BT 6 on Sunday, June 14 18:00 CET

Postby Atlas » Tue 26 May, 2015 4:15 am

In keeping with the theme of reviving this ded game community, we're putting up a Beginner Tourney in the middle of June. We anticipate this to be a smaller sort of event, and the 2v2 tournament will still be done at the end of June.

Beginners will currently be classified as have 750 hours or fewer. We realize that hours alone sometimes isn't sufficient to judge skill, so we reserve the right to filter competitors at any time before or during the tournament in order to maintain the integrity of a "Beginners" tournament. On the fence cases will be handled by me personally.

General Info:
The complete set of information including Brackets and Participants are listed in the Beginner Tourney 6 Page.
Beginner Tournament #6 which will be held on Sunday, June 14th.
Starting time: 18:00 CET (12:00 EST).
The tournament will be played in the 1v1 format.
The tournament will be welcome to Beginner Skill Levels.

There will be a consolation match for 3rd and 4th place.

To enter provide the following information in a reply below:
- Your steam account name with Steam link. If you need help getting this, let us know.
- Your 3 commander choices or random.

Rules:
Refer to the general rules thread for an overview.

I'm highlighting this section of the rules in case there is confusion regarding hero and map pick order:

Map Picks
Maps are always selected before hero picks.
The first round of a match will always be a fixed map as shown in the brackets. After this, the map pick will be loser's choice. Only maps in the map pool may be played to be considered a valid tournament match.

No map can be played more than once within a match. Each player will have the option to veto a single map during a match, excluding the first round map. Maps that are variants of other maps, such as Pale Tooth Gorge and Green Tooth Gorge, will count as one map and can't be selected in the same round.

Hero Picks
The player in the top bracket will lock in his commander first for the first round. In the next game the player in the bottom of the bracket will lock into their commander first (<- it will keep alternating for game 3 and 4). To check out who is on the top and bottom of your cell bracket, just see the Brackets page. If your name is blue, you're top of the bracket. If red, you're on the bottom of the bracket.

In the final game of the round, game 3 or game 5 depending on the format, the loser of the previous game will pick the map first and then their hero first.


The 1v1 Map Pool
  • Ashes of Typhon
  • Calderis Refinery
  • Fedrid Folly
  • Green Tooth Gorge
  • Ice Station Obelis
  • Judgment of Carrion
  • Leviathan Hive
  • Quest's Heresy
  • Siwal Frontier
  • Green Tooth Jungle Redux - Fixed Version
  • Jarilo's Forge

Prizes:
The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will receive a prize of their choosing in that order:
Mass Effect 2
Bejeweled 3
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Solider
Far Cry 3
The Shivah
Bad Rats

750 is too much, I'd stick at 600.
The internal battery has run dry, the game can now be played. However, clock based events will no longer occur.

Actually neither Atlas or I have even over a thousand hours.

firatwithin wrote:Btw, what are these CET and EST? Where are these clocks blong to? Do they even a clock?

CET: Central European Time, EST: Eastern Sandard Time.

CET is five hours behind GMT, and CET is one hour ahead of GMT. Considering your profile says you live in Turkey I think you are two hours ahead of GMT and one hour ahead of CET.

Well,

I do have 2711 hours on my Dow 2 account, but I only ever played like 10 1on1s max, so yeah I'm a total noob considering everything 1on1.
Hence I'd like to play in the tournament, but alas I can't because on June 13th I'll attend a party with some folks.

Would it be possible to post pone the tournament to the weekend after the 13th of June or make the 14th of June a fixed date for the tournament?

If not, well there will always be another beginners tournament I guess.

Matyi, I have you down! I'll start updating this thread in the coming week.

As for Max's request, I'm just asking the people interested what date they would prefer. In your case, you say either the 14th or the week after which is fine. I hadn't considered the week afterwards since it's so close to the 2v2 tourney, but if the people like that date, so shall it be. Whatever the outcome, I'll let you all know within a few days.

Let me know what you think by either messaging me on Steam or posting in this thread!

Alright, we're gonna be doing this on Sunday, June 14th. Same 18:00 CET time as far as I've heard as well. The hour count will stay at 750 hours maximum as well for initial registration.

I still reserve the right to allow/deny any applicant on my own personal judgment.

Apo, Chaos Lord, Warboss.

you know my steam account, why i want to join and must justification for joining Atlas already so wont bother posting my steam profile here.
i came in 3rd last time (technically 2nd as the guy who was 2nd got byes all the way up to the final).
I wont let an OP unit win a game against me in 2 minutes this time, especially if the new build is out by then but i doubt that it will but oh well.

Alright bros, I got you all covered and I'll try to get with some of you personally to answer your questions. Look for them either on Steam or in your PM boxes!

Seeding will be happening sometime on between Wednesday - Friday, probably Thursday. If you people out there on the fence, please feel free to talk to me and I'll see if I can alleviate any of your fears!

@TigerKonigs you might want to make your profile public for a day so Atlas and I can see you don't have a million hours in game.
