Improvement Cup V and Improvement Cup VI are two tournaments organized by Chrazini and me.
In the HIGH ELO CUP the champions will get 400$. In the MIDDLE ELO CUP the champions will get 200$.
The maximum combined rating for the high elo tournament will be 4100 elo.
The Viper as 2500 could for example team with a 1600 and join the tournament or a 2400 elo player with a 1700.
The maximum combined rating for the middle elo tournament will be 3700 elo.
Here a 2500 elo player could for example team a 1200 player or a 1900 with an 1800 elo player.
In the tournaments you will play 1v1s and 2v2s.
The tournament will start with two 2v2s, followed by four 1v1s (two 1v1s per player). If a decider is needed, the decider will be 2v2.
This means 5 maps maximum per player.
The tournament will run with a swiss system, where u need to win 3 matches to advance to the knockout stage.
U will play 1 series per week.
In the swiss stage u will face only teams with the same record in the tournament as u have.
The teams who will go 3-0 in the swiss stage will play a showmatch vs each other for 100$ in the HIGH ELO CUP and 50$ for the MIDDLE ELO CUP.
There wont be any drafting or banning for the maps. for each round we will give u set maps to play. This way u can prepare for the maps. U just choose who of u will play on which 1v1 map.
We will provide a screenshot/picture for each map in the tournament. (u will find it in the mappool thread)
There will be a mod for the tournament maps.
There wont be any civ drafts. We will give u for each 2v2 map 5 civs to choose from and for 1v1 map 3 civs to choose from. (u will find the civs for each map in the civpool thread)
This way u can prepare specific strategies for each map with your prefered civ.
