Challonge Grid:

Spoiler


The Format + Rules (please read carefully)

  • Gentool version 8.4 mandatory. Important: Upload mode has to be on!
  • Round 1 - Best of 9
    Round 2 - Best of 11
    Round 3 - Best of 11
    Round 4 (Quarter Finals) - Best of 13
    Round 5 (Semi Finals) - Best of 13
    Round 6 (Finals and 3rd place) - Best of 13
  • The games are Random Reverse with a mirror as a tiebreaker unless players can agree on MatchUps. If you get a mirror at anytime before the decider, you MUST NOT play it twice, play the mirror and then choose the next map and back to random reverse. If no mirrors have been played, OR if an even number of mirrors have been played, the deciding match of each best of round has to be a given mirror:
    • Round 1: If the score is 4-4 the deciding match has to be a GLA Stealth mirror.
    • Round 2: If the score is 5-5 the deciding match has to be a China Nuke Mirror.
    • Round 3: If the score is 5-5 the deciding match has to be a GLA Demolition mirror.
    • Round 4: If the score is 6-6 the deciding match has to be a USA Laser Mirror.
    • Round 5: If the score is 6-6 the deciding match has to be a China Tank mirror.
    • Round 6: If the score is 6-6 the deciding match has to be a USA Airforce Mirror.
  • The top player in the bracket match-up will choose first map, then each map pick will alternate between the players. For the semi finals and the finals, the higher numbered seed will choose first map. If there are multiple map versions available (v1, v2, etc.) the latest version has to be played. Each map may only be played once per round.
  • Our Fair Play Rules and Standard Tournament Rules apply.
    Placing scaffolds beyond their intended purpose to build and complete the structures are not allowed with the exception of:
    • Placing a scaffold with the intent of creating a building.
    • Removing GLA scraps at any time and any location on the map.
    • Forcing guarding enemy air units within close scaffold proximity to shoot onto the ground.
    • Placing for survival purposes to remain in the game, but as not to interfere with enemy units or buildings.
    • Placing scaffolds to trick opponent's waypoint scouting efforts.
    • Placing scaffolds to remove destroyed buildings or flatten terrain.
    • Placing scaffolds to protect Workers/Dozers/Trucks.
  • Play your World Series games under your Gamereplays.org account name to avoid confusion (unless you are SiZe).
  • Livestreams mandatory from Round 2 onwards. It would be nice to have as many matches from the first round live streamed as well but this is not a "must have".
  • Banned and Suspended Participants are not allowed to sign up.
  • If any player is suspended for whatever reason at any time during the tournament, even if its for 1 day, he will be disqualified from the tournament!
  • The Hosts reserve the right to deny a player from signing up for the tournament.

Seeding Method:


Spoiler
First 32 ranked (and signed) players from ClanWars and the first 32 ranked (and signed) players from Online 1v1 Ladder will be added to pots.

First 16 ClanWars Ladder Players in Pot 1
First 16 C&C:Online 1v1 Ladder Players in Pot 2
Next 16 ClanWars Ladder Players in Pot 3
Next 16 C&C:Online 1v1 Ladder Players in Pot 4

(*1)Players that are ranked from ClanWars will be skipped in Shatabrick to remove duplicates of course.

(*2) With an exception for Expert players: All GameReplays.org titled expert players that ranked in Pot #3 or #4 are automatically moved to Pot #2 and push lower ranked players down to Pot #3 and Pot #4. This will guarantee no Expert vs Expert matches in Round #1.

Players within the pots are randomly seeded and matched against each other in Round 1 in the following form:

Pot #1 vs Pot #4
Pot #2 vs Pot #3


FAQ


Spoiler
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.


Guidelines For Streaming


Spoiler
Guideline for Players
Arrange your matches as early as possible with opponent and streamer. Do NOT (!) ask opponent for times, instead post times that work for you!
Show up on time for the arranged match schedule.
Verify that GenTool Upload Mode is set to SAVE ALL before match start.
Match Streamers are encouraged to stream matches and are obliged to seek approval from match participants and tournament organizer(s). Players are obliged to allow match streamer(s), unless there are legitimate reasons to reject the request, for example due issues with unacceptable latency or commentary bias.

Guideline for Match Streamers
Streamer can get in touch with players to arrange a fixed match time and await approval from all participants.
Please announce streams as early as possible in the forum by posting a link to the video channel.
If possible, all match participants should try to arrange a connection test to identify and solve any potential issues early.
Before streaming, check that the microphone audio and game audio + video is properly setup. Prefer louder voice volume over game volume. Add all participants to the buddy list.
When commentating matches, please keep a professional and unbiased attitude at all times. Avoid conversations that are unrelated to the event, the players and the matches.
If the streamer loses the connections during a match, the players can keep on playing their match until complete. When done, the players need to wait for the return of the streamer unless the streamer is gone for good. The streamer may watch the replay quickly to show the audience what he was missing after his disconnect, without letting the players wait for longer than necessary to show the missing content from the replay.
If players become unhappy with the connection speed, as it surpasses 24 frames latency and/or occasional long stalls, which makes playing difficult for the players, all match observers need to leave the match. It is recommended to continue the stream by showing the game action from replays, as they become uploaded to the GenTool server. The streamer may give moderator privileges to video chat users to mute other users that would post match spoilers in the process.


MODERATION NOTICE
The following kind of replies are not allowed:
1. Spam
2. Off Topic Discussions
3. Derogatory comments about the players or the streamers

Violating posts will be removed from view and are subject to further moderation.
This topic will be moved to the Zero Hour Tournaments forum upon completion.

Hey SPL, when would you be able to play? I can do anytime Saturday. I'm not sure about Sunday, yet. I'm also not sure about next week, but I have a flexible schedule so just let me know what works for you and most likely I will be able to make the time you propose.

That is for the prediction competition so that participants won't miss out on points.
