I assume the rules are mostly copy pasted from Nomad Battlegrounds right? so nothing new i assume?
Also, there are too much matches imo
It should start with Bo3
Tourney hosts needs to understand that players have school, university, work etc. playing a 4 hour match with 5 games sometimes just dont fits for everyone. But that might only be my opinion

^Because they might reveal important information to their stream cheating opponents or just play slightly worse with audience watching and they are, after all, dumb children who must be protected by the administration for their own good. Rules should also force players to sleep at least 8 hours every night, eat their veggies, and abstain from drinking any alcohol during the tournament.

(Ok, there might be some other, sensible reason too, but I guess this "no streaming by players" rule is just some trend that has arbitrarily caught on)

dont forget the daily mental training and the low-carb food for maximum power.

Why are players not allowed to stream their POV? Asking for a friend.
It happend in the past that players just signed up because they were able to stream their games. So it wasnt really taken seriously and i dont want this to happen again. Even though this isnt a 10k $ tournament i hope to see players trying their best. :smile:

Just for clarification: If someone of the signed-up players reaches a rating of 2401 or higher before the sign-ups end/seeding is done, he wont be able to participate.

Players will have to manage their rating quite carefully then during practice games

this tournament is aiming mainly for players with a rating of around 2k2 max. so i put 2k4 as highest achieved to give some space. and none of the signed-up players has reached this rating yet once in their life. So would be bad luck if it happens exactly rigth now. And just in case they will have to play unrated or match stats only to not take any risks.

That's like... against the spirit of the rule? If I was 2399 and started playing unrated just to stay below the rating limit regardless of my strength or form it wouldn't be fair, would it?

The problem is i cant control that and players have the possibility to do so. but sign-up stage is just 2 weeks long and i dont expect someone to make such big jumps in those 2 weeks to get significantly stronger in a way it would become an advantage for this player.

I didn't find in vvhat order are players banning civs in the lobby before the games. If it's player A, player A, player B, player B - then B has good advantage - banning 2 civs of the opponent on those maps is a major tell.
