Clash of Clans Tournament

Postby FtXCommando » 16 Mar 2017, 16:42

Hey everyone, I decided to create a new clan war tourney and change the structure from the traditional IGC one. The rules for this tournament have been created with an attempt to encourage small clans to play while keeping enough flexibility that any ACTIVE clan should easily be able to play their matches. I hope to utilize this tournament as both a test for future clan wars (such as IGC) in order to see the activity of clans all across the spectrum. This is why I hope small clans won't feel intimidated about joining. In fact, we encourage them to join the tournament!

Clan Requirements:
- Minimum of 4 members

- Has a designated leader that will be responsible for organizing their team and reporting results. The person that will be considered the leader of the clan must be mentioned in the post requesting entry into the tournament.

- You must post the clan name and clan tag in the post requesting entry in the tournament


Rules:
- The tournament will be Swiss style.

- The clan leader must submit a roster for who will ideally participate in each match. They will renew this roster after each tournament round. This is to give each team an idea of who they are facing and will make getting 1v1/2v2 matches done much easier.

- A roster must be completely filled out every week, otherwise a clan forfeits their place in the tournament as they are simply not active enough to be depended upon.

- Everyone in the clan is able to participate so the roster is allowed to be modified. If a player is unavailable, he can be substituted with another clan member that is online.

- However, at least ½ of the roster must be faithful in each match. For example, you cannot have someone do a 1v1 for the clan unless they signed up. You also cannot have 2 entirely different people do a 2v2, however, having 1 person substituted in is permissible. Similarly, only 1 person can be substituted in for the 3v3, but 2 can be substituted in for the 4v4.

- The TDs will refuse most requests to actually change a roster after it has been submitted barring significant unexpected events that have forced a player to be unable to play. This is not something to be abused and exploiters will have their entire clan banned from the tournament.

- You can either PM the roster to a TD, send an offline message via !offlinemessage to the TD, or forum private message the TD your roster. Once both teams that are facing one another send their roster to a TD, it will be posted on the tournament thread. Lineups must be submitted by Wednesday 20:00 GMT at the latest.

- The games for the tournament will be attempted to be balanced by the TD when the rosters are given in private. The games will be balanced around game quality where as many high game quality matches as possible will be created. If there is an issue with matchmaking, please talk to the TD in private as soon as possible.

- The games will follow faf rules and ethics, anything that is deemed bannable will cost you points. Rule breaks and point penalties will be up to the discretion of the TD.

- Share until death must be used for each tourney round.

- People must not leave mid-game during their round. This is in order to minimize replay desyncs.


Timeline:
Spoiler: show
- Each round of the tournament will officially begin on 0:00 GMT Tuesday of each week. Each round will go to 24:00 GMT Sunday.

- Each clan has this entire specified time period to play their 1v1/2v2 tournament matches against their matched opponent. Both clan leaders are responsible for organizing their matches together and should try to find a time that works for both parties. If a set time cannot be found, it is acceptable to just wait until both teams have the required clanmates online to play the game during the week.

- The 3v3 match will happen on Saturday and the 4v4 match will happen on Sunday. The matches will be scheduled to take place at 15:00 GMT on each day. There will be a 30 minute grace period, and if a clan fails to show up for the tournament match, even with the grace period, they will forfeit the match.

- However, if both teams agree to have their match at a different time, it is acceptable for the match to occur later or earlier provided a TD gets a 24 hour notice. Be aware the 3v3 must happen on Saturday and the 4v4 must happen on Sunday. All times will be based on GMT to eliminate date confusion.

- If a match is unable to happen within the allotted week, the tournament director will set a time for the missed round(s) with feedback from both leaders on the following Monday. Once set, this time is nonnegotiable. These missed round(s) will happen before 23:00 GMT Monday or the team that fails to show up will forfeit the match. If a team is repeatedly tardy and misses, for example, both their 3v3 as well as some 1v1/2v2 games, that team will be kicked from the tournament with no exceptions due to inactivity.



Connections:
Spoiler: show
- If a player drops due to disconnect, the game will continue.

- Each game gets a “drop period” equal to the player amount in each game * 1 minute. If a player drops during this “drop period,” the game can be restarted without penalty. However, both teams must agree to the restart and if there is a conflict then it will be up to the TD’s discretion to determine if the game should be restarted.

- For example, if a player drops at minute 6:30 in a 4v4, the game can be restarted. However, a drop at 6:30 in a 3v3 cannot be restarted and the team must play on with the drop or forfeit the round.

- If two players on opposing teams lose connection, both will leave the game.



Round Segments:
Spoiler: show
3 1v1s. However, each 1v1 must be fought by a different person in the clan.
Each game will account for 1 point and can take place at any time during the “Round Week.”

