World Cup – Brother in Arms

I've been wanting to sponsor and develop a tourney for quite some time now, and I always loved the spirit of the Nations Cup or when people get to represent their countries! So I decided to do an open-tourney where the main expectation is for everyone to have fun while still being the highest competitive level possible!
The only thing you ned to sign up is to have one team-mate from the same country!
Tourney will be played on AGE OF EMPIRES 2: WOLOLOKINGDOMS (always most recent version)​
 
 
Bracket:
  Final stage teams will be seeded according to the original rating taken on 20th Oct. If an advancing team wasn't in the top two seed of a group, they will take the surpassed team original rating. Exceptions will be made if two teams from the same country advance. In order to have a World Cup format where only one team per country is represented in the top 8, they will face each other in Ro16, and play a BO7 instead of a BO5.
  Games will be as following (challonge version: https://challonge.com/aoe2worldcup )
 Seed 1 vs Seed 16
 Seed 8 vs Seed 9
 Seed 4 vs Seed 13
 Seed 5 vs Seed 12
 Seed 2 vs Seed 15
 Seed 7 vs Seed 10
 Seed 3 vs Seed 14
 Seed 6 vs Seed 11
 
 
Match Settings:
 
.Qualification & Group Stage: BO3
 Both team need to clarify the home map they want to pick before Game 1 (lower seed pick first)
  Game 1: WC_Arabia
  Game 2: Game 1 loser's home map
  Game 3: Game 1 winner's home map
 
.Ro16 & Ro8: BO5
 Both team need to clarify the home maps they want to pick before Game 1 by the order BABA
 Team B is the lower seed, and the first BA is for Game 2~3, the second BA is for Game 4~5
  Game 1: WC_Arabia
  Game 2: Game 1 loser's home map
  Game 3: Game 1 winner's home map
  Game 4: Losing team's home map
  Game 5: Game 4 loser's home map
 
.Semi-Finals, Final, Bronze Match, Same Country Match: BO7
 Both team need to clarify the home maps you want to pick before Game 1 by the order BABABA
 Team B is the lower seed, and the first BA, the second BA, the third BA is for Game 2~3, 4~5, 6~7 respectively.
  Game 1: WC_Arabia
  Game 2: Game 1 loser's home map
  Game 3: Game 1 winner's home map
  Game 4: Losing team's home map
  Game 5: Another team's home map
  Game 6: Losing team's home map
  Game 7: Game 6 loser's home map
 
.Home maps cannot repeat and cannot be WC_Arabia
.It's both team's responsibility to check you are using WC_ version and home maps are in the Map Pool
Any game played on a wrong version or a wrong map will be asked to replay
."Hidden Civilizations" must be selected in the room settings
.Choosing "Random" or "Team Random" is not allowed
.A team cannot pick the same civilization twice in the same Match-Up
 If Team A pick a wrong civ vs Team B
  (either repeat from previous games or both player use same civ in one game)
  1. Team A -1 Re. If already use it then Team B +1 Re.
  2. Team A re-pick one civ to replace the wrong civ and tell Team B, Team B can change their own pick.
 If one team pick wrong civ second time in a series, admin lose for this series would be given.
 If both team pick wrong civ in the same game, then just re-pick, nothing happen.
 
 
Rules:
 
.Restarts
In a Best of 5 each team is awarded one restart each.
In a Best of 7 each team is awarded one restart each.
A restart must be requested before minute 4:00 game time (remember that this is shorter than real minutes). When a game is restarted, every player must chose the same civilizations as in the previous attempt. It is also not allowed to swap players.
 
.Bugged Map Restarts
  If a player starts with a stuck villager, his team may decide to restart the game, but this must be said during the before minute 1:00 game time. A restart requested due to a stuck villager does not count as one of the restarts awarded before a series.
  A team can request bugged map restarts during the first 4 minutes (game time). A restart requested due to a bugged map does not count as one of the restarts awarded before a series. A map counts as bugged if at least one of the following is true, in case of a standard resource start:
 Gold: Less than 4 tiles of a main gold cluster are at least accessible on one side, extra golds are excluded.
 Stone: Less than 2 tiles of a stone cluster are at least accessible on one side, extra stones are excluded.

If TC fight happens intentionally then Admin Loss of this game will be given.
