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

Time Frame:
Administration:
Sign Up Deadline : 20/10/2018
Seeding: 21/10/2018
Brackets: 21/10/2018 [ The 8 Highest-Rated Teams, get a spot in the group stage automatically ]

Qualification Stage:
Round of 96: 22 Oct – 28 Oct
Round of 48: 29 Oct – 4 Nov

Group Stage
Round 1 : 5 Nov – 11 Nov
Round 2: 12 Nov – 18 Nov
Round 3: 19 Nov – 25 Nov
Round 4: 26 Nov – 2 Dec

Final Stage
Ro16: 3 Dec – 9 Dec
Ro8: 10 Dec – 16 Dec
Semifinal : 17 Dec – 23 Dec
Final and 3rd Place : 24 Dec – 30 Dec



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

Great tourney. Just don't think it's a great idea to finish on xmas week + new years. Some ppl will prolly be travelling for 1+ month and won't be able to play last rounds :smile:

A suggestion to change thats is to make teams play 2 rounds in a week in group stage, instead of 1, since it's BO3, I think it wouldn't be so hard.

Anyways, thx for the tourney

Thanks for the feedback Bruh!
Do more people feel like this? Please let me know! I wouldn't have a problem in changing a little the dates if this is a common problem between players!

@ImRiver : you might want to rename the tournament to aoe 2 instead of "aoc" since aoc usually refers to old aoc without wololo kingdoms and old balance.

also, I don't know if you have shared the announcement of this tournament on Reddit too ( since not everyone checks aoezone religiously like we do.

cheers

Also I’ll recommend if the main name of tournament is “World Cup 2v2”, don’t use bigger font size on “Brothers in Arms”

Suggestion: Allow 1 change per team. [ Addition or Substitution]
Maybe only allow this before playoffs (Or before Group Stage).
Pros:
3rd best player could get some practice as they can sign up for another team.
If 2nd best player is not clear, the earlier stages could give an opportunity to determine that.
Best players could be retained if the B/C/D team doesn’t qualify. Potentially leading to better competition.
Cons:
Not very useful for countries without too many top level players.

Hi guys, I just wanted to say that any streamer that would like to be official streamer, but is somehow unable to add 20 U$D to the prizepool, don't hesitate on sending me a PM, and I can try to put the 20 U$D for you, in order to have more options for the viewers :smile: -
Don't worry, I won't ask you any questions!

Thanks everyone for the feedback so far. About the banner, I really like it like this so I'm going to leave it this way! Also, Poxo has been added as an Admin for the tournament aswell!

It's not like they haven't played together before.
The first one is a double negative, saying they have played before (like Robo already pointed out). On top of that, they not only played together but are also reigning MoArabia 2v2 champions.

I still see strong competitors from China and potentially Brazil and Finland (depending on whether/how they sign up)
