the tournament organizers. Apart from that, you need to be checked in before the event starts. All check-ins will be done on the discord in the specific tournament-chat channel, a simple "check me in" will suffice. It is good to note that sign up in the previous two GroundHog Brawl tournaments have been somewhat lenient so if you are late to sign up, it does not hurt to give me a direct message on discord to state your interest in playing. If I have not created the final brackets when you message me then there is still hope you can squeeze in.

Please note Commanders, letting someone else play in your name in an event is treated as cheating by GameReplays and will be punished accordingly. The fixed penalty for a first offence cheat conviction prescribed by the site rules is a 28 day suspension from GameReplays. The penalty for a second offence is a permanent ban.

Seeding


For this tournament we will be actively doing seeding based on the players ladder position. So the higher you are on the ladder, the less likely you are to be placed against a higher ranked player in the first round.

Gameplay


For this tournament any faction is allowed including random.

Bugs and Exploits


Use of bugs and exploits is prohibited. Anyone who uses bugs or exploits in their matches will be immediately disqualified from this tournament with the potential of full exclusion from future tournaments.

Map pool and Spawn positions


Map Pool
  • Green Acres - top middle vs bottom middle
  • Monkey In The Middle - top left vs bottom right
  • Canyon Pursuit -only two spawn points
  • Heavy Metal - top left Vs bottom right
  • Quarry - only two spawn points
  • Elevation - only two spawn points
Map Format
For this tournament we will be using the following system:
Best of 3 rounds each player will pick one map that they wish to play with the decider being Elevation.
Best of 5 rounds each player will take turns picking one map at a time (two each) and again, Elevation will be the decider if required.
The best of 7 grand final will have the winners bracket finalist starting 1-0 up in the score. Then all 6 maps will be played, each player will take turns picking one map each to determine the map order, starting with the losers bracket winner.

When it comes to deciding spawn positions, the positions will be picked by the player who didn't choose the map. So if it's player A's map choice then Player B will decide which spawn positions each player takes.


Streaming


The main stream for viewing the tournament will be here. Players are more than welcome to stream their point of view of their own games however I would prefer if players refrain from streaming other players games as a third person, there are multiple reasons for this so I hope people understand.

Result Reporting


After the winner of each round has been determined, it is the responsibility of the winning player to report the victory to a referee via a tourny-match-results chat channel on the discord server.
