I am proud to announce that I am hosting Sand Box Masters, a 4 vs. 4, single-elimination Age of Empires II DE tournament played on Chrazini's King of the Desert 3 Arabia map script.
For full rules and settings please read the guide by clicking this link
The tournament will be broken down into 3 skill brackets:
This is a community tournament so Elo will be capped at 1999 (1v1 DE). Brackets are based on 1v1 Elo on AOE II DE.
General Format / Civ Draft:
All games will be played on King of the Desert 3 Arabia which you can download from this link (you can also find it natively in-game by going to Mods)
Each round will be a best of 3 game match. Each round your team captain will do a civ draft with your opponents captain to determine civilizations for the round. The draft preset can be found at the following link (both teams start with 2 global bans and 2 snipes mid-way through the draft, you might want to practice once or twice before the tournament).
Sign-Up Process + Timeline:
Anyone that wants to join should A). Read the guide carefully and fully B). have a team of at least 4 players C). a designated team captain D). a team name and E). some weekend flexibility for scheduling (this is only because it can be painful to schedule 4v4 matches--if you have no flexibility this is not going to be a great tournament for you and you risk having your team disqualified).
Tournament will start on September 15. The round of 16 and quartersfinal rounds will take place starting September 15 and September 29, respectively (see graphic below). The Semifinals and Finals will be played in October. By playing in this tournament you agree and acknowledge that recordings of your games may be broadcast on Twitch.TV.
Players will need to present links to their AOE2.net profiles upon registration. Teams need not sign-up for a particular bracket, I will use the highest-rated player on each team to determine seeding. I will also look at historical ratings to determine ratings. Please have at least 20 1v1 games played before entering this tournament.
Please join my discord TrouT City to register your team. This is also where you will post results and check up on brackets. Announcements and links to streamed matches will also be posted here regularly.
