!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!REGISTRATION CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This post officially opens the registration for the 2nd team tournament I've organized on The Hive. The referee team and I have changed a lot of rules since the first one, so read the whole thread to make sure you know all the information. Don’t be afraid to use the #questions channel. In this tourney, you'll be competing in teams of 3 where you can choose your own team members, so get your friends together! For others that sign up late or want to take part but don't have anyone to play with, we know it can be difficult to find a team mate. You can register alone and we’ll invite you to the discord and create a text channel where you’ll be able to talk with other players who are also looking for teammates. You might find your future team here! As in former tournament , to reduce RNG in a game already influenced by RNG the powerup are unallowed , 1st pick in a BO5 will cause game cancelling and 2nd in the same team will cause lose of round by forfeit. Of course, no cheating mod or glitch/lag abuse is allowed and will cause disqualification of your whole team if you use it and ban for you from future tournament. This rules also apply in case of non-fair play or insulting behaviour. Depending of your type of application you’ll get: A rank with your team name over others, when joining the discord The free-agent rank if you register alone, to have access to the channel: “seek mate” Format: This tournament will have a groups phase where your team will verse the other teams in that same group, then a final single elimination bracket with top 2 teams and possibly top 3 teams depending from number of registrations. How will the seeding work? The seeding will be based on average W/L rate of the team and in case of tie on the highest of the team. How will the group phase be decided? After the end of registration, we will divide the seeding list in 4 or 5 parts depending on the amount of teams registered, then use a random number generator to take 4 or 5 numbers between 1 and x (x is the number of teams by part), then between 1 and (x-1) and so on until the xth group. Like a true World Cup group draw. How will the match happen? Indeed, the former format for 2v2 teams hasn't worked will in the past, so we had to choose another format. We decided to keep BO5 but this time all players are in game and the team with highest sum of rounds reached will get the point. This means that no one person can carry the rest of the team simply by winning. It’s a real team effort! Let's say for example : Team 1 died at round 18-20-23 (18+20+23 = 61) Team 2 died at round 20-21-21 (20+21+21 = 62) 62>61 so team 2 with the point of this round, and we do that at each games. What’s the point system for groups? +3pts: if you win by 3-0 or 3-1 +2pts: if you win by 3-2 + 1pt: if you lose by 2-3 +0pts: if you lose by 1-3 or 0-3 In case of a tie, what will decide the result? If two teams are tied by the end of their group stage, the team’s "rounds reached" total will be taken into account.With that being said, get out there and find your groups!
