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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
