Good evening nabs + nabettes.

With the new year comes a new patch, what better way to celebrate then with the first tournament for 8.5?
Winners only prize: €50 voucher for amazon or steam. Sign-up here!

The tournament games will be played off-stream on Gameranger, with the replays being cast by ROTWK’s one and only Jersey Sniper.. AKA BoyzTrucky at a date TBC.

Signups close at the end of next week, Sunday 16th January. Required: Gameranger + Discord IDs and players choice for tiebreaker faction.

1v1 Single elimination, 8 player tournament.
Backups: if we get an additional 8 players to sign-up as backups, we will consider expanding the tournament to include a Ro16.

Players will have 3 days to play each round of games, and send the replays in discord. The dates may be extended if there is a Ro16.
Round 1: 19th January- 21st January.
Round 2: 22nd January- 24th January.
Final: 25th January- 27th January.

5 Maps in the pool:
Fords of isen
Plains of Lindon
Brandy River
Sakura Forest
Eyrn Layer 2

In best of 3 rounds, each player will be able to ban a map at the start of the round. Once a map is played, it is removed from the pool.
Round one (QFs): Bo3
Round two (SFs): Bo3
Final: Bo5

Rules:
1k starting resources, 1x command points, disable custom heroes, enable ring heroes.

Players will rotate between on and off host, with a tie-breaking game (the game after 1-1 in a Bo3 or after 2-2 in a Bo5) played on a neutral host.
If both players agree, all games may be played on a neutral host.

Upon sign-up, players must pre-select a faction that they wish to play in the deciding tie-breaker games of the series, if one is required. They will not be able to pre-pick this faction until the last possible game of a series, but they can random it. Players can also choose to sign up with random. Players won’t be able to change their picked tiebreaker factions once sign-ups are closed.

Factions:
Free pick or random. Can’t pick same faction twice in the same round. Random picks unlimited. If you random a faction you are still able to pick them once per round.

Map/faction selection:
For the first game, the first player (A) in the lobby will choose a map and a faction. The second player (B) then picks his faction. This will alternate between the players for the duration of the round (e.g. g2, B picks map + faction, A picks faction). For deciding tiebreaker games (score at 1-1 or 2-2), players must play on a neutral host, with their pre-picked factions, on the final map left in the pool.

Both players to save replay + host/first player in the lobby to send replay of game in discord to Trucky. If the game is not saved the result does not count. In the event a series finishes 2-0, the winning player should send an additional random replay to trucky as to not spoil the result of a series for him or the stream.

Standard rule on game crashes/disconnects/out of synch: match to be replayed unless one player has a clear lead - If both players cannot agree one or both player did or did not ‘deserve’ to win in the event of a crash/DC/OOS a referee will review the result and either impose a victory or order a rematch.

Spoiling a result before/during the stream will result in eviction from the tournament. If a player has already been eliminated + spoils a result before/during the stream they will be banned from participating in the next event that they attempt to sign up to. They will also be flammed, hard.

Discord is kind of a necessity, mainly for sending the replays directly to trucky without fear of them being spoilt. It is also easier to keep track of news + updates as well.
Itís free and you can find an invite to our server below:
