It Returns.... Kaze/Lore SC2 Tournament Part Deux
After long hiatus and finally being able to get the first one done/casted/finished. We are proud to announce the 2nd coming of the Kaze/Lore Starcraft 2 Tournament!
This time around it will be a double elimination tournament format following similar rule sets from our previous incarnation. Sign-ups are now open for all to sign up, please just leave your starcraft id.code and I'll add you to our potential lists. Since this originated as a Donor tournament, I'd like to give some preference to Donors and previous participants who did well will gain automatic seeding in the tournament. Depending on the turnout, we may have to set a maximum number of players allowed.
Did I mention we have a prize pool this time? Funded entirely by your loving tournament holders and a great individual sponsor by the name of Pers3us, along with myself and Lore.
The prize pool breakdown is as follows:
1st $100 US
2nd $55 US
3rd $25 US
(paid likely via paypal)
So hopefully you guys don't call it quits midway through the tournament this time! Other than the technical stuff below. Feel free to post here to ask questions etc, as I will be updating this thread as we go! Lets get it on!
Sign Ups end May 24th, 12:01AM PDT so get signed up asap!
1) Once the brackets are assigned and your opponent is indicated, it is your job to contact said player and schedule a time for a match. In an effort to prevent this from going on forever, a 1 week deadline is imposed before disqualification but please attempt to play 3 matches a week to prevent this tournament from going on too long.
2) Play will be best out of 3 format in the first round, and eventually we will be ramping it up to best out of 5 for the semifinals and best out of 7 for the final.
3) Loser will select the next map. Original map will be MLG Shattered Temple.
4) Replays will be uploaded and posted in the tournament thread. Please do not post results in this thread (use the results thread), PMs would be preferred to myself, Lore, and/or Skyborn.
5) Games without replays will not be considered.
6) Disconnects - less than 3 minute D/C's can be replayed, the first time, repeated d/c's are disqualifications, and any matches where a d/c happens mid/late game will likely need to be reviewed.
7) Seeding will be determined based on previous Kaze/Lore results, and new participants will be ranked based on their sc2ranks profile.
8) In an effort to keep this competitive for the majority of the players and true to the intention of the tournament (a Diamond and lower tournament for tankspotters), we MAY have to disclude players if we feel they will take away from the tournament. (You are still able to sign up if you are above diamond level, we just want to make sure you understand that tournament entry will be at our discretion for fairness sake).
9) Observers are prohibited under every circumstance unless accompanied by myself, Lore, or another designated tournament director for casting purposes.
10) Once you select a race for your first match in the round of 64, that is the race you are expected to stay with the rest of the tournament, this includes selecting random (you have to be random the rest of the tournament if you go random in ro64).
MLG Metalopolis (4 player medium map, No Close positions, neutral supply depot at base of ramp to prevent early wall in)
MLG Shattered Temple (4 player medium map, No Close positions, neutral supply depot at base of ramp to prevent early wall in)
MLG Xel’Naga Caverns (2 player small-medium map, Neutral supply depot at base of ramp to prevent early wall in)
Blizzard Shakuras Plateau (Ladder version, 4 Player Medium-Large map, No more back door rocks into main connecting south-south, north-north bases)
Tal'Darim Altar LE (Ladder edition, 4 Player Medium-Large map, 2 Base easily defendible with 3rd in close proximity)
TSL3 GSL Terminus RE (4 Player Large map, Circular Symmetry map, 3 bases easily defend-able)
GSL May Crevasse (4 Player Medium-Large map, Circular Symmetry, natural is easily taken/protected, 3rd base just below main ramp, long ground distances can be made shorter via destructible rocks)
GSL May Crossfire SE (2 player, Medium sized map, 2 narrow pathways that segment the map across many ramps and high/low ground areas)
The MLG map pool on Battle.net has been updated; to access this map pool, including the non-ladder maps, simply search for "MLG" on the StarCraft 2 map selection screen.
GSL maps can be found via searching GSL in the custom map pool. Make sure you download the exact named version above and no other variation.
Reporting a win
Due dates: 1 week from th tuesday the round is started. Tournament officially starts on May 24th, 2011.
Once a match (a full best of X) has been completed, the winner needs to report it to Kazeyonoma, Lore and Skyborn, via PM. This must include the replays of all games played. This can be done through a site such as gamereplays.org or any other reasonable file hosting method (althought gamereplays.org is preferred)
. Should they feel it necessary, the loser has until the match deadline to contest the reported win, at which point the tournament directors will look at the replays to make sure nothing funny was going on, and make a judgment call if necessary. The loser may provide their own copies of the replays if they wish.
In the event that you cannot get into contact with your scheduled opponent:
1. Make sure you're using any and all contact methods available to you. For now this will probably just be through Tankspot or Battle.net for most players. Please be diligent.
2. Attempt to contact them early and often. Don't wait until Tuesday evening to try and set up a time to play your matches.
3. If they're just not answering (hopefully this doesn't happen, but just in case): let the tournament directors know at least 24 hours ahead of the deadline. We'll try to get in contact with them as well. In the event that contact is never made, and we are satisfied that you've done everything you could to set up the match, we'll most likely default you the win.
Results will be posted to the Results thread: http://www.tankspot.com/showthread.p...ason-2-Results
