Alright you lot, you asked and we deliver.

A weekend Cup will be hosted on 31.10.2020 at 15.00 UTC (https://time.is/UTC) on Unknown server.

Prior to event, we will be taking in signups.
-The matches will be 6v6, with free teams
-Depending on the amount of teams will be played as best of three or best of five.
-No side swaps to keep it simple.
-The event is elimination, winners proceed to the next opponent, losers drop out. Exception on semifinals to determine 3rd and 4th place
-Characters can be swapped between matches, but not during. Every team gets at most one reset during the event.
-No horse archers this time, everything else is fine.

Sign up with account names and GUID, available on Unknown server by typing /me

Entry fee of 5k per team, total pot will be divided to the top 3. 15% to 3rd place, 30% to 2nd place, 55% to 1st place. Entry fees and donations should be sent to Event-Bank

I must say, this is without a doubt the worst event ever, I mean you're basically banning me from playing by making it a no HA event. How will I cope? I will have to disappear back into mercs retirement again.......

Alternative is to allow people to change classes mid-match when someone eventually pulls full HA stack, but I reckon that would cause unnecessary delays. The whole idea is to have the whole event be done over the weekend.

Erm, matches should be 8v8 tbh, and is the first 4 team sign up or 4 captains choose their team from a pool of players?

You sons of bitches are too lazy to organize anything, but when someone else does something you are going ape shit because event is not what you want it to be. Pieces of trash you don't deserve anything.

Why is it called weekend cup when the entire thing is being played out on a single day? Shouldn't it be called saturday cup? Hmmmm

Good idea to capitalize on the recent peak of activity, cheers for the time & effort Sando

 

Must say though, I agree a larger and clearer rule-set would probably help tremendously. If you cba making one of your own, you can probably ask the owners of past tournaments if you can steal part of theirs, I know I wouldn't mind. And if you ever need help with anything, I'd be more than happy to give you a hand so don't hesitate to ask.

 

Good luck!

I couldve put my criticism nicer, and infact i will edit my post to put it nicer.

 

But as someone who just sits on the forums and never actually plays the tournies that are hosted, you should shut the fuck up :D

I considered between 8v8 and 6v6, but decided that we are likely to get more teams with smaller playercount.
I think you have misunderstood something, there isn't a set number of teams that can participate.

6v6 nice i likeeee

Intention is to use a map that offwrs no advantage on either side, like Arena or Winterburg, but as this seems largely opposed, we are discussing changing that part.
Could you elaborate on how the rules are unclear? Battle settings aren't stated, but they will follow the regular settings what comes to flags and such.

It's weekend cup because semifinals/finals or other matches may be postponed to sunday should we run out of reasonable time at saturday

@Sandorra

 

It really depends what you want to do with that weekend cup tbh. If it's just a chill event to pass time then you can probably keep things that way but if you intend to make it as competitive as possible, than a larger rule-set covering the most important points about the tournament will help you dealing with potential issues once you run into them.

 

If you trust your capacity to use common sense once having to deal with any given situation, that can work too. From my experience, the more detailed and coherent your overall ruleset is, the easier it is for people to know what they are signing-up for and for you to have a back-up to look up to if people complain about the unfairness of your decisions.

 

Maybe I am just overcomplicating the whole process and it's not needed for such a 'small' scale event

Yah I mean, it's fine like it is, it's a smaller event and I love it. Thanks Sandorra.
If any arguments/discussions, Sandorra could just say "my event my rules, I decide" and that would be the end of it or they get disqualified. :)

I get it if ur using arena or winterberg, but that would make the tournament really stale after just playing 1 match. BO3 2 maps will go quicker than you think
