World Series 2017 - Qualify now!

By Ka$$aD - 8th July 2017 - 20:18 PM



Welcome everyone. We are happy to announce that this year we will host our popular Tournament, the World Series, again. For those who don't know: The World Series was repeatedly the biggest event of the past couple of years. It's a 1vs1 tournament in which you can measure yourself with other big Players in a 32 Player Bracket.

The WS2017 is going to start in August 2017.


About the Tournament



When will the tournament be played?


The games for the World Series will be played over the course of August and September 2017, starting at the 4th of August. Each round has a deadline before which the games need to be played. It is up to you, the players, to arrange a specific time and date to play your opponent within the given deadlines.

For the following rounds there is no start date: Round of 16, Quarter Finals, Semi Finals, Finals, 3rd Place. This means if you have defeated your enemy in the current round and you know who your enemy is of the next round, then you are allowed to play him without having to wait for the other players to finish their matches in the current round.

The ladder results will be taken on the 1st of August 2017 with registration in the check-in topic closing at the end of 3rd of August 2017, so be sure to post in the check-in topic before the deadline to avoid disappointment.


Deadlines:
Qualification - End of July ladder. The 32 players with the highest ranks (inside top 100) who check-in are eligible to participate in WS2017.
Check-in - 3rd of August
Round 1 (Round of 32) - 11th of August
Round 2 (Round of 16) - 18th of August
Round 3 (Quarter-Finals) - 25th of August
Round 4 (Semi-Finals) - 1st of September
Round 5 (Final + 3rd Place Play-off) - 8th of September


The format


The tournament will consist of 5 rounds. Each round will be in the 'Best of' style. This means you will have to win the majority of a set number of games to progress to the next round. For example: in a 'Best of 5' match the player who is the first to win 3 games wins the round.

The games are Random vs Random unless both players agree to play a certain matchup. If you can't agree on a match up, you will have to play random.

Round 1 - Best of 7
Round 2 - Best of 7
Round 3 (Quarter-Finals) - Best of 9
Round 4 (Semi-Finals) - Best of 9
Round 5 (Final + 3rd Place match) - Best of 11

Additionally, the option "Random Balance" has to be turned ON as well, so that you are able to see your enemy's army during loading screen.

FAQ



Are there any rules?
Our Fair Play Rules apply. Additionally, it is not allowed to place scaffolds at the very beginning of a match in the enemy base with the purpose to obstruct his base construction.


What will happen if a game ends in a disconnect, crash or mismatch?
If the game mismatches or someone disconnects, the game will have to be re-played unless there was a clear winner at the point of disconnection/crash/mismatching. In this case that player will be awarded the victory. If you are unable to agree on this, upload the replay and a tournament referee will decide.

How do I report my games?
All World Series games need to be uploaded into the topic that will be posted when the World Series begins. It is therefore very important that you save ALL your replays, wins AND losses.

Play your World Series games under your Gamereplays.org account name to avoid confusion.

Are there any prizes?
