World Cup - 2v2 Edition! 800 U$D Gtd

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)​


This Topic won't be edited, The latest rules might be found here

Sign Up Deadline : 20/10/2018

Prizes [ Click Here ]
  • 1st 30%
  • 2nd 25%
  • 3rd 15%
  • 4th 10%
  • 5-8th 5%

How will it Work?
The 8 highest Combined (TG+1v1 Rated)/2 will be automatically qualify to the Group Stage (OBS: Only one team per country will be allowed to be seeded as head of a Group). The other 24 Teams will be decided in a previous Qualification Round. With that a total of 32 Teams, will participate in 8 Groups of 4 Teams. We will then have 4 Rounds, where all will play vs all.
The two best teams of each group will then go to the Final Stage, or “Playoffs”.

Criteria to pick two best Team:
1) Series of Matches won
2) Team who won the series vs other tied countries
3) Number of Games won
4) Number of enemy-Home Maps won
5) Highest Seed

Is there a cap on how many teams each country can send? Is the idea for as many countries as possible to join?

For example, for the main NCs my bro and I will play with US, but if you want as many countries playing as possible, of course we will sign up for Ireland which is what we intended 4 years ago. (if we there was anyone else playing at that time)

Let the drama commence

Great idea, really looking forward to this :D
The 8 highest Combined (TG+1v1 Rated)/2 will be automatically qualify to the Group Stage
I assume this is current rating and not highest rating?
The two best teams of each group will then go to the Final Stage, or “Playoffs”.
What criteria will be used to rank the teams in the Group Stage?
Will you only get points if you win a series or also if you lose the series but take a map of the other team?
What happens if there is a tie between two teams?

Hi! As many countries per team may sign up as they want! They will face each other on the qualification stage, in order to leave as many countries in the group stage as possible! The idea is to have at least 32 countries represented

Series won is what counts, W-L should count as a tie brake :smile:
Rated will be checked on the date of the seeding! and highest won't matter in the equation! This is to encourage players to play if they want a spot in the group stage




Remember that I'm simply a player who loves the game and is trying to give back, so I really really appreciate this feedback in order to make the rules better, and a better environment for everyone!

Would be cool to have a silver group stage with final stage aswell, for all those teams that can't qualify.
This is actually a great idea! If I get anyone to be a Co-Admin or someone who can help me with the organization of it, will definitely try to do it! I can't do it alone though, would be too much work for me!


Hola river,hay requisitos con el ranking de cada uno?osea puede participar cualquiera?
Remember in order to sign up you have to know english, so you can schedule and understand the rules!
There is not a minimum rated required to sign up! There is however a max of 128 Teams because of the time frame. Now I don't think it will excede that, but if it does, I will cut the lowest rateds of the most represented countries out!

Cheers

I'd suggest to add more variables, in case the W-L is a tie as well, so have series won indeed as first, then amount of games won, then the score between the tied players, then who took the most games of the top 3 or top 4 if there's still a tie

I'm not a pro on this, so i'm sorry if what I'm thinking is wrong and please expand on how to correct this!

What I was thinking is that the criteria is always this one:
1) Points
2) W-L
3) The team who won the series vs each other pass

What do you mean with points? Is that the series the teams won or the games the teams won?
If it is the series won, then it's pretty similar to my proposal, but I have a 4th one, since there is a small chance that there is a three-way tie with the same W-L and teams who won a series vs each other

I didn't see 5 team in a group so often, because if one week AvsB CvsD then either E no game to play or some team need to (schedule and) play two series.
Maybe we can see how many countries sign up first, and then think about 4 or 5 teams each group. Will top8 team + 24 countries be filled? What if 24~32 countries? (Info: 37 countries signed up NC17)
I'll recommend if less than 32 countries sign up then hold some group in 4 teams to simplify everything.
Btw, group stage is Top 8 seeding + X different countries, so for example if Brazil have two team seed top 8 then they can have three teams in this tournament right?
(edit: re-read the rule, seems like only one team in top, all other teams go to qual and fight one team out)

For group stage tie-break, 2 team tie is very easy
But need to think about when 3 (or more) team tie, how many point 2-0 get? 2-1? 1-2? 0-2?
Can be 3 2 1 0, can be 2 2 1 0 (=Wins), can be 2 1 -1 -2 (=W-L, and equal to 4 3 1 0)
First see the point between ties, if still cannot decide who advance then look into whole group.
Although it's too hard to happen, rule better says what will happen if really all the things really tie, addition 3 match? Seeding? high seeding two team addition match? Maybe the last one is the best.

For the match setting, G5 in BO5 and G7 in BO7 won't have a "losing team", G5 in BO7 also can be no losing team.
And if one team lead 3-0 in BO7, the other team have up to 4 home maps vs leading team only 1 not seems so fair.

Thanks for the comments!

Edited: Group will be formed of 4 countries, not 5 anymore to make scheduling and playing easier! A total of 32 Teams will play the Group Stage, with at least 24 Nations being represented!

Edited 2: Criteria to advance in the Group Stage now is explicit
