DemEyesRed will be the only admin


REs:
One RE for each player during the best of 5. Two REs during the grand final (best of 7)


Admin RE:
To keep it simple, admin REs are what are most expected from tournaments and obvious things such as bugged resources. Upon seeing bugged resources or anything you may consider an Admin RE, pause and contact the admin. The Admin himself will message the player upon noticing a bugged map. It is optional to the player whether to take an Admin RE or not.

Map:
DERAC_Arena

• Most units and objects have been changed to fit the middle eastern theme.
• The elephants have the same amount of food as a standard boar (340 food).
• The speed of the elephants has been slightly decreased to make up for the faster attack animation.
• Extra resources can no longer spawn unfairly inside a players base.
• Elephants and Zebras will always spawn inside the walls.
• One of your starting goats will always start in your possession.

STREAMING POLICY:
The showmatch will be streamed on my own twitch channel exclusively. Other streamers are not allowed to stream this showmatch on twitch. Players may stream their POV on panda.tv, egame.qq.com and douyu.com. I have a certain set of co-casters invited (some of which being the ones you love the most) and will reveal the list of the names, once the players' registration is completed.

PRIZE POOL:
There is a prize pool of $350 for the winner provided by me & my stream viewers. (As I have received a total of $50 as additional donations from my stream viewers)

1st - $175
2nd - $88
3rd - $58
4th - $29

In case you are interested in increasing the amount , feel free to write me a message.

Since the tournament is quite small and arena is a map in which civs play a bigger role than arabia , wont it be better to make the quarters and semis bo7 and the finals bo9 ?

It's a misconception in aoe world. Anything longer than BO7 doesn't add value and just causes fatigue.

As a matter of fact, Bo7 on Arena can be extremely long already. I think that is the maximum amount that is appropriate for weekend tournament.

If I'm reading the changes for DERAC_Arena correctly, does this mean that neutral golds/stones can no longer spawn in the back of a players base? Because I really like that change if that's the case. Having one player with an extra 2400 gold that is pretty much unscoutable has always been one of the things that irked me most about arena.

Regardless, should be a nice little tournament! glhf to all clowns participating in the circus kappa

Correct - all resources will spawn in the middle.

Correct - all resources will spawn in the middle.
Did you also manage to address the issue that neutral gold/stones would usually hug the forest and are not actually in the center?

In an case, given teh change to the back resources, could you potentially release a version of this map that is not middle easter themed? I.e. has boars, deer, etc.?
