1. After 11 years, the Faction Wars tournament is back to celebrate the new patch and challenge it's balance.



This kind of tournament has the epic feeling of fighting for the honor of your favorite faction, where player individualism is shadowed by one of this great game factions. This is also possible thanks all the previous and current events going on, such as the Top 10 Challenge league, Clanwars league, the QuickMatch league or Latino's February tournament.
All this BFME2 gamers activity has pretty much allowed us to establish by ourselves the skill rank of almost every active player. Which also means that a normal tournament may turn out way too predicable, or like one active player once said and created a meme;"we already know winner".
Another benefits of this kind of tournament is that it gathers community in order to share knowledge, mentor each other, play on a huge map pool with lots of new maps and also brings the possibility to arrange not only 2v2, but also 3vs3 and 4vs4 in the same event.



2. What a Faction Wars is?



*A faction wars tournament consists on submitting all game factions (Men, Elves, Dwarves, Isengard, Mordor & Goblins) into a all vs all war in order to compete for the glory in the Championship.

*Each faction is represented by 5(five) players of different skill ranks. Rank 5(Apprentice), Rank 4(Medium), Rank 3(Good), Rank 2(Challenger), Rank 1(Expert).

*Each faction rank can optionally have one or more backup players.

*Each tournament match will be broken by the mentioned skill ranks. So a Rank 5 player of each faction will play against the corresponding Rank 5 player from the other faction, the 4th with 4th, etcétera.

*Each tournament match can be completed either by 5 matches of 1vs1 (1 match per skill rank), or can also be completed as one 2vs2 and one 3vs3, or by one 1vs1 and one 4vs4, etcétera. Once again, always respecting the skill ranks involved in the game.



3. Tournament Info & Brackets


Duration: 4 weeks. (From Monday 5th of April, to Monday 26th of April)
Format: Round Robin & Single Elimination
Games by player: 5 rounds of 2 games (Robin), and 3 rounds of best of 3 (Eliminator).

Round Robin: Global




Rank 1 Experts


Rank 2 Challengers


Rank 3 Good


Rank 4 Medium


Rank 5 Apprentice


IPB Image
Single Eliminator


The 2nd bracket is subject to change depending on the faction ranking after the first bracket. For example, if the performance of the 5th and 6th faction is so bad that there is a insane points gap between the first 4, they will simply be kicked before entering on the Eliminator stage.

Matches against the AI shall be played only in Fords of Isen II.

Rule B. In case two different faction member do not show up for their encounter; tournament will go on to the next round without storing a point for any of the inflicting factions, being affected negatively in the final scoreboard.

Would like to participate, though I'm unsure which skill rank I'd currently fall under. I've been playing on and off as [X]Magiczzz the past two months and done pretty ok.

You can also enter me under any of the FoL factions, Elves used to be my main but I've been more consistent with MotW/Dwarves since coming back.
