2v2 Prime Commanders Tournaments (O1800 and U1800) POSTPONED

Postby Hybrid_ » 30 Nov 2019, 20:53

This is the main thread for two 2v2 tournaments.

READ BEFORE SIGNING UP.

Rules are the official FAF tournament rules.

IRC channels will be made closer to the tournament. The TD is me (Hybrid_).

If anyone would like to sponsor or help with the prize pool please pm me, thanks.

Each tournament will have a total of 8 teams, With the top 8 highest overall rated teams playing out of the signups.

The first tournament is the U1800 Prime Commanders tournament and will be on 18th Of January, 16:00 GMT.
This means that each player has to be under 1800 to the nearest 100 rating (highest rating out of ladder or global will count). So for example there can be two 1700s in a team, or a 1700 or a 1600.

The Second and latter tournament will be the O1800 Prime Commanders tournament and will be on 25th Of January, 16:00 GMT.
This means that each player has to be over 1800 to the nearest 100 rating(highest rating out of ladder or global will count). So for example there can be a 2000 rated player and a 1800 rated player in a team.

Tournament Style

Groups:
For each tournament there will be 2 groups consisting of 4 teams all seeded by me. Each team will play each other twice in a bo1. However, you will play each team once before playing another team again in your group. Therefore each team will play at least 6 games in the entire tournament. The maps will be chosen by me from a selected bo1 map pool.
The top two teams of each group will proceed to semifinals.

Playoffs:
All playoff games are to be in a bo3. The first place teams will be play the second placed teams of the opposite group. All bo3's will have a veto system.

How the veto works
There will be a total of 7 maps to choose from. 4 maps will be banned and the remaining maps are to be played in alphabetical order.

Semifinals
2nd place team will ban first, then the 1st place team will ban two, and the second place team will ban last.

Grand Finals and 3rd Place decider
The team with the most bo1 losses from the group stage will ban first, then the team with the least will ban 2 maps, then the team with the most losses will ban the last map.

Map pool
I will release both map pools a week or two before the first tournament starts. Note that both may have some of the same maps but I will try to mix it up.

IRC channels will be made closer to the tournament.

If this ends up going well I will think about making it an annual tournament.
Feel free to ask any questions :)


EDIT : REASON FOR POSTPONING

Basically my pc has broke and I will not be back for around a month or so as I have exams too. Therefore the tournament will postponed for a while. When I get back I will change the rating rules as I have looked over them with a few people and we agreed that the system I was thinking of doing wouldn’t suit the tournament and I will try and start the tournament a few weeks later when I’m back.

On that note, keep up to date with the forum and I will hopefully be back soon enough :)

Looking for a teammate, hopefully find one, but I'll sign in as backup.

Not allowing players O1800 and U1800 to play with eachother is a terrible idea

I personally think 1800 is a poor choice of pivot. There are many u1800s (I can think of some usual suspects...) who belong in the o1800 group.

But hey, I are noob, can like to know eff all

In Hybrid's defense, I know the pains of wanting to have a tourney for people that are not as committed and/ or capable as the top players. Unfortunately, the global rating system doesn't help in creating divisions. This is why Team Matchmaker is needed so it can display a rating purely sourced from measuring skill for 2v2 sshd 3v3.

For that, I also agree with Farm that both participants meeting the rating limit is lame. I think a mix of high and average skill is fun to play and watch.

So nobody is going to even sign up for this tournament? Is there any prize money? I thought FtX was taking the ladder league money and giving it to this tournament instead, but that isn't announced in either thread? Seems like there are major promotion and communication issues going on.

Reading the tourneys section of the player councilor discord, hybrid stated he has PC issues and is going to postpone. I have yet to see this happen, but it's likely a good bet to not plan it happening.
