Calling all clowns and friends of Arena! "Arena Classic" is played on the custom map script "Vintage Arena" and brings back some classic Arena elements, where not all resources would spawn inside of the stone walls (Sheep, deer and even boars may spawn outside!). However, any outside resources will spawn the same way for both players, so even with the RNG, players should be able to scout and adapt their strategies accordingly. Scouting is intended to have more emphasis on this Arena gen, as both in-base areas and outside areas can vary a lot in size, resulting in both aggressive and booming matchups.
This event has both an open ELO prize pool bracket, starting at 150 $, and non-prize pool brackets divided by ranked ELO. All brackets are single-elimination. Furthermore, any donations to my twitch channel https://www.twitch.tv/akkalno from the time of announcing this, will contribute to the prize pool for the main event.
In addition to the prize pool bracket, there will also be brackets without a prize pool, split across even ELOs, as with all of my previous tournaments. Any player may participate in both the prize pool and non-prize pool event, one does not exclude the other. All brackets are single elimination brackets, 64 players maximum (unless the interest turns out to be even greater, in which arrangements can be made to extend them.)
The civilization setup will vary from one round to the other, and can be found described in the handbook, following this link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/136KqZb11uFjIuR20MosfqB61yP9DqeAvi7yLSGVYxcQ/edit#
STREAMING: The event offers open streaming up until the semi finals and finals. The semi finals and finals may still be casted by anyone, but we ask streamers to contact Akkal or Arzach before doing so, so that any live cast of these can be coordinated. POV streamers and casters are also required to add a command in their stream stating that Akkal (https://www.twitch.tv/akkalno) and Arzach (https://www.twitch.tv/arzachaoe) are the hosts, and to add the Arena classic logo while live. The command text and images are described in the handbook, linked above.
Any questions will happily be answered here, or in my discord. Hope to see many clowns showing up for this one!
