Introduction

We'll be hosting tournaments regularly from now on, provided this doesn’t crash and burn. Things have been a bit stale lately and Mercenaries has so much potential to make tournaments more fun and interesting. The thought behind this tournament is to find the best duelists in Mercs, and also support the people actively keeping the tournament and the scene alive.

 

Tournament information:

Signups end: Saturday 24:00 BST

Start date: Sunday 15:00 BST

Server: In case of dispute, use EU_3. Unknown will also be available for the duration of the event.

Cost to enter: 3000 gold

Rewards:

Passing first stage: 1000

Passing second stage: +2000

Passing third stage: +3000

Gold: +10 000

Silver: +6000

Bronze +3000

 

Server provider: 3000

Co-caster: 3000

 

Max participants: 16

 

Rules & Regulations:

  • Duels will be first to 7 format

  • Ranged weapons, horses, shields and potions will be banned

  • No armor or builds are banned

  • No refunds

  • No looting

  • You must use the character you signed up with. Character based, NOT account based.

  • No changing builds during matches. You can change builds after matches.

  • Cheating will not be permitted. In case of autoblock the player will be permanently banned from the tournament and reported to the Mercenaries admins..

  • You are allowed to use the Swordsman class if wanted, but you’re free and encouraged to use your own character.

  • There will be a cooldown period for the top 2 players. They will not be allowed to participate in the tournament for 2 Weeks/Seasons

 

Detailed info

The tournament will have a max of 16 participants to start, if all goes well and there's enough demand for it we will increase it to 32. Each player is required to pay an entry fee of 3000 gold. The entry fee must be paid to the bank character named RageBank before the sign ups end (Saturday at midnight) and will add to the prize pool.

 

What we’re doing this tournament is a bit different than tournaments in the past. Instead of giving the full prize pool to the first 3 places, we’ll divide it between more players, to give players an incentive to participate and progress as players. You pay 3000 gold to enter, if you win your first match, you win 1000 gold. If you pass the second round (+2000 gold), you’ve already paid your entry fee. Anything after this is gold in your pocket, or pouches or purses, whatever you want; we don't judge. Securing first place will earn you a total of 13 000 gold (taking the entry fee into account) for a few hours work.

We also intend to support the people who go out of their way to keeping the scene alive. Therefore we intend to take a small part of the prize pool to pay server supporters, referees(if needed) ect in order to keep the tournament running for a longer period. We hope you all understand that this isnt due to greed (harrharr) but because I believe people behind the scenes should also be rewarded and not just the players participating. In order to prevent drama, I will not be taking a cut. We’re not sure if referees are needed at this stage, but if we increase the format to 32 players or do a season of 2v2s, referees will be required to keep everything running smoothly.

 

Heres the math for those interested:

3000 entry fee

5% of 3000 = 150 (5% transfer fee)

150-3000 = 2850

2850x16 =  45 600 Prize pool

 

First stage: 1000 (8000 total)

Second stage: 2000 (8000)

Third stage: 3000 (6000)

Gold: 10 000

Silver: 6000

Bronze: 3000

Server provider: 3000

Co-caster: 1600

= 45 600

 

 

 

Cooldown period

Keeping with the idea of getting as many participants as possible over a longer period of time, we’re introducing a cooldown period for the top 2 players of each week. The cooldown will be 2 weeks. Once the two weeks have passed they can sign up again.

 

The tournament will be played on Sundays @ 15:00 BST. Once 16 players have signed up, and the entry fees have been paid the tournament will be hosted on the following Sunday. The bracket will be created on stream, (www.twitch.tv/greedalicious) to ensure fair competition. This will be done roughly 20 minutes before the tournament starts. The bracket will only be posted on Discord, so make sure you’re in your designated room before 15:00 BST. There will not be a seeding in place.

 

The tournament is set to be played in a couple of hours, and is expected to last a maximum of 3 hours for the full tournament to wrap up. Since this is the trial phase for duelling, it could take less time than that, but it shouldn’t take more than 3 hours.

 

Players are required to show up on Discord (https://discord.gg/GpEDcU) and join their assigned channel in order to communicate with the admins and their opponents. Failure to show up on discord will result in a disqualification from this week's tournament. There will not be any refunds.

 

You’re free to use either Mercenaries_EU3 or Unknown to perform your duels, however you must alert an admin before the duels begin using the discord channel #score-report-and-scheduling channel. This is in case the streamers are interested in streaming the fight. Referees are not required for duels to happen, however we expect the scores and screenshots to be posted in the before mentioned channel.

 

Delaying matches for any reason will not be permitted and will result in a disqualification. Players are expected to play fairly, and avoiding the fight will be punished. For example a dagger assassin are not allowed to simply run away and be an annoyance. We hope we dont have to ban cheese builds, but if we have to, we will.

Players are also encouraged to record their matches. Keep in mind there will be some downtime between duels so please be patient while waiting for the bracket to be updated. The bracket will be posted and updated on the Discord channel #announcements. Feel free to talk in the #general text room, and of course watch the stream live.

 

Administration team and support:

Greedalicious, admin, host and commentator

Raven, admin, co host, co-commentator

Krex, server donator

 

Important links:

Discord: https://discord.gg/GpEDcU

Twitch stream: www.twitch.tv/greedalicious

 

Stream info

The duels will be commentated by myself and Raven on my Twitch channel. I also added an option to bet on the fights. How this works is by watching the streams, you will earn gold which you can then use to bet. Keep in mind the gold earned by watching is not the same as Merc gold. However you can send me a message and i will transfer the Twitch gold to your Merc account. The transfer rate is 3:1 so for every 3 gold on Twitch, you’ll get 1 gold on Merc. Subs transfer rate is 1:1. You can also transform your Mercenaries gold into betting gold.
