This is the official thread of the tournament. You can sign up alone or with a team. Players who don't have team will eventually make new ones together. When you sign up with your team, remember to give your timezone, the name of the team and of its members. If someone wants to help me, feel free to pm me. Also, tell me what system you want to use for the tournament. You have 2 choices : Spoiler Tournament System - One is the BO3 system : Team A vs Team B. The first who win 2 fights get to the next round. So there aren't more than 3 fights in each round. - The second system would work like this : Teams are divided in some groups, and every teams in the same group fight against each other (2 fights only). Winner wins 3 points, the looser 0. If the result is 1-1, then both teams win 1 point. After this preliminary round, best teams of each group will reach semi-finals. Rules : Spoiler Teams - You will need to setup a team of 3-5 players. - Each team must have a name (no inappropriate name). - Each team must give to the organizer its preference for the starting fights (1.NA, 2.SA then 3.Kalimdor for example). Hopefully, teams will never have to fight their third fight. - Teams must be willing to fight in each of the starting fights. Although there won't be a requirement to play as every faction. - Pick your team wisely, make sure that you have enough players who are going to participate in the fights in your team. Teamwork and coordination amongst your team will be the key to helping your team advance. Winning conditions - The other team gives up with a GG. - One of the team members willingly gives up a game and leaves (dcs don't count). If one member of the team leaves the game willingly that would cost the team the game even if others hadn't given up yet. - A team which doesn't show up without informing the organizer and the other team. An extension can be given if the other team agree. General League Rules - You may not play on more than 1 team. if it's discovered, said player will be removed from the league. - No alternate accounts allowed. - Behave well, no offensive comments towards others. - If there is a referee during the game, everyone present in the said game must ally him. - If there is a referee, games will be paused at the beginning to ensure that everything is in order before the start. - Players are free to communication with each other through Skype, TS, etc during the game. - The rules for each specific fight will be announced when the game is announced. Game rules - Teams can't creep islands. - Teams must stay in their landmass - The referee must kill all of his heroes.
