Welcome to the Two Pools Tournament Main event! Here is everything you wanted to know!
With the invaluable help of baronUKF, Chrazini and many others, LidaKor is presenting you the Two Pools Tournament! Two Pools Tournament is a 2v2 $1000 8-team single-elimination tournament featuring top-teams with a unique civ drafting system!
During TPT, each team will use Two Pools of Civilizations. One that they drafted for themselves, and one drafted by the opponent for them. This way, teams are able to influence their opponents' strategies by selecting weaker civilizations. Every game, each team uses one civ from each pool of his own. To avoid the weaker civ slinging the strong one, slinging has been disabled until reaching Imperial Age and researching Coinage.
The top four teams from Doubles Age Tournament auto-qualified, the other four was selected via a Round-Robin group stage.
Seeding is based on the opinions of the participating teams and notable casters:
