ELITE | 1851-2100
MIDDLEWEIGHT | 1551-1850
WELTERWEIGHT | 1201-1550
UNDERCARD | <1200
These are strict Elo limits. Placement is based on each team member's 1v1 RM rating using the "Highest Rating" (historic highest rating) on AOE2.Net. All members of your team must be below the Elo requirements, or else your team will be placed in the next highest bracket. Higher-level players are welcome to team up with lower-level players, but do so at your own discretion. Likewise, players that are over 2.1k Elo cannot participate in this tournament (as soon as I'm able to acquire some prize support I'll open the flood gates to the top expert crowd, but for now it's 2.1k is going to be the limit).
Rounds will be 2 weeks long. During the 2-week duration your team will need to schedule and play your best of 3 match. The Grant Finals will be a 1-week long round, in an attempt to finish things up before players leave for holidays.
