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 and for the organisation of your own matches, all participants will be required to be in the GameReplays Discord channel.

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.

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 GameReplays Discord channel in the specific check-in chat channel under remastered tournaments. Check-ins will be started 30 minutes before the event is due to start and then brackets will be created, a simple message saying "check me in" will be more then enough to let referees know that you are attending. Participants who have not checked in by the time the check ins close will under no circumstances be added to the brackets and be able to participate in the event.

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.

Rules


The following rules need to be set in game lobby before players start their matches:
  • Mode: Bases On - Destroy Structures
  • Game Speed - Fast
  • Starting Units - None
  • Tech Level - 7
  • Credits - 10,000
  • Unit Queueing - Enabled
  • Tiberium Regrows - 3
  • Crates - Disabled
  • Super Weapons - Enabled
  • Redeployable MCV - Disabled
  • Spawn Visceroids - Disabled
APC/Engi Rule
Due to the recent changes to how APCs work, we have been evaluating whether this has made the strategy fair and for now, this strategy will be allowed and is available for players to use. However we will be watching the ladder and opinions of players over the coming weeks before this tournament and this rule may be reinstated if it is felt that it is still not balanced or very unenjoyable for both the players or spectators.


Map pool


Map Pool
  • Green Acres
  • Monkey In The Middle
  • Canyon Pursuit
  • Electric Avenue
  • Heavy Metal
  • Quarry
  • Elevation
Map Format
For this tournament we will be trying out a ban/pick system which works as follows:
Best of 3 rounds will start with player one banning a map from the pool, then player two bans a map, player one picks a map from the remaining maps and then player two picks a map. After this, player one bans a second map, player two then also bans a second map and the remaining map is a decider if required.
Best of 5 rounds will run very similar, each player will ban one map each at the start and then take turns picking one map each to determine the map order.
The best of 7 grand final will have the losers bracket finalist banning a map of their choosing. Then starting with the winners bracket finalist, each player will pick a map to determine the map order.

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 tournament specific chat channel on the Gamereplays discord server.

Registration


Please note, there are further rules and information listed in the sign up forum topic so please make sure you are aware of these as well.
