Game Parameters: 5 , PPSC, 25 hour phases, Anon, Classic Map, Full Press (The Final will have 36 hour phases)
Registration ends Friday Sept 17th.
Round 1 begins Monday Sept 20th.
The Tournament consists of 2 Rounds and a Final. In each Round, participants will play 2 games simultaneously. Everyone who signs up
(assuming there is a multiple of 7, if not, places will be awarded on a first-come first-served basis) will play in Round 1. The 21 highest-ranked participants (explained below) will move on to Round 2. The 7 highest-ranked participants in Round 2 will move on to the Final (consisting of 1 game).
Seeding for Round 1 will be based off of GR. A player not currently listed on GR will be considered to have a Rating of 0. Games will be arranged to balance the average skill of players and so that, if possible, no two players will play more than one game together per Round. Additionally, no player will play the same country in the same Round (this will be resolved by a mod. Players should email GFDT.firstname.lastname@example.org if it happens).
Seeding for Round 2 will be based off of the points won in Round 1.The top 21 players will advance to Round 2. Everything else about Round 2 is the same as Round1. The Point system is as follows:
Solo victory in a game = 36
Participation in a draw = 34/# of players involved in the draw
Surviving a game = # of SCs you control at the end of the game
Ties will be broken by the players' seeds for that round--the higher seeded player going ahead.
The top 7 players from Round 2 will play in the Final.
Each player will be allowed 1 pause per Game of up to one week in length. It will be expected that all players within the game will honor this rule when requested by a player. If additional time is required, it may be requested (but may not be granted) by emailing the Tournament Director. If a pause lasts for longer than the allowed time, players should email the Tournament Director.
