Hey all, so we've posted about this tourney before but theres been some pretty major updates so we decided to redo the post. We also have a banner now which is awesome. Keep in mind that signups close at the end of this weekend November 3rd at 23:59 EST. The main changes are below and if you guys want to sign up or want to know more about the tournament, you should join both my discord and tatoh's, links will be below.
Will provide some information about each league as well as the rating required for it. Some of this information is redundant, so take it as kind of a recap as well.
NOTE that there is some small gaps between the leagues, if a team falls in those gaps, the admins and the players involved will discuss and decide which league they will join. This is to give us a bit of leeway and subjectivity to help balance out the leagues.
Bronze League: Combined Rating of under 3000
This league will be quite standard, single elimination bracket with 2v2 BO5 all the way until the final, where we will have a BO7 3v3, by giving each team Hera or Tatoh. The winning team of the league gets 1 hour coaching prize from either Hera or Tatoh. Rating difference between the teammates should be at least 300, unless the admins allow otherwise. We will probably have a 32 or a 64 team tournament for the bronze league. All games played on voobly.
Silver League: Combined Rating from 3100-3800
This league will be the hardest to balance since the rating spread can be pretty drastic. To be as inclusive as possible we decided to split the silver league bracket in two. One side will be the stronger half, and the other the weaker half. The winning team in each side would be rewarded with the prize of 1 hour coaching from either Hera or Tatoh. This way when we combine the bracket together, the semi finals of each side will actually serve as the finals. All sets will be 2v2 BO5. Just to keep things interesting, we will then play a fun grand final between each side’s winner. This grand final will be a 3v3 BO7 and we will give each team Hera or Tatoh. Rating difference between the teammates should be at least 300, unless the admins allow otherwise. We will probably have a 16 or 32 team tournament for the silver league. All games played on voobly.
Gold League: Combined Rating over 4100
This league will be reserved for the highest level entries. Rating difference between the teammates should be at least 400, unless the admins allow otherwise. We are hoping to pair top experts such as Viper, Daut with 1700-1800 level players. However it can also include for example a 2300 with a 1900 rated player. We will have an 8 team tournament for the gold league.
GOLD LEAGUE WILL BE PLAYED ON AOE2 DEFINITIVE EDITION!
Yes! We decided this tournament can be a great way to transition from voobly to aoe2 DE. That being said there will be a few differences in this league in comparison to the others. Firstly, it will start upon release of the game, which is November 14th. Also anyone signing up for this league MUST be able to play aoe2 DE upon release to ease the scheduling process. The sets will be 2v2 BO5 until the finals which will be 2v2 BO7. Hera and Tatoh may play in this league in seperate teams.
For any further info please join the discords.
