BT 7 on Saturday, August 15

Postby Atlas » Sun 02 Aug, 2015 7:04 pm

COUNTDOWN TO TOURNEY START
http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/ge ... sz=1&swk=1

Preamble:
MRT 16 went off with only the usual hitches, which is great. In order to help promote newer players, we're putting in another 1v1 beginner level tournament at the middle of the month.

We are going to be much stricter on who we are allowing in this time around. Some of you may be grandfathered in, but for the most part we're looking to mainly accept players with 500 or less hours on their account.

This is being done to preserve the integrity of the beginner tournament and ensure that players won't simply get stomped by a far more veteran player who shouldn't be there. The main goal of BTs is not to display amazing play, but rather to help newer players to build experience without having to deal with any hazing from the disgruntled members of the community.

As usual, the tournament organizers reserve the right to pull players out from the tournament at any stage they deem fit.

General Info:
The complete set of information including Brackets and Participants are listed in the Beginner Tournament 7 page.

Date:Beginner Tournament #7 will be held on Saturday, August 15th.
Time: 18:00 UTC+1


The tournament will be played in the 1v1 format.
The tournament will be welcome to Beginner (<500 hrs) Skill Levels.
The tournament will be played on the 2.4.2 patch.


Rules:
It's going to be a single elimination tournament and we'll play as many signups as possible.
Refer to the general rules thread for an overview.

Map Picks
Maps are always selected before hero picks.

The first match of a round will always be a fixed map as shown in the brackets. After this, the map pick will be the 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 round. Each player will have the option to veto a single map during a round, excluding the first match 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 on the top side of the bracket cell will lock in their hero first for the first match. Next game, the player on the bottom side of the bracket cell will lock in their opponent's hero first, and the order will alternate like this until the final game. In the final game of the round, the loser of the previous match will pick the map and then their hero first.

To check out who is on the top and bottom of your bracket cell, just look at the Brackets page. If your name is in the blue bar, you're the top of the bracket. If it's in the red bar, you're the bottom of the bracket.


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

Prizes:
Rather than picking from a selection of games from the vault, the Champion will instead pick 2 games from the entire vault and the same for the Runner Up afterwards. I'll get with them after the tournament and let them know what's available.

Registrations:

1)Narcolepsy

3)Dogman

There's no Lugganath Glacier

The internal battery has run dry, the game can now be played. However, clock based events will no longer occur.

Hello there! :)

I'd really love to take part in this however 18:00UTC is a bit of a stretch - that's 4AM for me and anyone else over Australia way.

I know you must cater for the masses and completely understand if you can't change the time (since I guess it could end up running a bit late for the European folk) but I was wondering if we might be able to push it on a couple of hours to 20:00UTC maybe?

As I said, no worries if not :) Thought I better ask though! And maybe I'd kinda feel bad if you did change it and I got knocked out in the first round :p Haha!

Cheers anyway!

That would be easily manageable. That's 7pm GMT, used to do tournaments around that time before.

Cool! That'd still be 6am, so not everyone's idea of an appropriate time to be up on a weekend but it works for me (very selfish I know) :)

Thanks!

I didn't understand if it's best of 3 or best of 5 and if the signing for the tournament started and where?

It's best of 5 in the Finals. All other rounds are best of 3. You can register here on this thread with your hero picks (can pick/change them later on) and with a link to your steam profile.

I've got finals this week, so the next two weeks should be easy enough to take care of the bulk of the work and just kick back till tourney day :P

As for the time, both it and the date are actually open for feedback. Mostly people just tell me saturday for the day, but as for the time feel free to suggest them. At the moment we try to host the tournament when it's mid-late day in europe, early-mid day in america and unfortunately our Asian/Australian/Russian crowd gets :( for now.

Always looking for suggestions!

In this instance we would make you a reserve player for now as it is a rather frustrating experience to seed people who in the end do not show up because of IRL stuff. Would this be ok with you?

Hi, new guy here. Is it too late to sign up for the tournament?

If not, I would like to submit my 3 hours: Warp Spider Exarch, Apothecary, and mekboy

Here's my profile, http://steamcommunity.com/id/BioTaq

Also, to be fair, I have an old profile that I gave to my brother and that has quite a few hours logged in when I still used it.
http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198004356324

I did the math and didn't know if vanilla and CR counted but I'm still well below 500 hours haha.

Nope, in fact you're early for this tournament! I take registrations all the way till the start of the tournament!

Thank you for having all your info ready to go, it makes things a lot smoother. A major thank you for total honesty with the second profile as well. It shouldn't actually effect anything, but the gesture is appreciated.

As a general note for all of you players, I'll be starting to update the registrations this weekend, and during that time I'll also be checking hour counts to make sure you're all roughly at a beginner skill level. From what I can tell so far, you all seem to be just fine so no worries :D

If you have anyway questions, please contact me on Steam or just leave a reply here on the forum and I'll get to you as fast as possible!
