Lobby Rules
- All start with Random Factions
- Host of the game picks first faction and x's Up ( if aeon was picked by Team 1 then Team 2 can only pick from the other 3 factions)
- Team 2 picks there 2 factions and x's up
- Team 1 gets the remaining faction and x's up
- When All factions selected, Team 1 reveals their remaining 2 slots, then team 2 reaveals their last 2 slots.
- So there should be 2 faction in both teams represented (E.g aeon & sera vs uef & cybran)
- Once all faction have been selected and your colours are correct launch the game.
Note: stipulate teams meeting for the 2nd time will switch the order of reveal process of their first meeting for fairness

If a disconnect or any other disruption occurs, the outcome will be decided by a tournament director, any decisions made are final.

Unless I'm mistaken there is nowhere where it even says how many players are on each team in this tourney. Is it a 3v3, 4v4 or what? Seems like an important detail you might want to include in the rules.

No it's not. You think turtling for a para is a valid option in high lvl teamgames? Aside from sentons i don't remember the last time someone made it because it's that rare, and even on sentons people frequently choose making a mavor over making a para even though they do have the tech available. If they manage to do it they deserve it. Also, removing para but keeping mavor and yolo is highly unfair.

The paragon restriction is to prevent the team that picks first faction on a large map,
from picking Aeon and then turtling to build Paragon.
The other team will not be able to do the same, as it is locked out of building Aeon.
Decision was made for fairness.
When pitching tourny idea to Rowey, I left this particular detail to Rowey to decide between 3 choices:
1-Leave paragon
2-Leave paragon, but "agree" not to build, game stays ranked... or
3-Restrict paragon, games are unranked..
He choose 3, but i would think either 2 or 3 would be best choice?

Check my link for better insight and pics for tourny and the following post for some of my thoughts on the tourny.

Did you mean 3v3?

Rainbow Cup II - Alliance's - 4v4

Postby Fearghal » 15 Jun 2018, 17:15

Hi Blodir,,
The "Rainbow Cup I" was a 4v4 u7000 tourny, 7000/4 players was a 1750 avg player rated tourny,
This "Rainbow Cup II - Alliance's" tourny is also a 4v4, but a u7200 limit for a 1800 max avg/team,
----(we had 21 teams enter the "Rainbow Cup I", bumping this tourny rating cap up 200 pts,
----------might get the 16 team entry I am shooting for)
The following planned tourny in the series,
is the "Rainbow Cup III" and will be a u6000 3v3, for a higher skilled 2000 avg/team rating.

Something is wrong - i only see 4 factions...
When we had ZeP's ladder system I played more 1v1s on only Winter duel, than I play actual games in current trash they call ladder. Makes me so sad.
