Rules and Formalities

Event Format

The tournament will be played as a single elimination tournament. All games will be played in a best of 3 format with the finals going to a best of 5.


With the introduction of Gamereplays revamped medal system, we will now be handing out Medals to players who participate in our events! The two medals we will be handing out are the Tournament Winners Medal and the Tournament Participation Medal. To gain the Tournament Winners Medal, you just have to win a tournament. To gain a Participation Medal, you must participate in all rounds of the tournament until you are eliminated (this includes the 3rd place playoffs.)

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). Once the sign-ups close, players have 45 minutes to check in for the event. We will make a separate forum topic for that purpose. You must check in. Players that have checked in will be added to the bracket, regardless of whether they are present when the event starts.

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. Don't do it!


For this tournament players will play a best of 3 on the map designated to their round. The players are permitted to use any hero.

Hosting and Banning Phase: The highest seeded player will be the one who has to host the game. They will set up the match according to the layout below.

Rule Set: Quick Play
Map order: Single
Return to lobby: After a game
Map: Designated map for the round
Hero Selection Limit: 3
Hero Switch Allowed: Yes
Hero's: Select "off" for any hero banned. The banning phase will be discussed below
Control Game Format: BO3 until the Finals, then BO5

Each player will take it in turns to ban a hero from the series. Up to 3 hero's may be banned per player. These hero's will be unplayable for the whole series.

If referees or commentators want to observe your game, you must open a slot for them. Not letting commentators or referees in may result in you getting disqualified from the tournament.

Map pool

You must play your whole series on the map listed below.

Map pool

  • RO16: Nepal
  • RO 8: Lijang Tower
  • RO 4: Illios
  • RO 2: Oasis
The map selection is fixed and not negotiable.


Seeding will be randomly seeded before the tournament starts.

Result Reporting and Replays

After the winner of each round has been determined, it is the responsibility of the winning player to report the victory to a referee.

Conduct at the Event

Players are expected to assist in the conduct of the event. Accordingly, conduct which tends to disrupt the event, including a failure to follow the instructions of the tournament manager or staff, interrupting or intervening in announcements made by the tournament staff or discourteous or disruptive conduct generally may result in forfeiture, sanction or disqualification from the tournament or future tournaments. The decision of the tournament manager on all matters concerning the conduct and outcome of the tournament is final and not open to debate. Questioning any such decision is likely to be treated as disruptive conduct.

Cheating/Disconnecting/Dispute Resolution

All reports and issues will be resolved by the tournament manager and the referees. Cheating and intentional disconnecting will result in exclusion from the tournament and a ban from future tournaments hosted by GameReplays.org. Poor sportsmanship may also result in disqualification from the tournament..

Being Late

Players/teams that fail to check-in or that do not show up within 15 minutes of their allocated match time will be disqualified. At this point, an alternate player(s)/team may be allocated to their position, or the opponent will advance. Players are expected to continue playing until eliminated or until the end of the tournament is reached. Failure to play rounds in an expedient manner may result in disqualification.


If you accept the rules and wish to participate in this tournament, please post in the tournament discussion topic, giving the on line ID you will be using. Registration for the event closes 1 hour before the event is due to start. Entries after that time may be accepted at the discretion of the tournament organizers but under no circumstances will entries be accepted after check-ins have closed.

Please do not sign up if you are not 100% sure that you will be attending the tournament.

N.B. In addition to signing up for this event, you must also check-in (we will make a forum topic for that purpose). Check-in opens when sign-ups close and closes 15 minutes before the event starts. You must check in.

If something comes up and you are unable to attend the tournament, please post in the tournament discussion topic at once so that your slot may be reallocated to another player. Failure to show up without in-advance cancellation may result in exclusion from future tournaments.

We hope to see you on the battlefield, Commanders!
