The format is simple, to be played on the DE platform. all rounds up to the semi-final are to be Bo3. With the semi-final being a Bo5 and the Final a Bo7. Depending on Interest, we could well make this a double-elimination tournament.
The maps and settings are as follows;
Map draft, each player in the Bo3 must pick 2 home maps each. With the Bo5 each player picking 3 home maps each. Highest seed picks first, alternating until each player has picked 2 maps (or 3 in case of Bo5).
Free civilisation pick, with no repeats, additionally, each player may globally ban 2 civilisation each, with the higher seed banning first. This must be completed after the map draft.
First game is always Arabia.
Each player will be allowed 1 restart each up until the final, where they will be granted 2 each. A restart must be called before or on minute 4 in-game time.
In the highly unlikely event of a bugged map, an admin-re can be asked for (this will not affect the number of restarts you have). In this case it is up to the player to recognise the bugged map, a player must pause and ask an admin to take a look. An admin-re cannot be asked beyond 5 minutes in-game time.
Laming: Boar laming will be allowed, the only anti-laming rules are, no deletion of straggler trees, unless it is apart of a wall, and no deleting fish.
Seeding: You will be given a seeding based on a mixture of your current 1v1 DE rating AND your highest DE 1v1 rating. Seeding will be done on Sunday 26th April, with the bracket released the same day.
Entries close on Saturday 25th April, with the first round to take place from Monday 27th April to 4th of May.
Each round players will have 1 week to play their games. (If a game cannot be completed in time then message an admin and arrangements can be made)
