Depending on how many teams enlist for the tournament, we will play a pre-round to find the top 8 or top 16 teams. If less than 8 teams enlist we reserve the right to cancel the tournament, but we hope this will not happen.
In the pre-round each team plays against 2 teams. Maps will be played in stopwatch mode. The Team that wins a map the shortest time earns 1 point. If no Team winds the map it counts 0.5 points for each Team.
During pre-round and elimination round each Team will choose 1 map out of the mappool.
So after the pre-round the teams with the most points earned will advance to elimination round. In elimination round again each pair of teams will be randomly chosen by splatterladder.
But now a match is counted best of 3. that means every Team need to play 3 maps 2 times vs. another Team. One map chosen by each team and one map chosen by splatterladder. Best 4 or 8 advance to stage (semi-final or quarter-final). After the needed rounds we will have a final for 3rd and a final for 1st place.
Every Clan may enlist 1 or 2 Teams for the Tournament. We decided to limit the number of Teams per Clan to avoid having 1 big Clan winning all sponsored servers. But you dont need to be in a clan to play in the Tournament, you can also build a Team with your friends.
The Matchservers will be set up to 8 slots +1 private, so every Team has 3 players, plus 2 slot for shoutcasters. The matches will also be available on ETTV.
Every Player of every Team will need to record demo of the game so if there are any complaints during or after the match we will review the demos of the match and take necessary action. Also a screenshot after each map need to be saved by each team. If a member of a Team dont show up at the set date and time, the Team has the chance to play 2vs3 or 1vs3, if a Team dont show up the Opponent has won.
Registration is open from today, 11th of February 2015 until the 31st of March 2015.
Pre-round matches will be played from 6th of Avril till 19th of Avril, that gives everyone the chance to find a date for the matches. Elimination Round starts from 20th till 26th of Avril, the semi-finals from 27th till 30th of Avril, the battle for 3rd on the 1st of May and the final will be played on the 2nd of May.
If you have any questions, ask them now!
Splatterladder reserves the right to exclude Teams or Teammembers for every reason. This will not be a greencard for us but will give us the right to handle the Tournament a fair way. So to make this Tournament a as fair as possible event for each and every combatant, we will exclude every cheater from it. If one player of a Team is caught, the whole Team will be excluded. We will have zero tolerance in this case.
Since this is the first time that we arrange a Tournament, there may be many things that dont work perfect. Also we dont know if we have to plan for 4 or 40 Teams to participate. We kindly ask everyone who plays in the Tourney for their feedback during and after the event so we can improve things if we ever plan to do another one in the future.
ATTENTION: The Tournament will be hosted with 16 Teams participating. If you are too late and register at challonge as Team number 17 or later, you are not participating in the Tournament! So move quick if you want to take part.