2 2v2s. Each clan can have 1 person play in both 2v2s, however, there must be at least one different teammate in the matches.
Each game will account for 2 points and can take place at any time during the “Round Week.”

1 3v3
This will account for 3 points and must take place on the Saturday of that “Round Week” at 15:00 GMT (4:00 PM at London due to Daylight Savings) unless scheduled for another time on that Saturday.

1 4v4
This will account for 3 points and must take place on the Sunday of that “Round Week” at 15:00 GMT (4:00 PM at London due to Daylight Savings) unless scheduled for another time on that Sunday.



Maps:
Spoiler: show
- The maps will be chosen by a random number generator (With the generator being streamed so no one feels the map selection is biased).

- The maps for each segment of the round will be given out a week before the tournament round they are in officially begins. This means once Week 1 of the tournament starts, the maps for Week 2 will be released.


Map Pools:
*Note, any adaptive maps will have their settings released during the round they are picked. I understand that the maps do not have their settings shown in the map pool, you do not need to inform me of this.

Also maps cannot be picked twice, so if a map is rerolled during the selection process, the role will be discarded.

AoS could potentially play if members such as Lainelas and alegahbfahkslfbaskjfhjk were interested I think. Although I would not be the representative to take part in this directly. Is it OK for a non-leader to assume a leadership role for this purpose?

Re: Clash of Clans Tournament

Postby FtXCommando » 16 Mar 2017, 16:49

I've been made (or am) Clan Leader and have no idea what I'm Doing

Here is the post for you:


Question: What do I do to sign up?

Answer:
Spoiler: show
You simply sign up with your clan's full name, clan tag, and the leader of your clan.
For example,
Hi, I'm signing up the clan Generic for the tourney. Our tag is [GEN]. I, RandomGuy, will be our clan leader.

You do not include a roster of players in your sign up post. That is information that will be given to the TDs via pm so that they can create the most balanced matches possible between clans.


Question: What should my roster look like?

Answer:
Spoiler: show
Your roster should include the players that will be able to play during that week of the tournament. You must organize the roster before the next round begins so that the matches can be given out immediately. For example, you should send the roster for Round 2 to FtXCommando via pm on faf/forum pm/etc during the week of Round 1. Remember that the maps for Round 2 will be given out at the start of Week 1 so your team will have the ability to put certain players on certain maps.

If a player is not given a specific map that they want to play, then the TDs will attempt to balance the players so that the game quality is the highest possible for as many matches as possible.

Here is a basic message,
Hi FtXCommando, here is the roster for [GEN]. Our 1v1 players are This_Guy, That_Guy, The_Guy. The_Guy wants to play the Crimson Feud 1v1. Our 2v2 players are (Random_player, Random_noob) and (Random_player, Random_scrub). Our 3v3 players are Hitler, Stalin, and Mao. Our 4v4 players are Iron, Steel, Bronze, and Silver.


I am [mad, salty, depressed, hungry]. Where do I spam my malcontent?

Answer:
Spoiler: show
Obviously in an ideal world, a clan player should report issues to their clan leader who in turn can report to me. However, it is fine for anyone to talk with me via PM if they feel a team is cheating, abusing rules, or doing something that they shouldn't be doing. Please don't turn this thread into a shit-flinging contest; let me or eggroll handle the disputes rather than attempting to do mob justice and ruining the tourney for everyone. If you do not know what to do, talk to me. If someone is being a d***, talk to me. If you feel your wife is cheating on you with your neighbor, talk to her.


Where do I report who won their rounds?

Answer:
Spoiler: show
You should post the round victories in this thread. I would appreciate it if the round victories could be posted by a clan leader in a single post in order to reduce chaos and to maintain the chain of information for everyone. Replays, are of course, always nice but they are not required to attach to a post. If someone lies about who won (which I hope would not happen) then I can look at the replays on a case-by-case basis.

Yes of course, just please inform me who the leader is. In order to minimize chaos there is supposed to be a chain of command where the clan leader maintains general organization of the clan while the TDs have an easy person to talk to about anything relating to said clan.

Hence it might be best to give "clan leader" title to anyone that is often online and capable to organize information for your clan.

Atm i will sign up here:

UEF clan sign up.JPG
UEF clan sign up.JPG (10.56 KiB) Viewed 4068 times


BUT i have to admit two things here:

1.) Ammount of games is even more than IGC with 3 1v1 games and it is a lot of work to organize this over working week

2.) especially with not to be allwed to change more than 50% of my team. In IGC rooster was made at the tourney day when all people collected and that was always difficult.

Maybe your idea to play the 1v1 games and 2v2 games flexible over the week is good, no idea it feels difficult for me to organize.
